Bollywood has certainly lost its charm and even more so in the case of its low standard of originality. Film makers these days seem to be in the rat race to make money and in doing so they are producing movies with no head or tail. And before you jump to bite my head off, of course, there are a few exceptions.
But the majority movies that seem to have crossed the 100 crores are just excuses called movies. Or rather they are just mass entertainers that make no sense whatsoever and are related to nothing sensible in life. Anyway, here are the reasons why I simply hate Bollywood!
Let’s get to the crux of the problem here. Bollywood plots are the sole reason why they make crappy movies. The boy meets girl #insert song, boy and girl fall in love #insert song. The hero aka the boy is poor and the girl’s family disapproves of the union, #insert sad song.
The boy gets into a huge fight with the uncle, past lover, future lover, father, cousins etc etc of the girl ( insert fake punching sounds), the parents finally give in to the union, #insert over acting and huge droplets of tears flowing from the parents. The couple finally gets married, #insert marriage song, THE END. Now, what exactly we got to see in maximum movies.
Not only is the plot that sucks usually, it is also the charaterisation, treatment of the plot -all are way too over the top. And have no connect whatsoever to the audience. It’s like a three hour long torture in the name of movie with people trying too hard.
Next excessive use of item songs make me hate Bollywood even more, not only are they demeaning but they all run down women and objectify them. Most of these songs play no role in the ‘so called development of the story’ and are just cheap excuses to cater to the baser needs of the front row audience.
From songs we move to the lyrics, the lyrics of some of the chart busters go like ‘mera pyaar,pyaar, pyaar, hukka bar’!! Or another jem like ‘aachi baat kar li bahut, abh karuga tere saath gaandi baat’. With poetic masterpieces like this why would anyone want to miss a movie!!
More than 75% of the actors and actresses in Bollywood have no idea why they in the profession, it’s like anyone and I mean anyone can get up one day and declare that they can act and join the Bollywood bandwagon. Their acting ability is limited to over the top expressions coupled with pelvic thrusts. All this and much more put me in position but to HATE Bollywood!!
