    Here's a scene most of you won't have difficulty relating to. A conventionally pretty girl is walking to a bus stop near her college, and a guy, obviously in cool denims and black shades, is watching her intently. Just when she's about to go out of sight, he decides to follow her, in a manner no different from what we call stalking. The girl is obviously irritated, but never yells out for help. Soon the scene shifts to inside the bus: the 'stalker' is now the knight in shimmering armour, and is the only man who is around to shield the girl from other shady passengers, all of whom are doing exactly what he did a minute ago! But, as you know, she is a girl and, therefore, bound to like the ‘macho’ guy protecting her.
    Change the scene again. The two are out of the bus now, but the guy continues to follow the damsel in distress and even reaches her home. He is unfazed even when he's face-to-face with the girl's brother, usually a dreaded local gangster. Surprise, surprise, the brother-who's-also- the-gangster is so large-hearted that he approves the 'stalking' boy and gives him permission to hover around the girl whenever he wants to. Did you just say this is so filmy? Perhaps it is because these are snippets from a hugely successful Telugu movie. In fact almost all the Telugu movies with big star cast have a similar storyline. Ram Charan is building a career out of such roles. Ravi Teja, Pawan Kalyan, Allu Arjun, Prabhas and a long list of others are repeating the same scenes in their films with different degrees of voyeurism and perversion.

    All the movies are like that, even if we watch Hollywood movies which are not block busters. They are also like that.


    Blame it on the audience as well who encourage these kind of scenes.
