A movie about Dhoni, starring Sushant Singh Rajput! How could I not watch it?

Excitement and expectations running through every vein in our bodies I and husband walked in to the movie theater on Sunday night. We wanted to get to know the man who was instrumental in India winning the World Cup after 28 long years and also learn how a small town boy Mahi became DHONI. Did we get to know the man behind the scenes? Yes… in a way. Did we walk out with new found love and respect for Dhoni… no not really.

Being a Jurassic Park fan girl, ‘Jurassic World’ was one of my most anticipated movie of this year. I went to watch the movie the same weekend it released and have been basking in its awesomeness ever since.

My most awaited movie of the year, Avengers: Age of Ultron, finally released over this weekend. Did I love the movie? Yes, I did. Did I think the movie was better than the first one? Absolutely not.

Things I liked –

Ultron: If I am being honest here, before going to the movie, I thought that its villain will …

I had no intention of watching Social Network because somehow I was quite sure that this movie wouldn’t work… at least not for me. When the reviews came out I was stupefied. But it was after S insisted that I decided to watch this movie and Boy Am I glad to have seen it! I would have missed one of the best movies this year just because of my prejudice.

As you know the movie is based on the book ‘The Accidental Billionaires’ by Ben Mezrich (I haven’t read the book but want to) which is in turn based on …

When we dream, we feel safe. Our dreams are our own and there is no way that anyone would be able to know them. You can dream of things that you would never want anyone to know and yet feel that the secret is safe within you… right? Wrong, if you living in the world of Christopher Nolan not even your dreams are safe. Your dreams, deepest buried secrets and thoughts are pretty much out there to be stolen.
