Hmm...Did I make a mistake by introducing best half to #slowmo !!🤔 Had no clue that he was stealthily recording me as I was immersed in watching Bahubali on TV the other day! You will see me looking at him briefly at the end of this video yet not realizing his doing! (Only tonight he showed me this video!) Some background first- I don't like to watch movies in theatres! I don't go crazy over any Indian or foreign movie releases and spend atrocious amounts towards the theatre experience! My 'movie watching in theatre' average is once in 2.5 years to be precise! That too only to please my best half or accompany a lone family member who wants to watch a movie in the theatre!
My recent movies were 'Queen' & 'A Dog's Life'. I didn't watch 'Bahubali' 1 in the theatre and was blissfully unaware of it's popularity! When part 2 released early this year best half & I decided to watch it in a theatre to see what the melee was all about! And man!!! I was so enamoured by it that the 2 months it ran in Mumbai, I went around the city to watch it! In various languages, on different screens!
The characters, interpersonal relationships among them, the portrayal, the expressions & poise of a mother who is a Queen, the bonding between the would be King & his chief confidante, the grandeur, the depiction of ancient India & her kingdoms, the beautiful culture, the spell binding visual effects, the glorious music score woven intelligently throughout the movie...For me this was stellar and emotional too! Never before has any movie touched me this deep!
Both best half & I keep listening to the Shiva Thandava Stotram magically rendered by Kailash Kher, I love the Manohari song a lot and during our monsoon trek in Uttaranchal, the charged up 'Aisa Rudra sa' was my motivation!
So yes, this Sunday I will be watching part 2 on TV with best half & in laws amusedly watching me & my animated reactions! I'm sure he will fish out the camera again but I don't care! Look how happy I am! 😃 And obviously my family finds joy in mine! Sharing little joys of life with you all 😇 #fan #hugefan #biggestfan #respect #admirer #bahubalifever #bahubalifan
