‘We like the people who understand us but if they don’t, then we always have movies instead of them.’
Bollywood nowadays is not just about Simran and Raj, about fake actions, about love making and obviously not about the dance which has nothing good in it except the location. From 20s of 20th century to 20s of 21st century, if you try to sense the changes, you will know how much time have passed and it may make you feel old. Bollywood, it is story itself, a real one.
“Based on true story.”
Before a movie starts, this sentence could be found written our screens in many movies. If I talk about present year, in 2016 bollywood has taken a great turn towards reality based films, from Airlift to Neerja and Sarbjit to M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, all such movies have made a recognizable mark on not only on box office but also on audience’s heart.
The design of reality based films is not only about making a film which is inspired from any real which life incident or from anyone’s life but it can be also a film inspired from real life ideas and problems people face. Films like 3 Idiots, Wake Up Sid and recently launched film Dear Zindagi were appreciated a lot due to its relatable content. Think, whenever you watch a movie and find a prank which you did with your friend, you will laugh as hard as you can or may be twice hard than that, just because you were able to relate it with you. Just like laughter, every emotion comes out in its complete form when you are able to relate it with something. This makes movies more than just a source of entertainment; they become source of solutions of our problems, dilemmas and troubles. We watch then, we relate them, we apply the same thing in our lives and sometimes it works out.
Now the time has come to end the bollywood masala which was not letting good scripts and ideas of new genre to come up. Previously audience actually watch films according to actors and movies with well known actors became box office hits but as movies are moving towards reality, directors and producers have also started selecting people not because of their popularity and fan following but on the basis of the person who fits for the role. This provides talented but underrated artists to show their talents. Not just artists but also the writers and their scripts are nowadays placed where they should be and what they actually deserve. It can be easily predictable that in upcoming time bollywood movies will be even better then now if they work according to present philosophy of relatable movies.
