Hollywood Bollywood

Well, I have just watched the movie JUST LIKE HEAVEN and I find my fingers are already moving anticipating a new blog[:)]
This certainly is not about love or such feelings what I am going to write about is Movies..yeah, more precisely romantic movies.

After watching scores of bollywood movies and a few of Hollywood's ,I feel that movies made in india lack the kind of intensity or creativity that hollywood boasts of.
Talking about Romantic ones,Hollywood movies like Serendipity,If only,Little Manhanttan,50 First Dates,Just like Heaven,Love Actually and many more(List goes very long) take you to a very high level and you keep thinking about the characters,the theme long after the movie.This kind of effect is found missing in hindi Movies ,Even if you name the best ones like Devdas,Heer-Ranjha they stand nowhere against the names mentioned a few line above.
Hollywood movies of all type have one thing in common,they are intense,even if it's comedy it's an intense one,you get the best of the kind you are watching.In Romantic movies, they are very rich in content whether be it emotional or physical which probably our hindi directors probably never cared to provide or in other words they never went that extra step forward to defy the conventional limits.They never innovated enough .Even if you watch other type of movies like The troy,Alexander,Kingdom of Heaven,Star wars,Lord of the Rings you are left your breath gasping by the magnanimous scale of
men and materials involved.

Globalistion is the hue and cry these days and it's the time our film industry also goes global,which can only come when you respect creativity and keep Innovating.

Hello Solitary Reaper,
As I read your comments about how intense and creative our movies are here in the west, I couldn't help but think that we take our movie industry for granted. Many are good. We don't just have cars or bridges blowing up, or people being killed in every way possible. Thanks for the reminder, and your thoughts.

Yeah..u r correct,but the way you pitted the other cultural movies,it seems like you r a complete hater of such type of movies...But simply blowing out the bridge as written by u,contains so much declamation that u can't say like this way....

abt ur specific comments abt this piece,I don't hate cultural movies,infact I am gr8 fan of movies of rahul bose,N.Shah etc..but being an Indian,i do expect something to the calibre of international standard from those famed names of bollywood..

i think your complain has been listened by the bollywood directors, at least for the year2009. it had some superb directorial ventures like Dev-D, kaminey, 3 idiots.
