My thoughts on Bollywood movies
To be truthful, Great stories should be told in the films. The content must be strong and excellent. Bollywood viewers have drawn to content-driven films in large numbers. Storytelling, like any other industry, evolves with time. It doesn’t happen overnight. The Bollywood film business has begun to experience a shortage of ideas.
The ability to judge which screenplays will work and at what price is the most critical quality a producer should have. On a consistent basis, “we are suffocating our own industry.”
As it occurred the recently released film RADHE, starring Salman Khan, the so called “big star,” which was released in theaters over Eid, was a huge disappointment for Bollywood fans. Some films, such as Zero (SRK), Thugs of Hindustan, Tube light, Shaandar, and others, were complete and total flops that flopped at the box office and in business, but others, such as Race 3, Gold, and Talaash, were labeled Box Office Average (diplomatic lingo for flops) and returned to the creators their money.
Theatrical Rights in South India, North India, West India, East India, and Overseas, as well as Digital Rights and Satellite Rights, are how most producers get money before a film’s premiere. This is known as the Business of a Movie, and it usually results in an immediate profit for the Producer. Even if the Distributors do not recoup their losses after the film is launched in theaters, the Producer will compensate them for their losses plus an additional 10%, and they will be satisfied once more. Films where both parties have made profits are called Hits/Super hits/Blockbusters like PK, 3 Idiots, Dangal, Sultan, Dabangg, Ek Tha Tiger, Padmavat, Kabir Singh, Chennai Express etc.
From the beginning, our industry has been characterized by uncertainty. It isn’t a new concept. We are in the midst of a crisis across the board.
I feel it is a game, though a costly one. They have nothing to do with hits and misses. If you look at the population of India, they make $20 million right away. Indian families don’t care about the movie’s reality; they only want comedy or romance. A few young people may be annoyed by the film, but they don’t care.
The growing Indian economy has created a desire for high-quality entertainment. Please put a smile on our faces once more.
