Another regressive commercial trash
2 June 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

With Paan Singh Tomar, Kahaani, Vicky Donor becoming big hits it ensure that there are many sensible viewers who are ready to see mature films with hatke topics dealt in an entertaining fashion. While one hand there are film makers like Anurag Kashrap,Dibakar Banerjee, Vishal Bhardwaj,Tigmanshu Dhulia who are trying to elevate the level of Indian cinema and at the same time there are the Rohit Shetty,Sajid Khan,Aneez Bazmee and hoards of South Indian inputs decelerating Hindi cinema back to 90s loud inane films. I have no problem with commercial cinema. Even Rang De Basanti or 3 Idiots are commercial entertaining films but they aren't as regressive as Rowdy Rathore. The trend started with Wanted followed by Dabang,Bodyguard,Singham whereby you have a muscled hero fighting with huge sized villain to take revenge. There are ample violence, slow-mo action sequences and loud dialoguebaazi where by the hero acquires the persona of a superman killing all in the way. There will be a family angle to instigate some over the top melodrama and obviously a dumb bimbo who is there to titillate audience's hormones with her midriff. Sadly Rowdy Rathore falls in the same category with nothing new to offer. In fact Prabhu Deva has changed nothing from the original making it a loud meaningless film only to catch the attention of single screen viewers to earn profit. There is nothing wrong in earning money but there should be an aesthetic sense to do so. At least Prabhu Deva should have presented the simple story of a cop getting killed by goons and his look-alike taking revenge differently. The hero is louder than the villain, the heroine is dumb than the ass and the janata frustrated with mundane life enjoying the slow-mo brutal action sequences. There are ample songs with sexual innuendos which are lapped by the hypocrite audiences and even the censor board giving the films "U" certificate. IMDb represents world cinema and as Indian we should show some respectable cinema to world. There are numerous topics to deal with, numerous stories to tell. Many directors are making good films, even stars like Aamir Khan is making good cinema in commercial milieu which we should highlight. I can't force people but it is high time who give more respect to films like Shanghai & Gangs of Wasseypur (releasing soon) than lapping on age old formulaic films so that Indian cinema gives more and more fresh stories. The trend started with Dil Chahta Hai shouldn't go down. Even if they want to remake Southie films there are some great south Indian films which can be remade, why do the same thing just for the sake of commercial benefits??

With Bol Bachchan & Chennai Express in the pipeline the scenario seem to be more bleak in terms of quality cinema … and the journey to regression continues :(
