A Bollywood movie, casting Ranbir Kapoor was released some few years ago. It was called Saawariya. It was the debutant performance in Bollywood for the son of one of Bollywood's legend, Rishi Kapoor. Looking back on the publicity of the movie, it can still be vividly remembered that the crowd was anticipating a blockbuster. However, the movie did not any wonders on screen. Later the take on Ranbir was 'a mediocre actor trying to fit into a giant's shoe'. After Saawariya not having done well, Ranbir flew abroad. Critics claimed him as an actor whose career had finished before it had even started, then came the blockbusters, his answers and the super hits. Ranbir had now been back and was delivering blockbusters after blockbusters. He had come back a new actor, someone more versatile and dynamic. Little to anyone's knowledge was the fact that, he had gone abroad after his first film to get a formal education. He had now come back as an educated man, someone with a clear vision and perspective to do exactly what the screens wanted from him. This transformation after a formal education has turned his career around. Thus, even in a field like the cinemas the need for formal education is a must.
It should be understood that films are not just a form of passive entertainment, but a powerfully active learning tool in the educational process. Formal education is an important element in making it in the cinemas. It is not just talent that does is but talent with a polished look on it. A lot of young people are today, excited about cinemas. Many tend to look for careers either in acting, writing, producing or directing. It is here that initiatives should be taken to show students that movies can help a whole lot in critical thinking. They should be educated in an orthodox manner for their talents and creativity to be visible on screen and off screen. The concept of employing films in education should be introduced and its benefits should be highlighted. This is how an early start can be made for a successful career in cinema. A clear picture should be shown that without a formal educational background, making it in any industry can be more than just a hard task. Students should prepare themselves to take on the responsibility of learning before making it in the industry. Small measures such as choosing a course, strengthening one's creativity and working hard should be thoroughly gone through by students to have a successful career in the movie media as well as any other industry.
