Drama of Reality

Love good films


The Last Samurai ( 2003 ) is one my favorite ……

watched it many times …… as one watches it more …..

it opens with new meanings and fragrance of characters in the film …. 

films are real and unreal at the same time …..  

but it gives to some entertainment ……

to some experience …..

and to some enlightenment …….

cosmos is dream production of divine …….

and life is a film which can make us aware of our different roles and divine part …….

in film all actors act with the given identity or names but original name mostly appears

at the end of the film only …….

to know the original name during the film  yet act with a given name naturally is enlightenment ……..

love all.

अच्छी फिल्मों से प्यार है और

द लास्ट समुराई (2003) मेरे पसंदीदा में से एक है ……

इसे कई बार देखा …… जैसा कोई इसे बार बार देखता है… ..

यह नए अर्थों और फिल्म में पात्रों की खुशबू के साथ खुलता है….

फिल्में एक ही समय में वास्तविक और असत्य होती हैं… ..

लेकिन यह कुछ को मनोरंजन देता है ……
कुछ को अनुभव के लिए… ..

और कुछ को ज्ञान के लिए ……।

ब्रह्मांड परमात्मा का स्वप्न उत्पादन है ……।

और जीवन एक ऐसी फिल्म है जो हमें हमारी विभिन्न भूमिकाओं और दिव्य भाग से अवगत करा सकती है ……।

फिल्म में सभी कलाकार दी गई पहचान या नाम के साथ अभिनय करते हैं लेकिन मूल नाम ज्यादातर दिखाई देता है फिल्म के अंत में ही …….

फिल्म के दौरान मूल नाम जानने के बाद भी किसी दिए गए नाम के साथ अभिनय करना स्वाभाविक रूप से आत्मज्ञान है ……..

सभी से प्यार करो।

Love all.

Bab ‘Aziz: The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul

Bab ‘Aziz: The Prince Who Contemplated His Soul, is easily one of the most visually rich film of recent time based on Sufi theme.

The title is from the main character, Baba Aziz, a very old blind dervish who is on his way to a place unknown where a rare Sufi gathering is to take place.

Guiding him across a sea of sand is his granddaughter Ishtar, a little girl who loves her grandpa but who is afraid they might never reach their destination,

all the more as the meeting is organized only once every thirty years. But Bab’Aziz is undeterred. He knows that if he “listens to the infinite silence of the desert with his heart” he will find the place. While making their way, Bab’Aziz tells Ishtar ……

18 week 2014

But where is this gathering?

– I don’t know, my little angel.

But do the others know?

– No, they don’t know either.

How can you go to a gathering without knowing where it is ?

– It suffices to walk, just walk. 

Those who are invited will find the way.

Love is the answer

Write only what you love, and love what you write.

The key word is love.

You have to get up in the morning


write something you love,

something to live for.”

–Ray Bradbury

what is love ….. a time or timeless emotion ?

in my view love is a timeless emotion in time .

it is a eternal canvas of timeless where a short film titled “LIFE ” is projected ….

it is a natural talent of acting  …… natural talent of music ……. natural talent of writing a story …. it is an inner talent to perceive eternal beauty in nature …… and nature includes everything …… a flower to a flowing river of time where we meet humans also and when we are in love that eternal beauty appears in our work , worship and human relationships.

love is to spot that eternal beauty everywhere with a effortless effort


love is an expression without expressed

talking about canvas of eternal ……. always think about sky ….. and love the rise of Sun and many many times click this painting of time ……. a love affair of photo art  

life is , a love affair …… always and in all ways fair.

Love all.

Henry Fonda

Henry Fonda ( 1905 – 1982 ) was American stage and Film actor who appeared in more than 90 films over six decades and created quintessential American heroes known for their integrity. 

I hope you won’t be disappointed. You see I am not a very interesting person. I haven’t ever done anything except be other people.

I ain’t really Henry Fonda!

Nobody could be.

Nobody could have that much integrity.

Henry Fonda

If there is something in my eyes, a kind of honesty in the face, then I guess you could say that’s the man I’d like to be, the man I want to be.

Henry Fonda

I look like my father. To this day, when I walk past a mirror and see my reflection in it, my first impression is: That’s my father. There is a strong Fonda look.

Henry Fonda

I don’t really like myself. Never did. People mix me up with the characters I play. I’m not a great guy like Doug Roberts [in ‘Mister Roberts’]. I’d like to be but I’m not. Henry Fonda

Anthony Hopkins

Anthony Hopkins born 1937 is a Welsh actor of film, stage, and television and composer. Considered to be one of the greatest living actors .

He has been recently awarded at the Oscars 2021, making him the oldest actor in history to have received an Academy Award Oscars for the ‘Best Actor’ – The Father (2021) and earlier for the ‘Best Actor’ – The Silence of the Lambs (1992).

I couldn’t say I ever dreamt of becoming a composer, a pianist, or anything else for that matter. I have the kind of brain where nothing is set in stone.  Anthony Hopkins

Our existence is beyond our explanation, whether we believe in God or we have religion or we’re atheist. Our existence is beyond our understanding. No one has an answer. Anthony Hopkins

The art of acting is not to act. Once you show them more, what you show them, in fact is bad acting. Anthony Hopkins

Movie of the Week 23 :  Shadowlands ( 1993 )


Hopkins got the chance to play the romantic lead in Shadowlands. Hopkins stars as C.S. Lewis, famed author of the Chronicles of Narnia series, in this true story of an American fan (Debra Winger) who traveled to England to meet Lewis and the two began a loving affair.

Hopkins and Winger were both praised for their incredible performances that help make this love story all the more memorable. It is a simple yet moving portrait of two people coming together to fulfill each other’s lives.

There are several other very powerful movies but it is a masterpiece in my opinion .

Love All.

Humphrey Bogart

Humphrey Bogart ( 1899 – 1957 ) an American actor who became a preeminent motion picture “tough guy” and was a top box-office attraction during the 1940s and ’50s. 

Humphrey Bogart defined an era of cinema.

The only thing you owe the public is a good performance. Humphrey Bogart

Acting is experience with something sweet behind it. Humphrey Bogart

An actor needs something to stabilize his personality, something to nail down what he really is, not what he is currently pretending to be. Humphrey Bogart

Unless you really understand the water, and understand the reason for being on it, and understand the love of sailing and the feeling of quietness and solitude, you don’t really belong on a boat anyway. I think Hemingway said one time that the sea is the last free place on earth. Humphrey Bogart

Movie of the Week 22 :  Sabrina

Sabrina : 1954 was a successful year for Humphrey Bogart as he acted in one of the highest-rated movies of the year Sabrina alongside Audrey Hepburn.

Movie of the Week 22 :  The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre

The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre : Greed and insecurity is a driving force for humans and that was proven in the 1948 film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, starring Humphrey Bogart as Dobbs, Tim Holt as Curtin, and Walter Huston as Howard. The three men go on the adventure of a lifetime to the Sierra Madre mountains in Mexico to find gold.

Even though the three men discover treasure, they also stumble upon bandits hidden in the Mexican wilderness as well as their own greed and insecurities. The bonds of friendship are tested in this classic adventure film.

Movie of the Week 22 : Casablanca

Casablanca : One of Bogart’s most well-known films is the 1942 film Casablanca  where he starred as nightclub owner Rick Blaine. The stunning Ingrid Bergman starred as Rick’s former love , who has returned to Casablanca with her new husband Victor Laszlo, played by Paul Henreid.

Normally One movie is what is my target but all these above movies are master pieces , see them again if you have before otherwise see them on Sunday .

Edward Norton

Edward Norton,is an American actor known for his intense performances and uncompromising approach to his work.

“What has always been most interesting about acting to me personally is that it affords you the chance to shift gears, both in terms of the experiences you get to have through doing it, but also the different kinds of things you get to represent. ” Edward Norton

I never think that a film should answer questions for you. I think it should make you ask a lot of questions.

The best films of any kind, narrative or documentary, provoke questions. Edward Norton

Instead of telling the world what you’re eating for breakfast, you can use social networking to do something that’s meaningful. Edward Norton

Movie of the Week 21 :  The Illusionist

Vienna is an interesting location: the home of innovations in demagoguery, psychology and the inducement of mass hysteria. Norton plays Abramovitz, a low-born Austrian cabinet-maker’s son who as a boy discovers in himself a vocation for magic.

The Illusionist is more modest in conception, with more control and more focus; its trick ending is more guessable but more realistic and more satisfying, too. At its centre is an enigmatic showman in turn-of-the-century Vienna, played with charisma and poise by Edward Norton; the director is Neil Burger, and the result is a smart, sharp, economically achieved piece of work.

It is a good movie to watch.

Love All.
