Tyler Perry’s films compared to… Bollywood!!!

I ALMOST couldn’t believe the comparison (see below) when I read it!   

From March 31, 2008 issue of Time magazine (written by Richard Corliss):

“That format [domestic melodrama] which fed decades of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford weepies, still raises its head occasionally- in the HBO series Big Love or Broadway’s August: Osage County.  And it’s soapy, singing center of most Bollywood films.” 

Hmmm… After a while, it started to make sense!  I’ve seen one of Tyler Perry’s plays (on You Tube) and the family drama/rom com Daddy’s Little Girls (I liked it a LOT).
