Love actually

I watched Love Actually yesterday. And it was not the chick flick I thought it would be.

I loved it. Actually :)

In some ways, it was very Bollywood-ish. It made me laugh. It made me cry. Like my favourite Bollywood movies do. But most of all -- it made me believe that love actually is all around us.

To me, the most striking scene in the movie was when Mark turned up at Juliet's door to tell her that he loved her. And he did that without saying a single word. I found myself thinking about that scene long after the movie was over. I wondered how he gathered the courage to confess his feelings to his best friend's wife. And somehow, the way he expressed it, his love did not seem 'wrong'.

I guess... love is of all kinds.

This song sums it up perfectly.

Humne dekhi hai in aankhon ki mehekti khushboo...
Haath se chhooke ise rishton ka ilzaam na do...
Sirf ehsaas hai yeh, rooh se mehsoos karo...
Pyaar ko pyaar hi rehne do, koi naam na do...

It's from the movie Khamoshi (the old one, the one with Waheeda Rehman). I think the lyrics are one of the most meaningful ever!

Hehe... it sounded like a chick flick so I gave it a pass when it was in the theatres. Later, a guy friend recommended the movie to me! I realised a guy would never recommend a chick flick, so I borrowed the DVD. The movie rocks! :)

And yeah, so does home-cooked food! :P
