Bloggywood

Bollywood - where dreams come true, where talent, if it exists, will definitely getrevealed, where fantasies are lived out, where passion finds a way of expression...(for that matter, any 'ollywood' - B, H, K...)
in the beginning, almost every movie made had a fresh storyline which made people see it. then we had formula movies, which tried to recreate the same magic as its successful predecessor, most failed, coz people could see the same thing only so many times... the search for keeping viewers happy continued.. for some time, fresh faces were the mantra, and love stories were churned out like there was no tomorrow (maybe there wasnt).but then even love could only keep interest that long..
action, romance, mystery, sex ...a time when every idea has been thrashed out , thrashed in, and thrashed inside out... then the varied treatments began... "its the same story, but my treatment is different".... somewhere in between there was also the "for the first time in bollywood" wave, which included phirang heroes and heroines, and special effects... we also had, maybe still have movies made for the niche audience...the cross over movies...'grey' heroes and heroines, literally and otherwise..none of this making much of a difference.....every time a fresh face is launched with reasonable fanfare, there is an interest, but itisnt sustained... there are not enough viewers, except for very rare cases...
but yup, you are right, bollywood and the other woods still go on, movies are being made, we still watch them, but the standard of movies has reached rock bottom, and is still digging (that would explain the underworld involvement ;) ),the chances of watching a good movie are infinitesimally small... the consolation is that there are still some who experiment, and make movies about stuffthey believe in, and that belief many a time makes the movie a success... but they are too few to change the general phenomenon...........
Blogs- where dreams come true, where talent, if it exists, will definitely get revealed, where fantasies are lived out, where passion finds a way of expression...(rediffblogs, blogspot, blogdrive.....)
in the beginning...............
do we see bloggywood happening?
until next time, keep believing, keep blogging....
