It’s been more than 3.5 years since hubby and I went to a Cinema theatre together (we did go to Dev D when Lil P was at my mom’s place). We see a lot of movies.. But always on DVD. Just didn’t have the confidence to take Lil P earlier. What if she would start crying, one of us would have to spend time sitting out in the corridor. It would be equally agonizing for the other to sit inside. We also did not know of any1 who could take care of her in the evenings. So Lil P had never seen the insides of a theatre.
Yesterday however my mom n sister were also interested in watching the movie. So, we figured at any point of time, each one of us could watch atleast 75% of the movie in case she cried. So off we went to Innovative multiplex. 3 idiots would have been our first choice but there were no tickets. We settled for Avatar 2D. 3D would have been scary for her. And I’m happy to report, she behaved beautifully! *Anti-Jinx *
As we entered, trailers of ‘My name is khan’ were on.. n Lil P is a shahrukh fan!! That got her excited abt the “Big TV” as she called it! and PC got her a big box of popcorn.. n she was happy to sit quietly till it finished.. When avatar began, she got excited abt the helicopters, robots & dinosaurs!! The questions kept rolling… why is their face blue? Why are the lights off?? Mama -look big tree.
Once the popcorn finished, she promptly fell asleep!!! n woke up when the movie finished!!!
YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! I’m soo happy!!
In the evening, when my dad asked what she saw, here is what she said –
My saw Shahrukh khan.. flying in aeroplane and dinosaur fighting!!
