Bollywood bonanza!!

Friday...means the onset of the weekend to most, but to me it means a new movie. Since as far back as I can remember I have been in enraptured by the silver screen..more so with Bollywood. To pay tribute to this relationship, here's the list of top 10 things that keep the fire alive in my love affair with Bollywood.

10) Rebirth...the splitting head aches and the visions of a past life that are associated with them!!

9) Nagins.. specially the "icchadari" is so cool how they can transform into snakes slither into enemy territory, accomplish their tasks and then take human form again!.. So beats wolverine hollow!!

8) Judwaa behans and bhais...more importantly the ones that "bichdoed" at birth...and the resultant hurt caused to one causes pain to inevitably there is a huge hugging crying reunion..Chaalbaz is to date one of my favourite movies...

7) The kickass dialogues...kutte!!.. main tera khoon pi jaoonga!...bhagwan ke liye mujhe chod do! or even the classic Bachao!!!!! So truly articulate!

6) The big bad guy...loved those movies with the villain...Mogambo, Gabbar Singh...the way they always manage to hold the herione hostage...n how he and his million goons are no match for the hero!...too bad we stopped making these kinda movies.. :D

5) Ma! she understands u don't love the man u r marrying...the tikka applying...the tear wiping...putting u to sleep on her lap...filmi mas almost never let you down...:D

4) The dream sequences..the hero and heroine being magically transported to snowcapped mountains or lush green valleys where they declare their love, wrapped in each others arms..the chiffon sarees, the gorgeous men in suits..n how its always perfect...:)

3) Aamir Khan...its probably cos of him that I'm such a big fan of Hindi movies to begin with...from Qayamat se qayamat tak to Dil to Akele hum akele tum to Hum hain rahi pyar ke to Dil chahta hai to Rang de basanti to taare zameen par...each movie makes me love him more...

2) The fashion...from the famous Sadhana cut to the big bun Sharmila tagore had on her head, from Madhuris frilly, lacy frocks to Priyanka chopras golden swimming costume...i love how filmi fashion takes the country by storm...

1) The song and dance routines....this is my absolute fave....tu cheez badi hai mast mast...kaho na pyaar hai...bole chudiyan...dhoom girl...the way all our actors can sing perfectly on key...come up with lyrics and tunes all while magically co-ordinating their joy, love, sorrow, success and even lust, musically...makes talking look so dull...

For all this and much more..marte dam tak main bollywood se pyaar karti rahoongi ;)
