The greatest wealth in this world is mental peace and good health.
Not only technologically but otherwise also the Hollywood movies are much advanced compared to Bollywood movies. I sometimes watch Hollywood movies also on small screen.
After retirement from service, I got enough time at my disposal to indulge In extracurricular activities and on few occasions visited the neighbourhood malls for watching movies in multiplexes for a change. Needless to mention here, my wife accompanied.
My latest venture was watching 'Padmaavat' in a theater last month at San Jose, California, USA.
I often enjoy the luxury of fully reclining seats in such theaters and if the movie is not totally absorbing, take a short nap also under such circumstances.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
Honesty is the best policy.
In the last 25 years I would have seen totally two or three movies in theatre. Within that also, in the last 15 years I had not seen even a single movie at all in theatre.
'Idhuvum Kadandhu Pogum "
Even this challenging situation would ease
So the craze continued and as I grew I watched them but once in a while.Today too I like to watch movies in theater provided the movie is good and entertaining.
Watching movies at the bring screen a few years ago was a craze due to the movie appeal, hero worship and to enjoy good wholehearted entertainment. Importantly, those days, a weekly holiday meant, a visit to the parks, temples or movies. we did not have big malls or other forms of entertainment. It would be a stand-alone movie theater.
Once we have the VCP and VCR coming, things changed. Then came pirated movie CDs which diluted the need to visit theaters. Then we have internet, free movie download sites, in short, this brought good quality/high definition into our living rooms. At the same time, our social calendar and avenues to spend time have changed a lot. So, I feel this has made many \, like me, change over to the home screen rather than the big movie screen.
Watching movies in a 3D theater is bound to have more expensive in comparison to the normal theaters which as per me not existing in the metros because of the competitions. So, instead I would go for saving for the future or would give this to someone who needs this most.
