3 Films

Three Films. Just Three Films!? Its really a tough task and for me its toughest task. I feel, everyone puts their creativity and all efforts (except some commercial films) and we need to respect everyone's efforts. Every year we make 500+ movies in India and 3000+ in the world. So selecting just three from the beginning is a tough task. I watched films from Korea, Brazil, China, Thailand, France, Italy, Iran, UK, USA, Mexico and Australia and in Indian languages Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi. Subtitles help in understanding another language films but  I guess understanding original dialogues will make films more entertaining.

1. Juno: A 2007 release Hollywood film. 19 year old Ellen Page (that time) played a 16 yeas old pregnant high-schooler Juno Macguff. The acting skills of Ellen Page make you her fan. Being Indian I felt more attracted and emotionally attached to the issue. 

2. Tare Zameen Par: Lot of people said lot of things about film. I just say, I am hosteller since the age of 10.

3. Life Is Beautiful:  (ItalianLa vita è bella) is a 1997 Italian tragicomedy comedy-drama film directed by and starring Roberto Benigni. Benigni plays Guido Orefice, a Jewish Italian book shop owner, who must employ his fertile imagination to shield his son from the horrors of internment in a Nazi concentration camp. Part of the film came from Benigni's own family history; before Roberto's birth, his father had survived three years of internment at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
The film was a critical and financial success, winning Benigni the Academy Award for Best Actor at the 71st Academy Awards as well as the Academy Award for Best Original Dramatic Score and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. (WikiPedia)

Bonus. Bangalore Days: 2014 release Malayalam movie. My recent favourite.
