We often complain saying that our movies have not yet reached the standards of world cinema yet. But how open-minded are we in accepting different types of movies, perhaps with more complex themes?
An undeniable fact in any field of entertainment is that, makers will always produce their form of art to please their audiences. So ultimately, what we ask for is what we get, be it cinema or any other art form.
Heard of people talk about the 'pulse of audiences'? Sounds familiar right? Yes, It is the audience who decide what they want to watch.
There is nothing wrong in enjoying the same old 'masala' flicks, as long as they keep us entertained. Having said that, if we decide to enhance the quality and complexity of our movies, we need to appreciate such films.
Suriya's 24 for example, suffered a nosedive in its third week at the box office. Now, unless we accept and appreciate films like those, we lose our right to compare our movies with that of world cinema.
So next time, when our film-makers fail to produce movies that match up to the standards of world cinema, we know who to blame.
