I have shifted to Bangalore after being in Mumbai for many years. I love both the cities for various reasons but no city can be perfect city and so Bangalore has its own challenge - if you want to take a break you have predominantly two options, watch a movie or eat out.Being a big movie buff i do succumb to the movie charm very regularly. So after non stop work for the last 10 days i headed to watch,Break ke Baad last night. I felt cheated, insulted and frustrated after the movie. Cheated because i paid 350 rupees for a pathetic movie. Insulted because the movie makers obviously think i am a dumb fool. Frustrated because i wasted money, time and energy to go for an outing and came out more exhausted and drained.
To say Break ke Baad is an atrocious movie is an understatement. Honestly i wouldn't have written so candidly before i became a startup.As a startup i am fighting against time and every free time matters. Many sane souls in the theatre walked out after the interval, but i could not as sadly i remain an optimistic soul,pinning my hope that things will improve.
Why do movie makers do this to us? Why are we cheated again and again? Is there a solution to this plaguing problem (especially for bollywood buffs)?
There is a silver lining at the end of the road, atleast it prompts me to think of other business idea - Why not launch a site cum movement - I WANT MY MONEY BACK.COM , yes i am serious.
While i am contemplating how to deal with it, do share your opinion on this.
