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.

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…

Ever Yours, Vincent.

Never in a thousand years did I think I would be obsessed with a late, delusional psycho who was also an exceptional artist and a noteworthy character with a peculiar interest for romance.
My affair started around 8 years back; a time when I had started writing and blogging for the first time. I visited this pop-up museum of contemporary art which showcased Vincent Van Gogh’s choicest documentaries. Many of his famous paintings were also on display. That was the day I fell in love, with his art, with the way he loved, with the way he expressed himself before he fell into life’s inevitable trap.
The beautiful yellowish hues that dominated his paintings, the sunflowers, the potato eaters and the starry night which comes alive in my dreams every night. Those letters he wrote his brother Theo with care, love and a pinch of attitude. That unconditional brotherly love, that aimless love he showed his friend and mentor Gauguin, that love he showed the random women he saw and painted, that lo…

Memories of...#26DaysOfSummer #A-ZChallenge

I don't know if this one counts for a poem. My rhyming sense failed miserably as emotion took over. A stinging emotion called nostalgia. A nostalgia which is synonymous to summer itself and a lot of other sweet things.

Here goes:

What is your favorite mango memory? share it with me here, won't you? :)
