Schizophrenia?

Why is every "crazy" person in Hindi movies labeled as "schizophrenic"?

gud question?

dont hindi movies go on a trend - once one movie with a particular concept is "hit" then everyone wants to use it.....

wait and watch - next few movies will all be about dyslexia or parent child relationship following TZP....(yeh akashwani hai)

Hmm it is a way to gain sympathy of the watchers.. this way they feel plain idiots coz they have no problems but still have many problems :)

in some cases they feel emotional and cry and say that it is a heart warming one [like me ...emotional fool]

like ceedy said.. we can look at TZP1, TZP2, TZP3.. etcc ;B

well as layman in medical/science field.....I and most of us only knows "Schizophrenia?" as they showed in Beautiful mind and copied on to hindi movie so its easier to explain to ppl...

@ Ceedy, Haha! This is funny!

@ Veens, Schizophrenics gain sympathy? I thought they instill bewilderment.

@ ME, you sound schizophrenic. LOL!

@ KP, I am sure if they introduce more concepts, the public will get to learn more as opposed to generalizing that mad=schizophrenic.

@ Lostweasley, yes. Especially the ones with Urmila in them..Kaun, Pyar Tune Kya Kiya..etc etc etc.

Haha it's cause the first few copied from an english movie that had a schizo and then all the hindi movies copied it from the first few hindi movies that were made - let someone watch a few more movies with other mental illnesses.

Trying to find logic or make sense of hindi movies could be diagnosed as "crazy" :)
