Random Post



Last night lighting crackers at a friends place, reiterated my recent resolution that the fun one gets lighting crackers is just not worth the smoke and intense noise generated.
There was a time when I used to get bags full of crackers, so many that they would last the entire Diwali stretch and be available for celebrating Indian victory in cricket matches.
But since then I have limited myself to crackers that emit the least amount of sound or smoke.

I watched the movie 'American Beauty' and I think it sucks big time, reminds me of a quote
"All you need is for one person to think you're cool, and you're in. Everyone else will be scared to question it."
Pathetic movie with not one plus point, I have been a huuuuge fan of Kevin Spacey until I watched this movie, I see him in a weird new light now.

But I guess I live in an age where a "Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham" kind of movie with all its opulence scores over the brilliance and subtlety of a "Swades" (One of my all time fav movies)

Also this Diwali has ushered in a wave of changes, (all for the best as always), For the first time in my entire life, I am thinking of next Diwali (as in thinking almost a year ahead, I normally never try and look beyond the next weekend)

Cloing my random post with wishes for a wonderful, environment friendly and safe Diwali ahead!

Oh nooooooo! I loved American Beauty and not just because of Kevin Spacey. I liked the feel of the whole movie.
Oh, well.
As long as all sensible people are agreed on the fact that Kabhi Khushi... is prob the worst tripe to be passed off as cinema and that in spite of this millions of silly viewers lapped it up and how. [It was showing on TV today as well.]

Even I had liked the movie. It was so full of melancholy that I could not help liking it. And you should not miss on this movie's soundtrack. Its one of those scores that I am afraid to listen to too often in the fear that I might grow out of it.
