A FILM IS meant to provide a few hours of entertainment but they can be changed here and there to make the audience happy when they become monotonous.
IF MODERN technology can revitalise some of the greatest creations of Indian cinema and make them more attractive to the new generation, I think it is a good idea.
OLD IS GOLD and I don't think we have the right to turn it into copper. Classic films should be left untouched. These experiments are done only to catch the interest of a new audience.

IF A LITTLE tampering with the packaging but not with the quality of classic films can revive their charm and richness, it should be done.
TAMPERING WITH A classic film, other than for restoring it, is objectionable. The outcome of such attempts is often garish and the film loses the very element that makes it a classic.
YES, BUT ONLY if it maintains the integrity of the original. If 'tampering' attracts the multiplex generation to watch the classics, it should certainly be encouraged.

CLASSIC FILMS SHOULD not be tampered with because they have their own charm and their own place in the history of Indian cinema. They should be left as they are. That way, they can educate today's youth about the wonder that was Indian cinema.
