Your prompt for # Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “movie title.” Take the title of the last movie you watched (just the title, not the premise of the movie), and base your post on that title. Have fun!
This prompt brought home the fact that we have not seen a movie for a long time. Thinking about it, I realised my last movie was a Hindi one called ‘Barfi’ in 2012 !! The two main characters in the movie were disabled but I don’t really remember much about it.
Barfi is also a dessert. It is usually a little hard and is cut into pieces. We can make barfis with Bengal gram flour or with coconut. They can also be made with carrots and beetroots, sweet potatoes and ash gourd too. At different times I have tried out many of them. But now it has been a long time since I have made any. We get from our favourite sweet shop whenever we feel like eating. Recently we had been to Amritsar and we got a popular barfi made there called ‘patisa’. It is another version of ‘Soan Papdi’. It is made from Bengal gram flour. It was tasty.
Coming back to movies, my husband used to watch Hindi and Kannada movies frequently during his college days in the early seventies. Even now he remembers the names of the directors of those movies. Songs and dance are an integral part of our movies. Even after more than forty years he remembers the Lyric writes, the music composers and the singers. Though I do not remember such details, I do remember the songs and actors and singers. But now, we have moved away from movies. The very thought of watching movie is not welcome. I prefer reading a book 😊.
