Bollywood is an Indian film, but is Indian film a Bollywood movie? (part 2)

Movies that speak other languages, such as Tamil, if towards focusing on good storyline but not too focused on actors, are often closer to Indian audiences, bringing their normal lives to movies. The film can be simple about a man and the problems he meets in everyday life. Tamil films have the ability to “treat” low budget because the content is not too picky and does not require a lot of skill, film production is often younger than the old faces in Bollywood movies. In terms of emotion, this branch of Tamil movies is sharper than Bollywood films, acting better, Indian cultural music so the audience in the country may not be as good, but for Indian audiences sometimes is another story.

Movie Three Idiots

Tamil films that follow the direction of the actor are not much different from Bollywood and Hollywood movies, and somewhat worse. Telugu movies also go in the same direction, somewhat like Bollywood. The main characters in the film are often built beautifully, flashily, without any place to treat, the clothes are to honor the male character. Female characters can say there is no place in Tamil or Telugu movies, partly because Indian culture is still heavy on men and women.

Promoting family values ​​and discrimination against women is a common feature of Tamil, Telugu films in particular and most Indian films in general. The old-fashioned concept of making films has greatly influenced the success of films in languages ​​other than Hindi. That is the reason why Bollywood films are well received by the foreign public because of the harmonious combination of Indian tradition and open and modern views.

 

 

 

 

 

Bollywood is an Indian film, but is Indian film a Bollywood movie? (part 1)

In addition to Hindi language films, Indian films also categorize a number of genres of films in other languages ​​such as Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada, etc.

Bollywood is one of the largest film capital in the world. People often know that Bollywood is an Indian film, but who knows what Bollywood really is? When referring to Bollywood, people often mistakenly use this word to refer to Indian movies without knowing that Bollywood is the name given to the Hindi film industry, which is made from Bombay (Mumbai today) and Hollywood.

Bollywood movies are Indian films, but Indian films are not necessarily Bollywood movies

In addition to Hindi language films, Indian films also categorize a number of genres of films in other languages ​​such as Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada, etc. depending on religion and geographic location in each region. The common point of most Indian films is that there is a scene of singing and dancing, with colorful costumes and typical dance in Indian culture, regardless of whether it is an action, emotional or comedy movie, mind reason. But each film in each language area has its own characteristics. The plot, focused focus (on content or actors), music, color and audience reception, all are very different. So it’s really hard to determine what kind of films the Indian audience is most interested in.

The reason for this type of film is that Bollywood films are the most successful genre, partly influenced by the way Hollywood’s modern films are made, blending the content and the faces of famous actors appeared in the movie. Bollywood films often have more sex elements (compared to the Indian common ground), multi-dimensional characters, humanistic messages about the rich and poor decentralization, the history of Indian culture, and prejudices. for women more deeply. You can check out some famous Bollywood movies not only for Indian audiences but also for foreign audiences like English Vinglish, Teri Meri Kahaani, Magadheera, Three Idiots , etc.
