and the blame game!
may be several factors for a film’s success
or failure, for that matter. But one issue that
is constantly brought up to attribute a film’s
failure to is – luck. The film industry
is abuzz with a number of lucky directors, lucky
actors, and even lucky shooting spots.
So what happens to the glamour doll… ooops,
the leading lady of the film? Sad that she is
the only one that takes the beating and doomed
for the rest of her life where career in film
industry is concerned. There have been discussions
in the past regarding the heroine of a film that
has either bombed at the box office or has never
seen the light of the day. But the others in the
film are never brought into this circle of discussion.
It is ironical to note that the film fraternity,
which is so based on the luck factor, does not
mind if the story chosen is a lucky one. But then,
who bothers about the story to consider it fortunate
when actually does this luck factor come to the forefront?
The answer lies in the fact that people blame it on luck
when they have not put in enough efforts in their ventures.
Coming back to the actresses, is it fair to shift the
blame on the lady just because she has been offered a
role to bask in the glory of the hero’s heroisms,
wear skimpy clothes, romance the hero and dance for a
couple of duets? Then there would be a comedian, most
likely the hero’s friend, ogling at the heroine,
all in the name of comedy. The latest trend is a comedian-heroine
dance sequence! Wonder why the women are blamed when they
have little to do with acting?
