Restart Blogging

After a long time, I have finally decided to start writing my blog. I have been reading up blogs by Himanshu Bhat Sheth, Guy kawasaki, Scott Adams and Rashmi Bansal. It seems to be interesting. So let me see as to what all can I think and blog about from now on.

Currently I have diverse topics to write on that vary from my personal life, tesch stuff, my readings on the net and about my work life.

I am not able to decide as to what should be the first topic on which I should be writing.
Hey I can write a film review. It shouldn't be that tough. So let me see.. umm...I saw Tararumpum and Namastey London last week with my girl at E-square.

So here it goes.

1> Namastey London : Unforgettable movie (Big pun intended). Plot revolves around discipling a young girl whose thinks she is British by nature. She hates everything that is Indian. Her dad tricks her to India where he gets her married to a Punjabi guy. The girl is unhappy and goes back to UK with her parents and her husband the night of the marriage. The girls parents are happily deciding to hold a grand reception for the newly weds when the girl throws the bomb.

She declares her marriage to be null as there are no legal documents to support it. The guy is devasted. The girl feels sorry for the guy and tells him that she is love with a British guy. And the guy tells her that he will wait till she gets married to this guy. Many incidents happen, the girl and the guy get close to each other. And finally when the girl is at the altar to get married to her prince charming, she realises that her true love is in fact the Indian guy.

Apart from the song "Ye veeraniyan" there was nothing good about the movie. Although the movie experience was great (My girl was sitting close to me arm-in-arm and smiling all the time :) ). Although the movie had some funny scenes like
i> A prospective groom is extremely influenced by "saas bahu" serials and repeats major pharases thrice and turns his head each time he says it.
ii> Vir Das, a standup comedian, (also a prospective groom) tries to make use of statistics to find compatibility between him and the girl.
iii> Rest were not that great but good for one time laugh.

So finally I can say that this was a passable movie. So if you haven't seen this flick, don't worry.

2> Tararumpum : My girl is a Saif and Rani freak. And if the two are there in the same movie, I have to watch it no matter if I was having a heart attack. The movie tickets were booked for the 1215 hrs show. So I woke up at 11 pm (Actually she came and whipped my ass and asked me to get my lazy bum into the bathroom). We reached the theatre at 1205 hrs. Lo behold. The parking was full at the theatre. I managed to find a small parking lot nearby, parked my vehicle and rushed back before her temper got better of me.

We managed to enter the theater in the nick of time. It was the silhoutte of Saif on the screen. The sound was loud. And all the girls were going "OOOOOohh ..Saiff". Even my girl goes weak in the knees for Saif. I wonder if he is actually that good. And so began an ordeal that lasted for 3 hours. Its funny feeling. I usually see Hollywood flicks which don't usually cross the 130 min barrier. But Bollywood!!! They need 180 mins to tell us that one should plan for the future but enjoy the present too. Are we fools or what ? By the time it was intermission, I had the feeling one has when he is drowning and can't swim back. His only hope is that someone pulls him out to safety or the water level recedes before he dies. The movie ended with fianlly and I was happy.

There is nothing more... Oh yes I lost 240 bucks watching this movie।

Useless I say !

I agree with your comments about that sick movie.. what crap.. America ke gareeb log bhi dikha diye.. hats off to bollywood..

I would say, if they were so gareeb in america earning 2,000$ per month in india.. they could as well catch a plane and come back to india...

but then heh.. Saif wouldn't race anywhere.. duhh....
