This post shares a small observation made related to switching on TVs in movies.
Scenario: In a movie, something important is happening and one key person is not at al aware of this. His/her friend/business associate/relative etc calls him/her and asks “tumhne TV nahi dekha” (hindi for: You’ve not watched TV?) Now the person receiving the call says “Nahin, kya hua” (No. What happened?) and then switches on the TV.
In all movies, following happens without fail:
1. The viewer never needs to change the channel (The TV was set to the channel where the said news is being shown-In real life, there’s always a high probability that you’ll have to ask your caller on which channel the news he/she wants to tell is coming and then you’ll have to navigate to that channel)
2. The news item begins from start once the TV is turned on (Usually you should miss initial few lines if you switched on few seconds late)
3. They always switch off the TV after hearing one or two lines.(with anger, most of the time) They don’t check what other news channels are showing or call up someone to cross check the information.
End of post (No further interpretations)
