There was a time when the most expensive and highest grossing movies were Drama movies like KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GAM, LAGAAN, KAL HO NA HO, VEER ZAARA etc. But recently the trend has shifted to Action oriented films. I think last Drama film that gathered attention was DANGAL. And for almost a decade there are not many big budget simple drama films that can pull audiences to the big screen. The closest we got was a mediocre ROCKY AUR RANI KI PREM KAHANI.
I just think that this all can change with DUNKI.
Because no matter how much you enjoy slow motion shots combined with pulse pounding music. A simple drama film will always be remembered.
