Movie Night - Taking me Back to India

The Hubby and I went to see The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel on Saturday night and it was fantastic! Having seen the first one, I was keen to see whether this one lived up to it and while there was a fairly thin storyline, it was still full of the sights and sounds of India.

As with the first one, I was transported back to the wonderful month we spent in India some years ago. I even remembered the peculiar fragrance of India, a mix of spices, vegetation and other things you wouldn't want to linger on! When I got home I pulled out the photos and had a look. These are just a few of the truly gorgeous places we saw!

The movie has a great all star cast, with my favourites, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy. Richard Gere pops up too but it is definitely Judi Dench and Maggie Smith who steal the show! I've decided I'd like to be Maggie Smith when I grow up , her one liners are just brilliant. There is even some Bollywood dancing and who can resist that!

So, if you are looking for a good night out filled with colour, laughter and some excellent one liners this is the one for you. I heartily recommend you go see it and be transported to India, a truly magical place.

What movies have you seen and loved? Are there any that remind you of a favourite holiday? What places are on your holiday bucket list? India was never on mine but I'd go back in a hearbeat as it was one of the best holidays I've ever had!
