After searching for the name of a movie for the past 22 years, Yesterday I finally found it.
It was the first English movie Beautiful Eyes and I watched together. ( Geetanjali was our first movie, but it was in Telugu). I can’t remember the name of the Theatre. It was close to where Deepam silks is now on MG road.
I have hardly watched much English movies prior to going to Bangalore and didn’t know any of the actors. But, I was watching a movie with my boyfriend. Trust me, for an 18 year old there was nothing more special than a moment like this. Dark theatres = plenty of kisses as well, so I don’t remember much of the story line, except there was a scene in the movie when the cop and the trail guide meets a bear. It was the first time I saw a a brown bear, that too a big one. Until then I have only seen those tiny black bears you see in circus/travelling road shows.
I have asked every one of my friends of my age if they remember watching a movie with a bear in it. How to find a movie without knowing the title or the actors?
Yesterday was another one of those days where I couldn’t sleep and I thought I would search for the movie on google. I searched for black actors acting as a cop in the 80’s and other combinations and I finally found the movie.
Shoot to kill. ( I can’t believe that I didn’t know Sidney Poitier acted in it)
I heard on telly last night while watching Criminal Minds ” death ends a life, but not a relationship” ( Mitch Albom)
And I will live the rest of my days with the memory that I was once loved.. very much.
