As time changed, film production also changed. Hindi filmmakers began repeating stories from Hollywood movies, but when they realized that it wasn’t that easy to copy them, they turned to southern movies. Today, 25 films from the south form the basis of Hindi films. These films have recently been released, are about to be released, or are in the early stages of production. What is the reason why now, instead of making movies about original stories, Bollywood has relied on remake movies? Is there a famine of original stories in Hindi movies now? A look…
Bollywood has always been inspired by Hollywood. Aamir Khan’s film Lal Singh Chaddha is the subject of much discussion these days. The movie is a remake of the Hollywood movie Forrest Gump. Recently, at Lal Singh Chaddha’s press conference, Aamir Khan said that it took him many years to get the rights to this film. Although the trailer for this film has not liked much.

According to film critic Bhavna Sharma, today’s producers are just looking for a good story. This is why whenever they get a good story, they are willing to make a movie about it. One thing is definitely wrong: people today don’t want to work hard on good, true stories, but instead run after those movies that are already hits. The actors or directors do not want to take any kind of risk. This is why southern movies or Hollywood movies are their remakes right away.
According to film actress Raveena Tandon, southern films are associated with Indian culture and tradition. This is the reason why the truth is seen in her movies. Nowadays, Bollywood producers don’t want to work hard. If we give opportunities to new people and work hard on good stories, we can also make good movies and then we won’t have to look to the South or Hollywood movies to make good movies.
