As rightly said by Shahrukh Khan, once, that the saleability of the Indian films ride high only on account of the fact of it being moved away from reality. Although to a great extent it’s true yet contemporary Indian cinema is now slowly moving towards depicting the real picture of urban India .Be it Anurag Basu’s “Life in a Metro” or Madhur Bhandarkar’s “Traffic signal”, the young lot of Indian directors are no more afraid of experimenting with new ideas and breaking free of the typical mould of Bollywood potboilers. Patriotism and period cinema has come of age and creativity amongst the artists is at its zenith. “Out of the Box” thinking is very much evident in films like ‘Lageraho Munnabhai’ & ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ where the social message has been conveyed without compromising with the entertainment value.
The boring yesteryear’s artistic or parallel cinema is passé. The young breeds of artists believe in narrating a real story, without letting the audience’s attention wander for even a moment. Human relationships & emotions are being put forward to the audiences without any pre judgmental approach thus accepting the maturity of the audiences. Young breed of directors such as Farhaan Akhtar, Karan Johar etc are going great guns and are all set to take the Indian cinema to a different level altogether.
