Lessons that Hindi Movies teach….
First it was Amir Khan’s “Taarey Zameen Par” which dealt with the disease called “Dyslexia” and soon people became aware of this disease and its implications etc.
Now,it is AB’s and Abby Baby’s ” Paa” that focuses on a disease named ” Progeria” and everyone seems to be learning about the specifics of this peculiar disease now.
Yes, certainly our Hindi films are educating our masses.
I feel some one should now come out with a movie titled say “Three Swine” (Like “3 Idiots” ) or “H1N1-enza” to drive home the point about dealing with swine flu.
Another film maker should register a title called say ” Chick-Mug-Lure ” to advocate the danger of Chicken Flu or Bird Flu.
That day is not far off when Hindi film makers may come out with a film titled say ” 21st Century Girl ” discussing another familiar disease called :” Gonorrhea ” !
Don’t ask me what it means. Look for the meaning in the Thesaurus!
And we say our Hindi films are not educative!
They certainly teach us about diseases like those discussed above!
