ok, this is proper rant post, and i’m really furious. Watching a film in a cinema house in Calicut is a real pain. There are some real louts out here determined to give everyone else a bad time. How else can this be explained? Smoking in an AC cinema hall, constantly talking on the mobile phones, passing loud comments, checking the phone after every frame…For chrissake, we are watching a film, we are not at some bar!
We were watching SlumDog Millionaire at Crown in Calicut today. This was the third time I was watching a film in this city, and each time the experience has been terrible. At the screening of “Naal Penungal“, an Adoor film, a wierdo in the audience was heard speaking loudly on the phone, “its an art film man.” What did he expect? Four women with blouse buttons undone??? the idiot! During “The Departed”, we got tired of yelling “shut the phone!”.
It is simply bad behaviour. I am paying good money to see a film, and not learn your bloody history that you narrate to your friend sitting in the hall midway into the film. I will yell and ask you to shut up. I am not sorry. You should be. Take a *@(%%#$%#^*&* HIKE and shove that mobile phone and the cigarette up you know where. Grrrrrr!
