Movie Review: Lootera

So, to start off the New Year of 2014, we finished the movie, “Lootera”. The title means or is related to a guy who robs stuff or something like that. We started the movie last night around 10:30pm [I think] and ended at 12:15am [maybe]. None the less, it was the first thing we did in 2014…finish the movie called Lootera, starring Ranvir Singh as Varun, and Sonakshi Sinha as Panki Roy Chaudhary, and a bunch of other people I don’t know the names of. My mom was dreading the movie; she thought it was going by so slowly, dragging its way into the New Year [too many New Year puns, I know. Its annoying.]. Anyway, I liked the movie, surprisingly. I will tell you why I liked it.

What I like in movies:
-Watchable aka no-or-less-than-usual-‘chicorapun’.
-There was a story.
-Sure it was slow, but it played well with the time era.
-It kinda reminded me of me. yea, idk.
-The actors acted well.

I suggest you do not read beyond this point if you don’t wana know everything about ‘Lootera’, because its *spoilers* time [haha, why does that sound so perky in writing]. So, if you haven’t seen the movie, go watch it and come back and read this post. The movie starts out in the old times; I’m not sure if they gave the exact time era, but it has something to so with the Bengali Independence time. One of the things I hated about the movie, yea there are a lot of things I hate about every movie, was that the heroine’s [thats what the main actress is called in bollywood or lollywood, if it still exists] father gives away the whole plot of the movie by telling her this fable [remember those?…animal stories that have a moral at the end].

I have problems understanding these clues at times, especially if they aren’t in english [yes, this is a Hindi movie, if you hadn’t guessed it already]. Both the actor and actress, and side hero [Varun’s friend] did a good job in their performance. The old man was ight. Both Varun and his friend had a plan and it worked! They left the father and Panki both looking like fools the night before her engagement. Sad for her, but also for Varun since he wanted to just leave his days of robbing-all-the-wealth-he-can-get-his-hands-on-from-those-filthy-rich- hooligans families, but he couldn’t do that to his ‘chacha’, who raised him up with so much care on the wrong path. Tsk tsk. Varun and Panki also experienced these shy, slow, and old-timish romantic feelings that were hard to let go of till the end of the movie.

Anyway, I liked the movie. Its not a new movie; I think it came out in the beginning of 2013, but, watevs. Why did I decide to write a review…because I had to get my mind off of other stuff. I can’t get myself to do the dumb stuff for school and I have less than a week left. Ah. Help. Ok, hope you all liked reading this Movie review. I can do more if you want, in the future. Comment below, like, and hope you all have a great year ahead. To 2014, cheers, alcohol is bad for you.

Not just any Month.

In two days, Ramadan will start, inshaAllah (If God wills). Ramadan is a holy month that Muslims observe fast from sunrise to sunset for approximately thirty days; “Ramadhan is the (month) in which the Qur’an was sent down, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting.” Quran (2:185) . And mind you, we are not starving ourselves [if we manage our time well by reading Quran, praying, helping out others, holding our tongue back from insulting others, not getting mad or grumpy, eating before Fajar prayer aka doing Sahri, and all the other good stuff]. During this blessed month, the Satan is locked up, blessings and rewards are multiplied. Its just a great feeling. Its not all about the food [which is great every year, Thank God for that too…this however should make us also realize that we are so lucky to have what we do, some people actually die of hunger or are being killed in Syria, Palestine, and Burma as we speak!]. The month of Ramadan is supposed to make more grateful what what we have; the best thing about it is the generosity factor. It makes us more selfless and humble to the people around us. I am so glad Ramadan is finally coming and I hope I live to taste its sweetness; you never know when you are going to die. Hopefully we Muslims can make the best of this month and May Allah shower us with many blessing and His mercy. Ameen. Ya Allah, please guide us all on the right path. Ameen.

If you want to know more about Ramadan…then please Google it and check out accredited sites with references from Islamic scholars and the Quran, or you can watch YouTube videos for more info. Have a great Ramadan to all!!!

Transliteration: Allahumma innaka ‘affuwwun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘anni.

Meaning: O Allah You are The One Who pardons greatly, and loves to pardon, so pardon me.
