Cinema in India is no less than a religion and the stars in India are no less than an institution of faith. Cinema in India is apparently a reflection of India on the silver screen but then the question is, how realistic is the Indian cinema in its present form?
How often do we come across a movie like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha or A Wednesday which relate directly to the real time peculiarity and reflections of India?
Cinema in India is rather on a drum roll of a different perspective all together. A Sunny Leone item song, a lot of vulgar and steamy scenes and this is what a larger part of the Indian cinema has reduced to.
Of course, we understand that Cinema in India is no NGO that has the onus to improve the society or the nation. We understand that it is an industry and the prime objective is to sell entertainment.
But then again is entertainment all about item numbers and steamy scenes?
I am neither Pahlaj Nihalani nor any spokesperson of any frantic organization like Shiv Sena. My only objective is to highlight the losing essence of sense and reality in the Indian Cinema.

Cinema in India has set a precedent which lies far from reality or even sense for that matter. We can’t argue much about reality for there is something called fiction too but then fiction ought to make sense too unlike Cinema in India.
We have seen some beautiful movies like Shanghai, A Wednesday fail miserably because they didn’t have a steamy sex scene or a hot item number and this is what concerns us.
Where is the Indian Cinema heading to both from the purview of film makers and the audience? Are item numbers and steamy scenes the only ingredients of success? Shouldn’t cinema in India not make much more sense than what it does at present.

There is a thin line between passionate love making and vulgarity and unlike Hollywood the Indian Cinema has only been inclined towards vulgarity. We wonder why there are no item numbers in Hollywood! There is also a difference between being sensuous and vulgar and again cinema in India confuses that line.

To top it all you have movies like Lipstick Under my Burkha who are so desperate to sell anything in the name of feminism. Only if they knew what real feminism meant! Well of course we Indians have pseudo versions of everything, be it nationalism or feminism or anything else.
Well, of course, we Indians have pseudo versions of everything, be it nationalism or feminism or anything else. Well to conclude all we can say is that the Indian Cinema is sick and we wish it a speedy recovery!
