Congress and Bollywood appear to be in the identical trajectory. Each don’t have any new narrative or content material that pulls the general public. In at this time’s occasions the general public has skilled Pushpa, RRR, KGF, Trance, Ayyappanum Koshiyum, Vikram, Kartikeya 2 and so forth. If the reply to those from Bollywood are Shamshera, Laal Singh Chaddha, Rakshabandhan, Samrat Prithviraj, Jugg Jugg Jeeyo, Bhool Bulaiya 2, Brahmastra and the likes, will probably be very arduous for them to resist the competitors from the South. I’m not contemplating the south remakes that Bollywood has been shelling out. Vikram Vedha which had R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi play the lead roles in Tamil, is certainly not going to woo the Hindi viewers as they need to’ve already seen the Tamil movie in OTT by now.
I’m strictly wanting on the Bollywood unique creations. A handfuls like Gangubai Kathiawadi and Kashmir Recordsdata are a saving grace though I might not embody Vivek Agnihotri as part of Bollywood as this nice trade by no means noticed him as one in all his personal.
We’re seeing an identical narrative paralysis in Congress too. Folks appear to be so bored of their similar ghisa-pita rant on garibi, berozgari and secularism and so forth. What distinctive options are they providing even of their ruling states to counter Modi’s continuous inventive schemes?
PM Modi appears to be creating and using the rising nationalist tide amongst Indians. Har Ghar Tiranga, Kartavya path, Subhash Chandra Bose’s statue in India Gate, Kashi Vishwanath Hall, and the listing goes on. Congress has given a sequence of flops like Bollywood and Modi has given a sequence of hits just like the South motion pictures that has shifted the loyalties of the general public.
Hindus at this time are saying sufficient is sufficient. They’re miffed with Congress’s minority appeasement for round 50 years within the title of secularism. They’re offended with Bollywood additionally for related causes. They’ve realized over time that numerous Hindi motion pictures have proven Hindu clergymen as villains and have insulted Hindu gods within the title of creativity. Hindus have seen that the Bollywood motion pictures for essentially the most half have been very cautious in taking the identical liberties with different minority religions and appeared to take Hindus with no consideration. Earlier, the Hindus had loved the identical motion pictures and made huge stars out of these heroes however they reached a tipping level now and they’re no extra amused by such selective creativity of Bollywood. Equally, of their minds at this time, Congress can also be a celebration that had taken the Hindus with no consideration and have been all the time focusing in appeasing the minority communities purely for his or her votes. Modi just like the South Indian motion pictures apart from the present Tamil film trade gave them the respect that they have been craving for.
Parivarvaad is haunting each Congress and Bollywood at this time. Congress is being run completely by a household at this time. Even in Bollywood some key households are ruling over Bollywood. Wherever there’s a household(s) management and new individuals exterior the household(s) should not welcomed, the standard of the establishment finally declines. The aam aadmi, who’s searching for extra of Bharatiya taste within the tales, doesn’t relate to the West-influenced concepts of each Congress and Bollywood. The subsequent couple of years will determine the destiny of each these once-upon-a-time widespread entities. Though each appear to be in a denial mode, allow us to see how Congress and Bollywood reply to this “rework or perish” part.
