There are many ways to attract people to watch your movies. For Bollywood filmmakers, game is one of them.
Bollywood Movies and Games
With millions of people have access to smartphones, tablets, laptops, and PC, it is easier to reach your audience by asking them to play a game based on your movie. If you’re skillful enough to make the game interesting, lots of people will be certainly interested in watching the true movie.
Making the games
Basically, making games based on movies is quite similar with other games. The only challenge is to make sure the game runs the same story as the movie or your players will think it weird. Storyline is important because it keeps the game on its path. It is similar to a rule that keeps everything in our life on track, even over something people think involves only intuition, like betting on M88. And here they are. Some popular Bollywood movies that turned into video games.
Sidharth Malhotra and Akshay Kumar’s movie, Brothers, inspired developers to create a game based on the movie: Brothers: Clash of Fighters. This game requires a player to fight either with another player or the game. The game characters are built with 3D and based on the actual characters from the movie.
Ra.One was launched in September 2011, a month before the real movie released in the same year. The developers partnered with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe to develop the game on PS2 and PS3 platform.
Krrish was a game dedicated for mobile platform users. The game was launched following a huge commercial success of the original movie, the first one of its kind which gives India its masked superhero.

Ghajini holds the record for being the first movie made into a PC 3D game. The game was developed by Gheetha Arts and FXLabs, while the marketing is done under Eros International. The project itself involves many developers to ensure all the game characters and objects are made as smooth as possible. Some even believe that this game has finally changed India’s gaming industry. Not many 3D games are made during this era and only few are good. That’s why when Ghajini was first released with stunning graphics and great storyline, people began to think that there is still future for India gaming industry.
