y a hero is a hero?!

last thursday night i was watching a movie with my friend Amit. the name of the movie is not important. as in all movies, the hero somehow dont get hurt or get killed. so the question and criticism came- "a hero never dies because the director/writer wants it like that (or atleast doesnt die until the end of the movie). its so silly and unnatural."

i wanted to explain the fact in just a littel different angle. lets define hero. a dictionary says - ...In Mythology and folklore, a hero (male) or heroine (female) is an eminent character who quintessentially embodies key traits valued by its originating culture. The hero commonly possesses superhuman capabilities or idealized character traits which enable him or her to perform extraordinary, beneficial deeds (i.e., a "heroic deed") for which he or she is famous.

in my words, almost everyone is hero/heroine in his/her life. because he/she is the main character. in movies a hero never gets killed till the end because its his story. if he is dead the story ends. if the story ends in the middle then its not worth creatin a movie about him. so only those who are successul in the quest they have in lives, are the heroes. movies are created of their stories. and thus they dont die, though everyone around them are just fallin apart.

NB: dont scold me pls...:P
