248 : To Savante

I wanted to write an e-mail to him but I couldn't get his email address.

The last i posted about movies, he commented and said he watched "The Best of Exotic Marigold Hotel". Initially I thought it was porn involving a brothel, with the name having exotic hotel and all. Dirty minded me, but i got hold of the movie and watched it after a late lunch today.

It was everything I never expected a movie to have, maybe due to the chain of senseless movies i have watched over the days. This one had a really nice subtle story line, combining love, money, and life.

Based in India, its about 7 elderly folks that are staying in a run down hotel called "The Best of Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful". During their stay, they discover a new culture, the direction their life takes them, uncover lost loves and also found new ones.

Basically it is those type of movies that makes you rethink your life and what you are doing with it.. Like now I'm sitting in front of my computer everyday and I'm just wondering what am i doing with my life, wasting time away.

I won't tell much about the movie but I would seriously recommend watching it if you haven't.
And if you have watch it.. Don't scold me for being slow.. I haven't been catching up on movies since I got to Melbourne.

"It is also true that a person that risk nothing, does nothing, has nothing."

"Because as someone once said, everything would be alright in the end, and if its not alright, then trust me, its not yet the end."

Thanks Savante!


  1. Quite a slow-moving movie but I kinda liked it. Could have been a much longer movie. Wish they hadn't just ended it so suddenly and simply though.

  2. Ooo... I will check this one out.

  3. Sounds like a must watch =)

    Will check that out =D
