|There are certain rules and regulations to when and where the National anthem should be played.
Exactly the way there are rules in when and where the National Flag should be hoisted. Playing it whenever and wherever we want is not allowed. Even the prime minister of the country is not greeted with the national anthem before or after his speech, this honour is only for the president and the Governor only. The National anthem can be played when receiving a national flag as honour (by a martyred soldier's kin or parents or wife). People don't know the value of these things. You see National Flag being sold on roadsides. Flags are hoisted on road corners where it is drenched in dust and rain. Many of us don't know that National Flag should not be hoisted after 6 pm. If it rains we need to remove the flag to protect it from getting spoilt.
I strongly oppose National Anthem being played in Cinema halls and after a certain time.
Some people say it is respect for Nation. But by finding these we are actually disrespecting the nation itself.
|Karan said: (Mar 27, 2022)|
|Yes, the national anthem should be played. I came in front to some viewpoints saying the national anthem should not be played in cinema halls because it's a place of entertainment, well then there should be a particular area for a person to get respected and some places not. What I am trying to say is if we want to respect everywhere we go why can't we give respect to our country, to our flag, to our nation, to our soldiers which is providing us with the freedom and opportunity to enjoy everything and that's also just for 52 seconds whereas we are going to enjoy for the next 2 to 3 hours.|
|Kirti said: (Feb 8, 2022)|
|Yes, it should be played in cinema halls because it's a little step that we are taking for our nation.|
|Nishant Mishra said: (Dec 20, 2021)|
|No from my point of view, the National anthem is our nation. It has to play in the open sky. And depend on the movie also if the movie is released of the Indian armies such as Shershah LOC Kargil or Surya the soldier. These movies are part of the Indian army. With respect of the Indian army, we can play the national anthem. But in other movies, we don't need to play.|
|Kamlendra said: (Aug 29, 2021)|
I think that national anthem should not be played on cinema halls. As we know that people with different types of nature come to these cinema halls, some of them are renowned, intelligent and they know the value of national anthem. On the other hand some of them are irrational, arrogant and feel their disrespect on standing while national anthem is being played. Now these second category's people, neither they stand up for national anthem nor they sung it, even they make joke of the people of first category i.e. renowned intelligent and patriotic people.
Sometimes this causes quarrel in cinema halls, and many times fight also between these two category people.
I am not in opposition of national anthem but I am in opposition of disrespect of national anthem.
If national anthem is to be played on cinema halls, there should be proper management, guards to stop quarrels and to make everyone stand up while national anthem is being played.
|Vikramaditya said: (Jul 18, 2021)|
|Yeah, and it should also be played before entering in a water park, mall, restaurant, public park etc. Soldiers are sacrificing their lives each day, but what are you doing for their sacrifice? You think you stand up in a cinema hall and your duty ends?|
|Anita said: (May 6, 2021)|
|As per my opinion, I want to say something about the National Anthem. The national anthem should be played in cinema halls but many people go to in the cinema hall from many works. The Cinema hall is not just a hall but hear, many shops in around and many places for playing the game. So if we play the national anthem then many people hear it but not feel this moment because he busy with his work. So according to me, it should play one day in a weak so all people can attract this national anthem and feeling it and he will remember our soldiers which sacrifice for our nation.
|Prachi Mundhra said: (Mar 2, 2021)|
|In my opinion, National Anthem should be played in Cinema Halls. It is not just a song it is a feeling, an emotion. Some people say that it should not be sung in cinema halls as the atmosphere of cinema halls is entertaining and joyous so I just have a simple question for those people -- When you cannot stand for yourself, how do you expect others especially soldiers to stand for us? Why do we hesitate to sing National Anthem at cinema halls because soldiers do not hesitate while sacrificing themselves for us?
It hurts when people make excuses for not singing the national anthem. Well, we learn from what we see and when children watch other people singing National Anthem they imitate them. If it is bad then we should stop singing the national anthem in cinema halls. One more aspect is that it is not our daily schedule to sing the national anthem, after our schooling we don't really bother to sing it but where we get the opportunity at least there we can give our best.
To the people who say the national anthem doesn't fit in cinema halls, I would like to say it is not the place which matters it is our feelings which matters the most. When you say God is everywhere, why can't patriotism be everywhere? (Don't say we go to temples to worship gods, have you made anything where we can go and sing the national anthem?).
|Monisha Venkatesan said: (Feb 6, 2021)|
In my point of view, national anthem must be played in cinema halls to make aware or think of our motherland for a meanwhile and think of many legends who fought for our nations not only make awake it create a feeling that we are unity and patriotic.
|Jitendra said: (Dec 21, 2020)|
|Yes, my dear friend in my opinion should be played the national anthem in cinema because it a create the feeling of unity among the people. And create the feeling of patriotism.|
|Sakshi said: (Aug 7, 2020)|
|Hey guys, this is Sakshi and I would like to tell you my opinion about national anthem should be played in the cinema or not so it should not I know that you are thinking why what's wrong in it when it's showing how proud Indians are in national anthem but national anthem is national anthem it is not any party song which peoples enjoy and we can't force anyone to stand and if anyone is stubborn and not standing so it will be a reason for fight in Hall but that people came here to enjoy there day. So it should not be played in the cinema hall.
I'm also proud of the national anthem.
Thank you so much.
|Pranathi said: (Apr 26, 2020)|
These days National Anthem is being played almost in all theaters before the movie starts. I don't know if you all know the main reason behind it. In some place of India, while the movie was going on. In a particular scene, there was a national anthem being played. In the whole theater, it was only one man who stood up in respect to our country. The rest of them were just involved in the scene. So, that person filed a case in the court regarding this issue and the court has made it mandatory to play National Anthem before starting any movie.
People are so involved in the movie that, they don't even know that the National Anthem is being played. In this way, they are losing their respect for the nation.
I don't say that National Anthem should be played in cinema halls. But it is our duty to stand up and salute whenever it is being played as a part of the movie. There is nothing wrong in playing it also. Because at least that time we get to remember of our country.
|Ajay Yadav said: (Mar 22, 2020)|
|Hello everyone, a very good evening to all of you.
This is Ajay kumar today my topic is should national anthem be played in cinema hall, I think in my point of view it should be played in cinema hall as we all know that national anthem is not only song it's an emotion for our motherland. It shows the pride and dignity of our country. Before starting of the movie we can take a little time to sing a national anthem though it doesn't take much time to sing. We know that cinema is the place of entertaining, making fun all that things but it does not mean that we forget our ethics, culture, etc. I am not against of anyone views but this is my view regarding this.
|Kirit said: (Mar 12, 2020)|
|No use standing in theatres for National anthem instead we should stand for child labour stand for widows orphans so many National and social issues for which people should stand and so many issues there are there in the society one needs to stand for that and lastly even in Loksabha in Delhi National Anthem is not sung then why in movie theatres.|
|Kirit said: (Mar 12, 2020)|
|I believe national anthem when it is played in the theatres people who are standing for National Anthem should not disrespect those who are sitting throughout the national anthem but those who are sitting also should be disrespectful towards those ere standing nobody should we forcefully made to stand during the national anthem in the theatres personally I don't appreciate the idea of the national anthem being sung in the theatre many people don't stand patriotic but they stand because they are scared that somebody might shout at them or beat them respect should not be commanded or demanded respect should be earned so whoever stands for the national anthem should stand with the heart in it I believe the value of national anthem will always be more where there is respect from the maximum people. I heard people give bad words when the national anthem starts in theatre. I believe it's absolutely wrong place for the national anthem to be in theatres.|
|Nayanika Barman said: (Feb 28, 2020)|
|Yes, I completely feel the national anthem should be played in cinema halls. Normally what happens is that the younger generation does not get to learn the importance of the national anthem because such things are normally not discussed in the family. So many youngsters come to see the movies and if they see people standing up whenever it is played it will definitely instill a sense of pride and respect in them. Moreover, there are foreign tourists that come to these cinema halls, seeing so many people standing up to the anthem would obviously send a good impression.|
|Nehal Tiwari said: (Feb 17, 2020)|
|According to me,
The national anthem should be played in cinema halls because watching movies for 3hours and denying to stand even for less than a minute is quite unfair when you have already stood up for it for almost 12years in your school assembly. Moreover, the word national in itself contains a word Nation means we all as Indians are united and part of this nation. It also motivates and reminds our youth to stand and gives respect to our own country's anthem. Standing for less than a minute or for 52 seconds doesn't degrade our positions or time.
|Suchetna said: (Feb 4, 2020)|
|Hello everyone, Good evening.
In my point of view, national anthem should not play in cinema hall because national anthem is national anthem. It's not a entertaining song, people come to cinema hall for enjoyment or entertainment. After the job or duty. If you should play. Then you can play in our work place or before starting the job. Thank you.
|Nimish said: (Feb 2, 2020)|
|In my opinion, the national anthem should be played in the cinema halls as no one attends the national anthem daily and also it reminds everyone about the unity of our country and polishes the patriotism in one's mind. Standing for 52 sec is not a difficult task while you can watch a movie for 2-3 hrs. Also showing respect to our national anthem is a sign of patriotism and to the soldiers who are securing our nation at the borders in even negative temperatures.
Can't we stand erect for even 52 sec?
According to me, the people who do not stand for even our national anthem have no right to claim themself as an INDIAN. Thank you!
|Sakshi Maheshwari said: (Feb 2, 2020)|
|Before delving further into the topic its important for us to understand. Why is national anthem played?
I feel this gets us to an answer of paying respect to our country. But does playing national anthem in the movies really brings respect to it. The answer would be big no because not everybody there is as patriotic to stand and salute the feeling for which it is played.
Cinema halls contain public of some who may have patriotism and may stand up for the good cause but what about others who are more interested in the upcoming trailers or arranging their seats. It would be a disrespect to our nation's pride, nations anthem and even it wouldn't bother them as they are left unnoticed. If it should be played in cinemas then it should be played in parliaments, in workplaces & people not respecting it shouldn't be left unnoticed. That would be real respect to the motive with which it played.
|Urvashi said: (Dec 4, 2019)|
|In my opinion.
The national anthem should be played in the cinema hall. It's very important in our life because we are Indians and it's shows our nationaly. And in the cinema hall, every age is to be presented and it's a very good environment because no one knows to other all are known but Because of national, we are connected to each other and sing a song together. And also in these senior children only use Mobile and playing games but when they went to cinema hall and they learn and show love to our nationality.
And it just a 52 sec standing it's also good for health because after that you only sit on the year for 2 Hr.
Our soldiers play their duty and because of soliders we laugh easily, we live tension free so just only 52 sec. We shows love to our nation.
|Mukul Singh said: (Nov 27, 2019)|
|According to me it shouldn't be played into the cinema halls because everyone doesn't have patriotism and in the cinema halls there are people of several religion who don't want to listen or sing this national anthem it is just a wasting of time for them and it is also a disrespecting of our national anthem and another reason is that the national anthem should be played in an open area instead of into the four walls and the person who is into the cinema halls they don't focus into the national anthem they starts their gossips related to their movies and all.|
|Vishal Kanthale said: (Nov 20, 2019)|
In my opinion, the National Anthem should be played in cinema hall it's very important in our life because when we live our life at that time SOLDIERS play their duty and because of SOLDIERS we live tension free.
It's only 52 seconds standing so it did anyone.
After 52 seconds we did not stand we only sit in the cinema hall so it's useful to our health because first, we stand them we sit 3 hrs so it's ok.
"Instead of listening we sing a NATIONAL ANTHEM".
|Mitali said: (Nov 20, 2019)|
|In my opinion, the national anthem should not be played in the cinema hall because it is a place for entertainment, not the right place to show our patriotism to make people forcefully stand and let them sing it should be played in an open place not under the roof.|
|Col.Padma Kumar said: (Oct 30, 2019)|
|The national anthem should not be played in movie halls. There are certain appropriate occasions where patriotic encouragement is required. Every day before office starts, let us say at 1000 hrs the national anthem needs to be played so that every day starts with patriotic fervour. Eventually in the future, as the world gets globalized and even physical attributes to get mixed up and a Utopian equal opportunity and individual protection and security situation get better and we move towards a 'Vasudeva kutumbam' national anthems will lose its significance. Today we are struggling to hold various parts of a Nations together. You have seen EU and it's struggle.|
|An Patriotic Indian said: (Oct 11, 2019)|
|If the national anthem is being played before a movie starts then why not a National anthem before:
A flight takes off
A train journey
At the workplace
A national anthem is a very patriotic feeling. There are places where it should be sung like parade grounds, Schools (where the national is taught), but not cinema houses.
When a national anthem is played then what we do should next have a national feeling like march past, a national game. Flag hoisting, An NGO which makes an effort for better India,
But in a movie house has nothing to do with a patriotic feel.
|Tanaya said: (Aug 29, 2019)|
|I would say that national anthem should be played in the halls, as very seldom we (people doing jobs) get a chance to sing the song in their daily life, the view with a flag in cinema hall increases our patriotism. Also gives us an opportunity to stand and sing, show our feelings. The soldiers die for us and can't we stand and salute this flag, for at least 52 seconds?|
|Chirag Bhutani said: (Aug 23, 2019)|
|According to me, is our country in such a bad state that there is a need to make people remind about their patriotic feeling before a movie? If such is the condition of India, then I don't really think that this idea would be any helpful to make people be more respectful towards the country.
Making people stand forcefully for 52 seconds and then listening some gossips and some hatred words about the country is just a piece of disrespect for all those respectful people who lost everything to build our nation and nothing else.
|Amisha Malviya said: (Aug 20, 2019)|
|The national anthem should not be played in the cinema hall. Patriotism comes out of love and respect for once nation and that cannot be forced to anyone by making them stand up while the national anthem plays and national flag view. Patriotism is felling that comes within us and not told frequently that every time you go to watch a movie you must revive your patriotism.|
|Anju said: (Aug 16, 2019)|
|No, it shouldn't be played in cinema halls. Why, because there is a place where we can show patriotism, there are days where we should show our patriotism. A cinema hall is not the right place to show our patriotism. Because for what purpose we came for in a cinema hall? To watch a movie right? For some entertainment from our routine life. There it is not necessary is my opinion.
|Manish Yadav said: (Aug 9, 2019)|
I respect everyone's opinion but I don't think we should play National anthem in cinema hall instead we must play it in every organization whether it's educational or business, private or government.
I think we should play national anthem under the open sky not under the roof.
These days cinema are not a great cinema, there are too much romance and vulgar things. I don't think it's a respectful step towards our national anthem. But sometimes like the movie such as, Uri, parmanu, mangalyan can include National anthem.
|Anil Sharma said: (Jul 17, 2019)|
|I believe national anthem not only in cinema but should be a part of every social gathering. This is the way to show our patriotism and respect towards the nation. Indian got independence with a lot of sacrifices and we should not to forget these sacrifices. We must respect our independence, we just respect our national anthem. Jai Hind.|
|Naga Sai.Ch said: (Jul 9, 2019)|
I support Ankit's statement.
That is not only a song but also pride to our nation.
Disrespecting it means disrespecting our nation. So many people said why can't you express your patriotism when it is in your heart. I say that it's not a sentence to express it's an emotion of all the Indians. The people to cinema Halls come with another way of mind i.e., for entertainment. But we don't have to combine entertainment and emotion. Those are two different ways By understanding this supreme Court took back his order of compulsory playing NA in cinema Halls. It is optional.
|Arnav said: (Jul 4, 2019)|
|I think it is necessary for us as soldiers patrolling our borders die for us and we can't give 52 sec for them. We can stand in a line for half an hour but we can't stand for 52 secs for our country.|
|Sanyam said: (Jun 29, 2019)|
In my opinion, playing a national anthem means of imparting some sense of patriotism and respect in the citizens for their country. In today's time we hardly get a chance to listen to or recite our national anthem. If it happens before a movie in cinema halls, we all should see it in an optimistic manner. We shall feel the pride of reciting it and be proud of our country, pay respect to our nation and ignore any other thing during that time.
|Pallavi Rajput said: (Jun 26, 2019)|
|According to me, the national anthem should be played in cinema halls. I don't understand why it should not play. People say that patriotism and love for the nation is in the heart. It will true but why are you not express it when you get the opportunity through a song. According to me, until you will not express your love for anything or anyone, no one can understand your feelings. So why are we hesitate to express this feeling? We should pride in that and appreciate such type of things.|
|Ankit said: (Jun 6, 2019)|
|Everyone has their opinion and I appreciate their point of view but according to me, I think we should not play National anthem in the cinema hall because of many reasons.
First and there for the most thing is that National anthem is not a normal song it represents our country so it should not be played under the roof. It should be played in an open area.
Secondly, Whenever someone goes to the cinema hall everyone has their hearts and minds into the movie. At the time No one is interested in the national anthem. So even if it played. It will be just disrespecting the national anthem because no one is interested in listening to the national anthem. So even if it is played in the Hall and everyone is standing just for the sake of it and they are mind is in the movie and they are not singing it from within. Then it's total of no use.
Thirdly, We are living in that time. In which every movie is the same and positive which have all the good things in it. Some movie includes many vulgar scenes and songs. Item songs and many other things. And people come to watch those things with that mind. So it's just Disrespecting the NA. So just playing the national anthem and making people sing it forcefully is not a better option.
Instead what government should do is to make it compulsory to play national anthem in all the organization school colleges. Both (private and government) offices whenever they start the new day.
|Aprajita said: (Apr 29, 2019)|
I think that national anthem must be played before the movie in the cinema halls. As per my point of view, we are spending a lot of time in lots of activities but we never feel the need to give our 52 seconds of a day to give respect to our nation. As far as if we will say that it is a place of entertainment and nobody wants to sing national anthem there forcefully then it means that they had sung the national anthem in the schools also forcefully.
The second thing is that if we are not feeling any problem in standing for long for getting popcorns then we must not feel any problem in standing for 52 seconds for singing our national song. As you will say that the senior citizens will face difficulty in standing then it is meaningless as even the physically unable people who do not have legs to stand sings the national anthem, then why not they?
So, according to me, if we are giving excuses for avoiding to stand just some seconds to show the respect towards our country, then we do not have the right to be known as the citizen of India.
|Rimpi Banerjee J said: (Apr 1, 2019)|
We must play national anthem in CH because most of the cinema halls don't approach such patriotic things like lower level of cinema halls, the Govt must take such steps towards them, parents never feel safe to send their child in such places where they don't show respect, and when we used to sing the national anthem in school, no one stand against NA as we loved to spend more time in such things more than studies, and when it started in cinema halls any are there to refuse to go there, even you go with the family, girlfriend, wife where their such respect is shown everyone feel safe and for that time they remember our brave soldiers.
|Prasanna M said: (Mar 6, 2019)|
The national anthem played in a cinema hall is a nowadays more discussing topic because some people don't have an interested to play national anthem in cinema hall because some are not showing respect because of this reason some people not ready to play the national anthem.
In my opinion government order all pvt Ltd and Ltd companies to play national anthem in their premises before starting their work daily because according to my point of view all can listen daily national anthem irrespective of country all my companies employee can give atleast 2 minutes time to show respect to my national song and its mandatory for all people in government upto age of retirement.
Suggestions to the government of India:
According to me you pass order to all people and organisations to give at least 2 minutes time to play national anthem because all play national anthem in 15th August in companies it shows how they show respect because of this company can take it like daily routine for showing strength to another country because some government officials cannot give respect to national anthem.
|Deepika said: (Feb 25, 2019)|
According to me, Playing national anthem in the cinema hall is the wrong step from the supreme court. Cinema hall is not the perfect place to play the national anthem.
Some rules regarding singing of National anthem were started. The national anthem should always be sung in an open area under the sky.
The national anthem and it's playing time is approximately 52 seconds. The national anthem is also played on certain occasions only.
|Md.Arbaz Sharif said: (Feb 18, 2019)|
|According to me, national anthem not playing in the Cinema Hall.
Because national anthem plays in open place, not under the roof.
And people are going to the cinema hall for enjoying movies, they should not be we forced to listen to national anthem it will reduce their personal freedom.
|Pranav Bhandari said: (Feb 11, 2019)|
|Yes, it should be mandatory to sing the national anthem in cinema, because people do not get time to sing national anthem because of the busy schedule. They can't take out 52second of their day.|
|Sanchit Bansal said: (Jan 21, 2019)|
|According to me, national anthem should not play in cinema halls because national anthem plays in open place not an under the roof. In cinema halls people come for enjoyment and entertainment. If national anthem play in cinema hall and people don't stand, it is insult our national anthem.|
|Prashant Singh said: (Jan 14, 2019)|
According to me National Anthem should be played in Cinema halls as we know nowdays people are so busy in there life that they have no time to think for martyers and our soldiers most of we even can't sing the whole national anthem. And if we can stand in a que for tickets and popcorns than its our duty to stand for our national anthem. If just by standing 52 sec give you a patriotic feeling and enery you must stand. I have read some people arguing that you cannot force national anthem than what these people will say about school in every school daily national anthem is sung so in there view it is forcefully done?
|Shaikh Saddam said: (Jan 8, 2019)|
|First and foremost, Patriotism should not be instilled forcefully or we can not impose it on someone. The love for nation comes through heart, and our nation has great heritage where our thousand of people sacrificed their lives for sake of nation and it's solidarity. We chant national anthem in respect of nation and its culture and history, school, colleges begin there work by playing anthem, almost in all government offices it has been done.
Secondly, theatre is not a official government property, people come there by paying money to get entertainment and refreshment from their daily hectic schedule. We cannot force them to stand them because mind set in almost different, and if we do so then we are imposing forcefully on people. This should not be done and it's not parameter to judge someone nationalism.
|Tvisha Gupta said: (Jan 4, 2019)|
|No, I don't think so that national anthem should be played in cinemas as we know no one stands or pays respect while the national anthem is playing. Children cry people talk, senior citizens sit cause they don't have the energy to stand, and a lot more so indirectly we disobey it.|
|Aditya Jain said: (Dec 26, 2018)|
|According to me, the National Anthem should be played in cinema halls. Not in the cinema halls, I think national anthem was played in all the social gathering so that in this busy life.|
|Richa Bhardwaj said: (Nov 17, 2018)|
|According to me, National Anthem must be played in theatres. It is the need of the hour for today's generation and for all. We all are so much busy in our day to day life as nobody has time to pay homage to our soldiers who have sacrificed their lives for us. The theatre is a good platform to express and show our love and respect towards our own country by just standing for 52 Seconds listening to the National Anthem After all we are Indians it's our national and fundamental duty to pay honour to the country.|
|Himanshu Prasad said: (Nov 5, 2018)|
|Hi everyone, according to me.
The national anthem shouldn't be mandatory in Cinema Hall. Actually, the National anthem represents all about our patriotism. Patriotism is a feeling of love toward the country and it can't be shown but can be expressed. So, If we love our country then we should be ready to pay respect toward it any time. It depends upon people to people whether they want to pay respect any time or not. That's why I said National anthem shouldn't be mandatory.
|Anu said: (Oct 31, 2018)|
|Good afternoon everyone.
According to my view. Its a good intiation by govt that national anthem is compulasary within the movie theater because now a days evary individual is busy in their own life running towards their works even they are not getting time to talk with their families. Then in the tug life of human it is very hard to remember national anthem for them.
Cinema is place where people in this tug life atpeast plan once to watch a movie with their families, loved ones and people gather together and go to film. There is no other place than this where diff kinds of people gather together. Ao this place is correct for playing national anthem.
There are many good people and good films where those also respect country. Not all films and people are not bad. Atleast by this people remember national anthem.
If a humans heart and mind is clean then there is no need to discuss about place and people to Respect the National Anthem.
|Mr Indian said: (Oct 9, 2018)|
|I like to say that national anthem must be played in cinema halls because there will be so many people gathered there, and help them to remember their school days and college days so I suggest that it is a good thing to play national anthem in cinema halls and every Indian would love it and gives them a peace and relaxed mind and help them see the movie without tension and peacefully with full enjoyment.|
|Kashif said: (Oct 8, 2018)|
|Hello everyone, according to me,
Playing of the national anthem in cinema halls should not be mandatory. National Anthem symbolizes love and respect for the country which one harbours in his or her heart. So national anthem should be played in those places where people actually worship their motherland. In movie halls, people mostly come to get themselves entertained and relaxed while munching some eateries. Some even get busy to have fun with their beloved in the corner seat. Should national anthem be played in such an environment where people mostly stand up during the national anthem out of compulsion?
Mostly they stand up to avoid criticism from others. So in such a condition the decorum which should be present is not maintained.
Moreover, patriotism cannot be forcefully instilled in someone's mind. It should come from the very core of our heart and then only we can give the desired respect that our national anthem deserves.
So, I think instead of just standing during the national anthem if one indulge himself in any activity regarding upliftment of society it will be a true gesture of love and respect for the nation and its people.
|Sangeeta said: (Oct 2, 2018)|
|No it should not be Mandatory to play national anthem in the cinema Hall's because It has to be played in the places where it should create respect towards the anthem. One can recall our school days how we used to go to our schools on the occasion of independence day republic day etc. That was all nice time the respect will came from the core of the heart itself. The cinema theatres are the places where one can go to enjoy with there beloved ones. Of course they can stand while playing but most of the cases the respect is not from the heart just to avoid the criticism by the others. That type of respect is not neccessory hence it should not be mandatory.|
|Khalid said: (Oct 2, 2018)|
|Cinema is not a good place because in cinema hall plays many types of movies and every movie is not good if that place we play national anthem that time unrespect our anthem. National anthem is very good song. When we heards we feel peace. So I think this is not good we should respect our national anthem. Thank you.|

Moreover, patriotism cannot be forcefully instilled in someone's mind. It should come from the very core of our heart and then only we can give the desired respect that our national anthem deserves.
So I think instead of just standing during the national anthem if one indulge himself in any activity regarding upliftment of society it will be a true gesture of love and respect for the nation and its people.

|According to me, the national anthem should be played in cinema halls and it is our duty to respect it.
If a person can stand in queue for tickets, he can stand for snacks in interval time then whats the problem in standing for national anthem.
If a person has legs and if they are in stable condition then you must stand.
It is the respect for martyrs.
It is the respect for the soldiers who are standing at the border for the nations safety.
If a person spend his 3 hrs in watching movie then he can also stand for 52 sec.

|In my opinion,
The National anthem should not be made mandatory in the cinema hall. Because national anthem is our salute to motherhood, it makes us to remember those freedom fighters who fought and sacrificed their lives for the freedom of our country.
On one side we are paying tribute to fighters like Rani Lakshmi Bhai. On the other side we are displaying many other Rani's being brutally raped and subject to domestic violence's and abuses. Is this what we meant for?
Though govt made this to inculcate patriotism in people's mind I believe that only that done with a true heart will become fruitful and forcing will not give the desired results.

|In my opinion, the national anthem should be played in the cinema halls. National anthem is just a way to show our love towards our country to remember our freedom fighters who sacrificed their lives for their motherland and for us. When our fighters can sacrifice their lives for their nation so for us it's not a big deal to give a single 2mins for our nation.
In respect of our nation and our leaders We should stand for the national anthem.
|Shruti Gadekar said: (Sep 6, 2018)|
I am Shruti Gadekar. In my opinion, we must respect our country because the freedom fighters sacrificed their lives to get the freedom for the common man. So, standing for 2 minutes in respect to our country will not feel like an awkward thing for us.
So respect our nation.
|Rakesh said: (Sep 4, 2018)|
|In my opinion,
Mostly busy people who need peace for mind go to watch movies. They just go to theatre, enjoy the movie and goes back to their home. Some people like hearing national anthem, some may not.
But when thinking another way, our national anthem itself provides peace for mind. Rabindranath Tagore have made it with beautiful words. In that he has mentioned about the sacred rivers like Ganga, Yamuna which are People who love our country will really love to hear it anywhere and they will show respect. Before watching the movie, people's mind get cooled and they can watch the movie peacefully.
Some people does not realise the magic in our national anthem. So they should realise it.
I conclude by saying that National Anthem should be played in cinema halls.
|Ishan Vyas said: (Sep 4, 2018)|
I'm ISHAN VYAS and in my opinion, it is not mandatory that the national anthem should be played in the cinema halls as if you love your country then the respect will automatically come from your heart. I have seen so many people who burn the public properties of the government so how can you assure that the negative thoughts of people can stand up for their country in this case I think that if they are sent to the border to fight with the enemies then they will definitely surrender themselves, wherever the national anthem is being played everyone should unite to sing but they don't have the time to do this many people say I love my country but they are not showing their loves towards the country as they are showing from the outside that they are for their country but this is not true. Always salute to their motherland as well as their national flag.
|Ab Abhishek Sharma said: (Aug 31, 2018)|
You all gave the wonderful points pertaining to the topic.
But I would like to share my point that National anthem should be played in the cinema halls because we must respect those armed officers who have lost their lives in the wars for saving our nation. In a cinema hall, there are various people sitting in the hall from various communities it is very necessary to unite them with the medium of patriotism so there is nothing bad in playing the national anthem in cinema.
But on the other side it should not be played under the roof where people used to spit eat romance abuses or undue body language.
We have paid a lot for Our national anthem.
It should be played where the respect and honour occurs.
|Meer Iqbal said: (Aug 9, 2018)|
|Good evening dear friends.
First of all, let me tell you what the National Anthem means?
It is the salutations to our motherland. I think it should be played only in those places which maintain the decorum of the National Anthem. But at the same time if we see in the cinema halls people go there for entertainment purposes only and they eat, drink, take corner seats so as to have a romance with Thier loved ones and I think by doing this the decorum which the National Anthem needed is not maintained in cinema halls. So that is why I think it should not be played in cinema halls.
|Ch.Karthik said: (Jul 30, 2018)|
Yes. Because nowadays all the people are busy in the works even they searching time talk to the parents.
And nowadays schools and college also going. All the youth enjoying the cinemas so it is necessary to play the national anthem in the cinema hall.
|Vinay Reddy said: (Jul 15, 2018)|
|Yes, it is necessary that in cinema starting there will be a national anthem because everyone is busy in their busy schedules like office works and students are busy in Facebook and WhatsApp and for their relaxation every one has to watch the movie in that situation they should thought about India incase if it is not played it should be forgotten by everyone and in future we said to our children that a national song was in olden days dinosaur and sparrows.
Respect the national anthem.
And respect India.
|Bhim said: (Jul 14, 2018)|
|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.
|Ranit said: (Jul 10, 2018)|
|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.
|Tamanna said: (Jul 3, 2018)|
|According to me, the national anthem must be played in cinema hall If you love your country can't you give your only 1min to show your love for your national 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 and bank. Uneducated & village people they don't know the national anthem at least in this way, they will know what is the national anthem.|
|Bindu said: (Jun 30, 2018)|
|Hi, I'm Bindu,
I think just 2mn of standing is not enough to show our patriotic towards India. And it's not an actual correct way. By doing these formalities may not shows our respect.
|Sai Prashanth said: (Jun 26, 2018)|
|I agree with you, @Nil Patel.
1 min of respect is not enough to respect our nation.
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.
Minimum people will change this in my opinion.
|Indian said: (Jun 23, 2018)|
|Yes, one should stand whenever it is sung or is heard even at a distant place because it is our national pride. But make sure to stand with a sentiment of being a proud Indian. Jai Hind.|
|Nil Patel said: (Jun 14, 2018)|
According to me, the national anthem must be played in cinema halls.
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.
|Akash Singh said: (Jun 10, 2018)|
|Hello friends, I agree to all as considering opinion I would like to say The National anthem should mandatory not in cinema halls because peoples come for enjoyment of 2 hours but they stand 2minute more for national anthem actually they respect of our anthem and those people who are not educated also they learn how to respect of National Anthem.|
|Anantha Vishnu Cs said: (Jun 8, 2018)|
|I'm Anantha Vishnu.
In my point of view, national anthem should play in cinema halls. , because national anthem makes us patriotic, as an Indian if we are able to stand 42 seconds it has a pride and no pain in it. And that my opinion. That's it. Jaihind.
|Aayush Sharma said: (Jun 5, 2018)|
|I think obviously, Yes, national anthem should be played in cinema halls it is the price of our nation and according to me, every citizen who respects national anthem shouldn't have any problem with that as it shows our history our culture. And it gives the feeling of patriotism it keeps us united it should be played anywhere it is possible and we should respect that Jai Hind Hai Bharat.|
|V@Ibh@V said: (Jun 2, 2018)|
|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.|
|Amit Majumdar said: (May 31, 2018)|
|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.|
|Prasad said: (May 29, 2018)|
In My point of view,
My decision is national anthem playing in a cinema hall is a good decision.
We are enjoying in cinema hall 2hrs we can't stand 2mins.
Uneducated people, village people they don't national anthem.
At least in this way, they will know what is the national anthem.
|Raj said: (May 28, 2018)|
|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.
|Akansha Nigam said: (May 28, 2018)|
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.
|Dhananjay said: (May 28, 2018)|
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.
Where the new generation of India will learn the value of this.
|Nikita Sharma said: (May 9, 2018)|
|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.
|Darshan Rajshekar said: (May 8, 2018)|
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.
Show true patriotism by serving our country.
|Abhishek Singh said: (May 6, 2018)|
I Abhishek Singh and my views are yes the national anthem should be played in cinema halls first of all, we are an Indian and national anthem is our pride. But I think it should not be compulsory every person is standing when the national anthem played it depends on that if they want to stand or not.
The main thing is that we need to sing the national anthem to pay tribute to those people who ruined their lives to gain freedom for us.
|Santhosh said: (May 5, 2018)|
I am going to discuss our national anthem played in the cinema hall.
Actually, in India, half of the people they don't know about our national anthem only educated peoples know about this anthem so all related peoples are going to watch movies in that time national anthem played in cinema hall then peoples are known about this anthem.
Cinema hall is the best option for our anthem should be known to everyone.
|Vikrant Singh said: (May 2, 2018)|
|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.
|Mohd Altaf said: (Apr 30, 2018)|
|According to me, every religion person in India is Proud to be an Indian. Singing A National anthem in Cinema Hall doesn't prove to be an Indian. As we Respect our Religion we Respect our Country. As we respect our religion culture we respect our Indian culture.
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.
|Dhioshmati Devi said: (Apr 23, 2018)|
|Hi, I am Dhioshmati Devi, Assam. This is not an issue to point out that we are the Indians. If it plays, never arises any questions of one's profit or loss. India is a democratic country, so no one compelling upon other one's respect to his/her nation. It is the tribute to our country by internal respect. It should not be playing by any demands, pressure. If one wishes, it may play peacefully as a true patriot.|
|Shailesh Jaiswar said: (Apr 18, 2018)|
|In my opinion, national anthem should be played in cinema halls.
Becouse now a days everyone is busy in their daily life. So this is the place for them.
In the era we are living in this time people are becoming so smart. But they are going away from culture.
And every type of people come in cinema halls so atleast they what our national anthem is.
So in my opinion, playing national anthem in cinema halls are very good decision.
|Badavath Thirupathi said: (Apr 18, 2018)|
|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.
|Venkatesulu said: (Apr 16, 2018)|
|I disagree this because cinema hall is for entertainment in that they play the movies like 'A' grade or 'B' movies in that we insulting our nation.
Some people like adults they do not give the respect for the national anthem without standing.
Showing the respect to our motherland in a cinema hall is not a right place.
|Shubham Rangdal said: (Apr 16, 2018)|
|Hello, I am Shubham.
According to my opinion, Yea sure, National anthem must be played in cinema halls it's a great decision.
Nowadays peoples are very busy in their daily life and this is a great privilege for that guys.
After Higher secondary education no one can play or sings the national anthem, So, in that way they can respect our culture.
And its no more big deal for stands up 2 minutes only.
In another way its a great privilege for respect our constitution.
|Sakshi Agrawal said: (Apr 13, 2018)|
I am Sakshi Agrawal and in my opinion yes the national anthem should be played in cinema halls first of all we are an Indian and national anthem its proud full song for song. 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.
|Dsk said: (Apr 7, 2018)|
Absolutely NO, We all know that we respect our nation and we all are proud to be an Indian, so it's not required to prove that in the theatre because we go there just for an entertainment.
|Sajid said: (Apr 5, 2018)|
|I don't think that playing national anthem in Cinema hall will give the certificate of patriotism. We know that our national anthem has respect. Playing national anthem in a cinema hall isn't suitable as it is an entertaining palace but our national anthem isn't an entertainment.
Cinema hall contains various types of films, no doubt some films are civilized but some contain vulgarities. Is that such palace where we want to listen our national anthem?
|Deepak Rana said: (Mar 22, 2018)|
|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.
|Govind Jadhav said: (Mar 17, 2018)|
|According to my perspective.
National anthem should be played in cinema halls. Those leaders who have fought their entire life for our nation for independence. Nowadays as we all know our youth is 60percent out of 100 percent now a days youth often visit to cinema halls ithink it a good step to show patriotism. It bring us unity integrity brotherhood among the people. So, many people are saying it is not right place those people I want to say I think they do not belong to India. It hardly take 52 seconds. National anthem should be played India forever.
Jai Bharat Mata.
|Anu said: (Mar 15, 2018)|
|Yes, I agree with this. As we are all concluding or ending our functions with the national anthem. So here also national anthem must be played.|
