As I write this post, I have on my desk, a couple of pens, scattered pieces of paper, an email printout from www. Book My Show.com and I've just closed the windows of the official website of Indian Railways. Not more than 24 hours ago I sat hopelessly without any means to watch Chris Nolan's most anticipated movie of the year (The Dark Knight Rises). I had been informed that its not releasing anywhere in my state. But probably God heard my yearnings, for they were so loud, courtesy three years of waiting. If all goes well I'll travel about 450 kilometers from my hometown by train, watch the film at Inox, Elgin Road, Kolkata on the day it releases, board the return train on the same evening and reach back home the next morning.
At times I too startle myself with this fact. That I'd be travelling to Kolkata to watch Batman - Dark Knight Rises. But then I guess that's the profound liking I have come to nurture for Chris Nolan's movies. The Batman trilogy would perhaps be the most exceptional cinematic experience that I'd have for years to come. It surpasses everything else. Partly because I'm a movie buff and partly because he represents everything that I ever dreamed of.
I'm praying, that after all this, God lets me watch the film and lets me come back home safely with nothing else on my mind except a dreamy space where I marvel over the film & take bows for Nolan for days to come.
