Hey Everyone, I know everyone has jumped onto New Year with loads of excitement and fun. But I am gonna take quick 10 min to rewind and chat on my December Favorites…
There isn’t anything on beauty on fashion (sorry to disappoint you girls) but a lot of movies and shows that I binge watched throughout the month, sipping hot cuppa tea and wrapped up in my blanket. So, lets start.
THE QUEEN : A friend of mine recommended this movie to me. I adore Helen Mirren’s performances and she absolutely killed it in this one too. The struggle that Queen Elizabeth II goes through after the sudden demise of Princess Diana along with some unpredictable sequence of events that left the Queen puzzled and baffled is shown in this flick.
COLLATERAL BEAUTY : I absolutely absolutely loved the story line. Amazing power packed performance by Will Smith. I am not quite sure why the critics didn’t seem to love the story line or why the IMDB rating is still 6.5. For me the movie was no less than 8 on 10. The influence of Love, Time and Death is wonderfully showcased in the movie.
UMRAO JAAN : Don’t ask me how and when I stumbled on this movie. I thought I would just fast forward it and move onto some other YouTube video but I actually kinda liked the movie. The movie didn’t do very good at BoxOffice but was a decent enough timepass.
DANGAL : There isn’t anything that I can say about the movie which hasn’t been already said. I think it was one the best Bollywood movies this year, and the best performance by Aamir Khan. The story, the acting, the cast everything was just stupendous. If you haven’t seen it yet, do watch it for sure.
The song that has been repeatedly playing over and over on my system is The Humma Song from OK Jaanu. I am not very sure how the movie will turn out to be but the revamped track has definitely got is fare share of accolades from everyone. The music for the song is very beautifully done.
TVF Tripling(Series) : TVF has brought out some very unique and innovative series in a row that everyone is loving. After Permanent Roommates & Pitchers, Tripling was a very fresh idea of showing the road trip of three siblings. The whole journey is exciting, dramatic and emotional at points. While dealing with their own drama, everyone connects with each other in a beautiful way. Lovely story.
THE CROWN(series) : After watching The Queen, I wanted to watch something more that revolves around the same and I got to know about this series. The season shows the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II, how she raised upto her position of power and fought all the naysayers and haters along the way. How she held her own, confidently and elegantly. Its more of an inspiring and motivating series than anything else (atleast for me).
So, there it is with all the movies, the seasons and the one and only song a very different favorites list is now complete. Let me know what you have been loving to watch!!
