Bollywood has a tendency to be 'inspired' by movies that are successful in other languages. And they don't always do a good job at it, here's looking at you Laxmii. However, here are 10 Bollywood remakes that were as good, if not better than the originals. And no, we aren't looking at problematic films like Kabir Singh and Garam Masala, but actual cult classics that we've grown to love.

1. Hera Pheri (2000)
This cult classic comedy film is a copy of the 1989 Malayalam film Ramji Rao Speaking, which in turn was loosely based on the 1971 television film See The Man Run.
