Hollywood Vs. Bollywood

'Look at Matrix. Whatta movie man! Beautiful stunts' Vs. 'Then what is wrong with our MithunDa?'. Superman Returns Vs. Krrish.Clint Eastwood Vs. Rajkumar. Marylin Vs. Madhubala. These are the questions.'More and more Hollywood movies are hit in India' or 'Bollywood taking on the world?'. Rs.50 for 1.5 hours or Rs.50 for 3 hours? Qulity, stories, actors etc. What is ultimately better? Hollywood or Bollywood? What is your bet?

India has been over the years very much attracted towards America or other many foreign countries, right from our ministers film actors and others have always rushed to foreign sites and enjoyed themselves, forgetting that their country is far far better than the foreign countries like wise their movies but no! indians seems to get attracted by movies also they copy scene by scene all the hits of hollywood. KRISSH is doing good business at the boxoffice b'coz it's been said it's equivalent to Superman.

Undoubtedly Hollywood for implementing original ideas. Bollywood is more for masses and generally tends to entertain common people. If marketted properly, Bollywood films can be more pupular in backward countries and developing nations, where people cannot afford the luxuries of Hollywood films.

And our stars take pride in being compared with Hollywood celebraties. Exammple - Amitabh Bacchan is termed as 'Clint EastWood of BollyWood'. But then why isent Clint Eastwood called 'Amitabh Bacchan of Hollywood'?

The other factor that prevents Bollywood from taking the world by storm is the immaturity of authorities involved in film making and low technology usage, which seriously affects film quality and ideas. We still are unable to decide what the purpose of a film should be. A serious file is called as 'Art Film' and is termed as 'Flop'. Whereas even the most nonsensitical film can be called as HIT if it manages to generate incomes. But officially, the real expenditure and income of films never disclosed. On top of it, some criminal mindsets are also envolved in Bollywood in either finance or bussiness. We must stop it. We must view it as an industry and rules should be made to enable safety of every person involved in making the film. Do we remember that couple of years ago an accident occured on Kaizad Gustaad's new film, where a women for mcrew tem died? No body knows what happened next thanks to lethargic judicial system and ignorant media.

We also tend to avoid speaking on hte people who are stars. What happened to Salman Khan in poaching case? I bet, there are full chances of him going scott free..
If he had done this in USA, he would have been in jail right now, and the papers over there wouldent had displayed his pic with Katrina Kaif, going out of the prison, and showing as if nothing had happened. Forget that..what happened about the accident that Salman Khan caused while driving rashly? What happened about Fardeen Khan who was caught while having illegal cocaine? Or what about Amir Khan who purposely created a debt while Fanaa was being released? Or Jaya Bacchan arrogantly objecting her removal as MP?

Nope, something has to be done. It needs no astrologer to predict that Bollywood can never take over Hollywood in quality. The facts are before you.

Movie is just like good food, I like Eggplant Parmesan but Mutton Kolhapuri is irresistible.

HOllywood gives the best quality like picture, sound, actions.
So I feel hollywood is attracting more audience. If bollywood need the same audience then should improve the quality they are giving. Thought we have very good actress like Madhubala and Dev Ananad, they were old now. Tell mw the new actress having the talent like Madhubala. U will find NO ....Now a days, actors and actress are beautifull/handsome but NO TALENT...NO ACTING....
