Bollywood has the least originality in all aspects of movie making and also music. So many music have been lifted of from other countries popular songs and also stories. 


The actors and actresses are limited, despite having many talented artists who do not get the chance to show case their talent. 


Indian Tv is worse, the amount of regressive shows they make and the garish OTT sets costumes, which are far from reality.


In those aspects at least Kdramas and movies do show case their culture it all depends on what drama/movies you have watched. They make one of the best thrillers, Thai make best horror, Chinese best fantasy. if you are fan of these genre. Even South India has more originality, even though they do make movies from other countries.


Some of the best thrillers I have watched from Kdrama; The tunnel, Defendant, The Veil etc. 


I guess living in a multi cultural country helps to build acceptance to other culture besides ours.

Actually Indians are way too proud of themselves. SNS are full of 'proud to be indian' comments. Such comments come across as arrogant. Thoda humility dikhana acha hota hai. 

There are many countries. Their citizens don't shout I am proud to be American/french/Korean etc at every small achievement of their countries.

Sorry if it was off topic. I was irritated by such comments so bol diya.

Oh man Koreans will make you feel like Indians r saint.. 

They are highly rigid when it comes to other race and communities... Ppl with relatively darker complexion are called Africans, obsession with plastic surgery, the bullying in schools is extreme(forget name calling.. It's common for them to beat students up even if it's a girl..) . A kpop idol was kinda cancelled because he chose to marry his pregnant gf, if their idol has even one flaw as simple as being mean then ur career is over.. The lead girl from It's okay to not to be ok got dropped from future projects coz multiple ppl posted online that how mean she is as a person and is selfish....!!

Check YT for Indian/Pak vloggers in Korea.. The racism is really bad faced by desis.. Part of the reason I stopped being a crazy fan of Korean actors and idols...

This! Bollywood has evolved singe they caught the attention of many with movies like Devdas, K3G... but then there was a shift post-2010 ans it wasn't the same anymore. 

The Bollywod movies don't make one go from laughing to crying to smiling... anymore.



Some people who loved this aspect of Bollywood aren't as fond as the new type of movies being churn out. Also some actors (f/m) without the looks or charisma being deemed as the next big thing and hogging all the big interesting projects isn't satisfying.


I do think that Bollywood having exploded before the existence of streaming platforms like Netflix or Prime didn't help in it keeping its momentum and reaching another type of audience. Meanwhile, East Asian dramas are short, well-written and the actors are very good. 


I have seen some horrible actors there but then they improved tenfold because their audience won't let people with no talent ruining a movie/drama for them.

Some might still be lacking in the acting department but they make up for it with charisma and beauty. 

In Bollywood, a Katrina Kaif is one of the top actresses of the industry. She cannot act (she's been ok in a few movies) and directors keep casting her in challenging roles.



In East Asia, the interesting projects don't all go to the same set of people. Their industry is healthy in this regard but I don't envy them the Netizen.


I personally transitioned from Bollywood to South Indian movies to East Asian dramas (because I naively thought that I'd manage to only watch a one hour episode so that it wouldn't disturb my studies smiley36). 


The problem with some SI movies was that it  could be difficult to find subtitles.

Not only that, we don't need you to particularly care about what we think for us to point out something wrong. Actually, we do it under the assumption you don't  care. 


Or why would you proudly advertise you bigotry?


When people call bigots or sexists out, it's usually to make a point to others who might be reading. People, you know, like those at the receiving end of your bigotry, who might feel relieved at the support. 


@2nd Bold. Yet here you are, in Bollywood forum. smiley36


First you say I responded means i care

Then you assume I dont care ? smiley24


Then you said  you dont need me to care to point out what you think is wrong? And what you find wrong? That i am not interested in another culture? That is wrong for you, oh wait, not that, it is the sound, i made it sound like it is a virtue, 😲, i did not make any sound like that, if you are hearing sound of negativity, try cleaning your own brain and look for positivity. 


Nevermind what I am advertising, a negative mind will always see and hear and twist it with negativity even if there is nothing there.. 


Yes i am here, and i keep my discussions related to bollywood and actors, if you are here too, please concentrate on bollywood and not the users online.. If you have problem ignore my post or just press the report button 


P.s you dont want to know what it sounded like in my head when i was reading your comment smiley36
