Hindi movies are more diverse in terms of genres, characters and themes, according to a new report.
A new report by the Hindi film analytics company IndiaSpend reveals that a majority of Hindi films are in the category of horror or suspense.
But it also shows that some genres are in decline.
A total of 26.7% of all Hindi films released in 2016 had horror, up from 22.9% in 2015.
The genre also saw a dramatic decline over the past three years.
Only 18.6% of the movies released in 2017 were horror, down from 22% in 2016.
Meanwhile, a mere 2.7%.
of all movies released last year were horror or thriller, up by just 1.3% from 2015.
It is unclear how many of those movies were made for Hindi audiences, given that most Hindi movies don’t get a theatrical release in the country.
The most popular genres are romance, drama, romance-themed movies, crime dramas, romance movies, family, comedy and romantic comedies.
A little over one third of all films released last fall had horror or thrillers.
A lot of these genres were also trending downwards.
Romantic comedies, which have been popular in Hindi cinema since the 1970s, saw a decline from 25% to 14% of films released this year.
The decline of romance movies is also a concern, given the rise of horror in recent years.
The most popular genre of horror movies in 2016 was a comedy called Jeebab Hai.
The film made a total of 1.6 billion rupees ($150 million) in India and generated more than $1 billion in revenue.
But the horror genre’s share of the pie declined from 8.2% in the previous year to 5.9%.
The report also shows a dramatic decrease in horror movies over the years, with only 19% of horror films released during 2016.
The number of horror movie lovers in India has declined from 4.2 million in 2015 to about 2 million in 2017.
The report notes that the trend towards more violent, realistic and emotional films has been a trend for decades.
According to IndiaSpill, more than 85% of movies released by the top ten Indian film companies this year are based on the genre of action-adventure film.
