Now let me try and make some sense here....
Why you should watch this movie?
two reasons ... ...
1)the song yeh housla
2) Shreyas Talpade
both WOW! material..

Shreyas Talpade.... knows how to deliver his lines.
his ....voh jee, bahut hee vichaar-sheel oonth hai... thodi uljhan mein hai
and the.... mein actor chahein jaisa bhi hun..par mein naachna janta hun...
are just two of those numerous times in the movie where he works his ... mmh.. err...thing(!?)
Oh... it is such a delight to watch him on screen..(in almost every frame/scene he is in)
Song: yeh housla...
Lyrics: Mir Ali Hussain
Vocals: Shafqat Amanat Ali
Salim merchant

"the whole purpose of places like star bucks is for people with no decision making ability what-so-ever to make 6 decisions, just to buy a single cup of coffee..
tall-short,light-dark,cafe-decafe,sugar-no sugar, low fat-non fat, etc....
So, people who dont know what the hell they are doing and who on earth they are, can for only $2.95 get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self"


Tom Hanks to Meg Ryan....... You've Got Mail

Friday, December 15, 2006


One of those 24hr news channels aired a little story about a woman the other day.
She is somewhere between 70-80 years old(I dont remember exactly).
She lives in a small village in Andhra Pradesh. Her husband, the only bread-earner in the family, died early leaving her to fend for her only child and run the house.
She braved all, raised her kid and gotten him married.
What she and the family was left with, was a single acre of land.He sold it all.
One fine day... he tells her that she is no mother of his and proclaims to not acknowledge their realtionship and asks her to get out of the house.
She asks him, 'but what will I do and where will I go son, look at my age".
He suggests that she could always pick up a stick, a bowl and go begging.
She did start begging... doing the rounds of her very own village and surviving on what she managed to find.
He comes to her one day and tells her that he cannot bear the shame of his mother begging in the same village as he resides.
He asks(?) her to leave the village and go away.

hmm... now this wasn't the first time I've heard of such a thing. Infact I have witnessed such things from very close quarters. So, in a way my reaction has, over the years... diluted(?).
I know it takes every kind, to make this world the place it is.
I just think....
how does he sleep at night?

p.s:did I mention that he is alcoholic.... that helps I guess.

this and that

I think, Tom Hanks will be remembered for the movies he has starred in and Johnny Depp for the characters he has played.
I adore this guy called Rehman... he is simply too good, I reiterate.
I found out what a gentle, funny and witty guy, Courtney Walsh is.(an NDTV show)
I used watch in disbelief when Courtney and Curtley used to bowl from both ends..
I was just then starting to watch cricket..and these two looked unreal to me.
I can watch anything that is remotely related to space.
I used to hate to leave a book unfinished... how much ever boring it might be.
I now wonder, why I took all the trouble..
I seemed to have lost all (if any) sense of grammar and language that I might have possessed..
I am reading a Salman Rushdie currently...
I am watching many of my friends recover and become their own previous selves... you see, half the female population is sick on hearing the news(or is it rumour?)of Abhishek and Ash's wedding.
I believe that dance is divine..
I dont want Angelina Jolie to play Dagny.
I think coalition-governments should be banned.
I dont, however think that it is possible to do so... there are enough signs that this trend shall continue....absolute majority it seems, is a thing of past..
I put a single song on toggle repeat and have been listening to it since the past 50 minutes..
I don't sometimes listen to the song that my winamp is playing..
I don't however turn it off.
I really dont know how to react to the news that SRK will from now on, host KBC.
I sometimes wonder where Saif would be now,had there been no Dil Chahta Hai.
I seem to like people with Hugh as their first names..a coincidence ofcourse....
I will see Magnolia now....
