While films take inspiration from real life incidents and they design their political characters from the real life politicians, the political parties are no different. They tend to use cinema wherever they can for their own use. This was witnessed in the state of Andhra Pradesh when the statewide bandh took place yesterday for ‘Special Status’.
It is a culture of sorts to come up with songs that speak of revolution or reflect the plight of the people but instead one could hear the number ‘Aa gattunna vuntava Naganna….’ from ‘Rangasthalam’. In the film it is a song which comes while campaigning for Ram Charan’s brother and it worked really well with the audience.
The same song was being played by the political parties as part of their Bandh protests and there is a chance that all parties will own it. The perfect lyrics and the beat value of the number struck a chord with the protestors and they felt it was an apt number to convey what their demand is. That’s how cinema helps the society folks!
