For sheer excitement, the kind of money spent, and the number of films produced, India's Film industry, known as Bollywood, easily outdoes Hollywood. Production costs are a fraction of Hollywood budgets, but the recent films with big names, very grand sets and locations have started to narrow this gap. Many famous directors have at least one song set abroad, if not a large part of the film. This has proved to be a formula for success.
Most Bollywood directors are known to provide popular entertainment. Indian cinema is shared entertainment for the entire family. The story usually follows the same pattern or beaten track with only a change in the hero, heroine and settings. The components of the average Indian film are romantic stories, lavish costumes and sets, and catchy songs sung in exotic places.
A film without songs is hard to find, and most songs are set in romantic places. Yash Chopra, one of the most famous Bollywood directors, has gone to Switzerland so often to film song sequences that the Swiss government has decided to give him an award for the contribution his film has made towards tourism in the country. What is move, they have named the lake where he often shoots the Chopra Lake!
Bollywood has begun experimenting too as is seen from the recent film made in English called Bride and Prejudice, base on Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice. The film was a success both in the UK and in Ireland. Bollywood, it would seem, has gained recognition worldwide.
