Film is a passion in India. I have vainly tried to go to the theatre on three occasions. All the screenings were sold out! Even on Tuesday! Now I know I should book online or just buy the tickets in advance. I have bought several local films, though. I’m amazed to discover such a passion for heroism in India. A Tamil Nadu star would easily humiliate all the Hollywood heroes. I can see Bruce Willis, Willy Smith, Schwarzenegger, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise all fleeing from Kamal Haasan, a man who can defeat as many adversaries as Bruce Lee could in all his movies. Kamal is more likely to be compared to John Wayne or Humphrey Bogart than to any of the contemporary Western film stars.
