Can anything be misrepresented in the name of art? Is nothing sacred? Will we allow a flag which doesnt resemble ours, to be passed of as our national flag? Similarly shouldn't  the law of the land be sacred?

Watched the movie Aitraaz. Sexual Harassment is a serious issue. A man or a woman can be sexually harassed at work. But are the scenes in the movie a realistic depiction of the legal procedure? Not only was the procedure unrealistic, even the definition was wrong. Surely when you hit another person on their posterior everyday as a greeting , its sexual harassment.

Bollywood doesnt like Hollywood comparisions. But can we imagine a Hollywood movie where the legal system is misrepresented?

What is the logic behind Censor Board, if movies misrepresenting legal procedure is cleared. Just because many movies in the past have done it doesnt mean others should be able to do it in future.

What is the literacy level in India. And what is the legal awareness level? How many today think its better to not get involved with the legal system, even as a witness? What will be easier, paying off a cop, or going through the legal system.

People worry about a seer's image if a case against him is not cleared on time. What about those who can't afford decent lawyers? What is the credibility of the system when its easy to get a warrant against the President?

For any society to function well, respect for the law is essential. (Thanks to the movies, the cases will be finished in couple of weeks and there is no procedure and just lengthy emotional dialogue and a judge who just says � order order�  to courtroom laughter.)  I dont think any other professionals would keep quiet if their procedures are potrayed wrongly. If a Surgeon in a movie, is shown to operate with an axe, for dramatic reasons will the medical profession remain quiet?

Judicial reforms are required. But why will the MPs care, when people dont care. But how will people care when they dont know the details? And when we dont have any medium to create legal awareness, atleast we can stop blatant misrepresentations? How will people demand for change, when they dont know what to change.

Ironically if the Lagaan movie director had decided to change a cricket rule and had decided that for a dramatic effect, a person would not be out if the bails fall but for a "bowled" wicket  all the 3 stumps should be knocked down, it would have created more furore.

Its not acceptable to mispresent a cricket law, but who cares about the law of the land?

Suggestion : Perhaps irresponsible potrayl of the legal system be penalised by a 1% tax on its revenue to discourage it

    Means : Objection , protest, opposition – the opposite of approval …

    Story line : Hunk hero falls in love with a model aspiring to make it very big in life – by hook or by crook. Hero knows of her ambition – stll humps her…I mean goes around with her , sleeps and enough steamy scenes happen between the 2 of them.

    Model becomes pregnant. Model obviously aborts – she would not give up her million dollar figure which is her way to success !Hunk hero’s fatherly feeling & affection suddenly takes an upper hand !! he is heart broken that she did away with the seed he had planted …in one of the F- sessions he had with her ! – he leaves her and they part ways.

    Hunk hero meets a dumb advocate (played by Kareena)– floors her by talking like a 17 years old boy and they get married to live happily ever after…..but the Director had something else on mind.

    Ex flame – model – now married to an old haggard Industrialist – because of his money ofcourse – wants hunk hero back – just to hump her occasionally – not as a hubby as she has all the goodies from her rich old haggard – unable to perform on bed husband.

    She wants to have the cake and eat it too. Hunk hero, to her surprise acts pricey this time – he had metamorphosed to a typical patn i(wife devoted) vrata Indian man !- seldom found nowadays though……he declines her indecent proposal !

    She is mad – she sues him of raping her when she was alone at home – a rich Industrialist – alone at home !!- no servants !! – anyways hunk hero confesses to Indian wife of his escapade with oomph mistress.

    Wife takes up the case and fights for her husband – they win ! wow ! what a wife –

    There was a scene of the beach – all nude – well almost nude females dancing on the beach – no wonder – Mother Earth had objection to it and shook up slightly in disgust – causing a Tsunami …remember Carrie – the English movie ? I have written about it read it and see how the higher world reacts to vulgarity.

    The most talked about scene : a song where the ex-model and horny but dissatisfied wife of the old haggard Industrialist calls Ram Malhotra (Akshaya) to her cabin and jumps on him singing "I want to make love to you" in English ! Just imagine dear Britishers !! how these Chamelions - Indians change their colors - they are singing english songs in hindi movies !!..Later we come to know that its just a dream sequence !! KLPD sequence for men !!...but anyways they all went home with a new dream ...a possibility of having a huge - spacious office area for horny ladies to sing and jump with !!SOme men even captured the hot- slurpy scenes in their mobiles !! when the fatso & ugly wife comes closer to him after a long day in the Kitchen cooking his fav. dish, he can quitely put on the mobile - get turned on - and then shut his eyes tightly thinking that some horny lass is singing .....I want to......



Have a Great Day!
