Tubelight Movie Review: Salman Khan a Bane or a Boon?

Tubelight is an anti-war movie that elucidates the futility of war and teaches us the importance of not hating the ones who you are at war with. The film is a Bollywood remake of the 2015 Hollywood venture “Little Boy” by Alejandro Monteverde. The child hero Pepper, an 8-years old boy, beleaguered because of his small size, becomes Laxman Singh Bisht (Salman Khan) an obtuse adult who is bullied by Narayan (Zeeshan Ayyub). Salman has been excellent at playing a macho-man child throughout his career. His innocence and naughtiness combined with his fetching looks have always charmed us.  Now, here it is significant to note that for someone who is muscled and bulky like Salman Khan it is not easy getting used to him playing someone who is has mental limitations. Read more…

Dare I say, the books are better than movies!

And then… after they had ripped out half of her pages… They turned her into a movie!

And then… after they had ripped out half of her pages… They turned her into a movie!

Rescuing me from the glooms of boredom books have always been my life saver. Especially when I’m reading a novel. My imagination is at its best. I still remember reading “The Fault in Our Stars” what a joy it was. I got so involved that it felt like I was a part of the story. Every page I read took my curiosity to another level. Even when the novel ended, I was still curious to know more. For how long did Anna survived? How painful life was for her after Augustus died? Being a reader whenever I think about the novels I’ve read the greed to have known more about the character’s life after the novel ended haunts me.

Reading “The Fault in our Stars” raised my expectations about the movie. Since it was the first time I was watching a movie after reading the novel I couldn’t wait to see the characters living in front of me on the screen. I thought watching the movie would be even more exciting as it will give life to my imagination.

But sadly the movie turned out to be a mere disappointment for me. People may disagree, but now that I’ve experienced it for a couple of times I am confident enough to say that books are always better than the movies.

Movies can never sum up the emotions that are so beautifully described in the books. You can see a character crying, but can never feel what he’s feeling at that time. You can see a character dancing with joy, but the intensity of that happiness could only be felt when you get to read them. Novels are so detailed, but on the other hand movies are mere subtractions. Subtractions of events, emotions and experiences.

Novels let your imagination flow freely, but movies bound you to see things as the director wants you to see. The director’s interpretation can never live up to your imagination. Though movies are a reflection of what has been described in the novel, but still they’re so controlling. I don’t like my imagination being caged in a bunch of scenes after watching the movie. I bet most readers don’t.

If you’ve no liking for the books you’ll enjoy the novel based movie and come out of the theatre clapping, but if you’re a book lover then I suggest you to stick to the book and your very own imagination and don’t ruin it with a movie.
