We all have been watching a Hilarious show for a while called: - ‘I’m a Politician- And I will blabber!’
A show which receives maximum TRPs, comments and fan followings! It’s a show which will give superstars and businessmen a run for their money! (Literally!)
I know... there is no such show. But the news channels all around are making their bucks on the name of politicians and not entertainment for a change! (Something which they should be doing otherwise)
But the issues these politicians are arguing on are just appalling! Sometimes we wonder what we are governed by! Is this really happening????
When (my superstar) Shahrukh Khan made a comment about his cricket team and the Pakistani players, the politicians were agitated! And now, all we see is a Mess! A Laugh riot for the educated class; who comes home from work switches on a news channel (hoping to get some intelligent view point on serious issues) and witnesses a foul play of political heads blabbering/ fighting/ pointing fingers at one another!
GOD… is this our country?
A so called Marathi Manoos will have his view about how wrong everyone is and how the point actually lies in why Marathi is not being given importance!!!! A non-mumbai-ite will be ANGRY because his so called INDIANness is being questioned!!! A Producer is worried about his film release and still wonders why that has been targeted!!!
And the racket in our head continues….
The good thing is that I too have a medium to express my thoughts/views… so I typed a comment on a social networking site and received a thousand odd responses!!! It was a good way to get to know what we actually feel/think about the current scenario, also realizing, if ‘we’ can divert from one topic to another in no time… WHY blame anyone else!!!!
So here it goes… My status message was:- SRK, DON’T APOLOGIZE! WE ARE WITH YOU!
Friend1:- Ohh that means, You think Pakistani Players should play here...?
I AM AN SRK FAN...n i want to watch the film!!!!!!!!
Friend2:- ohhh...the film u can watch on any channel...
Friend1:- Now a Days, films are released on channels and DVDs in just 2 months!
Me:- HUHHHH....piracyyy??? a complete no!!!
Friend2:- That's the point... Media has created a whirlpool of thoughts so that the people get influenced! A theatre today has a dozen policemen, 3 rows reserved, 1 Dozen police? Minimum 3 videographers?
This is Nonsense....
aani evadh karun, film baghayala jaeel, tyala dagad laganar to vegalach...
Me:- we owe somethin to every film... WE cant be casual about... DVD/channel var yeil!!!! lets be clear...change our attitude..its a lot of energy, creativity,money,business involved fr a Friday release!!
lets not think like THEM!
Friend 2:- I don't have any attitude...
But this is a Fact...
In my nearest Theatre, Marathi films timings are 3:30pm..
How many people are going to watch on working day @ 3:30pm ? aani aapan nachato, ki Marathila chanagale divas aal... Marathi cinema multyplex madhye lagala?
Last week, I saw " Natarang " (twice) on both the tickets, It was mentioned TAX FREE...
at 3:30 pm ticket was Rs 79/- & @ Night, Ticket was Rs 117/- WHY ?
This make attitude to watch the film at Home...
Me:- Lets not get into petty issues like language and caste!!! the fact remains...we need to grow up!
Friend3:-ok, forget about the petty issues...
I watch films in Theaters (when It runs @ a suitable time)
Otherwise I have to watch the film on DVD...
Me:- and as far as the marathi film screenings in multiplexes are concerned!!! we r gettin thr... i saw Natrang at PVR- 8:30pm show @ Rs 175/- .... its about how many of us are actually gonna pay 'money' to watch a film... its easier fr our ppl to think... arrre TV var baghu!!!
then how is anything going to progress!!!!
Friend2:- " TV var baghu " attitude comes from Middle Class Marathi Manus.., who can't spend Rs. 175 /-
Me:- oh really...but he does spend 175/- fr a hindi film!!!!!!!
Friend:- not even a Middle Class Marathi man...
His attitude will be same for hindi also... " TV var baghu "
Me:- ....i think its more about... Marathi film theatre madhe jaun ka baghaichi!!!so the problem lies in that comman's mind! and films r made fr them...
anyway.. The point is will i get to watch My name is Khan...!!!!!!!!!!!(appeal frm a true SRK fan)
This continued for a while… and I realized!!! What are we arguing about!!! Again… these were petty issues! We were back to talking about languages/caste/creed… How will India ever progress! We definitely need to change our attitude!!!
Unless we become ‘ONE’ this change won’t happen!!!
And the thought scared me…
Because… I know ‘That’ may just never happen!!!!
