“Life is a stage and we are all actors”, this million dollars quotation is said by the person who has the most vital position in this world when it comes to literature; he is none other than William Shakespeare. Yes we all are actors and every person has his/her own story, everyone’s story is completely different from each other, they have their own problems, their own obstacles, their own complications, their own dilemma, their own story. Everyone’s life is full of drama, action and comedy; in short our lives are a movie. The only difference is that a movie runs for 2 or 3 hours however our life movie runs for a lifetime.
Why do we watch movies? The answer is quite detailed. Some times in life we forget who we are, we forget what we are capable of, we forget our motives, we forget our dreams, we forget how to cry, we forget how to express, we forget to joke, we forget to laugh, we forget to smile, we forget ourselves and this is the moment when we forget who we are and what is the reason for our existence. Another question, why does it happens? There are times when the circumstances around us get so tough that they make us weak, the things around us becomes so strong that we end up being feeble, the people around us are so cold hearted that our heart gets shattered into pieces. When such a thing happens, there are only two possibilities; either it will break the person or it will make a person stronger. Movies play a very part in reminding a person about his existence.
If the movie is comedy, it will remind you how to smile, if it is a love story, it will remind you how to love again, if the movie is action, it will remind you how to fight again. When we watch a movie, the movie revives an inner part our selves which has lost its way. This is why we watch movies, now what is that makes a movie worth watching, the script, the screen play and above all the actors, the people who play the most important part in turning a story into reality. Acting is not an easy job; it requires a lot of practice, hard work and talent.
