If you are also binging on Money Heist’s latest season and been pondering over the brilliance of how these robberies are executed in movies then chances are that you’re probably in the zone where you are looking to watch more movies based on a heist to keep the adrenaline pumping. While there are some fantastic heist movies out there, here are 4 heist movies made in Bollywood which are super interesting as they are based and inspired from real life robberies:

1. Special 26- This crime thriller starring Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher is based  of the famous heist of the Opera House in Mumbai in 1987. A group of con artists posed as fake CBI officials and executed a tax raid at the Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri & Sons Jewellers store in Mumbai.

2. Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! –  One of the best movies and also Abhay Deol’s fine performance is actually a retelling of the life  story of the famous ‘Bunty Chor’ in Delhi. The compulsive thief Devinder Singh aka Bunty became a problem for the Delhi police when he managed to dupe them several times for a while before being caught. Bunty eventually became more famous after the movie was released and even appeared on Bigg Boss.

3. Dolly Ki Doli – Sonam Kapoor’s comedy movie based on a goon bride who marries wealthy men only to take away their riches finds its inspiration in several real life cases. As per reports, a robber bride from UP hit headlines when she was known to marry men and rob them right after the wedding! Several other women got inspired from this piece of news and followed suit, which eventually inspired the character to be written.

4. Bunty Aur Babli – Everyone loved the cute con couple Bunty and Bablie played by Abhishek Bacchchan and Rani Mukerji who try and dupe people off their wealth and even manage to sell the ‘Taj Mahal’  to a buyer. According to a report, it can be a total coincidence or probably the super hit was  loosely inspired from a similar real life couple in Nagpur. Sidhharth Jay Marathe and Maya Marathe were arrested for a fraud for Rs 500 crores in 2004 (a year before the movie was released).  The couple moved cities, duping and cheating people and even started a fake stock broking firm in Delhi where their racket was eventually busted.
