Kutte Kaminey .....Main Tujhe Bahot Pyaar Karungi :D

Some of the Most Memorable Filmy Dogs and Doggy Films !


A warning : This is an indulgent post paying some serious homage to cuteness. If You are not the type- Take a hike darling!

Tuffy From Hum Aapke Hain Kaun? : he was the first filmy dog that I fell in love with. The film is a terrible weakness, whenever it airs it just pulls me like a magnet (yes even now!) guess I'll never be too grown-up for it ! Tuffy was cutest little doggie ever, from leading Salman to the Jootis in Joote do paise lo, to being the biased umpire for the cricket match, from sitting snugly in Salman's car during Mausam ka jadoo to the scene where he refuses to eat after Renuka dies...and the masterstroke of giving the necklace to Rajesh in the end...so unapologetically "filmy"....he just stole my heart...... very much like the film did !

PS:  As the creator of Tuffy, Barjatiya should have committed suicide after creating that hideous parrot in that hideous film Main Prem Ki Deewani Hun...... that was a horror movie not family drama

Moti from Teri Meherbaniyan : I will not be surprised if all  of you raise your eyebrows wondering "who the fuck is that? " it's not a much talked about film simply because the hero was an Alsatian dog , the actor Jackie shroff dies, the heroine is raped and murdered...and hold your breath..... the narrative continues with Moti hunting down each of the three villains and killing them !!! I just stumbled upon this movie one day when i was still a school-going girl, and I remained glued to that channel till the movie came to an end. Will not watch it again but loved the herculean effort portrayed !!!

Beethoven : A giant huggable drooooooly baby ! No one can miss him..... what can one say??? He charms you with the most obnoxious tricks..... he does not exist in the world, the world exists around him....disdain is his middle name and mischief his first.......just ADORABLE! he just huffs pufffs and droools his way into our hearts !


Marley from Marley and Me :  Rachael Jennifer Anniston in a movie centred around a golden retriever.....Life can be perfect at times ! the sheer havoc this dog creates can challenge the wits of the most patient person..... The best scene I guess would be the obedience class one........one uncontrollable sweetheart this one was...needless to say if you love dogs the last scenes will be quite a tear jerker!

Lassie In Lassie Come Home :  There are mischievous ones ....there are lazy ones...then there are ones to whom you can just say "Take A Bow!".... Lassie  ...is one of them...always found her to be this kind grandmotherly darling type ...a classic !

102 Dalmatians : One dalmatian is enough to make you go down on your knees to pet them till eternity ...with more than a 100...who can complain?.....but a confession...I really admire that Cruella lady......her wardrobe is hilarious .... and her hairstyle reminds me of Indira Gandhi....sorry Mrs. Gandhi ! I especially love the mummy daddy dalmatian couple !

and A Special Meintion :  Comet From one of my all time favourite serial.."Full House"...he was a golden retriever ...and one whole episode was dedicated to how he runs all around the city with his lady love !!!

Cheers !

@ Harish.......it is not a "genre"... in the literal sense...just that I love dogs.......You can try watching Lassie..

Aurora said...

quite liked this post...
shows how much a canine lover u r...
but y dont u hav a pet i wonder...
neway, i loved beethoven n quite liked tuffy but 'Marley n Me' is my fav dog-movie ever... everytime i see it, i start planning to adopt one lab...

chatterbox unplugged said...

@ Aurora.... Glad you liked the post...i don't have a pet because 1. not enough space in my house, 2. mom and dad are not dog lovers , so no one to really care for it when I am not there

I really feel bringing home a pet and not caring for it would be the most abominable thing to do...so have to wait till I am ready !

Oh Btw...If you get a lab ..M gonna drop by uninvited at your place ! :)

akshi said...

ok im very late in replying to this post but I just stumbles across this one :)
Im a dog lover and specially love all the Dog movies!!
And I don't know whether you've seen Hachiko but do check out if not. Its a great movie about a dog who remains loyal and faithful to his master even after his death. It's based on a true story and is really heart touching!

moo-moo said...

Hey Akshi, thanks for reading...and I haven't watched Hachiko...will surely catch it sometime!

moo-moo said...

moo-moo said...
