Re: Anybody into BOLLYWOOD movies?

Oh yes, the NRI audience is a big motivating factor. About Karan Johar, i seriously think that the guy just cant( not wont) make a film for indian audiences, i am waiting for him to prove me wrong.

As for cashing in on the global audience, ours films earn a fraction compared to most hollywood films even we have a long way to go...

Yes, i enjoy my bit of fluff too, but i kind of like to give good, earnest and intelligent films a try too. No wonder we are guffawed at. We dont give serious minded films a chance here.

Films like Gangajal, Ab thak Chappan, Black Friday are basically ignored. Recently directors like Anurag Kashyap have been awared for their work.

''O eco-friendly, Nature ke rakshak, Main bhi hoon nature!. Rivaazon se, Samaajhon se, kyon, Tu kaate mujhe, Kyun baante mujhse iss tarah. Kyun sach ka sabak sikhaaye, Jab sach sunn bhi na paaye. Sach koi bole toh tu, niyam kanoon bataaye. Tera darr, tera pyaar, teri waah, tu hi rakh!!! ''~~~ Irshad Kamil
