It is said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. This must be why the Hindi film industry is known as Bollywood because it regularly turns towards Hollywood for inspiration. Is there any doubt that films such as Baazigar, Murder, Deewangee, Dharmatma and Chachi 420, to name just a handful, are reminiscent, to put it kindly, of Hollywood favorites. But we must give credit where credit is due. You see Bollywood never copies a Hollywood movie straight up; it always adds it's own brand of 'masala' and 'gana bajana'. Madhoshi is no exception!
The creative team in this case took "A Beautiful Mind" - and a neat gimmick out of "Face/Off" - and transformed it into a darn good modern Bollywood saga that is entertaining with enough twists and turns to keep one interested from beginning to end. Bipasha Basu gives a good performance in the title role of Anupama with strong support from Priyanshu Chatterjee and John Abraham. The musical score is entertaining as well, especially the playback singing. Also, there is a reference to a recent catastrophic event that is ingenious in conception but amateurish in execution.
If you are looking for a Bollywood movie that is a bit out of the ordinary, Madhoshi is definitely a good pick. Now I'm just waiting for a Bollywood filmmaker to adopt "Scent of a Woman". If there was ever a Hollywood movie tailor made for Bollywoodization, this is it. I see Amitabh Bachchan in the title role. The only question is what car showroom he'll end up at. Hoowah!
PS - If "Scent of a Woman" has already been Bollywoodized, do let me know!
