Another story that breaks the heart...


Monday, June 13, 2005


Well, weekend was veryyyyyy hectic but fun! I watched Parineeta on sunday afternoon and liked it immensely.It is a must watch, a very well made adaptation of novel by Sarat Chandra Chatterjee, each n every scene carries the story forward. I can't think of even one faltu ka scene.
Mr.Chatterjee I mean Mr.Sarat Chandra Chatterjee wrote this novel in 1914, good 13yrs after his first novel Devdas. There is striking similarity in the characters of the both novels, social-set up is also almost same, (well my views are based on the film-adaptations of both novels). Haveli culture, close-knit neighbours, grown-up adult good 'friends' who can visit each other's house at any hour, jealously etc.

The character of main protagonist 'Lolita' is so strong and gripping, and the way Vidya Balan portrayed it, makes it lot more charming. Though she is a brilliant actress who speaks with her eyes, at the same time I do not see her future in the mainstream cinema, simply I cannot imagine her doing routine masala cinema, running around the trees, doing item numbers etc. She can be clubbed with Konkena Sen type of actresses.

Only blemish was casting of Sanjay Dutt, he was a total misfit for the character he played and also Rekha in a dance number. Chhotey Nawab is improving definitely with leaps and bounds.

In short, pleasant music, a brilliant storyline, meticulously done by Pardeep Sarkar and Vinod Chopra.

Tata Indicom


Lets talk about news.....

1) Around a month back there was a news about CBI raid at Chautala's premises, and loads of cash was recovered, and then suddenly this news vanished like anything, no news channel or paper talks aboutt this now......????

2) And not long back, all news channels were flashing every minutest detail about the Shankaracharyas (both Sr. and Jr.) scandal, they flooded us with all sort of information (mostly irrelevant, like how much they slept, how much they ate that day, and other RUBISH,) and today there is no mention abt this scandal anywhere.

3) And how about that Delhi-rape-case, Delhi police claimed that they'll book the all 4 accused in 24 hrs, and till today forget the offenders, they couldn't even trace the vehicles used in the crime, this news was headline of almost all national dailies for 3-4 days and then shifted to 3rd page before vanishing totally.

4) Ahh..how can one forget Mr.Telagi(guy who once spent 90lacs on a bar girl in a single night). where is he? whatz status of that stamp-scandal?

Such list is endless.....Moti Garg case, disappearance of Subroto Roy, or Anjali something girl who was court-martialed, Delhi MMS case, Some revelations about match-fixing by Jaywant Lele and this latest 65-war plans leak case.

Each day media flashes a new "jazzy" news and keep on repeating it after every 2 mins....but where is the follow up? or shall I say WHO CARES?

Did I tell, I banged my car into the gate last night, and I did this second time in past 4 months, last time it resulted in scratches and this time a big dent accompanied scratches :-(
