Movie maniac

Hello.

I just turned the A.C on and made myself a cup of tea. Finally I am sitting to write my post from M. And who has helped me once again to decide the topic. M for Mother! She suggested to write about movies as I am a hardcore, die hard, massive, mad, movie buff. 

Yes I am. 

Well not crazy as such. Naah. Pretty crazy. I have seen most of the movies existing. Good and bad. But most of them are Indian Cinema. (I mean Bollywood but I don't like calling it bollywood) I also watch loads of english cinema too. So basically anything playing anywhere, I have to watch it. K and I both share this love for movies. Every weekend you will find us in a movie theatre with a tub of popcorn, samosas and a much needed glass of Coke. Our weekends are incomplete without a movie so that's become a ritual of our relationship since three years. 

Now when I say I love movies, I meant that I even love watching the crappiest ones. So yes, I have seen Alone, Hisss, Jaani Dushman (5 times), Main Prem ki Diwani Hoon (10 times), and many more atrocious cinema. I have seen these alone on my laptop/ television as people I love have decided to desert me when I have such weird movie cravings. K, Mom, bestie R, basically everyone just refuses to even respond when I say I want to watch Mallika Sherawat's Hissssss or Sunny Leone's Jism 2. 

I also connect emotionally to the movies I watch. Now I know that there are a lot of Karan Johar haters out there, but I love his movies. I love it so much that I cry in his movies. Actually I cry in every movie. 

Here is the list of a few movies I have cried while watching and The Sibling has video proof of my tearful moments. Just some of them, not all. If he had all, he would have published them by now and extorted money from me. 

  • Kuch Kuch Hota hai - When the whole dialogue comes, "mahurat ka samay ja raha hai dulhan ko bulayeyeeeeee". And Kajol is crying her eyes out and creepily staring away at SRK while Salman looks on like a spaz. Yes, it makes me cry. 
  • Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham - The last scene when Amitabh cries and tells SRK "why didn't you stop me from throwing you out of the house!"
  • Koi Mil gaya - When Jaadu the alien gets kidnapped. (Oh God, I am one tear machine in this one since Jaadu makes me think of Toulouse and I actually imagine my dog getting kidnapped)
  • Tere Naam - Just when you are cured of your madness, you run away from the madhouse but find out that the person you love is dead. So you go back to the madhouse. (Pretty sad man!)
  • Qayamat se Qayamat tak - "Papa kehta hai bada naam karega". (Damn, that can make anyone cry!)
  • Click - (Yes, I cry for english movies too, not just for Karan Johar) When Adam Sandler tells his son that don't cancel the honeymoon, nothing is more important than family. Damn! Too good! 


So that's all on the movie front. I recently watched Jungle Book. I loved it. But like I said, I kind off love all movies. Waiting to watch SRK's Fan on Sunday!

Peace.
PS- Doodle of the day. M  for money! We all need it and obviously can't live without it!

  2. I love movies too! And am a K Jo fan too. Except for MNIK I didn't mind any, and there are parts I love.
    About crying, er, I can't think of a movie I haven't cried in. Maybe andaaz apna apna.

    That was my comment, I think I shoudl not use reader to comment :(

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
