Story of a lost journalist

Cinema goers

Filed under: Just talking,life — Cris @ 23:58

I went to see a movie today. As it is, I was finding it quite an effort to concentrate on lip movements (as obviously it was a waste of time to make out the actual words when actors chose to breathe louder than they talked). Here comes the deal that brought me to blog today (for of course it takes heavily major deals to bring me to blog!). There were these 2 yappity yappity yappy girls sitting to my left. What earned them their name is they chose to yappity yappity yap yap right through the movie, right in midst of these high-concentration-demanding dialogues!

Why do people come for movies if all they want to do is make sure the rest of the world knew about what some woman called Mallika did last week or what food they like to have on hot summer days? I mean they can do their “diplomatic-talks” over a coffee in some good café where neighboring coffee takers watched with keen eyes (this I am sure will happen since admittedly, these girls were stunning and I have a feeling the front-row males would kick me out if I suggested a different location to do their yap-routines).

There is a huge list of annoying cinema-goers. They come in all kinds and shapes. The yakkers are what annoys me the most. Another kind is the boo-ers. Of course I like some booing around when it calls for that. But there are some who dedicate the entire 2-3 hours for it, one wonders if there exists an underground booers-training agency that produces booing graduates with booing diplomas, and those who failed ended up clappers. You might as well watch the movie in the premises of a few noisy trains and a really loud bull dozer.

High-quality booers, no doubt, post graduates in the field specialize in swearing. Swearing comes in all languages, and pitches. Some keep those special moments for power-failures, some for delicate scenes and most for absolutely no reason – this last-said group comes from the prestigious top-rankers list of the aforesaid agency.

All in all, the cinema is a happening arena. I wouldn’t miss it for 10 packets of Margarita Pizzas; hmm I think…

  2. So you heard they talking about the details of actresses. That is precisely the reason for all the trouble. Have you heard, “kazhutha kaamam karanju teerkkum” ?. This does not exclude donkeys bounded by the walls of a cinema hall.

  4. Cris,
    About a year back had gone for a Malayalam movie with parents and brother.
    When power failed for a couple of sec, I booed 😉 and dad caught me booing and all through the drive back home, gave me gyaan 😀
    So never boo when with parents 😛

  5. Try going for a Malayalam movie (Especially Mohanlal or Mammooty films) within the first week after release. 😉 Flying papers , non stop whistling, funny dancers … You wont miss anything! 😀
    I do Boo when power fails ! Even if I wont, i am tempted to do it when the theater people cut scenes from an already censored movie to save running cost..

  6. Well..Back in the college(and perhaps a couple of years after) I would have belonged to the ‘boo-er’ category . 🙂 Yeah..Itz kinda fun when u r with ur frinds but the driving force behind the incessant booing wud be the ‘creativity’ of people like Karan Johar who comes up with their self-proclaimed Magnum Opus such as Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham…Fans,please excuse..But it deserves a standing ‘ Boo-vation ‘ ..whatever that means…As for ‘yappity yappity yappy ‘ people, I just hate that category whatsoever.. 🙂

  7. @multimenon, asking chettanmar may not always work kiddo! Be careful if they are pretty strong-looking chettanmar! And when have girls started booing in Kerala?! Thats a totally new info to me!

    @manu, I didnt hear what they were talking about, only made out blah-blah. But I didnt get the rest of the comment?

    @meghnak, Hindi and me unfortunately do not get along very well. Enjoyed Jaane Tu though, i.e. as much as I followed! Hehe!

    @Nikhil, hehe or else master your ventriloquy!

    @Srijith, I am sick of first day Lal-Mammooty theatre experiences! You cant make out even one line in the movie. I have to wait for it to turn up on TV to know what the story was! And I dont mind booing at powercuts 🙂

    @Bijin, I appreciate booing when its done at the right time. Heck I’d even contribute to it! After mastering ventriloquy that is ;-). Right now its in the range of 0.01 Hertz!
