  1. Congrats @Cap and @Eric the Friendly Ghost on the promotion!!!! Well deserved
  2. Not in Maharashtra where they will remain closed for at least another month Mumbai and Maharashtra are the biggest money makers for the film industry.
  3. With news channel providing such drama and comedy will people even go watch movies when they can watch the clowns on the news channels. Anyways do you think they will allow theatres to operate from October @charlie Jatinder? I suspect that even if theatres open they wont do that well at least for the first few months, say until Christmas.
  4. Yup new unlock guidelines just came out from the centre. Cinemas will remain shut till at least end of September
  5. Oh god I still cannot process this. It’s just so sudden, I had no idea he was battling cancer and that it was this bad. The world has lost a talented actor who could have achieved so much more. I hope his family and fans find peace. 😔
  6. Looks like audiences in India at least will not flock to theatres even if they reopen according to a recent survey. Only 6% of people said they will go see movies maybe once or more whereas 77% of those surveyed said they will not go even if cinemas opened. Cinemas in India have not reopened yet since lockdown started on March 22. News outlet have been reporting that they may not open in September either but some are saying that single screen theatres will be allowed but multiplexes wont be.
  7. Are you sure because pretty much every news outlet is reporting today that cinemas will remain closed in September.
  8. I highly doubt Taare Zameen Par is gonna make it, I doubt Lagaan might as well (it doesn't deserve to be this high anyways). On the other hand great movies like Company ( a far superior Ajay Devgan movie than Drishyam), Satya, Page 3, Ship of Theseus, Paan Singh Tomar etc are gonna miss the list.
  9. Apart from gym/restaurants (dine in)/cafe/religious places/cinemas/schools and colleges, everything else is open and running normally. I think offices are still restricted in terms of % of people that can physically work in the office building. Suburban trains and metro is still closed for general public but suburban trains are running for essential workers. Taxis and autos are running again. I think some places like restaurants, cinemas, and gyms will be given permissions to open again beginning of September. Most people got fed up with the lockdown and now there is hardly any fear in people now. Markets are crowded again, social distancing is nonexistent, fewer and fewer people are wearing masks now and many who do wear masks dont cover their noses making the masks completely useless.
  10. Americans are not alone in this stupidity. Just last week it was reported that at least 36 people died after drinking hand sanitizer in India with police suspecting that many more cases have gone unreported. This was just one state in the country.
  11. lol me too, people in the west dont realize how shitty our system and our situation is simply because we have a democracy. But in regards to your last line, its not necessarily that Trump is better than Modi, its that our system itself is bad. If Trump was in India he would be just as bad as Shah and Modi because our system would allow him to be whereas in US he is restricted in a lot of what he can do. Similarly if Modi was in US he wouldn't be as terrible as he is in India simply because he wouldnt be able to get away with a lot of stuff that he could do in India. Anyway's we are getting a bit off topic here with Indian politics, if we want to discuss this further lets take it to the India thread and keep this one for Coronavirus.
  12. Imagine a Trump but with more political acumen like Mitch Mcconell, more bigoted like David Duke. And now imagine this Trump with even larger support base who are far more rabid, with almost all of media as your lapdog, with complete control over police and other federal body which you use against your opponents, with even the judiciary in your pocket. This Amit Shah guy is much worse than even this. He is religious fascist who took part in and orchestrated communal riots which resulted in 1000's of dead people, have had part in fake encounters and multiple scams. He had a major hand in formulating discriminatory policies like CAA and scrapping Article 370 in Kashmir which have led to months long protests all over the country (which only stopped due to the Coronavirus) as well as many dead people including communal riots in the national capital (where he had control of the police and allowed the police to ignore atrocities against the minority with the police going so far as taking part in the atrocities themselves). He is also trying to implement other policies like NPR (national population registry), which will potentially strip untold number of people of their citizenship and send them to internment (read concentration) camps. At best it will cause headaches to millions of people and strip hundreds of thousands of their rights and make them second class citizens in their own country. This NPR combined with the CAA act effectively means that only muslims will be targetted and sent to camps. In effect India is trying to become more like China.
  13. The failure of the lockdown and one of the major factor for the economic downturn is government incompetence rather than over reaction imo. A lot of the issues around lockdown such as the migrant issue could have been avoided if the government had a solid plan at the beginning. But instead we got a hastily and last minute announced lockdown. A lot of economic issues could have been mitigated had the government taken concrete measures. Blame US politics all we want but at least they came up with policies that helped people and small businesses. Instead all we got was PM cares money blackhole where the donations got siphoned into buying MLA’s and an economic relief package that was completely useless. Other countries also used the lockdown to significantly ramp up medical facilities whereas we hardly did that. Our testing capacity and rates were very low in the beginning and for a long time as well. Its only recently that testing has ramped up but it still lags if per capita testing is considered. Other countries had implemented strict lockdowns too but they succeeded in flattening the curve. It’s not due to over reaction or lockdown that we find ourselves in this pickle, its government incompetence.
  14. While it is true that a lot of people are asymptomatic or only have mild symptoms, there are still thousands upon thousands that do suffer enough that they need hospitalization. And these hospitalizations are not cheap. I have heard from multiple people, including relatives and friends as well as from news that a stay at the hopsital costs lakhs of rupees (huge amount of money for average Indians). Most people in India cannot afford that. One of my relative had to pay 3 lakh for few days stay at hospital. Another aquaintance had to spend 7 lakh. A friend of a friend had to spend 11 lakh at the hospital. These are not small amounts Not to mention the studies coming out discovering long term brain/lung/heart damage. That alone should scare everyone including those with mild cases. And obviously there are those who have lost their lives. India’s and the worlds death toll is increasing everyday. Just because most people are fed up and not following safety measures does not mean tgat it is OK to do so. In fact situation is more dangerous now than it was ever before. When the lockdown started in India we had a total of 500 or so confirmed cases, right now we are getting 55000+ confirmed cases every single day!
