Hi all Some Bollywood directors have strong links to rural India. This gets reflected in their films. I am talking of Tier II & Tier III towns and cities. These directors are able to whip up cinematic magic and tell a story which charms all of India. More and more Indians are able to identify the locales and character of such movies as compared to those glossy Yash Chopra movies shot in Western Europe. The film I have in mind is Bunty and Babli. The film is directed by Shaad Ali and stars Big B, Ahishek Bachchan, Aishwarya, Rani Mukherjee. As the film begins, the voiceover tells of "small towns". The film is about ambitions of Abhishek and Rani- who belong to a small town. It is a tightly knit story. I feel more and more movies based in the hinterland are being made today and are attracting crowds. What say ILites!
