An open mind equals a fun experience

Running behind active toddlers in a narrow aisle inside our local desi grocers, we were all set to leave when the owner pulled out a brand new tamil DVD. You are the first to have this she beamed slicing open the shiny plastic wrap. Singam proclaimed the front cover with a rather smart Surya sporting a ridiculous moustache. Looking askance to K, we decided to rent it on a whim.

Am rather snobbish when it comes to movies and tamil ones in particular. Settling down late Saturday night after a rather busy day Amma, K and I savored the silence before the movie started. We were about a third into the movie when a high pitch wail from the girls’ room meant watching the movie in instalments.

Turning the lights off when silence reigned again, I went to bed wondering how much I enjoyed whatever little I saw of the movie. Setting aside my snobbery for a while, I enjoyed it for what it was – an action packed entertainer. Watching the rest of the movie a day later, I understood why an open mind is so important. I could pick the movie apart a hundred different ways yet I stopped. Just savoring it for what it was.

I wonder if the same lessons can be applied elsewhere. Hmmm!
