Bollywood’s rough patch saw a number of big ticket releases failing to make a mark on the box office. Despite having big budgets, a stellar cast and a lot of hype, many films failed to draw audiences to theatres, putting the entire industry into worry. Tisca Chopra, who recently appeared in the horror series Dahan, recently gave her two cents on the same.
In conversation with Hindustan Times, Chopra spoke of how many of the filmmakers seemed to be people of commerce, who always looked at things from a commercial point of view. They relied on concepts such as economies of scale and formulas in order to sell things. But Chopra believes that the entertainment field was akin to pulling a rabbit out of a hat. Once one knew what went on behind the trick, it lost its charm.
The actress went on to say that filmmakers needed to understand when things were getting repetitive and predictable. Seismic change was needed to combat that. “Now, we need to rethink. Change is the order of the day,” she said.
Chopra believed that more effort should be concentrated on the writing, so that the script could be developed as the foundation upon which the film was structured. This would ensure that the content of the film was relevant and better.
Chopra was last seen in the horror series Dahan: Raakan Ka Rahasya, which also featured Saurabh Shukla, Rajesh Tailang, Mukesh Tiwari, and Ankur Nayyar in pivotal roles. The series saw the actress essay the role of an IAS officer who moves to a village known as The Land of The Dead, after the death of her husband. Shortly after her move, a number of deaths as well as strange, logic defying phenomena occur in the village.
Dahan, helmed by Vikranth Pawar, is available for streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
