the way i see it - films from hollywood, bollywood and lollywood, are all here 4 entertainment. they do not, for the most part, reflect our culture. they stricly entertain and evoke emtions from the audience.
lollywood specifically, doesn't reflect our culture. if anything, it does the complete opposite. it distorts our culture.
the pakistani way of life does not include men/women singing and dancing in a park or a village! it does not include men going around shooting their enemies at will, without punishment. it does not include women walking around half naked, and so on. yet, most lollywood movies depict the above, therefore distorting pakistani culture, in my opinion.
the only aspect of pakistani films that depict a real-life problem, not only for our culture, but others as well, is gender representation. males are more often than not, shown as the main character. other than that, plot line, script, cinematogrophy etc. in lollywood films, do not depict the pakistani way of life.
finally, in comparison to new films, older movies - although they were much more respectable/worthwhile - also simply entertained. rarely if ever, did they reflect pakistani culture. again....they distorted it, if anything.
hope that helps!
bombay_times yaar.....lollywood is based out of lahore pakistan. it has been around for a LONG time, but was given its name within the last 10-20 years (i think). if u think LOLLYwood's a funny name, you must have been rolling on the floor when u heard of BOLLYwood.
btw, it was for history and heritage...i m an art student and we have this theory subject H & H which is infact quite interesting n informative!
