Pune rain, causing pain

1 Comment

Its really frustrating. And its getting from bad to worst.
Its been raining since a week now.
Each day I’ve to return home all wet.
This monsoon is turning out to be the most frustrating one.
 
Since last two days, its raining like hell in Amravati & Nagpur too. And people there are happy and telling stories of the rain !!
And here i’ve almost forgot the colour of the Sun!
And this Ganesh Chaturthi crowd is creating more mess than ever..
And roads…. ?? Man, ‘tyanchi tar waat lagli aahe".
I was about to meet with an accident yesterday because of the potholes.

Here is the thery of Pune roads..

  • Between any two potholes there is always a road
  • If matters get worse, one pothole is always smaller than the other.
  • Never follow a car when you drive, follow just one tyre of the car
  • The depth of a pothole is inversely proportional to its visibility.
  • The probability of a passing by lorry splashing mud on you is directly proportional to the importance of the occasion you are dressed up for.
  • No matter what you wear you will get wet.
  • No matter what you do, you cannot avoid a pothole, avoiding one will lead you into the other

    Also visit Harry Potter’s official website.. Its amazing.

    Here are a few reasons why guys like girls:

    1. They will always smell good even if its just shampoo

    2. The way their heads always find the right spot on our shoulder

    3. How cute they look when they sleep

    4. The ease in which they fit into our arms

    5. The way they kiss you and all of a sudden everything is right in the world

    6. How cute they are when they eat

    7. The way they take hours to get dressed but in the end it makes it all worth while

    8. Because they are always warm even when its minus 30 outside

    9. The way they look good no matter what they wear

    10. The way they fish for compliments even though you both know that you think she’s the most beautiful thing on this earth

    11. How cute they are when they argue

    12. The way her hand always finds yours

    13. The way they smile

    14. The way you feel when you see their name on the call ID after you just had a big fight

    15. The way she says "lets not fight anymore" even though you know that an hour later….

    16. The way they kiss when you do something nice for them

    17. The way they kiss you when you say "I love you"

    18. Actually … just the way they kiss you…

    19. The way they fall into your arms when they cry

    20. Then the way they apologize for crying over something that silly

    21. The way they hit you and expect it to hurt

    22. Then the way they apologize when it does hurt.
    (even though we don’t admit it)!

    23. The way they say "I miss you"

    24. The way you miss them

    25. The way their tears make you want to change the world so that it doesn’t hurt her anymore…..
    Yet regardless if you love them, hate them,
    wish they would die
    or
    know that you would die
    without them …
    it matters not.
    Because once in your life, whatever they were to the world
    they become everything to you.
    When you look them in the eyes, traveling to the depths of their souls and you say a million things without trace of a sound,
    you know that your own life is inevitable consumed within the rhythmic beatings of her very heart.
    We love them for a million reasons,
    No paper would do it justice.

    It is a thing not of the mind but of the heart.
    A feeling..
    Only felt.

    Indian cinema is really coming out of age.

    And this year is witnessing an emergence of fresh and creative ideas, better packaging, aggressive marketing and yes.. better entertainment.

    Gone are the days when corrupt politician would rape hero’s sister and kill his father in first half and then hero would took the revenge in second half.

    Now we have, what they say.. “Feel good movies”. These movies will make you smile, make you sing, make you cry but when you leave the theater or should I say multiplex, you feel good.

    Here is the latest offering from the same genre..
    Salaam Namaste.

    They say movies are the reflection of our society. In 80’s our hero would fight for the mill workers and our heroines would die for their ‘Suhaag’.

    Things have changed now.

    Meet Nick (Saif ali khan) who is a chef in an Indian restaurant and ‘Ambar’ (Preity zinta) who is a radio jockey for the station ‘Salaam Namaste’.

    They love each other but not sure about the future. Not sure if they would get married. Not sure if they would have kids. And by the time they make their mind, they decide to live together.

    Is this a reflection of our society ? May be yes.

    May be yes, because you can easily identify with Nick and Ambar, their life style, their occupation and their attitude towards life.

     

    They both meet and instantly fall in love with each other. They are aware that they don’t know enough about each other and don’t have the time for it considering the nature of the profession they are into. So, they decide to stay together.

    They start to understand the differences and try to adjust with them. They want all the fun minus responsibilities. If any one of them wants to quit, he or she is free to go.

    Sounds interesting? Not really.

    Circumstances force them to face the responsibilities and then comes the twist. Now the question is, how you want to proceed.. On your own terms or with your life partner.

    I don’t want to reveal the whole plot so you better watch by yourself.

     

    Salaam Namaste comes as a refreshing change from routine love stories. It does have all the ingredient of a masala film but it tastes different.

    Saif and preity look cool in their trendy outfits. And the on screen chemistry between these two actors adds more depth to the characters they have played.
    Locals of Melbourne are breathtaking, and are captured very well. 

    Music is already topping the charts. The film could have easily do away with the song “whats going on..”. One slow number needs little trimming. You feel like humming “My dil goes Mmm..” even after the show concludes.

    I was not convinced with the authorities when Saif got the national award beating Shahrukh for Swades and Amitabh for Khaki. But you just can’t ignore his blistering talent. After hum-tum and parineeta  he is on hatric with Salaam Namaste. He is completely in form.

    I’m not a very big fan of priety zinta. But liked her in this film after ‘Kal ho na ho’. She is charming and energetic.
    These two look awesome together.  

    Full marks to the script and direction. The man behind the lenses deserves a special mention. Thumbs up for the music and packaging.

    Arshad warsi, Javed Jafri and Jugal hunsraj (remember this masoom actor?) are likeable and did justice to their roles.

    Lets come to the final verdict.
    Salaam | Namaste is nicely made movie. Though it strongly appeals to the youth, it can be watched by other age groups also. It guaranties light humor, emotional moments (not like viranee pariwar) and good entertainment.

    So if you are frustrated with Mangal’s halla bol act and can’t figure out why people laugh in NO ENTRY zone.. and if you haven’t watched a movie with your girlfriend after “My wife’s murder”, get the tickets of Salaam | Namaste.

    It entertains.
