    They really need to come up with movies with original stories not copied/inspired from hollywood or the south otherwise there is not originality as they are simply producing replica's of other movies but in an indian style. Copying South movies might produce Crores but like the TV reality shows which are majority copied from UK, US and other countries there is no creativity.
