I adore this movie
5 March 2008 | by anneonymousoneSee all my reviews

I don't always have much use for "cute," as it often dribbles over into "cutesy," but this movie had almost the perfect amount of cute. Siddharth won my mind and sympathy in _Rang De Basanti_, one of the best movies ever made by anyone, anywhere. Here he made me giggle and relive the giddiness of new affection.

It took me a little while to warm up to Genelia D'Souza, but her character was so flawlessly, honestly bubbly that her enthusiasm became contagious.

The movie includes a plea for honoring traditions and taking them into account while also allowing for change. It urges balance and moderation on everyone's part.

My high school students read _Romeo and Juliet_. This year, I plan to show a brief clip of _Bommarillu_ to show the widespread knowledge of those characters and to make the point that arranged marriages are neither a thing of the past nor a way for parents to punish the young adults in their lives.

I'm glad I bought this movie (an original copy---no bootlegs for me!); I will watch it frequently.
