I was thrilled to receive this email: “Get ready to be transported to the ‘Golden Era’ of Hindi Cinema! Zee Classic’s ‘The Classic Cut’ Film Festival brings to you 4 evergreen films of Indian Cinema – SHOLAY, DEEWAR, KARZ & SEETA AUR GEETA at PVR theatres in Juhu from 20th to 24th April at 9PM. You are cordially invited to relive the magic of these cult movies on the big screen with friends and family.”
‘The Classic Cut’ Film Festival
For a student of cinema or a cinephile, these films would definitely top the ‘wish-to-watch-on-the-big-screen’ list. And because you all love the movies as much as I do, you get to accompany me to the screenings with a +1. All you have to do is share your favourite dialogue from the movie you wish to watch in the comments section below, on my Facebook page or at my Twitter. And I’ll get back to you with the deets.
See you at the movies!
10 movies release this Friday and not one excites me. 8 odd released last Friday and some were really bad. Despite that, I had a good run at the movies one week, watching one every day. Yes, folks, that’s me.
I Love Movies
It started innocently. I had missed a screening of Hugo thanks to a clash with Fatso and Jannat 2 (that I had to review). After all the lovely things people had to say about Hugo, not only was I determined to watch but also show it to my sister. So after a review of The Little Door, we landed at the PVR Cinemas’ box office to watch Hugo. To the disappointment of 7 of us, every theatre across the city was running only one show and this particular one was sold out! Not wanting to watch an 11:15 pm show at Malad (of all places) where I was bound to fall asleep, we promptly booked tickets for the next day.
The Avengers (3D)
Just when one of my accompanying friends asked if I’d watch The Avengers with him, again. I really loved The Avengers even though I had originally watched it in 2D. When folks were raving about it in 3D, I didn’t realize they meant the IMAX 3D. In any case, I went ahead with it and thus, started my week at the movies (literally).
