Do Disclaimers Work

By Abhijit Bhaduri
There are two kinds of films. Some begin with a disclaimer that says “All characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.”Stating that upfront reduces the possibility of being taken to court by any person who believes that he or she has been libeled via their portrayal in the work. But does that actually serve to make someone more eager to watch a film? Is denying resemblance a way to get the audience to the movie theater? And there are others that announced that the film is based real incidents. Which one is more effective in suspending disbelief – the real purpose of every story?
