Bollywood's CONfusion is in the AIR !

Best Blog Tips
Please don't sneeze. After reading this post, you might want to take nasal spray to clear the air a bit in a hope to breathe fresh air someday, but let me tell you its futile.

I am lucky because I get some free time in the evenings and over weekends. However ever since I moved to Middle East my movie dose has reduced significantly. It has resulted in a loss of appetite, dry thoughts keep wandering across my minds rapidly accompanied by empty sand storms and a hollow tranquility.

But ya, living in Middle East has lot of advantages, more then I could have imagined. The best one and perhaps most important one is easy access to Indian T.V channels, ya all of them, at the almost same time and pace. After a long time, I decided to create a collage, thanks to the daily dose of Indian TV channels and through them easy and almost free access to most latest of the Bollywood movies.


After creating this collage, I realized that pictures do speak 1000 words. So I can afford to keep this blog post small, like the script and plot of the above Bollywood movies. Call it a coincidence, but I came across most of the above movies and many more, which I cant recall now with same story line, that of confused lovers. These in love people are either too afraid to accept their love or have find love of their life after getting engaged to someone seemingly boring but nice at heart person. Somehow the Music of all these movies has been great, in some of the movies even the performance of the actors under given scope was also good. But as we know our Bollywood Directors and Producers are famous for making the most while the sun shines, so they decided to make the most of this new age, gen Z, confused love bird stories. The big advantage is that the Directors and Producers dont have to spend much on story, sets, editing, costumes or even on the fee and remuneration of actors. The acting by the likes of Imran Khan and Deepika Padukone is so good and repetitious that sometimes I really wish and hope that they get rid of their straight faced confusion soon and can live happily ever after.

Back in 90s our beloved Rajs and Simrans used to invite us with arms wide open to fall in Love and now days we are getting emails with open invitation to fall in the confusion. I am married and so I can afford to remain confused, what about you ? Still searching for the Nasal spray !!

By the way, dear Directors and Producers of such confused character love hate stories, we had enough of these, we got the point, we appreciate the confusion and have full sympathy with your metro-sexual, wannbe successful, untalented, protagonists. Kindly stop making such movies ! Enough of CONfusion!

    1. agree Saru. As a matter of fact this confusion became so predictable and boring now a days that it fails to confuse me anymore :)

  3. If themes are the same, hopefully story lines are different and there is a lot of teeth in the plot? Otherwise, producers and directors are underestimating today's audiences, which is a shame.

    2. Hi K. thanks for passing by. Sadly the acting, the plot, the essence of dialogues, straight face, trying to be cool while drunk kind of acting is almost identical in all these movies. The only major difference I found was in profession of lead actors !

  4. I like to mute the sound and watch movies in TV. Known pattern of stories- confused love in your example or Suraj Barjatiya kind of no-trouble-all-good kind of movies- helps. I can do my work and raise my head occasionally to see what's going on in the Tv. May sound silly; that's what I do.

  5. I think it's Imtiaz Ali style that has caught on.... three movies on your collage are his movies, only other movie that he directed "Socha na tha" also has same theam....

    1. astute observation backed by Bollywood knowledge Vishal :)..I think its pretty usual in Bollywood to use, abuse and overuse a theme for 4-5 years, till the audience starts rejecting those themes outright ! The same thing happened in 90s with NRI and Come Fall in love kind of themes...back in the late 70s till mid 80s when movies were made around the angry young man theme !! Hope the writers and directors in Bollywood start focusing on stories rather then themes and start cast !!
