The bigger our Indian movie stars, the greater the bullshit that falls from their lips on occasion.
The latest to earn the title of BS King is none other than our Ulaganayagan (Universal Hero) Kamal Haasan, whose embarrassingly bad Dasavatharam is now running on movie screens in several continents.
Some of Kamal’s recent comical statements suggest that while he may not have done a great job with the story of Dasavatharam, he’s indeed suitable for writing dialogs for Vadivelu and Vivek (two popular Tamil comedians).
According to NDTV, here’s what Kamal had to say at the launch of the audio for the film Kodaikanal:
The day when Hollywood would yearn for awards from India rather than (us) running behind the Oscars is not far off going by the improving quality of our films.
What is Kamal smoking?
If Indian films are improving, it must indeed be a closely guarded secret because we’ve seen very little evidence of it.
Indian films, whether Hindi or Tamil, are light years behind Hollywood in story, acting, special effects, makeup and virtually every department.
For the most part, Indian films are hopelessly bad. Pathetic pieces of s*#t.
Do you really believe that in our lifetime, we’ll ever see a movie like Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon or Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth made by an Indian director. No way.
The self-congratulatory, scratch-my-back and I’ll-scratch-yours Bollywood and Kollywood bozos deluding themselves as movie makers with their inflated egos and heightened sense of self-importance are amateurs for the most part.
Take Kamal’s recent Himalayan disaster Dasavatharam for instance. The makeup for some of the characters (Christian Fletcher and George W.Bush, in particular) was so bad that even kids participating in Vaniyambadi corporation school fancy dress competitions would have better makeup.
And as for the Dasavatharam story – an unholy mess is the best way to describe it.
To be fair to Kamal, he’s not the only famous Indian star to talk unadulterated rubbish at times or have an inflated view of the Indian movie business.
About two years back, veteran Bollywood actor and senior citizen of the Indian movie industry Amitabh Bachchan, often referred to as Big B, made this sophomoric comment in London:
Whereas we respect the Oscars and what they are, our creativity is the best.
By that single statement, Big B proved that Big B really stands for Big Buffoon.
Despite churing out a prodigious quantity of movies every year, creativity is an aberration in Bollywood or Kollywood films where plagiarism of Hollywood movies is frequent, acting talent rare and formulaic creations run rampant.
