For the Love of Cinema

Loved Readers!

Ideally, a memoir shouldn’t be just a list of things. But experiences.

Here goes a little something. Its our very first post in this section and we would like to think of this as a trial post. Hark, we will absolutely be delighted to receive posts from you Please click the submission link above for more!

This is a conversation I overheard at a Colaba café.

Here it goes!

The lady in kurti and jhola bag :  Thank You ? Thank you , Love. Thank you, Cinema. The two greatest teachers I’ve ever had. As much as I love Malpoa and Taaler Bora( that very heavy Bengali accent), I realise I need more atheists/rationales as friends. Cinema made me grow up and see beyond all that is home. Cinema beyond borders! Always!

The Italian (by them glasses, and mostly by the accent) :  I don’t know much about Indian cinema, but American and most of the western cinema is brainwashing. Look at the latest best example: the sniper. this type is a criminal and the cinema made him a hero; no wonder that these dumb brainwashed fascist Americans have a Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton running for president; is the Indian cinema like that?

The same lady : Mainstream Bollywood is pretty silly. There is some effort to create good cinema in the independent and regional cinema sectors.

 

Here, we open up the post to comments. Tell us where you stand on the war between the winning statistics of the 100 crores in Bollywood and the alternative intelligentsia. Also, do you, if at all, locate a line between the intellectual currents and the pseudointellectual ones? Because if Cinema is an industry too, does it not require to sell to fetch returns?
