i am glad that the indian cinema better known as bollywood is changing from the usuall romantic flicks to something more meaningful. And I am more glad when I get to known that the Indian audience is actually accepting the change.
I am a great fan of romantic movies but now its really time to make meaning full movies we have a whole bunch of romantic flicks to start with already. Dilwale dulhaniya le jaayenge to kaho na pyaar hai. With movies like rang de basanti, tare zameen par and 3 idiots the Indian cinema has taken a turn and I would also l8ike to mention movies like munna bhai series, chak de India and wake up sid and many more.
These movies have started showing the common man as the hero and not someone who fights with 100 bad guys single handed and not even get a single scratch on his body. This also reminds me of raj kapoor, v. shataram. The movies they made like shree 420, awaara, mera naam joker, and navrang and do aankhe baara haath. Where the common man was the hero ofcourse. They got their darlings in the end but they always showed how the hero’s never gave up.
Movies like rang de basanti where the hero’s die in the end gavea big message to the youth and same with the other movies I mentioned above.
I once read somewhere farha khan said she made om shanti om keeping her soul intention about the movie to entertain the audience. Yes the audience was entertained and such movies once in a while are needed but not all the time.
Movies where people can relate to are always big hits.
