That's your only criteria?
Thats not the point. I recalled hindi movies as women well covered except for belly buttons
I guess it was a selective memory
Reality is quite different
XD how old are those movies?
I’ve never heard of this movie lol
It is from 2005
Still an old one XD You should watch current ones.
Lol what an idea you have about Indian movies
Yup...watch newer ones...old ones are good too, but you need a real Indian to find the amazing ones
There is a misunderstanding. I know this flopped
there is no top 100 actor/actress in it: no Khan,Kapoor or Mukerji
I have w atched more recent movies like R..Raj Kumar etc
Rockstar my favorite from 2010s
After Wake Up Sid with zero item numbers and Dabangs, not a fan of Salman. I got disllusioned
Sunny Leone starring in movies was the final nail in the coffin
surprised that she has Indian ancestry
Um...I think our tastes are pretty different lol. I like Wake Up Sid (the story was good and I like the song Ektara from that movie) ...Rockstar...umm...I only like the songs lol...movie was a lil angsty imo...Hate Sunny and Dabbang tho
I’d suggest you try watching Andhadhun, Raazi and maybe Kahaani (These are my fav ones from the top of my head). Bollywood has some good movies amongst the real old ones too
I have no issues with Wake Up Sid
My issue was the lack of item numbers: there was no dancing and fake signing lol
We just got a soundtrack
I actually like it when there’s no item songs lol. Thats probs coz I like band like Raghu Dixit Project haha...If you like non Bollywood movies, I’d recommend North 24 Kaatham too
Well I simply replaced my addition for Bollywood movies with Asian novels
Koi Aap Sa has my favorite trope Friends to Lovers
I am also envious of the business model by Balaji films
TV Shows over movies, if you want to make consistent income as a company it seems
I don’t watch any Hindi Serials exactly because of Balaji...Indian serials became cringeworthy coz of Ekta Kapoor _:(´ཀ`」 ∠):
I have no interest in watching them either but it is a perfect money making scheme for the target audience
It has made them very successful
You have one chance in movies to either flop or make it
but in serials, you can change the plot according to ratings
Basically, I am interested in creating content, video content is out of my reach, so I will have to settle for comics for now
Money making is ok, but if that’s gonna destroy plots, I’d rather have a limited cour serial...And I honestly don’t understand how Indians put up with shit like Naagin and stuff *cringe*
Frankly speaking, Thai BLs might seem campy, but they’ve got better plots than 90% of Indian serials. I don’t remember the last time I liked a Hindi serial sigh...And some flop movies do become cult classics
Yes they become cult classics after they kill the companies lol
I think there is a nice balance
There is a target audience for those serials
as long as the money is redirected to movies that I like I do not care lol
Even if they are flops, they hold an important cultural value and if there is an audience that enjoys it, despite it being say 50 years later, they should definitely be made.
Experimentation is a part of any art. Sometimes it’s a success, sometimes not. Just because it isn’t, doesn’t mean it should be abandoned. And Indian serials have lost that experimentation. Even there is a single serial that had a standout plot, it’d restore my faith.
Money isn’t everything when you’re in any art form, be it novels, movies, or even music.
You missed my point
I am saying that the serials that you do not like fund the movies.
That is just how it works
Just the way crappy popular novels fund less popular gems on my website
Money doesn't come out of thing air
It might be an art form but it is also a job
Staff have to be paid
Lol...I don’t actually read any novels on your site...I’m a strictly BL reader haha
But I don’t think serials fund movies lol
Balaji films produce a lot of movies. Koi Aap Sa is just one of many films
You underestimate the power of advertising
Haha...I dropped that one welp...can’t bear angst (spoilers lol)
So my count is still 0 lol
And Balaji is not an advertising firm?
Gotta get back to Physics...I’ve wasted a lot of time already :blobsweat:
Just try watching Andhadhun...it’s very good (even without any item numbers)
I wish you success. Dont worry about spoilers
I dont read BL
I am straight as can be
I will give it a try
I hope there is a lot of c̶l̶e̶a̶v̶a̶ge....belly buttons in the movie you recommended? *whistling*
Andhadhun is actually a good one.
