Media, Criticism and <br />Own Opinion <br />Today, Bollywood business depends more on false promises, fake numbers <br />and lavish promotions. Producers have understood that if they can run all the <br />Cinemas house-full for 2 continuous weeks they can recover/earn all the <br />money. Even after a movie gets bad response, producers would big-mouth <br />about their success in terms of how much money they have made. <br />This proves that Bollywood is more about politics these days than entertainment <br />which is possible by media because of heavy money given for advertising in <br />media. <br />Inside the industry, there is an inevitable reality but media break it outside <br />for example, slum dug milliner, which is the reality of India but all the Indian <br />media said it is not true on the other hand some films have been badly <br />criticized by the Indian audience but media said it is a popular and highly <br />profitable movie, e.g. film kites. <br />Bollywood industry looks like a poor cousin to Hollywood.<br />Some shots are designed in the movie to dominate other countries like Pakistan, <br />Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and China.<br />
