Prem Ratan Dhan Payo - THE REVIEW

I have followed Salman Khan's career since I was a kid. His first film Maine Pyar Kiya released when I was Born. It is still one of my favourite films of all time. This movie was directed my Sooraj R. Barjatya the same guy that directed Hum Aapke hai Kaun and Vivah. It was only fair that if these two talented souls were going to work together. the film would HAVE to be a Blockbuster.
This had to be one of the BEST movies I have seen in the last 10 years without fail. I have been pretty unimpressed with Bollywood recently, but I must say that Salman Khan has kept Bollywood as it should be. With movies like Dabangg and Bhajrangi Bhaijaan. He is a very underrated actor and I love that.
We all know some very overrated actors in the Bollywood industry, I agree that they are talented but their movies have no real meaning to them any more.
This movie took me back to my childhood of watching a film that had the importance of Family and Love running through it. Those are the kinds of films I want to watch. The importance of life was seeping through this film and I felt so much happiness watching it.
Salman has completely out done himself with this movie. I loved seeing new Actors and Actresses instead of the overrated type we see. It made the film feel real and raw.
I would most definitely watch this again and ask you to give this movie a go too.
Sonam Kapoor shined like the star she is destined to be. She has finally shown her real talent in this movie. Good on her. I know people had their reservations about this duo, I sure did as I didn't think it would work. They casted the right person for sure. It worked so well.
Was lovely to see Neil Nitin Mukesh in this movie. Its about time these underrated actors were given roles to show their full potential. He played his character really well.
The Soundtrack
Himesh Reshammiya was behind this magical soundtrack. I have been playing this FULL soundtrack over again and again. Again, this was one of the reasons I felt so nostalgic whilst watching it. I love the songs "Jalte Diye" and "Aaj Unse Milna" the most but the whole soundtrack is decent.
The songs took me back to the evergreen days. Romantic songs at their best. Full of love, light and emotion. I have nothing but great words to say about this soundtrack.
The Clothing & Sets
Every few minutes I was nudging my Husband and whispering " we need to get married again, I want you to wear THAT, and I want to wear THAT. Oh my god look at THAT outfit!"
The outfits had that Mughal look, so rich and traditional. Gorgeous! I wish I could find some great photos of the sets online but I can't find anything decent enough to give the sets any justice. They defined BEAUTY!
Happy Diwali. Hope you enjoyed my review.

"Cleaner" Eating - Here's my story so far..

If you follow me on Social Media you would have seen the sudden increase in photos of and around food.
I have always wanted to attempt the Organic way of life but when you live with your family who cook and spend so much time and love on their cooking, its difficult to give it a go.  I've always tried and tested natural remedies and bought local Honey as oppose to the Supermarket stuff.
NOW.. I'm in a place where I have the say in what is going to be bought and cooked. I have read so much about the amounts of Chemicals in mass produced Fruit, Vegetables and Meat but it confuses the life out of me. "This is good, but this isn't!" Well.. what's good for you?
"What does organic mean in food?

    It states that organic meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic plant foods are produced without using most conventional pesticides, fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge, bioengineering or ionizing radiation. " - Definition taken from Google
I grew up on Fruit and Veg from my Grandads garden as well as the local Market. As soon as the Supermarkets came along with their BOGOF offers.. the local Market became seriously unpopular.. "Well.. it goes off quicker!" .. Well, Yes! That's because it hasn't been infected with disgusting chemicals to prolong its life.
People will always have an opinion on this subject.. By no means am I right.. I just feel better for eating Organic.
I buy Organic Fruit & Veg from a local Farmers Market. Yes! it does go off quicker but wouldn't you prefer that to eating a bunch of Chemicals?
Dependant on where you shop, I find buying from a Farmers Market is around the same price as buying from a Supermarket.
I will continue to do this.. Mr UnLeeshd & I are currently going Vegetarian for the month of October :) We have consumed a lot of Fresh Organic Fruit & Veg. After this month, we will begin buying Organic Meat too.
What is your opinion on this subject?
