Of Awards and Deepika… — August 21, 2008

Of Awards and Deepika…

Its high time I thank Reems for being so generous with her awards! Heart-felt thanks for first giving me the Ms. Prettiest Blog (WordPress) award and then for choosing me for the “Brilliant Weblog Premio 2008” award!! I am truly honored!!

Also thank you RJ for granting me this award! You rock 🙂

**Takes a bow while receiving the award**

Encore!! 😀

Now, with the award comes a deal: I have to choose 8 of my favorite blogs to hand over the award to!! Hmmm.. this is going to be tough 😦 I am going to make it simpler for me by following Reems and giving it to people who have not yet received this award!

Anyways let me try… I choose Krupa, Smita, Jana, Axinia, Kanan, Ruhi, Anamika, Roop (Some of you have gone into oblivion… hope this award will make you come out of your hibernation and start blogging again 🙂 )


Now that the celebrations are over, heres an interesting observation… At lunch, a few days ago, we were a bunch of 5 people – 3 guys, 2 girls. Now, the topic of Deepika Padukone surfaced out of nowhere and all the three men quite vehemently denied finding Deepika attractive!!! 😕

On being asked for a reason, some interesting things came to the fore…

Her face looks like a man. Put Prakash Padukone’s pic when he was 20 and hers side by side and you will know. She looks like her dad who has masculine features – Anshuman

And then came another interesting observation…

I dont like her because she is responsible for the downfall of our Indian cricket team – Man 2

When interrogated further, Man 2 revealed that he was talking about her stints with Dhoni and Yuvi 😛 😀

Well thats really funny coz the two women in the discussion both thought Deepika was pretty! And all the men thought she wasnt!

Now isnt that kind of strange? What do you guys think??

[PS… Interestingly, Madhuri was the only one who was liked by one and all!!! Yay! 😀 ]

Movie Review: Bachna Ae Haseeno – Yashraj is back! — August 18, 2008

Movie Review: Bachna Ae Haseeno – Yashraj is back!

The movie reminds you of the kind of romance you associate Yash Raj films with. It is fresh and endearing. Something that had gone missing for a while. And surprisingly, it was great to watch a yashraj movie without SRK or Rani!

The movie is the story of a professionally successful Indian casanova, played by Ranbir Kapoor, whose aim in life is to flirt with women and to use them, before moving on to the next one. The movie is all about how this guy turns over a new leaf… Realises how many women he had hurt over the years and goes about mending his ways…

The first half of the movie has some great moments – some great laughs… I specially liked his chemistry with Minissha Lamba, who plays the role of a love-stuck romantic girl called Maahi, who falls for this young guy she meets in Zurich. I can not think of any other girl who would have suited the role better. Maahi is supposed to be this dreamy, optimistic, simple and sweet girl, who is full of life. Minissha suits the role to the T. She completely looks the part and does a brilliant job!

Then he is shown with Bipasha Basu. She being much older than him, it kind of shows in the movie. I do not really remember the last movie that Bipasha sizzled in. In this one, she looks modern and hep, but the fire is missing. She plays the role of Radhika, a small town girl, who aspires to become a model. When I think of who could have done a better job??? Hmmm… maybe Priyanka?

Now comes the star couple of the movie – Ranbir and Deepika Padukone. Considering that this movie releases after the much publicised romance between the two, most of the junta would expect the couple to sizzle on the screen. And they will not be disappointed. Deepika looks fab in the movie and Ranbir just steals the show… The couple looks great together. He is just perfect for her height. The only hitch here is that by the time the movie ends, you wish you had seen more of the couple. Unfortunately, as against everyone’s expectations, Deepika is given very less footage in the movie. She has the shortest role amongst the three leading ladies.

So, if you are a fan of typical yash raj movies, with the mushy romance and dreamy characters, this is the movie to go to… It has all the typical flavours of the YR Banner – picturesque locales, beautiful people and some amazing music. Khuda Jane simply rocks. And you will hear Lucky Ali back with Aahista Aahista.

Now, I am not going to give out spoilers and tell you who Ranbir ends up with! 🙂 Go watch the movie to know this. You wont be disappointed 🙂
