Cinema has a very important role to play in society and its importance increases in context of Bollywood since it has gathered a widen range of audiences both in India and Pakistan. But the flop Bollywood movies of 2017, if analyzes gives a good opportunity to revisit the essence of Cinema and making films.
Cinema is envisaged as the tool to demonstrate the history and existing meta narratives through allegories so that the true picture of past and present could be translated for the audiences. But the Bollywood flops of 2017 clearly indicates that they are missing a very important factor and that is connecting with the life of common people. And the issue of common people remains around the socio-political lines.
Bollywood has no doubt made some extra-ordinary movies and in the recent times it has been noticed that in the third world countries, personal stories transcend the boundaries of private life to become a national story like three idiots as it was not the story of three individuals rather it was the story of majority people in India.
Fortunately or unfortunately 2017 flop movies could not pick up the the expectations and issues related to a majority of people as it is undisputed fact that with growing times the socio-political trends change to which people are directly connected like the demonetization, increase in GST (tax) could not be seen in any of these flop movies otherwise it could have attracted a large populace. Instead the Bollywood industry kept its focus to the issues which were less important or even negligible like Nationalism as depicted in Dangal and The Ghazi Attack.
It is a high time for Bollywood Industry to recover the prestige of Cinema and live up to its dignified role and it is only possible if the filmmakers observe the changing socio-political developments and bring it to their movies so the common men could easily connect with it.
