BAHUBALI 2: My Conclusion

So finally caught up to the hottest trend this May: #Bahubali2 : The Conclusion
I must applaud the efforts that have gone towards the sheer magnificence of the project; the last that came distantly close would be Devdas or Jodha Akbar.
Interestingly, it had a story too. Much crisper, balanced and well shot than the Part I.

Devasena's character was a thrill to watch. And of course, Amarendra Bahubali did make me want to swoon a little. The villain, Bhallaldeva definitely made me gulp at his fine body and broad shoulders 😍
Kattappa is another pivotal character who served the kingdom throughout his life and maintained a decent sense of humour alongside!
Larger than life canvas, captivating storytelling and well directed action scenes make this movie a sure shot must watch.

Guess what, the hindi dubbing is actually a fun experience unlike the ones that Sony Max offers us!

Liked M.Kreem's music, the hindi renditions, Hindi lyrics, the situationallyrics and then lastly, the best part was the special effects used!

I Miss You, Ma

जो भी हूँ 
तेरा बच्चा हूँ माँ।
तेरा हाथ सुकून की डाली है
पतझड़ में छत
नींद वाली थपकी।
वो तेरा
गाल खींचकर प्यार जताना।

तुम नहीं हो यॅहा 
पर आदत से मजबूर हूँ?
काश तुम से लिपटकर 
तुम्हारे चले जाने पर रो पाती
थोड़ी इमोशनल हूँ ।
जो भी हूँ 
तेरा ही तो बच्चा हूँ, माँ।

Rest in Peace, Vinod Khanna!

Sometimes when a celebrity dies, you feel a certain ache in your heart caused by the void. Not just the void caused by his/her death but by the memory of watching a movie that cast this actor or the song he made his own with his charisma...

I can still picture Munnu singing "O rahi o rahi...", in a high pitch as she looked out of the window and perhaps remembered your style… the scenes of the film.. our last trip together… one of her last songs... 

I can still picture how my most favourite singer Kishore Kumar Sir would have sung it… in his style and the expressions.

Vinod Khanna was not just a Bollywood actor. He was nothing less than a Greek god. I remember growing up watching his Baba zarda and Cinthol ads… I knew I had a crush on him. 

By the time I realised what a crush is... Shahrukh Khan and Sonu Nigam entered my life. Ah, well!

It is not just about him passing away. 

It is the legacy of what you leave behind. What you continue to remind people of. That's our magic. 

I wish this magic to each one of us.

Rest in peace, Vinod Khanna.
