My Favorite movie list published in Newspaper!

Hi Guys,

Today morning, a surprise was waiting for me. My list of favorite movies appeared in Newspaper with my name on it.

Every Friday there a supplementary issue named MetroPlus Weekend comes along with The Hindu Newspaper. In the issue, there is a column named My Five in which readers can contribute their favourite five movies. As I see a lot of movies, I got the idea of sending my favourite five. I emailed it some 15 days back. I checked the next issue eagerly, it was not there and I forgot it. Today morning, I read the paper as usual and after reading the paper, I took the supplementary (I usually read supplementary issues at the end). There was the list, the list I sent. Well, I was shocked for some time. I was unable to believe it for some time.

When I said to dad he was too happy, even I wasn’t that happy. Don’t know why he was so excited?

Here is a photo of the column.

Well, there were a few corrections in the sentences. Some words were deleted, included or altered to give a better look. As far as the list is concerned, it is my favorite list. I saw the movie ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ after sending the list. If I had seen it earlier, I would have inserted it in the 4th place and that would have pushed ‘Fight Club’ outside.

Happy Reading!!!

    Thanks a lot! I haven't heard of Eastern provinces. There is a movie called Eastern promises. The movie deals with a Russian teenager in London. I'll check out for eastern provinces.

  3. Thats a great thing... To have your name in a leading newspaper is great...

  4. add the imdb link too...i think imdb is the best website to know if a movie is really good..i always check out the user comments in it before watching a movie...
