M G Road + H Siddiah Road



No hands-free comfort for them. Like Hindu Gods and Godesses, angry young and not so young film stars need to hold something in their hands to symbolise their power. Usually it's oversized swords, chains and other tools of rowdyism (pictures here). But the ultimate weapon to hold is the gun. Seen above is the poster boy of gun culture in India - Sanjay Dutt staring from behind an autorikshaw.  And here's a devotee of guns from Sandalwood (Kannada Film Industry) showing off his weapon.  





These are clips from the 1995 French movie called La Haine. It's a story of 3 young men from a Paris ghetto. It's about how their lives change when they happen to lay their hands on a gun during a riot.

Very striking pictures of same magnitude as the topic, flavored with great text to describe.

Excellent.

The connect. You have it right. We have to move from one medium to the other-collide their traits so to say to draw yet another meaning. And it does not matter whether it's paris or chennai.
