Director Todd Phillips reigned all the critics for his film Joker. Joaquin Phoenix who played this role and revitalized all the sensibilities of film lovers across globe.

The writer of this film confess it is the inspiration from Martin Scorsese’s film Taxi Driver and King of comedy.  A writer always get inspired by the characters. It is one of the best example when a writer is getting inspired by the human quality or emotions. The portrayal of Joker character along with sociology-economic background makes us think what is wrong? The script compel us to rethink on laughing,

I will call it a milestone film, which will make think other scriptwriters to go close to the real life of ordinary people. The year 2019 has been famous for many reasons, this year there are many films made on near reality of ordinary characters. As said by Andrei Tarkavosky, “cinema is a reflection of society”. I see the World Cinema is getting mature by every year. The inspiration from Taxi Driver to Joker and the different character from Batman film Joker make the very character of Joker more real.

Batman film which are the adaptation of DC comics and since 1989 to 2020 we are having the franchise of these film making new fantasy experiments. One single character of the comic and film of 1989 makes film lovers think. Later the writers wield their pen to rescue their imagination. It came on paper. The insensitive and insane techno-friendly times we see a man who fight to earn his bread and butter. Struggle to find his simple moment of happiness. Film sans all action, techno savvy characters, lavish sets, big cars and larger than life special effects. This film seems so real that it makes you enjoy this black comedy much after once you have watched.

Lately, I see Joker 2019 as a representation of  a common man, who is fighting to meet the both ends. It is the representation of a promising student who become professional and face the gruesome reality which is not taught in school  or at home. After a long time I watched a Black Comedy on large screen.
