KITES!!!! Flew high for me!

Watching Kites yesterday-first day first show was entertaining! People have no patience to watch a Film these days since there is a lot happening all around. So 'our' attention has lowered to a level where only a ‘half hour’ package works (it’s a vacuum in emotional depth created by television shows. Some old-school romantic movie emotions just don’t hit the audience of today!)

Anyway, Kites was no doubt a ‘sure’ love story! Smooth sailing shots, some sweet subtle moments (especially the hand shadows and the silence in that scene!), and scenic beauty!

Hrithik- Barbara, a handsome parcel, sizzled in every shot!

This love story had a good guy fighting for his love, a bad guy chasing him around to steal his love, a good guy from the bad guy gang who helps the good guy and his love to sneak away! There is a ‘guy meets girl’ and love at first sight feeling, betrayal, lust, love, shoot outs in dingy lanes, car chase sequences! In a nutshell… everything a BOLLYWOOD FILM always encompasses. The 90’s filmy love stories were loved though they had loud dance numbers and bright off-fashion clothes.

Kites- A bollywood combo-pack almost like the new age ‘QSQT, MPK’… We all had loved those that time!! This time it’s with a dash of action n thrill!!!

NOT BAD- KITES!!!! Flew high for me!

Let there be hope,

But not pride.

Let there be belief,

But no blind faith!

Let thou be powerful,

But show humanity!

Let thou be confident,

But be humble.

Let there be love,

And show pure positivity.

Let there be motivation,

Along with honesty.

Let thou be focused,

But not casual.

Let thou set dreams,

And have authenticity to achieve.

Let thou be happy,

But no trouble inside.

Let thou have strength,

But not vanity to flaunt.

Let there be miracles,

Which only thou can create.

Let there be thirst for knowledge,

But no hunger to preach.

Let thou be good,

But not greedy towards goodness.

Let thou listen to the heart,

And follow its path.

Let there be a will,

And the way will appear.

Let there be no expectations,

And surprises will follow.

RE...Bound to Happen!!!! Dilsa koi kameena nahi...

Chill out, what you yellin' for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if, you could only let it be
You will see

I like, you the way you are
When we're drivin' in your car
And you're, talkin' to me one on one
But you become

Somebody else
'Round everyone else
Your watchin' your back
Like you can't relax
You tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're actin' like you're somebody else
Gets me frustrated
Life's like this you
You fall and you crawl and you break
And you take what you get, and you turn it into
Honestly, you promised me
I'm never gonna find you fake it
No no no

Aisi ulji nazar unse hatt ti nahi
Daant se reshmi dor katt ti nahi
Umar kab ki baras ke safaid ho gayi
Kaari badari jawani ki chatt ti nahi
Walla ye dhadkan bhadne lagi hai
Chehre ki rangat udne lagi hai
Darr lagta hai tanha sone mein ji
Dil to bachcha hai ji
Dil to bachcha hai ji
Thoda kaccha hai ji
Haan dil to baccha hai ji

Dilsa koi kameena nahi
Koi to rokey, koi to tokey
Iss umar mein ab khaogey dhokhe
Darr lagta hai ishq karne mein ji
Dil to bachcha hai ji
Dil to bachcha hai ji
Thoda kaccha hai ji
Haan dil to baccha hai ji

Goodbye to you my trusted friend
We've known each other since we were nine or ten
Together we've climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and ABC's
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees
We had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed were just seasons out of time
We had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song like the seasons have all gone

I know I stand in line
Until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance
I know that there's a chance
You won't be leaving with me

Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you

Petty issues...this blah blah world!!! SHUT THE %$#@ UP!!!!

We all have been watching a Hilarious show for a while called: - ‘I’m a Politician- And I will blabber!’

A show which receives maximum TRPs, comments and fan followings! It’s a show which will give superstars and businessmen a run for their money! (Literally!)

I know... there is no such show. But the news channels all around are making their bucks on the name of politicians and not entertainment for a change! (Something which they should be doing otherwise)

But the issues these politicians are arguing on are just appalling! Sometimes we wonder what we are governed by! Is this really happening????

When (my superstar) Shahrukh Khan made a comment about his cricket team and the Pakistani players, the politicians were agitated! And now, all we see is a Mess! A Laugh riot for the educated class; who comes home from work switches on a news channel (hoping to get some intelligent view point on serious issues) and witnesses a foul play of political heads blabbering/ fighting/ pointing fingers at one another!

GOD… is this our country?

A so called Marathi Manoos will have his view about how wrong everyone is and how the point actually lies in why Marathi is not being given importance!!!! A non-mumbai-ite will be ANGRY because his so called INDIANness is being questioned!!! A Producer is worried about his film release and still wonders why that has been targeted!!!

And the racket in our head continues….

The good thing is that I too have a medium to express my thoughts/views… so I typed a comment on a social networking site and received a thousand odd responses!!! It was a good way to get to know what we actually feel/think about the current scenario, also realizing, if ‘we’ can divert from one topic to another in no time… WHY blame anyone else!!!!

So here it goes… My status message was:- SRK, DON’T APOLOGIZE! WE ARE WITH YOU!


Friend1:- Ohh that means, You think Pakistani Players should play here...?

Me:- !!!!!!!
I AM AN SRK FAN...n i want to watch the film!!!!!!!!

Friend2:- ohhh...the film u can watch on any channel...

Friend1:- Now a Days, films are released on channels and DVDs in just 2 months!

Me:- HUHHHH....piracyyy??? a complete no!!!

Friend2:- That's the point... Media has created a whirlpool of thoughts so that the people get influenced! A theatre today has a dozen policemen, 3 rows reserved, 1 Dozen police? Minimum 3 videographers?
This is Nonsense....
aani evadh karun, film baghayala jaeel, tyala dagad laganar to vegalach...

Me:- we owe somethin to every film... WE cant be casual about... DVD/channel var yeil!!!! lets be clear...change our attitude..its a lot of energy, creativity,money,business involved fr a Friday release!!
lets not think like THEM!

Friend 2:- I don't have any attitude...
But this is a Fact...
In my nearest Theatre, Marathi films timings are 3:30pm..
How many people are going to watch on working day @ 3:30pm ? aani aapan nachato, ki Marathila chanagale divas aal... Marathi cinema multyplex madhye lagala?
Last week, I saw " Natarang " (twice) on both the tickets, It was mentioned TAX FREE...

at 3:30 pm ticket was Rs 79/- & @ Night, Ticket was Rs 117/- WHY ?
This make attitude to watch the film at Home...

Me:- Lets not get into petty issues like language and caste!!! the fact remains...we need to grow up!

Friend3:-ok, forget about the petty issues...
I watch films in Theaters (when It runs @ a suitable time)
Otherwise I have to watch the film on DVD...

Me:- and as far as the marathi film screenings in multiplexes are concerned!!! we r gettin thr... i saw Natrang at PVR- 8:30pm show @ Rs 175/- .... its about how many of us are actually gonna pay 'money' to watch a film... its easier fr our ppl to think... arrre TV var baghu!!!
then how is anything going to progress!!!!

Friend2:- " TV var baghu " attitude comes from Middle Class Marathi Manus.., who can't spend Rs. 175 /-

Me:- oh really...but he does spend 175/- fr a hindi film!!!!!!!

Friend:- not even a Middle Class Marathi man...
His attitude will be same for hindi also... " TV var baghu "

Me:- ....i think its more about... Marathi film theatre madhe jaun ka baghaichi!!!so the problem lies in that comman's mind! and films r made fr them...
anyway.. The point is will i get to watch My name is Khan...!!!!!!!!!!!(appeal frm a true SRK fan)

This continued for a while… and I realized!!! What are we arguing about!!! Again… these were petty issues! We were back to talking about languages/caste/creed… How will India ever progress! We definitely need to change our attitude!!!

Unless we become ‘ONE’ this change won’t happen!!!

And the thought scared me…

Because… I know ‘That’ may just never happen!!!!
