Bollywood is currently going through a phase where remaking and rehashing of old songs, movies are becoming the norm. Many experts and thinkers are not happy with this trend and want filmmakers to come up with original and fresh content.
Director Indra Kumar in an exclusive chat with Bollywood Bubble talked about a range of issues. Indra’s ‘Total Dhamaal‘ released yesterday (February 22). Indra was asked about remaking his old films such as ‘Dil’, ‘Raja’, ‘Beta’, Ishq’ and ‘Mann’ and the director said, “Why should I remake them? I want to get ahead in life.”
He was asked about whether he would give rights to any other filmmaker regarding remaking his films and he replied, “I will not give rights of any movie.”

But, on the contrary, ‘Total Dhamaal’ has the remake of ‘Paisa Yeh Paisa’, ‘Mungda’ songs and has received a lot of flak. The laugh-riot is the third installment of the ‘Dhamaal’ franchise and also has a special message regarding humanity. Indra Kumar has always spoken her mind and it is very refreshing to see that he is expressing his views forthrightly and candidly.
‘Total Dhamaal’ has done quite good business at the box-office. The film has minted Rs 16.50 crore on its opening day.
