Jan 6 2009'Back to the Future' Coming Back... to India

Ready for a Back to the Future remake? Of course you aren't; you just bought Marty McFly's hoverboard on eBay, and a remake might force you to question your loose idea of time travel that involves people slowly fading from photographs as their likelihood of existing drops.

Well, don't worry. This isn't just any remake--this is a Bollywood remake, and Bollywood remakes are crazy and irrelevant. From BTTF:

According to India's only Film News Service Agency (Realbollywood News), Back to the Future is set to be remade as the fantasy film Action Replay starring two very popular actors in that country.

India actor Akshay Kumar is said to be cast in the Michael J. Fox role and Aishwarya Rai in the Lea Thompson role. Obviously, the director (Vipul Shah) isn't aiming for Kumar to portray McFly as a teenager, since the actor is 41 years old. Likewise, actress Rai is 35.

A Bollywood Back to the Future remake starring a 41-year-old and called Action Replay (like the game cheating thing!) is not worth getting upset about. When this is released, we should all be downloading it and watching it with groups of friends, discussing how 12 musical numbers and Doc having four arms has affected the story. Let's save the angry petition for 2012's Back 2 the Couture, where Miley Cyrus has to go back to her parents' prom to stop her mom (also Miley Cyrus) from wearing a really regrettable dress.

(Thanks, Nate.)

I am SO seeing this. I love comedies. Rai is incredibly hot too. One of the most beautiful women on the planet, that one. I'd leave my wife, kids and trailer park behind for a piece of that sweet ass...

Bollywood is fucking ridiculous.

Great Scott ! ...

O MY EFF!!
WHY MUST THEY RUIN SOMETHING PERFECT?!

That guy should do a Bollywood Scarface instead:
"Saj élo dooooooo mai little friieeeend" ayayayaaaaaa *bellydancing*

I hope this never sees the light of day. If it does though i will end up watching it and will most likly regret it afterwards.

^^^^ immortalized ^^^

damn it!

At least it isn't an attempt to cash in on the name of the beloved series by making some Hollywood-crap sequel or straight-to-DVD mess. Let Bollywood be Bollywood, and think of it as an homage or reworking of the kernel concept. Bollywood puts out what, twelve times the movies per year that Hollywood does?

The female wog in this picture is fucking beautiful.

Shame she is up herself, and bollywood produces nothing but unwatchable crap because they don't realise that quality is more important than quantity.

Still, if anyone knows how much she charges for anal.....

@ tc - you should try to be more open to other cultures. it's a different culture and as so, it has different elements in it that aren't necessarily popular in america.

...that's what foreign films are all about.
