Bollywood : Hitting Dead Ends?

The world of Bollywood has always revolved around its different yet interesting content, flashy yet memorable songs and film making that touches and connects with the viewer on a personal level.

There was a time when Bollywood was considered as the film industry that was breathing down Hollywoods neck and many thought that in a few years, the indian film industry will easily surpass it. However, the trend that followed the magnanimous rise was a disappointing downfall, in terms of content as well as film making. Over the years while there have been certain moments which has given the view that maybe bollywood film makers are learning from their mistakes, however it only remains a hope.

The most recent trend that has risen has been the copying of content from overseas in an attempt to make it memorable with catchy songs, a move that has failed on certain attempts. On certain attempts even Hollywood actors have lashed out on their content being copied. Tom Cruise thriller Day and Knight was remade in Bollywood as Bang Bang starring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif. A most recent example is Salman Khan's Tube light which failed miserably at the box office.

Recently, there has been experiments in the Bollywood fraternity to establish whether certain content could work for their audience, however the results haven been disappointing. Jagga Jasoos a musical adventure movie starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif was meant to explore and open up  a new segment in Bollywood- however the general reception of the people wasn't that good. It can be argued here that maybe the audience does not have the temperament to watch such content and want to watch the same old good guy kills bad guys stories.

Another problem that bollywood faces today is their reliance on old content, which is then revamped into something which is considered suitable for today's generations. While many prefer the classics the new versions are doing well themselves. Same story lines are modelled again and again. 

As 2018 makes it final leap towards the end, the line up looks interesting for Bollywood with projects such as Sanju, Zero, Kalank and Brahmastra coming up, each reflecting and touching a new dimension for the Indian cinema. What remains it to gauge whether the move back fires or is accepted. 

The music of Bollywood is unparalleled, and doing quite well, it is the script of the movies however that is impeding their ultimate command on the film world.
