Sunday afternoon is a movie time. Me and Kaustubh , saw a different movie today. We saw this guy coming with a huge box which has cinema in it. Till he had lunch, we were in queue. I had never seen such a movie, was curious to see what is the mystery, why kids run this man (use to, now with computer games and multiplexes etc this is passé)
The show started! I saw ads cut from newspaper, right from Priyanka Chopra at some opening ceremony, Movie ads in newspaper, some news (in marathi). I initially thought that isnt it a great idea to show ads before the movie begins, but after the ads, there was no movie!
As I watched he played some music. The show got over in about 40 secs. All I paid is Rs 10!
Now it was kaustubhs’ turn to watch the same movie! Soon, we pulled some crowd for him, few more joined in this NEW way (actually a very old way) of watching cinema.
His name is Shahnawaaj. Age – close to 70, his eyes had visible cataract. We were at Sahakarnagar and he lives near Dandekar pool (Pune), so he walks few kms everyday,carrying this machine, spreading joy!
