Believe it or not, Bollywood industry is currently in the doldrums. Several factors come into the scene contributing to this latest scenario of Bollywood. So, what is making this robust industry have a gradual downfall?
Put mindless before these following terminologies: Script, Lyrics, Direction, Music and even Acting. The definition of cinema is gradually changing owing to these antic factors. Regarded as the most significant film industry, Bollywood still has a great chance to resurrect back. All it needs is a proper source helping to prevent from sinking.
And this source is none other than the influential Hollywood.
Read further to know the requisites that Bollywood needs to learn from Hollywood.
Mindful, sensible script
78% of the current Hindi industry movies lack good scripts. Most of the storylines make no sense and entail audience to leave their brains at homes. In apna Bollywood, we worship the stars.
But, when it comes to Hollywood, the script is God because they don’t make films to glorify and whitewash the celebrities. In fact, in American films, big stars end up doing even small roles, given the character is impactful.
However, here, producers conclude with mindless moronic scripts adding no value to the movie to rule over the economic front. The ray of hope is that there are even a few mainstream directors who are targeting both the mass and quality of their scripts.
For example, Karan Johar, an eminent Bollywood director, created a stir in the audience’s heart by his quintessential love story Ae Dil Hai Mushkil a couple of years ago.
Majority of the artists in this creative field entail much more professionalism. In Hollywood, people are sincere and competent than Hindi movie stars.
To sustain the world market and increase productivity, it’s high time that Bollywood puts in the shoes of American film fraternity.
Experimentation with new genres
This industry keeps little space for an experiment on films. It would be a lie to say that there are no directors who try hands in venturing new genres.
For instance, directors like Anurag Kashyap, Aniruddha Roychoudhury, and Neeraj Ghaywan are in a constant endeavour to deliver idiosyncratic content to their audience.
However, the attempt should be that majority of the artist forums must engage more and more into experimentation.
Better picking of actors
This is another major trait Bollywood must follow. Unlike the former, in Hollywood, every actor needs to give audition before fetching a role. Many don’t know that Brad Pitt gave audition for Troy before getting the role.
So, it’s high time, Bollywood should sign bigger stars for branding films.
Male dominant industry
Last but not the least, over the few decades, the industry is ruled by the male artists. Starting with actors, directors, technicians and even musicians, it’s a male-dominated industry in every square.
Breaking the stereotypes, Bollywood should welcome both the genders like American industry for maximum productivity.
This wasn’t a comparison, to be honest. Not even an attempt to criticise Bollywood for what-so-ever reasons.
The real motive is, Bollywood holds a lot of potentials, and hence, must follow a right path to create a magnum opus, making India proud.
