Movie Review

Dil Bole ‘Hadap’-pa

When? Oh! When?

When will B(/K)ollywood learn to be original? For how many more centuries will be continue to copy plots and music?

I really was looking forward to watching Dil Bole Hadippa, but then I read Quirky’s exhaustive review, and decided to skip it. The movie, I mean.

When I accidentally came across the story-line, I was disgusted, as this is a straight lift off the English movie: She’s the man. Now that, was a thoroughly enjoyable movie. So, I was upset to see Yashraj has simply hadap-ed an English movie, instead of letting their creative juices flow. I guess all they want is a juicy cash flow!

Ofcourse they will rake in the moolah. They have * handsome Shahid * Nautankey Rakhi!  * And crafty Rani. (I somehow find her sexy smile rather artificial and forced!)

Call me crazy, but am I the only one in the world to think Rani looks worn?!She doesn’t quite have that refreshing charm she exuded in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai or Ghulam (and I absolutely loved her in those movies!!). And to think of watching Rakhi Sawant, that itself is sheer torture. Much as I respect her outspoken-ness, she is a little too brash for my liking!

On another note, Aishwarya Rai seems to have gained a few tyres. Check out this video. Cheap thrill, that 😉 – the much-hyped Bacchhan Bahu isn’t quite the slender reed she used to be.

Now, now, now, Don’t you go pointing fingers at me! Neither am I a former Miss World nor do I get paid Crores of rupees, while being adored by the new Mummas-and-Pappas.

Another tidbit for you… when I tried to Google ‘Aishwarya Rai’ , this is one of the answers that came up featuring a link to ‘Wikianswers‘. What a waste of Internet resources. We Indians are crazy about ‘our stars’, aren’t we?!

Thought and Reason

Success follows the successful (Big B’s blog)

The reason I’m writing about his blog today is, I’m still trying to figure out what makes a blog popular.

Now, Big B’s blog is not a fascinating piece of writing. It is interesting, not gripping. One point in its favour is the fact that it reads terribly “genuine”. And Big B actually replies to some of the comments. Which is quite gratifying. considering he is “Tussi Great Ho” ! However, it is very ordinary, in terms of style, language and content (ofcourse, that is debatable, for his itinerary might interest me, and not you!). Yet, there are hundreds of comments on his posts, from fans across the world! So you see, he doesn’t have to TRY to be a successful blogger. Which is why the saying goes: Success follows the successful”.

Okay then! Got to go now …. I have to think of some “noticable comment” to write on Big B’s blog ;-)))
