The other day, there was a chat show on an Indian TV channel and a famous actor cum producer and the hero of the film were trying to defend the film which is said to be full of abusive language. The film has A certificate and it is meant for the adult viewers but the logic given by the producer was ridiculous.
The anchor said to him, “Do you want our children to learn abusive language?”
The producer said, “This film is not for children.”
The anchor fired back, “But you confess that the dialogue is full of abuses and dirty words?”
The producer said, “There are hundreds of films produced every year and murder and rape scenes are shown in many of them. They don’t get A certificate and children can watch them. I would rather tell my children to learn abuses than learn to kill people or rape girls.”
The ignorant audiences present in the hall applauded the answer, without even trying to understand that the answer is fallacious.
Is there no other way to earn money, Mr. Producer because you have tried to defend yourself very foolishly? I am really depressed by the mental level of the producer. Not that he has not produced remarkable films; he has given some of the best movies ever seen by the Hindi cinema audiences. Saying that you would teach your children abuses so that they would not learn how to murder someone is really foolish.
What is happening to this generation? Majority of the youths are following short term utilities and learning them through different forms of media but they forget that the real genius and the gems are always produced by the people who have some definite kind of dignity and moral sense. In any age, in any time, a handful of good people, ultimately, become the source of inspiration and change the society for better but such producers who say that the reason behind producing this film is that young people use such language in modern schools, colleges, and on jobs.
We used to carry the memories of good films for years but nowadays it does not last even for a week. The reason is quite obvious: in the name of change and changing lifestyle every sort of rubbish is being thrown in front of audiences who are highly susceptible and can’t tell right from wrong.
The above mentioned producer is famous Indian film actor Mr. Amir Khan.
