Live from Sundance.   
Jan,27,2010
 

My cell phone kept ringing middle of the night. I was too sleepy to do anything about it except curse and hit out wildly in its general direction. Woke up in the morning to see tons of texts messages. Wondered what the deal was. It wasnít my birthday or anniversary, or Eid or Diwali or Christmas. Read the first one and felt a wave of warmth pass through me.

Padma Bhushan.

Wow!

Felt so happy, and such a sense of pride. How I wish I was back home in India. Called my mom, and my brother and sisters. But still felt a huge void of not being back in India. Donít know how to explain it.

Want to thank my country for this honour.

Vande Mataram, ma tujhe salaam.

Want to thank all my well wishers, my fans, for their love, respect and unwavering support over all these years.

Thanks guys.

Another piece of good news is that our film Peepli Live was really well received here at the Sundance Film Festival. We had our first screening on the 24th at the Egyptian Theatre, Park City. Super reaction right through the film, and huge ovation at the end. Audience really seemed to love it. In fact you can read some of the responses on the festival site. Go to http:/festival.sundance.org/2010 , click on film guide, then search for Peepli Live

Also check out the review in Screen International online by David D'Arcy dated 25th Feb.

I was really keen to see the reaction here at Sundance as I wanted to get a sense of how a non-Indian audience reacts to the film. 90% of the audience was non-Indian. I am now even more certain that this film has the potential to engage a world audience. The big challenge, when we release the film worldwide, will be to get them in. It doesnít have any stars, and is in a language that they donít understand.

START THINKING GUYS, I NEED ALL THE HELP AND ADVICE I CAN GET ON THIS ONE!!!

In the meantime...

Ganatantra din Mubarak.

Love.

hey amir ,im a big fan of you...i like your movies...i think you are creating reforms to the indian cinema with your movies and message that you convey through the cinema...i would like to see movies related to science...like the achievements of indian scientists and the beauty of science.I know you are one actor who actually takes risks in making movies on subjects like these.Indians in general require more awareness in science and technology and the only way is through cinema.This is my first message in the blog.Thank you amir for your good movies and wish you keep entertaining us in the future as well

Hi Aamir,
I am from Turkey,
I met with Indian movies with your movies.
faana,ghajini,TZP and 3i,
I know many teen who want to watch your movies in theatre.however we cannot reach Indian movies on cinema or DvD.
This year some directors went to India to contact with bollywood( like Sinan «etin).But I dont know if there is any development,or not.
Anymore i dont want to wait.Please,I want to see your films in Istanbul.

Hi Aamir,
I am from Turkey.I try to reach 3 idiots till it is released.Today,at last,I could watch it.It is perfect as usual.
It is not necessary to worry about language.
Hindi is also an enjoyable language.
You was very good director in taare zameen par.I am sure that peepli live will be ok.

Hi Aamir,

I m frm Sydney n I m a big fan of urs when can we expect 2 see Peepli live in sydney???? I m sure the movie must be really gud. I m sure bcoz u wldn't involve urself wid a movie which has no content in it. U r for quality nt quantity. Plz let me knw whether ur fans in Sydney can get 2 see ur latest venture. I m against piracy n don't want 2 watch it online. Plz plz plz. Also if at all u r in Australia n in Sydney plz let me knw so tht atleast I can see u in action if normal ppl like us can't meet u n talk 2 u abt movies. Plz keep giving us gud movies. TC Padma bushan Aamir.
