A MILLION DREAMS KEEP ME AWAKE







I wanted to watch a very good – heart-warming, feel-good, entertaining and inspiring – movie immediately after Christmas. I did not mind it was English, Hindi or any regional-language film… All that I wanted was  to feel happy and warm when I left the cinema hall.

So, yesterday was a Friday… I checked the new movies running in the nearby theatres. Finally, I settled for the English one – ‘The Greatest Showman’. Before deciding on this movie, as I always do, I did some google search about the movie, and I learnt, that it was based on the life of P.T. Barnum (1810-1891), who was considered to be the ‘Greatest Showman on Earth’, and played by Hugh Jackman. Normally, I don’t go by the reviews and the box-office success. Had I gone by that yard stick, I would have ended up watching ‘Star Wars’. But, both my wife and I chose not to watch ‘Star Wars’ as we would never understand the story... 

Call us 'dumb'... We don't mind.

We both felt very happy, that we watched ‘The Greatest Showman’, last afternoon. What we did not know was, that it was a musical… and a beautiful one at that!

Let me tell you: I am yet to get over the spell of the story, songs, music and dance… most importantly, the meaningful, powerful, inspiring and healing lyrics. ‘Never Enough… For me’ is the most mesmerizing song in the movie (In my view… though every song is so beautiful).  Incidentally, that goes for my feelings about the the movie – its story, songs, music, dance and lyrics… Yes, it will  be never enough for me… Never, never… for me!

I have been  desperately trying to get hold of the actual movie videos of all the songs. But, I haven't been able to. So, I share with you, here, whatever I could. Please go by the lyrics, vocals, and the music. I am not able to share the powerful performances… which would have left you spellbound!

So, I suggest, please watch the movie before it goes…
