Is it a copy of...?


I read it somewhere that the plot of the movie is about an anti-terrorist group who happen to have a mole among them. I'm just curious, is this a copy of the Hong Kong movie Infernal Affairs <which itself is getting the Hollywood treatment, The Departed, with Scorsese at the helm>?

<SPOILER WARNING: IF YOU DON'T WANT INFERNAL AFFAIRS SPOILED FOR YOU, DISCONTINUE READING>

Is there a parallel plotline about a cop who is also a mole among the terrorists?

No...this is "Usual Suspects" meets "24"

Why do people have to assume automatically that a bollywood movie has to be copy of another movie, its true your find some element of the movie with others... but, its not a copy so stop trying to spread around rumors that its a copy... jeez give some credit to bollywood not all movies are copies.... people just cant stand when bollywood tries something new it has to be a copy.

lol, you've made us believe that people really don't know what they're talking about when they talk about bollywood copying movies. Its some sort of jealous or hatred because bollywood is the most popular movie industry in the world. Thanks for making our belief stronger abt those people.

Of coz this movie is a copy!!! It's a copy of some hollywood film that was made in 19-voetsek!!! I don't know what the name of the movie is, but I'm sure there's bound to be a movie about an anti-terrorist cell that is after a man named Jabwaal...no, wait...that's Dus, the movie in question. But then again, I'm sure there's hollywood movie where one of the protagonists has a sister who's getting engaged the day before he goes on a secret mission..no, no, that's Dus again. ah, I have it now, it was copied from a hollywood movie where these guys go to another country and meet up with a cop with wife probl...damn it, that's Dus again!!! I give up, can someone please tell me where the scene where there's a group of people fighting terrorism is copied from?
Wait I have it...I think it was this South African movie called Tsotsi (won an academy award, yay! Sorry, I'm from SA).
Hemantkhan couldn't have said it better, all you manage to do is make us watch more b/wood movies so stop hating!! Let me give YOU a word of well deserved advise, the next time you claim a movie to be a copy, make sure what the "original" movie is and if it's so bad, STOP WATCHING THEM!!!

Funny, in bollywood alomst everthing is a ripoff of some out of hollywood. The only thing I see as there cultural trade mark is after a lot of killing and bad acting...they dance.

I saw this movie, just to try a movie from bollywood. I saw a crossover between Matrix and a compleet ripped scene from terminator 2. I saw only that in the style of the movie, because the 'story' I did not follow, I was to amazed about the dancing and singing...

But at least people in Bollywood look like they really have fun making films.

I just don't get it why the copy exactly the same things that come from hollywood films. Isn,t the history of India not interesting enough to make a good film about? And why MUST there be dancing and singing in ever Bollywood production? Maybe I did not see enough Bolly movies to judge about that?

As I see it, the movies that Bollywood copies that turn out to be popular or good, they're just taking American movies, and making a couple of adjustments to the plot and making it for more Indian audience.

And why MUST there be dancing and singing in ever Bollywood production? Maybe I did not see enough Bolly movies to judge about that?

The majority of Bollywood movies have singing and dancing. The only 2 movies that I remember that don't have singing and dancing in is Chak De India and Gandhi my Father.

Also, one reason why so many movies have singing and dancing is because, besides that everybody likes singing and dancing, and it Bollywood's trademark thing, is that life in India can be pretty hard compared to many places like America or Canada. People don't want to remind themselves of that when they go see a movie, they want to have some fun during the movie. Sure, they might make a couple of serious movies that become really popular, but usually they like to enjoy a movie and take their mind of how hard life is. Atleast that's my theory.

Dus is not a copy at all....Anubhav Sinha always refers to Foreign movies...like Tum Bin - Bounce, Aapko ko pehle bhi kahin dekha hai - Meet the parents, Cash - Italian Job and so is Dus... but he never copies. Even Quentin Tarantino do this but theres no reason to call him a plagiarist or copy cat ...so is the case with Anubhav Sinha and his movie DUs
