Can bollywood ever beat hollywood in terms of visual effects?

Will Bollywood movies ever be able to match up with the stunning visual effects of Hollywood? Special effects create magic! There are tons of Hollywood movies that are immortal in terms of special effects but there are a few Bollywood movies that came up with special effects but they are not as good as hollywood movies. Why VFX technologies of India are still in initial phase?

Yes, Bollywood started with this Technic and we can see some visual effects in Bollywood movies like RAone etc. It is the initial stage but still Bollywood is growing with visual Technic. There are high demand of such professional in Hindi film industry. New professionals in this field will sure do some technical work and we can see this in upcoming Bollywood films. It takes time because their is deficiency of such professional but India is improving in technological field.

I think Hollywood teaches us a lot and we should not compete with them or should not started dreaming of beating them. Technologically they are quite ahead and giving us good inspiration. Generally we don't make movies of that kind and if we make we all know that audience very hard to take that. We like dancing behind trees, jumping from trains, running after a villain but we certainly don't believe in Matrix or Avatar kind of movies. So I think when we are not in competition mode what is the need of raising this question for beating them. They always motivate us to make movies like Ra.One but we are certainly not ready to make all the movies of that kind. So there is no competition with them and our mind set is such that when a man in flying in skies he must speak in English or else he will fall.

I think in the recent days, some movies made in bollywood and also in the south does matches to the technical excellence of Hollywood and most the people have appreciated the visual effects.
Lets come closer and make our life more wiser.

Hollywood have very experts in VFX do you know something the Visual effects supervisor will always there in the shooting spot because lighting and shadow maintenance is important in VFX Hollywod know this this very well but in bollywood directors always considering about hero and heroin ,dance thats why bollywood can't beat hollywood .

As per my understanding in the coming years it is not possible for Indian filmmakers to beat Hollywood in terms of special effects. However it is also a fact that we have made great progress in recent past with movies like Don2 and Ra.one as long as the subject of special effects is concerned. There are lots of good technicians are coming up in India who are possessing fairly good experience in creating special effects for a movie. The market of scientific and technical movies is creeping up like anything and this is the fact which motivates Indian filmmakers. They are not hesitant to borrow the technique from Hollywood to make their film special effects rich. I think this increasing liking of Indian viewers will help Indian special effects market. But 100% dependency on Indian special effects experts is not possible in near future.

Yes I do agree tat bollywood in terms of technology and 2heir effects is way more behind then Hollywood. Hollywood have set a very different dimension when it comes to visual; hope to see it in India soon.

Yes it is good topic to discuss. The Indian cinemas are not yet developed. The technologies in our country is not good as the foreign. Even the ordinary hollywood films is good at visuals. But bollywood with the high budget can't reach the level of the hollywood visual effects. Though Indians are good in the computer technologies, it is not good in India. I think this is because of the lack of facilities which are necessary for the visual effects of the movies. We have take efforts to improve the technology in our country.

Yes, It can be done. Because many of our directors are now a days taking help from supporting staff from foreign. And yes they are doing a really good job. You can see the special effects in many movies of bollywood now a days.

I don't think that we can surpass the visual effects of that of the Hollywood movies. We have been learning and copying lots of things from Hollywood and I think this would continue in the future too. The Bollywood has been doing well but it can not compare itself with that of the Hollywood which is the master and leader in utilizing the talent.

For your thread, I will just reply as "WHY NOT?"
Yes, actually we should not say it as Hollywood has tons of movies with special effects, but Bollywood has just a few ones. Instead, we can say that our Bollywood have also started now making movies where special effects are brilliantly used.
The best example that comes into our mind is none other than 'RA.One' movie.
There are a few other movies, one more is 'Ek Tha Tiger' too(if I am not wrong) where special effects have been used.
The reason due to which we do not have much of movies with special effects because our Bollywood's most of the movies are either comedy based or that emotional or family drama where either two brother use to fall in love with the same girl or have some matter of their property etc, it may look odd if they will do fights with special effects like a brother is jumping 50 feet high with numerous flips just to give a kick or punch on his elder brother's face. It feels so funny by just imagining it ones.
The other reason that we are having less number of such films is because of less numbers producers. Though there is a lengthy list of producers/financers etc but there are only a few ones who really has the courage to put that much big amount of money into risks by making movies with special effects.
We can say, that Bollywood has now made a beginning into this matter, we can just hope top watch more movies like 'RA.One' and more, so that not in present but we will be able to meet steps with the Hollywood in the matter to special effects.
Well, if we say about 'competetion', then really, 'We are no less than Hollywood' or else in the matter of quality and storyline of movies. Even, in my personal view, I think the stories of movie we find in our Bollywood and Indian movies, is hardly found in Hollywood or elsewhere in the world at all. So we should just hope that Bollywood will soon start making more and more movies with special effects, and till then we have much more stuff in Bollywood to feel proud of that.

bollywood is improving day by day and the day is not far when bollywood will match the visual effects of hoolywood.but overtaking it in the field of movies is not so easy task.we might have to wait for decades for it.

I don't think that Bollywood can ever beat Hollywood in terms of visual effects or it is next to impossible to beat Hollywood because they spent a lot of money in their single movie and they use the advance technology for such effects.they spent lot of time to prepare the content of a movie and that's why their movies also have good concepts and ideas than Bollywood movies.They use advance technology to insert some visual effects which alone cost much that will cross the budget of Bollywood movie.
so it is really impossible to beat Hollywood movies but it can be possible after a decade.

In India, the emphasis was never given on special effects. The film's producer and director's were more eager to put an item song, than to enhance the quality of the movie by adding special effects.
We have people in India, who are great in adding special effects, but the need for them is less, so they migrate to healthier pastures like Hollywood, where they get value for money.
But, in recent times movies like Ra.One, Robot and Krissh have tried to and successfully did raise the standard of special effects in our films. So, the future is bright as long as the directors do some creative thinking instead of commercial thinking.

I think it is impossible for bollywood to beat hollywood in terms of visual effects. Hollywood film makers spend a lot of money for their single movie. The use best products to show each and every sequence like real one. They spend $200 million for their normal movie so that every one enjoy the movie as if he is living the movie. Moreover the foreign people go to watch movies in multiplexes and theaters. But in bollywood producers do not have so much of money that they could make a high visual effect movie. One another loss of bollywood is the piracy of movies. Due to piracy many people download the newly released movie and watch them in home. In this way Indian movies does not earn as much money as hollywood movies earn.

its a long way to go right now we are far behind them in many aspects
hollywood: at the world's end - 300 million dollars
bollywood: ra one - 36 million
hollywood: avatar - 2.7 billion dollars
bollywood: ra one - 50 million
that tell us that in that much we cant afford such high budget visual effects.and making high budget movie is also a risk in india because there are very less audience because of piracy problems in india.

Well, its not impossible.
Hollywood has a wider audience and finance which obviously enables them to make movies with better effects.
I think with the limited budget, we have seen movies with special effects on par with Hollywood if not better.
As pointed out in the previous posts, RaOne had good special effects. Bollywood is also coming up with its first stereoscopic 3D movie called Delhi Safari. The effects are of international standards.
It would be unfair to overlook the small but significant achievements that have been made by Bollywood in the past considering the resources that we have.

No way!! It's not like Bollywood can never beat Hollywood in terms of visual effects, it may improve in future. But as for Ra-One, the animation and effects were worst. I didn't expect this from Ra-One. Hollywood will always remain the best in terms of visual effects. Their technology is incredible! May be as per their budget, they could not do their best or whatever the reason may be. I just want to tell that Bollywood has to work 10 times harder to reach to the Hollywood level. We have a long way to go! Hope for the best in future Bollywood movies.

I think our Bollywood movies can not left behind the Hollywood movies in future and at present too. Because the Hollywood movies used the most of visual effects to provide us imaginary word, but in our Bollywood movies less visual effects are used. There are also number of fields in which our Bollywood can not beat Hollywood, the various parts are the story of movie, the action used in the movies and the budget used by the Hollywood movies. I like Bollywood movies very much, but the Hollywood movies are best in my opinion as compare to the Bollywood movies.
