a Wednesday

This year couple of films like Aaamir, Mumbai Meri Jaan have been released based on terrorism, effects of a terrorist activity on a common man’s life and “a Wednesday” is one of them. As I am writing after couple of weeks “a Wednesday” released, I am not going to delve much into its execution, performances etc. Still considering “a Wednesday” has been directed by a first timer, its a polished product when it comes to execution, technical finesse. Apart from this what to say about performances. Naseeruddin Shah again shows that he is the only one when it comes being a character himself and audience feel like he is not acting at all.

Being Single is not Being Alone

Today, I was discussing “why does one marry” with one of my close friends. This discussion also reminded me of Nagesh Kukunoor’s film “Hyderabad Blues”. In the film, he plays a character called Varun. Varun o has returned from US and is puzzled by the lifestyle of people in India in contrast with his lifestyle in America. As Varun is ‘foreign returned’ and in accordance with our traditions, his parents are in a hurry to get Varun married.

Pre-Marital Sex!

Yesterday, two of my friends and me were having a discussion on how relationships in modern India are working and in general our view on institution of marriage and relationships. The discussion led to a point of “Pre-marital sex”. There’s a lot of buzz going on these days regarding this. Few months back actresses Khushaboo and Sushmita Sen expressed their views on Pre-marital sex and it created a lot of controversy.

Innovation always works

Earlier this morning, I was browsing through Wikipedia and just for curiosity sake typed in Hotmail and did a search. The website came up with all the details about the email system. Things like ‘how it came about, who was the inventor (it is, of course, our own Sabeer Bhatia). After parsing through the piece of information, what I realised was ‘If your product is innovative, it always works’.

When I came out of a theater watching IQBAL, immediately I wanted to congratulate IQBAL on getting selected in Indian cricket team. And there lies the success of the film.

Passion

Some days back I was just discussing with friend about liking something and being passionate about something. People always get confused with this. Or some people never know what they exactly like so that they can pursue that thing as a passion. Reading, music, movies are the most common things people like.

Ab Tak 56


“When we have information, we kill criminals. When we don’t have information, we kill time. Don’t be restless. Be patient.”

This is the dialogue from the RGV production and Shimit Amin directed “Ab Tak 56”. This is the only movie which takes a realistic look at the life of an encounter cop.
