“Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another’s personhood.”
Holi is color of festival in most part of India and I happened to see this movie ‘Black &
White’ a Subhash Ghai’s movie.
This time from the beginning of this movie I was telling myself this movie is like so many other movies based on terrorism, Afghan war and what not! But as the movie was progressing it took a different turn altogether.
Two things I liked about this movie- first of all the Director’s message- that there are other colors also in life besides black and white…try to see that through your own eyes.
I think a very beautiful thing is said and is something very meaningful with depth in it.
I would say watching movie will help understand this element.

So true I realized as I was writing my Hindi poetry on the occasion of Holi and I remembered how as a kid when friends used to color me with all different color and later when I used to reach home, my mom used to get mad at me and to avoid that look I used to go and take shower but the colors never used to go in one day :).
That time it didn’t made any sense but today when I think of it…I feel how those different colors in the mixed form used to stay together no matter what you try hard to wash it away but still they used to be so strong.

Second thing that I liked about the movie ‘Black & White’ is that it’s different than what one would imagine – as a typical Hindi movie :)!!!
This is like a book that you are reading and each time you get to a new chapter there is something that adds up to your knowledge. Anil Kapoor that actor as usual has shined in his matured role as a Urdu Professor who is a Hindu by religion yet changes a terrorist guy to change his mind and awaken him about the facts of the radical moments and elements that causes pain to people and its country.
