Marina beach <3
madras, 2009. somewhere by gandhi beach.
this menu gave us a migraine. but let no one tell you that a trip to india wouldn’t be entertaining at the least.
this crappy youtube is a glimpse of the movie experience in madras. you are watching people losing their shit for a trailer of what might be the 15 trillionth tamil love story.
there will be nothing new or special about that movie except that it’s highly hotly intensely anticipated. why? because reasons.
i’m posting this as a public service announcement if you or your loved ones ever plan to go to a south indian movie theatre. it’s really closer to a pantomime with real time reactions (including dancing out of sheer fucking excitement) than it is to a regular get-your-tubs-of-popcorn-and-stare-at-the-screen experience you get anywhere else.
i also want to point out that guy who made the video here also offers some trivia about the music composer in the end (he was his senior at PSBBSSS). this will happen throughout the movie. there will be entire conversations as if nothing has changed since the lights have dimmed and a giant projection of a motion picture has commenced for them to stop discussing the price of cauliflowers or something.
i miss this. kind of.
