EntertainmentWith Drishyam 2, is Bollywood climbing up the ladder again?


Bollywood is still alive and the people who had earlier declared the end of Hindi cinema because of consistent flops in 2022 are to rethink their views again. The latest release of Drishyam 2 which has got an amazing response from the audiences, critics, and people visiting the theatres is a rising sign of Bollywood getting back to its form. In the first ten months of the year, Bollywood definitely had many flop movies and below-average films getting released, thus making people feel that there is no further scope in Hindi cinema.

Also, the constant comparisons of Hindi movies with top-grossing South Indian movies like KGF 2, RRR, and Ponniyin Selvan: 1 was making people working in Bollywood feel insecure. Many rumors started doing the rounds that Bollywood is dying. But the films released in November and December of 2022 have changed that negative perception towards Bollywood again. Although there was a lot of backlash for Hindi films by certain sections of society who would trend on social media about boycotting certain films for their vested interests, the Hindi film industry is still strong in its roots.
