There is a movie remotely similar to that "first wives club" LOL

I would rather make a 2 hour film of girls running in bikinis on juhu beach in mumbai or kalangut beach in goa... etc..may be it will go to the Cannes.. too...

 

LOL LOL LOL . I heard Sony has Dhoom 2 lined up for this weekend.

What are your thoughts? Smile

Based on topic name, No till some extend? How can movies like American desi or hyberabad blues represent a countey Ouch ... Is Africa mafia country? Is India country where economy lies in orchid dances? Is America full of leaders ? Wink Movies represents similar thought process of few but NOT to generalized... yeah but movies sure depict cultural aspects not a country as in whole. Rest is upto self to figureWink dilwale duniya ki kudiya le jayegeLOL

I didn't know Harry Potter and the Wizarding world actually existed. *sarcasm*
Movies are unrealistic. Even the most realistic is unrealistic. They're fictional and it's a story. Media does tend to influence how others perceive them and those of similar traits but if everyone was afraid because people would take it the wrong way then there's not point to movies, IMO. I watch movies for entertainment. Watching the same goody goody nice people without any conflicts in some sort of utopia type society ain't entertainment. It's boring, IMO.
