The Bollywood VS South debate has been getting attention-grabbing as time passes by. With the success of the Hindi variations of South movies like Pushpa, RRR, and KGF: Chapter 2, one factor is fairly clear: the viewers is simply in search of some entertaining content material.
It’s not simply the success of the above-mentioned industrial potboilers, it’s additionally concerning the failures of Bollywood’s makes an attempt on the identical with movies like Radhe, Bachchhan Paandey and Heropanti 2.
Since the pandemic started, it has taken a complete of twenty-two movies from Bollywood to succeed in the determine of 1060 crore* (few of the movies are nonetheless working), whereas it took simply 3 South movies’ Hindi variations to breach the 770 crore* mark. This signifies the sheer domination of South Hindi movies and it’s additionally asking a query from Bollywood: “Aayega na? Darrega toh nahi?”
But, Bollywood, absolutely has an important line-up from hereon and a few of these movies may actually hit the information out of the park. The solely query is, will all of them do good or a few of them would face the wrath of this #BoycottBollywood pattern?
Films like Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj, Ram Setu, Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan, Dunki, Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone’s Fighter, Salman Khan’s Tiger 3, Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra, Animal, Shamshera, it’s a basic ‘kid in a candy shop’ state of affairs for Bollywood followers. But, the query is, does the child (learn: followers) need all of these candies? Or is he now attracted in the direction of making an attempt new stuff as effectively?
When we are saying a ‘post-pandemic’ part, that additionally consists of 2 completely different variants. One through which we noticed movies like Roohi, and Bell Bottom making an attempt to open up issues a bit and failing. Then we noticed giants like 83, Bachchhan Paandey & Jersey failing when issues had been already up and working. The main earners within the Bollywood camp have been The Kashmir Files, Sooryavanshi & Gangubai Kathiawadi. If you take away these 3 footage from the image (pun, very a lot supposed) you’ll get simply 484 crore from 19 Bollywood movies.
To all of the ‘Pickachus’, this, in fact, isn’t a comparability with the 2 industries however solely a sign of how issues may change if there’s good content material out there even from throughout industries. Also keep in mind how Spider-Man: No Way Home & now Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness additionally put a number of strain on Bollywood movies garnering an enormous chunk of share. What are your ideas on the identical, share them within the feedback part beneath.
