Allow the guy to express his feelings. I think even if something of this nature is discussed here, we need to give him a chance to say what he wants to say. Many thanks Husna.

Quote from: HUSNAA on July 28, 2007, 10:04:38 AMLol I cant stop laughing at what yr seven yr old brother said!! It so so so hilarious coming from a seven yr old!! hahahaha!! Amma what you seemed to have done is underestimate his intelligence, and u think that bcos he is saying that, it is necessarily a bad thing or will have a bad effect on him. But you seemed not to realize that he is actually complaining against something that the bride of the actor is doing, which is also frowned upon Islamically. So how can you fault yr brother for being aware of that at an early age? Dont you know that children kept in utter ignorance are the ones that are most vulnerable and in the greatest danger of being molested? Bama haka ba wani yaron will run throu the gamut of hausa films without ever appreciating anything. Anyway abar zancan haka. ;D Ni dai I am of the view that 'yan wasan Hausa ba su suke lalata al'ada ba; kwaikwayon abinda suka ga anayi ne a cikin al'umma. Kuma as it is, har gara in bar 'yayana suyi ta kalon wasan Hausa da in barsu su kalli wasan kwaikwayon bature. Abin na bani mamaki. Wai sai kaga an nuna western film inda matan a practically naked (bay watch for example) kokuwa there is a full headon kissing scene and sai kaga no one bats an eyelid as kids and adults alike gaze raptly at the tv. Which is worse then? A graphic representation of what one is trying to avoid, ko kuwa an indirect reference to it? The whole point of this is that wasan Hausa will continue to go down the same road what ever anyone says, unless we stop watching them. That way if there is no market for them, then they will disappear. However something is bound to replace them, just like wasan Hausa replaced indian films to a large degree as the medium of entertainment for the average Hausa person. Now supposing they are replaced by what is considered proper Hausa films which expound what our culture is all about, then we have to ask what is it that our culture entails? Sa abaya har kasa for women and yin lullubi all the time in the films? Ok that is achievable. Ok ba raye raye in the films like they do in Indian films ko? OK that is also achievable, but what about the kidan kalangu, da 'yammata suna ayyaraye? isnt that an ingrained part of Hausa culture? What about kidan goge (kamar garba supa?) isnt that part of Hausa culture? Are these necessarily good Hausa cultural things. What about 'yan daudu suna rawa a gidan buki? isnt that part of Hausa culture? Kuma in any case if one is going to tell a story, in a proper Hausa movie, should it always have a moral? As immoral acts are well known and in general, can be limited to something like the ten commandments... no adultery, no thievery, no coveting other ppl's things, no talking behind someone's back etc, then it means that there are only so many films one can do without becoming too repetitive and therefore boring. Ko da yake most Hausa films na yanzu centre around the theme of love, but it seems that love universally is one subject that no one ever tires of hearing about. So if we are not about to tell stories of morality all the time in the proper hausa movies then it means we have to tell stories about human frailty and normal human behavior and there is no way then u cannot introduce all the flaws of human nature which is only natural and which is one of the things that Rais's brother seemed to have understood in which ever film he was watching and commenting upon. So there is no escaping it.. Let's look at ourselves and our own behaviors and tell ourselves that we are exceptional model examples of good Hausa culture... are we?
Quote from: Abdalla on July 31, 2007, 12:17:57 AM"Reflecting the society" is another refrain, perhaps not surprisingly, from the producers and actors themselves. Yet I feel -- in a situation where, as a public anthropologist I don't have the luxury of feeling -- this is a statistically skewed representation. The core of the objections as I repeatedly indicate, is in the mode of dressing shown by the actresses, not even in the storylines or stage settings. I live in Kano, and I have to two daughters in their late teens (pity me, eh?). I don't see them dressing the way the film actresses do as REPRESENTATIVE of Hausa girls. Okay, maybe I have greater control over my own children. But I teach in a University -- as liberal a place as you can find, and I still don't see what the film industry claims to be "the society". The majority of the girls who dress in the way the film actresses do are, like the actresses, transethnics or non-Hausa. My family house is in Daneji, right in the heart of the city, and I drive there almost daily. The same thing. The point I am trying to make is I would like to know the PERCENTAGE of Hausa girls who dress the way the film actresses claims are common dressing behaviors, and then I would want to know how GENERALIZABLE is that that ALL MUSLIM HAUSA girls? Unless we sort this out, we are insulting the vast majority of Muslim Hausa girls who accept their Islamic values of modest dressing in public spaces.
