Sue Indian Cinema Producer and Director

-- An Open letter to the President of the International Rugby Board .
( A satire on unrealsitic scenes in Indian cinema ).

Indian Cinema has grieviously insulted and outraged the sensibilities of all Rugby players and fans . In a Tamil hit movie,the lead actor plays the role of a person of slightly above average height and physique . He is portrayed as singlehandedly tackling an entire Rugby team, sending the Rugby players flying one by one, causing them serious injuries, and emerging triumphant.
Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that a Rugby player is 5 times as strong as an average adult . And he is much fasterthan the average man. And a master of zig-zag running . A Rugby player can scatter 10 guys like me , like 10-pins in a bowling alley. Ditto for , say , 6 ,well-built modern actors, or modern young men of slightly above average height and physique. Perhaps a Karate black belt might be able to take on a Rugby player or 2. But certainly not an entire Rugby team.
This is a gross insult to the glorious image of Rugby players. I request you , the President of the IRB, to mulct themalicious producer and director of the pathetic movie, in substantial damages.
A Sports Fan.


  1. There's a youtube clip of a Tamil movie which shows this guy being connected to a high voltage power line. NOthing happens to him. And then he says someting to the tune of "I am not afraid of current. Current is afraid of me"

  2. ha ha ... hilarious post! and funny comment from narendra shenoy too. a whole group of karate dudes couldn't take on one Anniyan though :-)
    best punishment is to ask these heroes and directors / producers to play in a rugby / american football match with the professionals. that will be fun :-D

  3. @Naren : Wow !! that's way out !!
    @Ranga : Gr8 idea indeed !! They deserve to be walloped by a rugby or football team, for insulting the intelligence of the general public.

  4. but ram don't you think that the public loves these kind of far-fetched, heroic acts because of which the producers put them in the movies, the scenes in the movies are basically for the taget audience who are to see them and not for people like you and me who will critically evaluate them, it all boils down to what sells, does it not? so who would you fault ?? - the producers who dish out all this kind of nonsense or the public who lap it up??

  5. Well-said, Dimple. Yes, the public is equally to blame. We need to add Logic and Rartional Thinking Practice to our educational system. Pity is the system is so bad now, kids might simply memorize this and regurgitate in the exams . Which means ban exams -- another topic.
    PS Are you the Dimple in WI group?

  6. hehe.. if you want to lose the hair in ur head, one sure fire way is to nitpick the logic in indian movies. why rugby players? even a karate champ will find it hard to take on any more than 2 hefties in an unarmed fight. and yet we see our actors mowing through pyramids of rowdies. idhellam cinemaale sagajam only. only option for those who expect sense in movies is to enjoy the parts where it is really fun and try to enjoy the audience reaction for such exaggerated scenes.

  7. yes ram, i m the same dimple - dimple pujara from lagos, nigeria, well i will be missing you at WI, wish you all the best for your new assignment and hope to catch up with you soon,

  8. @Sangu : LOL, yes, true.
    @Dimple : Thanq very much.
