[livejournal.com profile] filmi_girl came over yesterday and brought with her Madrasapattinam, a Tamil movie about the forbidden love between a Tamil man and an English woman on the eve of Indian independence.

You guys. You guys. I am so in love. It has everything I want in a movie - a forbidden love story, amazing costumes, hunky and brave hero, plucky and smart heroine, hissable villains, gorgeous songs, cool story. I have a new crush in Arya, who plays Parithi, our hero. Amy Jackson, who plays Amy Wilkinson, is also wonderful - she is warm and natural and has insane chemistry with Arya (I kept wanting to chant for them to make out on the floor for half the movie). I am glad she's sticking around and making another Tamil movie.

This is my favorite song in the movie, a fantasy sequence between Amy and Parithi which, basically, summarizes the story in a nutshell.



No movie has yet dethroned Magadheera from its "Dangermousie's favorite South Indian movie" throne, but Madrasapattinam came close.

In other news of favorite forbidden love, watching the mv for new Iljimae was a big mistake. All I want now is to watch that drama. I can't concentrate on either Secret Garden (Joo Won won't hold a sword blade in his naked hand to protect his OTP?) or Mary (Mugyul is not likely to get stabbed in the back protecting his OTP. Unless the fathers go really crazy, that is). Ahhhh, I just want to watch Wallace Huo and Liu Shi Shi angst at each other. Since Iljimae is not out yet, I remembered I had some caps of the Wallace/Tiffany angsty forbidden love story from Chinese Paladin 3 where he's this perfect warrior monk on edge of enightment and she is an immortal earth guardian, and they are destined to be tragic lovers for three lifetimes, which has already happened twice.



She promised the monks to stay away from him in this lifetime and they sealed his past life memories (their lurve is so amazing it stays in memory after reincarnation, Mmmmmm) but of course she can't stay away and he can't stop loving her even though he has no idea who she is. MMMMM. I bet it will end in a pile of corpses. Anyway, I loved these sequences.
