Bollywood films are going places. There is no denying the fact that at the global front Indian films have established a strong foothold. And if the industry’s growing popularity is any indication, it will be not long that the best of Hollywood investors line up at our doorstep to cash in on the immense talent available here in India.
Danny Boyle, perhaps knew this phenomena well before he conceptualized his mega Oscar triumph – ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. The entire film was shot in India. Star cast included Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Dev Patel and Freida Pinto. All Indians except for the storyteller – a foreigner
Not that the film reflected the actual essence of India but it did help in putting forth at the international map our potential in terms of aspects pertinent to the success of a project. Be it skills, resources or the ability to transform even the frivolity of things into real worth. And finally at the year end, in the prestigious Academy felicitation the whole world rejoiced to ‘Jai Ho’!
Apart from Indian mores forming a background for international films, there are has been a rising trend among west filmmakers to make films based on the ethos primarily focusing on Indian cultural fabrication. The case in point is another celebrated director/producer of Hollywood Jennifer Lynch showing interest here in India while she filmed her super natural cum mythological thriller ‘Hisss’. Starring Indian bombshell Mallika Sherawat, the film won wide scale appreciation at several prestigious film festivals, all across the globe.
And not only this, there has been a surge of young filmmakers in India who have taken the baton to a respectable level. They stand at par with renowned directors, producers, Bollywood celebrities and they know exactly how to project their work and make it acknowledged at the international forum. For instance, at Cannes this year, there were scores of films selected from India under various categories. The reality struck when films got recognitions and were awarded for some exceptional performances by Indian artists.
Therefore, it can be rightly said now that Indian cinema has progressed and the demand for Indian films has increased more than ever. Bollywood heavyweights like Shah Rukh Khan, Amitatbh Bachan, AR Rahman enjoy a fan following worldwide. No doubt that their contribution has been significant in changing the face of Bollywood to an excellent destination for any cinema aficionado of the world!
