Analysing the box office collection of the recently released Marvel Movies’ ‘Avengers Endgame’ anyone can say that world audience is fascinated by films made on a subject that is beyond earth. Not only in Hollywood movies, in Bollywood too there are numbers of movies which either feature either aliens or superheroes who actually hail from the outer world.
The creative aptitude of directors has brought forth a series of films on poles apart subjects. It includes periodic films, sci-fi movies, action movies, family drama and many more. Again, while a film like ‘999’ dwells upon an ongoing issue, writers even have not skipped penning absurd movies.
Interestingly, the subject matter of a film is not only limited to the earth, but even flicks have been made taking topics from the outer world.
In ‘Ambarstadom’ while a team of the crew members move to the space to set everything right at the high sky, action sequence has also been picturised in the space. The popular English series ‘James Bond’ presents some thrilling action sequences in the space, above the world. Not only on the higher altitude but films like ‘Journey to the Centre of the earth’ leads the pivotal characters of the flick to the centre of the earth where they find miraculous objects and comes across fantasy sequences. It seems the human mind has no limitation to think.
The Mumbai based Hindi film industry, popularly known as Bollywood, initiated its voyage from the first talkie movie ‘Alam Ara’ in 1936 and so far has measured quite a long journey producing a number of movies. In this span of around a hundred years the industry has presented numerous films of different tastes to woo different types of audiences.
Indian audience has chosen to watch a variety of genres including superhero movies like ‘Krrish’, ‘Bhavesh Joshi superhero’, ‘Ra One’, ‘Shahenshah’, ‘Ajooba’ etc. However, unlike Hollywood movies, the superheroes in these films don’t hail from any outer world, rather most of them are normal social persons who turn out as the superhero. But in ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ the character ‘Jadu’ has been featured as an alien who helps out the protagonist, a man of limited intellect and childish personality to later turn out as a complete man using its superpower. And the film was super hit.
Following footsteps of Hindi and English films, Odia movie industry has also presented films like ‘Keun Jagataru Asila Bandhu’, a story based on aliens.
If we go for a micro-level analysis of the flow of films in different languages we find a lot of information, entertainment and showcase of hard-core acting, stunt and action aptitude by the actors.
