    Indian movies vs Hollywood movies - which are better?

    Looking for comparative views on films from India in comparison to those from Hollywood? Follow the fascinating ongoing discussion in this forum thread.

    We love India and therefore love Indian movies also. In fact, we love our movies so much that we have enabled few of cine celebrities to attain high constitutional offices also.

    However, some of the points of comparison of Indian movies versus Hollywood movies are as follows -
    1. Hollywood produces a great variety of different genres like war, sci-fi, action, adventure, romance, and classics etc. whereas the Indian movies have limited variety with a certain stereotyped dance scene, car chase, 'dhisum-dhisum' etc.
    2. Hollywood industry picks talent globally from countries like Far East, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe etc. whereas the Indian movies mostly depend on Indian talent.
    3. Hollywood movies are popular across the globe, be it west, east, north or south whereas the Indian movies are generally restricted to India and people of Indian origin settled abroad.

    Let us discuss. Are Indian movies better than Hollywood movies?

    I watched 665 Hollywood films and about a 200 Indian films (mostly the good ones) till date. I think that Hollywood films are better. There, a bad film is not accepted by audience or critics even if it stars most popular actors. But, that is not the case in Indian film industry. The movies popular stars are doing now a days have less content but more actor/actress elevation. Even some flop Hollywood films are better than some Indian super hit films. If we skip some part of a Hollywood film, we are sure to miss something. But for our movies, we can skip 20 minutes for songs, 20 minutes for useless/impossible/gravity defying in a 120 minutes movie etc,. Anyways, people want to watch non cliched films now a days and therefore the cliched films won't survive for long.

    Let us continue learning.

    Hollywood is an amalgamation of several countries' motion pictures; whereas Bollywood refer to only Indian Hindi movies. If we think about Hollywood, the term indicates a mixture of several language movies from several countries. However, Bollywood indicates to only Hindi movies, whereas there're 23 constitutional languages in India and other than Hindi movies also made in Assamese. Badaga, Bengali, Bhojpuri, Bihari, Chattisgarhi, Dogri, Gujarati, Haryanvi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Jharkhandi, Konkani, Kosli, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Odia, Nepali, Punjabi, Rajasthani, Tamil, Telugu, and Tulu languages in India.
    Due to this it is improper and inappropriate to compare Hollywood and Bollywood. No doubt Hollywood movies are far better as compare to Bollywood, but not so good than Indian movies. Indian movies are full of sentimental, religious, romance, action, thriller, suspense, horror, and completely heart touched.

    I think Bollywood has many overrated movies which lack content unlike Hollywood movies. In Bollywood cast overshadows story and other creative aspects many times.

    Hollywood has a comparitively larger audience than Bollywood. But, what matters here is the quality of movies that both these top brands has offered so far. Bollywood has delievered some fascinating work throughout the year which was well appreciated worldwide. On the other hand, Hollywood has had a few ups and downs during this course of time. At the end of the day, movies are meant for entertainment and both of these brands work hard to achieve great success. The final verdict is that Hollywood and Bollywood are like the two sides of a coin. Both work relative to each other and their existance is equally important!
