If filmmakers only made movies like RRR, Baahubali, and KGF 2, we would lose the diversity of storytelling in cinema. These movies, while highly entertaining, belong to a specific genre of commercial Indian cinema that heavily relies on spectacle and larger-than-life characters.
By limiting themselves to this genre, filmmakers would miss the opportunity to explore different themes and tell stories from different perspectives. They would also miss the chance to showcase different styles of filmmaking and experiment with different narrative techniques.
In addition, by focusing only on big-budget, high-concept films, filmmakers would neglect smaller, character-driven stories that are equally compelling. These stories often rely on subtlety and nuance rather than spectacle and may not have the same box office appeal as the aforementioned films, but they are no less important.
Furthermore, if all films were like RRR, Baahubali, and KGF 2, we would lose the chance to see more diverse representation on screen. While these films have made strides in including actors from different parts of India, they still largely focus on a specific kind of masculinity and heroism. By limiting themselves to this type of storytelling, filmmakers would neglect the opportunity to showcase stories about different kinds of people and experiences.
In conclusion, if filmmakers only made movies like RRR, Baahubali, and KGF 2, we would lose the diversity of storytelling in cinema. We would miss the chance to see different perspectives, styles of filmmaking, and themes. We would also lose the opportunity to see more diverse representation on screen. It is important for filmmakers to continue to experiment with different kinds of stories and styles to ensure that cinema remains a dynamic and evolving art form.
