South Cinema Influences Much Of Bollywood Movie Making

By: Sanjay Joshi

Many of the producers and directors of Bollywod are directing their attention to the south cinema and this is not a big surprise nowadays. In the past century, there was a keen difference in the making of movies in the south and that of the Bollywood. It cannot be said that there was a complete disparity, but cases of movie making in accordance with the south movies were quite sporadic. Unless a strong storyline that could appeal to the Hindi speaking population was there, few movies were made in the format of south cinema.

Changing Scenario of Bollywood and South Cinema Merger:

But the present scenario is replete with examples of influence of movies from the southern film industry on that of the Bollywood. The south movie news is full of reports which say that there are remakes made and the actors and directors are also being swapped. The concept has become so much popular that some of the leading stars in Bollywood are keen on getting the south directors on board of their movie production.

And the best part of such a transition is that these films are becoming super hits in the whole of India. The case of Ghajini which starred Aamir Khan is a strong example. This movie was originally made in tamil and it was a semi hit on release in the southern states. But the remade version with Aamir Khan went on to become the greatest hit of the year of its release in Bollywood. Wanted was a movie starring heartthrob hunk Salman Khan, which was directed by the dancing superstar of Tollywood, Prabhu Deva, which became a hit in Bollywood.

Not only these, but there are plenty of such examples where the cinemas which made a chunk of south movie news are under discussion to be remade in Hindi with stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Salman Khan, and others. It might be the presence of such heavyweights from Bollywood which is making the news, but still, the concept of such stars and the interest they are showing for such movies is something that cannot be dismissed.

Past History:

The heroes of yesteryears had a strong influence on the masses of the south and these actors were revered as demigods. Stars like Rajnikanth, Prabhu Deva, Nagarjuna, etc have made their presence felt in some of the movies in the Hindi film industry. But only a few of the Bollywood stars went south bound. But, the renewed interest of these stars in the south cinema is perhaps the start of a new era in both Tollywood and Bollywood.

Not only are the stars spreading their interests, but the directors and producers are constantly watching the development in both the industry and are trying to grab every possible and potential opportunity to make bilingual films and remakes. Even the south cinema news is followed by people from other parts of the country with curiosity and enthusiasm. The knowledge of various stars and female protagonists of south Indian cinema is found with people all over the country. On a visit to the multiplexes, missing the flavour of the south cinema is a rarity as both Bollywood and Tollywood are trying their best to widen their viewers and rake in the Moolah by every possible means.
