Am a person who does a lot of romance with time. Most perhaps into the glorious and guileless childhood…that looks like a momentary one. But there is a lot to remember and even more to talk about.I rejoice everyday having a sneak peek into past. You call it reminiscing but I call it romance with time.
What a drastic change –
Summer then 1999 🙂
Bunches of mangoes…….Houseful of relatives …….Hanging out with cousins @ temples , movies , zoo , tours , lots of nestle chocolates , lots of uncle chips, uncountable number of ice creams…. lots of care ….loads of cricket under the sun in mid afternoon………….stealing money from pop’s money purse to play bet matches….and celebrating the win by having a soft drink ( with utmost pride)……. touring own village or visiting uncles house for a week or so….and experiencing the wildest things in new places…..cursing the tuition masters who were planning to conduct classes even in holidays !!!! ….puncturing their vehicles deliberately for doing so………. playing cricket cards, wwf cards…. what not…..it was a holistic life and more importantly it was such a lovely phase of my life I would love to talk about for hours ……days…….and even longer…… I miss it very badly
Summer now 2009 😐
No more relatives visiting house as everyone is leading a busy life… and I miss everything I had then……… I am not averted to lead the life am living now ……. I can move on….but then I desperately wanted to go back into time and have a look at how life is like and live there for a while….. sticking to home for the past one year due to recession , having a tough ride…. though i am a foodie its hard to manage with the same budget and ever increasing the likeable foods….….. Now its kind of apathy feeling…. If I were to possess any supernatural powers I would go back and romance with time …. Won’t you guys??….
Seriously I didn’t have any kind of positive corner on akashamanta ever since I came to know that it was made by two raj’s – Dil Raju and Prakash Raj…… Why so ?? Only and obvious answer is I am vexed up with the kind of message oriented movies they were making monotonous movies from Bomarillu to Kotha Bangaru Lokam. Although their intention might be good to portrait the revival of relationships in this fast moving world. Too much of anything isn’t good in anyway. In earlier movies they were totally commerical unlike in Akashamanta. No hish hash in this flick….its totally upto the point. Short and sweet 🙂
Akashamanta which is a sweet tale of a father loving his daughter. Hats off to Prakash Raj acting in this movie. Right from the start of the movie where he struggles to express the joy of becoming a father to the matured father in the climax who laughs after his daughter leaves him to delhi with her husband. Its worth discussing about the performances and also the screenplay and above all the dialogues and direction. Thanks to the makers of this movie to keep it short and sweet which lasts for only two hours.
A well made flick with meticulous attention towards the emotions of a father who grows as his daughter grows too !! I bet one wouldn’t stop admiring this tale. Prakash Raj was awesome in every scene showing his reluctance towards everything his daughter asks him – from a bicycle , bike , mba admission and at last her own decision to marry a Sardarji. The beauty of the movies lies in this reluctance a father shows about his daughter. Also the music by vidyasagar was very good and the scenic locations of coimbatore were eye candy. I can’t stop telling about this one……. Go watch it you will fall in love with this one for sure. I wish Prakash Raj would grab as many awards as possible for his spell bound performance.
