Movies becoming a cheap game? What are today's movies up to?

I don't know how people would take this comment of mine. Or whether they would even read this post! Movies are the love and passion of many today and I perfectly understand and respect the choices of every one. I would never say watching movies is a wrong thing but have a look at the movies today. Actually can we even call them a movie? Sorry to say this, because I know how much time, efforts and energy is invested into making a movie, barring its huge expenses. But after such a big investment of time and effort of a big and talented team, is this the outcome expected? I do not mean to criticize each and every movie that has been released lately; I agree some of them are really good and worth watching but what about the others? Are they worth all the pain and effort?

One of the most common things that can be observed in all the movies is obscenity. I mean I don't understand who has told our directors that a movie cannot go hit without infusing intimate and truly vulgar scenes in them. Forget movies guys, the songs itself boast obscenity even in their lyrics. And apart from obscenity, there is absolutely unpleasant language, violence and what not in the movies of today? What impression is this making on people, children and teenagers?

Most parents today are working and are thus not at home the whole day. And what do the children of such parents do at home the whole day? Obviously, watch TV! In fact, that is the best timepass people choose to do whenever they are along. And when they see such vulgarity on TV, imitation is inevitable. For parents trying to figure out the reason of their children's smartness, it is movies that makes them too smart and perhaps too old for their age. Perhaps, due to this, children have been behaving like young adults and teenagers, losing their innocence at an early age in school.

And then the artists who act in such movies become superstars; they are regarded as God, they are admired and followed! What should we make out from this? When a call girl sleeps with two people, she is cursed and called characterless. What about our actresses who shoot intimate scenes with multiple actors and strip openly in front of the camera that the whole world watches? Who is characterless in the true sense guys? A girl who is forced into prostitution to fill her stomach and support her family, or those who simply expose in front of the world to earn crores? I am not against Bollywood, I am not against any film industry. I am against indecency, obscenity and violence that is depicted in movies these days for God knows what reason! In fact, there have been classic films that do not have a single intimate scene but are superhits. Try to be decent and moral people, how can we depict something that is against our culture and which corrupts the innocent minds of children? Worth thinking!
