movie nostalgia* 

Last week has been a good week for movies for me. I watched 3 movies from the 7th French Movie Festival hosted by GSC. They were 'Priceless', 'You Are So Handsome' and 'By The Pricking Of My Thumbs'. As said by CupcakeQueen, French movies are quirkily funny and highly entertaining, especially their romantic comedies.

Then this morning I chatted with Apoo. After what seemed like endless torturous hours of yawning details of his dinner, pani puri and thereafter, about his non-existent sex life, we came to the topic of Bollywood movies. I mean when you chat with an Indian man, one who is homesick, the topic of Bollywood is bound to crop up. Most often, from experience, this will happen sooner rather than later. Ha.

So I asked him about the title of this movie which I used to love (and still do) when I was still angelic in looks, thinking and what comes out from my mouth.

Name of movie: Yaadon Ki Baarat
Synopsis: Read here. The plot was really classic la - siblings separated by fate, then one grew to be a gangster, one a rich man's son and one a singer. I love the actor Dharmendra, such a hot rod stuff even for a non-pubescent girl like me back in the 70s. Aiyoyo kaade vaa leh. You should see him in Sholay, where he stars with Amitabh Bachchan, how to concentrate on movie plot when you donno where and how to concentrate. Bwahaha.
2 main songs: Yaadon Ki Baarat & Chura Li Hai.

After the excitement of the topic, I decided to find the clips of the songs in YouTube. So here they are, hope you enjoy them and maybe they bring back the same good memories to you as they did me. If this is the first time you've heard of the movie and the songs, I am sure they will stay in your head for years to come. Enjoy!

[This is the part where Dharmendra realised that the singer
and the rich man are the brothers he had lost years ago]

[It's funny how I just realised that the Zeenat Aman and the guy
just held and posed with the guitar and did not actually play it. Heh.]

P/S If anyone knows how I can get hold of this Yaadon DVD, please let me know. Another movie clip which I found was also Haati Mere Saathi. Oooh nice. And Apoo, the one with the roller skating ring is "Hee Aze Lak Jah", but I can't find it on YouTube. Maybe I got the spellings wrong. Please help check with your mum for me. We will negotiate rewards later, ok? Wink.

Update 4 June 2007: Here is the clip of the song which I really, really loved from 'Aa Gale Lag Jaa' called 'Tera Muj Se Hai Natha Koi' though i prefered the one with the small boy in crutches singing it...Doesn't matter, this is great too. Enjoy!

malaysia travel guide* 

Honestly, if there is one website that is doing its darn best to provide proper unbiased detailed guide to Malaysia in line with VMY2007, it has to be Malaysia Travel Guide which is created by PK Tan. I have read through some of the pages in the past month, and I really think he is doing an awesome job with the interesting details, good writing and nice pixs too.

So do help out and spread the word about Malaysia Travel Guide and make it a success it so deserved. Kudos and good luck, PK!
