Only You

Oh! Damon Bradley ! The bane of our (womens’) existence.

A young girl of 12-13 years of age ,with her group of friends visit a fair where her brother had naughtily passed a dime to a seer-lady asking her to tell his sister about a dummy name “Damon Bradley” and let her know that this name will play an important role in her life – all this just to prove his point !

The seer lady told her of this name and along with that she also told her that man makes his own destiny .

The girl grows up and is soon going to get married to a doctor. Her brother is already married . Her brother’s wife is not very happy about the marriage as there is a communication gap between the two of them. The heroine is very fond of old romantic movies and watches such mushy movies with full concentration – and day dreams that she will one day find a man of her dreams who will sing and dance with her on the swing, around trees etc – surprisingly this thought process is much like our mushy hindi (Indian) film heroines.

Coincidentally , while she was trying out her new wedding outfit, someone by the name of Daemon Bradley called up and she thought that God wants her to marry this man only ! – how very innocent these girls are all over the world I must say ! The way the Follywood Directors have marketed such clichéd statements like “Someone is there somewhere waiting for you only…Only you” – etc. – such silly dreams as shown to the girls all over the world is pretty misleading !- The Fairy Tales are to be blamed for such utter dreamy headedness among girls !

Anyways , with her wedding day just 10 days away , she packs her bags and along with her frustrated sis-in-law runs to find out who the man is – her dream man by the name of Daemon Bradely !! – just to get a glimpse of him !! – She leaves her fiancé in a frenzy to meet with this unknown stranger – showing that she had agreed to marry the well settled Physician just to get an anchor for life who will provide her with food, clothes and shelter !

Anyways , she meets a good looking fellow who had heard that she was looking for a guy called Daemon – on seeing her gullibility , he said that He is the one – so she starts to date him and even kisses him on the mouth ! (although its not all that a big deal for American girls to kiss anyone or even everyone they meet…as per Hollywood Movies) – once while they were about to jump on each other on a bed in some hotel, the fellow (who was actually a shoe maker / designer or something) confesses that his name is not Damon !

She immediately kicks him off her body and severs relationship with him with immediate effect.

The last scene was in the Airport the name Damon Bradley was called out and both the girl and the fraud rush to see the man – and it turns out that he is an older man – not even good to look at – and the fraud sniggers and says to the girl that she is most welcome to accept the one she has been waiting for all her life !!

The girl also realizes that she has been a fool – but at the same time also realizes that the fraud is better looking than the Physician fiancé – so she decides to dump the poor Doctor and run to the liar fraud !! – I wonder how she might have reacted if the Damon Bradley(called out in the Airport) fellow has been young and good looking ...better looking than Peter ie.!!

Lesson Learnt : Girls are dreamy fools.Its time they wake up !!

RE: Only You

I've been contemplating how to respond to this without sounding..ummm... mean...

First, this is the message board for review writers, not the place to post reviews. I'm certain that this movie is in the database so you can post a review for it where folks will see it, but honestly I'm too tired to find it for you at the moment.

Second.. review, here, means personal opinion, not book report. What you have posted here would not fly. It is the screen play regurgitated... if you decide to write a review, the best way to go about it is to first read other movie reviews rate Very Helpful to get an idea of what I'm talking about... usually a very brief plot set up, with the rest of the space being hwat you liked and did not like about the movie..

I know know know this sounds snarky... and I am sorry for that. I really am trying to help you out here and not be mean. Allow me to blame this lack of diplomacy on a high dose of pain meds this past week.. heh.

Please do stick around and give it a shot. You may even make a few bucks here and there ;)

RE: Only You

Pretty much ditto everything Doc said - I've been trying to work out how to repoly here too. Try posting some movie reviews on the site and see what reaction you get - not forgetting the all important opinion bit as Doc mentioned.

Please email me if you have any questions about the site.

thanx for the review

thanx to both Doc & CaptainD for reading my review and even taking the pains to reply !

Now that was one great gesture - honestly ! read my other reviews - I am trying to make people watch 'movies' with a different perspective - so that thay learn something from the movie - instead of just 'fantasizing' how it would be like to have a 'boyfriend' as good looking as the hero..and vice versa and spend the rest of the life thinking about reading in magazines - what the Actors eat,drink , dream etc !!

actually you could go through my sites and see what I have written -www.itsybitsy.co.in
www.creativity.itsybitsy.co.in

bye

How about a more direct...

...
How about a more direct approach..??

aumaparna . . .your 'reviews' are in the wrong place on the site.

This is a message board, not the place to publish reviews.


Here:

http://www.epinions.com/content/write.html/tnode_~42254

...is the URL where you need to go to write and publish a review of the movie Only You.


Each of your other 'reviews' posted here will also (hopefully) have similar product and 'write-a-review' pages here on the site.


If you need help finding them . . .just ask.

You are welcome, no problem.


I know I welcomed you at at least one of your reviews. I hope you find and read those comments, mine and others, and take your time learning the ropes and 'figuring out' the site.

There is a place for everyone and every voice. You certainly do not have to be as addicted as many of us message boards posters seem to be.


Again, welcome to the site.

RE: thanx Tom !

Since you got your reviews posted in the correct spots, I went ahead and deleted the rest of them on the message boards ;)

I'm leaving this one up because it may be educational to other new members who stumble in to the message boards first.

Doc
