Hey there, I'm glad you like

Hey there,

I'm glad you like watching movies from all over the world, I'm the biggest fan of Bolly-wood movies! They are soo wonderful and the stories are interesting. Are all Indian weddings like bollywood weddings?

Welcome the World Pulse! I'm really looking forward to reading your journal posts!

Gracias muchas!

Thanks a lot, Fatima, for the really warm welcome. I do hope to add a teeny bit of value to the site and be totally enriched in return. :)

@Kizzie, :) ...yeah, Indian weddings are pretty elaborate and colourful - but the level kinda varies from state to state. Ah, Bollywood, one of our biggest exports to the world...am so glad you relish them...apart from the usual potboiler, song and dance flicks, we do have some fascinating ofbeat, middle of the road movies too that are finding their space under the sun...looking forward to continuing this thread with you....have a great day...thanks for the welcome note. Cheers!

pictures uploaded?

I love browsing people's photos, are yours uploaded anywhere? What kind of films have you watched? I love renting foreign movies too. I think I already said a welcome on the other post so just wanted to ask about the things and can't wait to read your journals.

:) hey Maria, I love seeing

:) hey Maria, I love seeing pics too...I have some on facebook and some on flickr, will share the link if you'd like to see them?

ah, movies, I can watch anything and everything except the overtly sugary drippy weepy kinds or the period dramas (Gone with the Wind, Name of the Rose and Cleopatra being the few exceptions) - I particularly love thrillers, action, horror, cult stuff, dark comedies and romantic comedies....and heavy dramas....depending on my mood, really.

I can recommend some Hindi movies that you might enjoy (you'll need subtitles to really understand them tho)...

Regarding international cinema, i love pieces by Truffaut, Wong Kar Wai, Kurosawa, Fellini and some movies I can't recollect the names or directors of...

Cheers,

Aishwarya
