Barua is yet another self-appointed custodian of morality. Last thing we need is another one of those ! Spare us

Syed Firdaus Ashraf,

Have you ever read any history? You have come up with some major conclusions about Independence movement and Gandhiji. What is your problem with Gandhi?

Kudos to Jahnu Barua
by yasmin on Oct 04, 2005 12:12 AM

I am extremely proud of Jahnu Barua. Being an Assamese, I can relate to his experience. I have had the good fortune of seeing most of his movies. I admire him for his tenacity and belief in his audience. He makes good movies because he feels his audience deserves it. That is a mark of respect and the audience needs to reciprocate this respect.

Very well answered article with high values. Todays generation certainly needs people like these to convey messages as they dont seem to have time for basic values but pop culture. India will not be India if Gandhiji did not fight for our freedom through non-violence.

Jai Hind

I thank Mr. Barua
by Ujala Sharma on Oct 01, 2005 12:16 PM

Really appreciating.Before reading this interview,I was in the impression that all filmmakers have forgotten their responsibilties they have towards their society and nation.I am a young girl from an avant-garde family.But I have stopped watching films because I do not find any great feature in these films. Even if directors have some valuable message,they present that thought in a very cheap manner.And it seems that they theirselves are unable to understand the theme and its moral.Unlike past films,they are unable to differentiate a lady vilian and a heroine on the screens.So how can one expect them to distinguish between good and bad.And it is the worst when we see our friends running blindly on the same paths which these stupid films/albums are showing them.Films produced today are the major causes of injecting violence and disrespect among youths.Women respect in society is also affected from this.I fully agree with Mr.Barua that just to make money most of the filmmakers are destroying the good values and thoughts which otherwise can be the best reward.But it is annoying that these people are free to sell these drugs.No punishment for such a big crime!!!.Instead,Great Profits..
