A while since I have written anything.But this is a short note on a certain small detail I had always noticed in our cinema.
Happy Telugu Climax scene
While watching Allu Arjun’s Happy that starred Genelia too,I got an idea to assimilate my ideas on the moment when the “machismo” gets it’s viagra and resurgence occurs to finally outclass the antagonist!The scene where the damsel is in distress and the hero arrives to rescue her is nothing unfamiliar to us.Is it? The villain beats the hero to pulp leaving him to die.Suddenly the girl’s voice and her affirmation of love falls on the dying ears of the hero and revitalizes his broken bones,repairs his internal hemorrhages and he rises like a pheonix again to burn himself in the fire of love. These kind of scenes fill you with a queer sense of appreciation as if the emotional subtext of the scenes is over-riding your sensibilities. All in all such scenes serve as a perfect climax to a long movie and infact at the end celebrate the “machismo” that in some ways according to me is the more muscular manifestation of romance.Such scenes also are embedded to take the feelings of a movie goer to a pinnacle,then let it fall down and then again allow to rise it to zenith.The alteration between the nader and zenith is how a director wishes to leave a strong statement on his viewers.
Wedding Singer Climax
Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye Climax
Sachein Climax Scene
Similar is the “airport” scenes in our films that form a very important part of climax where the race between time and destiny becomes the most important question. Right from Vijay’s “Sachein” to JTYJN and Chalte Chalte,it has formed some very exciting pieces in our cinema.The airport scene later traveled inside the aircraft after “The Wedding Singer” showcased it with a beautiful song. Kahin Pyar Na Ho Jaye tried its luck with similar sequence too which was a remake of the same. I somehow find the airport stuff overdone now.They have reduced its frequency in scripts but I am very sure some other rom-com will certainly feature it very soon. Not to forget how the security-wallah says– “Ohhh,Pyaar ka mamla hai” that gives me a re-assurance that the understanding of love does not require shows like Satyamev Jayte”.Kidding!
A last mention of an oft repeated sequence in our cinema. The story has effectively ended.The protagonists have re-united.Happiness is evident.The villain is lying down almost dead/presumed dead.As everything starts oozing with happiness,suddenly the eyes of the villain soaked with blood open and the music goes “dhmm dhmm” and you instantaneously know that it is not over yet.The villain rises and thereafter one of the side-kick members like the father or the one who was a hindrance in the triangular love story has to succumb with a heart-wrenching death in the arms of the protagonist.Then comes the anger,seething anger that roars and ultimately kills the bastard villain.There is a lull and then the return to the corpse of the “side-kick” A few tears and the music at the back of the most popular track in the film and a hope that things will be fine,a relief that they are fine and they helping my belief in the adage “It ain’t over till it’s over” grow stronger.
I love my films.I will continue loving them for their idiocy for I can point 1000 senseless stuffs in classics and 1000 metaphorically embedded visual clues in a normal B grade saga.But these scenes and may more continue to form what we call the essence of our cinema.They are cliched but they are immortal.Share your views!
