The two biggest cinematic forces of nature - Bollywood and Hollywood - can together boast of providing us with some of the most entertaining films ever. Both Bollywood and Hollywood have got their own set of formulas when it comes to churning out movies by the hundreds. But ask any Bollywood fan and he’ll admit that there is more than a generous amount of “inspiration” Bollywood gets from Hollywood. So, what if we turned the tables and imagined a scenario where famous Hollywood movies had typical Bollywood style endings!
Theodore Twombly becomes so heartbroken at the loss of Samantha that he visits the nearest temple on a stormy night and cries his heart out. Suddenly, the temple bells start ringing on their own, and from behind the idol appears Samantha in a human form. They kiss on the forehead and live happily ever after.
2. The Dark Knight Rises
After the explosive fight where Batman saves the city, he proceeds to have an upbeat romantic number with Catwoman in a meadow somewhere in Switzerland where they both run from opposite sides into each other’s arms.
3. The Wolf of Wall Street
Jordan Belfort, despite all his drug episodes and his misadventures, will realise, five minutes before the closing credits roll that his lifestyle was against his culture. In a moving scene, he apologises to his wife, wins her back and the movie finishes with a wide angle shot of the entire cast standing next to each other and laughing for no apparent reason.
George Clooney runs into a dozen South Indian thugs in outer space, probably led by Prakash Raj. They try to kidnap Sandra Bullock but Clooney kicks their ass, saves her and survives the entire movie.
The climax will be in the form of a narration, voiced by Amitabh Bachchan of course, which explains in the simplest terms the storyline of the entire movie. Because there’s no bigger crime than making a movie that the “aam junta” cannot understand.
Jack braves the freezing water and swims across the entire ocean whilst dragging Rose along - singlehandedly mind you - to safety. During the closing credits they will both be seen getting groovy on the dance floor to a Honey Singh number.
7. Schindler’s List
Schindler tries to be the passive good guy till the very end until he realises that being nice is for wussies. He then defeats 50 Nazis with his bare hands in an epic Rohit Shetty-style climactic fight.
8. Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump comes across a brilliant NRI doctor who magically “cures” him. He transforms from the naive simpleton to a smart, dapper muscled up hero. And yes there will be a dance sequence at the end where girls are going gaga over Forrest Gump.
Somewhere along the heated rivalry between the Autobots and the Decepticons, Optimus Prime falls in love with Megatron’s daughter. At the end, their true alien machine love proves to both parties that there are no differences that love can’t sort out.
10. Pirates of the Carribean
Right at the end Captain Jack Sparrow will reveal that he is an undercover cop working for the CBI sent to investigate the treasure smugglers!
11. Harry Potter
Voldemort, the hard-hearted tormentor of Hogwarts sees the error of his ways thanks to a dozen violin-led songs and dance numbers led by Harry Potter. He ultimately forgives himself for the loss of his daughter who was once married to Harry Potter.
(Yes, like Mohabattein)
12. The Passion of the Christ
The climax will be an item number during which all the Romans are kept incredibly busy. Jesus escapes during this time and takes revenge on all the bad guys!
13. Basic Instinct
It is revealed at the end that Sharon Stone is actually a misunderstood woman with a heart of gold who got into bad company to support her ailing father, her bedridden mother and her two spinster sisters. Michael Douglas marries her and lives happily ever after.
Well, it'll pretty much stay as it is.
