Movie Experience

Few days back, I wrote about being bored inspite of the fact that I watched 5 movies over the weekend. I was wondering what was the real reason…

To me, there is a lot about watching a movie. Out here, it is an entertainment or time-pass. We get into a theatre here and the movie ends in couple of hours. In India, it is more of an experience by itself. Lets see how…

  • All the long queues infront of the ticket counter
  • Advance online booking for weekend shows
  • Parking the bikes like pile of plates placed vertically in the dish washer
  • Or parking the cars close enough to look like two of them kissing on the cheeks
  • Find the seat in dull light and argue with someone who occupied the one allocated for us
  • Watch all the ‘No Smoking’ adds in outdated slides – I guess most of the theatres would have received these slides as a memento on the opening day
  • Get drenched in confetti at the movie start and at the hero introduction scene
  • Hear 100 dialogues simultaneously elicited by the audience/fans when THE hero tries to go for a punch dialogue
  • Get disturbed by shouting college students & hissing lovers
  • Listening to songs in super-high volume, sometimes high enough to puncture the ear drum
  • Ooh, the interval in the middle of the movie
  • All the smoke in restrooms – somtime it looks like clouds hit a touch down, ofcourse except for the smell & temperature
  • In disarrayed queue against the snack counter, kids trying to buy cone icecreams and guys trying  to buy popcorn & coke for their girlfriends
  • After the movie, storm out and jam traffic

So many more are associated in going to a theatre to watch movies. I miss it a lot.
