    last night i watched Sagai (1951).
    It was a rare treat, especially to see Iftekhar so young and Premnath as a young hero.
    A delightful revelation was that film's story & screenplay was written by a lady, Anjana Rawail which itself is quite a rare thing to happen in those times. BTW, she has also co-written 1976's musical hit Laila Majnu (starring Rishi Kapoor & Ranjita) with Abrar Alvi. Since this film was also directed by H.S. Rawail, I am drawing this conclusion that Anjana must be his wife. But that doesn't lessen her talent or achievements.

    Coming back to Sagai, while watching it I could n't help noticing two uncanny similarities with 2 of the Hollywood productions.
    First- when Gope, Yakub and Rehana are running to escape from the mob, they go and hid in a big box at the shipyard, just like Leonardo DiCaprio and his buddies in Cameron's 1997-super hit TITANIC.
    Second- the king always has a dwarf by his side exactly dressed like him and at times behave like him which reminded me of 'Mini-Me' of 1999's action comedy AUSTIN POWERS: SPY WHO SHAGGED ME.

    Now shouldn't we proudly say that Old Indian films were way ahead of their times and are still inspiring filmmakers all around the world.

    No one said that all of Bollywood is just copied, we do have good movies.
    Your first point cannot be said as copied or taken inspiration cuz it's just a co incidence. C'mon if a movie shows Thief running away from Police and some other movie shows similar scene, it doesn't means they took it from there. People have similar thinking ability, and over the years some small common incidents can be found.
    Second point can be considered if the dressing and character is similar.
