While describing India to the world, a popular topic that is always spoken of, is the country’s cinema. With more than 1800 movies made annually in the country, every Indian has grown up on a hearty appetite of movies, that have influenced us in many ways. And not just us, but even people in countries as far as Peru, which have dedicated SRK fan clubs and Russia, where Raj Kapoor was a bonafide legend and is yet not forgotten.
Today, Indian movie-buffs have a variety of subjects and genres, to choose from. With remakes, sequels and prequels of popular movies, documentaries, short films, and many other forms of cinema, the Indian viewer is spoilt for choice. And hence, even makers are upping their ante, thereby ensuring that movies become a cinematic experience or a visual
treat for their audiences.
In the past few years, production budgets have shot up, with more emphasis on quality and technology used in making a film. Producers are leaving no stone unturned in assuring that the best is available for the viewers. And in return, with the increase in the number of streaming platforms, movies are assured of high visibility and better reach.
