The numbers of cinema enthusiast in India depict the highest proportion (8 million) in action film. Whereas Japan, Ireland and New Zealand slightly have a steady rise up to 7.1 to 7.6 respectively. On the contrary, romance films become the next popular genre wherein it escalated up to 7.5 for Indians while other countries shared solely 3.8 to 4.5. However, India still maintains its place as the number one viewer for comedy cinema films with 6.5 wherein New Zealand illustrates the lowest.

Not bad for a band 5-5.5
by: Dr. Mohammad Shaker

First of all, you should mention what score do you need in order to determine what work you ought to do. In my view, keeping in mind I'm not an IELTS Tutor but I've just passed it with my required score, your main mistakes pertain mainly to word choice and grammatical errors.
1- It is simply a table not a chart.
2- Elucidates: It means to clarify but the table simply compares/shows.
3- Information about not on.
4- Cinemagoers or film viewers /audience.
5- different is better than various.
6- ,and comes once before the last noun.
7- You should pick the major differences for the overview.
some more changes are needed but don't want to suppress you :)

IELTS Table: Cinema Viewing Figures For Films
by: IELTS buddy

Thanks Mohammed. The band score and comments seem fair.

You do have a fair few errors with your language so you need to go through some of the model answers on this site and lessons and do some revisions on this.

Also, you are using the language of change in this graph. This graph is NOT over time, so you should not use that.

If you look through the Task 1 Lessons you will see some things about that, and it is also explained in the IELTS buddy writing eBook.

Thanks and good luck
