We’re finally lucky enough to witness a phase where Hindi Cinema does not comprise of only mainstream Bollywood ‘masala’ films with a somewhat tackily similar story-line each time. With a large number of directors and producers today wanting to experiment and make more ‘real’ cinema, there seems to be an evident rise in off-beat Hindi cinema which is obviously for the good. With a crop of amazing contemporary films like Gangs of Wasseypur, Peepli Live, Udaan having released recently, there are a number of mainstream actors and directors thinking out of the box.
These are thought provoking films that win a lot of critical acclaim but when it comes to overall viewership, they are unable to compete with typical Bollywood blockbusters. It is high time we rise above the present ‘Superhits’ to bridge the gap and come up with more movies that boast of quality.

Miss Lovely, an off-beat film directed by Ashim Ahluwalia is set in the lower depths of Bombay’s “C” grade film industry. It follows the devastating story of two brothers who produce sex horror films in the mid – 1980s. A sordid tale of betrayal and doomed love, the film dives into the lower depths of the Bollywood underground, an audacious cinema with baroque cinemascope compositions, lurid art direction, wild background soundtracks, and gut-wrenching melodrama. Miss Lovely is scheduled for commercial release on 17 January 2014.
