There was a time when people merely looked movies as a source of entertainment. Commercial movies were always on high and were more successful. People watched movies and forgot them. But, today the youth have become more advanced. They appreciate arts in all the forms. More and more non-commercial movies are being released. The content oriented movies are being preferred by the audiences. The way cinema was perceived a decade ago is no longer the same it is today.
