I think, we overdo our love for perfection. We will show a fat police officer and the most obvious understanding would be that he is corrupt. (Funny it is), we create metaphors that define people or the eventual turn their characters will take without the slightest care. if you want to show a glamorous woman, our directors cant seem to do that without alcohol, which will also be the reason for her downfall. I think there are enough people who sip on a lil bit of bubbly and do fairly well in their life.
With Barfi, the director really tries to bring in the fact that everybody is entitled to human emotion. Makes an attempt to explain that not everything is black and white. human beings are complex. To think that just because the hero is finally in love with another person he would forget his first crush/love is ideal, but not real. I like to see people who can feel a single emotion at some point. We are complex creatures, obviously we have a lot more than singular thought processes. We have some moments we are down in the dumps, but we rise out of them, eventually. Sadly, most Hindi films have a happy ending, but the end makes you think like its all come to an end. A happily ever after, except without telling us what really happens, how does someone finds this closure.
