#ChennaiExpress And Hindi Film Industry

success of films like ‪#‎ChennaiExpress‬ suggests we’d like to be in a constant state of cultural diarrhoea.
Here’s a suggestion to all those who do have a fondness for good cinema but can’t seem to resist their guilty pleasure movies — try treating the next blockbuster release like it’s an indie film.

Expect actors to act, instead of allowing a leading man to play the the same role he’s played repeatedly for decades.

Watch the trailers, read the articles written about it and ask yourselves why you want to watch that movie. Judge a film by the story that unfolds on a big screen.

Be entertained by intelligent plot twists and don’t get manipulated by gimmicks. Basically, try not to approach Bollywood with the mental and emotional constitution of a teaspoon.
