For World AIDS Day
Today I saw 2 films on AIDS.
One was like a documentary but covered a lot of things in terms of cinematography. I don’t know the name as I started seeing it half way and VH1 didn’t have any commercials! What I really liked about the film was that it connected people from different places..told the story of different people..who were connected with the same disease,and at one point in their lives had met each other.
The next one was My Brother Nikhil (Victor Bannerjea,Sanjay Suri and Juhi Chawala).
I must say it really touched me,especially their performance with the songs and background music.A very well made film. It was really well put…the way people treat u if you’re infected. The movie really put u in Nikhil’s shoes…what if I was Nikhil.
N another message which was so true- It doesn’t matter how you got AIDS, what matters is how you react to it!
I wouldn’t have really felt the message if I hadn’t seen the pain society caused Nik. and his sis..even his friend..twas really deep. He stood alone..and and they fought for him. Even his parents didn’t help! That was really sick..and scary.
I know its pretty depressing to read stuff like this…but its world AIDS day and since I saw the 2 films..wanted to blog about it!
