Unfortunately, Bollywood is receiving a dislike button from every corner since the last few months. Films after films with eminent storylines, insights, are getting knocked down at the box office. Even the most celebrated superstars with their screen presence are failing to impress the audiences.
While some say it’s a consequence of ‘Bollywood boycott’ propaganda Rakesh Roshan takes a step forward to brief out upon this matter where he elaborates the causes to this utter fall from his perspective.
The versatile veteran actor Rakesh Roshan is surely known for his magnetic acting skills, but more for his back to back blockbuster film making, film directions and screenwriting. Needless to say, he’s a treasure of knowledge and unmatchable experiences.
Rakesh sir has pointed out some valid points recent Bollywood films failing at the box office. His statement accuses the selection of subjects by filmmakers, and also the songs made.
In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, Rakesh Roshan said that
“People are making films that they and their friends like to watch. They are picking subjects that appeal to a very minuscule section of the audience. A big chunk of the audience cannot relate to it,”.
Rakesh Roshan further spoke about how songs played an important role in the success of a film.
It’s an obvious fact that music is one of the major pillars of a film. Starting from the Golden Era of film, it’s vividly observed hence undoubtable how music has done a significant role in uplifting the films high. Hence a film gets far steps back if the songs are not worth it.
He addressed the songs of neoteric films to be ‘relegated to the background’ or just the intro is played. The filmmaker’s statement reads, ‘Aap puraane gaano se hero ko yaad rakhte hai (You remember actors because of old songs). Whenever you listen to old classics, you remember the heroes who were featured in those songs. Nowadays, since there are no songs, toh hero yaad nahi aate hai (no one remembers the hero). As a result, becoming a superstar is very difficult at present.’
For a reference to his statement he states an example of the recent blockbuster South films Pushpa and RRR, Roshan said that the songs of those films became a craze and ‘so we should learn’.
On the workfront, Rakesh Roshan is gearing up on the next installment in the Krrish franchise, Krrish 4.
