Do our masala films lack the naadan element nowadays?

Look to the mass films in the 80s and 90s. They had some naadan element that made it grounded towards Malayali sensibilities. Examples are Devasuram, Dhruvam, Commissioner, Spadikam, The King, Lelam, Aaram Thampuran, and Pathram.

Nowadays, our mass films feel different. They seem to imitate 2000s Vijay movies with short punch dialogues after every few lines.

1984 is an interesting year where a female oriented tearjerker(tohfa) & a critically derided masala film(maqsad) beat amitabh's widely acclaimed Romcom(sharaabi) to become the top grossers of the year

4 Years of Ghayal Once Again- a Bollywood actioner made with a different template than the typical South style Masala films of the time with slick action by Dan Bradley (Jason Bourne fame). With a more polished screenplay and post-production, could have been a 100 cr grosser. (Opened at 9 cr)

[OPINION] Dabangg (2010) is one of the best Masala films from Bollywood

First post here. When talking about the usual mindless movies of Salman Khan or any Superstar in general people seem to mix Dabangg with a lot of other films in the same genre. But I think Dabangg is one of the best movies in the genre and deserves some appreciation.

Let me explain why.

  • Music: This movie had fantastic music. And not even the typical remade/copied bs unless I am not aware of it. Mast mast do nain, Munni badnaam, title song and there was one other song by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal which were all good. These days it is unlikely to see that many songs from a movie which are replayed so much. Usually, there is one song which stands out at best.
  • Main theme: The theme music was just badass. I don't know if this has been pulled from somewhere because it is awesome. I can't think of any other theme music in Bollywood action movies which was so good.
  • Action: The action of the movie imo was really good for a masala movie. It wasn't extremely over the top (not saying it was completely realistic) but considering Salman flying like Batman in race the action here was good. The fight scene in the Chulbul Pandey introduction, railway scene fight and the fight with Sonu Sood were all good and rewatchable imo. This scene is my personal favorite. Not saying it is realistic but at least it was innovative and didn't look like shit.
  • Great villain: Sonu Sood was a perfect antagonist.
  • Color grading: The movie had a very consistent color grading and even if I see just one scene I would be able to tell that it is a scene from this movie. It is not something that alone makes a movie good but I see that most good movies fit this criteria. Look at the consistent urban grading of Nolan's Dark Knight or The Godfather series. Lagaan is another example that comes to my mind. Obviously not comparing it to these movies but just saying that this movie nailed this.

I tried to watch Kick few years later and it was so cheesy or over the top that I had to stop it. Same goes for Race 3, Dhoom 3 etc. For some reason, they just managed to make a really good and rewatchable film which makes sense in a plethora of nonsensical masala movies. The story is simple, in fact, a bit of what the Bollywood films of 70s/80s were but the result was much better imo than what a lot of similar films try to give.

In the film Garam Masala, both Akshay Kumar and John can be seen standing together and checking their wallets at the same time. This a reference to both actors releasing same type of films on same release dates to make money, and one can see the cheques falling out of their pockets. #Deshbhakti

The balance between films with content and masala films.

With films like Uri , Badhaai Ho , Raazi , Andhadhun etc. being appreciated by the Audiences and critics alike and also raking in good box-office numbers and with masala films like Simmba also attaining success , I feel there is a good balance between content films and masala films. What's the sub's two cents on this?

[Discussion] Are there other indian films that are not part of bollywood (no song dance number,no mixed genre etc) example-The apu trilogy,Badshahi Angti,Mirch Masala etc

In my country india,We always have too many 'bollywood' movies that involve mixed genre, sometimes bad acting,non original plots and cut in dance numbers scenes during the movie.But is there any other indian films in current times that doesn't include the usual bollywood cliche as in no song dance number,no mixed genre etc such as the apu trilogy,Badshahi Angti,Mirch Masala etc
