Watching movies is the best past-time activity among all age groups. People are so excited to watch their favourite superstars essaying a new role in their upcoming movies. There are different genres of cinema. The categories include action, thriller, suspense, romance, horror, and art. With the evolution of cinema, many new trends tend to take place. But that does not mean that we ignore the previous trend that had been the trendsetter in cinema.
We all must have enjoyed our childhood seeing the action movies starring Ajay Devgan, Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty, Sanjay Dutt, Salman Khan, and more. In terms of comedy, actors like Govinda and Johnny Lever became a better medicine of laughter. In terms of romance, Shahrukh Khan became the epitome of a lover boy with movies like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. However, he did make an impact on essaying negative roles in movies like Baazigar, Darr and Anjaam, but people still remember him as a romantic hero.
Advent Of Web Series
Coming on to the current scenario, we are seeing the new props of actors like Ayushman Khurana, Vicky Kaushal, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rajkumar Rao, Ranbir Kapoor, Ranvir Singh, and more. But currently, I am seeing a new trend emerging, which is that of web series. You must have watched the posters like Bhaukaal, Guilty, Breathe Into The Shadows, Ashram, etc printed on Metro stations and hoardings. Now, what is so special about it. Has it become a new trend of entertainment?
Impact On Viewers
To some extent, I would say yes, they have captured people’s interest in a series of episodes. They come up with interesting subjects. As for an example, Bhaukaal on Max Player. This web series has been inspired by the life of Navneet Sekera, a well-known IPS officer. Actors like Abhishek Bachhan and Bobby Deol too have roped in for getting a meaty role in web series like Breathe into the shadows and Ashram. There are other known faces from Bollywood like Kiara Advani who have acted in the web series named ‘Guilty’. So what is prompting these stars to bag their role in web series? Well, it is the script which grabs the attention of actors as well as the viewers like us to watch it.
These web series are away from the usual love triangle stuff and all that crackling action scenes which we have been watching in usual Bollywood movies.
If commercial movies don’t excite you much, then web series is the best alternative of entertainment to enjoy your quality time. Nowadays, there is nothing new to see in Bollywood movies leaving some notable movies aside. But web series come with a better script holding the attention of the viewer till the end. If you travel daily by metro, you can see many people glued towards their smartphones watching some web series of any genre. Well, there must be something which makes web series different from the commercial cinema. Now people have become very smart about their choices, and are no more confined to the specific flavour.
