If Vasool Raja MBBS gets stuck in the courts, leading to a name change as Nice Doctor MBBS or Very Good Doctor MBBS, the doctor team would get happy with Kamalhassan. Currently Vasool Raja MBBS is in the courts for a case filed by doctor association, accusing that the name Vasool Raja MBBS, is a deliberate pull down on the doctors. Well, this is democracy and we are not for/against whomsoever having an issue with the names. Imagine the toast of parody that lost.
Should there be a automatic case filing system in the US against those who make a parody on someone/profession/ celebrity status/recent happening, then Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O’Brien and other such midnight talk show people will be the worst hit. What’s amazing about these shows is that they make a parody out of these things so flat that everyone around the globe enjoys them. A parody needn’t always be looked at with a negative outlook. It’s a way to get people understand the truth in a play way method. Who wouldn’t have not enjoyed the jokes of Jay Leno on Clinton, Saddam, Pope, Arnold, The lord of the rings, JK Rowling, Mike Moore and so so on. Have we taken these celebrities/events for granted since then. It’s a way of laughing out the issues but still getting the focus that there are these issue up-the-sleeves to be dealt with.
Vasool Raja MBBS, may be a direct parody on the doctors and their profession. But do you, me or Kamalhassan think that doctors are just money sucking machines. It’s been one of the professions thats most respected of all times. It’s still the most pure form of service to mankind. Every by-pass surgery done at the Madras Medical Mission gets back a life, Every spinal tinkering at Apollo Hospitals gets someone moving, every ambulance flying around is zipping to save a life, a family and a lovable human. We salute them just like how Kamal alongwith the skeleton salute, in the image above. But, does that alone mean all doctors are demi-gods. A few exceptions are everywhere. Why shouldn’t someone make a comical mock on them.
The worst part, we know that Vasool Raja MBBS is a re-make of Munna Bhai MBBS. Watch the Hindi version and you would join me saying, there is absolutely nothing that rigs the doctors and their values. It infact displays a new fictional approach to hospitality.
Such cases, augmenting all over about the movies aren’t a welcoming move. Let’s have a system that would cleanse, or at least think of cleansing, through parodies. Else we will be become vegetables, of having arts like movies that doesn’t reflect the society. Whats the point, then.
