Warning: This is a blog that lacks intellectuality. My levels of IQ stand as lofty as that of Paris Hilton's pet pomeranian and my knowledge of current affairs is as deep as Mandira Bedi's of cricket. I mostly ramble about the trivialities of my everyday life, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, friends n family, movies, cricket; basically thoughts that would enter the mind of any Sita, Gita or Rita.

Note: I was busy drooling over the pages of Playboy during my English classes in school. So please bare with any grammatical blunders or the obvious lack of classic literary writing. (I was a little confused between the selection of 'bear' and 'bare' in the sentence above so I resorted to my favorite inky-pinky-ponky routine)

If you happen to pass by, feel free to register your presence. coz yeh duniya bahot chhoti hai aur yeh zindagi bahot lambi. Kya pata, someday somewhere, you and I might end up discussing about it over a cup of garam garam masala tea.

S(h)ame s(h)ame and diffelent

Beguiled. Cozened. Deceived. Completely mislead by a new kid on the block. Yesterday, I brought a dvd of the movie Bombay to Bangkok. It said that it was written and directed by our beloved Nagesh Kukunoor. But its not. It seems someone has adopted his name and come up with this movie. There is a song in the movie - same same but different. Maybe that was an indication suggesting that they have the same names but its not the same person. Even Shreyas Talpade got fooled to act in the movie and, unfortunately, even complete it.

*Calm voices inside the head addressing the world*
Voices 1 - .. : There is nothing like that. Its the same Nagesh Kukunoor. Its just that this dude is in a state of stupor after last night.

Okay I heard that.. But I don't understand. Here is a guy who made Hyderabad Blues, Rockford, 3 Deewarein, Iqbal, Dor. It is hard to believe it is the same Nagesh. Maybe he did not want to make this movie. Yeah, someone must have forced him to make it at gunpoint. No, at tank-point or missile-point. Coz just a gun would not have taken Nagesh to such an extreme. Its a totally forgettable experience. I have to say Nagesh, you have your word cut out with your next ventures Aashayein(it might not be easy making John act; go watch Goal if you feel otherwise) and Tasveer. Your 3 Deewarein was loosely inspired from The Shawsank Redemption(a true classic). Lets see how you redeem yourself. Shame on you this time though. I pray the next ones are nowhere near same same to this one.

P.S: One could argue that attempting to see the movie was a big mistake in the first place. But I read reviews only after watching a movie. I like to form my own opinion when it comes to movies.
