Are film-makers harming folk culture?
Producer and director take a gamble trying to woo crowd by showing what they want. It's all commercial. It's not a charity, so while adding entertainment to original folk stories, sometimes they lost the gist of real story and basically distort the original history.
Current trend in movies is towards folk culture, which may fade away soon.
The producers are distorting history and giving a wrong picture of real life story to viewers for making money.
What a cinema is showing may not be exact folk culture because movies are created for entertainment. For brining entertainment quotient in a movie most of the time makers forgot about the folk cultures and values.
There was a movie released recently named after Abraham Lincoln. We all know Mr. Abraham Lincoln played a great role in history but this movie shows him as a vampire slayer. So film maker completely misrepresented history in this case.
Film makers are promoting our values and traditions by movies. Youngsters are more interested in video games now so at least films teach them a bit about our folk history and values.
If a movie is on folk culture then it should elucidate the beauty of the culture and there should not be any masala added to lure the audience.
Folk culture is to be preserved in its natural and an inheritance should not be used to make money out of it by depicting the same in movies.
Humans are any ways making museums to keep our history safe. Making few films would not harm our history.
It should ok if filmmakers are making folk movies but one thing they should keep in mind, that they must not present wrong facts in front of viewers.
