Bollywood movies are becoming a joke. I think the industry is taking Lara Dutta's comment too seriously. She once said, "Only two things sell in Bollywood - SRK and sex. Apparently those words are taken to heart and that's all we're getting. Bollywood comedies make me cringe - every other humorous dialogue has some sort of erotic meaning. And the Bollywood action movies are another big joke. After seeing several attempts from several different movie makers - they still haven't been able to copy the Matrix. Now that leaves us with the romantic movies - and we get the constant remakes of the cheesy running around the trees and fighting the bad guys.

Reality cinema , i guess, you have forgotten completely about.

Anurag Kashyap's movies, Madhur Bhandarkar's movies, then "A wednesday" , "aamir" , these are some of the best of bollywood, however for a conservative audience they might generally be unacceptable.

Another thing, i think your idea of bollywood movies is kinda oldies ? isn't it ? tell me yes or no, then i'll say something more regarding the issue.

I do wonder what is wrong with Bollywood, the world has come to such that I have to resort to movies like Bride Wars and Made of Honor for my romcoms and the HSM series as wholesome musicals.

i think if you are talking about the western influence only, i say then nothing is wrong with bollywood cos whole india is west obsessedAngryLOL

I LOVED Aamir. I have not seen A Wednesday, but I do wish to. Movies like Aamir, Pinjar, and all that reality cinema movies that Bollywood makes blow me away - but you have to admit that they are a rarity. They may be unacceptable in the masses - but those movies are sensational and heart wrenching.

Define "oldies" then I will answer your question. My idea of a good movie Bollywood is K3G for fun and entertainment. Aamir and Pinjar type movies for heart-wrenching drama. And Munna Bhai MBBS for comedy. That's it.

If u r talking about Masala cinema then it has always been like this from the era of 70's to 90's..what new about  todays cinema is foreign locations ...masala movies are meant for entertainment only from the beginning..What Cinema is showing today if its not 100% then i would say it is at least 75% a reflection of todays society.As far as dresses are concern u cant wear mini's or tights in Delhi 6 ( chandani chowk) but u can wear it in Selectcity and some other places of South Delhi ( its common).
On other hand meaningful cinema is completely different form commercial cinema..It was there in the past (Arth,Bazaar ) and it is still there Wednesday ,Black Friday..
