A song from the Movie “Love story”

Even after  45 years “Love Story ” is one of the movie stays in the mind. It is a sad romantic movie  produced in 1970 but it is etched  as an evergreen film in many minds. what an irony!!

The original  “Love story”  was a novel  written by Erich Segal and then made to a successful motion picture. I have enjoyed reading  novel many years ago.

The  love story movie also reminds me the Tamil movie “Ninaithaalae Innikum” directed by K.Balachandar in the  nineteen eighties.

Here is the song “she fills my heart”

It was refreshing to see Sridevi back in action after a long drought in the silver screen. The recent movie “English Vinglish” brought the legendary star back to the screen as a young mother.

The much-anticipated movie was released last week simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu across the globe. I had the opportunity to see the movie in Hindi with English subtitles in Australia.

English Vinglish is Sridevi’s first movie after 15 years of absence since she married the producer Boney Kapoor.

The top star from the last century has returned to the celluloid screen portraying a traditional Marathian mother from Pune.
