Movies produced by renowned Production Companies with illuminating star cast and most expert Director script writer and music composer .... which does a fabulous business is termed as an A grade movie.....for example SHOLAY.....

(Most important is the fact - An A grade movie should not be confused with an A certified movie i.e. which is an ADULT movie.....)

B grade movies on the other hand are movies with low budget average star cast and crew .... doing average business....

Although there are many differing opinions as to what a b-movie actually is, there is only one real technical definition to the term. The actual technical definition is that a b-movie was the second movie on a double bill. It was typically a low budget formula type film, which fell somewhere in the suspense, horror, sci-fi, western, exploitation or gangster genres, although there were other genres covered as well.

This definition later gave way to the wider definition of b-movie, which basically encompassed any low budget film. Now I personally have a problem with this definition, because as a classic film reviewer, I've reviewed a wide variety of classic b-movies that taken as a whole, have a feel that truly sets them apart as an all encompassing genre unto themselves.

So what exactly is a b-movie? Well if you've ever seen one of those cheesy sci-fi movies from the 50's, or seen a goofy old monster movie where the monster looks like something out of a Sid and Marty Krofft Satu ...more

An "A" grade movie or picture is the one that has all of the production values the public comes to see with expectation of popular actors and actresses, lavish costumes, wonderful set, good musical background, good photography, and a clear concise script with good dialogue and a great climax. It is not hard to get the public to attend an A grade movie, and all an exhibitor needed to go with an A grade movie is good marketing , advertisement , follow up and promotions and of course the requisite previews of coming attractions. The only trouble with A grade movies is the budget which is normally very high. B grade movies are genarally low on budget , marketing and new or non saleable stars. buts ometimes such movies also become sleeper hits , such as kya cool hain hum , style , and many ram gopal and mahesh bhatt movies/

An "A" picture was one that had all of the production values the public had come to expect: popular actors and actresses, lavish costumes, wonderful set, good musical background, good photography, and a clear concise script with good dialog and a happy ending. It wasn't hard to get the public to attend an A film, and all an exhibitor needed to go with an A movie was a cartoon, any short subject one reel film, a newsreel, and of course the requisite previews of coming attractions. The only trouble with A pictures was they were expensive to make, tied up movie stars for weeks longer than the B pictures, and most studios only made a certain number of A pictures a year.

B pictures featured actors who either weren't quite as popular as they once had been or actors the studio hoped would become stars, were shot in a hurry, had scripts by second-rate writers, used whatever costumes and sets were left over from previous productions, and didn't cost all that much to make. Unfortunately, it w ...more
