Song of the Day

One of my all time fav songs….absolutely love it!! I am not a great fan of Aerosmith…but whenever I listen to this song….dil mein kuch kuch hota hai 😉

Random Thoughts…

  1. Over the week, my thoughts lingered around the killing of 75 Jawans in Dantewada. I just could not understand how something like this could have happened? Heights of intelligence failure. It was right of the Home minister to tender his resignation…it is shameful and such incidents should not happen ever again. Can you imagine, our county has lost 75 of its bravest citizens. What a Loss! But what surprises me the most is that the public seems to have coolly moved on. I cannot help but draw parallels between the Mumbai attack and Dantewada massacre. When Mumbai happened, public was on the roads…angry…and they wanted answers. We turned out in our thousands…there were candle light vigils up and down the country..people were in mourning.  Why is it that we did not see such a reaction in response to this incident? Does the Jawans lives mean nothing to us. Is it because they do not speak English…or because they are not from big cities? We should be ashamed as a nation for letting this happen. I am not saying that naxals should be wiped out etc etc…I am not qualified to make any suggestions of such sort…but I feel this should not have ever happened. Cannot help but wonder what would have happened if 75 cops/security people were killed in UK (where I live)….would it have happened in the first place and even if it did…how would the government have reacted?
  2. I don’t feel like writing about the IPL any more. Somehow, seems very irrelevant. DC plays Bangalore today…and I hope they win. I was totally excited yesterday but after writing about Dantewada, IPL? Nahh! Don’t feel like it.
  3. I have decided to get an iPhone and not Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 as I posted in my earlier post. I went to a mobile store over the weekend and tried out a variety touch phones…and iPhone at the end of my inspection…and realised it’s so much more better than the rest. There are some cool apps….don’t know if I will use any but it’s nice to have them and some other interesting stuff!
  4. The weather kind of improved over the weekend but it’s dull and gloomy now…nothing new there but worth a mention 😀

Anyways, I want to end this post on a cheerful note, so here goes a very funny scene from Whose Line Is It Anyway..

Njoy!

Win Win Win!

Ahh…finally a win for the Chargers. I actually did not watch the match since I was busy ‘gymming’ 😀 My dad sent me a text which read ‘are you happy now?’ Oh my…did DC do it?’ -was my first thought! I still did not want to believe it…so went online on my ancient phone to check the score and we did do it!!! Three cheers to Suman for breaking the bad spell in the most important match. I only wish that they end up winning the remaining matches and atleast make it to the semis. It was nice to watch Venky cheering the team….high time we got our tolly celebs to do some of the cheer leading work 😀

Don’t know why I am so obsessed with the IPL. It’s not like INDIA is playing…just some stinking rich teams playing for money…not so much for pride….aahh well..some entertainment is better than none 😉

Planning to buy a new phone in the next couple of days. The husband wanted me to go for an iPhone but somehow…I am totally put off this piece of machine since almost everyone has it now. Wherever you go, the talk is about the iphone..you NEED to have these days to be part of the IT crowd…(cannot stress NEED and IT more). It’s become like a status symbol or something. So I planned to get a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. Looks quite sleek and apparently does all the things the iPhone does. So why not? I will leave iPhone to the husband.

Hearing some really bad songs of the maestro Illayaraja. I know…it’s wierd…didn’t know he composed such silly tunes. Here’s one:

The weather seems to be improving….kisiki nazar na lage 😉 Looking forward to a sunny weekend!

Ciao!

Leader and Ye Maya Chesave (YMC)

I had this pending…so thought I’ll go ahead and finish it!

Watched Leader and YMC couple of weeks ago. Frankly, both the movies did not impress me much. I had much expectations from Leader since the director’s Shekhar Kammular and the film starred Rana…..but I did not understand why Rana’s character had to be so serious all the time. He was more like a machine than a human being. I know he’s supposed to be this young politician and all but I am sure politicos also manage a smile now and then. I liked the whole concept of buying politicians to become the CM and all…but the rest was not worthy of giving a thought. The whole female(s) angle was unnecessary. Shekhar Kammula always had meaty roles for his heroines…but I was very disappointed with the choice of story line for the female characters in this one…they did not have to be part of the movie atall! The best part of the movie was the ending…with a very decent remix version of Maa Telugu Talliki. It was good to watch Andhra Pradesh again…as ONE!

Ye Maya Chesave (YMC) seems to have created ‘some’ hysteria in the urban centres of AP. Call me a cynic, but I wasn’t totally impressed. I loved the songs 😀 and that’s it. Again, Naga Chaitanya disappoints. He’s definitely improved from his first movie…but I did not understand why he always had this irritated expression on his face and a lazy tone to his voice. Samantha was good…but I did not like her character. For someone who comes across as a ‘know it all’…she took an awful long time to make up her mind about a guy she loves very much…fickle minded she was! The two characteristics don’t go together 😛 I loved the Alleppey setting…brought back memories of my trip there with S couple of years ago. Absolutely beautiful!

One of my favourtie songs from the movie 🙂

Songs of the Day

One of the most romantic songs ever

and a dance number

both from the movie Karthik Calling Karthik. Heard the movie is quite good…though the media gave some dubious reviews.

‘Bore’Raaj and Max’Pain’

Went to watch Yuvvraaj over the weekend and man what a experience it was!!!!!! Terrible! The only best part during the film was me ringing up my friend and telling her how fab the movie was (she was watching Dostana at that time)…and she ended up watching the movie and I get a call during the interval with a very annoyed person on the other side. ROFL!!!!

There are so many faults with the movie that I don’t even want to start counting. It was absolutely rubbish….the only good thing about the movie was its music/songs.

Also watched Max Payne…which I thought was OK. Movie could have been edited better…but what the heck…it had Mark Wahlberg in it 😀

Body of Lies review coming up very soon….and I loved Dostana 🙂

Right…so what else was happening this weekend. Oh yea…cricket. Didn’t watch it ‘cuz of the rain in B’lore…but what a BORING series this has been…I mean c’mon….the English cricketers didn’t even put up a fight and India won the series. Just wondering though, didn’t the Australians ever get bored of watching their team winning all the time???

The weather as always is very gloomy. Depressing!! It definitely will be much better in India where I will be in the next 3 weeks. Yippee!!

I’ve updated my photoblog…do take a look and leave any comments)

Pappu Can’t Dance Saala!

I am soo excited. Read rediff reviews of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (JTYJN) and Love Story 2050 and you will know why. JTYJN apparently is jhakaas while the latter seems to be crap and boy am I happy!!!!!!!! I mean….going by the trailers itself…I had my own doubts about Love Story 2050. The Pink Teddy on Priyanka’s shoulders looks absurd, Harman’s dance with the robots…God!!! I mean c’mon….jhatak mataks in a land of robots??? Be realistic!!! Imagine a bhangra number suddenly popping up in Will Smith’s ‘I RObot’ or Bruce Wills’s ‘Fifth Element’. GOsh!! I do like our song & dance numbers but they should be situational.

I desperately want to watch JTYJN. Songs are wonderful…I listen to them atleast 5 times a day…loved Genelia in Bommarillu….Imran seems to have got his acting skills from Uncle Aamir and Abbas Tyrewala is definately one of the most talented guy’s in Bollywood…it cannot get better than this and Pappu Can’t Dance Saala basically rounds up my Philosphy of life 😈

Njoy!!!
