Its Friday!!! And its a release!! Cinemas are all jam packed...popcorn and nachos. Great going!! We all are obsessed with the Hindi Film Industry and why not??!! Its glamorous. You can be an actor and the entire world will know you. But is Bollywood losing its tag of quality films like it used to deliver in the past. 
With complete fairness,the craziness of being in 100 crc club has driven producers to make the craziest films with absolutely no concept. Actors don't just pick films they want to be in,they pick films they think they can drag into this club and make the rich producers richer. 

But what about stories?? What about emotions that define a movie? Very rarely do we get a release that defines good acting+excellent plot+feel good ending. The last I had seen was The Lunchbox. And it seems, even if you have good actors who have been in theatres for years fail to get attention because of the new entrants who have looks and bodies to die for.

I think that too many movies are made with the expat Indian in mind, too many movies now portray values that are aginst morality, too many movies that a copied from Holywood,. These days movies lack the deep moral values that were expoused in older movies. In the past movies taught the audience and raised their consciences about topical issues, today too much nach gana, nangi patungi actresses and actors with little acting skill and only eye candy.

well considering our 1.2 billion population and add neighbours' population to that, we have big sections of each type. Some who watch movies for pure entertainment, some for quality and yet others who could not care less.
All movie industries are driven by this fact and all produce a bunch of crap along with some master pieces.
Don't you agree?

nw a days what i found in indian movies..nothing..only exposd gals..no innovative roles for female lead..repeatative mardhad,only telgu remakes..nothing seems original..even music too..felt like only lyrics changd bt music is old..rather than watching bollywd movies..i prefer tamil ,bengali or marathi movies..latest hits of marathi lyk duniyadari and timepass and balakpal ak are the best and very innovative..bw movies are lacking in new concepts and innovation..actors also are nt so much doing their best. Somewhere i feel lyke bw .newcomers are nt that gd..tv actors are much better than them..

So true. I don't understand why there is so much hype around Bollywood movies. Since a decade or so no movie is having a great impact on me. There are few movies but they too arent veryy great! 
Only thing which directors see these days is how to make the item song of their movie more popular, how to promote etc. Quality is lacking somewhere Confused

I prefer HW or animated movies ( yea they are fun to watch Tongue) than BW movies these days.

Absolutely. Bollywood produces all kinds of movies. Some like the solid ones with solid scripts and actors. Some like the entertainment-driven flicks. Sometimes, I don't mind watching a Welcome or a Golmaal either. But yes, this 100 crore madness is increasing day by day. If that is the only purpose of making a , then there's something wrong.
 
That being said, Bollywood produces some pretty cool movies too. Lunchbox was fantastic. From the movies released in 2013, I personally loved Jolly LLB and Madras Cafe. Kai Po Che was good too.
 
There is something wrong with the award shows, though. Producing an entertainment-driven movie is something. Celebrating mediocrity is another thing altogether. And when I see utterly, utterly crappy movies like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani being lauded at award shows, my heart sinks.
