Trending now: A funny take on Art films!

Art films are boring and for selective audience - The Viral Fever (TVF) busts this myth by taking a dig at the popular art film maker Anurag Kashyap in a new viral video ‘An Indian Art-house film’. The video is a parody on the arthouse film-making process in India and tickles your funny bone.

The video has started creating buzz on social media and has generated many a laugh riots already. Making fun of everything from method actors, lucid vocabulary, challenging roles like alcohol and drug addicts or deaf/dumb/blind central characters to money issues, the video makes fun of the entire art film-making process and even film makers like Anurag Kashyap. The idea conveyed in the video is that contrary to the popular belief, an Art film can actually entertain the masses too. Kashyap’s Gangs of Wasseypur was a hit among the audience despite coming from Anurag’s bag of art films and we see similar elements in his next: UGLY! The trailer of the movie hints at an intriguing plot along with a few comic moments like “actors use different names for professional use and for home”, says an actor in the movie to the police in a mild interrogation when he reveals his 2 names and pat comes the reply from the inspector, “Toh Amitabh Bachchan ka ghar ka naam kya hai?”, causing everyone in the room to burst into laughter.
Anurag Kashyap has to be a sport to feature in the video distorting the art of making an Indian Arthouse film and ridiculing sex, violence and smoking in movies for affecting Indian culture! Despite being known as an Art film maker, he doesn't believe in separating art from entertainment. Also playing a part in the video are Vikramaditya Motwane and Ronit Roy, who is also seen as a mighty police officer in the movie UGLY. The Background score of the trailer grows on you and it is a must watch how an art films’ comparison is drawn in the video!
