Q.

After reading a good book, when that is released as a movie why do we still go and watch???? Is it because we want to play the role of critic and see how loyal the movie is to the book???? Or what else???

Now a days I see very few movies; infact, hardly any movies at all. But when I used to see these movies, some of which were based on great fictional novels written by Ken Follet, Sydney Sheldon, Leon Uris, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, James Clavell, then later Dan Brown etc, I always thought, one should have read the book before seeing the movie. It is not that we would then miss the suspense. There is more to it as I see it and for that reason alone I do that. Opinions may vary on this and each one is right by his or her own way as they look at this and how they would like to enjoy the movie.

An english movie that is generally not more than 2 hours, there is only so much of the story that they can build into that. The books in essence details out the scenario, the background, the characters in such details that when we see the movie, we feel we are floating along with the script. We would get to understand the 'gaps' that are always there in movies which one would generally never fi ...more

When we read a book we visualise it in our own way.When we get an opportunity to see the same book released as a movies we immediately go and watch it to see if it has matched with the way we visualied it.But mostly we dont get the true essence of the book ,how ever well the movie is made.Mostly the movie fullfills the commercial requirement than the literrary value and fails to explore the real treasure hidden inside the book

See it varies in different cases...like when i read The da vinci code.....i was pretty sure that for the average indian reader it will be difficult to understand ,....but when it was made into a movie......and finally dubbed in hindi....people actually went and appreciated the concept..

same applies for Q&A by vikas sawrup..

who knew it b4 it was made into slumdog millionaire?

so mostly its out of curiousity....

like rite now i'm curious that will the movie " 3 idiots" do justice to the book "5 points some1?"

I don't go to see the movie version of the book I have read.But some people go probably to see how far the movie has been true to the book.

Its your anxiety. Because while reading the book, we have made a picture in our mind. This is the anxiety to watch it matched with reality or not.

I think we enjoy a movie much more than a book as visual media is much more pwerful tha print medai.and if we already have read the book we enjoy the movie more.however your point is also correct to some extent.
