Moreover, the theme for this week is supposed to be "folk dance".
Well, I'm sorry but there is definitely nothing "folk"  about the performance they are doing. Tollywood is not a form of folk dance.Confused
 
Correction. Tollywood is the Bengali film industry,LOL
 
Yeah, i dont watch JDJ regularly but i did see the episode last week. A little fun is acceptable but overdoing it should be a strict no-no.
Oops, really? Hehe.  See that just proves how confused we Indians are about our cultures.
But you do agree, from whatever we've seen of her performaance in the promos and her costume that it's NOT "folk", per se.
It's annoying that while others are working so hard to dig up cultural dances from the corners of our country, they choose to dance on something that's so cliched. Disappointing.Ouch

Hey, but if you check the latest JDJ Tellybuzz article it says, and I quote,
"Ragini Khanna, who has been giving average performances so far got her first 30 this week; her folk on a Tollywood number gave her the Best Performer of the Day Award"
ConfusedI'm confused. You sure it's the Bengali film industry?

Yeah........
 
Well,I was just being silent reader out here........
Could not resist myself commenting to this topic........
Seriously yaar,they do create some "False Impression" about South-Indian costumes & makeup.........
 
Dont they  know,its "Tamil Film Industry" or "Kollywood" which is famous than Bollywood........
They do produce such a lovely movies.........their dress & music sense is much more modernised than Bolly's................
If thye think we south-Indian just have this kind of hair-styles & make-ups(as shown in the show),then they have to watch.......films like
 
"Enthiran","Shivaji","Don"(not the bollyoowd one,its  Tamils's Ajit has done it),"Boys"......the technologies,make-ups,locations,Dance,Music & the creativity hidden in that.............
Then definitely they will know what we South-Indians are really like.......
One "Folk & Mirchi Dance" wont give you the picture of "South-India".......WE South - Indians have many much more descent & adventurous Dance-Forms as well.................Which are dignified & as well as entertaining....Why dont these people try those .They just stick to one "Tapori Dance" & say South-Indian dances are like that......Thats really foolish............Confused
 
I really hope seeing just one "Dance " ,people wont decide the Style & Living of we South-Indians.......................

AS per as I know,"Tollywood" is "Telugu Film Industry"
 
"Kollywood" is for Tamil.........
 
"Sandlewood" for Kannada...........
 
"Bollywood" is for whole "Indian Film Industry".................Smile

Actually krystal_watz and I are both correct. The Wikipedia gives the following definition of the word "Tollywood".

Tollywood may refer to either of the following two Indian film industries:

  • Cinema of Andhra Pradesh, the Telugu language film industry based in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India.
  • Cinema of West Bengal, Bengali-language film industry based in Tollygunge, a neighborhood of the city of Kolkata in the state of West Bengal, India

There you go. Confusion cleared.Big smile

Well,AS I know ,"Tollywood" is for Telugu Film Industry.........

Tollygunge which you have mentioned above is just a city & it is nothing related to "Film Industry" dear....................Big smile

Actually I always thought Tollywood to mean Telugu Film Industry. Which is why I said Ragini and her partner are doing Tollywood (or so they say). But krystal_watz said that it means Bengali Film Industry so I thought I'd been wrong all this while.Embarrassed
So I googled Tollywood and came up with this on Wikipedia. That's all I know.
So I'm back to square one. Tollywood IS Telugu Film Industry.Tongue
Phew!LOL
