It is true ain’t it? Sometimes the moment passes you by and your outlook changes. Completely. This weekend I indulged and watched two movies I had long wanted to catch despite conflicting reviews I had read. Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya and Wake Up Sid. While VTV had its flaws there were some stand out scenes for me. One line from the movie was etched in mind. Like Trisha says, the moment has passed. I could relate so much to it. Maybe it had something to do with being a woman. Being complex. Having shades of grey.
Some dreams and relationships are like that, caressing the border between must have and can’t care anymore. There are moments that represent the fork in the road and the movie reminded me of many such moments. Isn’t that what good movies do? Makes you relate it back to you and your life?
Wake up Sid on the other hand was like a breath of fresh air. I totally enjoyed the movie simply because I could relax and just enjoy the story. No reading in between lines. No trying to figure out the story behind the story. An urban love story touchingly told.
