NOIDA: The revival of Punjabi cinema has outpaced the business of Hindi films and is seen as the most coveted money spinner these days, said noted film director David Dhawan at a seminar ‘Changing trends in Indian Cinema’ held at the 5th Global film festival here today organized under the leadership of Asian Education Group President Sandeep Marwah who is the founder of the first film city in north India.
He further said that the Indian cinema has had no change but for the concepts that are loaded with variable story lines now. “You could never imagine a decade ago that films like ‘Barfi’ or ‘ Vicky Donar’ could do a good business,” he added.
Stressing the need for more movies that could be jointly seen by a family, David Dhawan said that the use of unparliamentary language in films, though a new trend, is blocking the family viewership. He also said that music was the integral part of the film and is totally unacceptable to experiement movies without music.
Asian Education Group President Sandeep Marwah said that regional cinema is making waves in the Indian cinema though it is a misconception with most of us that Indian cinema just means Hindi films. “Hindi films are the most popular but Indian cinema is factually a package of different regional feature films,” he added.
