Hi All,

Have a look...

Now, the pro-Kannada activist want back a 7-week moratorium, is this acceptable to people like us.

Why are they forcing people to watch Kannada movies, instead they should make those movies better so that people would watch them instead of resorting to such activities.

Just think of situation, if other states follow the same pattern, what about those expatriates.

So wat do u all say on this..

Kannada movies are of poor quality, so not many watch them. These guys should concentrate on bringing some good quality movies.

I am okay banning Hindi movies.

These kind of patterns come frequently from different parts of country.Unfortunately 'intelligencia' support or turn blind eye towards these activities.Major reason is local people feel they are being neglected and somebody else is earning money on their land.POlitical pary Shiv Sena was grown up on these sentiments in its earlier period.In other states where industrialization was carried out,situation was not much different.In Bangalore situation is not much different.People across the country from Kashmir to Kanyakumari,Assam to Gujrat are coming here for jobs/businesses.One localite said to me that he feels he is being thrown out by this economy.Political organizations are always on hunt for people suffering from frustration or who think they are being attacked.

Not completely acceptable!. In the beginning this was for 7 weeks, then after some discussions it came down to 3 weeks. Now because some movie houses released Veer Zaara defying this moratorium. So now they are asking again for 7-week moratorium.

Nobody is forcing to watch Kannada movies

Yes, and also many of the movies are remakes of the successful movies from other languages. A moratorium to ban this is also necessary
But not all other language movies' are good, some of the recent movies (like recently release Tumsa Nahin Dekha and inteqam) deserve permanent ban

There are many good movies in Kannada (also in other languages apart from hindi/english), will you watch them?

I think this moratorium will be for some time (may be a year or so), and hope once the local film industry grows this will be removed.

The last Kannada Movie I watch was "A.K.47", before that I watched "Om". Om was good(I prefered Kannda version than Hindi version[Arjun Pandit]) even A.K.47 was OK but tell me in last 5-6 years which Kannada movie is worth watching.

And how do you think by delaying the release of other languages movie will boost Kannada movie industry..

>>Nobody is forcing to watch Kannada movies
thats the point. If people dont want to watch Kannada Movie than how do you thing that KMI (Kannada Movie Industry) will boost.

>>Yes, and also many of the movies are remakes of the successful movies from other languages. A moratorium to ban this is also necessary.
Forget about 5-10 metro cities, how do you think people could have watched "Nayakan" etc movies without having a remake of it in other language.
And at least I know about north, dubbed movies has very low viewership because either they dont know actors or the dubbing is of so low quality that its better not to watch.

>>There are many good movies in Kannada (also in other languages apart from hindi/english), will you watch them?
As much I know, a moviegoer does not mind the language but he wants a good movie.
But obviously, then he need to have access to good movies too. You cant expect "Om" to be released in Delhi and be super hit too
But if it is good movie then KMI can earn money by selling the right to other language movie indus.

I doubt that any movie industry can grow by banning other language movie.
Banning other lang movies simply shows their lack of confidence in themself to stand up for competition.

The problem lies here...Even to so-called 'intelligencia' is supporting this movements. How could they do this.


Major reason is local people feel they are being neglected and somebody else is earning money on their land.

People across the country from Kashmir to Kanyakumari,Assam to Gujrat are coming here for jobs/businesses.

One localite said to me that he feels he is being thrown out by this economy. Political organizations are always on hunt for people suffering from frustration or who think they are being attacked.



If the political parties were involved we wud have known that they support this only for their vested interests...but when we have this eminent personalities & academicians supporting, it seems bit ridiculous.

Well we are here in a new state & would surely like to enjoy the local culture, thats the best thing in India that you can experience different culture in every state & I do appreciate that, but when such kind of activities happen, its bit dissapointing as they are depriving the citizens of their own fundamental rights.

Your say...??

Side effects of globalization .
To any problem there are always many sides!
Its true that Kannada movie industry is in doldrums but rescuing it at the cost of other language films is not acceptable.Some Kannada directors/artists feel that theatre owners do injustice to Kannada films.But many feel that this kind pf protection won't help.You can't force people to watch movies which they don't prefer to watch.

Do you think the Kannada film industry will improve because of this ban? Protectionism neither improves quality nor is it lucre. The older socialists of India were trying to do the same few decades before. They have thrown out the MNCS like IBM, Ford and Coke. Did our domestic industry grew up? We had pre WWII cars like Ambassador for half-a-century and were proud abt it..

In this case,I doubt whether protectionism will help but sometimes protectionism is necessary.India adopted 57 years back bcos at that time it was necessary.Would people had the money to purchase diet-coke with golden griddle cake in a country where proper drinking water is not available ?and if available,womenfolks need to walk 4 miles to bring it home?

even today how many people opt for diet coke

And "Double Seven" was declared flop soon after launch(Govt product) and then ThumbsUp had to come to take the cold drink market.

What did we gain by that ??

Now how many people are buying Ambassdor ??
