The exciting portal of entertainment

Have you uploaded a funny, cranky video with dubsmash as yet? From B-town bigwigs to some famed sports and culture icons and others, everybody who is a somebody, novice or tech-savvy, is part of the dubsmash fever, which currently has the social media in a thrall.

While interactive applications like Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, have been responsible for getting people addicted and hooked to social media, dubsmash seems to have taken over all the hashtags, likes and comments, in recent times.

Nineteen-year-old Prabhsimran Kaur Thukral, a student of Delhi University says, “When I got to know about the app, I used to make as many as 15 videos in a day!” An active participant in the debating society of her college, Thukral considers dubsmash as an effective platform to showcase her acting skills alongside, before her friends and social circle.

“The makers of this app have come up with a very innovative idea wherein one can cherish the love for their favourite Bollywood celebrities and try a hand at performing arts, at the same time,” she adds happily.

Comparing it with the diminishing selfie fad, Instagram and Facebook, Thukral says, “how much can one upload selfies and still pictures? A selfie or a still photograph can never entertain or sustain one’s interests as much as a video can do. Dubsmash is definitely a different kind of entertainment for everyone,” she tells Metrolife.  Similarly, Amandeep Saluja, 21, feels that, “the 10-15 seconds’ video clip offers way too much variety for all social media enthusiasts.”

“Here in India, Gaurav Gera’s ‘shopkeeper’ and Kareena Kapoor’s Jab We Met dialogues are so popular that every girl tries her acting skills at it. I got so hooked on to Datto’s video clips from Tanu Weds Manu, that it took me half an hour to master that dialogue and once I dubsmashed it, it was a victorious moment for me!” she rejoices.

Similar are the views of 23-year old Ashwerya Singh Panwar, who says everyone in India has ‘a hidden desire and craze to be a part of Bollywood.’ “The app gives a platform to people to lip-sync and live the dialogues, or songs or even cartoon characters that they have always been fond of. Who doesn’t try to memorise their favourite dialogues like, Mujhe jangli billiyan bahut pasand hai...I love wild cats...?” she laughs.Reflecting on her current addiction for the app, Panwar says, “I am completely in love with the fun element that dubsmash adds to something that I really love, without extensive editing programs.”

However, Harshit Sharma, 23, another student says, “I never dubsmash alone. I love making videos with my friends or my sister, because for me, having fun is all about spending time with my loved ones and laughing over it again and again!”

One feels the everlasting impact that a mere app can have on the youth these days. Entertainment surely has evolved as something entirely different and unique as compared to what it used to be a few years ago.

For all those who are still alien to the trending dubsmash frenzy, try the amazing and fun time-pass with your friends and family, today!
