Love for Odia Movies

I born and raised in a village where everyone speaks Odia only. Odia is the global language of that village. At that time, we only saw the Odia TV Channels which is provided to Doordarshan, Listen to Odia Radio only. That radio was the government station like Air Odisha. Till my 10th I had seen the Odia newspapers only.

I think everyone in our village love to watch Odia movies and the Yatra (Play). Though I raised within those people, I became that type. I love to watch Odia movie. Yes, now I don't like the Yatra, but there was a time when I love to watch Yatra. With the flow of time, my taste also changed and then I started watching Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali and English movies. But I don't give up my habit to watch Odia movies. All are complaining that the Odia movies don't have the original story. But, I don't see that. I only see the good things which might not be in the original movies. Even I had seen a story in 4 languages. Movies like Pokiri and Okkadu in Telugu had remade in some other languages and I had seen everything. The Pokiri movie remade in Tamil, Kannada and Hindi and I saw a number of variation within that. Okkadu remade in Odia, Tamil, Bengali as well as in Hindi. And in every language, there is a variation. If we are watching a movie a number of times, then why shouldn't we watch a single movie by various actors.

Yes, I love to watch Odia movie. It's true that I couldn't see a movie in a theatre. Because I don't have the patience to sit in a single place for 2 to 3 hours. That's why I depend on internet and TV to watch the movies.
