It has been a rather bittersweet year for cinema lovers with theatres being shut down on a national scale. Even though the OTT platforms have upped their games with the release of noteworthy shows, nothing beats the experience of watch films on the big screen. The present times almost reminds us of an angry David Lynch saying, “If you’re playing the movie on a telephone, you will never in a trillion years experience the film. You’ll think you have experienced it, but you’ll be cheated. It’s such a sadness, that you think you’ve seen a film’.
It is anger and sadness laced together that still gives us hopes of a future where watching films in theatres is a possibility. And, maybe these hopes will come true after all.
