What is the Popularity of Bollywood and Indian Hindi Movies?

From Indian film to the world’s largest production volume, the opening of Bollywood makes people scream

Before 2011, when mentioning Bollywood movies, many people still had the impression that they were shoddy and the plot was absurd. There is "banana killing", in short, the style is single and stylized, with a strong "curry flavor". As a result, there was a rhetoric called "Chinese film news bulletin, Vietnamese film airplane cannon, North Korean film crying and laughing, Indian film singing and dancing". 

However, in 2011, a "Three Fools Havoc in Bollywood" turned out to be a hit on the Internet that year, and people began to admire Indian movies. This movie still maintains a high score of 9.2 on the Douban page. More than two million people have seen it.

 Since then, a series of high-quality Bollywood productions have gradually come into our sight. Here is a picture. The introduction of Indian films in China after 2011. It is obvious that the speed has been accelerated. 

Basically, several Indian films will be introduced every year. So you may also have a feeling that the frequency of seeing Indian films in theaters has become very high in the past two years. 

The real turning point occurred in 2017, when Amir Khan's "Wrestling Daddy" starring in China won 1.3 billion box office and Douban scores of 9.1.

It was also from this that Bollywood films entered China at a faster rate. Even with the limited quota of imported films, it still maintained the rhythm of one to two films per month. In 2018 alone, 10 Indian films were introduced, second only to Hollywood in share.


What are some good Hindi movies of Bollywood?

Few good Hindi Movies from Bollywood are:

 

 Indian god movie

From the full-grooved Ahsan movie to the Indian god movie and the Bollywood real cow, in just a dozen years, Indian movies have completed a gorgeous turn in China. 

Not only in China, but also in the North American market, the influence of Indian films ranks first among imported films. Taking 2016 as an example, we can look at this picture. 

In the TOP 10 list with a box office of more than 1 million US dollars, Indian movies occupy 6 seats in one fell swoop, and the mermaid, which was the first domestic box office that year, was only seventh.

In the past, we always said that Korean movies were ahead of China, but now even the "poor boy next door" Indian movies are ahead of us, so every time someone praises Indian movies, they will also ask when Chinese movies will actually go.

 Going out, this also reminds me of the story on the Internet this year. 

Some people say that the epidemic has caused Chinese movies to go backwards for 30 years, and then someone below replied that there is such a good thing?

 

Although we always think of Bollywood when it comes to Indian movies, Bollywood is not all Indian movies. 

It is just a film base established in Mumbai, India. In India, there are four other film bases, namely Tolé. Wu, Kollywood, Molywood and Sundarwood. Because of the rich Indian language, these five film bases belong to different language factions, and among them, the Hindi language belonging to Bollywood is the most popular, so Bollywood has the largest audience, the most famous, and the box office. most.

 

Does  Bollywood of Mumbai hopes to get close to Hollywood of America?

Yes, Bollywood has delusions of grandeur. Bollywood was founded in Mumbai, India in 1995.


How did the name Bollywood came into being?

Because it was hoped that it could be on par with Hollywood in the United States, the Indians replaced the initials "H" of Hollywood with the initials "B" of Bombay, India (formerly known as Bombay). Bollywood came from this.

 Although Bollywood was only officially established in 1995, Indian cinema began as early as the end of the 19th century.

 In 1896, the Lumiere brothers, the filmmakers of the world's first film, brought their film to Mumbai for broadcasting, which aroused the interest of some Indian producers, and then Indian films began to appear scattered. 

Known as the father of Indian cinema, Barj (transliteration) founded Alfenstein Film Company after being influenced by a Western film "The Biography of Christ", which almost monopolized all short film production and production in India at that time. 

At that time, these short films were mainly documentaries, and the content mostly reflected the daily life of the Indian people, natural scenery, political events or stage plays.

 In 1913, Barji launched a "King Harish Chandra", which followed the shooting method of Western mythological feature films, telling the historical legends of India, and was warmly welcomed by the audience as soon as it was released.

 After the success of "King Harish Chandra", Mumbai capitalists who smelled the taste of capital began to invest in filming. With the backing of capital, Indian films ushered in an outbreak period, and the production and themes were becoming more abundant. 

By 1920, It has gradually formed three major production centers in Mumbai, which is mainly Hindi, Kolkata, which is mainly Bengali, and Madras, which is mainly Tami. 

The Indian movies of this period also began to gradually shift from silent to sound. Because of the natural emotion of singing and dancing, in the era of turning to sound movies, Indian directors could not help adding singing and dancing elements to the movies.

 The film was released in 1932. "Indra's Palace" was directly filled with 70 songs, which can be said to occasionally advance the plot in the cracks of singing and dancing.

 

After the Second World War, India declared its independence in 1947. Although India's chaotic political situation and complicated religious contradictions after independence caused restlessness, the relatively relaxed environment still allowed the Indian film industry to develop. 

 They worked out a set of "three-three-three" production standards. The so-called "three-three-three" means a three-hour movie, with three songs and three dances interspersed in the movie. 


So far, Indian film has entered an era of industrialization with distinctive characteristics

 They extended the relatively free film review system during the colonial period and established a relatively complete film classification system. Combining the experience of Western movies, all will innovate domestic movies, shorten the duration of the movie, and reduce the song and dance fragments in the movie. 

At this time, many Indian films went abroad and won many awards internationally. In addition to traditional song and dance films, films have also begun to become more realistic. 

The most representative of these is "Song of the Land" by Indian director Satyaji Trey. Satyaji Trey started the wave of realism in Indian films. He himself was awarded an Oscar as early as 1992. Reward for lifetime. It's just that, despite the fact that Indian movies have set off a certain upsurge, they are far from the achievements of Bollywood today. 

Today's Bollywood movies are the product of zeroing these achievements.

 

When did Indian government lifted restrictions on imported films ?

In the 1990s, when the Indian government lifted restrictions on imported films. Hollywood films flooded the market, and the Indian film market was squeezed. 

It is said that imitation is human nature. In the fierce film market competition, Indian filmmakers have also begun to imitate Hollywood in terms of shooting techniques and narrative techniques, and then integrate into India’s unique ethnic, religious and other cultures, the unique masala" "Bollywood Movie" was thus formed. 

Because Indian people do not have entertainment activities such as dancing and singing K, the only entertainment is watching movies. The cinema not only allows them to enjoy a fantastic three or four hours, but also free air-conditioning, so they demand for movies, that is, there are more tricks and a longer time, so that you can have fun.

 In order for the Indian people to enjoy their spiritual life in their hard life, the Indian government is also actively promoting the development of the film and television industry. The first thing they do is to maintain movie ticket prices. In India, movie ticket prices are generally about INR200. In the most luxurious movie theater in the capital New Delhi is about INR500 for a movie, which is simply the price of cabbage compared with the domestic movie ticket price of fifty or sixty. 

The second biggest change was that in 1999, the Indian government not only included the film industry in the officially recognized industry, but also promulgated a series of regulations to approve foreign investors to directly invest in the Indian film industry, and stipulated that the investment ratio could be 100%. 

The film industry has become an industry officially recognized by the Indian government, which means that film practitioners can legally obtain bank loans. 

Prior to this, Indian banks were not allowed to provide loans to the film industry, so at that time most of the funds of film producers came from illegal channels, such as gangs or underground banks. 

After the promulgation of these regulations, with the influx of a large amount of foreign capital, it also brought more advanced film production technologies and concepts from abroad. "Slumdog Millionaire", which has won eight Oscars in one fell swoop, is the product of a collaboration between Britain and India. 

Today, when the smell of wine is also afraid of deep alleys, good products need to be yelled constantly if they want to be recognized by the public. The same is true for the film and television industry.

 If a good film wants to quickly increase its popularity, it will leave the award. For this reason, the Indian government attaches great importance to the organization of film festivals, the most famous of which is the India International Film Festival.

 It, my country’s Shanghai International Film Festival and Japan’s Tokyo International Film Festival are the only three A-type international film festivals in Asia. 

Beginning in 2000, the Indian International Film Festival began to hold the awards ceremony overseas. This can increase the international popularity of Bollywood films and also provide channels for Indian films to enter overseas markets.

 

 What do statistics of Bollywood Movie Export Show?

Statistics show that since 2001, the export of Indian films has occupied the second place in the world. 

In 2002, Bollywood's global turnover was 1.3 billion U.S. dollars, although it is still not comparable to Hollywood’s tens of billions of dollars. 

 But compared to Hollywood's sweeping film industry pattern, it is not easy for Bollywood, which is struggling to survive, to achieve such results. 

In the five years from 2003 to 2008, Bollywood began to transform into commercial films. Take Chopra’s award-winning film "Fashion" as an example. Chinese Lenovo, world-renowned sports brand Reebok and other companies are all featured in this film. 

With the addition of invisible advertising marketing, this has made it possible to recover half of the production cost before the movie is released.

 In addition, Bollywood has also accumulated experience in film creation by actively adapting Hollywood movies. For example, movies such as "Killer" and "Unknown Death" are remakes of Hollywood. 

In the past 10 years, Bollywood movies have gone from obscurity to fame, which has also led to the triumphant development of the Indian film industry.

 

What has been the growth of Indian movies in the past few years?

From the perspective of the box office growth of Indian films in major overseas markets, the total box office in 2014 was only 1.13, and it increased to 3.12 in 2017. 

Compared with the slow progress of Chinese films in overseas markets, the development of Indian films in overseas markets is in full swing.

Even the Pakistani people, who are brothers on the border, have no resistance to encountering passionate Bollywood movies.

 

In recent years, while accustomed to lament that Korean films are powerful enough to change the country, there has also been a voice that even Indian films have risen, and when will Chinese films truly "go out".

 In the history of Chinese film development, the former Hong Kong film can compete with Bollywood. Hong Kong martial arts movies represented by Bruce Lee in the 1970s, and in the 1980s, Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung series movies that incorporated more funny styles on the basis of action, and in the 1990s, Wong Kar Wai's romance films, Stephen Chow's comedies, etc.

These high-quality films produced under a highly prosperous, commercialized and industrialized development model won the reputation of "Oriental Hollywood" for Hong Kong films at that time. 

However, after entering the 20th century, with the impact of Hollywood movies, rampant piracy and lack of talent, Hong Kong movies began to die down, while Bollywood movies began to rise quietly.

 

Significant reason for the rapid development of Bollywood movies

A very important reason for the rapid development of Bollywood movies is the highly developed and mature genre movies. 

The so-called genre movies are movies that can be produced smoothly without relying on directors and actors, and relying on standardized production processes alone. Like "Wrestle, Dad" and "Mystery Superstar" belong to this category. 

On the surface, the two films tell two unrelated stories, but the story structure is actually the same: they are both in the Indian patriarchal society. In the context, the protagonist challenges himself and the society with the encouragement of his father/friends, and finally realizes his dream and obtains recognition.

 The only difference is the filling of the characters and the content of the story. Such films greatly save the cost of film production, and at the same time improve film production efficiency.

 In the Asian film market, one of the operations we are most familiar with is to invite naval forces and get good reviews. 

Bollywood movies have become popular all over the world, partly because India has a large number of naval forces. As the largest source of immigrants, Indian people are distributed all over the world, there are not only grassroots workers, but also many industry elites. You may not believe it.

In the United States, the number of Indian executives far exceeds that of Chinese executives, such as Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Microsoft, The CEO Satya Nadella is all of Indian descent. Among the three global technology giants (Google, Apple, Microsoft) alone, two companies’ CEOs are of Indian descent. 

So some American media even said, 10 Indian CEOs are ruling the world. Therefore, they have become the most faithful tap water for Indian movies. And now desi hip-swingers are taking advantage of these educated CEOs.

After Bollywood movie star Sushant Singh Rajput was found to have committed suicide in June this year and his former bodyguard revealed that he was addicted to marijuana, an in-depth investigation by the Indian media showed that the entire Bollywood may be Severely affected by drugs. 

According to news from the Associated Press on the 27th, the Office of the Narcotics Control Bureau, India's anti-drug agency, conducted an investigation on the 26th including Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone and three Bollywood movie stars. 


Who is the highest paid actor in Bollywood?

According to reports, this is part of a drug investigation into the film industry. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) said Padukone is one of Bollywood's highest-paid superstars. 

According to the report, Padukone arrived at the Mumbai Narcotics Control Bureau office for questioning at the earliest that day. Later, Shirada Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan were also questioned. 

The report also said that the Narcotics Control Board said in a statement that it launched a Bollywood drug investigation after Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai residence in June this year. The investigation is currently underway.

 

In June of this year, Sushant Singh Rajput reportedly committed suicide among a Bangladeshi buyer. "India Today" reported on the 2nd of this month that a singer who is also a Bollywood choreographer, DJ and well-known for mixing albums said that many Bollywood movie stars are addicted to cocaine. According to him, a Bollywood party without cocaine cannot be a party. 

When the undercover reporter asked "What is Bollywood selling the most", he replied: "Cocaine." He claimed that movie stars would also take drugs in the heavily guarded lounges of bars.

 

A film director also said that drug addiction is the norm in Bollywood

 He cited some top stars and said they were seriously addicted. According to him, most Bollywood drugs are bought from suppliers in Dubai.

 According to the report, if the investigating industry insiders are credible, then drugs seem to have swept Bollywood like an epidemic.

 

In addition, three months after Rajput’s death, the Indian media broke that his actress and girlfriend Riya Shakraborti was suspected to be a core member of the drug cartel and instigated Sushante to end his life.

 After investigating, the police found that Shakraborti had helped Sushante buy drugs and mixed the drugs in coffee for her boyfriend to drink. 

What is more shocking is that Shakraborti is likely to be a core member of the drug cartel. The police are currently detaining Shakraborty on suspicion of buying and using drugs. If the investigation is correct, she will face 10 years in prison.

According to news from the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on the 26th, as part of the investigation, Narcotics Control Bureau officials stated that they are investigating WhatsApp chat messages, in which Shakraborty allegedly discussed drug problems.




Conclusion

With the blessing of national sentiments, they started an Indian movie scoring operation, which spread to the world. The huge Indian immigrants once became the most navy in IMDB. However, no matter how many soldiers there are, they still have to rely on content to speak, otherwise they will only entertain themselves.
