She has found a home

Brinda and Divya were disowned by their respective parents and left in the orphanage around the same time. They grew up together as playmates and friends. Divya found a family when they were a little above two (I had posted about her).

Among all the kids in the orphanage somehow, Brinda had touched me the most. This child was almost 3 and her eyes were lonely. I still remember her hesitant steps and how it took time to break the ice with her. At last, she had hugged me and gave a hearty laugh but that laugh had no sound.

Nishita (friend’s niece) and Ankita (my niece) are in the same age group of Brinda and they are very naughty. They scream, sing and shout over the phone and make us all dance to their tunes. They are so exuberant and keep bouncing around gaily so unlike Brinda. I wished Brinda would find that sense of security in a home, the love of a family and add music to that silent laughter.

Brinda has been adopted. She has left for the States. yeah!!!!! Now, Aryamaan and Neela has also been adopted. The number of children in the children's home has also reduced. Glad to know it.

I salute the ayas there who has been caring for the kids as their own. It takes much more than love to do it.

Watched Kyon Ki. It is a shitty movie and not even worth a pirated CD. Should be watched while channel surfing. Personally, I would prefer watching the commercials.
Seems it is copied from a 20 yr old Malayalam movie.

I could see parts of it being stolen from the Waheeda Rehman starrer, Khamoshi. (It is one of my favourite movies with lovely songs). It is not even one percent as good as Khamoshi.
Assholes! they can't even copy it properly. Can’t believe it is Priyadarshan’s movie.

Nice to know about Brinda!
I really hope your wishes for her come true!

By the way, the title Kyun Ki reminded me of some soap and I immedisately felt nauseated... so I didn't even dare watch it. You brave soul!

Hurray! Mine was the first comment!

ITs good to know tht brida is adopted and hope her sense of security comes back to life..

infinity said...

good for brinda...abt 'kyun ki' i heard its a mixture of 'one flew over the cuckoo's nest' and 'khamoshi'...i cudn't even attempt to watch this travesty of all that is sacred in the world of cinema...with a cast like 'kyun ki' no director can be right...

n.g. said...

priyan has lost it. kyun ki was crap. garam masala is vomit. cant digest this rubbish from the same guy who gave us hera pheri.

Its almost a yaer he wrote this but it still is as unique as it was when i read it first. You gotta read this one --> http://dcubed.blogspot.com/2004/11/why-shes-here.html

yes most of the present-day hindi ones are cheap! wanna get into bashing them mail me- I got some good stuff on that ;)

I admire people who can adopt and love like their own. Wish there were many more like them.

Making the adoption process easier and quicker would certainly help. Do you know there's a 2 year wait-time in most cases?

Parna said...

people who adopt definitely have a Huge heart. it takes a lot to adopt a child and make her/him your own.

thanks for the warning on Kyon Ki. watched Salaam Namaste. wonder why they had to set it up in Ozzy land if they were trying to put up something 'hatke'. if u have the balls, do it in the indian scenario and then claim 'hatke'

Jas said...

Hey!!!!! Good for Brinda!!! About Kyun Ki....heard it was a remake of Priyadarshan's Malyalam movie in which Mohanlal had acted very well and also that Salmaan goes no where close to Mohanlal.

anthony said...

Hemanshu said...

Glad that the kids found a home...Haven't watched Kyun Ki and after your review, don't think i want to anymore. :)
Cheers!

Arunima said...

@sinusoidally: No, I don't work there. I visit them.

manuscrypts said...

the malayalam original is a classic... priyadarshan's recent movies in mal have also been nowhere near his earlier hits...

pallavi said...

Glad to know about the kids.
Is the movie something like Tere Naam... ??

Khushee said...

Kyon Ki doesn't even look all that good in the commercials. I don't think I'll watch it.

Shikha said...

Garam masala is also a malayalam movie remake,even older than the kyun ki original..this one also starred mohanlal and was a huge hit..'thaalavattom'(kyon ki malayalam version)is one of the best loved malayalam movies..mohanlal's performance being one of the reasons

kannan udayarajan said...

First Some info:

Garam Masala is the reamake of Boeing Boeing(1986) a malayalam movie starring MohanLal and Mukesh...it was a huge hit and ran for years.Priyadarshan made this movie based on the Hollywood picture of the same name 'Boeing Boeing' made in 1965.

The same story was lifted by a northie playwright who made a English play called 'Plane crazy about Love'.This guy has sued Priyan for lifting his "original" story.

As far Kyun Ki is considered it is the remake of 'Thalavattom"(1989) again a Priyan Movie which he made based on the Hollywood Flick 'One who flew over the cuckoo's nest'

Priyadarshan had acknowledged the original sources of the stories when the malayalam movies were released.Both of them were huge hits and both had Mohan Lal and Mukesh,the top malayalam stars of the day.Both the malayalam versions were remade to perfection and tailor made to the Kerala Backdrop.Priyans craft was perfect.

Hera Pheri is again the remake of a malayalam movie "Ramji Rao speaking " starring Mukesh directed by Siddique Lal.

HulChul is also the remake of another Mukesh starrer "Godfather " made by Siddique Lal again.

"Phir Hera Pheri " is the remake of the 2nd part of Ramji Rao speaking called "Mannar Mathai Speaking" again a Mukesh starrer.

;)

cheers...

Handa said...

i heard tht kyunki was a copy of "one flew over the cuckoo's nest".. i was excited. then i heard that it has SALMAN KHAN and KAREENA KAPOOR in the lead. do i need to say how i felt then?

Mr. Maverick said...
