Bollywood, the highest film producer from Asian continent, can be found in Mumbai, one of the largest metropolises of India. Hollywood is located in Los Angeles of United States. Here, let me present you a small comparison of distant players and their influence.
Due to production capabilities of both industries the comparison is inevitable and offers us a logical overview. Although Hollywood’s filmography is vast but it’s worth mentioning the very first film ‘Sallie Gardner at a Gallop (1878), directed by Eadweard Muybridge.
For Bollywood, it’s Shri Pundalik (1912) was directed by Dadasaheb Tome. In the production of films, India, a 1.2 billion populous country has been competing with the US whose population is mere 300 millions.
In recent past, Bollywood produced films like 3 Idiots (2009) witnessed huge success at the box office and had collected $76.81 million. And, for Hollywood, James Cameron’s brain-child Avatar (2009) created history with record gross collection of $2.78 billion. Indian films have been appreciated and releasing globally.
Nevertheless, the cost of tickets is varied greatly. Watching a Bollywood film at a cost of $. 69 seem much cheaper when compared to a Hollywood film which costs $7.93.
However, among many other film industries of India, Kollywood (Tamil cinema) is gained popularity for its quality. It experienced rapid development and stable growth. It produced many talented craftsmen including artists like Shivaji Ganeshan and Rajini Kanth who won the hearts film goers worldwide.
