Never in my wild dreams did I think that I’ll be watching action movies with so much interest, as I have for romantic comedies.
Yes, its true, before my wedding, I’ve seen only one Action movie, on the insistence of my colleagues, which was Terminator 2 – The Judgement Day !!!! And, I was introduced to this series, by my friends taking turns to explain the The Terminator story to me – Remember, the Airport scene in Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na, where all the friends will tell the story to that girl – Exactly, similar to that, I caught up on the First part in just 10 minutes, before entering the theatre to watch the second part.
To tell you the truth, I just couldn’t take to some scenes – how Arnold takes out the bullets out of his body – OMG !!!! – It disturbed me a lot.
But my marriage played a major role, in influencing me to watch the action movies, too. Yes, the credit solely goes to S.
S is a great action fan – I’ve never met any men, who don’t like the dishoom dishoom movies.
And he is also the fan of the Action superstars Bruce Lee, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jackie Chan and so many of the Tamil / Hindi Action Heroes.
And slowly and steadily, I started watching Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon, Fist of Fury, Game of Death, Stallone’s Cliff Hanger, The Rambo series, Arnold’s Terminator 1 and 2, Jackie Chan’s Rush Hour 1, 2, Medallion and many more.
The most important aspect is that I’ve watched all these movies not once or twice, but certainly a dozen times. And it is certain, that I’ll be watching with S, whenever it comes on TV.
I enjoyed watching the Speed series. For some time, Keenu Reeves was my fav. Then Van Demme’s movies became a craze, later.
In Hindi, it was Akshay Kumar for me – I loved watching his Mohra, Main khiladi tu anari. Mohra got released more or less the same time, I got married. Actually, S used to hate Akshay Kumar because I liked his style so much. Even now, Akshay is the best Action / Comedy Star in Hindi movies. Of course, no need to mention about his show hosting skills – his show Khatron ke Khiladi is my favourite, once again.
I started loving the rush of adrenaline, that these action movies give me.
And I blame it entirely on the influence of my husband, S. Here’s some influence, which I liked and enjoyed and still going strong.
