Spare the classic films, guys!

I'm not a big fan of re-making old classic movies.
And our filmmakers keep proving me right.
The biggest names of Hindi film industry failed to better a classic.
The poor remakes of Don, Umrao Jaan, Sholay haven't brought home any lesson, I guess.
The remaking of Karz is another disaster. The movie may still make enough money to help the producer try more adventures. Because Himesh has his own set of die-hard fans.

But if you have enjoyed the Rishi Kapoor starrer Karz, you'll exactly know why Himesh's Karz is a disaster. There can be only one Monty, Rishi Kapoor. If they thought someone like Himesh could pass off as Monty, then they need some serious lessons in film-making. But I'm sure, the remaking of Karz has more business strategies than the film making plans.

But please spare the classics, guys. We have enough talented writers in India to try new stories and be more adventerous in experimenting, rather than being adventerous in re-making!

These remakes give us valid reasons to burn down theaters.

ZZZZZZ indeed.

Yeah Karzz is a disaster. True. But Don? it's a huge hit, right?
