... let's watch 'zindagi na milegi dobara.' please, please, please," I pleaded and coaxed, and I huffed and I puffed, I whined and cajoled, and I huffed and I puffed, till he booked tickets for the 10.30 pm show last Saturday night.
The kids, well-fed by then, slept after the tomatina-festival-song and their father was nodding away in another ten minutes. But, me, I enjoyed the movie. Also, the footage criticized as tourism promos of Spain. It transported me to the possibilities of what could be.
No. Not a holiday in Spain or anywhere else for that matter. But, the possibility that you can face your fears, inhibitions, things holding you back... and, deal with it. There is this scene that touched my heart, that of Hrithik crying after his first deep sea dive, despite him not knowing how to swim.
I should have told you two paragraphs ago that this movie is about a bachelor road trip by three school buddies wherein each was forced to face and fight his fear interspersed with a lot of masala, filmy stuff that I just love about Hindi movies.
But, think about it. To be able to fight and let go of that baggage that binds us. What an enormous load off our backs! Or, let' s put it this way, when the weather's like this....
.... you just got to find your own sunshine.
Have a happy and productive week ahead :)
