Love.. has been one of the very pleasant mysteries since time immemorial. Scientist recently have managed to give at least a vague explanation blaming the hormones and giving weird names Oxytocin, Vasopressin and testosterone blah blah blah.. Nevertheless the true feeling of love the feeling of indispensable togetherness, the very thought of the lover’s welfare without any worldly expectations still remains a mystery.
This movie “My Sassy Girl” is a Korean movie on love. When in India where people call themselves most civilized and cultured take love for granted in movies and put unacceptable things in the name of love this movie is very decent and I could sense zero lust anywhere in the movie.
When the girl says true love is not about living happily with someone but letting the lover live happily, the exact words “Your girlfriend changed her mind, right?. Did you really love her.? Ask yourself. I think you didn’t. If you really love her, you should let her go, If not then it’s not love.” It not just breaks down the desperate soldier who lost his girlfriend to someone else in tears, but also touches our hearts. I don’t know how touching the lines are here, but in the movie they are.
The claim by the girl’s parents that the guy is an idiot and has no plans for his future does sound pragmatic. But the life without the one whom you loved truly, is it worth all the sumptuous living with someone rich or well to do. I really don’t know I never felt true love, between money is my career. Nevertheless this question of the existence of true love keeps hitting me every now and then.
knowing a guy as his lover's fiance the hero instead of showing his annoyance politely advises him on how to deal with the girl. When the girl runs for him hearing about this incident ah! I don't know how to put that in words.
The climax of the movie thank heavens is not tragic as in tamil movies. The climax of the movie is the best part of the movie. The logic that true love triumphs though fictitious (“building a bridge of chance for someone you love”) it’s better left unexplored. As the pop saying “Ignorance is bliss” some things are better left unknown, after all life is all about emotions and feelings.
