Earlier, people used to listen to Punjabi songs and watch tv series to entertain themselves. But due to the introduction of new artists, the entire picture of Punjabi cinema has changed.

Dominance of Comedy Films
In the Punjabi cinema, comedy films have always received a strong response than the other genre of films. It is the popular comedy actors namely, Binnu Dhillon, Jaswinder Bhalla, B.N Sharma and Karamjit Anmol who have done a great job in the progress of this industry. One can compare the performance of any Punjabi comedy film with that of another category of films to take note of this.

Contribution of Multiplex Culture
Multiplex culture has contributed a lot to make the Punjabi films popular among the audience. This has helped to increase the exposure of the Punjabi cinema all over the world and played a crucial role in boosting the box office collection of movies. It is the only reason why the makers are thinking about releasing the Punjabi movies in the dubbed versions to make more profit as well as spread the popularity of these films all over India.
Boost Due to Satellite Rights
In the earlier times, there were no earnings from the satellite rights as not many channels used to buy the Punjabi films due to the poor response of the audience. Nowadays, the situation is different and a lot of popular channels are accepting the films due to their popularity. This, in turn, has contributed to raising the earning of the films.
Moving on the track of Hindi Cinema
Most of the Punjabi filmmakers are considering the Hindi films as their models and making films similar to them. Also, many Hindi films do not release in the overseas countries. So, this has given the Punjabi films an opportunity to earn well outside India and hence they have become popular.
These are some of the changes which Punjabi film industry have gone through over the years and made a huge progress in the theatres. The kind of pace with which the Punjabi cinema is making progress is excellent. And it would take it to a new level in the coming few years.
