dilse-chaiyyaI believe most of my readers came to know already that i’m not Indian by nationality but by heart. Yes, i am not Indian indeed and i have never been to there either yet i have a deep love for this colorful country which causes me time to time to make some plans to visit India and basing on this yet-to-be-realized idea, i always make wishlists of what i am going to do there once i reach on this dreamland…

  • On the top of my list comes visiting a Bollywood theatre and watching a SRK movie on a giantic screen for the first time. Since we don’t have any Bollyood movies released in Turkish cinema halls, i am just restricted to net or some DVDs (if i am lucky to find them on the shelves). When i just imagine SRK’s looking at the audience with his bending eye brows and bada bada tear drops, or his dancing haule haule with his mate in Saree, or  his saying KKiiiiirrrraaannnn, i feel quite impatient to make it realized 😀 (However, if not any SRK movie released at the time of my visit, i am open to any movie as long as it is Bollywood 😀 ).
  • Secondly, i would love to get on a Riksha. That might sound a bit odd, stupid or funny but seeing thousands of them in movies, i am surely in love with these tiny carriages. They are cute and warm by appearance and i am always hungry for new experiences 😀
  • Laddos…Yep…you didn’t misheard me…i want to taste those yellow round sweet food by my definition. I saw them for the first time in the movie “Water” by John Abraham and Lisa Ray and that scene with laddo affected me so much…That is the basic reason i want to eat one and the common reason is that i always hear that they are very yummyylicous, aren’t they?? 😛
  • That is a classic one done almost by each and every tourist to India…Do you have any guess? Let me give you some clues…Shah Jahan…Mumtaz Mahal….symbol of a great love saga…..yes, you are right. I would like to see Taj Mahal in real…not in 3D, 4D or 5D as i am fed up with seeing it only in movies…i want to touch its marbles and feel the great history and love lying just under…Oh! i won’t forget to be taken of a photo just in front of it as this is the most common tradition accepted by every tourist 😛

Well, that is all for today…nahi, na, no, nope…the list is not over…how can it be while i need almost a year to spend in India if i am to realize one and each item in my mind…so to be continued! 😀

P.S. VERY HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! Please accept this little gift below from my side to all Indians across the whole world 🙂

anjaamI left two extremely busy days behind struggling to catch up with the workload at office. Days were quite killing yet i am alive! 😀 On these miserable days of mine, my unique supporter was (bilkul) Shahrukh Khan 😛 I wouldn’t have been able to overcome the nights of those hectic days without his golden movies refreshing my mind taking me far away from where i am keeping every stressing thing out of my mind and surrounding my soul with sarees, bindiyas, bending eye-brows, ‘bada bada’ tear drops, romance-full dancing scenes, scenes from real India and its rural people, and lovely songs finding life in velvet voices. Ahh!! Such a long sentence for such a sharp feeling…Let me summarize…Anjaam & Karan Arjun under the scope of Shah Rukh Khan 😀

When i found these movies, i had no idea what they were about. Yet soon i discovered that Anjaam depicts SRK as a maniac whereas K&A describes him as a lover, a dedicated son and a brother. Isn’t it weird that an Indian man named SRK fits each and every role perfectly as if he is a dedicatedly maniac born lover 😛

In Anjaam, Madhuri Dixit accompanies him. She acts as the woman (Shivani) with whom SRK (Vijay) is deadly in love, which is to be turned into an obsession soon. Although Madhuri gets married and has kids and leads a happy life with her family, that does not prevent him from getting what he wants, aka Shivani. And this endless obssesion causes the death or the injury of the half of the cast!!!

The catchy thing in the movie (apart from SRK of course) is the amazing dancing skills of Madhuri!

I always love SRK when he is a romantic hero saying “Raj naam to suna hoga” or “main hoon na”; however i should confess that even the obsessiveness fits him when it is about love 😀

At the end of this high-action movie, i could not decide whether the end is happy or sad as it varies from different angles. Let me know if you watch the movie and arrive at a decision. Theek?!

Karan%20ArjunHowever, in Karan Arjun, we are again face to face with a SRK who is brave, strong, intelligent, good at fighting, good at loving, romantic with a fierce or emotional looks according to the situation. Salman Khan and Kajol share the scene with him. I guess i repeated now and then that i don’t like Salman Khan at all but after this move (seeing his face carrying a teenage innocence) my hard feelings started to melt a bit! As for Kajol, she is like a perfect match for SRK with her simplicity and purity. Here the topic line is quite random for the ones who believes in reincarnation and quite odd for the non-believers and very interesting for both sides because here we witness the re-birth of the very same persons, Karan and Arjun to take the revenge both for their restless souls and for their unfortunate mother. The movie is a really good example of family bonds, and encourages one to have strong belief in whatever they believe!

I loved the soundtrack of Karan Arjun and the dance scene where SRK and Kajol jumps and hops like little kids at a stray house. You wana see proof? See below 😀

P.S.: Curious about my rating? 4/5 for Anjaam and 5/5 for Karan Arjun, and 10/5 for SRK 😛

slumdogmillionaire_bestpicturei knewww itttttt….i knewwww itttttttttttttttt that this movie would rock the scenes and get the awards…yay!!!!

Today when i went to office my colleagues congratulated me saying that “your relatives got the award” as they consider me Indian rather than Turkish:P Now the DVD of the movie is being circulated in the whole office…Even the ones approaching hindi films with some kind of prejudice are asking from me to borrow it:D Ahhh it seems Turkish streets will be full of “Rahuls”, “Rajs”, “Simrans” or “Anjalis”  soon if i am to lend every favourite movie of mine:P

Oh by the way, i should say a few words about Rahman…well in fact what to say! What he creates is just awesome!

Apart from Slumdog Millionaire, Kate Winslet was my favourite with the movie The Reader and seems my wishes came true one by one when the topic is Oscar. I hope this “wish-realization” process can maintain its magic in other fields as well:)

And the oscar goes to ME, of course, as i was too successful at my guesses:P

P.S.: For the ones who want to read my reviews of Slumdog Millionaire and The Reader, please check here.

At lasttttt at lastttt the letter which was sent for my birthday from New Delhi has just reached me today after almost 13 days!!! I was so looking forward to it because each letter sent by my friends from India has the traces of Shah Rukh Khan in a way or another 😀

Apart from wishing me for my belated birthday and placing some hindi sentences in between the lines together with their English counterparts as in the way i find it practical (:P), the letter was talking about King Khan as i guessed it….the parts with SRK were a bit tricky though 😀

Well i take this opportunity to thank New Delhi for the kind wishes sent to me, for the long letter written without feeling any boredom and for K-k-k-i-i-i-i-r-r-a-a-n-n saga included in it:)
