Upcoming Bollywood Movies in 2020


Upcoming Bollywood Movies


You know when you go down memory lane and look back at the biggest films of the 90s in Bollywood, you would realize that most of the smash hits were actually remakes of international films or Tamil and Telugu movies. The biggest the smash hit of 1992 "Beta" starring Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit was a remake of a Tamil film starring K. Bhagyaraj, the1993 smash hit - "Aankhen" was actually inspired from the 1967 Tamil film "Anubhavi Raja Anubhavi". Commercial Bollywood's inspiration wasn't only restricted to Indian cinema the duo of Abbas Masthan who made a name for themselves in the '90s created all remakes of international films. 1993 from Baazigar being a remake of a "Kiss Before Dying",  "Daraar" being based on "Sleeping with the Enemy" and the 1999 film "Baadshah" is clearly inspired by several films including "Nicks of Time" and "If Looks Could Kill". This was also the time where copyright laws were not as stringent as they are today. So creators just like the music back in the day could plagiarize scripts and tunes to their heart's content and generally face no backlash. The penetration of Indian cinema on a global scale and the lack of coverage regarding the problem with unoriginal ideas led to many artists and creators actually thriving. This is not to discount the fact that there wasn't any innovation and original stories but the sad reality are that commercial Bollywood in the 90s was either dominated by Suraj Bharjatia or family films or remakes.

I think in this phase there is a lot of good work that's going happening in south films and that's been that's been remade in Bollywood I think it's just a face.

Distributors throwing themselves at their feet on the set saying when's your film coming to my theatres you know we're running out of money's it is like a drought out there we're waiting for something please guys they were like the princes of the film industry in that sense, 




There was a huge shift however in the late 90s and early 2000. Especially after "Dilwale Dulania Le Jayenge" and its roaring success. With the prime, the focus of creators to make romantic epics Aamir khan would follow the next year with "Raja Hindustani", Shahrukh would reign over 1997 and 1998 with "Dil To Pagal Hain", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hain" and Salman khan blew the box office out of the park in 1999 with "Hum Saath Saath Hain" and "Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam." This was also a period in commercial Bollywood which produced timeless music songs that still produce a sense of nostalgia and nothing but positivity without any bias what you have to admits that the following years all the way up to the mid-2000s were ruled and I'm strictly talking about economics in context to the highest-grossing firms by Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra from "Mohabbatein", "Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham",  "Kal Ho Na Ho". and "Veer-Zaara" romance were simply thriving and there was no stopping that. There was still, a sense of authenticity because these stories were original to the creators and were producing music that is still remembered today. What you may have noticed regarding the period in the early to late 2000s is that I did not mention Salman khan and it is because he went through a massive slump momentary rise and again huge slump at the box office in this period but one decision I believe changed the game of what producers feel about safe bets in commercial Bollywood.

It started in 2009 and it hasn't stopped ever since. The Telugu film "Pokiri" remake "Wanted". After a momentary above-average performance at the box office with the "Sethu" remake "Tere Naam" in 2003. Salman suffered a huge slump creatively and at the box office, with projects like "Lucky No Time for love""Baabul", "Yuvvraaj", "London Dreams". It wasn't smooth sailing at all but there was absolute frenzy when Salman came on the screen as Radhe in "Wanted". The trend ladies and gentlemen have not stopped and music for some reason has just followed along.

See what I want to do is when somebody okay with all this manghai and all that stuff when somebody buys a ticket I want him to go inside have a blast and come out okay. I want with all the dukh and all the sorrow and all the manghai in all the garibi all the problems in their house, you know I just want when they go to see a film they should come out with paisa wasool. 


Only did Salman khan's career at the box office get revived but his future projects proved this model that worked was the one that was best suited for execution. Especially commercial Bollywood films that are presented on such a large scale from "Ready" to "Bodyguard " to even kick the trend was already set. Guess who followed suit with abundant success Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar,  Devgan and Rohit Shetty taking over the "Singham" franchise made originally popular by "Surya" and the Tamil film industry. While Akshay did "Rowdy Rathore" a Telugu remake followed by "Boss" Malayalam remake and "Holiday" a Tamil remake again. When starlet films such as this were doing such massive numbers production companies are bound to channelize their funds for more and more again. This is no way to say that this was only happening during this time but to come to terms with reality especially of the biggest hits of the year that the top 5 highest grosses post the 2010s always had a remake. When a capitalist mindset thinks about such a model they think to themselves. Why not more -

The film is a remake from the south and it's amazing to see the same film which is released in the south also "Rowdy Rathore" in Chennai and Hyderabad it is doing one of the very big the business I'm surprised that people want to see the same film in a different language it's the same film at the end of it.

Now while the digital age is booming and music companies have huge audiences online it becomes an easier method for them to churn out songs at their disposal for both singles as well as for movies. The sad reality is that while we mock the lack of innovation on twitter as more and more remixes get produced in films the number of streams and views they generated just because of the recall value gives the creators more incentive to keep on producing more and more. While there are a few creators who believe in original music for films commercial films still resort to having one or two smashes hit remixes for Nora Fatehi to get the buzz starting. Because I'll tell you one thing Nora Fatehi guarantees its views.

there is an original composition and people have worked hard on it the director has given you know the idea and the composer is done the lyric right has done the actors have acted so it's holy for people you can't take that push all the names and put a remixes name on it and they don't even credit the original composers. 

Let's look at the current scenarios though while "War" and "URI" were huge hits in 2019 "Kabir Singh" was one of the biggest hits a remake of a Telugu film "Arjun Readdy".

when uh the opening day of Kabir Singh, it had actually come out they do those previews the night before or something like that year and the highest previews got sold in Hyderabad yeah I was like okay, now this is strange right you're like so it's a city that watches this the film fully wants to watch it first. 


Nepotism In Bollywood

Shahid Kapoor in the big leagues as a leading hero in Bollywood while all eyes were on him on his next movie knowing very well a bad commercial decision like "Bhatti Ghul" can not be afforded anymore he connected upcoming Bollywood movies to the already proven and successful projects like a "Jersey" with Nani. There is a sense of security especially when there is pressure to mimic the same success as your last film or there seems to be no hope whatsoever to set eyes on the original and especially successful stories getting produced from the south even the international market. Just look at this case right now Varun Dhawan biggest commercial success is "Jurdwa 2" so why not remake another David Dhawan film to mimic the same model, by the way, "Coolie No. 1" in itself is a remake of a Tamil film. Aamir Khan had a huge dip with the shocking product that was "Thugs of Hindostan" so he dedicates more than a year to the adaptation of Forrest Gump, a proven classic Tiger Shroff has tested the majority of his success from the "Baaghi" franchise each part remakes of Telugu and Tamil movies. The model is also being used to safeguard debuts for new faces where Janvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter made their debut with the remake of "Sairat", a Marathi film, Sunil Shetty's son Ahan Shetty is also set to debut with Tara Sutaria in the remake of "RX100"

But what's the point of all of this. Robin Sharma rightly said the antidote to stagnation is innovation but when money is involved and as a stakeholder in a production company if Salman promises to return that would even make Kevin O'Leary jump from the shark tank seat and dance enjoy it isn't going to stop anytime soon till we the audience decide with our dollar and carefully distinguish between Chatsworth our time and money and what isn't the cycle will continue. The rants on twitter for good cinema will not be worth it if you still go in the evening buy the tickets for the film you roasted online audience can only force change for this remake phase to end.  that was an article guys write down in the comments below but there are some reviews or articles/ideas for our blog.
