Did not take prior appointment to meet Parineeta. Heard a lot about her classic beauty and elegance and wanted to witness it with my solemn black no, brownish eyes. She had too many guests to entertain. We were shooed away at the last moment after standing by her door step heart beating fast. The moment our turn came, the monitor read, "Sold out".
Then decided to solve the riddle called
Paheli but got entangled in a maze of puzzle. I have done enough justice to it by linking to one of the best reviews. This is one of those movies which pleases the senses visually. However, I would have loved to watch an Amol Palekar starrer instead.
I can only say the alluring Rajasthan vistas, the costumes were impressive. There were a lot of yellows and reds. Felt like adding my red by throwing some tomatoes. The only saving grace of this riddle was the music. MM Kreem leaves a sinewy impression that given a chance, he can deliver the goods. “Dheere Jalna” seduces the senses with its subtle sensuality. Rajpal Yadav left the audience laughing in his cameo. The movie will be good for promoting tourism. I would like to add my tag line, Paheli- If you can’t convince, confuse.
I had to console myself by going shopping and indulging in retail therapy and by watching another movie the next day. The best way to spend hard earned money is shopping. What say girls?
After reading the reviews from TOI many people lined up for Paheli. Felt like telling it was bad to those people even to that lady with deep blouse and shining tattoo at the back, the colour of her blouse . (shining tattoo to go for a movie! ROTFLMAO)
Again missed Parineeta (Don’t suggest online booking) So went to Symphony to meet the deadly couple, Mr.and Mrs.Smith. By then, I didn’t bother about the storyline or anything anymore and just enjoyed. Bradenlina was good. Angelina pouted well. About Bradd Pitt, need I say more?
A melancholic unsung melody reverberates on my mind after watching these two flicks.
“ Mein loot gayi, mein barbaad hogayi”
