I had no idea this was even a thing, but I'm glad I do now.

Prime1571274d ago

Neither did I. Here's the 4 games-turned-movies:

1) Watch Dogs as Terminate Terrorism
2) Uncharted as Ek Tha Tiger
3) Max Payne 3 in Rodies 9
4) Assassins Creed

Blatent copies... kinda dumb... Thanks, Bollywood, for continuing to bank on plagiarism of one form or another.

Isn't Uncharted basically a Indiana Jones rip off to begin with? Max Payne, although it's one of my top 5 favorite game series of all time, takes a massive inspiration from old detective movies.

i bet you that the watch dogs rip off movie is better than the story thats told in the game....

@gamerfan0909

I do get what you're saying, but inspiration and influence are very different from plagiarism.

The screen shot doesn't show influence, it is completely imitating uncharted. Now, I don't know about this Bollywood plot line, but the marketing campaign is uncannily similar to Uncharted, and I wouldn't doubt the characterizations and plot-lines are also frighteningly similar.

I've watched Ek Tha Tiger...I platinumed all 3 Uncharted games. They can't be further apart. Uncharted is about a treasure hunter always looking for the next loot to make him rich. Ek Tha Tiger is about a RAW agent (Indian Intelligence) falling for an ISI agent (Pakistani Intelligence) and how that leads to a complete disaster in their relationship and diplomacy between the two countries.

Please do some research before talking out of your ass (to the author and you). Thanks, uniformed westener, for continuing to being ignorant and undermining any other culture/race that isn't Caucasian. White Power!

I'm sorry if I offended you over a mere mention of plagiarism, but my lack of knowledge about the actual movie has no merit on the disgusting resemblance of the marketing. Yes, I WAS WRONG to assume that the characterizations or plot might be the same; but a rip-off is a rip-off. If they're willing to rip-off a certain sameness, then why would they stop there?

If someone blatantly stole your work, would you come to the defense of the that? I would hope not.

Resorting so quickly to racist remarks makes me question your faith in hate. It's a silly conclusion that apparently not only westerners make. I can tell you liked the movie and that's why it irked your ire, but to abhor me so quickly shows you're as/more disgusting as you assume I am.

Yes, the marketing similarities are gross, and plagiarism is foul in ANY form; and that's why I wouldn't support any of those movies.

first of all,terminate terrorism is not an bollywood movie,indai is a big country and has multiple cinema industries,its an tollywood movie and tollywood has a past of copieng hollywood and gaming world and ek tha tiger was not an uncharted movie,only its poster was copied from it and rodies 9 is not an movie,its an tv reality show and its add's were copied from max paye poster and same is with assassins creed it is also not an bollywood movie and is an tollywood movie.

Bollywood has run out of fresh ideas for a while now, only good movies are those up and coming new directors/actors. Only Amir Khan makes come unique movies that are hit world wide

trywizardo1274d ago

That Uncharted ripoff looks nice, I might check it out. The rest not so much.

There was also Ra.One that stole a lot from InFAMOUS.

sourav931274d ago

Watched Ra.One. No link to infamous whatsoever. The movie is about 2 characters in a video game; the hero and the villain, coming into the real world and causing havoc. One of the powers (out of many) might be similar to that of inFamous (electricity,telekinesis), but not a single plot or theme link with infamous.
