It's really sad!


It is really sad that bollywood has became money-making industry rather than quality of the movie. Instead look at Indonesian movie industry, look at movie they make fore.g raid 2 which featured at sundance.

Bollywood cannot even compete with their southern counter parts Tollywood! half of the movies they copy Hollywodd and the rest are Tollywood copies for crying out loud! They should have the ethical values of at least thanking the guys with original ideas!

Because that's different type of movie.
Perhaps if you're gonna compare it with The Raid 2: Berandal, do it with D Day. Wait. I haven't seen Bollywood on Martial Arts. That's thing to begin with.

Also responding Bollywood whether can or can't beat Hollywood, because itself can't beat Koreans of Indonesians...
Well, some of Indonesians movie is copied from Bollywood. I am speaking on behalf Indonesian. (I am Indonesian, and there's nothing I could do).
Korean is like another Asian melo dramatic, yes they have a lot of thrillers and action stuff, which is Bollywood isn't making it respectively.

You know, there's nothing different between Bollywood Industry and Indonesia. Because if you want to be appreciate, you have to go for Film Festival such Sundance. For The Raid 2 itself is a huge milestone to us (Indonesians) because it has both power. Film Festival, and people demand.

-Meh!-

Now you are talking like "Style over substance" stuff!
And Raid 2 is a Sequel to begin with while HNY is a bit Ocean's Eleven and etc etc
For Martial Arts Topic they are happy with cheap CGI, and One man beating 50 ppl as if he is hulk. while I have seen what Tony Jaa did to Indonesian Film Industy. Don't get me started with Korean movies coz there are movies like Snowpiercer or I saw the devil!

Exactly We also used to make good movies Fore.g Damini, Chak de India, Darr, Hera Pheri. Those days we used to see whole range of good movies. But these days it's all same thing😒

Will be out of topic.
Does Snowpiercer is Korean?
Well, an actor yes.
Director himself is yes... But I don't think that's Korean.
I Saw the Devil, is Korean (I think).

Responding to your "but these days all same thing",
They are in crisis, perhaps.
Now look at promising movies in 2015.
Byomkesh, Bombay Velvet, Roy. And P.K. would be great closing for this year, huh?

-Meh!-

Snowpiercer (Korean: 설국열차; hanja: 雪國列車; RR: Seolgungnyeolcha) is a 2013 South Korean science fiction arthouse action film based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette. They made it in english doesn't mean its not a korean movie, look kites half movie is in english and spanish


Only Expecting that P.K. would be great!P.K.'s teaser was also cool!

I wouldn't rank Aamir Khan as a world class actor. However he does his research work[pre-production] before commencing a movie - something that's a basic requisite for mainstream Hollywood.

Instead of mimicking the west, we should develop our own genre. That is "Masala"

Korean or Indonesian cinema didn't copy the west. It developed it own. We can, too.

But yes, I agree with you that there's not a single bit quality in masala movies, right now. The only reason I liked Bang Bang was it raised the quality of action we usually see in Bollywood. Way behind Hollywood but still it's a start.

Movies like Gangs of Wasseypur and Haider are starting to give Bollywood it's own touch. I'm sure there will come a time when others will start copying this touch!

reply

They know what people like, and they are still making so very many drama and romance movies so you can calm down.

And please stop saying bollywood copies hollywood. Hollywood is one of the biggest copiers in the world, it has copied so many movies from every country, so much so that half the people who watch them think Hollywood created them first.

The reason i watch Bollywood films is because they are so different, they can dance and sing and it doesn't feel out of place. Its not a trend that countries follow after one movie does well, it's the way they make their films and its fun. Look at all the films being made and see how many arent being made for fun, even in Bollywood these days, they all have some try hard story behind it or its a reboot or a sequel. Some people want to be entertained and that's it.

reply

HNY is such an enjoyable movie especially for die hard King Khan fans. I feel pity for those who didn't enjoy it.

reply

The trend is bad. What happened to Salman? Dabang, Wanted .... then a whole series of movies which are horrible... Last good movie in 2010. Then Shah Rukh..... Chak De India, Don, Om Shanti Om, Rab Ne Banadi Jodi.... then just pffft movies... last good movie was in 2008.


There is magic in the movies !

Well i was a SRK fan up until this movie. well enough is enough.
