The entertainment industry world wide is ever growing and one of the profitable capital of the industry these days are the movies! Movies is one of the most important aspect of our cultural life. Cinema and motion pictures have left behind theater far behind in therms of popularity and success. Movies enable the entertainment industry to draw huge revenues. Motion pictures since beginning have fascinated people and today Hollywood and other film industries around the world are hoarding great profits.
Movies are basically made with a sole purpose of entertaining the masses. However, there is a considerable percentage of movies that are made with an objective other than entertainment. The objective can be social awareness, revelation of a corrupted system, or addressing certain issues that have been sidelined for far too long. Whatever may be the objective or purpose, but it is not entertainment and goes beyond providing people visual pleasure. Some movies that are not made with an intention of social purpose are then made for aesthetic pleasure. These movies are watched with an intellectual insight. Hence, whatever may be the object of the director one thing that is common is the fact all the directors use the medium of visual arts and motion pictures to put across their point and tell a story in the manner it should be told. Directors choose this medium primarily because of the the entertainment factor that is so strongly associated with motion pictures. Therefore, you can take the entertainment out of movies but you cannot take movies out of entertainment!
