The fun of watching a movie gets doubled if you are surrounded with right people in the theatre, right? A dialogue which may not be so powerful in reality can also leave you moved if it is followed by an apt comment from your fellow mate or is accompanied by their silly yet crazy expressions. This is why we try to choose the craziest possible company while planning to go to the theatres.
Well, not all people are the same and so aren't their behaviours while watching a movie. Here is a list of different kinds of people; judgemental, sentimental, forceful, impossible, irritating and every other kind, that you may find seated around you in the cinema hall. Rush through them and see how you remember some or the other of your friends as you read each caption.
As if these people buy tickets not to watch the movie but to find a few hours' sound sleep.
They probably find getting scarred embarrassing and so try to cover up the fear by fake laughter which is clearly identifiable.
These people seem to critically analyze the movie. They have their own suggestions of how the scene should have been for almost every part of the movie.
These crying babies not only make their parents feel embarrass but also make you want to run hell out of the theater no matter how good the movie is going. You also sometimes end up cursing the parents of such babies for bringing them along.
It is really very annoying when most important scene of the movie is going on and your ears are constantly drawn towards the disgusting sounds of munching pop-corns or knocking back of coke.
You are sometimes unlucky enough to listen talks about others' maids back at their homes or about how careless and irresponsible their husbands/wives have become; all in the midst of a movie you have been waiting for so long to watch.
You will definitely see some joined heads in the front rows no matter which genre the movie belongs to. Be it a horror, philosophical or a family drama based movie, these people always find their way.
A movie is well watched only when it is accompanied with a bang on hooting though sometimes you happen to miss out a few important dialogues due to their noise ad a few scenes due to their bouncing heads.
There are people who do not care to put their cellphones on a vibration mode while watching the movie. They find it absolutely okay to hear the ringing sound with every incoming call or message. They, very loyally respond to all calls and texts even at the cost of missing out the climax scenes.
Just as soon the lovers break up or the hero is beaten hard or something unpleasant happens in the movie, their heart gets over-weighed and they start shedding tears as if everything was real and crying would alter scenes.
They invariably put themselves as well you in an awkward situation by bringing adult ones (parents or grandparents) or younger ones along for watching a movie which is totally inappropriate to watch with that kind of company.
They seem to be lost to some other world. When an ultimate hilarious joke is cracked on the screen and the whole theater is filled with laughter, they manage to maintain their freezed look as if they are into an open-eyed meditation.
It is probably the toughest job to settle a kid who constantly asks questions as of why and how after watching an adult scene.
