my main man..C H A R L I E

I had completely forgotten how much I loved this movie when I first saw it. I saw it probably for the nth time yesterday, after a break of some years and, I sat engrossed the whole one hundred and thirty three minutes of it. I was supposed to be working alongside, but what can I say? I never got to my backpack to even open my books!

The Rain Man starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise released in 1988. You can read more about that here .

I cannot quite remember when I saw the movie first, because I probably saw the movie in pieces initially. However every scene made an impression, Hoffman and Cruise walking together out of Wallbrook, walking out of the airport, riding down escalator in las vegas, the drive ...There just are so many.

There are scenes in the movie I never quite forget. At that note, after contradicting myself in about 15 lines I recommend you watch the movie and then perhaps this is not a contradiction.

Aaah..I had seen this movie the first time with my bldg. friends in Eros (or one of those in south bombay). Don't know how many times I have seen it since. It is definitely one of my favs as well...definitely :)

I remember you talking about it constantly when we were in school (I forget which grade IXth, Xth, XIth or XIIth?). I couldn't escape it, after all we used to share our school-desk ;))
