Commercial cinema has all the ingredients to satisfy all sections of audience. Fights, handsome hero and heroine, item song, duets, dream sequences and what not. Shyam Benegal calls them children`s movies because most sequences are make belief ones. A hero fights 50 goons successfully and vamps follow him trying to seduce him. A villain and his gang wants to annihilate him but alas he is always triumphant. He can kill anybody and law never bothers him. All these things never happen in real life and most of audience enjoys fantasy like children. On the other hand Parallel cinema takes up a problem in the society and never bothers to satisfy all the sections of audience and presents theme in a sober way and limited audience likes to see it.

I think Parallel cinema refers to the art movies where the content is of utmost importance whereas commercial movies focus on song and dance. Commercial cinemas are comparatively light because their soul purpose is to provide entertainment.
