  1. 1. INSTITUTIONAL ANALYSIS
  2. 2. BOLLYWOOD INDUSTRY Bollywood is the informal term popularly used for the Hindi-language film industry based in Mumbai. It is derived from Bombay. India is the largest producer of films in the world, in terms of ticket sales and number of films produced i.e. 1000 movies per year. The Indian film industry is Multi-Lingual. The industry is supported mainly by a vast film-going Indian public, and Indian films have been gaining increasing popularity in the rest of the world—notably in countries with large numbers of expatriate Indians.The term is often incorrectly used to refer to the whole of Indian cinema; however, it is only a part of the total Indian film industry, which includes other production centres producing films in multiple languages. Bollywood is also formally referred to as Hindi cinema. The naming scheme for "Bollywood" was inspired by "Tollywood", the name that was used to refer to the cinema of West Bengal. The term "Bollywood" itself has origins in the 1970s, when India overtook America as the world's largest film producer. Raja Harishchandra (1913) is known as the first silent feature film made in India. By the 1930s, the industry was producing over 200 films per annum. The first Indian sound film, Ardeshir Irani's Alam Ara (1931), was a major commercial success. There was clearly a huge market for talkies and musicals; Bollywood and all the regional film industries quickly switched to sound filming. Following India's independence, the period from the late 1940s to the 1960s is regarded by film historians as the "Golden Age" of Hindi cinema. Some of the most critically acclaimed Hindi films of all time were produced during this period. Some of the examples include pyaasa, kaagaz ke phool, awaara,shree 420, etc. These films expressed social themes mainly dealing with working-class urban life in India. While commercial Hindi cinema was thriving, the 1950s also saw the emergence of a new Parallel Cinema movement. Though the movement was mainly led by Bengali cinema, it also began gaining prominence in Hindi cinema. Early examples of Hindi films in this movement include Chetan Anand's Neecha Nagar. In the 2000s, Bollywood began influencing musical films in the Western world, and played a particularly instrumental role in the revival of the American musical film genre. The Bollywood musical Lagaan was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and two other Bollywood films Devdas and Rang De Basanti were nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire (2008), which has won four Golden Globes and eight Academy Awards, was also directly inspired by Bollywood films, and is considered to be a "homage to Hindi commercial cinema".Bollywood films are mostly musicals and are expected to contain catchy music in the form of song-and-dance numbers woven into the script. A film's success often depends on the quality of such musical numbers. Indeed, a film's music is often released before the movie and helps increase the audience. Bollywood plots have tended to be melodramatic. They frequently employ formulaic ingredients such as star-crossed lovers and angry parents, love triangles, family ties, sacrifice, corrupt politicians, kidnappers, conniving

There have always been Indian films with more artistic aims and more sophisticated stories, both inside and outside the Bollywood tradition.Bollywood conventions are changing, however. A large Indian diaspora in English-speaking countries, and increased Western influence at home, have nudged Bollywood films closer to Hollywood models. EROS INTERNATIONAL Eros International is an Indian motion picture production and distribution company, based in Mumbai. The company was founded by Arjan Lulla in 1977. It is a leading global company in the Indian film entertainment industry. Eros co- produces, acquires and distributes Indian language films in multiple formats worldwide, including theatrical, television syndication and digital platforms. The group distribution network of over 50 countries, with offices in India, UK, USA, Dubai, Australia, Fiji and Isle of Man.

In 2010, Eros listed its Indian subsidiary Eros International Media Limited on the Bombay Stock Exchange ('BSE') and National Stock Exchange ('NSE') in India. they distribute their films to the domestic population in India, the South Asian diaspora worldwide and to non-Indian consumers who view Indian films that are subtitled or dubbed in local languages. Internationally, their distribution network extends to over 50 countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom and throughout the Middle East, where they distribute films to Indian expatriate populations, as well as Germany, Poland, Russia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, China and Arabic speaking countries, where we release Indian films that are subtitled or dubbed in local languages.

  4. 4. Eros typically releases 70+ films a year, of which a majority are regional language films. However, the focus of the company has been to consciously shift to a mix of medium to high films with well-known star cast and directors with a popular theme having mass audience appeal. In North America, they have a relationship with International Networks, a subsidiary of Comcast, to provide an exclusive SVOD service called "Bollywood Hits on Demand". The service is now carried on Cox, Rogers, Cable vision and Time Warner. Elsewhere internationally, we provide content to On Demand for VOD services it provides in the UK and the Middle East, as well as various other platforms. Eros International has entered into collaboration with Wal-Mart to sell Bollywood content through the retail giant's distribution network in Canada. Eros DVDs would initially be available in 27 Wal-Mart stores in Canada and the distribution would subsequently be extended to the entire Canadian Wal-Mart network, the company said in a filing with the London Stock Exchange. Over time, Eros will make available through Wal-Mart a large number of titles from its catalogue of over 1300 titles as well as its 30-40 new releases every year. The Eros-Wal-Mart tie-up will give Bollywood an extensive reach to both Asian and Non-Asian market sectors in Canada.
