Are you are a Bollywood Films lover? Of course, with or without the famed Kenyan commentator DJ Afro, you’ll agree with me they are top-notch. Especially, if you are the type of movie and or Tv series lover sharing my taste.
With an unending appetite for action-filled, thrilling and highly exaggerated graphic contextual stories, Bollywood Films fills the gap. Forget about the Bayhemsim or even the Cameroon epic Hollywood feature films.
With this in mind, we can comfortably state that; – The world’s movie capital is not Hollywood but Bollywood.
How Bollywood Films Industry Came To Be
As a matter of fact, Indians are in love with movies, even though most films follow a similar format called masala (the word for a collection of spices). Movies are three to four hours long (and include an intermission), include dozens of songs and dances (featuring 100 or so choreographed dancers), top stars, the story between the songs of boy meets girl (without any kissing or sexual contact), lots of action (though no bloodshed), and always – a happy ending.
In reality, fourteen million Indians go to the movies on a daily basis (about 1.4% of the population of 1 billion) and pay the equivalent to the average Indian’s day’s wages (the US $1-3) to see any of the over 800 films churned out by Bollywood each year. That’s more than double the number of feature films produced in the United States.
Although American-made films have been edging into India, only the blockbuster Titanic has ever made India’s top five list. One hundred and fifty U.S. films arrived in India in 1998. However, Indian films have become somewhat of an international obsession. Here is the full Bollywood Industry Profile.

Well, don’t ask me if I speak Arabic, Nubian or even Indiana, all I need is the flow of the story, a pack of pops and am ready to roll.
Eventually, with so much going around the likes of Hollywood, Netflix, Fox, etc. most of the time, we are left empty. In fact, for most of the film industry giants, we are left dry for so long. Crossing fingers and craving for the next after movies or series.
Sometimes, whether due to lack of enough budget or even reception, some of them have vanished from the scene just as they start. I must say, competition is stiff out there guys. As to who carries the crowd at the end of the day or which movie premiers first is a story for another day.
Not to mention, whenever something eye pounding pours in, we find ourselves loosing all the appetite. Inasmuch as you take the next few hours behind your screen, you need something enticing.
The fact being that, some of the movies end up boring and exhausting all our precious wee time. Adding salt to the wound, you seat around and start on a new series, for instance, but, endlessly take a break awaiting some sort of continuity.
