“Dekha hai pehli baar, sajan ke aankhon main pyaar; Aab jaake aaya mere, baichen dil ko karar”

Dil bhar tujhe milne ko
Kab se tha main bekarar
Aj jaake aaya mere
Baichen dil ko karar

Ahh the good old days! The Hindi movies were actually memorable and so was the music. These days even after watching a Hindi movie, it would be a miracle if I remember the actors and the songs! I have actually re rented a movie thinking that I hadn’t seen it, and then after the first few minutes, I’m thinking to myself “Hey, I just watched this 2 weekends ago at my parents place” I can only hope that the story lines for Hindi movies start getting better. Speaking of good Hindi movies...I was very happy to see that “Water” by Deepa Mehta was nominated for the Oscars! But it was not represented as an Indian movie! Instead it is being represented as a Canadian movie. Apparently, when the movie was being filmed in an Indian village called Varansi, the locales with the support of their government started riots! People vandalized the movie set and director was sent threatening letters. Finally Deepa Mehta who lives in Canada had to close shop in India and shoot the film in parts of Canada and Sri Lanka. Due to the narrow minded thinking of the Indian population, shunning away a simple but brilliant and profound movie like Water, Mehta decided to enter it as a Canadian movie. And I am all for it! If you have not seen this movie...please make sure you do so! It’s a very heartbreaking story that tells us of how widows in India live their lives…even to this day! I really hope Ms. Mehta wins an Oscar.

PS (John Abraham looks absolutely yummy in this movie! Tee hee. Hey I can still look, cant I?)
