Life Is Beautiful – “The Intern” Movie Experience


Previous Saturday being the “Only Me, Not going to talk to anyone else day” of mine, I was pampering myself with good workout, nutritious yummy diet, nice music and it extended to Nice movie along with shopping….

After a good shopping at mall, I was eagerly waiting at the lounge of the movie theatre eating my popcorn…and I was lil ahead of the movie time…so there was sooo much time for movie…
99 percent of the crowd was young…and my attention automatically directed to a an elderly couple….elderly in the sense ..the Gentleman is definitely 75 plus and The Lady 70 plus….

They were dressed in traditional Indian attire….The Gentleman even has a handowen wire basket with newspaper,water bottle,biscuits in it….The lady has a walking stick….they were cute…I was wondering which movie this elderly couple are waiting to watch…

Aftersometime, I reached near the entry of screen of “The Intern “movie….curiously waiting for the doors to open….afterall reviews of the movie were amazing….suddenly I find this lovely old couple near the entry of “The Intern”…I was sweetly surprised and felt happy seeing them closely…they both are interacting in amazing English…they were just bothered about each others safety…

The gentleman definitely seemed like the Grandpa in the “Up” movie…he smiled at me and don’t why but I felt sooo privileged and happy when he smiled at me. He said to me “Mam….Will you help my wife in reaching to our seat in theater…She needs help”…Then…the elderly lady smiled at me and said “I am fine…but please help my husband…he needs lil help”…and finally when the Gentleman insisted that his wife needs my help more….I took the elderly lady and but was ensuring that the Gentleman is also coming safely behind us….got them to their seats….they were sooo happy that I helped them..

I went to my seat with a sense of happiness and Feeling of privileged……I like such unpredictable people…

And the movie started….right from scene 1 this movie is a magic….this movie is about beautiful Master- Disciple ; Dad and Daughter ; Boss and Reportee chemistry of 70 plus years Senior Intern
Ben (Robert De Niro) and 30 plus Boss Jules (Anne Hathaway)…
Movie is all about how
Ben proves invaluable and wins over Jules with his hard-earned wisdom and compassion, providing Jules with much-needed guidance, as well as a trusty friend, as she navigates life’s ups and downs…yeah…I could relate to this movie very well though am not a Company Owner…each bit of this movie reminded me of my elderly Wise Best Friend Mentor Martin  🙂
And it’s a privilege in life having such wise mentors…
After a feel good factor of watching movie….I went back to the seats of the elderly couple…and I was sure they needed help ..I went to them…this time the elderly Gentleman was also comfortable in asking my help…they were soo happy…in the entire walk to the lounge…they were thanking me and sharing details about them..they told how much they liked the movie and how they managed to come to movie after a long time after the Lady’s knee operation..they felt soo happy knowing about me too and The Gentleman said they would be happy to drop me at home…I said I will go by myself….I said good bye to them and left the theater with lots of joy….I felt happy…everything about movie and everything about this elderly couple inspired me….

Life is beautiful…Life gives us opportunities when we too make our effort to live it….and above all we shouldn’t get stuck in normal and routine patterns…by thinking…”Aww…I am old…I am this…I am that…I should be doing only these…I shouldn’t be doing these… just because others said so”….
There is immense joy and beauty in life when we live it to fullest.

Don’t miss watching this beautiful movie


and this one too…
