Sudhir Mishra: 40 percent of Indian cinema is soft porn!

The talented filmmaker recently revealed his views on Indian cinema and how men are shown in bad light in most Bollywood films

“Where are the soft, slightly unsure men with doubt and longing in their hearts?” asks filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who feels men are not portrayed appropriately in Indian cinema.

Mishra, known for directing movies like Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, Chameli, and Yeh Saali Zindagi, took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express his views on Indian cinema’s portrayal of men.

“Indian cinema can reflect on violence in society, but they need to also reflect that many films show violent men as cool. Of course, strong roles should be written for women, but what kind of male morons are we portraying in our cinema?” Mishra tweeted on Sunday.

“What is happening to the portrayal of men in our cinema? Where are the soft, slightly unsure men with doubt and longing in their hearts?”

Talking about actresses, he pointed out that more emphasis is on their beauty than talent.

“What kind of women are we portraying in our cinema? Advertisements for the fashion and cosmetic industry! Mostly,” wrote Mishra. “Where do we look for the Bollywood heroine mostly? Not in drama schools, theatre groups or in auditions but in beauty pageants.”

“40 percent of Indian cinema is soft porn. The other 40 pure corn! Thank god for the twenty percent,” he added.
