Foodie and Filmy
Apan totally filmy hai ... this is not some dialogue that I am speaking...but this is the general perception about me. This is what happens when you watch just too many of films and when you watch just any film that comes your way. The love for films (Hindi films to be more specific) is something that I have inherited from my father. He used to and still watches a lot of films and we have a huge DVD/VCD collection. I also make it a point to catch a movie once a week in the theater. It has become an addiction of sorts such that I have been termed as a movie maniac. To count how many films I have watched during the entire year, I count on the list of films released during the year published in The Times of India during the Filmfare awards and trust me it is great fun to make a count of it. I strongly feel that one reason why I have watched so many films is that we never had a cable connection at our house so that I stayed away from TV but drew closer to cinema. I like all sorts of movies but parallel cinema and marathi cinema are my favourites. I firmly believe that regional cinema is rich and must be watched for the wide variety of themes that it explores. Cinema is something which is not only a means of entertainment but also a medium which contributes to your personal growth.
To food and cinema - the essence of my life - things which have made me what I am!!!
