Indian cinema has the power to influence the thinking of the people. It has changed society and social trends and has introduced new fashion in the community. Films can go a long way to arouse national consciousness and utilize the youth's energy in social reconstruction and nation-building. If the cinema industry produces noble and inspiring films, the cinema will be a trustworthy philosopher and guide of the masses. Cinema has remained the most crucial source of media for mass communication.
The media has produced much as it touches the innermost layer of man. Thus, it will be wrong to say that cinema is like a mirror that reflects the hopes, aspirations, contradictions, and frustration of society, leading to an attachment of social responsibility to it. It becomes essential to avoid the stories which lead to the erosion of social and moral values.
The influence of cinema cannot be underestimated as it helps in the learning process. Thus what is seen on the cinema screen is automatically absorbed by those who see the picture. The person laughs at films and cries with them: our dress, hairstyle shape, and footwear matter with cinema.
We all know that the effect of the cinemas is on the youth and illiterate. From the 30s to 60s, Indian cinema has been expert in influencing the youth icon. It has presented and tackled issues from burning issues to freedom to unemployment, from dowry to women's emancipation, from poverty to exploitation, from social conflict to national integration. With the transformation of society, the issue confronting it on changing, and the themes adopted for filmmaking.
It is worthy of mentioning the names of the films that have touched society through their sensual massages. However, the cinemas have lost their educative and social aspects. The scenes that violate the rules and regulations are to be avoided as they significantly impact the children's minds. Over time, the movies also positively affect the viewers like 'THREE IDIOTS,' RANG DE BASANTI,' TARE ZAMEN PER' etc. These movies portrayed the need for youth icons and how to indulge them in daily social work and not get brain drained by Anglo Indians.
AARAKSHAN' depicted the controversial caste-based reservation policy in the Indian government and job and educational institutions. Hence this lesson should be ensured by lying down guidelines for the people involved in its making, and there must be stringent action against those who violet them.
At certain times, instead of presenting life to the people of India, their lifestyle is altered by the films that they see because it dramatically affects the people's real lives. Hence, the filmmakers need to understand that they, too, have a responsibility and must not forget their duty toward society.
On page three, journalism feature reporting and personality reporting are essential. Instead of omitting them, they are well entertained because they are the front line news in the newspaper and the tabloid pictures. Hindi cinemas had the golden period from the thirties, and it is extending till now.
