Was wanting to post this since a long time. Will do it today.
What I will do is, I will put down a kind of film I want to be made in Bollywood. I am not going to say that I want this genre or that genre. But just mere synopsis that I would like to see a film being made on it. It would be glad if you guys participate as well.
1. I want a film of set of 5 friends (3 boys, 2 girls kind of deal). They should be of some 20 odd years and must be in some cool college. I want the film to deal with real life issues (sex, education, boys-bonding, Hostel vs Localities, groupism, career talks, love, betrayal, hatred, break-ups, farewell, nostalgia) and not standard kind of issues (which many film in this genre have been). I want the film to be ingenious about its script. I want it to deal all plots simultaneously and not chapter-wise. “Life in a Metro” had 9 odd characters and it pretty much developed each character and each story in 125 odd minutes. The film should get dark wherever its needed. But yes it should have all the fun that what a regular 20-year college group has. And it should be a bitter-sweet ending without taking any cinematic liberty.
I know many films are made on college going guys but not a single film have been even medium level realistic except “Mujhse Fraandship karoge” which was more about Facebook and it was a fun film, and not dark!
2. A film based on cricketer’s friendship. I have always wondered what would a Sehwag-Gambhir or a Dhoni-Raina do when they are off-field! What talks they share, what social life they have. This film should be fun but with a strong story which ultimately leads to a cricket match finale where the bonding of members make the win noise. The germ of this story comes from that little plot-line of Chak De India (Preeti and Komal having ego fights) This story should revolve around a cricket team and their team members unexposed life. The cricketers should have real traits and not fantastical. Every tiny things about cricketers must be in accordance with the story and not just for the heck of showing this-is-how-a-cricketer-lives. The film should deal with cricketer’s payment structure, their arrogance, the sweet-hearts, the romance, the friendship…all in a story!
