Is it necessary to preach moral values through movies?Every year lot of Indian movies are getting released in cinema theaters. Some movies attract the audience and some fails to seek the attention of the audience. Lot of Indian movies have delivered strong content with good moral and social values. The creativity of delivering a social message through film varies from person to person. Some will explain the core moral content with violent action sequences; some will handle with comedy scenes and some will deliver a moral message through powerful punch dialogues. When compared to 80's and 90's films, the art of delivering a story and the making of the movies has changed a lot. Most importantly the taste and the expectation of the movie audience differ a lot between the current generation and the old generation. Generally, people go to theaters to spend time, enjoy and relax with friends and family members. But nowadays, many people watch movies at theaters to reduce their work stress. At that time, preaching moral values and stuffing strong social content in the minds of the audience through movies may irritate. It is obvious that many people will concentrate on the social message and will forget it once they step out of theaters. So, keeping that in mind some of the directors in the film industry gives more importance to the entertainment factor and never attempts to preach moral values to the audience.
Movie is a good medium to preach moral values. But is it necessary to preach moral values through movies? As a general audience, what you expect from a movie- a moral message or pure entertainment content without any message?
