Akshay Kumar’s ‘OMG 2’ and Abhishek Bachchan’s ‘Ghoomer’ have started to change the face of Bollywood as an industry.
In a constantly changing India, it is high time Bollywood starts to change too. Films like Ghoomer and OMG 2 are raw and heartwarming, while also being educational, and are, therefore, pivotal in redefining what Bollywood is all about. They break stereotypes in so many ways, be it talking about sex education on the silver screen or by showing a para-athlete succeeding against all odds.
In Akshay Kumar’s OMG 2 we see characters talking about the importance of sex education in a country like India and Abhishek Bachchan’s Ghoomer is all about the inspiring story of an athlete fighting back against all odds to reclaim a spot in the national cricket team after a life changing accident.
Stories like these are few and far between, especially in a country like India where we often turn a blind eye. When Megastars like Akshay Kumar and Abhishek Bachchan go that extra step to break stereotypes and shackles, the ever evolving audience is filled with hope. Bollywood needs films like OMG 2 and Ghoomer, that dare to dream, films that define an era and redefine Bollywood, bring audiences back to theatres and more importantly put Bollywood back on top.
