The Holiday

After much delay, I finally watched ‘The Holiday‘. I watched ‘The Holiday’ that Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz took, not the Akshay Kumar one. The film talks about love. It limits itself on just finding love. If you want a bollywood style “lived happily ever after” fairy tail, look elsewhere. I saw the film being classified as a romantic comedy which I think it is not. It incites few good laughs and that’s about it. The story is about Iris and Amanda, falling out of love with Jasper and Ethan and finding Graham and Miles, across the Atlantic. The Holiday वाचन सुरू ठेवा

Espresso Love- 2

It is very funny not to know how to know the person you already love. The person as the person only, independent of family background, race, caste and religion; is a tricky thing to know, for you cannot label the person with common stereotypes. Each time the person needs an independent and unbiased discovery of it. Here it was a girl. He found himself wondering if he should keep her gender in mind or not, while studying her. In their (and in our too!) world, standards varied vastly depending upon the gender. He then thought her being woman was an undeniable truth and why would he deny anybody of their gender? And he was successful in narrowing down the question as what kind of woman (replacing person) was she? Espresso Love- 2 वाचन सुरू ठेवा

Espresso Love- 1

When he drove to his office, he had only three things in his mind. First and foremost being, patching up with his colleague girlfriend! Their love story was simple. Same team, similar interests and mutual liking from first sight. That was coupled with a few outings with drinks and dance and they ended up in her bed. There, it miraculously dawned on them that they love each other. Remaining two things were not so urgent, those things could wait. Or those had to wait rather. By now he was entangled in heavy traffic. His workplace was still 20 minutes away. He thought, his cgf (Acronym of Colleague Girlfriend, by what he fondly addressed her.) somewhere had a point. Last time they had met each other, was around a month ago. And he had after that, sought a refuge back in films he was always watching. He had after that suffered a hard time breaking out and away from that binge watching. Yesterday he resolved to meet her again. Today she agreed. He felt a tinge of happiness in his stomach. She said he watched too many movies, read too varied sort of and simply, too many books. And those things effectively took him away from his own ground realities. Espresso Love- 1 वाचन सुरू ठेवा
