AMOL PALEKAR - BOLLYWOOD COPIES HOLLYWOOD FILMS

Either you think of a storyline and give it a form of movie script or else you convert a literary creation into a script. These are two different things. Hrishi-da was quite proficient in making movies from his stories and literary creation. The problem with Hindi cinema is that it is mostly inspired by Hollywood films. Bollywood filmmakers like to make movies taking masala from two or three Hollywood movies.  A filmmaker”s source of inspiration could be anything. But the creation should be original. Hrishi-da’s film is the perfect example. The story of the movie is quite simple but the moustache drama will not let the audience think of anything else. As far as I am concerned, I have been a strong supporter of making movies of literary background. It is quite difficult for me to make movies of such excellence and Hrishi-da alone was proficient in creating such marvels. A lot of comedy movies have been made and will continue to be made based on this story. But how many of them have reached even close to Golmaal? I do not consider the Indian audiences responsible for it. The audience which has appreciated Satyajit Ray’s Pather Panchali can’t be ignorant. I expect that filmmakers can make better movies than Golmaal, but till then, all the talks of a brilliant comedy will revolve around Golmaal.
