Chennai. Rahul Venkatraj, a common man from North Chennai paid a hefty price for underestimating the power of a superstar. In addition to the INR 350 charged by the multiplex, he also had to subsequently shell out INR 700 in analgesics and pain killers.
Rahul succumbed to peer pressure and finally watched a well advertised movie starring a well known superstar this Sunday. He had earlier resolved not to fall in the trap of glib advertising and mass marketing.
Another one, Kolkata based common man, Rahul Ghosh, who is still searching for the fundamental rights he was promised in Standard IX prior to shifting to Mamata Public School claimed he was devastated by his decision to board the Chennai Express.
On his way out of the theater, he was seen shouting on a journalist who had asked him about his experience, “I have worked as a security guard at the Eden Gardens for 15 years now. Ami oke Chharbo na.”
Even Delhi based Rahul Aggarwal’s elation was short-lived. Within minutes of seating in the Chennai Express, came the two lead actors, Mohan and Sonia.
He sat through the Bharat Nirman trailer watching the duo use their superpower to eradicate poverty, create employment, and reduce fuel prices all with the wave of a single hand. After surviving this ordeal, he was made to see lungs squeezed to extract tar and a series of other disturbing visuals. He immediately realized why there wasn’t enough left to build roads in his locality.
Rahul, whose name by now you might have already heard a zillion times, was in shock by the time the main feature started. Little did he know that it could get worse.
There was no chain on this express he could pull to save himself. By the end of the journey, all the Rahuls, who form 12% of Indian population, have collectively decided never to board the train again. The struggling airline sector has welcomed this decision.
Aam Aadmi Party who have been using the – don’t underestimate the power of a common man – slogan so far have been deeply offended. They have decided to put their logo to use and protest against this.
However, some experts tell Faking News that the protests too were powered by a superstar and were witnessed in some multiplexes in form of Satyagrah. The common man finally realized that he shouldn’t have underestimated the power of a superstar.
