We are already halfway into 2022, but only a few films have managed to succeed at the box office. It’s interesting to note that the South’s film industry completely dominated at this time. In 2022, Bollywood has actually fallen to new lows. The Hindi cinema industry is now working on a variety of significant projects, including Shamsheera, Brahmastra, Laal Singh Chadda, and Vikram Vedha, but the pressure is really on the B-Town.
The South, on the other hand, enjoyed an incredible run over the past six months thanks to classic blockbusters like RRR, KGF-2, and Vikram. The stories of midrange and offbeat films of the south resemble the disastrous run of Bollywood. Even in the southern film industry, smaller films struggle to find an audience.
