Is Re-incarnation of Lovers an Obsolete Plot ?
Description: Reincarnation is treated in the film as something that has a special relevance for lovers. True love must be rewarded ; if not in this life then in the next. A romantic belief in reincarnation can only reinforce the idyllic notion of love. Fulfilment in love can wait almost indefinitely; the lovers may not unite in this life; nevertheless, they are meant for each other and will unite in the life hereafter. The trend was set by Kamal Amrohi in 1949 with the film "Mahal", and the tradition was on. "Milan","Mehbooba","Kudrat"made in 70s followed the traditional suit, and they were effusively accepted.
But, in recent times this plot does, no longer,stimulate the nerves of the modern film makers. Is it because :-
1.Our too much materialistic outlooks?
2.indulgence in corporate culture?
3. Our greater power in reasoning things?
4.entitlement of enjoying more liberty than our predecessors?
5. free-sex enabling us fulfill our physical union in one life time?
