    Veer-Zaara

    ★★★★

    The heartbreaking feeling of time lost; with a life, with a love. A youth lost in the throes of passion, a delirious obsession in the quest for reciprocation. The certain uncertainty of suffering that owes its existence to love.
    A self-sacrificing love so strong it transgresses into self-sabotage; a love so strong you’d spend the rest of your life reminiscing about ‘the moment of carelessness’ when the lovers merely expressed their love, an unthinking blind allegiance that knows no class,…

    “Just try to make it sound like you wrote it that way on purpose.”

    A love letter to journalists...
    I genuinely love the inside of Wes Anderson’s brain. He has a unique voice, a sly sense of humour, a delicious visual palette, and a super satisfying vocabulary that teases and rewards. Watching his films is the cinematic equivalent of reading a P.G. Wodehouse novel; quirky, refined, sometimes lewd but seldom in bad taste. 
    The kind of wry humour that has…
