Rang De Basmati

Went Ding Dong watching King Kong. The chronicles of Narnia took me back to my childhood. I am the youngest among four siblings of 2 boys and 2 girls. Just as it was in the movie, we used to play hide and seek when power went off and I used to hide in wardrobes. Watch it. Now, we are grown up and I guess, boring.

Watched Zinda too and I say in just one line, "Zinda Murdabaad!!" We will definitely win an oscar someday, for 'the best doctored movie'. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery? Not always. It is just what it is, an imitation. Let us do what we are good at doing, run around trees and not try to get serious with stolen concepts.

Some of the scenes were too violent. Apaharan had two very violent scenes though it was a real good movie and Zinda had one. I closed my eyes during these scenes.

Watched "Kalyug" too and I don't know how it is a hit. Ok, when we can put our politicians to power what is a movie? (I am talking like one of those pseudo-intellectuals who act as if the country's progress is on their minds and do nothing but point their fingers at the politicians. It is so easy to ape these people than to be a politician.)

The point is I haven't yet watched RDB, Rang De Basmati or whatever and now; I am going to act as if I am not interested. Like they say, "If you try once and fail, remove all evidences that you tried." So I never tried for the tickets for RDB and I heard it is a bad movie (even though very few people have this opinion) and I am not interested in watching it.

At work, I AM VERY VERY BUSY, pressing f5 to refresh the cricket score and voting, voting for a chair out of 9 chairs on display and voting out a bank for salary accounts. That's where my veto power ends. Work is Worship!!!!

Last but not least, my well tended middle finger (it has even got 2 moles) at the person who has been faking ids and commenting on my blog. Eff Off!!!

// "I heard it is a bad movie"
Thank gawd someone thinks so! Pls. give them my respect ;-)

Actually did not watch it but had a 2 hour long discussion with a few who watched it! 1st half of it just shows typical (and crappy) college life. Oh and later they are killing politicians - patriotism kaha se hua yeh? :O
I have a somewhat different version of it.

as far as RDB goes, you can try now for the tickets at PVR. They should be available and if you need some company i'll happy to come along with the tickets.

Anat said...

Hiiiiiiiii Arunima!
RDB is a good movie after all, although it was a bit too dramatic..

and u know what, i am joining salsa classes soon, i was reminded of one of ur very very earlier posts which said that software engineers were born bred and brought up to be software engineers, i know its gonna be a huge disaster, but i just might turn that quote around!

Amit Goel said...

and yes tell that anonymous person to read between the fingers...

Rk said...

It is so easy to ape these people than to be a politician. This was best:
At work, I AM VERY VERY BUSY, pressing f5 to refresh the cricket score
Lastly, go watch RDB. Its really fun.

Linda said...

Go watch 'Rang De Basanti'...
You cant miss this movie.
If you can watch 'Zinda' than you cant miss 'Rang De Basanti'.

Thanks for dropping by and for the lovely words on my blog :). And please watch Rang De Basanti and make up your own mind about it. Intellectual opinions are varied but it's definitely worth a watch!
