Year 2022 is a year of “Epic” Disasters , Except the Paradise ‘Kashmir’ ruling with ‘South‘ &’Punjabi Industry !
What’s going wrong in ‘Bollywood’ ? The makers choose Stars over Content, The so called “Proposals” , on Who’s Who – The reason it have been a year of giving major Epic Disasters in History of Indian Cinema.
Year 2022 started with KASHMIR FILES which is the only Blockbuster with Housefull shows in theaters , It ruled cinemas because of its true story , The ‘Content’ which everyone wanted to know.
Kashmir Files is true story of how Kashimiri Pandits were forced to leave their homes , The Terror which people from across Borders humiliated with Pak Currency , Pak Flags.
Kashmir Files , Directed by Vivek Agnihotri featuring Anupam Kher, Puneet Issar , Mithun Chakraborty in lead roles reveals the true but sad phase of what happened in Jan 1990.
This is great example of choosing Content over Stars and Box office ruled.
Another only film which became a surprise Hit with ruling cinemas was Bhool Bhaliya 2
Now let us get back to Stars of Content , Biggest ever Proposal made was SHAMSHERA which was very rich in Star value , but a poor Content made it EPIC DISASTER NO 1.
Coming to another film Rich in Star was a remake of 1994 film LAL SINGH CHADDHA. The movie flopped badly at Box office , coz it lacked in Direction speaking wrong punjabi through out the film. This made the film as EPIC DISASTER NO 2.
Also another film which was ruled heavily in media because the unit gave some media – A trip to Hyderabad Trashed badly at Box office coz its Poor content getting label of EPIC DISASTER NO 3. The film was Radhe Shyam . Its shows were cancelled even in Hyderabad and Kashmir files got its shows.
Another one to rule in this category is Prithviraj Chauhan , which was a expensive film with very rich in “STAR” , Locations , but Poor in Content made it EPIC DISASTER NO 4
Jug Jug Jiyo – The movie which was rich in Star value over a poor dragging content made it EPIC DISASTER N 5.
Unchai was yet another drawback which didn’t worked at Box office, inspite being a powerful story.
Also one of the film BRAHMASTRA which was very Rich In its so called STAR value , but failed miserably at Box office due to its poor content.
Well the years started with series of Flops such as Jhund, Badhai Do , Valmai, Gangubai, Batman , Bachchan Pandey , Attack, Jersay, Runway 34, Heropanti 2, Jayeshbhai Jordar, Dhakad, Janhit mein jaari , Charlie, Khuda Hafiz, Rakshabandhan, Ek villian returns, Dobaara , Liger, Vikram Vedha , Godfather were totally Rich in its Star value but very poor in Content . Goodbye was a total Goodbye at Box office. Code name Tiranga, DoctorJi , Black adam , Ram Setu , Phone bhoot, Bhediya , Action hero Thank God failed miserably at Box office.
CHUP was a surprise package which brought a different message within.
Credits goes to South Indian Cinema for saving ‘Cinema’ with “Content’ films unlike RRR, KGF2, Kartikaya 2. Major and Vikram added a bit of flavors
Also Punjabi Cinema ruled Box office with Superhits Yaar mera titliyan warga , Honeymoon and much more. Reason is Punjabi Industry makes clean film – A film which can be seen with whole family
OTT s proved major failure with some heavy ‘Star’ valued projects. Only films like Forensic and Panchayat were success . Rest I barely know if any good film
