I saw Dilwale FDFS this morning, 11 am. Even for a weekday morning, the hall was half full, which is VERY good for this area! The audience was very responsive, lots of laughs. Folks were smiling as they left.
I had tried something different, for me, this time around. Since the very first promo, I've avoided watching any promos, music, interviews, events, involved with the movie. I wanted to see it as unspoiled as possible, and I'm glad I did! SRK was delightful, Kajol was good, even the "kids" were OK. I often don't understand Indian humor, but I was glad the audience was enjoying it. I thought the songs were lovely. I'm looking forward to seeing it again, maybe I'll have some other notes after that.
As I said, I've stayed out of all threads connected to the movie, so I hope you guys have been behaving yourselves! I assumed that either other admins would see any problems, or else members could hit the Report button. Just since I've got back I've noticed that some folks aren't responding very well to the few negative comments. Remember that every member has a right to POLITELY express their feelings, as long as they aren't too aggressive about spamming other folks' threads with negativity. However, they have to expect that others might disagree, and also have the right to say so, POLITELY. Nobody needs to be scolded, deleted, or defended as long as everyone is polite.
