Changing audience taste reflected in new Bollywood plots
Buoyed by the success of their much appreciated films, a new breed of directors who are experimenting with a variety of plots and subjects say that the new ideas coming out of Bollywood point towards changing taste of the Indian audience.
Recent films such as “Tere Bin Laden” and “Udaan” have brought fresh ideas and new talent to Bollywood, at a time when biggies in the industry are busy with sequels and remakes of older hit films.
“There are a lot of stories that need to be told by our film industry. Sadly, there is very less time spent on developing a good script in Hindi films,” says Subhash Kapoor,who directed the surprise hit “Phas Gaye Re Obama” last year.
“This year there is already a good number of sequels and remakes lined up so it is a very good time for people who have fresh ideas to present before the audience. New writers have enthusiasm and freshness,” says Kapoor, who spent a year researching for his script.
