Is “Generation Aami” Always Right Or Our Parents Know Us Better?
‘The Generation Aami’ movie by Mainak Bhaumik is buzzing in the town with an offbeat but relatable and controversial topic of perusing one’s dream without his parents’ consent. Presuming from the trailer it can be said that the movie represents the teenager protagonist Apu’s struggle to follow his dream of becoming a singer, opposing his parents dream for him to go for IIT.
Mostly the viewers will support the protagonist as the trailer claims, but let’s be honest… how many of we have not dreamt for being a guitarist, a super model, a film star, a painter or even a cook? Have many of us not thought starting a music band with all the group of close friends, with whom we used to sit, smoke and had some attractive political discussion over a cup of tea? With due respect to every occupation, let’s talk practically… just knowing how to play a guitar or how to use the brush will make us a guitarist or a painter? The outer world seems so fascinating to us at the age of growing, can we actually get the logical idea of how much dedication, passion and sacrifice is demanded from us at that tender age? Breaking the dream? Yeah! that is the point when our parents come to rescue us. They brought us up, when we are floating in the air with the charm of the world; they know what we are capable of and what not. When parents knock us at our brain by rejecting our proposed careers, we are terming it as the “generation conflict”. However, very few will accept that this generation conflict or the pressure of our parents have controlled us from ruining our careers.
Persuing into an academic career may not sound so fancy but is demands much less hard work and competition in comparing to that of actor. Yes it is a common path, but this is a plus point too. At least we know what to do and our parents are driving us to this just because they want a protective future of us.
Yes there are extra-ordinaries and exceptional; but how can everyone become exceptional?
Hoping the movie to cover all the perspective of the ‘generation conflict’ and not to be a biased one.
Here’s our perspective. What’s yours? Let us know in the comment box .
