The original movie starring Govinda and Karishma Kapoor was released in the year 1995. It was a package of entertainment and was considered as one of the funniest movies of the decade. It received an IMDb rating of 6.6/10. On the other hand, the remake starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan received a rating as low as 3.3/10. A movie that is full of stereotyped and forced humor, it is time the makers realise that the audience has changed over time, so should their scripts!

With an IMDb rating of 2.1/10, this movie is a remake of the 1980 movie Karz which starred Rishi Kapoor. The original Karz received a rating of 7.5/10 and was lauded by the audience. However, the recent one with Himesh Reshammiya was not only a boring and excessively musical movie but also had sloppy acting. Seems like the extra two Zs did not work well for the movie! 

Main Tera Hero

This movie is a remake of a 2011 Telugu movie called Kandireega. With a rating of just 5.1/10, this movie was extremely non-sensical, and a mindless movie in the name of comedy. Be it the script, the acting or the direction, Main Tera Hero does not fail to surprise us with its extreme and unnecessary drama. On the other hand, the original Telugu movie received a rating of 6.2/10.
