One thing that I have noticed being repeated in many of these movies is the Hero slapping the Heroine. Its in almost each and every one of Rajanikanth movie. And also in some of the recently released movies. They make it look as if slapping a female is OKAY. The ridiculous part in the movie I watched today was, the actress confesses her love to the actor. And the actor for no reason in particular slaps the actress. And then starts a song, where both of them remember the slap over and over again and behave as if it was a romantic kiss instead of a forceful slap. I seriously did not get this part. Is slapping some kind of a foreplay? Am I living in a different dimension or did the Director have some weird ideas about romance?
My hubby says that in tamil movies they like to show male dominance and hence the slapping. Beats me! Isn't that cowardice?
There are SO MANY Rajanikanth followers and devotees (calling them fans would be belittling them), I wonder how many people have been influenced by such scenes.
