Kurbaan—- anti Muslims?
Saw Karan Johar’s Kurban the other day.
I am neither a film critic nor I am trying to change my profession to journalism but feel compelled to write my views on just one aspect of this so called super hit movie of the year.
These are purely my views. No offence meant to any person or religion
No comments on the film/story/acting/direction/music etc.
Its just that I feel that the movie has shown Muslims in a poor light.
After seeing this movie many people will become wary of having a Muslim as their neighbour or for that matter befriending a Muslim.
and every one will generalize from this and all Muslims will be seen with a look of suspicion.
None of the Muslim characters shown in the movie (except for Riyaaz played by Vivek Oberoi or Saif that too only when he comes to know that Kareena is carrying his child) has any positive aspect to their personality, no white or even lighter shade to their credit.
The only thing that the movie has highlighted is how some Muslims can play on people’s life and emotions to fulfill their ambitions and take their revenge.
We do have 26/11 of Mumbai, bomb blasts in various cities of Mumbai as live examples of what can terrorists (incidentally all of them are Muslims) do to harm the human lives. so I am not denying that almost all terrorist acts have been committed by them
but when it comes to showing it in a movie which is viewed by every one ( we had many foreigners watching this movie in the theater) I think some thing should be there in the movie which can leave a positive impact on people.
I wonder won’t people will think twice before renting out premises to them? Won’t they feel what if they plan terrorist activities in the premises ?
More so I saw this movie sitting in USA which is the basis of this movie.
Nothing in the movie generates sympathy for Islam ( Am I sounding like pro Muslim and pro Islam)
but its just that I feel bad for all those people are good at heart and have nothing to do with terrorism or with this particular section of society.
They may have to suffer for the deeds of some perverted and sadistic lot.
But I suppose this is another harsh reality of life. some one else pays for the deeds of others
