    It’s Okay, That Character Was Tone Deaf Anyway

    | Birmingham, UK |

    (I’m working in a video rental store renting out Bollywood films when a customer asks about a particular film.)

    Customer: “Hi! Can you tell me if this is a good family film?”

    (He hands me a Bollywood film called Deewaar.)

    Me: “Not really. I mean, it’s got an 18 certificate rating on it, for starters.”

    Customer: “Oh. What is it about?”

    Me: “It’s about the son of an Indian POW in a prison camp in Pakistan who attempts to rescue him.”

    Customer: “Well, that can’t be a bad family film. Have you seen it?”

    Me: “Well, I watched a scene where the main character is fighting a bad guy on a train. He sticks his head out of the window and an incoming pole cuts his head off clean.”

    Customer: “… does it have good songs in the film?”

    Me: “…”

    (Note: Bollywood films mainly come with songs. Apparently, people just watch these films for the songs…)
