Why does Indian film industry portray emotional ideas only?We have a big Bollywood film industry, where we come across many type of movies and the entertainment is based on drama, romance, tragedy, horror and much more. What ultimate moral of the story does every film depict? Is it always a love story or does the comedy or drama has its greater impact too?
Our movies showcase various type of characters. Sometimes they get characters from real lives, sometimes from the stories in some books or sometimes the thought is constructed by the director or writers if they get any in their mind. As per my views from childhood itself, it seems Indian cinema is based on emotions of people.
Whatever may be the scenario, starting from 'Kuch kuch hota hai' to 'Hum dil de chuke Sanam' in the late 90's and then even 'Devdas', and 'Kal ho na ho', all of them have a central character who loves a woman in his life, wants to marry her and faces lot many problems to do so. In some cases love starts from friendship then it ends, but after the boy's wife dies, he again marries the same old friend. In the other movie, the boy loved the girl but could not get her for life and so she gets married to somebody else due to family pressure. So this was again based on family stuff and emotional grounds. Another movie depicting the life of Devdas shows how much he loved 'Paro', but he too could not get her and she got married to somebody else and how he had a painful death in the remembrance of his beloved 'Paro'. In the last example movie, the boy loves the girl but he cannot marry her because he had very less time left with him and he would die soon.
There is one common thing in all of them, first is: the boy will not get the girl at any cost, does not matter how much he loves her. Also, they all depict that we Indians are so emotional and so sentimental in our thoughts. In any movie, the central thoughts lie on the love life of the main characters.
Why don't the Bollywood industries try some sort of brain storming type of movies like 'Inception' from Hollywood? Should they not make movies which showcase some sort of intelligent stuff; somewhat different from the general emotional idea? What are your views on it?
