Jana Gana Mana before playing in the cinema hall, a sign flashes on the screen, asking audience members to stand against. This sign is usually accompanied by an unfortunate buzz – no one wants to get up. Members of the audience, get up, ponderously find place to prop up their popcorn and Coke with hard, noisy put their bags on the floor and wind around a bit before finally sustained attention.
Cinemas as PVR, faced with rule, made them a mission to the national anthem as involving as they can within the parameters of the song. Some have a small army of television actors singing with fixed smiles; and the other shows the school physically challenged children, reciting a hymn through sign language.
The latest example is the PVR's "crowd source" the national anthem. It shows a young rock band floating around Youtube link to their performance of the song. Everyone who receives it stops and stands for whether they do yoga or wait for their sex in Elevator Elevator.Screengrab Youtube video PVR in the new crowd-sourced national anthem.

Apparently all these experiments was not Government in the shower. Maharashtra Government has asked colleges and multiplexes "maintain uniformity during the broadcast, play or sing the national anthem. Protocol Minister Suresh Shetty also said that CD of anthems, as he played in the State legislature will be issued to them to make sure there are no changes in the melody of the anthem.
"Version of the anthem played in Parliament or a state legislature is, as it should be. Government offices, schools, colleges and multiplexes can playback CD we release or use it to practice singing so that motiv and step in accordance with the correct version of the anthem, "said Shetty, according to the times of India
"I noticed that melody and pitch the national anthem is not consistent in educational institutions and theatres. Government regulation will be issued to ensure that the national anthem is played in eksur, "Shetty said in the same article. "We will first consider the schools and then at the multiplexes." the head of an educational institution went on to praise the move for this article, saying that it will help "preserve the sanctity of the hymn.
This step seems like a surge by the State Government. At no point can the version of the national anthem that played in multiplexes, said to be disrespectful – or for that matter, even bad. They verge sometimes maudlin, but it presumably will be occupational hazards during the expression of patriotism. In fact, for the most part "other" version seems to be at least garner attention wandered the average movie goer. That attention is a requirement for any patriotic stirrings happen, which presumably is the desired effect of the national anthem.
Secondly, various versions of the national anthem were the norm for a long time. AR Rehman version is well known and does not adhere to the "official" long 52-second anthem. In addition to the 2011 year, Pranab Mukherjee was nominated by Jana Gana Mana version. This version was eight minutes set a different music and sung by 39 artists.
TV channels, musicians, music labels and kids with guitars have different versions of the anthem. You just have to go to Youtube to find hundreds of versions of the song (as well as several textbooks) on how to perform the song on the guitar. Because the words and feelings as well, this is important, if the song is accompanied by drums or flute?
The argument that can be made is that because movie theaters and colleges are in the public domain, you should save the uniformity of the song. But what really is the other side of the argument – because the hymn to the audience plays already well-versed with the anthem, not the different versions available to their audience?
The State has always handled the domestic public expression with kid gloves, as if it's something fragile, that can be compromised. However, this move is incredibly counterproductive. People take anthem and makes its own, interpreting it in a way that is relevant to their own lives, but apparently it is an expression of individualism was the most unpatriotic.
