If only....This movie was not made

Last night I was relaxing after completing all my chores. After a mental check of the completed activities ( Ironing clothes for next day, arranging my bag, packing up my laptop, kissing parents goodnight, popping my iron tablets ), I decided to lie down n watch some tv. As I was just browsing through the channels, I saw that a movie called Ru ba ru was playing on star gold. I vaguely recall someone telling me that this movie was a bollywood remake of the hollywood one " If Only ". I just love that movie. Its probably the most romantic movie I've ever seen. I have seen it atleast 6 times n I can watch it all over again. Thanks Kannan, for giving me that movie :-). So, after perching myself perfectly on the couch with some chocolates, I decided to watch the so called remake. Not that I was expecting a mind blowing movie but still there is a limit to how pathetic a movie can get. The movie was all wrong right from the start. Its a perfect lift from the original including

Splash Of Love

I'm in love with the Limca ad starring Sushma Reddy and Indraneil Sen Gupta. Its soo cute. The couple look so much in love. Its so refreshing the ad. I hate the drink though. It tastes like soap water to me. But the ad gives me goose bumps each time I see it. The lyrics make me go "Awww.....". The locales are lovely. I want to do the same ad with the guy I love :-). I hope the concerned person understands. I am glued to the tv each time they feature the full ad. Whoever thought of it is a genius. Its really cutttttttteeeeeeeeeee!! Check it out to feel the splash. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgT7ueACtxw

M(asala) Tv

I just started watching the new season of S plitsvilla on Mtv . Aptly titled S plitsvilla 2. The first season was kinda good. Hot girls trying to woo the hottie Vishal n the not so hot Varun . Varun ?? Why God why? Why him of all the people. That guy was a loser right from day one. Was kicked out from Roadies 5.0 in the very first episode. Later came back n succeeded in convincing people that he is actually good at something. What you ask?? Obviously in being a lady boy. Hmmm ... that dint work either when he was chucked out again. I couldnt believe that such lovely girls were fighting over a loser like him. That too a loser who had his nipples pierced on national television :p. Vishal just rocked with his cute dimples n surely deserved Shraddha n to win the show. Btw their new show together "Couple Sutra " is not that great. Well as long as I get to watch Vishal its fine with me :-). Splitsvilla 2 is well....hmmm...err...not that good. Its too complicated with equ

Gratitude

A feeling of gratefulness is the best way to achieve happiness and a good life. Gratitude, the feeling of thankfulness and joy in response to receiving a gift, is one of the essential ingredients for living a good life. Studies have found that men were much less likely to feel and express gratitude than women. Women usually feel greater levels of gratitude when presented with gifts. Because men are generally taught to control and conceal their softer emotions, which may be limiting their well-being. Three elements are essential for creating happiness and meaning in life: meaningful relationships, gratitude, and living in the present, with an attitude of openness and curiosity. Stay happy n keep others happy!! Live n let live!!

Happy Birthday Aamir

Hey its Aamir Khan's birthday today. For me he shall always be the king of Khans. Mr. Perfectionist always makes the perfect movies. Be it Bhuvan of Lagaan or DJ of Rang de Basanti his characters always leave a mark. But his best performance till date will be Andaaz Apna Apna. I actually liked Mangal Pandey as well. I donno why it lost out at the box office. Ghajini was overhyped but I dint like it much. Was too loud. But I still love his movies. Thanks for Taare Zameen Par i particular n thanks for giving us Imran Khan:-). Happy Birthday Aamir. You surely dont look 44!!

The Rickshaw Menace

Whenever I decide to settle down in a city, the only one that comes to my mind is Bangalore. This place is nothing less than heaven. This city of joy has the most pleasant climate at all times. Its a party hub as well as the IT hub. What more do you want. As they say that the best things in life always has an ugly side to it, the same applies to the city as well. The ugly side being the million Autorickshaw drivers who rule the city. Man they are theives in disguise. I can safely say that 99.99% of them are dishonest. The price that these guys demand these days is equivalent to an airticket sometimes. It just doesnt make any sense. When they have a meter fixed to their vehicle, why on earth do they quote their own price. Trust me, sometimes it feels like an auction. Its not that their meters are perfect either. Either their meters are tampered or their brains. Today as I was travelling to office in a rick the meter suddenly bounced from 23 bucks to 47 bucks. As i reached half my jour

LOL :-)

When I'm tired of working I take a break and read some crazy quotes. N trust me they never fail to cheer me up. Here are a few of my favourites. Beauty isn't worth thinking about; what's important is your mind. You don't want a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head. By working faithfully eight hours a day, you may get to be a boss and work twelve hours a day. I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. I recently read that love is entirely a matter of chemistry. That must be why my wife treats me like toxic waste. Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead. I always wondered why babies spend so much time sucking their thumbs. Then I tasted baby food. My grandfather likes to give me advice, but he's a little forgetful. One day, he took me aside and left me there. Simply because nobody disagrees w

Doped!!

While reading the news paper one saturday morning, my eyes literally popped out of my head. I was on the movie review page where the movie Dev.D had got a 5 star rating (*****). I was like "What on earth is happening". I had never seen a bollywood movie with the highest rating. As far as I can recall Kill Bill was the only movie with a perfect rating. I had watched Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas . Primarily because it starred Shahrukh Khan. I enjoyed the movie but there was nothing over the top about it. The story seemed too predictable. But Madhuri's costumes were to die for. The ending actually depressed the hell out of me. After having read the review of Dev.D, me and my sister decided to go watch it. We have seen the worst of movies together so we thought one more will hardly make a difference. But the minute the movie started we were like "WOW" n there was no looking back. It is a movie made for the present generation. Abhay Deol actually proved that

Midweek Bliss

Yay!! Today's a holiday. Even the thought of not going to work on a weekday would bring a smile on every techie's face. So here's mine :-). Its not that I dont enjoy my work, I love what I do but I cant help but rejoice waking up late n lazing around for an entire day. Smile again :-). Waiting for the weekend is something everyone does, so when you get an off midweek its a blissful surprise. Sleeping, relaxing, watching a movie, reading or spending time with a loved one destresses me and motivates me to work hard the next day. Atleast thats how it works for me. Now coming to the point, its holi today. Else we would'nt be having an off in the first place. After a mini celebration of holi yesterday at office I'm done. I've got nothing against colours. Its jus the aftermath that worries me. The washing and cleaning up part. People look colourful for days together :P. N let me not get started on the whole bhaang issue. Multicoloured people acting crazy is the last

Master Of The Game

Sidney Sheldon termed Kate Blackwell as the Master Of The Game in one of his novels by the same name. After watching the bombarding performance of Kate Winslet in " The Reader " and " Revolutionary Road " I'd love to honour her as The Master Of The Game. No wonder she ruled the award functions this year. She has always been underrated as an actress. After like a million nominations she won this year n truly deserved it. I was actually hoping that she would win when she was nominated for the magnum opus "Titanic". None of the top leading ladies would have been half as convincing as she was as Rose. Yeah, Leonardo rocked too as the pauper Jack but I honestly felt that it was Kate who was the winner all the way. After watching The Reader I was just amazed. The movie is truely a masterpiece. Those who hav'nt watched it, rush n watch it cos you're missing out on something big. Kate excelled here as Hannah the illiterate. The way the movie unfolds

Love is......

Love makes the world go round. According to me being in love or being loved is the best gift of God. Love is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.. I wrote these verses for someone very close to my heart.. Although it was not love at first sight, It was you I thought of morning,noon and night.. Earlier it seemed so hazy n blue, Then i realised I was in love with you.. For my feelings there was no start or stop, It was always gradual, hop by hop.. Before I understood these feelings were new, I knew I was in love with you.. The days,minutes and seconds we spent together, Those are the moments I always remember.. Wanna tell you a million things,but words I get are few, Darling, I'm in love with you.. Sweet, caring, crazy but loving, Thats my sweetheart, cute and charming.. Sounds insane but its true, Yes, my honey I'm in love with you.. Life with you seems so bright n beautiful, You erased my worries n made it colourful.. Holy as the bible n as pure as dew, Tha
