Worth It

Green belt Movies: 

Note: in my language social doesn’t mean “Family Drama” It means there is an underlying social cause discussed. Obviously most of these would be tragic ending since in this Green category, serious stories  have to follow real life without day dream as far as possible.

Socialistic (or Leftist if you want it more plainly said) obviously differs from Social. Let me call this as Red or Pink depending on the hue for clarity.

Then there could be Family Dramas (the south Indian type Husband, wife, DIL, MIL, Pati Patni especially Woh) or non-Family Dramas (where the drama might override the romance aspect).

Psycho for me isn’t the Hitchcock’s psycho, it is abbreviation for Psychological. So Psycho-thriller or Psycho-horror would be Hitchcock.

Similarly I might be using several adjectives trying to bring the concept of the movie as pithily as I can (and I feel the movie has). Once again let me in advance apologise, since my feel could as well be entirely wrong from others. 

The comedies of course are the fish of other kettle, but these too shouldn’t be outrageous. Some of them could be outrageous, then the could be so, but totally, and the outrage should be thoroughly enjoyable.
