To me this is what a film and a performance being liked really means…

Your husband is reticent to the point of being self-evasive. You are an incorrigible extrovert. How does it work so well between the two of you?

That old Physics law of attraction of opposites! Besides, I need to have a listener, and Murthy is the perfect listener. I realised early on that he is a man of few words, and that I should make my peace with it. Marriage works well if you don’t have grand expectations from each other. I talk, he listens, and it works. Murthy may be economical with words, but he’s a very giving person.

But you like going out for movies, and he’s certainly not one for that…

I take my sister with me. But recently, and it took some doing (the fact that the hall was very close to home helped), I made him watch English Vinglish with me. He liked it. I think it was a brilliant movie, and many middle-class women in India will be able to relate to the subject. Sridevi was a delight to watch.
