Absolute brilliance !!

I feel the magic of Raja Ravi Varmas paintings are lost in the cheap glare of paintings that go by the name of "modern art". Whats Happening??!!

Things that make us go..........

Sometimes I suffer from the "foot-in-mouth" disease.....I say right thing to the wrong person or the wrong thing to the right person.....and shove my foot right in my mouth.

Samurai Jack is Back !!

Its a wonderful cartoon series.......unfortunately not been watching it due to time constraints.
There are no absolute moral values ??? I Agree !!

Something I read

"Life threw a googly at him at the age of four.......but he still managed to hit a sixer"
- about an artist who was crippled when he was four years old.

Raincoat ??

Well what can I first movie at the PVR in Bangalore and it had to be raincoat.
All I can say about the movie is that, all the acting that Ash and Ajay did in 2 hrs of the movie was eclipsed by a 10 minute appearance by actor Anu Kapoor...The whole thing is based on O'Henry story "The Gift of Magi"...The stuff would have made a fantastic half an hour serial but the 2 hour torture is tooooo much to handle...even in a PVR. Just puts you off to sleep.However there are a few thought provoking scenes that have been well made....the whole affair is a movie version of a sleepy rainy afternoon that leaves one feeling lethargic.Shubha Mugdals Background voice is magical.....Otherwise Sad.

A n interesting TV series !!

The masked magician revealed the secrets behind some of the worlds most popular illusions in a TV series on Star World !! The whole thing was quite controversial....but then thats whats interesting about the whole thing.



One movie that has left a lasting impression on me is Swades......The movie is like a fresh breath of air to Indian cinema.
The movie is a welcome change from girls doing item numbers in bikinis, good to see a clean movie that knows where it is headed. Sharukh is as usual brilliant, the cinematographyand direction is commendable. The music is a work of sheer brilliance...cant stop listening to the songs !! and new actress Gayathri has done a good job.
Its unfortunate that people today are so blinded by the jazz of "Jink Chak" movies that are made, that they do not recognise brilliant cinema. Hence the bad reviews from critics.

Ayn Rand Again !!

“It does not matter that only a few in each generation will grasp and achieve the full reality of man's proper stature-and the rest will betray it. It is those few that move the world and give life its meaning-and it is those few that I have always sought to address. The rest are no concern of mine; it is not me or The Fountainhead that they will betray: it is their own souls.”

Ellsworth Toohey: We're alone. Why don't you tell me what you think of me.
Howard Roark: But I don't think of you.

-FountainHead by Ayn Rand

Good Movie !!

Indian Version of Hotel California - Sing along with the actual song !!


On a dark city one-way
'Nariyal Tel' in my hair
The smell of 'Batata Vada'
was rising up through the air
up ahead in the distance
I saw a green tube lite
My tongue grew heavy and my stomach grew thin
I had to stop for a bite

There he stood in the door way
repairing the calling bell
And I was thinking to myself
This could be hell ..... Oh ! It is hell
Then he lit up a petromax
and cursed the electricity board away
There were some sardars down the corridor
Thought I heard them say

Welcome to hotel kalasipalya
souch a lousy place
many a bug at the hotel kalasipalya
whats the spiral burning device
oh! Its just Tortoise

The finger in his nose definitely twisted
as three sneezes it sends
He makes a lot of weird noise
when the finger bends

About the 'kusthi' in the courtyard
Sticky 'Sardar' sweat
The man pleaded for mercy
while theire wives whipped them with a belt

I called upon the deaf captain
please tell me the time
He promptly ran into the kitchen
and brought me 'vangi bhat', soda and lime

And still those voices were crying, far away
wake you up in the middle of the night
just to hear them pray
Save us from hotel kalasipalya
Thas a mice ... No surprise
if the rodents at a dogs size

The blind man was feeling
yesterdays sambhar on rice
we are all pensioners here
said an old man in silk smitha disguise
and in the dining chamber
we gathered for the feast
we stab it with our steely knives
but just can't cut the meat

The last thing I remember
I was lying on the floor
The half eaten tapeworm in my snack
made my tummy sore
relax said the moustached watchman
mouth to mouth respiration you shall receive
they made me lie on my back
while my soul packed up to leave ......

Riddick !!

Vin Diesel was supposed to be better than 007 in XXX,The result was did not have enough diesel to fuel fast and furious either......But Riddick seems to have redeemed himself in Pitch black II.....Well. Its a good movie.....totally out of the world graphics (pun intended)and a solid performance by Vin to back it all up.

Chhookar Mere Man Ko Kiya Toone Kya Ishaara
Badla Yeh Mausam Lage Pyaara Jag Saara

Tu Jo Kahe Jeevan Bhar Tere Liye Maein Gaoon
Geet Tere Bolon Pe Likhta Chala Jaoon
Mere Geeton Mein Tujhe Dhoonde Jag Saara
Chhookar Mere Man Ko

Aaja Tera Aanchal Yeh Pyaar Se Maein Bhar Doon
Khushiyaan Jahan Bhar Ki Tujhko Nazar Kar Doon
Tu Hi Mera Jeevan Tu Hi Jeene Ka Sahaara
Chhookar Mere Man Ko
