what is happening in bollywood?

Is Bollywood changing?.Even though the uncreative bunch of peoples are re hashing english and south indian movies.Not all directors are thinking about making the same type of love stories with beautiful songs.BLACK was a different movie.There are some more nice movie coming out.Suddenly bollywood looks very colorful and varied.

Historical movies

Shyam Benegal's Bose The forgotten Hero


Ketan Mehta's The Rising


Akbar khan's Taj Mahal



Literary Adaptations


Vidhu Vinod chopra's Parineeta is based on Sharat chandra chaterji's novel of the same name




Amol Palekhar's Paheli is based on rajasthani writer Vijaydan Detha’s folk tale "Duvidha".Wish palekhar choose someone else for the hero role :(.




others

Sudhir Mishra's Hazaaro Khwaishein Aisi a movie on pre- and post-Emergency days.check out zero's review




Mahesh Manjrekar VIRUDDH which is supposed to be on the lines of saaransh


Dibakar Banerjee's KHOSLA KA GHOSLA was well received in Cannes.


Manish Jha's Mathrubhoomi is about a Nation without women.Is getting released in 6 languages including tamil.



Comments:
definitely the hindi movies hv changed a lot, senthil!! Sometime back, I used to see the Chunkey Pandey / govinda style of movies in DD... It is a good relief now, that these type of movies are not getting good take.. This will lead to reduction in no.of craps.
 
Equally they produce alot and lot of crappy movies -
Mainly if you have agood budget and wider audience ,you can take risks - I would say that bollywood is atleast 15 years back ,considering that its market is whole of India ( +NRI) and thanks to Underworld -Good Budget too ..

Rising ,Parneeta - I have huge expectations .Bose - Has been released already .
Parneeta songs are also good ..

Normally i don't like Sharukh movies - He kills the charater and shows his star Power -
 
ram,
yeah, this will lead to the reduction of craps.But let's hope people will welcome these movies.

ramki,
yeah, but it used to be 98% craps.now look at the variety , apart from all the comedies/soft porn's/love stories.

I think the main reasons in the NRI investments coming into bollywood and the NRI market.Now every movie is properly funded/marketed and all big corporations like sahara/ Zee films are into film buisness.

Parneeta -piya bhole was very nice.Bose/hazaron khwaheshien are already out.i think rising will be released in aug and tajmahal later and the rest of the movies are stated to be released in may and june.

I too have the regret that amol choose someone else for paheli.But it is SRK's production so...
