Life is to be taken lightly, not frivolously.

It's a fine line.


Sometimes giving up hope is far more difficult than keeping it alive.

The day ends later...

With the clock back by an hour in the West, things have gotten worse.

Maybe India should adopt DST !!!

Why is sharing feelings considered a sign of weakness?

Does bottling up your feelings make you a stronger person?

Or simply unhappier?

Review of "Fashion"

Let me keep it short and sweet.

It is a ok kind of movie. I would give it 2.5 stars, maybe 3.

It was disappointing, because I had high expectations from a Madhur Bhandarkar movie. It's sad to see that he has failed to make anything even close to "Page 3". He is the Arthur Hailey of Bollywood, as his movies usually centre around an industry and introduces the audience to the inner and ugly details which is not so obvious to the outer world. Unfortunately, "Fashion" had nothing new to offer which we do not know about.

Priyanka is ok, not bad but had not really done any soul stirring scenes. Mugdha Godse is decent too, much better than I had expected. Thankfully, she does not give wooden expressions typical of most models who act for the first time.

The one and only saving grace of the movie is Kangana Ranaut. She rocks. She comes across as a natural in her role, as the show stopper model in the ramp walks in the movie. She shows loads of attitude typical of someone at the top in the modelling world. Also, the way she plays her addiction to drugs and her subsequent downfall in the industry is really admirable. She certainly takes away the cake with her brief but powerful appearances in the movie. Frankly, I never really thought of her much in the past, my perception of her has changed after the movie. With the right kind of non-stereotype roles, I think she can go places.

So if you like Kangana Ranaut, this movie is worth going to. You can give it a miss otherwise.

And with this, my wait for a good Hindi movie continues...

The weekend limbo

This is one of the weekends where I did not have enough to do, or so it seemed, till yesterday.

That meant there was plenty of time to laze around and do nothing important in life. The problem with a weekend like this is that you start feeling guilty about having nothing to do, and try to dig up things have not got done due to lack of time in the past.

I have been thinking about my long weekend to do list since yesterday and trying to decide what to pick up from those.

Today morning while I was still sleeping, I got two calls which even to my sleep drugged mind, brought a sense of relief. A friend called me up for lunch at her place and another one wanted to check with me if I would be game for a movie on Sunday evening. I already had plans to go running on Sunday morning. So just like that, my Sunday was suddenly packed with activities and now looks a little hectic for a Sunday. But I am not complaining, always game for anything fun :))

That also means now I can enjoy a really really lazy Sat without any feeling of guilt :)). Tomorrow is a busy day and I do deserve one day to chill out, don't I?

Let the limbo continue......
