“Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.”

This weekend had nothing much to do besides, the trailer of ‘Bhoothnath’- Hindi movie was kind of tempting may be because of Amitabh Bacchan!

So I had a chance to watch this movie and guess what through out it kept me engaged.
Usually, Children’s movie don’t do that well in Bollywood however recently there were good ones like ‘Taare Zameen Per’ and I can say this one adds too.
But as I was watching the movie and things were heading into positive direction, I was wondering more about how this will end :D….kind of thinking ahead due to that inquisitive mind …lol

Well, I think there is another English movie and I was wondering if its heading that way but as always Indian movies have some moral lesson to give and it did …!

Kind of emotional at the end of the movie but besides that I liked Mr. Bacchan pretty cool with his acting and singing too! No wonder the songs I loved them because it was written by none other than my favorite Javed Akhtar :D

I enjoyed this movie as I see that kid inside me was thrilled to see all the magic stuff happening with the kid in the movie. We all had this fiction in mind some or the other stage where we wanted a secret friend who would be like a angel who could fulfill all our wishes comes true ;)

But in this even though angel is a friend, there are some basic ethics of life that he teaches to the kid. Over all a worth watching kids movie…!
“Movies can and do have tremendous influence in shaping young lives in the realm of entertainment towards the ideals and objectives of normal adulthood.” ~ Walt Disney
Another one I saw “Great Debaters” – Denzel Washington, its based on a true story and believe me friends….as you see this movie it literally takes you through the time when colored people were lynched and treated badly.

Some of the debates that came out were literally giving me goose bumps and it actually gives a wakening call to your inside human.

I felt sad after watching the movie not that the end was sad…as the end was awesome…! Through debates Black people were able to get their rights. They proved they are not less than any other people and they have the equal right to live in Unites States of America.

Everything achieved through peace and guess what, they were using MK Gandhi as the ideal, his tactical ways and the ‘Jallianwala Bagh Massacre' that took place in Amritsar-India in 1919. I enjoyed all those debate sessions as they used to get real intense and I loved every bit of it….as it reminded some of my school days with radical topics that used to get into people while they are on the stage :)

I sometimes feel we are so lucky to have some of the advantages which we owe to many others who didn’t even survive to taste it.

The Great Debators was amazing. It's a master piece and another feather in Denzel's hat.

It was very toughtful of the film crew to have remembered Gandhi
