"Where are the soft, slightly unsure men with doubt and longing in their hearts?" asks filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who feels men are not portrayed appropriately in Indian cinema.

Mishra, known for directing movies like "Hazaaron Kwhaishein Aisi", "Chameli", and "Yeh Saali Zindagi", took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express his views on Indian cinema's portrayla of men.

"Indian cinema can reflect on violence in society, but they need to also reflect that many films show violent men as cool. Of course, strong roles should be written for women, but what kind of male morons are we portraying in our cinema?" Mishra tweeted Sunday.

"What is happening to the portrayal of men in our cinema? Where are the soft, slightly unsure men with doubt and longing in their hearts?"

Talking about actresses, he pointed out that more emphasis is on their beauty than talent.

"What kind of women are we portraying in our cinema? Advertisements for the fashion and cosmetic industry! Mostly," wrote Mishra.

"Where do we look for the Bollywood heroine mostly? Not in drama schools, theatre groups or in auditions but in beauty pageants."

"40 percent of Indian cinema is soft porn. The other 40 pure corn! Thank god for the twenty percent," he added.

Well said. Nowadays women have been reduced to eye-candies and men to some kind of idealistic superhero which get all too unbelievable. Looks not acting is now the ticket to bollywood.
All films are of the same formula, predictable but sadly in poor taste.
