Bollywood Movies Tried To Change Bollywood:
Over the years, we have seen how much Bollywood has evolved in terms of content and characters.
There are some complex and unique characters in Bollywood movies that prove this change. It’s safe to say that these newly added characters and their stories are far more engaging and relatable to the audiences than the ones that were primarily about fighting the villain and rescuing the heroine. Let’s have a look:-
1. Dev D
Anurag Kashyap’s Dev D released in 2009. There are very few movies with such exceptional cinematography and well-defined characters. The music, as well, blends perfectly with the film. The rawness and realistic circumstances make the movie different.
2. Finding Fanny
Finding Fanny is not a regular Bollywood film. It’s quite different from what we see on screen. The story revolves around five dysfunctional characters who are on a mission to find Fanny. It’s a great attempt at dark comedy, and more movies like these should be encouraged.
3. Love Sex Aur Dhokha
People adore this movie for its rawness, audacity, and truthfulness. This movie is dark, gritty, and unusual. It’s great to see such diverse content in Bollywood. The movie is not just a sensual experience but way beyond that. It’s a thought-provoking film that would make you happy if you are a true cinema lover.
The Lunch Box is a rare film, for sure. There is no celebrated item number or any villain or hero, but just two characters who are helping each other with the most realistic problems we face in our lives.
Rajeev Khandelwal plays the role of a Muslim man who is blackmailed by a religious fanatic. It was a different movie back then when it got released. It’s an engaging film with diverse characters and out of the box storyline.
6. No Smoking
Anurag Kashyap is an exceptional director, and this movie is living proof. It was loved and appreciated by the audiences, and at the time when it released, it was considered complex and part of the new-age cinema.
