Movies.It's a hobby for some,past time for many,an occupation for some.
I watch movies to expand my lit knowledge.Weird?Not really.You'd be surprised at the knowledge a good movie can actually give you.In recent times,however,Indian cinema has degraded considerably.This is quite sad for the movie lovers.The main issue is the lack of originality.You'll see a xerox copy of  a south movie or an english movie copied just the way it is with little or no changes.When there's no creativity,there's no fun.Another sad phenomenon is the mindless,mind you,absolutely MINDLESS comedies(or so the producers/directors) like to call them,when there's nothing funny at all.It's absolutely boring,watching real old actors posing to be as young as possible(that's another phenomenon but we'll get there later) with perverted jokes and romancing the real young new actresses.The jokes are unfunny,crude and mindless.Besides,the multiplex rates are so high..it'll make you think twice before watching any movie.Now seriously,would you watch a movie like Thank you or Rascals in a posh multiplex spending 200 bucks per ticket?I would not even watch these dumb movies for free.

What really surprises me is the absolute determination with which these guys make such movies.I mean,when I recently saw these actors actually promoting these deranged movies,it made me feel sick.Do these movies really work?I don't believe the box office rates either.There are atleast 10 such fuckall movies every year.Made by well established banners most of the times.I recently viewed Mausam in theater.Total rip off.I felt so damn cheated and cursed Pankaj Kapoor throughout the film.What's with these people?Don't they really THINK????I dont blame Shahid Kapoor.I mean,that guy tried hard enough.He does look smashing in that air force outfit..but dude..Sonam needs to watch it.I can't understand why does the media compare her to Deepika,who's let's face it,hot enough to survive.Plus she's got some talent.Sonam is way too pathetic.The next sad movie I've watched was like,5 years back ago.kabhi alvida naa kehna.The movie was seriously the saddest of the sad.Dazzling urban sattire of the falling marriage theme?You've got to be kidding me.The movie got my entire family in a bad mood.And we couldn't even talk with each other for sometime.

I'm not saying all movies are bad.I loved Chak De India.The movie even dealt with feminism.3 Idoits was decent too.But one can't deny that the standard of movies is falling down.
I see Ra.one getting promoted like crazy right now.But I'm gonna wait for the reviews.


  1. Hiii! :)

    Hell I totally relate to this.
    A good movie can really teach you a lot! If not Literature, then definitely something else like good direction or acting! (Depending on the interest, of course!)

    Ra. One flopped, big time! I'm sure you heard! :P
    So much for the 150 crores! :/

  2. Oh yes..I heard :P lol..
