Recently, the man who worships Bal Thackerey as God, held a screening of his new movie Enthiran for his Hindi Cinema friends. But the screening did not go very well. Towards the end of the movie, the sound system crashed. So the whooshing sound which comes when thalaivar waves his finger could only be heard in n-3 speakers.
This got Resul Pookutty all upset. From that upset mind came a brilliant idea to enhance Government corruption to new areas. What he wants is a sound police – not as in police with sound mind, but police which will check the sound system in various theaters. This is a perfect prescription for corruption, just like all the other regulatory agencies we have who give checks or approves based on the ‘fee’ they get.
So instead of introducing one more avenue for corruption, let the industry self regulate. Let a watch dog agency be created using private money. They can even get a dog. Lets spare the tax payer from the intricacies of Dolby Digital and DTS vagaries.
