Ghajini, Quit (Most of) India!

We urge readers of KARNATIQUE whose mother tongues are other than Hindi to not view the movie Ghajini as a note of protest against Hindi imposition.

Entertainment has become a major leak-hole through which Hindi is getting imposed on India. While laws and departments of the Govt. of India get opposed in non-Hindi states either formally or informally, the increasing amount of sexual content in Hindi movies is accomplishing what the laws and departments set out to do - impose Hindi on the whole of India. Non-Hindi states must answer back by boycotting Hindi entertainment of any sort and give audiences what they want in their own languages. Hindi must quit most of India, which speaks languages other than Hindi.

And again, let's reiterate that Hindi is not the national language of India. It's only an official language of the Indian union, and that too is undemocratic.

Movies are a choice - see them or don't see them.

@Malolan

Agree,, movies are a choice.. but what about the reviews that hindi movies get? they usually get reviews and advertising to such an extent that, people start feeling that hindi movies are really all that good...

No please do not think that India will shine only because this movie was made in hindi.. Hindi does not represent India all alone. Moreover, tamil ghajni is also remake from english flick momento. All we are discussing here is, why should hindi movies replace kannada movies in heartland of kannada? where else should Kannada survive? is it that only Hindi is capable of showcasing India? are all other Indian languages second grade to hindi?

I would rather prefer to watch the original : 'Memento' upon which both the Tami and Hindi versions are conceptualised on........

@ SomeOne,
Well Said.. ! ... I had to forcibly go watch that gay movie 'Dostana' as my wife forced me to... how on earth did such a movie get a 'U/A' certificate I am really amazed... I could see small kids with their parents in the theatre... what on earth are the parents/bollywood filth trying to inculcate in our kids ? ... but at the same time a well made violent movie like 'Maadesha' got into controversy even after getting an 'A' certificate ?.. why this difference ... ? coz the Censor Board is under Central Govt...? Obviously it would favour those unhygienic bollywood filth... even movies like 'Moggina Manassu' got into controversy ... but most of these bollywood filth by default has skin shows... which they dont even hesistate to give 'U/A' certificate ... This is Democracy... this is Nationalism as per these Psuedo Nationalists.

Tell a lie 1000 times and people will accept it as the truth. Advertisement in 'English Media'. Hour long programs about them titled as 'Indian cinema' (My foot). Sleazy skin show is what Bollywood has.

Kannada Cinema makers can also learn this from them. If you cant beat them join them. Telugu and Tamil movie makers have been greatly successful at this. Learn from them.

I have seen local people watching Telugu and Tamil cinema in UK, US which becomes a habit later on which is what these people have managed to achieve.

In the intial days, they have distributed the reels freely though they incurred losses with the distant vision of greater profit in the future.

To Hell with Hindi Cinema. I sometimes feel, democracy is a problem!!
