Bald is beautiful...but only on The Bald Guy!
Do you like bald women? I somehow don't. Just doesn't seem feminine enough to me...just my thoughts...not judging based on any other factor. Imagine seeing a bald Katrina Kaif in her next movie!
Do you think this is beautiful?
So, you have a blog...huh! Big deal...Meet Samson, a rickshaw driver from Chennai. He has his own website - tuktastic.com.He gives out important information about the city and how to contact him by phone or email. I am mighty impressed with this man's entrepreneurial skills and ability. Who ever heard of a rick guy having his website? Great going Samson. Thumbs up to you! I know you will never read this post...but im proud of you.
Now, meet Sandeep (video below) who is also a rickshaw driver from Bombay.His aim seems to be how to best serve his customers. His rickshaw has a TV, fan, magazines, donation box. He gives discounts to handicapped, blind and even newly married couples :) How thoughtful is that! Such people are the bright shining stars of our country, the real heros who we forget so often. See this short video to know what he does and how he has made it.
I'm just out of a show of My Name Is Khan and have to say it is a very very fine film. SRK is at one of his best acts ever as an autistic. Kajol was a real pleasure to watch and KJo, hats off to you for making such a sensitive and relevant movie and rising above the drab stereotype you had created as your brand!
What Karan Johar decides to show us is nothing new. I have heard some personal accounts of Muslims, especially in America who have gone through a bad and harrowing time after 11/9. Most of us have read or heard these stories before, but its the sensitivity with which KJo handled the subject and beautifully unfolded the story.You can feel the injustice, the fear, the trauma that common innocent people suffer everyday in a country, which has become highly racially profiled post 11/9.
This is a movie everybody must see, more-so the Americans. Dub/sub-title it in many languages and show it around the world. People need to know, they need to awaken, they need to be sensitized to the other side, they need to come out of their make belief world and stop generalizing and painting a whole community black because of a certain group of lost directionless people. MNIK needs to be seen for its message of humanity and brotherhood and appeals to us to rise above religion (and other limiting factors) and not judge people by them. Thumbs up to the entire team of MNIK for their sincere attempt at this one!
Now, here is the bit i liked most about the film :) It put my favorite song from my school days back on my lips...hum honge kaamyab...hum honge kaamyaab...hum honge kaamyaab ek din...
Love the hindi english fusion in the video.
Tere dwar khada ek applicant :-) Got this as an email fwd.
TBG, please do visit this place. Would want a 1st hand account of this chamatkar :-)
That reminds me, some time back a friend was telling him how he had visited a temple in Hyderabad when he had applied for his visa/work permit - Chilkur Balaji temple..also widely known as the Balaji Visa temple. It's believed that praying to this god at this temple, will get your visa in no time. More than 1 lac devotees visit this place every week in hope their visa will be processed and they can head to the land of their dreams...wonder what the US visa authority may have to say to this...hmmm
Now, you know where to head when you file your visa papers :-)
What do you expect when you go to see a Sherlock Holmes movie?
Sherlock Holmes of course! The character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Well, what you get is not Conan Doyle's Holmes, but Guy Ritchie's Holmes, the reinvented Holmes. He is one funny guy who does action stunts, boxing, has six pack abs, is messy, witty, and wierd at times. But, entertaining nevertheless :)
We get to see London in those times, a very lovable Dr. Watson, a sexy Sherlock Homes, good cominc timing, 2 women who are a mere distraction, and some black magic! Yea, its quite a mix that Guy Ricthie created...he got Holmes and mixed it with a bit of magic from Harry Potter and to make the girls go aah ooh put in a bit of sexiness in Holmes, and then added the James Bond effect to it...and voila you have the new age action hero- Sherlock Holmes vying for your attention...which he does get!
Well, I did enjoy the movie, but it kept hurting me in parts that this was not the Holmes I came looking for. But, yes I still did get engaged and disengaged too at times. This was Guy Ritchie's 007 movie and back home in desi land...i could pass this off even as an Akshay Kumar action flick.
My feeling - if you grew up reading and admiring Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, this movie might disappoint you. But, if you are up for some experimentation and fun, you could come out like a happy camper after this 'cool' Guy Ritchie flick!
