....and all that jazZ

Wednesday, May 18, 2005

Okay continuing the list. This morning one of my collegues mentioned that he has observed that I seemed to be in awe of this guy who works with us. So a discussion ensued. Here is a list of my favourite characters, fictional men I have fallen in love with at various points in this young life, in no particular order
1. Tom Cruise as Maverick - Top Gun
2. Rahul Bose as Gautam Ghosh - Mr and Mrs Iyer
3. Amitabh as Vijay - Deewar/ Trishul
4. Mr Darcy - Pride and Prejudice
5. Gail Wynand - The Fountainhead
Okay the rest are superhuman but I can't not list them
1. Keanu Reeves as Neo - Matrix
2. Sirius Black - Prisoner of Azkaban
3. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine - XMen
4. Viggo as Aragon - Lord of the Rings
5. Pierce Brosnan as and in - James Bond

As you can see, my ideal man is a myth :-) , If he is real then he is taken. :-)


  • I adore Rahul Bose in Mr and Mrs Iyer. I was blown away with AB in Deewar. But none of the others is among my fav list.

    I'd list some here --
    1) Al Pacino in Scent of a woman as Col Frank Slade.

    2) Jack Nicholson (Col Jessup) in A few good men.

    3) Edward Norton in Americal History X

    4) Chandar in Gunahon ka Devta

    5) Anupam Kher in Daddy

    6) Charles Strickland in Moon and Sixpence

    7) Meursalt in The Stranger

    8) Atticus Finch in To kill a mockingbird.

    9) Pathan in Kabuliwala

    Many more are there as well. You can see that my fav men are those who have a strong value-driven ethic :)

  • That was not the point mam. This time you got it wrong.

    But yes, I dont see anything heroic in any of them except the two I mentioned. But I didnt say that last time :p

    Anyway, I dont want to down anyone. Just thought to figure out my own list after being INSPIRED by yours :)

  • Probably...or else, you dont know what heroism means, like Ayn Rand didnt. Quite possible :p
