Genre:Movies

I was tagged by both Aneesh and Zubin on this Movie tag. Now I do watch alot of movies (English, European with subs, Sinhalese, Hindi, Tamil etc) but not many get registered in my brain only cos most movies are total gunk...pure waste of time. I prefer low-budget movies with real-life stories than blockbuster hits that are formula movies *girl meets boy and falls in love, girl's parents don't like the boy, a villain tries to kill the boy, boy somehow wins, and in the end the whole family is dancing the Macarena WTF*. And then there are other movies where everyone lives in big houses, cars galore, girls look so pretty with stay-put lipstick and frozen mascara even when they are crying their lungs out or are totally drenched in the rain? What about the movies where millions of dancers suddenly come running out of nowhere when a song is up? Where do these people come from?? Then there are old Sivaji movies (2nd pic here) that my mum loves...she tells me she fell in love with Sivaji's acting skills. In my opinion, Sivaji takes about 15mins and 100 muscle movements to say just one word? But ofcourse he was a great Tamil actor in his era, no doubt :). So, most of the time I watch movies just to relax, laugh *even when it's supposed to be a serious movie*, and learn about other cultures, lifestyles, music, dance, colors, costumes and people's life experiences. And only very few movies manage to grab my attention and stay in my head and heart for a very long time...movies with substance that have a touch of reality and manage to portray human emotions and experiences in a clever and effective way. Now here goes the tag:


1. Name 5 of your all time favourite movies

Couldn't even think of 1 fav so how can I think of 5? Basically I don't have favs when it comes to movies...just good movies that made a difference in my thought process. So here I go:

1. The Pursuit Of Happyness
2. The Bridges Of Madison County
3. The English Patient
4. Forrest Gump
5. Surabhi Dena (Sinhalese)



2. Name one movie which you recommend as a "must see"

Water (Hindi). If you haven't seen this one yet, it's about an 8yr old child bride (Chuyia) turned widow who is sent away by her family to a Hindu widow ashram to spend the rest of her life there. Little Chuyia is a bundle of joy and her innocence even at the hands of cruel and meaningless tradition is an ultimate tearjerker. Actress Sarala Kariyawasam who performs Chuyia's role is a Sinhalese girl from Sri Lanka...and she had learnt Hindi just for this movie and her acting skills are just amazing! btw the cast also includes John Abraham *cough cough* and Lisa Ray. You've got to see it to know why it's such a magnificent movie.


3. The one and only one movie that you've seen the most number of times (watching on TV won't count)

I can't watch a movie again and again...how boring! Although I used to do that when I was quite young, dumb and lovelorn *eg:Titanic, Ghost*. But I have seen Water about 4 times...only cos I never get bored of watching it...it's a very real and heart-breaking story of many Indian females.


4. Which movie comes to your mind first, when you think about the funniest movie?

Too many of them that I like! Cos I love watching Comedies - it's my fav genre. All Austin Powers, Jim Carey and Ben Stiller movies *love these guys!* and the National Lampoon's Vacation Series. You've got to watch em!



5. Which movie made you really emotional?

The Beaches...too real and heart-breaking. Also, most Hindi/Tamil/Sinhalese movies are major DRAMA *rolling eyes*, and mum and I end up crying like we are in a funeral and then we both burst into laughter looking at each others' pathetic faces! 2yrs ago I was flying back to Aus from NZ, and was watching the Hindi movie Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak inflight and guess what happened...I started crying like I just got shot LOL! It was such an emotional movie and I was a big fat cry baby on air!



6. Which movie series do you think was as interesting as the first part in the series?

I don't like watching sequels all that much, cos the 2nd part always ends up being a try-hard crapster...something like a plastic-surgery version of the original one? But the sequels of Comedies such as Austin Powers, Father Of The Bride, Meet The Parents, Ace Ventura and National Lampoons are brilliant!



7. Which movie, according to you, didn't live up to your expectations, after all the hype you've heard?

Many actually. One that comes to my mind is the Hindi movie Guru. So many friends asked me to see it. And when I started watching it I got dead bored within the first 40mins or so, and I was wondering why the hell I was still watching it *I must have been in a boredom trance*.



8. Which movie, really surprised you?

13 Ghosts. WTF was that about? The ghosts looked so pathetic I had my fear of ghosts cured just by watching it! Have you ever felt sorry for a ghost? If not, watch this movie. They looked like they needed a serious mental restoration, rather be sent to a Metal factory so they can remove whatever the gunk that's on this head!


I tag anyone who wants to do this. Thanks Aneesh and Zubin, I had fun doing this tag!


Now, this song is one of my fav movie songs...it's a Hindi song from the movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (with SRK and Kajol, 2 of my fav Hindi actors). I dedicate this song to Hemz who's looking for love and is not feeling so happy at the moment...mate, Love is to be felt in your heart and no, you can't hurry or force love either. I have loved, have been heart-borken, have been told that it wouldn't work after years of dreaming, gone home in tears, watched how my solid dreams burnt away into mere debris, but all that time I had someone by my side and someone to love me...and that was myself. So Hemz, love yourself first, be your own friend and keep smiling no matter what. Cos all through life, all through temporary bonds and dreams and everything else, we only have one thing permanently with us, and that's ourselves. Life is like a movie...each of us have to play our roles somehow, and it's an individual performance. So do your best Hemz and don't let anything stop you. HUGS!

Veni said...

Hi Keshi,

Hope you remember me, finally i have some time to read some blogs.
You really reviewed lots of movie, I only get to watch movies once in a while but most of the time will just catch up if its playing in TV.

You have another blog "Between Friends" too?

Diana said...

All through life, all through temporary bonds and dreams and everything else, we only have one thing permanently with us, and that's ourselves.

This was profound Keshi!

Water is a fantastic movie. Have u seen Deppa Mehta's 1947 Earth, based on Ice-Candy Man? Its an equally moving story on people affected by India-Pakistan partition. If u get time, watch that.

Guru was a very slow movie. n ya Meet the Parents was funny in the first part, the second part was not that interesting....

Nice tag gal.

Hugs

mayz said...

wow immaculate timin to do d post keshi :)

have seen water...somehow really serious movies put me off...

Dee said...

I lurrrrve Forrest Gump.. Its one of those movies I could watch over & over & over again...

Water is a beautiful movie.. Apart from the movies you mentioned I would say Alaypayuthe (or Saathiya in Hindi) by Maniratnam was also very real.. For once, they show us that getting married and being in love was romantic but the actual marriage demands total trust, security and compromise.. Connected with this movie on so many different levels.. I told my parents about the DH around that timie and for all their worries about how we will survive an inter-religious marriage, I airily told them, we will manage.. Amma took me to this movie and I came out realizing getting married was a whole other ball game..

Nice tag girl.. HUGZ

HOBO said...

Man needs woman to complete him as a person and vice-versa and that is what we call "looking for love"

mayz said...

i meant "haven't" seen water :)

Tarun said...

I wonder why Cast Away isnt in this list.

Bollywood movie are going abd to worst.Every new movie is hit a rock botom, first there were needles in eh hay-stack and now the Hindi movies are justa kneedle-stack.

(Hindi) Movies are only made these days b'coz they are commercially viable.

Movie down south are better at least they explore the creative expert.

Jeevan said...

Is what I get from u every time is the courage to live for myself. I love movies and good ones are worth watching, but the chances are left little to get them. I know water is a good movie, but not seen so far, hope I watch it soon. some said guru is a inspiring movie, for me it seems no feel.

mayz said...

hey come tk part in my latest post

Talking To My Soul said...

you're right, kesh. life is always a solo performance.

about movies. can name a few, i guess.

watch (if you have not, i mean) Into The Wild. you will never regret watching it. it is about THE search in life. i just loved it.

for sheer passion, Revenge. Kevin Costner, Madeleine Stowe and of course, Anthony Quinn. the climax is so silent and beautiful.

for that spirit of human life, Million Dollar Baby and you named it too Forrest Gump. masterpieces.

loved Russel Crowe mouthing some great lines in Gladiator. Like this one: Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back. The Brave One featuring Jodie Foster with some heavy duty dialogues. Sample: When you love something, every time a bit of it goes, you lose a piece of yourself.

must have watched Gandhi a dozen times. Swades, at least half a dozen. and yes, Sholay always.

and, there are more then...


*smilez*

Che said...

Hmm I was surprised not to see a single world cinema movie in your list. there are so many good european movies...

vishesh said...

I should see water one of these days :)

Chakoli said...

:)))


Nevere ever seen any of the movie u mentioned Keshi :)))

Aneesh said...

WOW! thanks for doing the tag
:)
I have seen the 1st and 4th in your all time favourite.
Now, I'm going to see 2 and 3.
I got a variety of movie list from here, gotta watch those I didn't watch :)
Wow! SRK and Kajol was my favourite too :)
'N KKHT is Kajol's best that I liked, she had acted brilliantly both as an energetic,excited teenager and as a matured lady :)

Hiren said...

nice movies there Keshi :)

and that song from KKHH is really awesome ... song with deep feelings and meaning ...

mayz said...

SAURABH AGGARWAL said...

preeti said...

I ll chk out water soon. Cheers :)

Ani said...

water is really a beautiful movie..
and they faced so many problems while filming it as well..
and even the cast was changed.. oh well..

hehe i do agree on ace ventura.. hehe especially when j carrey tells everyone that the lady cop is not a lady but is a guy.. hehe

n k2h2 is just amazing.. well they are one of the best actors that bollywood has got.

¢яŷştąŁ said...

Hey Keshi!
I lourrved Water as well!!..one gem of a movie! :)

Btw,check out the sudden outburst of madness on my blog!

Prakhar said...

These days i am watching movie on recommendation....so can you recommend one movie to me(other than the one's mentioned in this tag)..I recommend AMU and In the name of Father (in case you have seen either one)

ANWESA said...

hi,keshi..nice 2 see u watch many hindi moviz..well,most of it is crap,lol.

Urv said...

Hey Keshi.. I too don't like melodrama in movies.. But you know what.. Even those kind of sing dance movies are required.. For the masses.. coz the common man goes to the movies to sing, dance, laugh, cry.. To see Shah Rukh romance pretty ladies in his arms..

Hmm.. I loved The Pursuit of Happyness.. Also Forrest Gump.. Both are great actors..

Have u seen The Shawshank Redemption ?

PS: Did ya get the tattoo?

Urv said...

And yeah I have not watched Water. Neither plan to. Cannot see John Abraham attempting to act *cough cough* :P

///2yrs ago I was flying back to Aus from NZ, and was watching the Hindi movie Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak inflight and guess what happened...I started crying like I just got shot LOL!///

this one really had me in splits :D

nice list of movies dear :)
ive watched almost all of them...
btw the name of that 5 yr old widow in water is 'chuhiya' which means 'mouse' (female mouse) in hindi :D
just thought u would like to know....

and u know what, was reading the entire post as a fun read...but the last part suddenly hit me and right in the face...
spot on girl! i totally agree with u :)
and thats the best and strongest thing ive heard from someone in ages....
ive heard it many times before but i dunno why the way u put it had such a powerful impact...probably its because uve gone through it urself....the lessons are best given by the ones who live them...

luv u girl
u rock!!:)

♪♪HARINI♪♪ said...

firstly,i love the song!!! like totally totally..soo love it :D

and well ive watched so many hindi movies but havent cried even once!!! i get really emotional but cant cry :P

Miserable about ppl a person lost in life is Love...

Ria said...

Nice choice babes! I m glad u took up this tag. Qayamat se Qayamat Tak is one of the best movies full of innocence and love. I had cried while seeing it too! So u r not alone. I really wanna see Water sometime soon. Btw u dint like Guru mebbe coz it was a sort of Biographical movie of Late Dhirubhai Ambani who was the head of one of the largest companies of India, Reliance. So thats y i suppose u cdnt correlate the two. I love most of the Jim Carrey movies coz he's jus so funny! :P Be it Ace Ventura or be it Bruce Almighty. :) I used to be a fan of this song from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai when i was going thru heart break. I must hav cried tonnes of times while listening to this song.

Sweetstickychewy said...

Hmmm..Water seems like a good one to catch.:)

***13 Ghosts. WTF was that about? The ghosts looked so pathetic I had my fear of ghosts cured just by watching it!

LOL I totally agree with ya on that!:D watched it.. Lame seriously!

***Love is to be felt in your heart and no, you can't hurry or force love either. I have loved, have been heart-borken, have been told that it wouldn't work after years of dreaming, gone home in tears, watched how my solid dreams burnt away into mere debris, but all that time I had someone by my side and someone to love me...and that was myself

thats awesome sharing gurl!:D

Cheerios!
