Raj Vardhan

Apart from the basic premise of She-Devil,all the other major happenings in Biwi No.1 is copied from an English classic.

Watch 1973\'s A Touch Of Class starring Glenda Jackson(in an Oscar winning role) and George Segal.Quite an entertaining film.The first half is very funny and witty.The second half drags and u can predict the climax from the very begininning of the second half but still the way the film ends and the scene with which it ends.....is just amazing and heartbreaking.

Tabu & Anil\'s story,Anil & Salman\'s story and many other scenes which u won\'t find in She-Devil,u will find in this film.

Bobby Sing

Thanks a lot Raj.
Will surely try to watch and update.

Hi! IMDB states that Baazigar is an unofficial remake of Akira Kurosawa\'s \'THE BAD SLEEP WELL\'
Bobby Sing

The plot is surely similar Samar Singh.
But you should watch both the films to see which one is closer to Baazigar yourself.
