The Best Real-Life Love Story Ever Made On Silver Screen

Last Week, I watched a terrific Malayalam movie new release - Ennu Ninte Moideen (Yours Moideen) based on the real life tragic love story of Kanchanamala and Moideen which happened in a small village Mukkam of Kozhikode during 1960s and 1970s. Kanchanamala is a Hindu while Moideen was a Muslim and the whole story revolves around the communal rivalries and the communication between love birds through letters, when Kanchanamala was kept under home arrest for nearly 25 years till Moideen's death in 1982 in a boat mishap. Sacrifice of Kanchanamala and her long wait for her sisters' marriage so that she can run away with Moideen without feeling guilty, not seeing each other at least one time for more than 10 years and creating a new language with new alphabets to write love letters when their letters got caught - they are just unbelievable incidents!

 

It's really hurting and more shocking that this movie is a real-life incident, which leaves a burning mark on viewers' heart. Though they loved each other and kept waiting for 25 years, their union didn't happen and Kanchanamala is still alive at the age of 73. She was in her early 40's then and was accepted by Moideen's mother soon after his death. She turned Moideen's home to a Women's Welfare Shelter which gave a new life to many prostitutes and widows and still active in her social life!!!!!

 

It is not at all easy to forget Kanchanamala and her eternal love and sacrifice. Has any such real-life heart breaking love stories ever made alive on silver screen before? Perhaps not!!!!!

We see number of such love stories in our area everyday. The only difference is that in your case the boy died but in our cases mostly the girls die. I hope you know what I mean. But I just have a simple question why is that it's always the Hindu girls and Muslim boys? If it happens the other way round too maybe the cases will more acceptable.

I really dont know any real life romance that has been made into films..However, all great love stories are tragic which beats the purpose of love and romance being the ultimate feeling there is ! I prefer happy love stories , the ones that end happily at least for a few years if not for life time ...

The movie 'Arth' is one of my favourite movies which is based upon Mahesh Bhat and Parveen Babi's love affair. I really loved the movie and gazal's by Jagjit Singh makes it more fascinating. Next is Silsila and we all know that it's about the love triangle of Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan and Rekha. Undoubtedly good but Arth is more touching in my opinion. Now, it's Talwar which has shaken our conscience.

I think Titanic is an obvious choice.
