Inflating The Balloon....

‘Inflating The Balloon’ is a theory conceived by my friend Rajiv & Me one evening at Barista while sipping cappuccino. The theory states or rather goes on say that every individual feeds his brain with ideas or passive ambition and dreams, which he wants to fulfill or achieve, like inflating a balloon. I mention passive here because it’s not strong enough to come to the forefront. It mostly takes a back seat, never to see the daylight and occupies most of your brain.
Then one day u decide to take a plunge into that uncharted territory. If u r remotely successful, u tie a knot to that balloon signifying success or else u keep watering u r ideas taking it to a new pseudo level, thus filling air in the balloon.
REALITY CHECK, One fine day the balloon bursts which brings u back to earth. U accept the reality and continue to live the so called mundane life.
Then there is another kind of people whose balloon never inflates. Their life denotes a pretty much D.C line,no crests or troughs. A balanced life I guess.

In effect every one is given that balloon in life .So are you tying a knot or ….?

Getting Creative...

There goes another one....ideas.

Get Inspired….its easy & cheap. Planning to make a film, but nothing original is striking you……Chill !!! Go buy some Dvds of acclaimed directors, a truckload of popcorn and get inspired. Bingo!! We have a release in 9 mths, which is apparently different and interesting.
I think originality cease to exist in the Indian film industry. Its always a rip off masquerading as inspiration that matters and surprisingly it is able to rake in the moolah.
The filmmaker or the producers are not to blamed entirely. It takes 2 to Tango. We are equally responsible having accepted the crap that’s being churned day in day out and above all we are paying to see it.
It’s like smoking a cigi, we are actually buying death. We need to reject and stop watching movies which does not deserve a viewership. Once such movies start tanking and make losses regularly, the filmmakers will get wiser and start to make original and/or good content films.

‘Original Content is the King’ its high time we realize that.
