2009: The beginning of a good year for Bollywood?

2008 was nothing better than a disaster year for Bollywood. I can not remember the names of even five movies that earned a lot of money in the box office. Most of the movies peformed very badly and it brought only frustration for more and more people and they felt that may be the good time of Bollywood was over. In India, people are obsessed with two things that cricket and Bollywood.

Yes, you are right India is playing very well in cricket these days. India has defeated Australia and England in the last two months at home. So, naturally many people are excited about it but at the same time, Indians can never be away from Bollywood for a long time. So, there is a lot of hope that 2009 will be a bright year for the film industry. There is some reason for this kind of optimism. The main reason is that after Diwali some of the movies are getting decent amount of money. Now, it is the time of recession and you can think that the movies will get less money as most people are reluctant to spend more. However, look at the success of Aamir Khan’s latest movie Ghajini. It has got a very impressive first day income. And many people are now hoping that this will be the beginning a very good year in 2009.
