Based on a True Story…
Whenever I see that line written on any novel or movie it immediately gets my genuine attention. I love hearing about marvels that actually happened and it leaves me gaping ! No story left me more gaping than ‘The Ghost and The Darkness’ and that movie went one step further ahead writing
‘Based on a True Story’ – “Remember all things shown in this movie, actually happened”
I mean I don’t know about you but to me it seems unbelievably fascinating. Movies like Schindler’s List, Amu, Hotel Rwanda have always made me wonder if such things can really happen and the fact that it has actually happened always captivates me. Humans are unbelievable people, they can be kind and they can be merciless ! Sigh !
I have loved history always and loved reading about how civilizations and monarchy progressed and how different cultures interspersed with each other. Amazingly though as much as I love reading about history, I loathe old palaces and ruins, maybe its the Indian way of maintaining them poorly that puts me off.
Anyways, before I digress, you should check out the latest movie I saw Based on a True Story ! For that you must visit my FB Time line !
