It is no news that Bollywood has always managed to cater to the taste of the Indian mass audience: be it with their sinewy fight sequences, landscape romantic scenes or raunchy item numbers. But is the industry in for a change?
‘The Indian film industry is changing and movies no longer have to have a song and dance sequence to be successful, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan said recently.’
We all know that his latest release, ‘Fan’ had no songs as a part of the original film. But does this mark the beginning of a new era for the film industry? That remains to be seen.
Though we do have recent attempts at minimizing the influence and reliance on traditional ‘Bollywood’ song sequences, a popular track is a must to reach the masses for any project looking to make it big at the Box Office. The recent rejuvenation of ‘Prabhudeva’ and ‘Salman-bhai’ signature moves is testimony to the evergreen nature of dance and music in a Bollywood movie.
Bollywood is definitely experimenting, and what really clicks on screen is for the masses to decide!
