It’s been a really long time since my last blog. A lot happened in the meantime which I might mention here on the blog one day. Hope all of you had a wonderful start. Jan is almost gone and how are you guys keeping up with your New year’s resolutions?
I have started this year full of energy and excitement, determined to enjoy each and every day. Do things which would make me happy, experiment a bit and basically not worry about what others think about me.
- If you think you are fat and unfit then lose weight, change ur diet and exercise more.
- If you are unsatisfied with your job, then go and find another job
- If you are bad in managing ur money then learn how to control ur expense
- If you want to be a model/ singer/actor then go and explore ur options
- If you love to travel then DO it.
Keep in mind that you are doing something which YOU want to do, NOT because you want to please someone else (parents, friends, children, coworkers, society …).
In my entire life I never felt this much of positive energy. I got inspired by the first movie I watched this year. Like most of us, I was also very tired on the 1st of Jan, so decided to stay home and chill.
After little bit browsing and checking FB, I ended up on an online movie portal and chose the latest Malayalam movie they uploaded. Malayalam is a language spoken in India to be precise in Kerala. Watching movies online gives me a guilty conscience, but sometimes you don’t have any other choice if you are abroad.
Yes, yes and yes … I know you are waiting to hear the name of the movie. The movie is called Rockstar. If you understand Malayalam then you have to watch it. I have never ever seen a Malayalam movie like this. The movie is about a young independent woman and a young musician. Oh well.. I know what you are thinking now and can imagine how you are rolling your eyes… A man sees a woman, they fall in love, jumping around trees in the alps, singing and dancing Benny Lava style and live happily ever after. Sorry guys, I have to disappoint you. It is a romantic story which portrays very deep and intense emotional drama. The real star of this movie is the Story itself. I loved each and every dialogue in this movie. My favorite dialogue is when Eva responds in a conversation to her mum and maid: You don’t have to get married to have children. It reminded me a conversation between my mum and me.
The script writer Rajashree Balaram beautifully captured the independent thoughts of today’s spinster professionals. The continuous fight with themselves to be independent, to be different than the older generation, the confidence to express to the world what they think and confronting the conflict between fact-based judgments and moral values.
Such a brilliant story in the hands of, one of the most renowned directors in the industry, VKP sir, it certainly created magic on the screen.
After watching this movie, I was so excited and decided to pm (private message) VKP sir, Siddarth Menon and Rajashree Balaram. The experience I made there, will be summarized in a separate blog because a lot happened there. Got catfishes, had a real small chat …
End of the day watching this movie inspired me to set goals for this year. My New Year’s resolution is very simple: enjoy the life to the fullest and not to be worried about others.
I even came up with a nice romantic story. A good friend of mine and me even thought about filming it, me in the lead role. HAHAHA…. all my friends who are reading this, is most probably ROLFing. Yeah me in a Movie ***@@@@???!!!!
On this note I wish you all a very Happy New Year.
