Hey Kumar,

Cinemas are meant for entertainment when it was initialized however it has captured the concentration of all.It certainly creates an impact on audience,kind of styles and behaviour shown on the screen performed by various actors are always imitated in real life.

Neglecting the fact that movies are for pure entertainment,few consider it personally to the extent that practising different abnormal and non-practical facts are followed.Especially students whose thougths are fresh and ideas to be untilised for strong foundation of their career are drived in wrong directions.

We cannot deny the fact that cinemas are never true,people create their own platform of characters to repalcing their identity in real life.Students ratio influenced is more comparitively others,fresh and young blood is diverted to achieve uncommon things.

Instead of censors launched to reduce the effects of impact,they fail.

AT A six-day workshop conducted jointly by the Department of Journalism and Communication, University of Madras, and the Mass Communication Alumni Association, University of Madras (MCAUM), the focus was on the impact of cinema on society, with emphasis on the urban narrative in Indian cinema. Most of the participants were students of Communication from the university and other colleges.

Among the speakers included directors Balu Mahendra and Janaki Vishwanath, Vasuki of the All India Democratic Women's Association, media person Shashikumar Menon, film critics V.A.K. Ranga Rao and Vasanthi Sankaranarayanan, art critic Sadanand Menon, Suguna Swamy of O&M, Fr. Felix of the Department of Christian Studies, University of Madras, Fr. Rajanagayam of the Department of Visual Communication, Loyola College, Venkatesh Chakravarthy, film analyst and legal experts, Giridhar and Chandru.

The screening of "Veedu", "Kutty", "Vaastuhaara", "Gemini", Jean Luc Godard's "Breathless" and two shorts, "Happy Anniversary" and "Big City Blues", was followed by reviews of the films.

The importance of approaching cinema as a medium to project present day life, the portrayal of urban women in films, the psychological aspect of human relationship and Man's relationship with Nature, unrealistic portrayal of law and order in cinema and creation of a pan-Indian identity... these were some issues that were raised.

While it was not denied that most social evils had been attributed to the medium, some thought-provoking points were raised on how cinema can be used to develop society towards nation-building.

Movies definitely impact the youth. Young people who have not had ample time to develop the brain capacity to evaluate the actual consequences of their actions.

Kids will copy what they see, without being able to consider what the risk is. Remember the movie The Program? I believe it showed some young people lying down on the center line of a road - and a bunch of incidents happened in real life after that, and of course, to much more negative results.

There are many many incidents of learning new lingo from movies. I would say that Clueless gave us more slang / catch phrases than anything else in recent memory. "whatever" "as if" "I'm outtie" to name a few. They created a way of speaking that filtered through the youth of the nation and actually stuck for quite awhile. I still hear these phrases off an on today.

And then I could always bring up the horrifying rise in teen sexual activity. Pretty much every movie out there portrays fornication as normal, and expected behavior. But ... the movies don't show the reality of what happens in the lives of those involved after the fact. There are so many more teen pregnancies and ruined lives today than there were in the 50
's when couples slept in twin beds on tv. :) Sex is all around us, and the message is clear, "if you're not sleeping around with lots of people, there's something wrong with you" and we're seeing the ruined lives to prove that message is getting into their head

Cinema has a profound impact as a mass media on Indian Citizens Psyche, including students. Regrettably the credentials of those who make films may not be so clean. Also the agenda of Cinema is neither known nor validated by any authority.

In this scenario it is up to an individual to decide what may be good or bad and hence films are open to individual interpretations .

Of course media plays a vital role in this. Cinema as such has to be considered only for entertainment and not to influence any one. Most of the things shown on the big screen is unrealistic, which can never happen in your real life. Whether it is love,horror,stunt.....

Students are really influenced by this. It may be in their dressing style, walking, speaking to elders/teachers.....

Regards,
Tara

There are many factors on which the influence of cinema on the students depends. The age group of the students, the individual nature of the student and family too. Indian cinema influence the students of age group 8-14 the most because they feel what is being displayed is real and try to live in the world of imagination. Moreover it is adversely affecting the students due to growth in the Indian cinema and most of the things shown are not at all constructive and is mere wastage of time and money. Continuous attachment to Indian cinema is like an addiction which can be found among students. Moreover due to the surge in bold Indian movies the teenagers are distracted the most.
