A film buff turns to mush

The film buff father takes the child for a movie when the mother is away on a shoot.

The film :Luck by Chance.

The father, all choked and overwhelmed, calls the mother, " She is a genius " he gushes.

"While watching the film she turned to me and said, Papa, yeh to film ke undar film hai."

I suspect the father had tears in his eyes.

Probably similar emotions to normal fathers who puff up with pride when their progeny kick the football perfectly.

hey ammani, f'naz and boo- dont let me down- this post was a 'see how the father is wired wierdly' post! you are meant to giggle with me...

Banno said...

No, no, no giggles please. It's serious business, realizing how much our kids love the same things we do. It used to thrill me when Dhanno could identify films just by watching a single frame. Still does. Particularly since I have such an abominable memory.

banno: aisa kya? you mean i should be delighted when she asks mumma, aaj kaunsi film dekhaoge? jari mari ke turtle waali? she usually follows that question with- aap baar baar film kyon dikhate rehte ho?

Cynical mom?

Banno said...

At least she's still asking to see your films. Unlike Dhanno who's taken to lecturing me on how I need to be more market-savvy!
