Lagaan - Rajini Style

Rajinikanth decides to remake Lagaan where obviously he plays Aamir's role. This is how the climax of the movie is gonna be. Last ball of the last over, and 10 runs to win. Rajini at strike. He hits the ball and they win the match. Guess how? He hits the ball with so much force that it splits into two pieces. One goes for a six, and the other for a four! Mind it! ROFLMAO :D

The Beat

There is something about the above picture. I first saw it on some group on Facebook. I just remember sitting and staring at this picture for a long time. It gives me a weird kind of satisfaction. I don't know what the picture is supposed to mean, but for me it means two people tied together in love forever. Together they rise, together they soar, someday they may even fall. But, together. The way the bright red heart stands out against the pale back ground clearly tells that yes, love is the most important thing in the world. The way the guy has held the girl, the look in her eyes, him kissing her shoulder and together they are tightly bound by love. If I had seen this like a month or two ago, I probably would have cried. But today, I can only smile looking at it. Feels real good. Why I said above that this picture brings me a weird kind of satisfaction is that I know I have had more than my share of such moments. Probably much much better than this. Its a different thing that i

Getting Used to

2010 is going good. I know that I have changed. And in so many ways that I can't pen down. I've decided to stay oblivious to many things around and that's how it works the best for me. Call me selfish, foolish, naive or whatever but this is how I choose to be. They say that a person who is happy doesn't have all the facts. Oh well, I don't mind being that person. I may be postponing pain for later, but when that moment comes I'm sure I'll deal with it as I have dealt with everything else. Just figured out that monotony is good if you are used to it. Not that I lead a monotonous life, believe me, my life is anything but monotonous. 'Life is what happens to you, when you're busy making other plans'. This line has been coined keeping me in mind for sure. The twists and turns, ups and downs and most importantly the roundabouts my life takes can put the most complicated roller coaster ride in the world to shame. Not that I'm proud of it, but I

I've Learnt

I'm not being cynical, I'm just being practical; I don't want another saga, That could end in a debacle. Yes, I'm afraid, To try to love again; I've learnt to live with it, Learnt not to live in vain. I've learnt not to cry, Not to hope for the unreasonable; I've learnt to be strong and independent, I've learnt how to stay stable. Each blow that I bore, Has thought me a lot; I've learnt where to draw the line, And where to put a full stop. I've no regrets now, I've learnt to accept; I've learnt to block out memories, Even if I cannot forget. Currently I don't need anyone, It might only get messed up more; When people love me with all their heart, I too want to love them from my core. I need sometime, I want to feel the need to let go; I've no qualms being alone, Its only teaching me to grow. Now, I've learnt to love myself, Learnt to get bright from dim, The only thing I now have to learn, Is how to stop loving him.

Raavan

Its been a week since I saw this movie but I dint find the time to write about it. Rather I dint find words that would explain the terror this movie is. Okay that might have been a bit over exaggerated :P . Still the much hyped movie hardly lives up to it. Its been already declared a flop in trade circles. After the debacle called 'Kites', here comes another disappointment. A few pointers from the movie (Spoiler alert!). 1) Yes, this is loosely based on the Ramayana. But it doesn't even come close to the Mahabharat called 'Raajneeti'. 2) Story: Ram and co hurt Raavan's sister, so Raavan kidnaps Ram's better half to settle scores but since its a bollywood movie, he has to fall in love with her. She too develops a soft corner for her kidnapper but soon her husband comes and gets her. 3) The movie has been shot beautifully. Watch this movie for the cinematography by Santhosh Sivan. 4) Aishwarya looks breathtakingly beautiful. Even when she is tied to a pole

The Change

You know it feels really good when you wake up with a smile on your face. Its a clear indication that the night was good and free of nightmares. I fall asleep these days listening to hours of music. I wake up with the ear phones still plugged into my ear and sometimes my hair, with the wired mark across my face. My ipod's not a week old, yet it now has scratches in all possible places. So much for the love of music eh! But its a small price to pay when you have Enrique and Edward Maya singing you to sleep :-). Living in black and white was good. Atleast its a clear cut out life. But now, I feel that colours are not that bad. There needs to be a change to feel the difference. Well, I'm starting with my blog now, lets see how far this goes. Change is good, very good infact. - Wanna feel good? Change your wardrobe or go buy atleast 2 new pairs of shoes. - Feeling nerdy? Change the order of the books on the shelf (for the millionth time). - Feeling geeky? Change your antivirus o

Rewind

Today. 5 years ago, 11 something am. The weather was such that, it would make any stone hearted person go 'Ummmm..'. The sun shone subtly, the wind blew lightly and the heavy clouds stood to witness the day, but refused to pour. It was the perfect Forks setting. Probably Stephanie Mayer would have been inspired by this day, to get the setting of Forks. She walked towards him, with a bright smile on her face. Her heart pounding in her chest, she knew very well what was to happen. Still, the young mind always teases. She had played this day many times before in her head. The scenes were different each time, but starred the same people and it always ended the same way. Now, as she walked towards him, the 50 yards ahead of her seemed endless. She was just waiting to catch a glimpse of him. The wind whispered to her heart to slow down, but it refused. It kept thumping until finally her eyes rested on him. There he stood awaiting her, with a bunch of red roses in his hand, which

Black and White

There is always someone, Who makes you shed a tear; Then there is also the one, Who wipes it away and says don't fear. There is always someone, Who rejoices in your loss; Then there is also the one, Who holds your hand and leads you across. There is always someone, Who is happy that you are not; Then there is also the one, Who gives you the happiness pot. There is always someone, Who silently envies you; Then there is also the one, Whose appreciation is so true. There is always someone, Who can ruin your day; Then there is also the one, Who can make things come your way. There is always someone, Who constantly wants you to change; Then there is also the one, Who loves you and would not want you to derange. There is always someone, Who might walk away someday; Then there is also the one, Who stands by you forever, everyday. I've always maintained that life is black or white, nothing gray. Its true. Its also true that for every black there is an equally opposite white an

Blank

Its been more than a week now. I open the 'New Post' page on my blog and stare at it. I just cant figure out what to write. My mind is point blank. Weird for someone like me. I'm the one who has to eat something to not talk. But when I want to write something my mind is complete vacuum. Okay okay, not to be taken literally though :P. Boy, I think I was a better writer when I was a sad soul. Words came out easily and I could feel the words. But now a days I have to put my brain through a lot of exercise to get something to write about. Still I don't find anything. I have no idea what's going on. And did I just post two back to back reviews on movies?? Nooo... I'm losing my touch :-( I've not settled the differences in my life, but I kinda have settled in my differences. I'm content about the way things are and there are only happy thoughts in my mind. You know what, its rightly said that you need someone only when you're sad. Cos when you're do

Good and Better

No one, no book, no song or no other movie had made me 'want' to move on like this one did. '500 Days of Summer' is almost an unheard movie, with an unheard cast. But the story line is that of every single person in this planet. Okay, since I cannot vouch for the rest of the world I vouch for myself. I had stopped relating my life to any movie, any song or any book more than a year ago. Not that I felt it was bad, but that was enough to get me upset as I don't want to be reminded of a lot of things. I've learnt to block them out and move on. Its took me a long time for that and any tiny speck of familiarity I see or read is enough to send me into a whirlwind of nostalgia. So, I avoid that. But, after a long time I related my life to a movie and this time it had a positive effect on me. Wow, I seriously am improving :-) '500 Days of Summer', is a story about a boy called Tom and a girl called Summer. Tom thinks that Summer is 'The One' for him.

Poor Man's Godfather

First things first. Arjun Rampal and Ranbir Kapoor have never looked this stunning before. Rampal did look extremely sexy in the first half of 'Rock On', but he's a class act as the mature kurta clad politician in 'Raajneeti'. His acting is pretty good too. He's come a long way since his 'Pyar Ishq Mohabbat' and 'Deewanapan' days. He's done a neat job in this. Ranbir on the other hand is a replica of the Michael Corleone of my most favourite movie 'The Godfather' or the Shankar Nagre of 'Sarkar'. The quiet manipulating brother who plots in the background to help his brother rise to power. He has done a great job and looks splendid. His clothes, the charm he oozes and the peace on his face even when he's bombing someone is a pleasure to watch. But how someone pursuing a Ph.D in 'The underlying violence of Victorian Poetry' knows the A-Z of politics is quite mind boggling. Both he and Rampal look like real brothers

I Believe

Kept on wondering, When I'll be free; I wanted to live, I wanted the happiness key; Love and joy, Was always around; I failed to see, How could it be? The sun's shining bright, There will be no fright; There will be smiles, Through the day and the night; I am the change, I wanted to see; No one owns me, No he or she. Hurt, tears and pain, Its all comes in vain; They come in herds, I'm done with these words; When I feel like I've had enough, I feel like giving it all up; But my will is as strong as it can be, Now nothing can stop me; Deep in my heart, There is no doubt; When love comes again, I'll go reaching out. I will stand tall, And make myself proud; Now, I only see the silver linings, And not some damned cloud. Unhappy is not the way, That I want to leave; I'll get it all, In me, I believe.

Again

I tell you this, and I tell you plain: What you have done, you will do again; You will bite your tongue, careful or not, Upon the already-bitten spot. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960
