Ever since its inception, Bollywood has grown to become the second largest film industry in the world. It has seen many twists and turns itself. It has reiterated its story through the films that made it large during that era. But none seemed to have paid attention to this story. After its first steps into the world of motion pictures, Bollywood gained a status of a social mirror. It started reflecting the societal problems and portrayed them fairly well on screen, for which it was timely exalted.
Post-Independence when India became a free country, all that remained in the hands of the public was a piece of land. This land too, was forcefully taken away by the zamindars who exploited the masses. The films of the time like Mother India, Do Bigha Zamin, Naya Daur became cult films that spoke of these struggles of the masses. Moreover, the films during mid-60s were usually set in villages, narrating the tale of a farmer.
In the mid-1970s there happened to be a shift. Urbanization attracted the youth and they started moving towards the city. The films showed the struggle of the youth to find a place amongst the city crowd. Poverty-stricken, they even started to pickpocket to earn their living. Films like Sholay, Roti Kapada Aur Makaan, Johnny Mera Naam won the audiences’ heart.
The struggle continued until the mid-80s which saw the rise of the Angry Young Man, Amitabh Bachchan. The increasing population and the decreasing job opportunities reflected in this Angry Young Man who became a representer and an icon for the youth of the time. Working in factories, in mills or as a Coolie was given prominence in these films.
The 90s was a fresh start for Bollywood, which had now reached the phase of adulthood. The children of the melee of people from the past decades were now grown up college-going adults. Their approach towards their career, towards their life was very different from that of their parents. It was a happy-go-lucky crowd. It was at this time when films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, Aashiqui, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa became blockbuster hits!
The turn of the millenium brought forth the Worldwide Web (internet). Globalization was kissing our feet and all that the youth of this time wanted was to fly, fly high…across the borders and feel the oceans. Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Dil Chahta Hai were some of the most popular films that released at this time. Ever since Bollywood is only becoming more beautiful day by day. However, films like Sarkar, Sarkar Raj, Raajneeti, Aarakshan have again stood up as a mirror of the society. Other films appreciated in this era of being bold and magnifying the vamp are films like Jism, Raaz, The Dirty Picture applauded for their hard-hitting yet beautiful portrayals.
With films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewaniand Raanjhanaa making moolah at the Box Office, we can never say that Bollywood will ever grow old rather it will get younger with each passing day.
