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?
