He might be alive, or at least saw the pop in 2000s
You are correct.
Yeah, I think those youth belonged to upper class family or at least theschool standard was high back then.
Not about upper class. In those days there were teachers who were British or the schooling at least in the cities had the direct remnants of British environment. The accent was because of that atmosphere. Now the schooling is desi'fied so the accent reflects the student's family environment, the community environment and the modern fashion environment.
Compare the accents of Nehru and Jinnah with today's accents of even the urbanites from the current desi political class. A drastic difference.
So at least in language schooling you are right that the standard was good.
The most disheart one the girl who thinks she can't become an actress. Probably bcz she is not beautiful (she is btw). Now, at least good acting skills land you in film career. 05:19
Yeah, she was charming. And I agree that now good acting skills can lead to success too. Look at Shahrukh Khan, not really a good-looker but his early roles led him to success.
The most realistic boy was who was saying that we are just chest thumping and feeling good by comapring it with British rule. 06:10 guy said somewhere.
Watched that bit again and I agree with him. Even in those days, Germany and Japan coming out from war devastation were so much more advanced than India which hadn't seen war touching almost all its regions. India had no excuse not be developed. The blame lay in the non-industriousness and non-enthusiasm of most of its people.
