Oh how I miss these movies!
Especially ones with wicked magicians who hide their life in a parrot, caged across the seven seas! Or movies like the one above – Mayabazar – where Ghatodhgaja transforms into a girl, marries the dorky prince whom the princess doesn’t love and carries the princess off to her rightful prince (if I’m not mistaken, it was Arjuna!)
Maybe I should just go to the neighborhood movie rental place and take out all these monochrome classics and re-create the magic in the living room that I enjoyed 15 years back. The living room now is in a sad state, indeed – 85 channels on TV, not one worth watching for more than 30 seconds. Any time of any day. 10 movies in the city’s biggest multiplex, not one worth going to! And no, the popcorn doesn’t help. Neither does McDonald’s.
And oh, Youtube failed me for the first time: I was trying to catch hold of clips from the tamil movie ‘Kaadhalikka neramillai’, specifically the scene where Nagesh explains his horror movie plot to his dad, Balaiah. If anyone finds a video of that, please please drop me a line!
I leave you with another clip from ‘Mayabazar‘ – where Gatodhgaja has transformed into a girl and is about to get married. Savitri is spell-binding in her acting!
