Movies are a source of entertainment. When we watch films, we seek a relief and respite from the day to day troubles that bother us. For a few hours we wish to forget about what we need to do back home. They provide us with ideas. They reflect the culture of a certain section of the society and are also indicative of what’s happening around us. We laugh at ourselves through the movies we see. We cry when they touch us. There’s some amount of negativity which is also there in movies just as it is there in the society.
Not all movies are made to entertain. Some are serious and more about the art of cinema.
Movies, especially commercial movies make money. Some make it to the awards list. They are watched by a niche audience.
But in general cinema is meant to entertain audience.
It is a stress reliever. At home too, we can entertain ourselves through movies. Any time we feel sad, depressed or stressed…we can take pop-break.
