The Laughter Disease
Review – Joker
A cold-blooded killer, we have seen Joker’s character in Batman. Now, we see him in a film that tells us how a smiling face, doesn’t mean a happy soul. A man, works hard to be a well-known comedian, but, no one laughs at his jokes. Abused in his childhood, he still tries to spread happiness all over the world but is unsuccessful. But, a gun comes into the frame, that transforms him from a weak, boring man to a killer clown. He realizes how being “the bad person” will make people take note of him than being Mr. Goody two-shoes.
It starts with a crime in the train, where he kills three rich young men when they are trying to harass a lady. The Joker, starts to become a famous killer and much loved too. He becomes a hero of the masses. Watch the film to know that laughter doesn’t mean that all is well.
