My First Movie Memory #TadkaTuesday

Jaibala/ November 22, 2016/ #TadkaTuesday/ 10 comments

How can someone who has grown up on movies remember her first movie memory? That is exactly what I wonder whenever I think of my first movie experience. From Power Ranges being the first movie I remember watching at Metro, to the first time I had to wear the3D glasses for a movie, there are so many experiences I want o share with you. So I am going to tell you a couple of my earliest movie experiences and memories.

The first one was Qyamat Se Qyamat Tak. It was my fourth birthday, and some family function as well. For some reason the movie was playing in an area of the function.  I remember sitting in front of the screen and watching the whole thing mesmerised, until my mother came to find me. That is the moment I knew that I had discovered a life long love and addiction. That feeling is what has stayed with me forever and what I feel every single time I watch a movie.

As I grew up I was equally obsessed with movies and music. I remember listening to a song and going to ask my mother which movie it was from. It was an Amitabh Bachchan song and even though mom was huge fan, she could not remember the movie. Now these are the days when you had to go to a video library to get a movie Cassette or VHS on rent and rent a player too.

So Mom and I stated watching every movie that Amitabh Bachchan has acted in, day after day patiently to find our song. With no Internet, no music channels and any access to information easily, this was the easiest way for us to find that song.

Weeks of watching movie after movie and we finally found that song. We rejoiced, not just for finding that song but spending so much time together. Creating innumerable memories and sharing many more laughs, is just a side effect of watching movies together, I think.

These were a few on my earliest movie memories. The first movie memory is not necessarily chronologically the first, but the one that stays with you for a life time. Wont you tell me all about yours?

  1. Weird…I can’t even remember what my first movie in the theatre was.
    Damn, I must be getting old.
    My parents were and are still avid movie goers though – so we still go when we meet up.

    1. If your parents were avid movie goers then it makes sense that you don’t remember the first. Don’t blame old age for it 🙂

  2. Superb ! First movie and that too QSQT, couldn’t get better. I remember watching Kaho na pyar hai…

    1. Thanks Atul. KNPH is one of my favorites too

  3. What a fun time you and your mother must have had, Jaibala! And, movies are really the best thing to bond over, esp Indian movies, with all the songs and dances. I love how they cater to every type of audience. You get what you want, be it arty, comedy, action, thriller, musicals, horror, you name it!
    Loved reading your post, dear!

    1. Yes Shilpa we really did.We also watch a lot of Lakshimakant Berde starring movies in those days. All of them were so much fun. So yes, I agree bonding over movies is so awesome. 🙂

  4. I can relate with your memories as my parents took us for all the movies as they loved watching them too. I also loved qyamat se qyamat tak and watched it many times. Movies have that kind of impact on us. Loved all the songs too and like you said I was obsessed with music too.

    1. Yes, movies do have the greatest impact on our lives sometimes. Like I said movie craziness runs in our family 🙂

  5. That was interesting, Jai. I really cannot recall the first movie l watched. Dad and mum were avoid movie watchers and used to take us along for so many.

    1. Technically the first movie I watched was Betaab in the theater, if what my mom says is true. I was too small to even know what movies were. But growing up movies and music was such an important part of my life, these memories are a testament to that spirit, I guess.
