"My understanding is that each of us expects the film to satisfy us on a basic level. If that satisfaction is high, we willingly forgive any supposed flaws. Likewise, if that satisfaction is not met at all we pick on goofs and rationalise that those are the reasons we don't like the film for. " Truer words were never spoken, Josh.
How many weddings have you been to and in how many of them do you actually feel any kind of involvement? There are deep and profound vows but neither the bride nor the groom understands them (sometimes we wonder if even the priest has a clue). They look to the sky, and even on the cloudiest of days they claim to have seen the Arundhati nakshatram. And regardless of how well you wish for the couple, you usually get really bored by the time the two hundred and fifty second photograph is posed for. Weddings are dreary affairs mostly.
That's also, incidentally, how Telugu films are.....
