U Turn

Bollywood is  happily entering into the den of remakes and biopics. While the original films are available for the audiences to watch and they know the entire story already, such films bank on the celebrity status. Even songs are also being remade these days, which brings us to only one question,  is Bollywood losing originality?

 Hindi film Industry is heavily dependent on remakes, technology and western influences.

Bollywood used to make classics once upon a time. There was the golden era of 1950s when movies like  Pyaasa, Mother India,  and Kaagaz Ke Phool were the pride of the film  industry. But those were the glory days.
