Watch her graceful movements, especially her hand gestures, she paints the lyrics – with her hands Watch the way she twirls, again and again, she almost sets off a little cyclone. The bun on her head is ready to take off, or maybe, it is the bun that is keeping her pinned to the ground.
Do you remember your first crush and all the weird stuff accompanying it? Watch this video, and you will be pining to travel to that place again.
Both Ishaan Khattar and Janhvi Kapoor are natural actors. Watch when she does a “Get out!” on him, but her stare tells a different story.
One can learn a lot from this video. For example, how to hug a concrete pillar with deep affection. How to spray perfume head-to-toe. How red a “red shirt” ought to be. And other life-saving techniques.
The deft video production, uplifting music, heavenly flute, beautiful singing, and convincing acting – make for one brilliant presentation and a good workout for the heart.
I like Abhay Deol and Vijay Raaz for their effortless, natural performances. The film starts with Nirma Sahastrabuddhe (played by Mithila Palkar) having a little “car trouble.” As the movie progresses, she learns many a lesson about life, one of them being how to use chopsticks.
The movie left me with a warm glow around my heart and a smile on my face.
I almost did not watch Chopsticks because none of the media reviews had anything good to say. Maybe they had some agenda to pursue.
A lesson for me – take the critic reviews with a pinch of salt, and loads of sugar.
On a winter morning, have you seen dewdrops on a blade of grass, balanced so delicately? It is this tenderness that Jonita Gandhi brings forth while singing Piya Tose Naina Laage Re, ever so careful with each word.
The musicians – well, there are just the two of them, one strumming a guitar and other snapping his fingers. Thankfully, they don’t overwhelm Jonita’s singing.
Together, they create a very soft soundscape – shut your eyes, and you would be transported to a moonlit night.
Jonita, keep the tenderness in your singing alive.
