Why Student Films Can't Be Too Real

Bollywood has made multiple films about student life in college and school. What makes them fascinating is their dramatic plots with characters who are more often than not, larger than life. Even 3 Idiots, one of the more real films features overlaps of characters who probably would not meet in real life (Rancho and Priya). But, the issue is, these films cannot be too real. Not because Bollywood is too glamorous but because, films in general cannot be too real. If it becomes as real as our lives, would we pay to watch it? No we would not. No one wants to watch a film which is more or less a depiction of their own life. We all want stories which surprise us or give us a new perspective on a matter we are familiar with. What are your thoughts?
