Bollywood, Indian Cinema, Short Stories

Old order changeth…

The golden era of certain Indian movies seem to have come to an end. Of course some popular movie songs and certain interesting scenes keep attracting the audience but not the stories as such.
Certain popular actors leave an indelible mark on the screen and the new comers try to repeat such stories and the viewers won’t have to wait till the end or even the middle! The hero is, invariably a disobedient son of a disciplinarian who has a soft corner for the hero’s younger brother who is studious and obedient and appears to be the saviour of the family till the hero springs a pleasant surprise… A smart good looking girl falls for the hero knowing very well that he is a “gang-leader”.

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.
