DC Cardioversion a Clarification
  • On the one hand, the medical community works hard day-n-night to keep people
    alive/healthy. On the other hand, jokers from kolly wood and bolly wood give
    ideas to the numerous idiots of our country.

  • Hi,

    Well we are all happy to see any venture being successfull, please
    look into the flip side....we are progressing into an age of
    advanced scientific growth - we are no longer in the india of old -
    wherein the only form of entertainment for the poor was the annual
    mgr/shivaji films - the overdependance and at times mad following
    has led to the overall degradation of the society. the masses still
    think all it takes for one to be successful is to marry a rich girl
    or sing a song....end of which our hero turns from a lungi clad
    youth into an industrial doyen...sings a few numbers in choice
    overseas locations - will post a series of stuff on this..

    agree that we dont want to be fed on the award film types - but lets
    get some semblance of reality in our films. we still have snakes
    drinking milk, shoe coming off hitting the villain and coming back
    and tying laces up by itself...

    if only our population is mature enough to just look at it for its
    entertainment value and move on with life, instead of immersing
    themselves into the world of make believe.... go to any beach over
    the weekend - you see hordes of these road side romeos - with the
    flick of the hair, cigarettes etc etc...dont blame them either -
    look the quality of education they are provided - text books that
    are grossly outdated, theory classes by bored teachers, labs which
    still teach elimentary grade experiments - that make the kids feel
    that nothing is lost by cutting a few classes and going to watch
    thalaivar spin his cigarette....who is to blame.

    The continuing success of such films lead to another generation of
    similar spin offs - where people let go of reality. while its good
    to have your 3 hours of fun - our population unfortunately glorifies
    and apes these ` heroes' - giving them at times godly status. We
    have already seen the damage that this can do, interms of politics -

    politics is not about populism, cinema is

    politics is about governance - a thing tht shankar has tried to
    repeatedly portray( and quite successfuly - atleast financially -for
    him) unfortunately, this is lost amoung the various antics of the

    21/2 hours of plain stupid stuff with 10 min or moral advise isnt
    going to change the masses.

    Its more to do with our own escapist attitude -we tend to want to
    forget reality - be lost in the dreamy world of cinema - like a dose
    of morphine which hides the pain but is no cure..by the time these
    kids wake up, they are already crossed the bridge and the bulk of
    them end up dissillusioned in life.

    there has to be a clarion call to actively encourage the revamp of
    our educational system and get kids involved in more real/active

    apologise if anyone's feelings are unintentionally offended.

  • what you learn from indian films...

    Every villian will have a palatial house. The house should have a
    wooden staircase inside the house.

    Atleast one of a pair of identical twins is born evil. Hospitals
    don’t know how to safely keep twins - they will always be misplaced.

    The first job a hero gets is pulling carts and lifting rice sacks.
    If the hero is shown working in his young age - he will wash glasses
    in a eatery. His mother will wash utensils in a rich home.

    It does not matter if you are heavily outnumbered in a fight
    involving martial arts: your enemies will wait patiently to attack
    you one by one by dancing around in a threatening manner until you
    have knocked out their predecessors.

    If the hero has a sister she will be raped. If he has a loving
    father or mother they will be killed.Honest and hard working
    policemen if related to the hero will be killed half way into the

    The bad guys die instantly when shot,the good guys/gals get 5 min to
    finish their dialogue - get promises for their lost wishes, join
    lovers etc etc

    The hero can bleed only from the corner of his lips irrespective of
    where he is hit. All other good characters will be hit on the head
    and the hospital will bandage it with the blood showing. They will
    also be put on a ventilator and given blood transfusion.

    If you are the hero or heroine and become a policeman or IAS /
    collector etc - your first posting will be in your hometown.

    If you are the hero and start a business, just sing a song, by the
    time the song is over you will become a millioner.

    All beds have special L-shaped cover sheets that reach the armpit
    level on a woman but only to waist level on the man lying beside her

    The hero will always use a red public telephone booth to make calls
    ( have you ever seen one in india?)

    The hero or villian will just come out of the airport - but will
    have a whole assortment of arms incl a revolver, a knife on his
    person. Whatever happened to airline security..

    No bullet can hit the hero - unless aimed at the arm or leg. He can
    dodge 10 AK47 blazing away by a simple somersault.

    If you are the hero the villain instead of gunning you down will
    use complicated machinery involving fuses, pulley systems, deadly
    gasses, lasers, and man-eating sharks, which will allow the hero at
    least 20 minutes to escape.

    Any grenades thrown at the hero will hit the vehicle next to it or
    land in a pit of red sand and blow up. However the hero can even
    backhand or deflect a grenade perfect to it target.

    All villans will chase the hero in sumo trucks. The first one will
    carry the villian and all other trucks will blow straight up into
    the sky. Other villains will chase the hero in royal enfield
    bullets. Two of these bullets will be launched straight throw a pile
    of hay or into a river. A car will careen off a bullock cart and
    fall/slide on it top in a busy road.

    The hero will know how handle any vehicle ( aero plane/helicopter
    incl) even though as per the story line he is a village bumpkin.

    Once applied, lipstick will never rub off -- even while underwater.

    You're very likely to survive any battle in any war unless you make
    the mistake of showing someone a picture of your sweetheart back

    A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating, but
    will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.

    If a large pane of glass is visible, someone will be thrown through
    it before long. Similar carts loaded with fruits/vegetales/bangles.
    Tea shops with brass boilers and drums have a propensity to attract
    flying sidekicks.

    If staying in a haunted house, women should investigate any strange
    noises in their most revealing underwear.

    All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red
    readouts so you know exactly when they're going to go off. Should
    you decide to defuse a bomb, don't worry which wire to cut. You will
    always choose the right one.

    If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you meet will
    know all the steps.

    Herioines should wear white sarees while dancing and it should rain
    atleast for half the song.

    All characters - politicians/army men/police even in kashmir can
    speak and understand tamil.
  • well listed Vijay.
    A simple question:
    1. why do you think the cine directors are still giving
    the same treatment to the films they take??
  • they make what sells - as simple as that.

    and its sells for want of better entertainment...

    look at it this way - all heroes in films are good, while the
    heroines (mostly) start with high inflated egos, dont know 'indian
    culture' and the hero gives a lengthy discourse of how to be ' tamil
    (intentional l) ponnu' and she goes through an instant change of

    whereas the tele serials are all heroine oriented and the guys are
    portrayed as womanisers, alcoholics etc...

    depends on the audience, the movies are mostly watched by college
    kids bunking classes, whereas the mega serials by the woman folk...

    both of them are being wasted - an enormous talent going down the
    drain...for heavens sake give them something good to do, and am sure
    these movies and serials will not run anymore...

  • Why do you judge any film, whether Indian or foreign? You must shut your
    logical, analytical and judgmental faculties and let go. Then only you
    can enter the world of fantasy projected before you. I am sure, Rajni
    type cinemas give a few hours of ecstasy to the viewers, non-fans
    included. Star wars, Matrix, Kingkong and the like do the same.

  • Dear Muruganandam
    That was not an analysis about Thaialaivar padam....it was to the 1000 members of this forum as a clarification because no one knows when any one will make the mistake of a suicidal tendency...
    As a matter of interest how many of the laearned and educated members of this agroup knew about CPR and DC cardioversion??

    Vijay...rightly said we go to forget our mundane day to day problems to chill out...so we love spiderman,the pirates and the boss....

    but Munnabhai has taught people more about gandiyan values than documentries....atleast shankar attempts his entertainers with a social message....

    whatever said and then in UK its no 9 and the maximum average grosser....

Howdy, Stranger!
