This is where Bollywood comes as a savior of your cinematic needs. So here are 6 Bollywood movies which were better than the south originals -

Nayak - S. Shankar's ‘Nayak: The Real Hero' is a Bollywood reinterpretation of his hit Tamil social drama ‘Mudhalvan' with its core intact. Starring Anil Kapoor, Amrish Puri, and Rani Mukerji, the movie was about how a TV reporter gets a chance to be a CM for a day and uses it for the betterment of the society. The movie is fast-paced Shankar's storytelling skills to give us a film that is both a solid entertainer and thought-provoking at the same time.

Coolie No. 1 - The golden collaboration of the '90s between actor Govinda and director David Dhawan gave us many awesome flicks and one such movie was Coolie No. 1. The duo found their inspiration in Tamil movie ‘Chinna Mapillai'. The movie was about a Coolie who hides his identity to marry the girl of his dreams and the result was a silver jubilee box office success.

Ram Aur Shyam - It won't be wrong to say that ‘Ram Aur Shyam' started the twin saga in Bollywood where two siblings with different personalities form the crux of the story. However, it was in a Telegu film ‘Ramudu Bheemudu' that director Tapi Chanakya first experimented such a theme which also inspired Dilip Kumar starrer 'Ram Aur Shyam'. The movie was a blockbuster and proved to be a milestone in Dilip Kumar's career.

Singham - After giving a new lease of life into Ajay Devgan's career with the ‘Golmaal' series Rohit Shetty went a step further and started the ‘Singham' franchise with him. The movie was an official remake of Tamil action entertainer ‘Singam'. A classic case of beating the devil in its own game, Ajay Devgn's Singham was a South Indian movie in its heart and soul and very easily surpasses the original in its popularity and credentials.

Drishyam - The original Drishyam starring Mohanlal has been made in six languages but fans of Bollywood will agree that the 2015 version directed by Nishikant Kamat towers above the rest. The screenplay, the cinematography, and the plausible dialogues are in sync with the fast-paced story that is literally a blink and a miss.

Hera Pheri - Priyadarshan's comedy ‘Hera Pheri' is considered a watershed moment in Indian cinema. Inspired by the Malayalam cult comedy ‘Ramji Rao Speaking', the movie was sensible and packed just the right punch at the right moments without forcing anyone to laugh with slapstick and mimicry tactics, which was so characteristic of Bollywood comedies.
