Shekhar Kapoor Shares His Views On AI As He Asks ChatGPT To Write ‘Masoom’ Sequel Script, Here Is What He got

‘Masoom’ by Shekhar Kapur is a film that stands out in the history of Indian cinema because of its exceptional execution. The 1983 film, which demonstrates Kapur’s skill as a director. The film’s plot, performances, and technical components were all handled deftly, leaving viewers with a memorable experience.

The movie received a distinctive twist and is currently regarded as a cult masterpiece. Shekhar showed on Instagram how he used ChatGPT to test its functionality while providing a prompt for the plot of the movie’s follow-up.

The storyline left the filmmaker quite unsatisfied, but he was astonished by AI’s innate comprehension of the movie and its concepts. He shared a still from the film and wrote, “There’s so much talk about AI ( Artificial Intelligence), and how it’s going even take over creative writing, that I decided to test it. I asked ChatGPT to come up with a story for Masoom 2 – the next generation .. my next film and was amazed at AI’s intuitive understanding of the film and the themes behind it .. in AI’s version Rahul ( played by Jugal Hansraj) always carried the angst of why he was rejected by his father initially .. but then grows up and gets married .. but not till he has kids of his own, does he realise the pressures his father had when they first found each other .. and finally forgives his father.”

“Thankfully my story is far better than AI’s .. yet remember that CHATGPT does not see Video .. but within 30 secs had read everything that was ever written about Masoom .. and conjured up a credible moral dilemma for little Rahul and delivered a cohesive plot line .. in 30secs,” he wrote.

Further, Kapur, also shared how AI was far from comprehending human emotions while giving the results to the prompt. “Again, and thankfully, AI could not come up with a better and more emotional plot line/story than I did.. so I am still far more creative than AI. But I can see why the writers are striking in Hollywood .. for apparently AI is capable of delivering a credible plotline for series episodes! Phew! I’d better make some more films fast before AI catches up with my creativity,” he concluded.

Erich Segal’s 1980 novel Man, Woman, and Child was made into the 1983 drama directed by Shekhar Kapur as well as the Malayalam film Olangal and the American film Man, Woman, and Child. Along with Tanuja, Supriya Pathak, and Saeed Jaffrey, Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi play the key parts in the movie. Jugal Hansraj, Aradhana, and Urmila Matondkar, three young performers, appear in it.
