Society and movies reflect each other. Explain the statement in the light of the impact of movies on Indian young minds.

Ans: Movies are made in order to entertain and educate people and make them aware of the reality. But today the basic concept has been misused and misunderstood. Movies do more harm than good on young minds. Nowadays movies are made for adults only & when the young children see them they gain maturity at a very early age & generally they make severe mistakes this way. Again, certain Hollywood movies are very scary & violent & their impact is so severe that children also become violent resulting in losing temper & can commit some criminal activities. Children should be strictly prohibited from watching such movies. At a very delicate age instead of concentrating on their studies, they waste their time watching movies & score badly in their exams. There are some very naked scenes in Hollywood movies & they have a very bad impact on the children. They tend to forget Indian culture & adopt western culture & thus they ruin their future. Parents should take care about their wards & guide them the right way by not allowing them to watch movies.

However there are certain educational & family movies which teach children the moral values & make them aware of the Indian culture & inculcates the morale within them. There are certain child movies which are meant for them only.

Most of the actresses are given roles in Bollywood movies to objectify beauty. More than half of them are ex-models (and the other half are the daughters of someone in the entertainment industry) who lack the raw talent of acting.

Drunkards, abusers, stalkers and bullies are portrayed as cool and worship able, promoting a wrong code of conduct amongst the young minds.

Sex related topics are generally considered as a taboo. Many parents feel awkward to speak about these, indirectly posing their thoughts through various restrictions placed upon their children. Financial and social hurdles stop these kids from dreaming big, forming an unpalatable average mind-set.

Lacking hope and guidance, they seek some knowledge from Bollywood, which in turn feeds them with the supposedly required idols and mentors.

There are, of-course, a handful of great motivating movies, which rarely make that much of fame and money, and hence are mostly avoided or are unfortunately unavailable to the masses.

Movies can have a negative or positive impact on teenagers depending upon their plot. If the plot is romantic or flirty teenagers will be provoked to hook up with boys or girls instead of focusing on career and if the plot is positive it can also act as a motivational or improving effect.
