Nowadays it is very popular issue about the National Anthem should be played in the cinema hall or not. According to me it should be played what is wrong if they played National Anthem. After school people listen or assemble in the National Anthem only on 15th august and 26th January. So what is wrong if you contribute yourself in the cinema hall. Actually my personal view is I feel very proud when I went to cinema hall and do national anthem.

So, proud to be an Indian and contribute something for our nation.

The thing is that not all of us are able to enlist in the Indian armed forces, due to lack of willingness or physical disability. But when it comes to showing respect to our country, which has provided us directly or indirectly everything we need, then standing in an ac room for 1 or 2 minutes, should not cause anyone any problem.

There were many freedom fighters who laid down their lives for us happily. If they were to see us today not willing to stand when the national anthem is played, wouldn't you think they would regret fighting for this great nation?

In a country that is plagued with communal violence and regional hatred, the only thing that may unite us is the love for our nation. So if we lose our patriotism and if we don't stand up to our national anthem, then the day is not far when our great country will be destroyed by enemy forces.

I agree with you, @Nil Patel.

If you have that feel (repeat) you'll give your whole life to our nation,

And my request is in our India these people no have that feel so govt try to motivate them and conduct some program for this intention.

Some people talking about by doing this we can't become patriotic. I just want to say patriotism is all about your heart. If you love your country, can't you give your only 1 minute to show your love for your nation & it's anthem?!

Here, people are ready to stand in the line of Jio card distribution.

People are ready to stand in line in Temple.

People are ready to stand in line ATM & bank.

People are ready to stand in the line of ticket collecting. !

But. Only 1 minute for respect of their nation, they like it's not required, it's not be played before entertainment, it's not played cinema where adult & abusive movies streaming!

It's about love toward your nation.

A day will come, this question totally disappears.

Thank you.

Hello friends, I undoubtedly support this idea of standing to sing our national anthem before the start of movie. But we need to change our point of view by taking this thing positively. By positivity I mean to say, consider it as a discipline. Guys I would like to ask you very simple question, why we used to sing national anthem during assembly in our school days? The answer is very simple "discipline". And this word carries a huge weight. No Matter how rich you become, no matter how old you grow, you stand nowhere without discipline or we can say that it play a vital role to get you to the top. So irrespective of the movie which will be going on, just give your couple of minutes for the sake of your own good. It will be quite helpful.

What has national anthem got to do with cinema halls I really can't understand. Ok it can be accepted in cinema halls playing some patriotic films which make us proud of our nation such as biography of Netaji or Gandhiji or any other national hero. In modern days, most of the cinemas have erotic and vulgar contents. So what have they got to do national anthem. People will sing national anthem and then watch those things. It will be a total bluff in the name of nation. And most couples visit cinema halls not for watching movies but with other intention. What effect will the national anthem have on them? And if national anthem is to be made mandatory in cinema halls. Then why not in schools, colleges and every other work place.

Hi, I am Raj.

Actually, this is a very provocative question for the Indians. But I think national anthem shouldn't be supposed to make compulsory in cinema halls, it is only good up to some places.

Tell me one thing, today most of the films are based on full of love, romance, vulgarity, abusive languages; so what is the need to play there national anthem? It shows our disrespect nature towards our nation, moreover I have seen many of the foreigners who visit our Indian cinema hall, don't give so much attention, they are gossiping at that moment, so what is the need to stand? Only for formalities? If it is, we don't need formalities. Even many Indian youths are doing the same thing. They visit cinema halls with their girlfriend and occupy the corner sit just for romance during the entire 2 hours. Singing national anthem at such type of places really lowers the values of our national anthem. If you really want to do for nation, then do something magical which is best for the nation India. Don't worry about the national anthem, it is played in every schools, by thousands of lips everyday. Our India was best, is best and will always be the best.

Hii Friends,

It's a good idea to play national anthem in cinema halls, but still, I didn't find it so very necessary. It's a kind of honour and we must respect it. I want to share one of the incidences where one boy didn't stand and also asked his friend not to stand when the national anthem started playing. I really felt very bad and I thought it's really not a good idea to play national anthem in cinema halls because people started neglecting it and it's really a major issue when people started ignoring it. For me, if a person starts ignoring that it's the first step to break a relation. I don't want as a citizen of the country anyone should do that.

I also believe that not everything should be done everywhere. We should see the surrounding, then act accordingly.

So, I recommend that we should not play national anthem in cinema halls.

Hi everyone,

Today's topic is "Should national anthem be played in cinema halls? I would like to share my personal experience, once I had gone to the cinema hall, when the national anthem started, I marked that some persons were giving proper respect and the rest of them were just busy in there talk & all. I am not saying this idea is wrong, but here the wrong thing is a selection of place. Because if you really want to apply this rule, then you should apply all these rules in every educational field (school, college, university) which is the pillar of a student. From which they will learn how to give respect. No doubt, it's a new idea and a change is better than nothing. Need to some amendment in this rule. Jai Hind.

Hi everyone, I'm Nikita, I would like to share my view on this topic.

First of all, we are Indian and secondly, It comes on us automatically whenever we are going outside and we listened to the national anthem so we stand there and sing. It's a human nature but nobody can force us. In this generation, nobody has a feeling for that person's who left their life for freedom. I want to ask a question for you guys tell me that you are going in a cinema hall to watch the movie you have 2:00 hours for that but you don't give the 2min to our nation but It depends on person to person how much respect they give their nation.

I would like to say that playing national anthem should not be enforced in cinema halls.

That's because, People go to cinema hall for entertainment, And standing for national anthem does not prove Patriotism. True patriotism is serving the country, if that cannot be done then provide better financial, social support for soldiers who are sacrificing their lives for us. Even a corrupt politician can stand for the national anthem.

Many of you have said that it should not be enforced on the people and it should not be played in the hall. I like to share my points only for these people that you should be thanked to god that you are living in India. Our government is trying to inculcate patriotism among people so whats wrong in that? Our country is filled with different communities, caste, religion it is important to unite them. There is a need of patriotism so we can overcome from the problem like brain drain and many more. I m in army sometimes we do our duty in off time also. We also feel that it is our rest time but no we have to do it for any cause because it's my duty to serve the nation wherever it needs me. So it is a duty of a citizen also to respect the anthem, not because you are in any service because you are living in India.

Big changes come from small steps.

It is our luck that India is a democratic nation. Not a communism like China and other countries. So this is not supposed to be discussing a topic, not at all.

A cinema Hall is a place where we have the entertainment with a friend and have some personal things with our girlfriend's.

So, this is not the right place to play the National Anthem.

In my view, national anthem must be played at cinema halls. Not only at the cinema halls but also at the meetings such as the empowering the women which were held in Hyderabad. It shows a great respect which we are giving to our nation. But our topic is national anthem played in cinema halls are not. My answer is yes. We are paying attention nearly 2-3 hrs, for the movie we can't pay attention for 52 sec. Here it is a place where different types people gather together. It shows unity among ourself. We going to feel like its a family we should each and every one. It is the only way we can pay tribute to our soldiers any way we are not going to fight at the border. Just think for a second we are living like that its the grace of theirs. Pay salute to the jawans.

The things are like that at the evening time people come with drunken and ugly looks. Because of them, only this is the things happen MY BEST suggestion to the theatre owner is that should not allow those kinds of people. Make our country to be proud be honest help each other.

But I think it should not be compulsory every person is standing when national anthem played it is depend on that if they want to standing or not.

But I think it should me start in cinema halls because cinema halls is a that place where every age people come. And according to me I am a college student and in my college I sing a national anthem only 15 August and 26 January.

And I feel when I am going for good work and if I listen a national anthem so I feel it gives me energy to do something in my county.

So I concluded it National anthem should be start in cinema halls because you can stand 30 min for ticket but why you can't stand 52 second for national anthem?

Prasun said: (Apr 9, 2018)  
I see absolutely no reason to attempt to arouse patriotic feelings in a crowd that has gone to the cinemas solely for entertainment. Not a single soul goes there to get patriotically recharged. Here are a few other reasons;.

Playing national anthem is a total distraction from the mood that one goes to a movie theatre for.

Just playing or singing national anthem does not instil more patriotism.

Patriotism is tied to a country's boundary. It does not expand to humans or beings and therefore it makes you isolated in your thoughts and approach to how your perceive the world around you.

The patriotic feeling in the heart is something that was high in demand at a certain time in the past. There are other causes that need more attention such as cleanliness, giving respect to others, caring for the poor, and the list goes on. What good does it do our society or to humanity if a person has a patriotic feeling or not?

The legal system has better things to do. Cases stay pending for decades in the legal system and that is what they should focus on flushing out. This is not a legal issue - it is an issue relating to entertainment and people's patriotic feelings.

No other country in the world does it.

Hi everyone. Before I start speaking about the topic I want to ask some questions?

Don't you people think we Indians are very proud of our National Anthem?

Don't you think a cinema hall is just a place where we people just go to refresh ourselves enjoy with our friends or girlfriends or family?

Don't you people think that our National Anthem is very pious that playing it in cinemas should not be right.

Yes, ofcourse we all are Indian and we all are patriotic it doesn't mean that for sake of show off only it should be played in cinemas. No one here told that whenever our Brave soldiers are martyered, there sacrifice should be shown in theatre for one minute atleast to give them shradhanjali. But some politicians said that National Anthem should be played in cinema and to show off our patriotism we are agreeing to them. But we don't know that they are doing politics over National Anthem and they say they are patriotic. Before implementing it into theatres no one have the doubt whether we are patriotic or not. I will say don't go with these politicians ask your heart that on our national events, school assemblies and on other national issues like sports it should be played. But it is not right to play it in places like cinema halls. Or else someday they will say that it should be played in red light areas also because there also all are Indians.

I am afraid but I completely disagree with the idea of playing the national anthem before the screening of the movie. Actually, we have certain rules and principles to play national anthem with certain situations. The sense of patriotism comes naturally to a responsible citizen but it does not happen by force. Moreover, it played to create the sense of unity and integrity among people. It is played when we need to feel that we are united among many Diversities, such as playing national cricket team against opponents or participating our soldier any different global Initiative for peace and prosperity. While we play national anthem we should pay the respect. I don't think it is not appropriate to play anthem while we are watching a movie, which is really a commercial purpose of certain groups.

Hello everyone.

I am Amit Aryan and in my opinion, I think there should be certain steps taken before implementing such rules and regulations.

Article 51 (A) of our constitution says that it is duty of every citizen of India to respect and abide by the cultur, tradition and honour of India. And when we say duty, it implies that it should voluntarily done by every citizen, not should be forced or imposed upon them.

But we can give them a chance to do their duty.

And that's why, I think national anthem must be played in the cinema hall to give citizens a sense of nationality, patriotism in them. But it should also be left to them whether they want to give respect or not. Just like, we get scheduled timing for movie screening, same way timing should be there for national anthem as well like exactly 5 mint. Before screening of the movie. So that, people can adjust according to that, they want to attain national anthem or not. If not, they can come after that scheduled time.

This way, patriotism wouldn't be forced in someone and also those who want such feelings to be evoked on such certain events can also get it in them.

In my opinion, YES, national anthem should be played in cinema hall because most of the people get patriotic feelings only on republic day and independence day. Patriotism should be within our heart but it should be experienced practically. If we can watch a 3hr film can not we stand for 50 seconds? We should because if a soldier can stand for 24 hrs to protect our country we can stand for 52 seconds in cinema hall because it ignites patriotism feeling inside us nd shows prosperity and equality among the people of country.

Because patriotism is something that should come from within.

National Anthem and Patriotism go hand-in-hand. It doesn't matter where it is played or what is the occasion if you hear National Anthem Stand-up give your respect. Now we all know India is a democratic country where people can have their own opinion and they all have free to do whatever they want. Now if someone in Cinema Hall is not standing up, you do not need to make them understand that they should stand-up respect National Anthem, they will stand on their own. One of the main reason National Anthem is Played in Cinema Hall is after our completion of High School we do not hear National Anthem on regular basis or played everyday in our neighbour so to keep the feeling of our Nationality inside us National Anthem is played and it is such a lovely song which will make you feel great. So just play along no one will charge GST from you to hear and stand for a Minute for National Anthem.

Hello Friends, Everyone is saying it should be play and everyone should be stand up that time. But my opinion is there is no need to it because a person doesn't need to show their patriotic. And second is you can't enforce your rules on a person. Patriotic, love and desire come from the heart, not by force. If a person is patriotic then she/ he shouldn't show it by standing in a cinema hall when the national anthem is playing other than it they should help the needy person. The armies serve our country by standing on the border. They stand them whereby we can sleep free and our place with our family. So like that, we also show our patriotic by feed the hunger person and help the people. A person goes cinema for fun and enjoys not for the show their patriotic. What will happen if you play 52 second the national anthem they won't have to remember it in the 3 hours movie. So, I think national anthem shouldn't play in the cinema hall and shouldn't enforce your rule on others.

Yes, why not.

Why does anyone not raise such kinds of question when national anthem is played before the play starts in a cricket match? It's because they think that the players are playing at the national level for their country and they should pay respect to the country by singing the national anthem. They are wrong. Personally, I don't think that patriotism has any link with the level at which you are contributing to the nation. So why can't we- as a common man sing the national anthem in the cinema halls. We used to sing the national anthem at the school and college level only, after that I don't think there is an institution where we get an opportunity to sing it again. And if we are getting an opportunity to sing national anthem then we should take it with both hands open.

Hello everyone!

I do agree with the point that standing for 2 minutes will give us goosebumps, but after that we will indulge in movie and just forget about national anthem for which we have stood. Hereafter we will continue our bad practices as well in favour of us. To show patriotism means, it should come from within like helping the needy, guiding others not to encourage bad practices, and we can help our nation in various ways like as soldiers do. Soldiers sacrifice their lives to make us sleep well in our places and with beloved ones. But there are many people who don't even have the shelter. We can help others in their tough situations and let them feel happy. These can show that we can respect our country in such a easy and honest way rather than compelling others to stand for anthem and making us to pretend that we are having lots of love towards our nation. It should come from heart and it should be pure.

Every individual should respect their country and other countries aswell. We should be proud of our country. Cant we even stand for 2mins to respect our national anthem? Think about the soldiers, don't they have a life? Why do they risk their life? Soldiers stand day and night to protect our nation.

It gives feel proud, and some uneducated fellow will also come and see the movie at that time they might get value of anthem, they might change their thoughts, and it takes only 1minute time to feel happy, proud to be an Indian, and it might increase positive thinking, nowadays some ppl might, or they won't give respect to film industry, it helps to think positive. And it helps to maintain discipline in the cinema hall. Jai Hind.

Hello everyone.

In my opinion, the national anthem should be played in cinema halls. Because it reminds us of the nation"s unity, integrity and diversity. To all those who are saying that cinema is a place where people come to relax and enjoy, it is really ironical that you are ready to spend your 3 hours without any issues but standing for 52 seconds is objectionable for you. People who are saying that patriotism comes from within and you don't need to show it, just imagine if soldiers at the borders start thinking like this that patriotism is within me and I don't need to stand at borders to prove it then what will happen. Apart from this in today's life with so much cut-throat competition, where everyone is busy in shaping their career and planning future, somewhere in between we forget about our country, our patriotism get lost up. National anthem in cinema halls will ignite patriotic feelings in us and energize us to develop our nation.

To all the people who are in favour of playing the national anthem in the movie halls, when you say that the anthem instils pride in you and to quote one of the answers, "gives goosebumps and butterflies", good for you! But when you say that it is the only way to respect the nation, I think you couldn't be farther from the truth. If a song is the only way you can think of instilling patriotism in people, you're rather weak in your will and seem like you can be swayed to the other side when not playing it!

Is that the case?

To say that there is only one way to feel patriotic and one way to properly respect an entity is dictatorial and not freedom. Even more ironic is when the people who feel so patriotic after the anthem pay bribes to cops, go the wrong side on the roads, litter the streets, etc after coming out of the movie halls. So much for the lecture on patriotism!

If you want to show your patriotism, stop enforcing your rules on others. Help people around you. Take care of your environment. Do things that make the world a better place to live. Branding anyone who thinks differently as an anti-national is just the beginning of a tyrant society.

The thing is not about standing for a minute and sitting for 3 hrs, the thing is how much do you understand the national anthem. Cinema halls are placed to relax and enjoy and not a place to prove your patriotism. What's the use if standing because when you leave the cinema halls you are going to litter it, going to bribe traffic police after breaking signals and continue with all the bad practice. If you really respect the Tiranga and stand for it income. A hall than why do triangles lie on the road after 26 Jan or 15 August?

Now many of us here arguing that a cinemall hall is a place for entertainment n all.

I agree but what is the problem if we stand barely 52seconds for the national anthem?instead standing with other Indians for national anthem will make us feel proud of our nation. If we can watch the movie for 3 hrs there so we can also stand for the national anthem for a minute. Freedom fighters gave their life for our country can't we give one minute to our national anthem.

As per me playing the national anthem before movie should not create any problem to viewers because if they can give their 3 hours to a movie then they can also give 52 seconds for nation's integrity. But if we look from general perspective then one question would always be there that why it becomes mandatory to play the national anthem at places where people are far -far away from the feeling of patriotism. This method shows that Indians do not have any feeling toward their nation.

According to me, National Anthem should be played in cinema halls. Tell me one thing, what\'s the problem in playing it before a movie? If you are not playing it no issues. But if you play it then what's the problem? I think there is no problem. Instead while standing for national anthem with other 100 to 200 Indians will make you feel proud of your nation. There will be people from the different area of your city whom you don't even know. But while standing with them for national anthem a brotherhood feeling will come for them. And it is just about 52 sec. One more thing, other than twice in a year (26th Jan and 15th Aug) when do we play national anthem. So it is better to play it in the cinema hall.

Hi there,

In my view, national anthem should not be mandatory in cinema halls because nationalism is a thing which comes from within a person. We cannot force it on anyone. Moreover, cinema halls have a different kind of movies and playing the national anthem before any inappropriate movie is like insulting are a nation and it's dignity. Also, people come in theatres for their entertainment and not to prove their patriotism. So, rather than forcing this thing on anyone, we should make this thing a choice of every individual.

But if we are talking about the anthem be played in cinema hall so I think a cinema hall is a place where everyone who are coming to spend some time to enjoy a life with our friends and families. And cinema hall are also not a right place to show our feelings for our country.

Whenever I am in cinema hall to watch a movie, the national anthem reminds me that, " Boy you are safe. We the soilders are protecting you. " This thought makes me happy and thankful to at least stand up and pay a heart respect to the angels protecting our nation and there is nothing wrong by doing this.

As I know that National Anthem should not play in cinema Halls, it's the place of amusement, Look Differ category of movies release like B grade movie, should us watch the movie B grade after research of the national anthem. Patriot is shown by feelings, love, and should us do something for society, give it to India pride things. Due it people remind us not by standing in cinema halls at the play of national anthem.

But, National Anthem is being played at many theatres. SC has now made it mandatory for all the theatres. The move has not gone down well for some people but the majority have no objections. No move can appease all, there will always be some who oppose. SC must have considered squarely before pronouncing such compulsion. Those who are against it can voice and cite reasons for its better implementation.

India has many colors but when all stand up for the national anthem, it reminds sense of unity. The theatre is a few place where we as a family stand up for our National Anthem.

Hi all,

I totally oppose the national anthem playing inside the cinema halls. Actually, this is a good thing, but it is not a suitable place for playing that and not prove your patriotism inside the cinema halls. Because why we go for cinema halls? Just imagine we just go for enjoying our days with family or some special peoples. At the time these are things happened. What you think about your mind? just think. Obviously, this thinks something like boring the peoples and irritating also. Definitely different countries peoples also came into cinema halls and they do not know about our culture and our patriotism. This is not needed that peoples should know about our culture. At the same time, they don't know during the playing of national anthem they must stand for 2 mins are more. This is not our fault. This is our Indian government fault.

I also prefer playing of the national anthem is very good to think before the starting of offices and courts. Because this is must create the peoples energetic, stress-free, do their work properly, make the peoples truly, freshly start their day and everything.

I totally support the idea of palying National Anthem in Cinema Hall. I don't think it will have any disrespect for our National Anthem. I also read some friends views that what would be the respect for our National Anthem before the start of Adult movies. It doesn't matter that's different part of anyone life and people go in Cinema Hall toust have some entertainment and they won't mind to stand up for 2 mjnutes while playing National Anthem.

I also recommend to make this rule mandatory in every private or goverment offices before the start of work or shifts inside and outside of offices. It will really have some very positive effect to our society.

One more thing that want to add here, we should also make a rule of sending every indians for Army service in the begining stage of their life i.e. at the age of 18 as this is the age where we will. Be able to inculcate huge patriotism in our young people for our country and automaticall it will be passed in the same way generations to generations. I am sure once we start doing all this so many bad things will automatically fade away in our this beautiful country.

Our National Anthem was written by Rabindranath Tagore as a tribute to our motherland for whom thousands of people gave up their lives. It marks the sacrifice, the culture and the existence of a proud nation called INDIA.

It is because of an independent country like India, people are able to exercise freedom of speech and expression. Cinema is the right example of freedom of expression. Thus, we should thank those martyrs because of whom we are enjoying this freedom. I firmly believe, patriotism comes from the heart and it cannot be forced upon anyone but standing up for a few minutes to join your fellow countrymen and sing the national anthem will do no harm to anyone.

Our national anthem reflects our culture. It is the pride of our country. It evokes a sense of pride, responsibility, and respect towards our country. But it should not be played at a cinema hall as patriotism comes from the heart of a person, people should not be forced to be patriotic and stand during the national anthem before the national flag. Cinemas are for entertainment purposes and playing the national anthem before certain movies (ADULT) would totally disrespect and shame the national anthem.

When the national anthem is played in the cinema the person is more interested in the movie going to take place though he may stand up he will not be respecting it fully.

If we sing our national anthem to show that respect and honor our motherland we should do it with the sky on top of our heads and not under a roof. We should do it with no walls to bound the praise of our motherland. We should do it, it by helping our country prosper.

Listening to the National Anthem of one's own country is something that fills the mind with an immense pride. I indeed feel that National Anthem should be played not only in cinema halls but also in other ceremonies of national importance.

One may feel that merely standing for two minutes does not portray patriotism, but if one cannot spare out even two minutes for his country in his joyous time (which Mother India has showered on him), how can it be ever expected that such a person will even care about his country when she needs him the most!

Doing such small things can do big wonders. I admit that in this busy life schedule it is difficult to take care of others and serve our country, but such minute actions will really give us a feeling of satisfaction and pride.

Namaskar to all Indians who consider playing national anthem in cinema hall is not the right way of showing respect to our Mother India.

As per some of beloved Indians patriotism cannot be forced and as per them playing national anthem in hall is like forcing people to show respect unwillingly to mother India, so my first question to these people is,

We Indians are independent today, can walk freely, talk freely and live life, so whats wrong in showing the respect our land where we stand.

Yea, cinema hall is source of entertainment, but if we start the fun standing for our nation, one should feel pride.

Talking about those who think patriotism is in heart, that's for every Indian, but few things we do because its adds to our confidence of being Indian like playing National anthem.

If one can stand in queue for getting tickets of movie, then whats wrong to stand for our Country. One must have seen while the National Anthem is played, it always shows the group of armies who dedicate their whole life protecting National Flag, so I find no inconvenience in showing honor for our National Flag.

There are many things which we dislike, or which are not required still we do it as they are required for living.

We should feel happy that today we got National Anthem only because we are independent, if suppose we wouldn't have been independent, there wouldn't be cinema hall, no source of entertainment and above all no :freedom of Speech".

So at the end I would say "One should feel pride in being independent and show respect to National Anthem" even in cinema halls.

"52 seconds" never had made people so judgmental, I am completely shocked to see that most so called patriotic people here thinks playing national anthem at cinema halls is completely bad idea; even they have many intellectual reasons too, hats off to them.

Now, when I have ever been to cinema halls I have seen about 98% of people standing and even half of them citing it too with proper respect and love, so that 2% doesn't comes under unpatriotic people, and even that 98% doesn't proves to be a patriotic one, but, the thing is; why we are so much worried for standing up for 52 seconds and showing respect, yeah. Yeah, one don't need to show respect like this but still Why NOT, what is so horrifying and dreadful if it is played, it is our National anthem brother. You can never rationalize your love to mother nation. It is by heart and whenever we are asked to we should do whatever in the name of our mother nation.

Now, when it was played at schools it was also not compulsory (same arguments can be raised for that also) then too but we did daily and that only infused us with the unconditional love for our nation and yes, Tell me friends after school how much you have listened it or stand for it, very rare so, if you are getting an opportunity to stand for it or even just sit and listen with people all around you makes us feel united, makes us feel connected, makes us feel together.

The gooze bombs and butterflies which I always felt while standing for national anthem is unexplainable and I will always whenever, wherever it will be played and I know my fellow brothers and sisters will do the same.

But think that on 15 Augst or 26 Jan, you go near the flag, and any filmy songs are played then you will obviously oppose that because your expectation is there (standing near the flag) is to listen to national anthem not any kind of filmy song. Same thing happens when you go in cinema your expectation is there to enjoy not to show patriotism.

Well! I don't know that national anthem should be played in a cinema hall or not?

Bt one thing I know is to not forget my fundamental duties. And my constitution gave me this pride to respect my national anthem and national flag no matter where it is played and in what condition it is played.

We couldn't forget the sacrifices of people for these proud moments.
