Tonight as the thunder-storm rattles the windows
And the raindrops splash against the glass-windows,
I can almost hear you whispering sweet-nothings into my ear.
Tonight as the thunder-storm makes the tree leaves swish
And the raindrops descend upon the parched earth,
I can almost smell your distinct male scent.
Tonight as the rain-clouds veil the moon
And the raindrops draw a curtain around me,
I can almost taste your nicotine-burnt lips on my tongue.
Because on nights like this,
You and I come dangerously closer.
Because everything comes in pairs in the universe.
Pleasure and Pain.
Sun and Rain.
You and Me.
For without ‘You’, there won’t have been any ‘Me’.
Without you, none of my struggles would exist.
Without you, none of my depressions would exist.
‘You’ and ‘Me’ co-exist in two different worlds,
Nights like this bring you closer to me
From a world that exists beyond the curtain of rain.
And write our very own love-story.
For every love, there exists a story.
Even for the unrequited ones, too.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
