Rights less than Dogs’ !

I have two dogs and I love them. So, I was suitably impressed by the opening lines in Golmaal 3 (see the pic above):

“The dog used in one of the sequences in the film is a dummy and no harm was done to the real dog.”

How thoughtful! Well, this dog sequence lasted hardly for a few minutes in the whole film. But the poking of fun at the mute and stammering character, continues through out the film. And there is not a single line of apology anywhere. Could the Golmaal-3 team not put just one line at the beginning like: Making fun of people with disabilities is not our intention. However if anyone is hurt, we apologize.” ??

I am amazed at the insensitivity of Mr Rohit Shetty, Mr Dhillin Mehta and SHREE ASHTAVINAYAK CINE VISION LTD- the entire team. There are more than 3-5 crore people, including children, who stammer and who may be mute too. How would they feel sitting through 2.5 hours of the comedy based on their disability? Are films made only for able bodied, “normal” people? Are films certified only for “normal” people and children? And if so, what will they learn from such a movie? that teasing people who stammer or who are mute, is okay? is acceptable?

Do we have rights less than dogs?

    Dear Sachin,
    Good Afternoon,

    Very sentimental blog. Really I am moved. But I do not think we need to be over sentimental about the issue. Need of the our is to fight for our rights, which you have rightly initiated. No one should be allowed to play with our emotions at any cost, thats the message we should spread. Further kindly see Sir , all the revolutions of the world were lead by single persons only and over a period of time others had fallen in line.Finally we should take inspirations from the words of Rabindernath Tagore:

    "Jodi Tor Dak Soone Keu Na Asse
    Tobe Ekla Chalo re… "

    WE SHALL OVERCOME. DEEP IN MY HEART I DO BELIEVE WE SHALL OVERCOME.
