“The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.”

Yesterday was an amazing day even at work and at home too ;) and today yet another beautiful day where I could meet my old friend for lunch and I realize now that we were only talking and talking no one asked about the food or anything else :D! I am glad it was a great catch up after a year!

“The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.” ~ Charles Dickens

Yesterday I saw this movie which literally stole away my breath…as the movie was proceeding and it kept the pace even at the end of the movie.

I remember buying the CD of this movie called ‘Yatra’ (meaning Journey), looking at Khayaam’s music , Lyricist like Ahmed Warsi and Naqsh Lyalpuri and the Singers such as Asha Bhosale and Talat Aziz but some how I felt its too classical and didn’t enjoy much!

“The assumption that seeing is believing makes us susceptible to visual deceptions” ~ Kathleen Hall Jamieson

But yesterday when I saw the DVD of this movie, I was more excited as the star casts are ~ Nana Patekar, Dipti Naval and Rekha, I couldn’t stop myself!!!

I don’t know where to start from as this movie had all those things that I would crave for! First of all the story is amazing and to my surprise the screenplay and dialogues are written by none other than the great poet Nida Fazli ( I love his poetry). I didn’t miss any of the dialogues of this movie …I remember almost all the dialogues I repeated to see it again and again …am crazy I know ;) !

“Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness. And they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy... or they become legend.” ~ Jim Harrison ;)

Direction by Goutam Ghose ~ I will say awesome job! You should see the direction …the thought that the director wanted to express and at time you could see his likes and dislikes as he directs the movie and also organizes the ambience and costumes too!
Actors no doubt have always been good no matter what role they have performed but I would like to mention in this movie you will see a totally different Nana Patekar!!! I was touched by his acting in this.
Rest what I can say more about this movie…the title of my post justifies as it is about life ~ the journey to a timeless destination!!!

“Journeys, like artists, are born and not made. A thousand differing circumstances contribute to them, few of them willed or determined by the will-whatever we may think.” ~ Lawrence Durrell

I saw my friend ‘Sobi’ wrote a comment in which he left me an indication as my next topic on ‘Meaning of Life’ and I would say…this movie speaks a lot about it!!!!
Anyone would enjoy this movie if they have a taste for it! Nana Patekar is an award winning writer in this movie for his book ‘Janaza’ ~ meaning funeral. The story is inspired from his real life in the movie. An awesome subject, well carved movie altogether even music I enjoyed at this time!

Life is really strange and yet beautiful I must say!!!!

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” ~ Ashley Smith

Rekha looks amazing and reminds me of her in Umrao Jaan.

Thanks for sharing

Sobi said...

" Meaning of life ? " is a very philosophical quest .......

it needs to be rephrased to " what gives meaning to life "

Different people find different meaning to life and that would be interesting to know ...

Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong...

This time of the year, I really miss India, specially Pune. Growing up in Pune as a Malayalee (Keralite) is one thing but I grew up watching...
