This one is a connect too.







Tell me what special quality connects these three films.

Happy connecting, and have a nice life, folks!


Everybody got the films, but not the connect. It is that all three films inspired other cult films, which were then remade in Hindi! Therefore, these are the original films, and the Hindi ones are a REMAKE OF A REMAKE!

Killing –> Reservoir Dogs –> Kaante.

Seven Samurai –> Magnificent Seven –> Sholay.

Memento –> Ghajini (Tamil) –> Ghajini (Hindi).

Was that too arbit a connect? Of course, Reservoir dogs was inspired by hundreds of other films, and Tarantino has accepted it. Same with Sholay.


  1. i can't get to the connect as such...
    the second movie is Memento.. inspiration for 'Ghajini'
    n the other one is Seven samurai..inspiration for sholay and china gate..
    i saw The Killing yesterday..n im not sure if it has been remade in bollywood...
    Though i guess the connect is something else altogether..

  2. The films are Kubrick's 'The Killing' (1956), Chris Nolan's 'Memento' (2000) & Kurusawa's 'The Seven Samurai' (1954).

    All these films are in the IMDB Top 250 list.

    The Killing was shot in 24 days and the Memento shoot was over in 25 days.

    I don't think these are the connects you are looking for, Arkadev :)
