World Movies

When was the last time you laughed your hearts out? When was the last time you cried out loud? When was the last time you got inspired? When was the last time you got really excited?

A good movie makes you experience all the above and more. Some of the finest movies around the globe have the quality to move you to a great extent. Here is a list of movies that inspired me in one way or the other; some made me laugh, some made me cry so hard, some made me wonder and I have really grown to appreciate this art form called movie-making. It is indeed gifted craftsmen's work. Thanks to Goethe Zentrum and Alliance Francaise, I took the excuse of learning languages to the sheer pleasure of watching movies. 

Never miss a chance to watch one of these movies. Lie down on your couch with some friends and family, relax and give it a watch. I am sure these movies are worth it!

  1. I would add Love Story (Starring Ryan O'Neal and Ali McGraw) (Written by Eric Segal).

    I am surprised you did not find any Indian (Tamil) movies worth watching. You want to laugh your heart out? There is Kaadhalikka Neramillai. Me think.

    1. Hey SG, thanks for the comments.. o havent read/ watched love story.

      Btw, I conveniently left out Indian movies, especially Tamil movie because I have a huge list and I couldnt shortlist from them :) kaadhalika neram illa is a classic, so is thillu mullu, michael madana kamarajan.. and in Hindi we have so many too... these are so close to my heart, i couldnt choose :)

      But I will definitely include some and update the post.:) thanks a lot SG :) cheers

    2. The Gods Must Be Crazy, a 1980 South African slapstick comedy with a heart.

[Humor] - Shopping Mall crowd - Decoded

Staring shotguns - They are everywhere, one blaring stare, followed by next. Desperate uncles, jobless shoppers, housewives, nice-looking girls, security personnel, sweeping staff, staff from branded showrooms where even a housefly would hesitate to visit and not to forget the maniacs who peep into the toilets they can’t use. Did you know that the latest fad for a picnic spot for school kids is ‘visiting an overcrowded mall?

Clumsy kids - Kids running around with shopping trolleys in the madding crowd are a regular phenomenon in malls, especially when their moms are busy buying lipsticks and Kajals. Some kids do acrobatics by running in the opposite side of the travelators, which makes you want to hit the kids’ careless parents heads with a hard rock. Yes, one has to blame the grownups for such unbothered attitude. I feel bad for those parents who let go of their kids and later find them via announcements in bad English.

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.

Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…
