Satte Pe Satta - Bobby Talks Cinema Dot Com

Remakes are in news again. The latest buzz is that now ”Satte Pe Satta” is being planned again with Sanjay Dutt in the lead role which was perfomed by Amitabh Bachhan in the orginal in his unique style. However very few people know that “Satte Pe Satta” itself was a remake of a 1954 English Classic “Seven Brides For Seven Brothers”.

But here is an example where the inspired Hindi version is much better than its original. Raj. N. Sippy directed movie was highly entertaining with elements of a thriller also incorporated into it. And another memorable asset of the movie is the melodious music by R. D. Burman. The English version was also a musical comedy but the Indian adaptation surely scored above that in all departments.
The film is probably titled “Seven”, which is also an inspired name as there is a well known crime thriller classic featuring Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt with the same title. At least the makers should come up with a new innovative title.
Regarding the Casting, there would no questions asked for Sanjay Dutt as he has proved the comic timing he has for comedies, but finding the other 6 brothers surely would be a tough task for the makers.
Few months back there was also news of “Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam” being remade. Replying to that I wish we could leave the Classics of Indian Cinema in their Hall Of Fame and not try making them again in any form.  
Giving it another thought, i feel thrillers can be remade in a different style, even dramas can be remade. But its tough to make a comedy remake as it will be like laughing on the same joke twice. For first timers it may work but its indeed a difficult goal to achieve.
