If Emperor Akbar were to watch Ashutosh Gowariker’s Jodhaa Akbar, he would have said, “Wow man! What opulence, very impressive indeed.” And if Jodhaa and Akbar were to watch Jodhaa Akbar together, they would have definitely fallen in love with each other even if they did not back then. Jodhaa Bai would have told Jodhaa of the story, “Cut that fuss out lady! What else do you need?”

Yes, this is about the recent comedy thriller Mithya. But before I get to that, I want to give you a bit of background about my relation with movies. So hold your horses and go get some popcorn.
Growing up, watching movies was not a part of our childhood. There was no movie theater in our town, or we used to call cinema hall. We used to hear about movies a lot though from those who went to the city to watch movies. They had two theaters. And yes, it was before TV became a common house hold thing. Such were the times. We were more accustomed with the bioscope: the small box with little holes where you can stick your face and watch a few slides move around to give an illusion of movement. So it was always fascinating to hear about the movie theater; not necessarily the movies but how it felt to be inside one of them. As I later came to suspect, they used to add their own color about the city and the cinema halls.
