Re: Ashdoc's movie review---Secret superstar

according to this reviewer , the movie is nothing but the sob stories of participants of TV programmes like 'indian idol' packaged into a longer version---a movie . in programmes like 'Indian idol' a singing participant comes and tells of his or hers sad story . the judges bring out a few tears to emotionally entangle the audience . and everyone claps loudly for the songs sung by the participant because we have become emotional after hearing the story of how the participant had to struggle until he or she came upto the big stage .

all this is a pre packaged formula that the TV channels use for the programmes . the movie just expands it into a bigger somewhat more grander more emotional ( abusive father and all ) version . nothing new in it .
