New Delhi. You have to believe that after food, clothing and shelter, if there is a fourth need of people in India, then it is cinema. Yes…don’t be surprised…absolutely a hundred taka…I am telling the truth…times changed…people changed…society changed…situation changed…circumstances changed, but if nothing has changed then it is people’s immense love for cinema. Even today, when people get the news that a film of a certain actor is about to be released, their love for cinema gets so strong that they leave all their work and work behind to watch the film. Cinematic history clearly confirms that the Indian audience sometimes sacrificed everything for the films but yes…at times people also got angry towards the films. People also expressed their displeasure towards the films. When historical facts and truths were ridiculed under the guise of film production, the film consciousness of the people could not tolerate it, so people did not shy away from taking to the streets and raising flags of protest. At the same time, when people liked the films, they did not shy away from making that actor and filmmaker the apple of their eyes.
On the other hand, people associated with film production did nothing to attract the huge audience. Someone made films to protest against the evils prevalent in the society, someone created a flood of patriotic films, someone made films on the corruption prevalent in politics and showed a mirror to the political representatives, while someone made a huge impact by making a film on a love story. To earn profits, someone dived into the sea of headlines by making films on family feuds, but in the last few years, some so-called filmmakers have crossed the limits.
There is no hesitation in saying that these people have misled our new generation (youth) by presenting the dirty, absurd and inferior products of their minds to the society through their films. The amount of condemnation of such misdeeds of these producers is less, but we have to accept the irony that our audience has also shown its disgusting mentality by happily accepting the filth of such producers, but in the last few years The content presented in the name of entertainment on the OTT platform, which is said to be the product of modernity, has crossed all limits.
These materials crossed all limits of obscenity. The commitment to curb such materials has been expressed by the Modi government at the Center on several occasions, but till now no steps have been taken in this direction. The entertainment content presented through OTT has spread filth in the society and may have to suffer huge consequences due to it. Throwing light on all these issues, senior journalist Anant Vijay has written a book titled ‘Over the Top: The Illusion of OTT’, which is in the news right now. This book is in discussion among the readers for its amazing and exclusive content. The demand for this book has reached its peak among the readers. People’s interest towards this book is increasing a lot.
People are liking this book a lot. After all why did you come? Because this book has shown the mirror to all those filmmakers or rather producers who create obscene materials in the name of entertainment. It is impossible to cover the contents of this book of 214 pages in this short article, but in simple words, this book cannot be praised in the context of OTT. In this book, not only the current side effects of OTT have been underlined, but the future impact of it has also been explained. Overall, this book is a mirror for all those filmmakers who have taken the responsibility of taking their film career to heights by taking the help of pornographic materials on their malnourished shoulders.
