It's all about entertainment!

Had an awesome looong weekend! Finally, I think we are done with snow storms for this year. It was a better day today. V-day was a memorable day. My kids helped around with chores, which is a rarity. I love you kiddos. We have so many hopes and aspirations for our kids My most important wish for my kids is that, they get all the love in the world and stay happy throughout their lives. I am sure God will watch out for them.
Today's song of the day is from the movie Bazaar- seene mein jalan by Suresh Wadkar. RIP Farooq Shaikh! You will be remembered for your real life portrayal through your acting in your simplistic yet memorable movies.

4 days of holidays and you really have nothing much to do after a while. You can clean a house that is already clean, you can read for 4 to 5 hrs. straight, you can cook a delicious meal, you can play with kids, you can shop, the list is endless. They were the activities that I had already done and was bored with. I wanted to do something different. So, I spent Friday night and Saturday morning thinking about it. Yes I did. I like to spend time alone, I like watching Hindi movies. Now, how can I put these 2 together and make a fun day out of it? I browsed through the local cinema listing. To my luck, there were 2 movies playing back to back. Both of them that I hadn't watched! What a pleasant surprise! Gunday and Hasse toh Phasee. I quickly cooked a nice meal for the family and packed some fruits for myself and went to the theaters. I purchased a ticket for Gunday. I had to kill 20 more minutes before the show started. So, I treated myself to a cafĂ© mocha. Can it get better than this? Yes, it can. Now, the best part. I go inside the theater and there is pin drop silence. There is a still of some advertisement running on the screen. There was only 5 more minutes for the movie to start. There was no one else in the theater.  It was pitch dark. I thought to myself, am I in the wrong theater or is this movie so boring that nobody wants to watch it.  Fortunately, my thoughts proved to be wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed Gunday. It was like attending a movie premiere.  The movie itself was like old wine in a new bottle. Why it worked for me? It had style, confidence, attitude, dialogues, music and most of all energy!!! The boys did a great job. (the little ones too). The movie belonged to Ranvir Singh in my opinion. Came out of that movie and now I was starving. Sat down in a corner, ate my "peru" that I had thoughtfully packed. It was another experience to watch the people, rushing to their respective movies with their overflowing bag of popcorn and drinks. No home theaters can stop the cine goers from going to the theaters. The whole experience is very therapeutically entertaining. The smell of popcorn, the quiet, dark, cold theaters and the loud speakers over which you hear the husky voice of your favorite hero/heroine. Aah! it's an affair for lifetime! Ok, so now I stand in line again to buy another ticket for the next movie. This theater was half full for this show. The smell of Indian food and Indian people soon filled this hall. I was missing my previous theater already. Nevertheless, enjoyed the "desi" experience. Siddhart Malhotra is god's gift to girls. Good looking, but really needs to learn to act. Parineeti did a fabulous job. So, next time you want to do something different, try wathing back to back movies in a theater. What would I do without Bollywood? Sigh!
