2014 was the year of selfies, belfies and selfie sticks. 2015 was greeted with a new trend – dubsmash. An app that lets you take a selfie video wherein you can lip-sync a song or a dialogue from a movie, Dubsmash has become the new the selfie. The Dubsmash craze spread amongst the youth like wildfire. Not only the youth but even celebrities were not spared of the appealing and entertaining Dubsmash virus. Popular stars like Alia Bhatt, Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh, Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Adam Levine, Hugh Jackman, etc. and many more have posted their crazy but fun-filled dubsmash videos on their official Instagram pages. Soon enough, people all over the world have started making comical dubsmash videos of themselves and flooded social media by posting them online.
Today, as crazy as it seems, Dubsmash has become an acting platform for most people. Not only is this app fun but also is something which is different than the other social media applications which are a trend today. Dubsmash is a good stress buster and also a fun frolic which helps people to display their crazy side to friends and family through mediums like facebook and instagram. All those who wished they were actors or that they would be better suited for a role, can now prove so by choosing their dialogue and acting upon it in the video. In a way, this can also be used for screening good actors from bad ones when casting for a show or movie. It seems like a far-fetched impossible idea, but who would have thought of making an app for making dubbed selfie videos either? It is for all those aspiring actors or the hidden ones who would like to showcase their talents but haven’t found a platform yet. Dubsmash is the platform they needed. We have all heard stories about how youtubers have become popular simply by posting their videos on YouTube. Keeping that in mind, it is not going to be long before people who regularly use dubsmash also become popular and get recognised for their acting through their dubsmash videos.
Besides being a nice platform for young budding actors, Dubsmash is fun, entertaining and comical. It is a great way to pass time, add fun to daily routine and reminisce the olden days of the movie that the dialogue belongs to. There are also several songs on which dubsmash can be recorded. The current hit in the dubsmash trend is the Nana Patekar frustrated dialogue and also Paresh Rawal’s comedy dialogue from the bollywood movie, Hera Pheri. Each day you visit a social media site you will definitely find one person uploaded his video created by dubsmash. So as much as we hate it and its influence on the generation today, platforms like Dubsmash can actually be useful if used in the right fields for the right purposes. Dubsmash is unique and gives people an opportunity to try something different out not just for fun but also to gather some compliments for the hidden talent of acting. Who knows this could simply be a chance for someone to rise and shine in the fields of acting and dubbing?
