"All that glitters is not gold,
and all those who wander are not really lost"
Now this is one of my most favorite thoughts. Would you guess why? Because it's from the same flick which I love (the most)
So here's another part of purely Hindi movies which I have loved and adored since bachpan-dom.
IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER: (so that you can also win a radio show some day)
1. Theory : I never understood 'Maine Pyar Kiya' or " Hum Aapke Hain Kaun' , all of them were movies with just loads of songs and caps. The one movie which did make way into my puny brain was .. DDLJ ( well atleast the first half did) .
Effects on infant-ult mind : a) All women in Europe must be called Senorita.
b) Every one must buy a big bell
c) People should sing and probably dance, play footie in the rain.
d) No one should wear their shirts without half of it spilling outside.
Observation: I started writing a diary, " Today i went to school , had tiffin, studied hindi, english....."
Conclusion: " I love thy songs " :D
2. Now this one holds a special place for me and my brother.Both of us were WWF aspirants back then so.... Main Khiladi Tu Anari. We loved the dhishoom dhishoom,the songs, we loved the dance, we loved the movie.
We even tried chorusing the song :)
3. Humko Ishq Ne Maara- I'm pretty sure that none of you have heard of YRF's only television release. I don't know but I found it sweet. pertaining to the fact that was the zamana of 'Hip Hip Hurray'
4. Theory: Introduction to Friendship bands, to college, to unrequited love being fulfilled and of dances in the rain. Under this intoxicating surge many a mates set upon immediately finding theire very own rahul/anjali and some even settled for tina.
Effects on the kid-ult mind: a) " I WILL get married to my crush"
b) People knew what was friendship day and Archies opened
10 more outlets.
c) Basketball became cool. ( And my nose was smashed 15 times
Observation: Every love became college-love. Basketball became bad for health and The guy called 'Rahul' was tied 20 rakhis.
Conclusion: SRK arrived with Shahid in tow.
5. Jab We Met.
Why did I write this post? Because the next time anyone says " oohh God the same Hindi film" or " What's there in these Hindi films" I'm going to take out a morcha in front of their house and shout at them . Can any other language give you a word like 'TOTA' ? You can watch your Godfather ,Al pacino and Al Capone, run along Star Trek whatever, but apni bollywood nu insult na kariyo .
Moving on what was this Harry Potter all about?? Where was the Half Blood Prince? Great fan of the book, not the same for the movies.
Do take this as a tag "Movies which influenced me" or something of that sort. :) *Don't worry I wont kill you" :)
