For making a film, directors usually take inspiration from books, real life events, or whip up a completely fictional story from scratch. And when directors have a great story at hand, it sort of becomes difficult for them to cut short the film and convey the story within 2 hours. While doing this, many small but important elements of the story, which make the foundation of the plot strong, either get diluted or excluded from the film. In short, if the movie is edited well, it will definitely come to life on the silver screen and create a lasting impact. But, if that doesn’t happen, the actual soul of the story gets mutilated, leaving the audience disappointed.
If you look over the years, there have been a lot of films that have managed to hit the right note with the audience. And if given a chance, these films can very well be converted into hit TV shows that will now reveal all the intricate details of the plot, throughout the seasons, which somehow got lost during the editing stages of the film.
