Romance In the Air!!

Well my internet at home has gone busted.. thanks to SBC Yahoo! I have a vague doubt that it has something to do with my negligence towards my books! I am tended to believe that its a conspiracy by them to make me hit the bed with my long forgotten books! And am glad, they did so! Well I won’t really say that I did hit the books again! The devolution (which I want all my readers to believe is the opposite of evolution) doesn’t quite happen that way. Though I did happen to read a beautiful book “Love Story” by Eric Seagel. This actually prompted me to infact list a few of my favorite romantic movies! (Well, actually! Sushma made me watch a rather romantic movie “Bridges of Madison County, and that also had a role to play in this post).
  • You’ve Got Mail :- Probably the one factor that really made me love this movie was Meg Ryan! (I’d also say Tom Hanks.. but I dont’ wanna send out a wrong signal, if u know what I mean.. so let’s take this granted). The witty and taut script, beautiful picturization, and a wonderful story would make any person fall in love with this movie! And the original sound track is just too good! Some of the best numbers of the yesters were relived in this movie!
  • Sweet November :- Apart from the story, it was the expressions and the plethora of emotions that the main protagonists – Charlize Theron, and Keanu Reeves gave out, that had me rooted down till the end of this movie! “only time” – the score by Enya has ever since remained among my favorites!
  • The Bridges of Madison County :- When Sushma strongly suggested this movie, I knew I was in for a roller coaster of emotions! Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep had me spell bound with their intense talks and emotions! If one wants to realize how much love can hurt, they have to watch this movie!
  • Amelie :- I am not a big connoiseur of foreign movies to be true! But this one movie, I’d say is a must watch! The simplicity of the characters, their idiosyncracies, makes it so believeable that it grows out to be a part of us, by the time the movie ends.
  • An Affair To Remember :- One of the things about classic movies, is that they in no way can be surpassed by the remakes of the later days! This is one such movie that really impressed me for its originality and story!
  • West Side Story:- The same goes with this one too! A musical from the start to the end, this movie is memorable for lot of reasons. The songs, the dance, the picturization, the wonderful acting, .. the list goes on! If you don’t mind a musical, I surely want this to be on top of the list!
  • Notting Hill:- Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts created such a magic with this movie, that I have been made to watch this countless times by a lot of my friends (you know who) whenever we would go to rent movies. Being fair to the movie, it is very catchy and has some really good numbers! The songs are worth having in your collection!
  • Forrest Gump:- What actually qualifies a movie to be a romance for me, is kinda hard to explain. But this movie had made me think a lot about what it was to really love! The movie by itself is more of a single person’s story! What touched me and made me add to the list was the one love he treasured all his life! It was hard for me to believe and yet somehow.. somewhere.. very true!

    You have got mail,true, Meg ryan makes it lovable. Her serene smile is a delight.
    Forrest Gump, uff…classic, no second thought. Cast away is also a romantic movie and I think this can also be called as “A Single person’s story!”.
