compare Hollywood to Bollywood would be easy to see the differences between the
two. Hollywood is a physical place in the city of Los Angles, whereas Bollywood
is only a term to describe a Hindi film industry. Hollywood originates from American
cinema, and Bollywood originates from the small part in India that produces
Hindi films. Hollywood was created in the later part of the 1800’s. Bollywood
was created in the 1900’s. The languages that are used throughout the films in
Bollywood are mostly Hindi and some other languages. Whereas in Hollywood the
language varies from film to film.
annual production of films produced each fiscal year is greater in Bollywood.
Bollywood produces about 1,200 films per year. Hollywood only produces about
500 a year. Seeing that Hollywood only produces about 500 films, they are the
highest mainstreaming industry around the globe. Whereas Bollywood ranks in at
number three of the highest mainstreaming industries around the globe.
story lines for both are similar and different. Bollywood’s films incorporate
romance or love plots in all the films, and have more complicated plots with a
variety of topics. Hollywood on the other hand, depends on who and what the
writer want the audience to experience. The films have some complicated story
plots and action plots as well.
length of movies are crucial to all audiences. Films should be entertaining and
never to lengthy, were the audience gets bored of what they came to view on
screen. Bollywood tends to go overboard, the films last from 2-3 hours in length.
Hollywood films are short and to the point, 1-1 ½ hours long.
likes to incorporate dance and music in all the films they produce, no matter
what. Their interpretation is that music and dance keeps the movie fresh and
exciting so that the audience doesn’t want to leave. Hollywood thinks that to

to compare powerful film industries can be very difficult and what measures to
take when trying to compare two industries. It’s hard in the sense that the two
industries have two very different kinds of audiences that watch the films that

ways, which also has no comparison for the two. The two both have very
different types of revenue, along with the kinds of film production as well.

world. Whereas Bollywood is making progress in the reputation department. They
have grown recognition over the year and they came in number three as a
prominent film industry.
films are produced in a magnitude of large numbers, which makes them easily to be
international. Wear as in India everyone is not an audience for films that
incorporates love, music, and religious aspects in every film. So the Indian
audiences get different perspectives when watching films that are made in their
country. The two are still hard to compare, because how do you compare if the audiences
is targets films in different perspectives of areas of content.
safe to say that every country makes their movies for the ardencies that are
populating the cinema. The categories are more environmental and culture
motivated in India, than in America. Hollywood movies rely heavily on making
films about war, spies, science, drama, and technology. Hollywood movies would
seldomly have movies that are motivated by corruption, poverty, and contain 5-7
songs in the movie.
is gaining more countries that are starting to view their films. Hollywood or
Bollywood which is better? Only the person who is viewing the film can answer
that question, because it’s all about preference in what you like to watch.
