7 hours to go – spot the blunder


This Indian Bollywood movie that released last week has some errors in detailing. This particular post talks about the incorrection seen in the above movie advertisement poster. What looks out of place to you?

The female protagonist has an improper way of handling the gun she is holding, or shall we say guns. Why two guns? Two guns cannot give a tactical advantage. Having one hand in the dominant or master hand would be the ideal way to shoot. The second gun can only be for backup ammunition, so why not carry that backup as a cartridge in the pocket? And with one gun weighing atleast 750gm – 1kg, can the lady shoot right with so much weight in her hands? And if the intention of the shot is to show the lady ready to shoot, as the rest of her body language is conveying, why is her left hand index finger not on the gun trigger? Small details matter, and how you project the body language of the actors can make or break your advertisement and your movie. Research suggests nonverbals make up for more than 80% of what we wish to communicate.

Next time, get your nonverbals right!
