Odia Films Industry known as Ollywood is almost 80 years old Industry Starting from Sita Bibaha (year 1936) which is the first Odia film in the History of Odisha. The industry hard glorious years in the past.
I had been a follower of Odia films since a long time, there was a time when we had only 1-2 movies being released in a year. And now the number has reached to almost 30-40 movies a year.
And here goes the saddest part of the story – The Glorious past is gone. People often say present day movies has lost all its charm.
Here are a couple of reasons why I don’t watch Odia films any more. (Browse through the pages)
1. Originality is not our thing any more.
You call it copied or you call it inspired from, they both sounds the same to me. Most of the Ollywood movies these days are inspired from South Movies. Where is the Originality? Sometimes even getting inspired looks as a photocopy of the source.
2. Item Song is a Must.
Almost every Odia film these days will have an Item song. Why is it so much required?
