The Downfall of Us All

bollywood.jpgA recent study by Heriot Watt University (UK) has published some “ground-breaking results”. A group of psychologists that study family and personal relationships studied 40 romantic-comedy rom-coms [always womens favorites] box office hits between 1995 and 2005, including You’ve Got Mail, Maid In Manhattan, The Wedding Planner and While You Were Sleeping [and I am sure many other titles that I have fortunately escaped seeing].

The studies found:

“The problem is that while most of us know that the idea of a perfect relationship is unrealistic, some of us are still more influenced by media portrayals than we realise.”

The study had 100 student volunteers watch the 2001 romantic comedy Serendipity [a rom-com that I did NOT have the fortune to avoid], while 100 others watched a drama [I know which group I would’ve wanted to be in].

The report stated that:

Students watching the romantic film were later found to be more likely to believe in fate and destiny. A further study found that fans of romantic comedies had a stronger belief in predestined love.

Now imagine if they had studied Bollywood movies and Punjabi womens expectations before they realize the reality that is the Punjabi male. Talk about a letdown!

Oh well, if you wish to participate in the study, click here.

If not, have a great weekend and make sure you avoid the rom-com and the Bollywood bore. Tell your significant other you dont want to watch it in order to save your relationship. Tell me how it works out!

    Bollywood has taught everyone important life lessons. For example like in Kal ho naa ho, when you have a heart condition..going dancing, with hulucinating lights… not the best treatment plan.
