So, despite the fact that I am in fact having an extremely busy Sunday, filled with watching movies on Zee Cinema, reruns of FRIENDS and How I met your mother, eating, sleeping, surfing the net, sleeping and eating some more, I am here to write a post. Such is my sincerity.
Anyway, I already mentioned that I have been watching random movies on TV yes. So this is just one of them. Love Story 2050. Yes, I know this movie faced a lot of flak from critics and audiences alike, but when I finally watched it, or rather an hour of it, I fail to understand why it was treated in such an unfair manner. It teaches a lot of things, which cynical minds like ours fail to see, but I , have made note of. And I am determined to share this with the rest of my readers too.
You’re totally uncool if you have never shoplifted – You read? Bleh. You like poetry? Double Bleh! Dude, you’ve not lived your life yet. Oh, so what should we do to be cool, and ensure that we have lived life to the fullest. Aha! Let’s shoplift! And let’s pick this cute little pink hand puppet like thingie, with five heads, which we name Winky Dinks as soon as we step put of the shop. Wow! See, now we’re cool! Yay!
When you have love, you don’t need luck – Whenever our hero is out to embark on a challenge, be it telling the love of her life that he does in fact, love her, or when he sets out in the time machine to find her, and his supporting stars wish him ‘Best of luck’ he retorts with a very strong;
‘I don’t need luck, I have love’
I am so impressed by this line, that I am thinking of writing a Self-help book with this as the underlying theme. It will sell, I can see it, it will be a hit.
When in doubt, look at the butterfly – So many times, we reach crossroads, where we know one of the routes is right, but we are unable to decide which. The same happens here too. The love of our hero’s life leaves him, and he does not know to where. However, he does know it has to be one of 4 trains that just left the station. But how will he know which? Enter butterfly. An animated one, but still. It flies and sits on one of the names on the screen. And yes, that is where she went. Same butterfly will later ( 42 years later) fly and sit on a hoarding showing his love, when he does not know where to look for her. Yes, very dependable.
One should not want ice cream when the weather is cold, and your driver refuses to step out of the car – Er, poor girl, think of it. She is all ‘Oh I love you, I am so happy, I want ice cream right now’ and then this guy refuses to get out of the car, and she has to cross the road on foot. And she waves, and smiles, and blows him kisses from the other end, and is practically skipping and hopping across the street. When she is hit by a bus. And dies. I am totally reminded of Tamil movie scripts where they just have to kill someone somehow. Fortunately (or unfortunately) this is not the end.
The theory of rebirth – The theory of rebirth states that if you die in your sleep, or rather die a peaceful death, you will be born in a different form in the next birth, like a horse, or a donkey , or a dog or something. But if you die violently, you’ll be born looking exactly the way you look now. Your hair color may change, from black to red, but you’ll look the same. Which brings us to our next point.
You can’t change the past, but you can influence the future – So the movie is called Love story 2050. Obviously you’ve got to get the future here. But there has to be a reason right? There is, the theory of rebirth I just explained? So, basically, since Lady love has died, and the hero wants her back at all costs, he travels to the future to get her, where he is sure she is reborn and looks the same. How does he choose the year? Let me think. Oh yes, once when they were tinkering around in the Time machine , she closes her eyes and presses 2050. That’s how. Yes, yes, he finds her there, with red hair? Why he can’t go to the past, and stop her from crying for ice-cream, we don’t want to know.
Robots have emotions too – If you do end up travelling into 2050, we would have a lot of robots with feelings et al to do all our work. They will be called Cutie/Sweetie and all, plus they will name you as per the ‘section of their heart in which they store you’. So if you’re lucky, the robot will store you in Section C and call you SecC (SecC, Sexy, you get it? Huh? Huh?). Our hero is. Lucky, I mean.
Reach for the skies – This one is inevitable. The way we have jammed our roads with traffic, we really need to take over the skies. And the movie says, we’ll. Only , the skies will be as packed. Hello, we have stage shows being done in the sky, and of course, all our vehicles zoom around in the skies. Yes, so the world will start looking a little animated, but that’s ok, we’ll deal with it?
