Ghajini copied from Memento ?

In the process of making a film, from an initial story idea, there are many steps through scriptwriting, shooting, editing, directing and finally, distribution to an audience. How about stealing the story idea from another language film, and then spicing it up and presenting as a genuine one. Is this cheating or can we call it as an adaptation. Over a period of years, I have understood that most of the famous Indian movie makers are just copycats of Hollywood films. Some film makers are copying from other language films of India. Copying is happening in all fields, say for example,story,  direction, cinematography, editing, background score, music of songs, etc. In this post and in future, I would like to reveal some of those copycats in all Indian film industry.
Readers may also participate in this venture by commenting and if you have a post to announce such an act of  copying, then please let us know.
