In the past few years, Bollywood has created a paradigm shift from churning out business potboilers to producing severe films that are characterized by bold experiments in methods, themes and subject matter. This trend can also be evident from several latest and upcoming Bollywood films.
The distinction among business and parallel cinema is now blurred. Today’s Hindi films border much more on realism, and are characterised by superb editing, cinematography and path. A host of talented directors are now proving their credibility and influencing audience preferences by their revolutionary films.
Nearly all of the not too long ago launched and upcoming Bollywood films like Aamir, A Wednesday and Black & White deal with stories of middle-class people and the rise of the common man. The common man’s fight against global terrorism and social injustice has found favour with the new directors.
Another noticeable trend is the introduction of the latest technology and special effects (Drona, Krrish, Love Story-2050 etc) in all their grandeur. Animation films are also becoming quite popular, and even big production houses like Yash Raj Films are venturing into this genre.
Yet another trend that has set the cash registers ringing for producers is the remake of old classics. Some of the recent remakes to hit the screens are RGV ki Aag (a remake of Sholay) and Don (remake of Amitabh’s blockbuster of the 70s).
The trend of producing films that cater to the urban audience can also be fast catching up. Films like Life in a Metro, Page3, Company and Fashion that target a niche audience – the urban-metropolitan segment of viewers – are also turning out to be good money spinners.
Another upcoming trend perceptible in Bollywood is that of multiple films being produced every year by select production houses. In fact there is an emerging trend towards co-productions as well.
Last but not the least, the overseas uptake of latest Hindi films has gone up and quantity of overseas prints has increased for big-budget Hindi films. A large segment of the Indian population settled abroad is hooked on to Bollywood, and it is believed that the upcoming Bollywood films may even give Hollywood producers a run for their money.
