Impact Of Indian Cinema On Our Society

2 cinemaCinema is undoubtedly a part of everyone’s life.  We have grown up watching films. It is the most common source of entertainment and leisure. Talking about Indian Cinema, it has a very significant impact on our lives. Actors have become the role model for youth. Youngsters are greatly influenced by the character that an actor plays.

Positive impact:

Movies are the derivatives of our lives. This is the reason that we get connected to the stories so easily and relate them to our lives. Directors these days are thinking out of the box and are directing films that are more realistic. Most movies that gain popularity are the ones that depict the life of any famous personality. Some of the popular examples are Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and MS Dhoni. ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ depicted the life and struggles of the former Indian track and field sprinter. Movies make us aware of the real heroes. We can never leave our culture behind when there are directors like ‘Sanjay Leela Bhansali’, ‘Ashutosh Gowariker’ etc. giving their contribution to the Indian Cinema.

Negative Impact:

But we cannot forget to talk about the negative impacts of movies as well. As mentioned earlier, we can get influenced by a character so easily that sometimes it goes towards a negative direction. Other than drama and romance, the action is another major attraction of movies. Movies like ‘Darr’ and ‘Baazigar’ can engage people but leave a negative effect on their mind. Also, horror movies create a sense of fear and superstition in this modern world. People will not trust God but will surely believe that there can be a spirit under their bed at night! Many movies unintentionally help the criminals to do their job with more accuracy.
