Mainstream or commercial movies are created for the purpose of entertainment and profit generation. The big-budget mainstream theatres allow people to sit back, relax, and enjoy themselves after a hectic day of work. They are usually non-meaty, light-hearted, and have the sole purpose of entertaining the masses. These films cater to the needs of a wider audience and generally revolve around the themes of romance, comedy, romantic-comedy, and action. They are not focused on making the audience think deeply about issues or emotions, but rather on taking their minds off worldly stress.
