We Hyderabadis, though are a very proud race and believe that we are the best in everything we do, we are unarguably one of the worst movie watchers. This, mind you, isn’t a reaction of one incident. Infact it is a response to the loads of incidents over a period of one year.
I remember when i went to watch Race 2 (yes i watched it and i have no clue why), a typical Hyderabadi guy sitting beside me was not only spitting paan throughout the movie, but also was spitting out the dialogues and scenes before they appeared on screen. To add to this, he shouted out ‘baingan’ every 10 minutes thinking that it would make him cool. As if this wasn’t enough, he elbowed every time he said that and laughed with his red teeth as if looking for acknowledgement.
The movie wasn’t great anyway so it wasn’t much of an issue. But i had a real tough time watching The Conjuring. “Kya yaaro, pinde ka haarar, kamdy philam dikhri merku” was all i could hear. Bloody son of a bitch! He spoke throughout the film, I wonder why? How does it help them?
Is this a kind of internship that they get a certificate for? Or are they part of Utorrent’s outreach team, that discourages people to watch movies in theater and download them? Whatever it is, it remains beyond my understanding.
I do not say that having fun in the theater is bad. Well, we pay to have fun. But ruining other’s movie watching experience isn’t a good thing to do. All baingan ke baata! :p
