A must watch

I am so happy to share that I have seen a movie from my heart after a long time. Though it is slightly clichéd and pretty predictable towards the end but it is really a sweet movie which shows the power of faith and surrender.

If you haven’t seen it already, please do.

I have been a Aamir fan since QSQT but I have started liking Salman’s Films since Jai Ho. I don’t know how he is as a person really and how true the cases are, his recent movies are worth watching and inspirational.

I finally understand!

I was thinking of the film “Don” “Gunday” “Ek Villian” “Godfather” “Maleficent” or for that matter “Once upon a time in Mumbai” and the other films which tell us about the other side. The side of the gangsters and how they got into it the business. It is always a sad story or a story that somehow and in some way makes you accept them.

Not just that, we actually sympathized for them when they lost their loved one or when they were being chased by the police or when they themselves died. What does this tell you? I realised that the minute you know someone’s story from their side, you do understand them, their reasoning and feel sympathy for them.The proverbial walking in their shoes surely works.

This helps me understand 2 things.

  1. Accept everyone for everything. Have trust, they truly must have a reason. (I personally need to work on this a lot. 😦 but now I understand and keep me in your prayers and I think I will.)
  2. and if there is communication amongst people, then probably relations would be better. More than that, if there is love, I guess everything is solved if there is love but Communication is what I think could help in understanding the other person.

I know a close someone is feeling hatred and a lot of negativity for the other family members. I feel sad. I feel worried. Sometimes I think that we really live in the best of times but when I think too deeply, I really feel scared for my future and of my coming generations.

Anyway, something to think over the weekend. I hope this helps you understand a little better.

PS- I am sure there are many books and films that must have the bad guy as the central character, these are the latest that came to my mind. 🙂 Have a lovely weekend and keep smiling 😀

I am worried about myself :(

Some of you might know that I am a movie buff and I watch almost every movie that is made in Hollywood and Bollywood. Recently there is a lot of focus on Piku and Tanu weds Manu returns.

I somehow didn’t like both of them at all. I laughed a lot watching the trailer of piku but the movie was just loud and I didn’t find it funny. I didn’t find it humorous to laugh at someone old like that. Maybe I have lost my sense of humour.

Don’t even get me started on tanu. She got her hubby admitted in the mental hospital. Who does that? I found the movie far far away from reality and …. well, I don’t know what is wrong with me. I am not enjoying movies as I used to.

As a matter of fact, I recently saw The wedding planner. It was a movie I had once enjoyed and liked when I was in college but when I  saw it recently, I found it so weird. The movie felt so convenient and unreal. Maybe I have grown up and matured but I hardly think I have. What is wrong with me 😦

 

 

The best depiction of life so far.

I recently got to see this lovely movie “Little Buddha.” There I learnt about Mandala which  is a Tibetan Buddhist tradition involving the creation and destruction of mandalas made from colored sand. A sand mandala is ritualistically dismantled once it has been completed and its accompanying ceremonies and viewing are finished to symbolize the Buddhist doctrinal belief in the transitory nature of material life.

The sand is collected in a jar which is then wrapped in silk and transported to a river (or any place with moving water), where it is released back into nature. This symbolizes the ephemerality of life and the world.

Isn’t it the best way to depict human life? When I was watching the movie and the monk told the hero about it, In my mind, I thought about the waste of it all and how every culture has some way of doing it. I also thought about the back breaking work (pun intended) that the monks had to go through to make it. And, it seems that the minute it is done making, they start .. unmaking it or …. I am sorry I don’t know what happens properly. The movie said that they just brush it off in one stroke, just like that but when I read online, it said that they had a order of removing … an order to remove the deities and …

So, coming to the point, I realized that we too break our backs in making our life and learning and doing things for which we have chosen this place. The minute it is done, We are called back and just like that, we are gone. So, Such a beautiful way to learn detachment.
