odd jobs.. nd d days fly
A take at romance after a long time and am glad i phinally gotta watch this:
Before sunrise : My watch came a little too late but am glad i watched both this and the sequel together…which makes me compliment the makers of this flick for giving such a pure and basic treatment to the idea of romanticism… and very marginally separating it from the idea of relationships! As a lot has been written about the movie already, it would just be appropriate to highlight few portions of the movie which i personally loved.
I think the point where Jesse and Celine make phony phone calls to their respective friends was a very shrewd way of telling each other what they had meant to each other through a journey not even extending 24 hrs… the curiosity of two people who both think the other has made an infallible impact on the other has been very smartly dealt with…
On the plot front , making a romantic story work on pure conversation is not an easy job to accomplish..
I believe in romantic flicks of such flavor , the characters are not clearly designed even in the writer’s and director’s mind. What the actors bring out is what becomes of them .. right or wrong even the idea bearers would find it difficult to justify… to become the character, the life the actor gives has to go beyond instructions and the story…here both the actors do just the RIGHT job! Kudos..!!!and Before sunset is another feather which makes this one even more beautiful!
Before sunset: A very sensitive but forward approach to take a lead on the prequel… but more than extending the story , its an extremely realistic treatment to the conflict of feelings and emotions which we may or might not deny to confront everyday.
If somebody touches you truly and deeply , time and space would never change the effect that person has on you. This is more pronounced by the evidence that the external changes(the shape of your life ,your deeds and the people added/deleted ) wouldn’t deviate the line of sight somebody has for your true self!!! High five to the makers again for bringing this out so subtly!
Again , its commendable that the dialogues , making noise through the streets of Paris would so beautifully keep you digging to the screen. The curiosity element of the movie is alive all through and even after it. The freedom of imagination is an added feature which leaves it unbiased and non-judge-mental!
The prequel is good but this is more appealing as it traces a journey we all live through but mess up with due to our own contortions!
A must watch…but NOT BEFORE YOU WATCH THE SUNRISE! 🙂
the above are from my reviews at imdb
Sports .. loads lately
Played basket ball ( 5 consecutive baskets with a simultaneous conversation on the phone!) yohooo
Table Tennis … I think i was much much better 3 years back… enjoyed the refreshment but was left wondering what dah hell happened to my game..
Pool : Had a little tryst with snooker sometime back, so tried this one too… guess i need to learn it really well.. lost it with three still on board.. guess not dat bad for the maiden hit!
Cycling : A passion which made me purchase a 15 geared monster.. but its making me pump too much..
was driving in traffic yesterday when my hand on bikes made me try pressing the non-existent horn on the left hand side when a quick realisation told me i was on a bicycle and it has a GHANTI on its right hand side!! phew! planning to take it more frequently and places other than office!
The dedication is outta the window.. play it on and off at home though …. hmmm… cant write much…
Tried Khyber this week. Good food , infact awesome… but low on music .. ambience is more the family types.. serves alcohol too, dint try but lodsaa variety… will hit it one more time…
China Gate at JM is THE BEST CHINESE GETAWAY for me..If at JM , i never go without a lick at CG’s soups and starters!yummy!
Tried the new Mocha Tease launched last week at barista… nothing great , just mocha topped with whipped cream ,a little heavy , good and was filling with a veg puff (my dinner eventually!)
