Little Manhattan

This is one of the very few movies that hit me with a surprise. In the first few minutes of the movie, I thought it’s going to be boring, with no big star cast, a story about two kids in love, etc etc., well… how does that sound interesting. However, take it from me, the movie was awesome! Love, the beauty and pain associated with it cannot be better explained.

The story is about a 10 year old boy - Gabe falling in love with an 11 year old Rosemary, in his karate class. He is in love for the first time ever in his life and does all sweet things that an average lover boy does and finally ends up with a broken heart!

The best part of this movie is the music and dialogs. Really one should listen to the dialogs as they flow to actually feel it.

A few (Actually loads) of my favs dialogs:

Gabe: Somewhere a million miles away, the girl I once loved was going down her road, and I was stuck back on mine.


Gabe: Suddenly, I knew what I had to do. Love isn't about ridiculous little words. Love is about grand gestures. Love is about airplanes pulling banners over stadiums, proposals on jumbo-trons, giant words in sky writing. Love is about going that extra mile even if it hurts, letting it all hang out there. Love is about finding courage inside of you that you didn't even know was there.


Gabe: As I held onto Rosemary Telesco for dear life, we both knew the truth. She was going off to camp and eventually, private school. We were on different roads, she and me. Two ships that passed in Sheep Meadow.


Gabe: See, this is just like I told you. Same thing I knew getting into this whole mess - love ends.


Gabe: The truth is, you come into this world alone and leave it the exact same way.


Gabe: Love is an ugly, terrible business practiced by fools. It'll trample your heart and leave you bleeding on the floor. And what does it really get you in the end? Nothing but a few incredible memories that you can't ever shake. The truth is, there's gonna be other girls out there. I mean, I hope. But I'm never gonna get another first love. That one is always gonna be her.


Old Man on the Street: I had a girlfriend once upon a time, too. She trampled my heart. Left me bleeding on the floor. Run.

Gabe: What?

Old Man on the Street: Run while you still can, brother. Take my advice. Make like the wind.


Gabe: Look at me. I can bounce back. I don't need some girl in my life for me to happy.


Gabe: There are very few things more painful than watching the woman you love grapple with another man. Actually, I take that back. There are no things more painful.


Gabe: But it wasn't that easy. I guess love never is.


Ahhh… Sweet isn’t it! Amazing that a 10 yr old boy can think so matured! Maybe it’s cos he has a hell a lot of time ahead. Maybe cos he is not a 20 ish old guy! Whatever it is…This movie is a "Must watch" for anyone who like to spend 2 hrs of their life With Gabe, Like Gabe!

Stop Dreaming?

How will I stop dreaming? I am a born dreamer!

I build reality on dreams…

Yes, dreams are improbable sometimes…

Dreams are precarious, they can shatter, they can hurt…

Yet, I am not going to stop…

I dream what I want and am not going to stop till it’s realized!

Call me a fool… I don’t care… this is what I want!

I am either fighting for it or leaving this illusionary world behind, all alone!

Identity Crisis???

To live life to the fullest may not sound difficult but the truth is… it IS difficult! Especially when you are helplessly chained to the conventional systems of the society! Well… yes, you can break the chain but the chain shatter only to hurt the ones who are real close to you! This can be avoided if only people understand! People have to understand the fact that one’s life is in their own hands… they have to take their own decisions and whatever the decision is, they have to face the consequences! Our “not so developed society” is not so “for” this concept! Thrusting your systems and concepts on your dear ones is not going to make them any better! If they fall on their own, they will rise on their own!

It is only when you fear the world threatens you! It is only when you care what the world thinks of you… you lose your identity! We are gifted with just one life, and when we live fearing how we look from our neighbor’s eye view, we lose our greatest gift – Our Identity!
