Fiction Or Non-Fiction in Disguise?

Most of my close friends do know about my particular habit of going off for movies...i love watching movies...any kind of movies...if the mood strikes in, i would engulfed myself in a good romance movie, when i feel like it, i would go for an action movies and so on...if the movie is not based on a true story (as stated), they would have this fine prints stating that the movie was indeed fictional with fictional characters and not related to anyone...owh yeah rite...

I have my own view on this particular statement...for me all movies are real...it is actually a silver screen interpretation of what had been going on around us...eventho they mentioned that it was indeed a fictional character, i dont think that the movie itself was entirely fiction...someone, somewhere in this world might feel related to the movie and saying ~owh the movie is just like my life story (sobbing endlessly-if it is a sad story lah)~

Movies are man-made 'fiction'...but is it a total fiction? personally i seriously don't agree with the statement that it is a fiction...and i think most housewives (no offence) dont think that it is a fiction...they somehow have so many times in their hand (after handling the dishes and all) to dwell on movies or dramas shown in the tv...out of the blue, they feel connected to it...and here comes the blow...comparing their life to the ones in the tv...thinking, if it happens in the silverscreen, it has a high percentage that it could happen in real life...erkkk...back then i was begging to differ...but now i see the lights in different view...

Why is that? somehow i think that everyone life story deserve an airtime as a soap opera...hahahaha...seriously...i do think that...if we see movies in the market nowadays (or even back then), if they are portraying characters in the present time (as the movie was made), they indeed throw in every single adaptation that they could think off from their surroundings...maybe it is a mixture of more than 2 individuals...since i am now going for malaysian products, i would take the overexposed popular soap malay drama 'Nurkasih' (i admit i was a constant follower as well)...someone told me that her life is almost as portrayed in the drama...not the exact settings and all, but the overall content of the drama...girl meets boy then girl sacrifice a lot for the boy then boy go find another only to realise the girl is the one he should stick to and the other girl stepped in to snatch the boy and the girl relent and the boy realise he had to make a choice and was held in between the non-solving problem...a little thorough...how many would go on and say that their life story can be related to this particular drama (owh i see people raising their hands)...exactly my point...

Dramas/ Movies are made in a different settings...but the whole storyline and the characters portrayed are indeed real...you can find them within your own circle or surroudings...i have no doubt about that...honestly, i do believe there was (or still there is) a person as intelligent as Sherlock Holmes...or even science fiction movies such as Star Wars was actually loosely based on a japanese movie by akira something the name...entitled hidden fortress which was loosely based on the japanese samurai's life during the samurai war era...and i read somewhere, it was stated that avatar does have its hidden messages of the current world situation which i kinda agree...

Recently in malaysia, the play 'Natrah' was selling like hot cakes...it was based on a true story of a girl's life of the same name...and not many knew that there was actually a movie loosely based on natrah's life story produced somewhere in the 80's entitled Jasmin...

All in all, i do believe that if it happens in the silverscreen...it might happen in real life...or it has happened to someone, somewhere...and if it happens in a movie, it can happen to you too...owh i love the movie it could happen to you by the way...another senseless ramblings from a senseless guy...
