Looking Inside From Outside

Having 4 days of official leaves in my hand, I planned out to watch couple of movies. But that plan didn’t worked out for many reasons. The biggest: I caught cold.

So watching multiple movies plan turned into a single movie watching and what I watched made me really glad.

By the title of this post, you must have an idea which movie I’m talking about.

That’s right! I’m talking about Inside Out

Please stop right here if you haven’t watched it yet. This post contains some spoilers about the movie


Ever wonder what’s going on inside other person’s head?

Well, watch this great movie and you will find the answer. How 5 basic human emotions (joy, sadness, fear, anger and disgust) control our lives, right from the very first breath we take.

Okay, I’m not here to talk about what I liked about this movie. I totally loved it (like all other great Pixar movies I love) and there is no question about it. Minds at Pixar Animation literally gave us probably the cutest idea of how our mind works and it sure is wonderful.

The movie is about a little girl named Riley who we see experience life via her basic emotions, which I have mentioned above. Right from her first breath to probably the boldest step of her life, Riley’s emotions show us how we, the rest of us, are basically driven all the time by them, without even knowing it.

After watching the movie, I replaced Riley with Uzair in mind and that gave me a whole new perspective about how my own flesh and blood go through joy, sadness, fear, anger and disgust.

Uzair shows all of them in his own way, just like all other kids. Most of the times, he is joyful. When I warn him up for not doing something wrong, he gets sad and even cries. He does show anger along with fear. Saying no to many things in disgust is his favorite too.

I can tell you, after watching Inside Out, I’m looking at Uzair from a totally new angle and this will help me a lot in not only understanding his personality, but also making it a good one.

Watch this movie. I highly recommend it. No matter if you are a parent or a child, this movie really portrays what’s going on inside your head in a truly remarkable way.

      I shed a tear or two when Riley runs back to her home and hugs her parents. At that moment, I pictured my own son.
      Movie is indeed good! Already added in my Best Movies list of 2015 🙂
