Me and movies....

On coming 29th, my nephew will complete 3 years and I'll complete one year since I watched a movie in a cinema hall in Delhi;{and I consider myself a movie-buff.}

After doing fair amount of thinking I conclude that I didn't watch movies which I really wanted to, coz of lack of company. Yes that’s the only reason, I myself was never too busy nor was too disorganized.
And I openly blame my only friend with whom I've been watching movies since 1990; he is lazy; disorganized and everything :-) I missed the thrill of watching works of favorite people on big screen all coz of him and his excuses.
hmmm.. but I know his all excuses were not exactly excuses, sometimes he had family commitments - work commitments.
My other friends are either in some other town or married or both; so one factor or another rules out going out with them, recently one of newly married friend asked me to watch "Vaastu-Shastra" with him as his wife doesn't like horror movies and trust me that was much below belt. And I refused in most blunt manner and rightly so :-)

Now I think I've mastered the art of suppressing my urge to go out..or to watch movies. I'm more content being at home with myself.

But still certain movies/events rekindle the passion to reach out and indulge; which I feel I must do more often.
I really wanted to watch some movies and thoroughly enjoyed their promos on different channels and waited patiently for them to release but.....
I still want to watch these in cinema hall.

  • Spiderman2 (yet to watch)
  • Lakshya (saw this once on cable but picture n audio quality was too bad)
  • Main hoon na (I know its not worth spending 3 hours but...loyality bhi koi cheez hoti hai)
  • Khakee (yet to watch the complete movie but liked watever bits n pieces I managed)
  • Jhankar beats(have seen this n of times,and can watch it another n number of times, truely dil-chahata-hai type stuff)
  • Phir Milenge (yet to watch)

And latest additions in the above mentioned list are

  • Veer Zaara (top on the list right now)
  • Mughal-e-azam.
  • Swades...

Sometimes thoughts of watching movie alone also crosses my mind but.....heart speaks louder than mind and prefer being at home.

All this is nothing but Problem Description....
and solution is........
