Thankful for so much, but let’s just raise a toast to the sprinklers of hope…


Ramona and Beezus…!!!!

So, I was feeling all down and blue and I for some reason I started craving for a good movie. You know that feeling when you get a craving for a specific snack and all you want is just that snack, nothing else not even your other favorite food items but just that one thing. It was like that. 

Suddenly my mind was like ‘Little watch French Kiss or Uptown Girl’, so I’m like okie dokie. But to my horror I couldn’t find them in my collection. I was shocked, surprised and a little darker shade of the blue I was earlier. So I’m searching, and searching, when I ended up finding this very sweet movie Ramona and Beezus. 

I have already seen it a couple of times and that’s why it made me happy when I found it. And then bam, just like that I now wanted to watch it. 

Not sure if people have liked this one but it is such a sweet movie. It’s about a 9 years old super hyper active little blue eyed girl Ramona and her family; her sister Beezus, aunt Beatrice, her cat Picky Picky, her baby sister and her parents. Ramona has a big imagination, creative mind, larger than life view of tiny stuff and she likes to invent words. Like Terrifical. It’s a good word, don’t you think. 

But, unfortunately her too much energy always lands her in trouble making her an infamous troublemaker. This is a story of a 9 years old who is adored by everyone even Beezus her high school sister, who Ramona thinks of as the perfect girl. Ramona makes me want to go back to being a 9 years old and even a troublemaker, for worst she did was throw some good number of paint cans on their handsome neighbor’s car that ended up looking like an Easter Egg with four wheels.

Don’t you love movies that have power to make you cry and smile, even though you’ve watched it so many times that you can literally deliver the next dialogue before the lead character in it? 

I was happy crying and now I wonder if there was a reason I couldn’t find both French Kiss and Uptown Girl. Which I’m sure I have.

If you need something sweet innocent and stress free then my friends I recommend Ramona and Beezus. 

Goodnight world!

Here’s to fools who love and dream…May 2017 turn me into you!!!!

Last night to welcomed 2017 I watched Notting Hill, again, and this morning to make the first day of New Year special I watched La La Land, again.

How crazy is it to bump into someone not once but twice, and hate that person enough to show him a finger or shoulder butt her aside, only to fall in love so smoothly that it would feel that the only reason you had a horrible day was cause you were destined to meet? They say all you need is love but sometimes love is not enough, for those who dream.

Notting Hill and La La Land are two movies with two romantic fools, only both movies have different kinds of fools.

There are two kinds of fools, fools who love and fools who dream and often these are different kind of people; rarely them being same species. I, on the other hand, am just a fool who it seems is destined for no dream or love.

Side Note: La La Land made me miss Audrey Hepburn a little, YES! Funny Face.

I made sure I walked in 2017 with good movies. I only hope 2017 becomes a good a scene out of a good movie for me as well, a happy scene. A girl can only dream.

P.S HAPPY NEW YEAR, may 2017 does something magical for you too!!!!!!!

Oh! How I wish I was born in the Audrey Hepburn movie era…

Some days the hate in the world becomes so unbearable that you have to have something beautiful to breathe again. I have decided to catch up with Audrey Hepburn movies. 

World news has been bringing me down so I turned to Audrey Hepburn. I’ve read she never considered herself beautiful. Isn’t that strange to be so unaware of your own power? I know I’m too late to be joining her fan-wagon but boy she is such a charm. 

Irrelevant to the post, I think Ghostbusters reboot is dope…

Movies are my wonderland, the happy place… I get obsessively absorbed & imprinted onto the characters; it feels like I’m friends with the people on the screen and they know me better than those I see everyday around me.

Drop the frown dude…!!!!

Do you ever feel that the whole purpose behind existence of some things, in life, is only to make you smile and keep going…

I personally believe that this movie was made for me…

Universe’s way of saying ‘Drop the frown dude…’ 

So I cried at the end of The Danish Girl…!!!!

Today after a long time I did a movie marathon in theater. I needed it so badly. When I sit there in the dark hall looking at the huge large screen with stories and background music, I forget everything else.

Sitting alone in dark with random strangers all busy looking ahead, I fall in love with life and the fact that there is a world out there. Movies make me see the world and meet people, something I’ll never do in my reality.

Stories. I breathe on them, books or movies.

Anyhow, out of the two movies that I saw one was The Danish Girl. Eddie Redmayne was brilliant. Just brilliant, so was Alicia Vikander. At the end, at the very last scene, tears strolled down my cheeks and I thanked myself for being a solo movie-goer.

I loved the way Eddie Redmayne portrayed the struggle and pride of someone wanting to be true and honest and accepting of who they are. And I loved Alicia’s character and her unconditional support in the journey of transformation of Einar into Lily. Now I don’t know how real is this reality based story, but whatever I saw was beautifully presented and too emotional.

I don’t know much about transgender community. But I do wonder how hard it must be for them with so much of judgement. I wish world was not about guns and hatred but about accepting. But then again that’s just me. And I’m nobody. World is not made of me, which is both good and bad.

Truth is God doesn’t hate anyone no matter who you are, it’s us. God made us, everyone one of us every gender every sexuality every caste every color every religion. God made us. We are the one who decided to hate or not like each other.

Coming back to the movie, I loved The Danish Girl but it took me a lot of time to adjust to The Hateful Eight. Wasn’t my kind but was alright.

It’s Monday again, so I think I should say goodnight.  Time to turn off the lights, close my eyes and paint a world of my own.

I would like to end the day by sending huge hug in the cosmic world to someone anyone who is hurting. Because one day I would like to find a cosmic hug too.

Goodnight world!
