Published On: 06 June 2018 | Bollywood | By:

Most Indian News Channels are flooded with a lot of news which are mostly crimes like murder, rape, robbery and many others.

9 Movies Which Inspired Real Life Crimes

Even though the culprits are caught their main inspiration will always be Bollywood films which gives them motivation to commit crimes.

Here are the movies which motivated the crimes:

1. Dhoom 1 and 2 

The movie which introduced the youth to the fast bikes and death defying stunts also motivated chain snatching, rash driving and many petty crimes. It has come to the fact that there was a robbery in Kerala which took place in 2007 and when the culprits were caught they revealed that they were inspired by Dhoom which had a similar scene.


2. Darr 

I love you kkk kiran gave chills to every girl who watched this flick. The film dealing with an obsessive stalker inspired an auto driver in Delhi to abduct a Snapdeal employee from Noida, make her fall in love with him and subsequently get married. Wow, a typical Bollywood story which is actually a nightmare. The girl was eventually rescued and the culprit is serving life imprisonment.


3. Khosla Ka Ghosla 

A comedy movie which deals with a middle-class father ready to settle a score against a corrupt real-estate owner by giving him a taste of his own medicine inspired a gang of touts who forged DDA files and duped a lot of people into believing that there is a land to buy for them.

4. Drishyam 

A chilling tale of an innocent family who become the victim of the judicial system inspired a man to commit a murder and hide the dead body the same way how it was done in the movie. But the body was later discovered in a decomposed condition and the culprit was later caught.


5. Shootout at Lokhandwala 

A gangster flick which was known for its barbaric violence and Vivek Oberoi’s award winning act shook the system in real-life too. In 2007, a similar like scene was used in a school where a bunch of 14-year-old boys smuggled a licensed revolver in school and shot a fellow classmate multiple times after school ultimately killing him. This incident sparked debate about the violence viewed by teenagers in the form of films which has a deep effect in their minds.

6. Munnabhai MBBS 

Who can forget this masterpiece from Rajkumar Hirani which not only gave us “Jadoo ki Jhappi” moments but also cheating hacks for exams. In the scene where Munna copies constantly in the exam inspired a 10+2 students to cheat in exams and also use technology as a medium to get full marks in every subject.

7. Bunty aur Babli

The desi version of Bonnie and Clyde which is not at all violent compared to the hollywood version gave inspiration to most of the married couples to earn quick bucks by robbing which in turn became a wild goose chase for the cops. They did not expect the ending to be like this.

8. Oye Lucky Lucky Oye 

A national award winning flick which was loosely based on the real-life Bunty Chor had won praise from the critics and inspired a bunch of hoodlums to tryout these exploits in real-life as well. The culprits were eventually caught.

9. Aankhen 

The heist thriller starring Amitabh Bachchan, Paresh Rawal, Akshay Kumar and Arjun Rampal revolves around a heist conducted by an ex-bank employee who hires 3 blind men to rob the same bank where he worked. This movie inspired a similar like incident in a bank at Mira Road Mumbai, where the robbers were pretending to be blind and robbed the money. The culprits were caught but the money was not recovered.

Warning: Fiction is best suited for films, not in real-life, be careful
