Most mainstream movie storylines move at a decent speed and offer a healthy dose of escapist entertainment. The "high-thought" Bangla movies move at little more than a snail's pace and the plots are way too mundane. While I am happy to watch those movies from time to time, we need a much broader variety of entertainment than the pretentiously intellectual variety that too many people seem to think are the dog's bollocks. No offense.
U Pom gana or Africa?
