Ever heard of a Marathon where the Participants wouldn't have minded a Second Go???
This kind of a Marathon happened. On top of a terrace. A Movie Marathon. Some simply amazing movies and a few handpicked Documentaries, that's all what's needed to keep you awake for the night, of course the presence of a few people like Sudhish and Nandhu would help a great deal.
It was as simple as that. The RTFF finally happened. It started late by around an hour, that wasn't a big deal when we got to watch the movies that were in store for us. I don't wna review each movie that we saw cos it was done enough at the RTFF itself, and for those who missed it, as Ganesh so rightly said "can Worship my Ass". Lol
Blood Simple, Hard Candy, TFLW and Annie Hall were the 4 full length movies that were screened. And a few more Documentaries were enough to keep the 20 odd strong crowd awake till sunrise.
Everything about the RTFF was awesome, the Cool Terrace, the amazing Sea Breeze, the Lack of Mosquitoes and an awesome crowd. Personally the RTFF was totally different for me. For the first time ever, i was watching Movies with people who actually knew what they were talking about. We weren't there to comment on each and every scene. It was not like that at all.
What made this more interesting were the Small Discussions that we had after each movie. Everybody (almost) pipping in with their bits about the movie, criticisms, appreciations, technical novelties, all were explored and I don't think it could've been done any better.
There was everything, Smoking, Drinking, watching movies, literally everything. And for the record. I neither Drank nor Smoked. Family reads man. :D
A couple of Guys managed to get pretty high and sleep off half way through. Ganesh, Mr. Smart Ass was one of them (there you go Sagaro, happy??? :P)
All said and done, I guess this wouldn't be complete without the promise of more RTFFs to come up. I am looking forward to those. And I am also waiting to see some more gals. Probably next time it should be some time in the day, so that more gals can attend it. As a favour for the guys atleast. Suraksha was the only one this time. As I already knew her, it wasn't pretty exciting. :P:P
Anyways, the event was super cool and amazing fun. A truly unique movie watching Experience indeed. Here's to everyone who made this event possible. Thanks a ton people.
