There is an abundance of gangster films but none can touch Godfather in terms of compelling characters and their stories.Other movies that followed Godfather unfortunately didn’t care much for characters and their stories That’s how you will find all the glory of violence and power in these films but little sympathy for gangsters Filmmakers spent more time on glamorising the life of gangsters on screen But what makes gangster dramas such a favourite of audiences Because everyone loves the story of an underdog the Robinhood tale Some Hindi movies are based on real-life gangsters including Dawood Ibrahim and Abu Salem They are mysterious and make an interesting subject to watch on screen However there’s a very subtle difference between glorifying and doing justice to a gangster’s role on screen And filmmakers should understand that difference Other movies that followed Godfather unfortunately didn’t care that much for characters and their stories For instance Amitabh Bachchan’s character in Deewar is that of melancholy and loneliness His eyes carry a wealth of emotions You could sense his cynicism and cold sadness towards the world at large Even as he becomes part of underworld doing petty crimes he never loses sight of where he came from Few actors since Bachchan have succeeded to make a gangster character look so vulnerable and adorable Can Shah Rukh Khan do that The challenge before Raees is to create sympathy for its protagonist In Deewar you could sense Amitabh’s anger and sadness The trailer of Raees promises that film will be beautiful and magnificent But what about the character We hope that makers have that in mind as well For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More

thought out script that starts with the end And one will have to be not just nave but fairly obtuse to not see the pattern In what has to be more than a mere coincidence two mediocre wilfully blinkered and prejudiced persons have come to occupy two formidable positions in the Indian film industry positions that give them the power to wield a considerable say over what gets made and how it should be presented to the public So similar are the two occupants of the posts that they could well have stepped out of the cliched lost-and-found-brothers formula of Hindi films Both these men were appointed by the Modi government to watch over the film industry in 2015 In January 2015 Pahlaj Nihalani took over as chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and in June the same year Gajendra Chauhan was announced as chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in Pune As soon as Nihalani rescued from definite anonymity after an unremarkable stint of 29 years as president of the Association of Motion Pictures and TV Programme Producers and a string of forgettable movies took over he went on a rampage banning curse words disallowing A-certified films on television even with the requisite cuts and of course famously reducing the kissing scene in Spectre to a friendly peck In hindsight he was only a part of the scenario that was unfolding in the rest of the country Just in case anyone was daft enough to miss the point he also went ahead and released one of the tackiest music videos ever made titled Mera Desh Hai Mahaan dedicated to the prime minister Add to all these the recent Udta Punjab controversy and one gets the general sense of where the script is headed and who’s writing all the lines Having posted one dependable sentry at the exit point the government decided to work backwards when it realised it made more sense to snuff out the germ of free thought and radical expression at birth itself The spotlight then shifted to the FTII that cauldron of rebellious creativity and the best possible incubation lab for out-of-the-box thinking where students question established norms and heaven forbid morals Step two of the plan thus saw Chauhan appointed as sentry to this gateway The erstwhile Yudhishtir (ironically known for his wisdom and fair play in the epic) of the TV soap Mahabharat who emerged remarkably unscathed from the eight-month long strike that FTII students embarked on to protest his appointment also wasted little time in pushing the larger agenda of his benefactors Last month there were proposals afoot to turn the gurukul of Indian cinema into a digital and commercial institute pockmarked with short-term quick-fix popular courses To cut a long story short in the span of a little more than a year two
