Bollywood movies that are based on a book

When directors and their teams get into making a movie based on a book, there is an untold yet very evident comparison between how the story plays out in the piece of literature and the cinematography. Bollywood movies have often been about telling stories adapted from books, and some of them have been really good at doing it.

Let's take a look at some of our favourite movies that have been adapted from books:

  1. 7 Khoon Maaf

    With Priyanka Chopra in the lead role and an interesting plot full of twists, this movie is the story of a woman who murders all her husbands. It's based on a short story by the legendary writer Ruskin Bond, ‘Susanna’s Seven Husbands’.

  1. Aisha

    Based on Jane Austen’s classic novel - Emma, the movie is a sartorial take on the book, that talks about the do’s of love and friendship and most importantly the don'ts. The movie when released, was way ahead of its time and still captivates the audiences with its subtleties.
