Few moths ago i raised a Meta request,to delete the because its not feeling important that time. Every question that time consist of tag and tag regarding bollywood film questions. But my request got misinterpreted and tag made synonym of tag. Which is inappropriate. Bollywood is part of Indian movies. Indian film industry consist of many regional film industries like Tollywood etc. too.

So in my opinion should be a head tag and as its synonym . Even should be the synonym of too. So by clicking on tag we will not get question which are not related but when we click on tag we will get all result of Bollywood,tollywood etc.

They can be kept separate too but making synonmym of is wrong.

It may sound similar to indian-movies and bollywood should not be Tag Synonyms.

    I'm half tempted to get rid of all the *wood tags to begin with. I don't see much purpose unless a question is directly asking about practices in that market.

1 Answer 1


Disclaimer: No movie fan. No movie information, except a few movies.

The tag for Indian movies is a kind of information for non-Indians regarding the the content of a question involving an Indian movie. On the other hand, information regarding a movie's actual place in Indian cinema with regards to its place of origin and language requires separate tags, not only for foreigners but for Indians too. For example, I am a north Indian and I cannot possibly differentiate between Telugu or Tamil movies, and ditto for Bengali/Odissi movies. I am sure people from other parts of the nation would have problems differentiating Punjabi and Harayanvi movies.

I think what Ankit wants to say is that all Bollywood, Tollywood, Bhojpuri, Punjabi etc. industries are a part of what we might refer to as Indian Movies, but not the other way around.

For example, Carry on Jatta is a Punjabi movie, and any question involving it can be tagged under Punjabi and Indian-Movies. But since it is not a Bollywood movie, a question involving it should not be tagged under Bollywood.
