Anurag Basu's "Barfi" : From which movies it is copied?

After seeing "Barfi", I had the feeling that I have seen it somewhere. As a world cinema lover, I regularly watch almost all language movies and that feeling was stuck in my mind. Suddenly I came through this beautiful and informative post on and all my past memories started to refresh.

Anurag Basu has lifted or copied many scenes from different movies. Even music also lifted from different movies and songs. Which I like to share with you. Here we go.

1. Music:
1. The song "Aashiyaan" is inspired from;

2. "Phir Le Aaya Dil" is inspired from "koi Poochhe Hai Kabhi" by Asha Bhosle and Ustad Shuja'at Khan.

3. The BG Music is inspired from this Oscar winning short film.

4.  Here are some more tracks from which they are inspired (??) :P



2. Film Scenes:

1. See this scene from 22:22 from the movie "The Adventurer" starring Charlie Chaplin and you will immediately recognize the scene from Barfi...

2. The scene in which Rupa Ganguly, tells her daughter Illeana about her lover, is copied from this scene from the movie "The Notebook."

3. The scene where Priyanka comes and lies next to Ranbir, is again copied from "The Notebook."

4. The scene where Ranbir walks into a door and his nose gets bent + another scene in which Ranbir is sitting on a sofa with a dummy is copied from "Singing in the Rain."

5. The scene in which Ranbir is sleeping under the cover of a statue is lifted from "City Lights." Scene starts at 1:50.

6. The scene where a paper sticks to his hand and he tries to get rid of it is lifted from "Mr. Bean back to School." Scene starts from 08:14.

7. The bicycle chase scene in the narrow lanes is lifted from this scene from the movie "Project A."

8. The scene where Ranbir catches the bus from the movie "Cops."

9. The scene where Ranbir reads a nacked guy's newspaper is lifted from this Swedish ad.

10. The scene with two car headlights is lifted from movie "Mr. Nobody." Scene starts from 01:10:59.

11. I think that white rat in a rotating cage is inspired from "Black Cat White Cat." See it at 1:38.

May be some more scenes or Music are copied from some other movies which I or my friends have not seen. You can tell me in comments if you know such scenes or Music.

  1. Welcome Faisal Bhai. *This is awesome* Getting money copying stuff is ok as they give employment to many...but shamelessly getting recognition is sick...and the official Oscar entry from India...will encourage many filmmakers to copy stuff like this. :(
