First of all, let me clear you that movie series are of two types: first is a prequel, and the second is the sequel.
The prequel is the movie having the same concept and the same plotlines. The prequel is not remade but having the same storylines such as Race series and Golmaal Series.
Sequel movies have been presented in many ways, sometimes the story continues with different cast and characters, sometimes the whole movie script and the genre was changed, and sometimes it is very similar to the original movie like Jolly LLB series, Krrish Series, and Dabangg Series.
Here we have created a list of Bollywood movie series with completely different stories.
These are the movies that completely changed its storyline and genre in their sequel.
1. Dhamaal and Double Dhamaal
Dhamaal became a comedy classic with many fun gags and awesome characters.
Makers made up their minds to reuse the characters in the second movie as well.
Double Dhamaal has a completely different script with the same characters.
For instance, Total Dhamaal is more like a prequel of Dhamaal with a unique set of characters in the movie.
2. Bhootnath and Bhootnath Returns
Bhootnath was the story of a family living in a haunted house named Nath Villa.
The movie was a family comedy that shows the relationship between a ghost and a kid. The movie focused on family issues and ended with ghosts getting salvation.
Makers decided to make a sequel of the movie, and they came up with a completely different script.
Bhootnath Returns is a more political drama that started when Amitabh Bachchan’s character was stuck into the procedure of getting into heaven.
3. Jannat and Jannat 2
Even the filmmakers were confused when they were deciding the movie title of Jannat 2. The story was completely different and they were planning to promote the movie as a sequel.
Jannat was a superhit movie focused on a man who wanted to become rich and got stuck into gambling and match-fixing.
Jannat 2 has a completely different story where a goon started working for police to expose the gun mafia in the town.
Both the movies are biggest hits in Emraan Hashmi’s filmography.
4. Aksar and Aksar 2
Aksar starring Emran Hashmi and Udita Goswami in the lead role was a thriller where a husband took the help of a person to get divorced from his wife.
The story is very twisted with an exciting climax.
However, Aksar 2 has a completely different script where Zareen Khan was hired to take care of an old lady but the situation worsens when Patrick reveals his true identity.
5. Koi… Mil Gaya and Krrish
Koi… Mil Gaya is a fictional drama with super fictional characters like an Alien.
The movie is a remake of the famous Hollywood movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. In the movie, an alien came from the spaceship and gave his powers to a boy named Rohit.
Krrish, the sequel of Koi… Mil Gaya is a superhero fiction in which Rohit’s son Krishna used his power to save the world.
Krrish became a huge hit in Bollywood and makers came up with the third movie of the series Krrish 3 which continues the journey of Krrish.
6. Don and Don 2
Shah Rukh Khan starrer Don was the official remake of the movie Don starring Amitabh Bachchan.
However, there were some changes in the movie climax as Don was alive and can be shown in sequels. After a few years, makers have decided to make the Don 2.
Don 2 was completely different and unique in terms of Bollywood movie standards. While Don was the mystery fiction, Don 2 was the crime fiction. It is a complete change from the original movie.
Even though fans are expecting the third installment of Don Series, makers have cleared the cutter saying nothing is going on with the sacript of Don 3.
7. Hate Story Series
Hate Story is one of the hit franchises in Bollywood with 4 movies in it.
While all the movies are famous for their intimate scenes and songs one thing can be noticed that the story of these movies is completely different from each other.
Hate Story starring Paoli dam is about a girl taking revenge from the boy who cheated her, Hate Story 2 is more like a love triangle, Hate Story 3 is about a man avenging the death of his bosom friend, and Hate Story 4 is again a revenge story.
