Sh is watching the movie No Entry for the 5th time, I guess.
Sh has also watched Welcome, Singh is King, Jaane tu ya jane na, Kuch kuch hota hai, Kabhi khushi kabhi gham…many more movies for countless times or put it better – whenever any channel telecasts that movie.
I can join with her in the list of JWM, KKHH – absolutely wonderful to watch again and again. Crazy na ????
So, what is there in these movies, which makes us see it time after time ?
We know the dialogues….know the sequence of scenes, know the climax….in fact, Sh can recite the dialogues of many movies by heart !!! But we watch them again and again, still.
There was this Tamil film Uthama Puthiran starring MGR, Bhanumathi !!! It was a great hit and had excellent songs !!! A B & W film, which made huge collections in those days. My Dad was this crazy MGR fan and believe it or not, he has seen the movie in the theatre for 17 times. And after we got a TV at home, he has watched it again, with us.
My dad with his brother and parents used to stay in a small town, when he was young. And the houses had less rooms and more of the big courtyards. Sometimes, the men slept outside the house, in the verandah, where it was cooler. And he, very cleverly, arranged the pillows and covered it, and will snoop away to watch night shows. My patti, who used to watch for the boys through the window was always fooled that my Dad is fast asleep.
This is only one such movie. Every MGR / Shivaji Ganeshan / Gemini movie was seen at least 10 times. And he being the ever-senti-highly-emotional person, always cried for Shivaji Ganeshan movies, even after seeing it for countless times.
I think it is in the genes…but aren’t we crazy ????
So, what do you think is the reason we watch these movies again and again ????
And do you fall in this crazy category ????
