Why guys would connect to Geetha Govindam's Vijay?


Many of us love watching movies either in theatres or on television, as they are the most popular source of entertainment. They help in relieving tension and act as an instant stress buster. My husband and I used to watch most of the newly released movies on the first day itself. But after having our baby (17 months now), there is no question of going to theatres as she is super naughty and we do not want to leave her at home with someone else for the sake of a movie. But these days video on demand websites like ZEE5, Amazon Prime Video are of great help for movie lovers like us who do not have time to watch movies in theatres yet hate watching pirated movies, as these websites help us to watch recently released movies with high picture quality at very low subscription charges.

I love to watch movies of different languages and recently saw Geetha Govindam, which is a Telugu romantic comedy movie directed by Parasuram and produced by Bunny Vas. It stars Vijay Devarakonda and Rashmika Mandanna in lead roles.

But more than the movie, I would focus this article on its lead actor Vijay Devarakonda and his character in the movie due to the impact he left in the mind.
Why guys would connect to Geetha Govindam's Vijay?
Vijay Devarakonda's character Vijay Govind is characterized in such a way that it has got all the elements like innocence, traditional beliefs, respect towards women etc., that impress all sections of the audience!

The first example that comes to my mind is one of the first scenes in the film where a character played by Anu Emmanuel, offers a handshake to Vijay for wishing him ‘All the best’ but he rejects saying that it’s not a good idea to touch someone else’s wife, which shows his respect towards women in the film.



Through the film, Vijay is seen talking about his ideas about the Telugu culture and ideal qualities that a man and a woman should have. They sound good and later we come to know that his thoughts are influenced by sermons broadcast on religious TV channels. Though naive in nature, Vijay’s ideals stem from good intentions. For example, he says to his friends how he wishes to marry a girl who understands him and his family. When his friends retaliate with opposing ideas, he questions their ideas on love and understanding. This shows that Vijay can be misunderstood at times but at heart, his ideas are husband-goals.
Why guys would connect to Geetha Govindam's Vijay?


But one quality that truly stands out is how he helps others even if he is troubled. For example, there is a student who has a massive crush on Vijay and wants to date him by hook or by crook. When an act of hers spoils his image in Geetha’s mind, he first goes to the girl to make her understand about her actions as a friend. The way he explains the idea of love to her is both heart-warming and inspiring.

The points I listed above do not really fit into the macho image that actors usually have in movies. But that’s what makes Geetha Govindam’s Vijay different. He is a regular guy who has simple dreams and aspirations regarding his life and future. These dreams and aspirations are accurately depicted in the movie, in a way that guys, especially bachelors would totally connect to Vijay’s character. Not just the audience, even other film stars praised the movie for the emotional punch it packed.

So those were my thoughts on Vijay’s character in Geetha Govindam.

Have you watched Geetha Govindam or similar kind of movie in your language? If yes, please share your thoughts in the comment section!

Simple Self Care Tips For Young Mom That Actually Work

While being a new mom might be one of the best things that have ever happened to you, you definitely can’t deny that it is nowhere, we mean nowhere, close to an easy job. From making about a ten thousand sacrifices to putting your newborn baby first, always, to scheduling your entire life and your routine to rotate around your tiny tots feeding and changing diaper schedule, you moms, more like superheroes deserve a big, big medal.
Source : Google

Though you are busy juggling between your newborn baby, your husband and family, one thing you mums need to make a priority is no one but YOURSELF. After all, it’s only when you ensure you’ve taken care of yourself wholeheartedly, mentally, physically or in any other way is when you can happily look after the entire clan without feeling too stressed. Don’t you agree?

If you’ve been feeling the pressure get to you, of late, or you simply need a new routine to give yourself a reboot, here are a few self-care tips all you newbie mothers need to inculcate to achieve that zen mode even amidst all the family madness and the few months old baby drama.

Schedule First!

Just like no workout or diet begins without some much-needed plan and dedication, your life cannot hit the reset button midway without a proper schedule. Make a list, chart out your top priorities and plan your way around it.

Woman to woman tip: The Best time to sit down and plan your schedule is when you are busy breastfeeding your little one. This way there won’t be any kind of disturbance to your deep and intense thought process and you’re ensuring your baby is fed well on time, as well.

Makeover Time

By makeover, we don’t literally mean a makeover, but you can happily get one if you wish to; all we’re saying is that if you, yes you, are not going to love and take care of yourself, who is?  Book that spa appointment when daddy dearest has decided to take over and have some daddy-baby bonding time; get your nails done and get a brand new haircut to surprise and woo the hubby.

Press the recharge button on your relationship

We all know how stressful having a newborn can be for just about any relationship. To be honest, it kind of changes the whole dynamic between a couple. Without you even knowing it, your baby tends to come first over your relationship. Time to take a little breather, ask the grandparents tot take charge for a few hours and focus on your relationship. Reignite things with hubby dearest back in the bedroom by wooing him over with some sexy lingerie.

 From sultry laces to sheer baby dolls, these sexy and flirty lingeries are sure to set the tone for the night and give your relationship a new and fresh lease of life

As the relationship blooms your face will start showing the happy glow again! Thank us later!

Call Your Girls’

Don’t you miss those days where making a spontaneous plan and heading out for the weekend with your ladies was so much fun? With everyone’s busy schedules and you turning into a new mom, you may have lost touch with quite a few. Take an initiative and plan something fun. After all, what are whatsapp groups meant for?

Hit The Gym

When we say prioritize yourself first, we literally mean it. If your girls are too busy to plan an entire weekend ask them to become your new gym buddies. Motivate one another as you’ll catch in with all the gossip. The best way you can start losing all your pregnancy weight

Invest in a sturdy and colorful sports bra. The fancier the better as it’ll motivate and push towards your goal every single step of the way and get you back to your pre-pregnancy body.

Hit The Checkout Cart

While 90% of your time of late has been shopping for diapers and all other baby related stuff. It’s now time to pamper yourself and get rid of your pregnancy clothes one day at a time as you pamper yourself with new fancy clothes and a brand new innerwear collection.

Begin by investing in a good Shapewear and no sag bras. Consider them your new bff’s who are here to take care of you and your body till you whoop your tush back into shape at the gym.

Next stop, invest, yes we said invest in a good bra. It’s all about feeling good inside and out. A good well fitted bra not just ensure your breasts look rounder, firmer and make sure your boobs don’t sag but also boost your confidence.

Feeding Bra

We realize how important feeding your little one is for you. Make the most of your breastfeeding phase by getting yourself a functional feeding bra. The flap open option allows you to breastfeed your cute as a button tiny one at any give point of the day, stress free.

Maternity Nightwear

The most ideal and comfortable nightwear option for feeding. Perfect for women who have just newly delivered. If feeding bras weren’t enough, time to take the comfort quotient up a notch by getting yourself a dozen of these. The attached button plackets on the front provide easy feeding access to your baby even if that means in the middle of the night.


Put Your Mental Care On That List

We know how important mental health care is. With the stress full lives you’re busy leading getting your zen mode on can be quite an impossible task. Time to schedule an hour aside, every single day. Do it for yourself, will you ! Go bring in your yoga mats, splurge on fancy new sports bra, and of course, some super cute workout leggings and you’re good to go!

Best Dance Movies in India!!!

 Dance is a form of performance art in which the body is moved in a rhythmic manner usually in response to music and to express an idea or emotion. Dance enables us to understand ourselves better and about the world around us. In India, there are different types of dance forms that are practiced such as Hip-hop,  Zumba, Kathak, Bharatnatyam and many more.

 
source : google
When it comes to dancing in Indian movies, it is an essential creative element, along with Music, that plays an important role in the Indian film narrative! Bollywood has been using music and dance as a requisite feature to tell its stories. But, there are few movies that have made solely to celebrate the art of dance. Here, we shall be focussing on such movies in the list below:

ABCD: Any Body Can Dance (ABCD) is an Indian 3D dance film directed and choreographed by the famous choreographer Remo D'Souza. It was released in 2013 worldwide in multiple languages with a lot of positive reviews from critics and audience alike. Famous actors like Prabhu Deva, Ganesh Acharya, Kay Kay Menon are seen playing the lead roles in the movie. It’s a complete dance film in which all the dance sequences are shot and executed exceptionally well. It’s like a feast for dance lovers with never seen before dance moves and the choreography is the real hero of the movie. Such was its success that it got a sequence in 2015 titled ABCD2 which too was a blockbuster hit.
 

Lakshmi: Lakshmi is a 2018 Tamil dance film written and directed by A.L. Vijay. The movie has Prabhu Deva, Ditya Bhande, Aishwarya Rajesh in the lead roles. The story of the film revolves around a 10-year-old girl, who lives & breathes dance and has one dream - to win the national level dance competition. The film shows how this little girl struggles in achieving her goals and making her dream come true in spite of the troubles she faces throughout her journey! Lakshmi was shot extraordinarily making each and every scene a hit! The dance moves are carefully choreographed and well presented. I love this film as it’s so inspiring, and I have watched this movie on repeat.

Style: It’s a 2006 Telugu musical dance film written and directed by Raghava Lawrence with Prabhu Deva, Raghava Lawrence, Raja, Charmy Kaur, Kamalinee Mukherjee in the lead roles. This film’s storyline is quite unique, and it showcases how a cleaning boy becomes a dancing champion with his dedication, immense hard work and endless passion for dance along with the help of his dance master and friends. The story has numerous twists and turns that make it a thrilling watch.

These are just a few of my favorites, but there are several other wonderful movies in different languages with dance as the base of the plot in movies!
