Movie Sequels: Blessing or Burden for the Entertainment Industry – The Pollywood Perspective

Films have always had a special connection with everyone of all ages. They have a way of porting you to a different world, a different dimension, and making you believe that you can have a world that’s larger than life itself. Since the inception of films in India, we have seen a lot of trends in the industry, like remakes of Hollywood movies, translating them to a more Indianized version, or if a film has seen huge success, and the audience wants to see a remake, then the writers, directors, and producers must give what the audience wants. One must remember the obvious fact that the audience is the one who can make or break the fortune of the film.

In a time where sequels can be a miss or a hit, be it in Hollywood, Bollywood, Pollywood, Tollywood, Mollywood, or any other regional film sector, some projects have done excessively well with the audience and at the box office. A recent example can be seen in Gadar 2, where the total box office collection was more than 514 crores and still counting, proving that the movie gives giving nostalgic feel, for which the audience is coming to theatres still. Another example is that of Oh My God 2, which also saw a huge success amongst the audience garnering a total of 130 crore in toto. Furthermore, the revelation of Don 3, where Ranveer Singh is set to step into the shoes of Shah Rukh Khan as the iconic anti-hero, has ignited a whirlwind of excitement among fans.

In Pollywood, we have seen a huge success through sequels as well that have raised the bar of the industry. We have had movies like Jatt and Juliet 2, Qismat 2, Nikka Zaildar 2, Manje Bistre 2, and many more which have done well with the audience. Carry on Jatta 3, the threequel created history by becoming the first Punjabi movie to cross 100 crores. This goes on to show that even sequels have the capacity to become a grand success. Good news for the audience is that Jatt and Juliet 3 is also being released soon and one can’t wait for the results.

For all those who haven’t watched ‘Carry on Jatta 3’, the movie is currently streaming on OTT platform Chaupal. This movie is not just loved by the native-speaking masses, but also loved by people who don’t speak the language but want to watch it solely for its comic element. Like Punjabi music, which is heard despite the language barrier but solely for its beats and drops.

Sandeep Bansal, Founder of Chaupal remarked that “Deciding on a sequel is like picking a piece of art. Just because the first movie did well, doesn’t mean the next one will too. Series create a recognizable name that helps with advertising, but the key is still making a great movie, and the makers of any film should adhere to this formula, to make the movie a success.” Chaupal is a one-stop destination for all your latest and popular web series and films in three languages Punjabi, Haryanvi, and Bhojpuri.
