This is my seventeenth entry for Fandango’s Friday Flashback. Here’s a link to Fandango’s blog https://fivedotoh.com/2019/12/20/fandangos-friday-flashback-december-20/
I’m going to write about three different blog posts.
This was a post that I wrote on December 20th, 2013 about a couple of movies that were released on that day. I actually watched four of these movies. All of the other eight movies sounded interesting and I might check them out when I have some time off of work next week. One of these movies was a Telugu movie. I highly enjoyed watching both Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and Maidentrip. Unlike eleven weeks ago we did have Bollywood movies that were released on December 20th, 2013.
This is a post I wrote right after I saw the Telugu movie Baahubali The Beginning in the movie theater. Still speechless after watching the Telugu version of Baahubali. It was so amazing. I had a great time. Proud to be a Telugu. Finally people can see the amazing ness that is Telugu movies. There was a lot of violence but the story was unique, Epic, and the songs were amazing. Loved the part when Prabhas (Baahubali) picked up the Shiva Lingam and carried it all the way to the Ganga River. Couldn’t stop laughing when Shivudu was painting Avanthika’s hand when she was asleep by the river and then she plans her ambush only to be surprised when she couldn’t find Shivudu because he tricked her when she was up on the tree. So hilarious when Shivudu has the snake distract her so he could paint her shoulder. Loved the Shivudu and Avanthika relationship. Another funny part was when Baahubali and Bhallaladeva go to various kingdoms trying to find the spies. I loved the part when they go to that place and one of them asks for the alcohol but everytime he gets a drink he throws it away and says he needs a bigger one and then he asks for drinks for all the other guys while his brother hunts down the traitorous spy. I could tell that the director Rajamouli Garu was heavily influenced by Mahabharat for many reasons. The whole theme of good over evil, Politics or Rajneeti, a baby being floated down the river, fights over who has the right to be the next ruler of the kingdom, a prince knowing when to protect its people and when to kill enemies, the older brother being deemed unfit to rule because of infirmity and then wanting his son to be the king even though his son was against dharma, the true ruler dying early and making a regency for the kingdom until the heirs grew up, one person fighting for the kingdom even though he knows that the king is against Kshatriya dharma, one person fighting the caste system, a baby having two mothers: the mother that gave birth to him and the one who raised him, a women being chained for years, and last but not least the fact that someone wants to ruin the enemies for the attacks on the honor of a stri or woman. In the case of Mahabharat, the stri was the wife of the Pandavas Draupadi but in Baahubali she was the mother/adopted mother of Baahubali and Bhalleladeva. Hats off to the cast and crew of such an amazing movie. Jai Mahismathi!
This is my first entry for Dutch Goes the Photo Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s word happens to be Key. I hope y’all enjoy my new post. I posted three pictures of three different interpretations of key. The first picture is of my car keys. The second is a keychain that I bought when I went to Tirupathi in 2008. The last picture is of me and one of my coworkers wearing our keys on the same day that we twinned at work.
