If we closely examine movies in the present decade (belonging to any language), I feel that they are realistic comparing old melodrama ages or masala movies of 1980s and 1990s. I feel audience are now wise, and they always try to relate movies to real life incidents. Technically movies are far far better, and in ideas and thoughts too, now audience are willing to accept realistic movies and experimental ideas, which was not quite common earlier.
Earlier coming out of age movies and bold subjects were not accepted by family audiences, and such experiments have ended in box office disasters. Though majority of Bollywood movies now are not suited to watch aside family members, background dancers with colourful costumes for romantic songs have almost disappeared - may be a realistic visualization is the new trend. But item numbers have gone up drastically.
High demand for fast tracks is a trend set since 1970s or earlier. So demand of dance numbers is not a new trend, of course.
What are other major changes you feel happened in Bollywood cinema and other language movies, since 2010s?

|I don't care deducting one point from my account for such a wonderful post...... Yes I too agree, every era has produced some outstanding movies, and some of the movies on socially relevant subjects stood against the test of time. Most recently I watched Parakh made in the 1960s. But the topic on which the subject is made is still relevant and India has not changed a little bit in this case..... There are many such movies based on politics, adultery etc. - Sandhya Rani - 6 years ago|
|yes, yes... u have quoted a great point. Days have gone where lead characters were placed as Rama or Sita. Films of today are willing to show negative shades of lead characters as well. Audience too has accepted the fact... and nowadays they are celebrating villain characters also.... Dhoom series is the best example - Sandhya Rani - 6 years ago|
|Running low quality scripts on superstars' shoulders is one of the major drawbacks of Indian cinema at present - Sandhya Rani - 6 years ago|
|malayalam films are blessed..... Films of 1970s and 1980s of Padmarajan, Bharatan etc were not so :). They made movies ahead of time - Sandhya Rani - 6 years ago|
|I mean Malayalam movies made in the past two decades are fitted for family audience, it's not the case of old b&w movies with double meaning songs or bold scripts of 1970s and 1980s, often categorized under new wave cinema (No option to edit posts:)) - Sandhya Rani - 6 years ago|
|yes very true...many movies now a days are very interesting and watchable.. specially from nivin pauly and DQ.. love all their movies... :) - Divya - 6 years ago|
