In Cinema we get engrossed in themes like action, thrill and romance. The Cinema also distorts the realities of life. Viewers rarely get a real life perspective in Cinema. Youth get inspired to act upon what they observe in Cinema. Many school killings use weapons by susceptible teenagers are because of the fantasy ideas shown in Cinema. It is really difficult for us to sit with the entire family & watch the modern movies.
Some films are visualized so bad that it passes on evil messages to the audiences. This results in giving rise to various types of crimes. Some films affect the morality of our society.
