It’s always great fun to see films featuring the westerners visiting INDIA for their own distinctive purposes ranging from medical urgency to spirituality and a lot more. I truly enjoy such films portraying our country in both the wrong and right way together (due to their own ignorance) right from the days of projects produced/directed by Ismail Merchant and then the more famous award winners like A PASSAGE TO INDIA (1984) directed by the maestro David Lean.
Admittedly there have been many more films made on the related themes in the last few decades, but the reason for writing about THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL (2011) here are the three particular lines, the film comes up in its climax that redefines the meaning of life for its various characters fighting with their own problematic issues.
A film revolving around a group of foreigners visiting India, staying at the supposedly best Marigold Hotel, it might not be a masterpiece but remains a pleasant feel good venture offering an enjoyable amalgamation of Indian and Western cultures depicted in a loving style by director John Medden.
And the three important lines that need to be contemplated upon are:
“The only real failure is the failure to try.
And the measure of success is how we cope with disappointment.”
“The person who risks nothing, does nothing……….has nothing.
“Someone once said, everything will be all right in the end.
But If its not all right…….then trust me……….. its not the end yet.”
