So here's a thing: I love Bollywood. I love the films, the music, everything. Even with its very problematic bits, I have embraced Bollywood. But there are some things that just don't let me forgive this industry...
The sheer injustice of Bollywood actors NOT EVEN TRYING to look like they're playing a musical instrument.
This behaviour is not limited to guitars, but guitars are heavily affected by it. Look, you're not even trying to hold a chord, Zeenat, what the fuck.
But you know what? I'll forgive you because this was several decades ago. However, I will NOT FORGIVE the modern-day abuse of unplugged electric guitars, Hrithik.
Excuse me, Rani? Where is your guitar cable? This can't possibly be a cordless electric, it's frikkin Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
Bhai doesn't need any cables either. "Oh oh, jaane jaana. Play a real chord? DON'T WANNA."
What you see: Ooh hunk, red Strat, very beautiful.
What you hear: *bum note* *bum note* *bum note* *bum note* *bum note* BECAUSE THIS SHIT IS NOT PLUGGED.
Even actors who consider themselves "perfectionists" somehow fail to notice the absence of a guitar cable or ANY REAL FUCKING STRUMMING IN GENERAL.
ABBE CABLE TOH CONNECT KAR, KAUNSA SOLO MAAR RAHA HAI, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN.
And this industry-wide assault of musicians isn't restricted to guitars, no.
