I have always loved period movies. I recently watched Padmaavat, starring Deepika Padukone,Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, and I must say, the movie took me to a magical journey, witnessing how love can start wars. It was so Helen of Troy-ish, the face that launched a thousand ships, isn’t it? Watch the trailer here:
Some of my friends told me there was much resistance in this movie because of how it was told. The set/location is unbelievable, the costume design is beyond compare, the intricacy of every dress and jewelry.. seriously! I would’ve loved to be born in that area just for the dresses alone lol.
And to wrap it all up, the music is beautiful. It makes me sad that I can no longer add an audio playlist here, but hey, I’ve linked it to my google drive so that you all can still listen to it. Happy downloading!
I want to be the sort of scripture that
you are not afraid to call Good News.
I’d like to be the verses that
sink through your blood stream
and anchor themselves to your pulses
when you are unsure of this world.
I don’t want you to worship the
frayed binding of my spine, but
I want to be the reason you believe
in something bigger than the parables
etched in my skin like hymns.

Burrowed deep underneath
the layers of blankets,
to the right of my pillow,
your hand grasps mine.
Fingertips and palms,
yours in mine, like an almost
fading memory coming alive,
tracing and clutching,
and always entwined,
looking at each other
with stars in our eyes
and regrets in our smiles.
This is probably one of my most favorite series ever. At first I thought I might not enjoy it, it being probably teeny-bopper themed, but I was wrong. And although no matter how I prayed (lol I know) that Hannah didn’t kill herself, I understood that it was an integral part of where the story revolves in the first place.
I really wish that more teens would watch this series. It’s sensitive and very timely, in a world where fitting in gets harder everyday. It reminds me of my highschool years. I was happy, I was with good friends who were both engrossed in school, as well as friendship. We were actually doing well in school, and slaying the social scene. We were like popular nerds, if you will lol. Well, enough about me.
The music selection is as beautiful and as intuitive as the series. Listen to a few of my favorites:

I’ve always believed that when it comes to music, you don’t really need to understand the words, you just need to feel it. So yeah, I do not understand Hindi. But when I first heard Baarish, which is the first track in this playlist, it tugged at my heart strings.
Hoping I’d be able to find a copy of the movie with english subtitles. Soon!
