A weekend of Fidaaa

It’s big-time study mode in this part of the household nowadays. To break the monotony we opted to head out for a random movie on a Sunday noon. I just opened up Bookmyshow and saw this 1 pm show of Sai Pallavi. A dubbed Telugu film, looked like a couple of movie and off we went. The theatre was more than half empty.

The movie was all about Sai though. Her energy, effervescence and enthusiasm are so infectious all throughout as she bubbles in and out of scenes, making us laugh, admire her dancing skills, and also bring tears. Some of the most touching moments in the movie are the questioning of the patriarchal system of women having to leave their homes in marriage. Just like a mother-son relation, the sanctity of the father-daughter relation is well depicted here. Every daughter who believes their dad is their first and only hero, would love this.

It has enough family and couple moments to cherish with good music and beauty of India to go with. My wife says it’s been a while since we saw a cheesy movie, but hey, I loved going back to the cheesy old movie days!!



We all at some point of time get angry. Some of us being short tempered know exactly how much our muscles twitch when things don’t go our way or don’t happen to our liking. Being one amongst those, it was no surprise I wanted to watch Sameer’s Kali.


Though the portrayal happens to be in a movie, it doesn’t in any stretch of imagination appear too dramatic. Personally having gone through stages when I had absolutely no control over it, over the years, I have tempered it down. But that doesn’t mean it disappears; that innate nature to outlet, is immensely relaxing. Though the series of events that ensue in a fit of rage are completely beyond comprehension.


Some of our personalities are driven by that component. And erasure might make us not being us at all. So it’s a bargain, a double edged sword. It’s fun to live and to die by it.


I thoroughly enjoyed watching Sai Pallavi acting beautifully with DQ as always playing the aggressor prototype. Though I would have longed some more heart ringing tones in the movie, I didn’t leave the hall disappointed, probably because I could relate myself to it.
Movies that do not exactly portray positive things never really ever come off ‘awesome’ reviews. They are much milder and cater to a smaller audience. And I guess that’s what’s happened with this movie. But then am sure lots thronged the theatres just cause Malar was in the lead!
