In recent years, several prominent Pan-India films have bridged the gap between the North and South of Indian film Industries, and movies like “Baahubali” and “Baahubali 2,” “KGF” and “KGF 2,” along with the blockbuster film “Pushpa,” had forced Bollywood to reconsider its approach.
While South Indian cinema had been churning out remarkable films with stellar storytelling, screenplays, direction, acting, and unforgettable dialogues during the past few years, Bollywood, on the other hand, had largely focused on producing subpar movies that deteriorated the overall quality with their vulgarity, lack of a compelling narrative, and double entendre dialogues.
During the era of South Indian cinema’s resurgence, Bollywood king, Shah Rukh Khan, injected a fresh perspective with his blockbuster film “Pathaan,” which redefined Hindi cinema. Subsequently, the film “Gadar 2” by Sunny Deol proved that films with a good story, the best dialogues, and themes that resonate with the audience still hold sway.
However, it appears that most Bollywood filmmakers are not inclined to eliminate their mediocrity. This became apparent when the poster for Ranbir Kapoor’s upcoming film Animal was revealed, leading serious Bollywood fans to express their disappointment.
The real controversy began when the poster for Ranbir Kapoor’s film, featuring a kissing scene with the talented south actress Rashmika Mandanna from “Pushpa,” was released. Rashmika is a young, beautiful, and talented Indian actress with big films to her name, as she brilliantly showcased her skills in the Pan-India film “Pushpa.” However, her association with a kissing scene in “Animal” has led to an attempt by the film industry to exploit her talents for explicit scenes.
A hallmark of every major Bollywood film has been a strong and compelling narrative, exceptional acting, powerful dialogues, and outstanding songs. But in recent years, filmmakers have tarnished Bollywood’s identity with vulgarity, undermining its recognition. Now, even talented actresses like Rashmika Mandanna are being relegated to secondary roles not befitting their abilities.
This is not the first time that a South Indian actress with talent has not been given roles that do justice to her abilities in a Bollywood film. In the recent past, a similar situation arose with actresses like Ileana D’Cruz and Tamanna Bhatia.
In summary, while South Indian cinema has been delivering powerful, meaningful films, Bollywood seems to be reluctant to shed its subpar standards, as demonstrated by the treatment of talented actresses like Rashmika Mandanna. The recent controversies surrounding explicit content in Bollywood have only further tarnished its image, and it’s time for a change.
