TV serials have brought down India's cultural level: Adoor
Kolkata: Adoor Gopalakrishnan criticised Indian television for having "brought down the cultural level of the country".
Speaking to reporters at the 19th Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF) that began Sunday, the icon expressed his disapproval of the current crop of sitcoms and serials shown on television.
Slamming the TV shows, he said that "instead of increasing the taste of the audience, exactly the opposite happened because the programs were dull, drab and obnoxious."
"It has brought down the cultural level of the country...," he added.
Nine films of Adoor are being screened in the retrospective segment of the festival that is also showing experimental films of young filmmakers till Nov 17.
