There was a time when you were expected to follow a particular template to dish out a story as a filmmaker but now the situation has changed. Any concept that is innovative and offers realism to it finds huge acceptance. In a place like Bollywood where the market is wide, this is more in demand.
So, a new trend has begun and this has to do with coming up with biopics. In that, another change is being observed now. Earlier, most of the biopics were made on legendary people who have made the nation proud or achieved something unique. But now even a common man’s tale has joined the list.
For instance, the film Lagaan was an unsung hero’s story and many got connected. The same is the case with Sarbjit. But there is a catch. The marketing has to be done rightly because not many know the story. If the audience is not getting connected, lack of proper promotion is the issue.
