Remember as kids, how difficult it was to convince your parents to watch a movie of your choice? Especially desi films that had ‘adult scenes’? Well, I remember persuading my mom to let me watch the adult comedy ‘Masti’ with my friends. Of course, I first convinced her that the movie was about the fun that friends have together.
Speaking of which, twitter user Arun Bothra recently shared how he convinced his mom to watch Dharmendra & Amitabh Bachchan starrer movie ‘Ram-Balram’ by saying it was a religious movie. Now, anybody who has seen the film will know that it’s far from religious. Of course, the name can be deceiving. 😛
Convinced mother to take us to watch Dharmendra & Amitabh Bachchan starrer movie Ram-Balram. Only after watching sometime she could realise that it was not a religious movie 😅 pic.twitter.com/IJZQ5NWhlR

Hilariously many desis related with his tweet and shared how they also twisted the truth to watch certain movies during their childhood.

Tried convincing my grandmother to let me see Ram Teri Ganga Maili because it was a religious film. Was vacationing with Baba-Dadi in the village. My folks weren’t around, and the opportunity was just right. Only, Baba was too smart to figure what I was up to. All labour lost! 🙂

My grandmother in Varanasi managed to sneak out to watch ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ with her attendant, after taking a holy bath and chanting prayers. Imagine her shock when the movie turned out to be so different from her perceptions!
