Yes, I think you're right.  As I said yesterday, the plot elements don't
have to match in an Indian remake, but there are enough elements here to
qualify.  Amol Palekar's character is also straight out of WHAT A WAY TO
GO.  (I saw it when it was _new_--in a theater--so my memory is very
rusty.)
 
Thank you.
