Lights, camera, action!

My first movie in a theatre was Hum.  I was very young, I think 4 or 5 years old.  I loved everything about this movie.  Still do.  I remember wanting the Jumma Chumma outfit Kimi Katkar wears in the song (and then the Yeh Mausam Ka Jadoo Hai Mitwa frock and of course, the jacket Sanjay Dutt wears in the Khalnayak song) and sadly, never got one.

Anyway, so today, they were showing this on tv, and managed to see the scene where Tiger meets Jumma after a few years. (the entire movie is on YouTube, if anyone wants to see) and I could not help but smile and cheer during the scene.

Amitabh Bachchan was my first favourite hero.  Of course, then I saw Hum Aapke hai Koun and Salman Khan stole my heart, and he still has it. ♥

But the only constant variable in my life has been movies.  I wanted sister to marry someone who has a younger brother just like Salman Khan in Hum Aapke Hai Koun. (no, jijaji doesn't have a younger brother) and then always wanted to go to a Karan Johar inspired college. (no, my college was awful, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai never happened)  And I still want to become a spy (Hi, if you're looking for one, you know who to contact).

And I love movies so much that I don't think I will ever give up watching them, even though I know my life will never be a romantic comedy. 

So, this post is dedicated to all the hours spent watching movies.  Maybe someday, I'll write a book that gets adapted as a movie too.

Till then, I will still believe in all the love and romance these movies have taught me.
