New York

This is one movie I failed to catch in the theatre... thankfully and watched it on CD... unfortunately.
The idea of Katrina and John as leads in a flick was unappetising... both cannot act... both are sex symbols... both have made it 'coz of their looks...
It is crap... 1st half is good... 2nd half sucks... What was Karan Johar thinking? How can such a serious topic be taken so lightly? I mean... WTF!!! And John cannot act... he just can't... he uses one expression throughout... he could make a wood cry in frustration... and whats with Katrina's character??? Her hubby is a terrorist and she is ok with it??????????
And people appreciated it? People... whats wrong with you? How could you like it????

I liked Kaminey- am I weird?

There have been negative reviews of Kaminey floating around on Fb... that it is over-hyped... ok ok hai. I liked the movie... it does drag a little towards the end... but rest is entertaining. It is different... creative... me like it... Everyone has praised Priyanka's acting and conveniently ignored Shaahid. I liked Shaahid... he has done justice to the role. He is a good actor... better than most newcomers.
People.... do watch it.
If there is any over hyped movie it is Love Aaj Kal... Kaminey is so much better.

Chota sa note

I had a weird dream last night/today morning. Sigh!!! I wish I didn't dream such things but everything in life needs a closure. What to do? What to do? I keep thinking. Should I? Should I not? I guess not... I'd rather suffer and be curious than seek answers and put my mind to rest. Sometimes we are better off not knowing. Sometimes a lie or half truth or unconfirmed truth is preferable to the whole truth.
Sigh!!! Exhausted... good night.

I miss you when you're gone

Hold onto love that is what I do now that I've found you.
And from above everything's stinking, they're not around you.

And in the night, I could be helpless,
I could be lonely, sleeping without you.

And in the day, everything's complex,
There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you.

But I'll miss you when you're gone, that is what I do. Hey, baby!
And it's going to carry on, that is what I do. Hey, baby...

Hold onto my hands, I feel I'm sinking, sinking without you.
And to my mind, everything's stinking, stinking without you.

And in the night, I could be helpless,
I could be lonely, sleeping without you.

And in the day, everything's complex,
There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you.

But I'll miss you when you're gone, that is what I do. Hey, baby!
And it's going to carry on, that is what I do. hey, baby...

Jhakaas weekend

Hiya folks.... The weekend is over and I can feel Monday blues creeping on me. KC and I went for a drive on Bandra-Worli sea link... finally!!! We went for dinner to 'China Gate' in Bandra. It is a good restaurant which serves authentic Chinese food. My ex-colleagues had given me a Farewell there and I had spotted Leslie Lewis. 2 weeks back I came across Tabu at the airport. In all I have seen 5 celebrities- Emraan Hashmi, Nikhil Chinappa and Achint Kaur. Sigh!!! It is not good enough.
My driving has gotten better... now I have started abusing other drivers and using horrible profanities also which is quite an improvement within 2 weeks. I need a driver soon else I my bad language will deteriorate further. Don't worry--- I abuse with my windows rolled up... nobody can hear me.
I spent the weekend buying furniture and organizing stuff in it. It is such a relief... all my footwear is organized neatly on the shoe rack. There are 13 pairs in all... and yet they are not enough... I need more footwear.
The clothes are washed... I need to dry them. Good night!!!

Happy Independence Day!!!

I don't care about this day anymore... I just care about the holiday. Today is house work day and tomorrow is relaxation day. Perfect!!!
I am watching Swades... it is a beautiful movie.. better than those rubbish patriotic movies... so realistic and SRK has not over-acted (another miracle!!!). I had it for the first time on a cruise from Singapore. It was screened at 11 pm in the auditorium and I could feel the ship picking up speed and rocking to and fro.
It is amazing how little things can bring back memories so clearly and transport us back to those moments.
Yenjoy the weekend!!!

And you really do have worth

I roll up my windows while driving to avoid people's abuses from nearby cars. It does not stop people from abusing... I just can't hear them. Mumbai's traffic is weird:
  • Traffic policemen might fine you without any reason... you cannot argue especially if you are not Marathi. Just pay up and leave with your license intact
  • People cross the road when the traffic light turns green for the cars to move
  • People walk on/near the road... never on the footpath... they believe they own the streets and not even a car can succeed in getting them off

Soon.. I will drive with the windows rolled down... so I can abuse the other drivers.

Today I got thinking; "Where is life heading???"... I know... I know... there is lots happening... lots more to be done... but strategically... where is it heading? Is this it? Get a job... get married... have kids... grow old... and die??? Is that all? I wanted my life to be exciting, adventurous... anything but ordinary.

Archana had tagged me on a note on FB... here it is... I don't know who has written it:

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul...

And you learn that love doesnt mean leaning and company doesnt mean security

And you begin to learn that kisses arent contracts,

And presents arent promises,

And you begin to accept defeats with your head up and eyes open....

With the grace of an adult not the grief of a child...

And you learn to build your roads for today...

Because tomorrow's grounds are too uncertain for plans

After a while you learn that...even sunshine burns if you get too much

So plan your own garden,

And decorate your own soul...

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers...

And you learn...

That you really can endure...

That you really are strong...

And you really do have worth!!!

Flu... shu...

Hiya... Swine flu is upon us and it is kinda scary. I saw people wearing masks in the Mall. KC and I have been arguing about wearing masks. I refuse to wear it... 'coz I don't think they are very effective. Swine Flu is highly contagious and masks cannot ensure 100% safety.

I am reading 'Twilight' and it is taking me twice as long to finish 'coz of the lack of time.

Thankfully I have been shifted to a new profile where I will be interacting with educated people. Work life will mostly be spent in Malls which is a boon for a Shopholic (Me).I can shop while at work... :). Of course, delivering sales numbers will be that much more difficult 'coz there is very little control I have over them.

It is heart-breaking to see things I have bought earlier on sale. My mind keeps calculating the money I could have saved. A lot of my favorite books are on sale at Crossword.... sigh...

Love Aaj Kal

I have read good as well as bad reviews of this one and decided to judge it for myself. I was too tired last night to look for people to watch it with and headed alone to the Mall. I walked out within 20 mins... not kidding.
The break up scene really got to me... Saif looks in his late 30s and no make up can reduce his age... how can a 35-40 year old man be so confused??? Really!!! I mean... "What the fuck!!!"
Deepika looks pretty... but she canfanot act... She is such a Bimbo and thats kinda sad 'coz I had higher expectations from her. The scene was undigestible. I mean... this couple had been dating for over a year and they had not discussed marriage???? Hello???
I am deeply disappointed.


I watched this movie a little late... and loved it. It is a mix of 'Dude, where's my car?' and 'The road trip'... hilarious.
Don't miss it...

Missed ya

Missed ya people... loads and loads. I am so so so so sorry for leaving like this... but I didn't have access to the net. I have been writing posts in my head and craving to put them here.
Life is ok... KC is moving to North Karnataka. It is my worst nightmare come true. We have dreaded this moment so much we were afraid to even mention it. Sigh!!! He asked me the other day; "Why is this happening to us?" I said; "'Coz yeh zamana pyaar ka dushman hai".
Quite LS (low society)!!!

I don't believe in marriage (even though I am married). Who needs a piece for paper and some ceremonies to validate a relationship???? I don't. I would have stayed with KC all my life without marriage... but society needs the validation.

Anyway... this post is dedicated to my sweetheart.... he is not my obssession or addiction... he is much more... he is my life... he is in my every thought... every breath... every worry... every laughter... every tear...

Getting back to real life:
  • New job is okey dokey... the pressure has not yet begun
  • I drove 4.5 hours to and fro to meet Abhinav for 20 mins 2 days back.... totally worth it... Miss Dhruv and Abhinav... times spent with them in Corbett and Bangkok are the funnest times I've had
  • RT and Vijay complained about the lack of posts here.... thanks people... you guys keep my blog alive
  • I cook every night... no matter how late or how tired I am
  • Sleepy.... I will post more... much more tomorrow.. watch this space
Muah... people!!!
