An increase in the number of Indian films glorifying violence is causing concern among censor board officials even. i feel unnecessary violence is contributing to the downfall of the value of Indian cinema .

I agree with you Chetan Juneja. Something has got to be done to curb such violence in the Indian cinema. Further, the youngsters these days are emulating the violence they see on Indian cinema.

Hi friends What i feel is its just not the violence but an overall degeneration of human emotion that what the recent films shows is further supporting the youngsters in taking drugs and involve in anti social things. What is the censor board doing?

like other art forms films also tend to depict the society. And we all know how crimes are getting in the nerves of todays society. A child killed another child from jealousy. a school goer stabbed his classmate over a very li l issue.. So directors are just making films on these cases.. We can t blame an art form, rather we should try to change the whole social scenario thus changing the narratives of a particular art form.

According to me, violence in Hindi movies can be shown only when the story or script demands. Unnecessary showing of violence here and there in a movie leads to bad effect on kids and teenagers. It often leads to extreme mental stress and trauma in small children. More hindi movie needs to be made providing some social message and ending on a positive note.

In any form, negative items should be down played inorder to safe one s culture and society. By sensationalising negative forms it doesn t help the society. It further helps to deterioate the minds of the young. Further, film makers have certain obligation to society and not just think of making money only.

To a certain extend you could be right Ratri Basak. By patronising this kind of movies, we may in a way encourage the producers and directors to continue to produce such kind of movies. So the only way to ensure that this kind movies are not produced is to boycott them, is that correct Ratri Basak?

We are not disputing the fact that there are no violence in real life. But what we are saying is not to sensationalise the viloence in the movies and make the Hero look good or Macho. As it is young children who immortalise movie Movie Heroes are picking up these bad habits. In today s world, we can see the children involvement in drugs and crime which they have copied from the lifestyle of personalities that are depicted or potrayed in the movies. Further, there may be, a little bit of violence here and there in India but we do not have to show the whole world that India is full of violence through the blockbuster movies. We are neither helping the children nor the country by bringing in unnecessary violence into the movies. Some of us have the habit of justifying our negative actions but in the final analysis it is not helping our community or the world at large.

In Indian movie-history, violence precedes comedy. Since the inception, the time when Indian cinema was in embrayo, movie-makers had been taking to myths, historical annals and our grand epics which are infested with violence. Even the first Indian movie, fathered by Dada Saheb Phalke Raja Harishchandra was not without violence. Films based on historical anecdotes speaking volumes about romance, could not be immune from intrigues, resulting in violence. Sublimities of sacrifices, no matter whether they are of national or personal interests, sequences of violence happen to be the inevitable and unavoidable practices. Jhansi Ki Rani directed by Sohrab Modi in 1948, with the credit of first Indian color movie and Mughal-e-Azam considered as the greatest love-saga, released in 1961 can be taken as vivid examples. With the passage of time, Indian cine-world started aping violence from the Western cow-boy legacy since early 60s. Violence gains momentum since the early phase of 70s and culminates with Sholay in 1975. It was followed by a host of like plots. But, none could surpass or dwarf the paramountcy of Sholay . The underground world was highlighted with Feroz Khan s Aparadh , a stylised adoptation from Coppola s Godfather . Thenceforth, the Mufia-convention has become a rash catch. Besides, political corruptions creep in and violence in Indian cinema takes a new dimension. In order to do away with violence, counter-violence has been taken as the antidote. Regular movie-goers must be aware of this vogue convention. Of course, violence plays deep impact on our social life, mainly on the youngsters. But, cinema, as the most implied means of showcasing society, cannot fight shy of the true pictures of the society. Besides, Company , we have Black or Paa . Bees collect honey from flowers, drones can collect nothing but spiders collect poison. It is the modus operandi that matters.

Violence scenes in the Films TV shows and even in Cartoon films are increasing day by day. This is a very serious issue. The effect of the increasing violence scenes you can find in the younger generation who have very little tolerance they gets angry like air bubble. We should protest against this would you like to join hands
