Daily Prompt: Fourth Wall
You get to spend a day at your favorite movie.Tell us which one it is– and what happens to you while you are there?
Yesterday I watched my favorite movie on YouTube, the title of the movie is, “Shaapmochone ” meaning is , “Release from a curse.” It is a Bengali movie, I love watching them on YouTube .
It’s the story of a young man whose great grandpa was cursed by his music teacher. Great grandpa was singing and playing a musical instrument in a big hall, where all the renowned people were gathered to listen to his music. The music teacher heard the voice of his student, he felt proud, he went inside without invitation, he did not care , he started talking to his pupil( i.e great grandpa. )
His pupil denied knowing him and told him to leave. This was an insult he did not expect. In his anger, he told him, “I am cursing you, in future, none of your descendants will ever be able to play any kind of instrument or sing, if they try they will either die at a young age or will be an invalid rest of their life.”
Great grandpa died soon after the curse and from then on any member of his family who tried to sing or play a musical instrument either died or were invalid.
The young man’s older brother went blind after he tried to sing and play music. The main character of this movie was the young man. When he realized it was a serious curse, he decided not to pursue a career in music.
I think my presence in this movie will be to figure out, how I can release these descendants from the curse. So I go in and I suggest that they(the descendants) can get release from the curse, if they feed at least two poor families and in return pray for them so they are not cursed any more.The only problem is the script is written already. How will my presence help.
I think I will go on the set, and provide some food and drink to the actors. Uttam Kumar (The main character) gives the impression of a nice man, so I’ll follow him everywhere. If he notices I’m not supposed to be there he’ll get the guards to throw me out. I don’t think I will feel comfortable inside the movie. The language will not be a problem, my mother tongue is Bengali.
I can see I will come out angry and put a curse on the people who put me there. No it will not work. I’d rather sit in front of my computer and watch the movie again!!
This movie is long just watch a few scenes until the teacher enters in the hall and curses the singer.
