stuff to put on my list of movies to see! Have you seen Parinja? It's awesome... not your typical sing and dance but thought provoking.

I must agree Parineeta was one of my favorites this year.

I have heard of Parinja, yet to see it. But Aisha, I LIKE typical sing and dance movies :-)

Parineeta is an old Bengali drama (I think by Shorotchandra but not sure), but they have really made it into a well-made movie. Often compared to Devdas but that one really overblown. This, was good.

If you like out-of-ordinary movies, see Khamosh Pani (starring Kiron Kher). Its based in Pakistan.

I havent seen Khamosh Pani yet, but i just saw Salam Namaste. Please explain why you like a cheesy movie like that? It dragged on too much.

@onemozluv: Different tastes perhaps. I wrote here as to why I mainly liked Salaam Namaste. I was very practical and real to life. I know some Bengalis who are yet to be married but are in a similar relationship. This movie tackles the topic, remains entertaining and has great music.

its the only country in the world which took rebellion because it couldn’t speak its mother tongue and it won! and won so hard that the UN had to adopt that day as the international language day, which celebrates languages from all over the world. ”
