Be it Hollywood or Bollywood, there are some movies which are evergreen and never leave the mind of the audience. Be it love stories like ‘Titanic’ or ‘Spiderman’ or Bollywood films like ‘Mughal-e-Azam’, ‘Sholay’ and ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’?
The film industry is a place where neither the actors nor the films released in their roles ever get old. This is the reason why the way old actors Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Raj Kumar are still in the mind of the audience, in the same way the audience appreciates their films even today. Be it Hollywood or Bollywood, there are some movies which are evergreen and never leave the mind of the audience. Be it love stories like ‘Titanic’ or ‘Spiderman’ or Bollywood films like ‘Mughal-e-Azam’, ‘Sholay’ and ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’? Seeing the inclination of the audience towards old films, the trend of showing old films once again from Hollywood to Bollywood and from Bollywood to South is in full swing.
Due to this trend, recently the film ‘Gadar Ek Prem Katha’ starring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel was re-released in theatres. For this, a special screening was held for the audience, in which families were invited to watch the film with reduced tickets, so that the new generation could also see this film. The special reason behind its release is also that the film’s sequel ‘Gadar 2’ is going to hit the theaters in August. Even before this, many old successful films have been presented in a new style, which is also benefiting the producers. For example, the film ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ was introduced as a color film in 2004.
Similarly, Dilip Kumar’s film ‘Naya Daur’, which was once shown in ‘black and white’, was also presented on the color screen. ‘Sholay’ was also screened in 3D. The trend of re-release of successful films continues not only in Hollywood and Bollywood but also in the South. For example, Rajamouli’s ‘Simhadri’ was screened again on Jr NTR’s birthday in May. Apart from this film, preparations are on to re-release several films in Telugu and other South languages.
Capitalizing on the success of the film ‘Pathan’, when Yash Raj Banner re-released ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ in some theaters on Shahrukh’s birthday, it made a profit of 25 lakhs in a single day. The audience thronged the theaters to watch this film. In such a situation, it would not be wrong to say that the trend of Bollywood stars and their films speaks volumes for the fans. In such a situation, if any film of your favorite artist, who has said goodbye to the world, is released, then it will be necessary for the audience to go to the theatre.
For this reason, when Sushant Singh Rajput’s films ‘MS Dhoni Untold Story’ and ‘Kedarnath’ re-entered the theatre, the audience took them by the hands. Similarly, Sridevi’s film ‘English Vinglish’, which was made in 2012, was released not only in India but also in China’s theaters, so the film was very much liked. According to sources, efforts are also on to re-screen many more classic films like ‘Mera Naam Joker’, Saransh, Piku, Kahaani, Fire, Barfi, Kati Patang, and Veerzaara so that some of these films can be screened again in the future.
