Hi Everyone! Ali Mustafa here. I am really excited about this project because we are going to discuss things we already know but have never viewed them from a different lens. I have watched countless Hollywood and Bollywood movies but have never asked myself the question as to why a certain thing is represented in a particular way. After watching a movie, I would unconsciously adopt a view that whatever is being presented before my eyes is real. This is how things should happen. And this project, I believe, is the way through which we can decode the messages hidden behind those running pictures. I follow Sci-Fi and fiction movies like a crazy person. The last film I watched was “Tenet”, a movie written and directed by Cristopher Nolan. However, in non-fiction my favourite film or as I should say the trailer is “Zindagi Tamasha (Circus of Life)” written and directed by Sarmad Khoosat. The idea regarding Mullah’s that is present in society, this movie tries to represent it; however, there is a severe backlash from the in the country due to which film is currently banned. I really hope the movie gets unbanned. I will end my comment by telling my favourite song, and I think it is much needed in this semester that students listen to this song. The song is “Smile” by Jimmy Durante.
