There are many issues in the hindi film industry that have continually persisted over the last couple years. These issues created a larger problem especially in the 90s. Although movies have been quite a memorable part of our lives growing up. 90’s hindi films lacked the basic concept of logic and realistic approach. The problem with such writing has also persisted in the southern states. Shockingly, for several decades. ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai ‘ is one of the films that is generally hailed by 90’s children but it lacks logic to much extent.
The Chronicles of ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’
Before everyone comes at me for ruining a classic we all grew up enjoying, I’d like to establish that like many 90’s kids, I love Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. It is one of the most favorite films quoted by the millennials. However, when the director criticizes the movie and says that it made no sense, we would also want to join in the fun.
First and foremost, Rani Mukherjee writes 8 letters to her daughter that are supposed to be read on each birthday from 1 years old to 8 years old. Humans have not yet progressed so much that they understand written text as soon as they turn one, which Karan acknowledges. Nobody affiliated with the movie knows what Rahul’s character used to do as a job. As well as, the mystery behind the silent sardar as to why he was silent is unknown. The fact that Anjali wins a basketball match against Rahul doesn’t make sense as she wore the least comfortable outfit for sports, a saree. At last the movie portrays the social convention of beauty, classifying relationships on looks.
The plot choices and story lines in the movie are impossible to co-relate with any layman in real life. A movie that was a memorable part of our childhood but definitely something that didn’t age well.
