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.
