Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron (1983) & Blow Up (1966)

“Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron" is unarguably, one of the best comedies made in Bollywood with an excellent star-cast and a hilarious script. It can be easily included among the most favorite Hindi Movies List of all time. The director Kundan Shah has made his place in the History of Indian Cinema with this highly enjoyable evergreen comedy classic.

However, there is one very interesting fact associated with the movie and its director Kundan Shah related to the mystery plot of the movie. In the movie, as Naseer & Ravi are taking photographs in a park, they unintentionally click a picture which also captures a murder being committed in the background. Spotting it in the photograph while developing, they magnify the important portion and get the picture of the real incident.
The same sequence is there in 1960s hit thriller “Blow Up” and the similarity rests here only as the English Version is not a comedy. So both movies are quite different to each other, with their contrasting subjects and treatment.

But here
Kundan Shah, rightly accepts the inspiration source and pays due respect to the fact by naming the park (where the murder takes place in the film) as "Antonioni Park". Because “Blow Up” was directed by Michael Antonioni.
