Well.. read on…
As many knows.. infact all of us knows; The Kings Speech has notched the top awards in this year acedamy awards. It has been praised by Critics all over the world in showing the King Georage VI stuttering, his friendship with speech therapist, the problems & also the solution (curable using good therapist).
But, how does it brought a change in the “Aam Admi” mindset ?? I see hardly any change…This is the review quote by one of the Critic “Watching a full-length feature film about King George VI’s speech impediment may not seem like the most exciting thing to do on a Friday evening.” However, he later summed up as “Dramatically filmed and proudly wearing a badge of self-importance, The King’s Speech is one of the most sumptuous films you’ll see”.
But my question (?) is how many have seen it apart for stammers or their relative or may be their friends. In my case apart of me, none of the my friends (Non – Stammers) have seen the movie. Well, the reason may be “me (A stammerer)” being one of the friend (OR) [Actual Reason] since movies are for entertainment and TKS has no adventure (Like 127 hrs, thts also a True Story) nor Fiction (like Inception, a awesome movie)…
Some people (only a few) are watching/downloading it since it’s a Oscar winner. This fact have thought me to believe that hardly anyone caring for the Stammering and its difficulties… (OR) should they ? Still, number of people downloading “G 3” in India is more than TKS….
I would just like to ask how many your friend have watched the movie without your recommendation or how many have them recomended you the movie to watch. In my case the answer is ZERO for all the question. I am also not recommending as many seems to ignore it 🙁
Please provide your input..
