Went to watch Munnabhi today!!! Awesome movie !! Really above par… The movie has no comparison with any movie released in recent times. A sequel about which i can say that it is better than the prequel.. The review of the movie ends here … Now i would like to present a few thoughts which came to my mind after watching the movie…
First of all i would like to discuss about Gandhigiri…Even after watching this movie..i would say in front of everybody that i am not a great fan of the ideologies of Mahatma Gandhi. Agreed he was a brave man and did much for the country even sacrificed his life for the cause of the country..I accept all that but where did people like Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad and Subhash Chandra Bose lacked… According to me the only thing they lacked was their brand image wasnt as big as that of Mahatma Gandhi..
Another point of view can be that may be the method of Gandhi was more effective in that time. I didnt live in that time so can’t comment with much authority on that topic..but as far as i have read and as i feel ….Gandhi was not as simple a man. He also had his faults and shortcomings..one of them being the favouritism for Pt. Nehru..I dont have much strong feelings for Gandhiji but Nehru is one man i strongly despise……
Another thing i would like to consider is
“Whether this Gandhigiri is possible in today’s world?”
My answer to this would be — This might look very good in a comedy movie that a guy can solve the problems of people by usig this “radio thingy”.. I will never agree that it is possible to change people’s mind this way.. Just a radio program.Isnt this going a bit too weird…(Wont blame the director of the movie for this coz he has to earn money and not to worry abt the practicality of the movie)
Another case that comes into my mind is of ‘RDB’ ..ppl got so influenced by the movie and the feeling was..that we should also do something the system is corrupt and its up to us <<< We the gen next >>> But i would like to say that whatever was done in the film was just childishness…No sensible person would do whatever was done in the movie
I am not saying that we should acquiesce to whatever is happening in the society. Everybody accepts that the society is not going in the right direction but before praising the movies and thinking of them as something path breaking. We should look into ourselves, are we ready to do such stuff. This is a pretty big ask first of all we should think whether we are even able to do something small… Such a small activity(according to me) can be joining “Bharat Uday Mission” and atleast going through all its mail and giving it a thought.. I tried it ,joined “Bharat Uday Mission” mailing list but failed miserably in doing so.. So all the other tasks are a big ask for a normal guy (which i think i am)….
In the end, I would like to say one thing that if you wanna do something for your nation do some thing in an organised way. Like the “Paritrakshana “ (whatever be the spelling..bhavnaon ko samjho yaar) party formed by some people.. Thats a pretty good idea..given that it succeeds and i am sure that if such intellectual people get the power they even at their worst will be atleast better than the current crop of the administrators….
PS1:- I sucked in expressing my feelings but had to write something on such a topic.. 🙂
PS2:- Lage Raho Munnabhai is worth watching atleast once…
