This Made Me Smile!





M and I went to watch Kahaani yesterday.

Sitting beside me were this young couple. Dating, I presumed, from the nature of their conversation. Yes, I shamelessly eavesdropped, I admit. Only a little though, for the movie was too gripping to listen to everything they were saying. Two particular lines amused me to an extent that I simply had to share them here.

Scene in the movie: Vidya Balan checks into the motel/guest house for the first time. When she's alone, she bursts into tears.

Boy (in an incredulous tone): Why is she crying??
Girl (presumably rolling her eyes in the dark): Because she can't find her husband, DUH!!

**

Scene in the movie: Vidya Balan is pregnant, yet sending her husband away for a two-week assignment in a different city.

Girl (in a puppy voice): You'll also leave me like that, re?
Boy (also in puppy voice): No baby, I'll never leave you re!

**

After a while, they abandoned all pretense of watching the movie, devoting their time to declaring their affections and discussing love-hurdles. I could only pick up bits and pieces of these.

Overheard:
Boy: How can she not accept it re? I love you so much, I'll take care of you so well. I'll explain to her re, how much I love you.


Ah, the trials and tribulations of young love! On a side note, Kahaani totally kicks Don's ass.

  11. So cute you shared this :) Seriously, young love - the thrills, trials, the magic of it - even words fail to do justice to the sensation and the feelings that overcome the young hearts !

    This was really such a warm warm post. Thanks Sumitra for sharing this :)

  13. This post made me smile too. The flush of first (or youthful) love is so magical, so powerful, and so crazy. Not many things can match up to its madness.

    1. Hi, Subhorup! Welcome here. Glad the post made you smile. Yes, nothing can quite compare to the madness of young love.

  14. Whenever I hear such conversations, I inevitably think "What immaturity love brings!" - It is funny that when we are sober (Not in a mushy phase), such displays of affection always appear lame to us (Or is it just me) - if not lame, at least immature.

    And then, when we are drunk with love in those rare moments, we resort to the same and we get oblivious to the whole world and think that this relationship is so much special than the rest that ever was on this planet!

    Hah, the trivialities of life! :)

    1. Hi Sinduja! Such conversations always appear silly and lame when we aren't a part of them. But as you said, in the heat of the moment we tend to say the silliest things too! Love can certainly render us stupid!

    P.S: Why is it so difficult to post a comment on blogs from one's wordpress account? :(

  17. It is indeed fun to overhear such 'nuggets' of conversation. This is cute. It made me smile too. :)

    I hope they continue to love each other so much, that their mothers/fathers/uncles/brothers realise their true love, and get them married. :D

    Somehow I couldn't stop from bursting out with laughter at 'I will never leave you re...' I somehow imagined Rajesh Khanna saying that in typical 'Pushpaaaaaa' style. :D
