It is said that when times are bad, patience, patience, patience and understanding should be used. At that moment, a thoughtful step takes us from darkness to light. During this, the time given to stop and think and understand, taking lessons from the mistakes made in the past, efforts are made to improve the future. But some people don’t learn from their bad times. Like what’s going on with Bollywood right now. Despite being at its worst, the people of Bollywood are not ready to take a lesson. One of the many reasons for the failure of Bollywood movies is that the Hindi film industry is still making movies with its old formula with eyes closed. He feels that, as before, the public will continue to see his films out of obligation. But the continually flopping movies have made it clear that audiences are no longer short of options.
Anurag Kashyap lashed out at Aditya Chopra after the failure of the Yash Raj Banner movies.
Movies from Yash Raj Films, a major production company in the Hindi film industry, are continually beating at the box office. These include big movie names like ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’, ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’, ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’, ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ and ‘Shamshera’. Everything is great, from the budget of these movies to the star cast, but they have failed, what is the reason behind this? In this regard, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap says that Yash Raj Films owner Aditya Chopra is making films according to his own ignorance of the outside world. They don’t even know what the audience demand is. What the public likes and dislikes. They go to do something else and become something else. As if he wanted to do ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, but became ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. He wanted to do ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, but it became ‘Shamshera’.
Making a mockery of Yash Raj’s model of filmmaking, Anurag Kashyap says: “There’s a man sitting in a cave who doesn’t know the outside world, he’s deciding how everyone should make their own movies and telling them what they should do. you’re digging your own grave. You have to give people discounts, you can’t dictate terms. That time has passed. If Aditya Chopra picks a lot of people to work with, then they need to empower themselves. They shouldn’t control, dictate, control casting. There’s no need to control anything. Sit in your office, hire good people. If you trust them and let them make your movie. Cinema here is largely controlled by people who are second generation and grew up in test rooms. No they live it.”
Anurag Kashyap may have said these things for Aditya Chopra, but if seen in the true sense, it applies to the entire Hindi film industry. At this time, the eyes are being stolen by the problem that has arisen like a Bollywood ostrich. Taking lessons, instead of working on the quality of the movies, he is focusing on different things. He believes that at this moment the Boycott Bollywood campaign is under way. People are fiercely opposed to Bollywood movies. Due to this, the movie collection is also being affected. But if a movie fails just because of the boycott, it doesn’t seem possible. Had this been the case, Kartik Aaryan’s ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ and Vivek Agnihotri’s ‘The Kashmir Files’ would also have been heavily beaten at the box office. But both movies have earned the cost many times over by delivering great performances. The reason for this is that the audience liked the content of these movies. After this there was word of mouth publicity. Because of this, a large number of people watched the film. On the other hand, ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ and ‘Raksha Bandhan’ have failed to win the hearts of the audience.
Bollywood should now stop making best formula movies altogether. The era of remakes and biopics is over. Now the public watches any movie in their native language only. For example, Aamir Khan’s ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ is a Hindi remake of the Hollywood movie ‘Forrest Gump’. Most viewers have already seen ‘Forrest Gump’. This has been discussed for a long time on social media. After this an environment was created against the film. This is the reason why this film has not achieved the expected audience. The result has been that the film has been able to earn just Rs 45 million within five days of its release. Whereas Aamir’s movies make that much money in two days. People have been eagerly awaiting Aamir’s movies. But in the changed environment, the taste of the audience has changed. Southern cinema also has a great contribution to this.
