Take a 5 star Chill Pill !

Imagine  describing yourself in an intense , serious situation. The situation could probably be about anything , an anticipated exam result or a confrontation that you are trying to avoid, or even something that you may fear for whats to come

The description for all these situations would revolve probably only words like "Dark", "Dull", "Gloomy" , "Negative" ,"Serious" with a melancholy. From the description itself you'd probably have lost all your hope & energy on it and simply brooding over it

Almost everyone would have experienced such "dark" & "serious"personalities throughout our lifetimes and would have thought, "do they know to laugh" , "know the definition of fun" and "even have a life" ? I have been on the receiving end of so much seriousness that only i could put up with , from a variety of people.. The serious cousin who always act too serious as if I was on a Fort Knox training camp, the maths professor who finds fit that the only thing to do is to learn is the differential equation , the old married friend who says no to any fun activity on any given activity and has time only to brood about kid's tuition fees and exams.

The air of seriousness ,formality and negativity can be so addictive or rather contagious that you end up a serious patient yourself and the only thing that could save you is a Cadbury's 5 star chocolate as a chill pill

I was on lines of encountering people with such a "Serious condition" but happened to realize a much bigger phenomenon, when these serious people actually are leading film directors and producers and their creative pursuits and production can actually reflect their state of mind and dark personality  . Three people who come immediately to my mind are Manirathnam , Imtiaz Ali & Anurag Kashyap . All 3 are brilliant filmmakers who have created a lot of masterpieces , but the underylying background of all their movies is a serious dark background, a signature black and white frame ,a silent melancholy that screams throughout the movie .

Who can forget the deathly silence in  Sathiya , the intense conversation in Dil Se by Manirathnam, the heavniess even in a romantic situation in Rockstar by Imtiaz or the dark gloomy Shaitan and Dev D by Anurag . All their films throughout portrays a dark serious relationship or the drug addict hero that/who is only destined for doom in most cases and finally ends in death .

Being too serious can actually only mean it sounds ridiculous and dark satire humor for the audience trying to make any sense out of this . In fact one wouldn't be surprised when the actors are saying a very serious dialogue but the audience actually blurting out to a much stifled laugh . #conditiontooserioushaiboss ( watch the Cadburys 5star Condition serious Hai ad here )

Trolling serious action fights and sequences is another ballgame altogether that can bring out the laugh despite it meant to be a serious scene in the action movie. Over the years i have compiled a list of scenes that couldnt have been any more funnier ( you may not even require to know the language to roll down the floor laughing)

I guess every film maker and actor in the film industry should have a Anti-serious treatment by having a Cadburys 5 star and Chill out . #conditionserioushai
