Very seldom it happens that you watch a movie and its impact lasts for years. Very few characters, in movies or in novels, exist with whom you relate yourself in some way or the other. Wake up Sid. A movie very close to my heart. Every time I see that movie, I feel into it, completely. The protagonist..Aisha, her aspirations, her dreams, her love for writing..to be independent…to live by herself…to cook her own food, to have her own little home, her love for old hindi music..just everything. Somewhere deep inside my heart…I too want a life like this. Simple . I don’t want salary of five figures, huge bungalow, posh colonies to live in…..just a simple life where I can just be myself. A small two room flat, lot of books, music, my work and me.
There is one more similarity…her friend..Sidharth. We share the same age difference, the maturity level, likes and dislikes…though his passion is music and not photography. A mere mention of this movie brings a smile on our face.
And undoubtedly, ‘iktara’ is one of our favorite track.
