Joker, the most talked about movie is all set to be released in India and surprisingly it has no cut scenes by CBFC but some mutes here and there. The movie was considered to be ‘dangerous’ by critics due to the real world violence shown.
The DC comic-series has stepped onto a darker side with the plot ruled by the JOKER which no more seems to be funny. Phoenix, as joker has been explored from its origin and has even worse mental conditions this time. As a child he has always been the one who seeks attention and love but never got the same, this turned him into a psycho and he indulged in the mass violence crime scenes.
The critics are pinpointing the movie for it can promote homicidal conditions in people. America sees such violence attacks every other week by some ARTHUR like character and we need to feel sympathy for him for the society didn’t treat him right and it’s not his fault, said one critic. In 2012 while the time of release of Dark knight rises, there was a mass shooting at a theatre in Aurora and the families of the victims wrote letters to theatres, asking not to show Joker and also raised concerned about gun reforms in US. Some critics are considering this as a brutal movie starring a white terrorist figure taking revenge on a society that rejects him, and seeking sympathy for his actions. Besides all this, many want to see this movie as just a movie and nothing else because movies are made to portray only that what happens in the society.
JOKER is an American psychological thriller movie starring JOAQUIN PHOENIX as the main lead, directed by Tod Phillips, the movie was supposed to be released on oct 4 but the release is preponed now to oct 2 being a national holiday. The movie is going to clash with Hrithik roshan’s WAR and it will be interesting to see the hype and reactions of the audience.
