Lot many people I know are fans of Rock, Pop, Trance and other music. Also the Hollywood movies. They say its an awesome movie. Beautiful editing and storyline blah blah… I seldom watch English movies for one n only reason that, its hard for me to understand the dialogues!! But another thing I noticed is, all these people blame the Bollywood and regional films sometimes saying they are crap and boring and contains only masala and mushy stories… The Hollywood is well advanced I agree, but why do we forget that our people are also trying its best in Indian Film industry. The good films are termed as “art films” and are given bad remarks. They are directors and producers who earn a living through the Film industry. They do need money. Shouldn’t we the people encourage them to bring out more and more good films, instead of blaming them as show off films? Instead the films having a night club dance are being boosted for “unrevealed” reasons! Personally asking, I consider lot many films from the directors, Sanjay leela Bhansali, Nagesh Kukunoor, Madhur Bandharkar, Ashutosh Gawarikar, and few regional films. My wish-list of to-watch films includes the following:
Corporate, Hyderabad Blues, Guru, Traffic Signal, Kalyug, Woh lamhe, Life in a Metro, few Tamil films like Kanda naal mudhal, Unnale Unnale, along with the English romantic ones Music and lyrics, The notting hill, The Holiday, and the Spiderman 3 and Pursuit of happiness..
I have felt most good Indian Films portray feelings and reality. But isn’t there lot many romantic and mushy films in hollywood too??? I love them for the simple plain storyline. The entertainment films are given more importance by the families and for the youth, the violent action thrillers, amazing cinematography and direction are the main reasons for shifting to Hollywood. Maybe Hollywood is indeed good, but please don’t blame our Film Industry too… Its just a developing country!!! Give ’em a break!!
On a side note, its comparatively easy to show action and thrillers, but very very hard to portray emotions and feelings and make people think of it!
