This competence is clearly visible from management to technical. You can feel this evolution from the first movie in the Harry Potter franchise to the end. But what has been the condition of our film industry during this time, let’s understand.
In our film industry that believes in making movies based on formulas, that is, Bollywood, the artist is the hero, while in Hollywood movies, the story is the hero. Hollywood history turns an artist into a hero, while in Bollywood history is written by looking at the hero. Filmmakers select actors before making a movie. The hero and the heroine decide first. After that a story is prepared that fits them. The screenwriter also writes the story based on the formula. In this one, a happy ending is achieved by adding romance, music, comedy, tragedy, and action as needed. Very few manufacturers can risk making ready-to-use films, because they know the result. The Indian public only believes in watching the movies of their favorite Bollywood star.
A decade ago it was even worse. At that time, filmmakers used to make only star-centric movies. The public also liked to see the movies of their stars. Like the one who likes Shahrukh Khan, he only watches his movies, those like Salman Khan watch his movies. If there are Shahrukh, Salman, Aamir, Hrithik, Ajay Devgan, or Amitabh Bachchan in the movie, then the movie is a hit. This is why the entire plan of the movie was built around these stars. However, in later times the audience began to deny it. Especially after the entry of the digital age, when the OTT era arrived, the king of content began to become. Based on the stories, the actors began to become heroes. Otherwise, artists like Pankaj Tripathi, Manoj Bajpayee, Ashutosh Rana and Sushmita Sen would have been in the background as before.
The movie director plays the most important role in making a great movie. Before SS Rajamouli, no director had ever thought of making a movie like ‘Bahubali’. This film has been a radical change in film culture from Bollywood to Kollywood. Rajamouli is the producer of the film, who gave the concept of Pan India film for the first time. It has taught Bollywood to make great movies. Creating a great set like Sanjay Leela Bhansali doesn’t bring greatness to movies, so the movie has to fit on many scales, from story to direction. There has been a great change in the outlook for the film industry in the last five years. As a result of this, films like RRR, Prithviraj and Brahmastra are being produced, which differ from story to story.
The use of technology in movies also plays an important role. Due to the technological advances related to films, nowadays making and showing films has become easy. The type of camera used during the production of the film or the use of VFX visual effects makes the film excellent. Similarly, editing tools are also very important for the movie. The first Bollywood movies used to be very weak on all these levels, but the movies are being produced with high level technology. Hollywood technicians are also called in if necessary. Action directors are hired in Hollywood for action movies. In general, Bollywood has grown rapidly over the past 20 years. Hollywood movies are now being made in Bollywood as well. But there is still work to be done on this. Because Hollywood has come a long way. Indian filmmakers will have to step up to replace him.
