The only issue I have with reality is the lack of background score, the way it’s so well obvious in our Movies (ear to ear grin). Well yes!! I Love to live in a fantasy land, wherein I visualize myself as simran (ugh, not to that extent). Ok wouldn’t it be awesome if for a day our lives would have been completely filmy!! Imagine the possibilities!!
Now before I dwell more on the topic, I love movies with a little twist at the end, don’t we all?? Ok read on....
We'd grow up from in a matter of 3 minutes, with a song trailing our life, and explaining the reason for our particular behavior... i really find that captivating, seeing a person grow up...from boy to man in 3 minutes (or whatever the song's time span is). In reality 3 minutes are not even enough to tell a guy something you want to (ok that can come up in another blog ...lol).
People are reborn just to avenge their death or to reunite with their lost love (the janam janam ke saathi types)... and here i can’t even find a "normal" guy in my present "janam”.
Love in movies happens within seconds... they bump into each other and their eyes meet n kaput in love... (And I bump into weirdoes - sigh). or they move in your neighborhood and then love blossoms...(nah!! that isn’t applicable either, I have all oldies around), or they plan a trip and "coincidentally" meet, or they are childhood friends, or they meet in college, office, bus stop, railway station, airport!!!!! (Phew, frustrated...at the many options, and lack of MEN!!)
And the best thing is when you have a fight, you have a background score, and then miraculously reunite... or again "coincidentally|" meet at a book store or someplace on this damn planet!!!!
When it comes to achieving dreams, no matter what it is... to making your parents relation work by travelling back in space, to becoming a doctor without any aptitude or understanding of basic human biology, or becoming famous by letting go of your love only to meet again.. hmmmm.
The best part about movies is the action bit - I love it when the "hero" fights against not 1 not 2 but 5-6 bad guys simultaneously... phew that must be some energy drink!!...A very good friend of mine (apparently the hero in the way things turned around - long story) got beaten up by the bad guys!!... which wdnot has been the case in movies!!!
Getting wet in the rain!! ohh awesomee feel.... in movies somehow the "heroine" is always wearing a sari at that time!! hmmmphhh .. like she knows it’s going to rain!!
Not that I hate Films or anything , but I would have loved to experience similar situation at least once in my lifetime( oh I have!! - and it was just awesome)
A twist , like in most of the films: let yourself go, be crazy for a day, express you, and just do things the way you have always wanted to!! you'd love it , you would love yourself more. it’s a tried and tested formula..
