Every good thing must come to an end…

As is visible, I am a huge Calvin and Hobbes fan. The strip was stopped in 1996. I came across the last strip…Any attempts by me, to describe it, or elaborate upon it will be an insult and an exercise in futility…

BREAKING NEWS!!(Delayed)

leave a comment »

Although I have my exams going on , there were two of the most brilliant pieces of journalism ever, being showcased by the TOI fraternity—–

(This was in paper two days ago…>Damn exams..couldn’t do it early…)

This was on the GRAFITI section(On the last page of Main paper..)

GEMMA POOS IN FRONT OF BOYFRIEND

(A reference to Cristiano Ronaldo’s Ex-flame Gemma Atkinson)

HAMMY GETS 11/10 FROM BEAUTY QUEEN CEMRE MIRREL

(A washed up has been “Booty Queen”, who apparently used to sleep around with the High flier Lewis Hamilton….)

This sort of news in the main paper in the news section!!!!

Times should stop calling itself a paper and become a tabloid. I am sure they have a John Jonna Jameson running the whole thing …..

Although I have to admit, this piece of news is funny in some convoluted(some would say perverted way…) TGI-TOI

Kaan-fuesd

Why is it that we get an urge to do pointless things when the exams are near. Things we wouldn’t think about much otherwise. These things seem more urgent and necessary than breathing!

Like writing this post………….

NOTE—–The kaan-fused title has nothing to do with the post directly. Just thought it sounded funny(and really really cliche’)

Though I did injure my ear when I fell down from the bed today morning.

That day in college was like any other day. I had no clue about how special it was going to get. Me and a friend of mine X aka the monkey(in case he wishes to remain unnamed…) were getting bored, so we decided to channel our creativity into making a special list. We made up parody names for all the top Imdb movies we could think of . Here it is……(My apologies to the filmmakers.)

Good Phallus

Dr.Strangelove or How I stopped worrying and fucked the blonde.

Dr.Do-Me-A-Little

The Third Man(No need to change here 😀 )

Shaving Ryan’s Privates(Again a real movie!!)

Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless behind.

Das Booty

Catch Mine If You Can

Raging Bull(Again no need to change.)

Forest Hump

And now for the finale’, quoting Friends…..

Buffay The Vampire Layer

UPDATES- (Prompted and Inspired by “the monkey”)

Good Will Humping

Josie’s Pussy and The Cats

Ben’s Whore

This is one of the things I experimented with during my surprisingly accident free Diwali.. 🙂 ——–

We were through with most of our firecrackers , with only the incomparable “Fuljhadi’s” remaining.

Now I have this insatiable need to grab attention. So I did exactly that.

I took around 9-10 standard size Fuljhadi’s in one hand and lit them up more or less simultaneously.

It was wonderful. Whoooosh.

A huge ball of light and fire..

My hand almost got burnt when posing for the pic, but the whole experience was worth it. 😀

Manorama Six Feet Under- Head and Shoulders above everyone….

This review was long due………

I am not sure how many of you have even heard about this movie.

I had heard a lot about the movie from my friends.Was really eager to go. But then this movie suffered the same fate that the likes of “Jane Bhi Do Yaron” have suffered over the years. Public apathy. Because of lack of publicity and “stars” the movie hasn’t made that big a impact. The show at CP Kothrud got canceled wednesday night because of lack of ticket sales.

Even the plans for Thursday were very shaky. My companion to the movie , Nagraj, wasn’t sure weather he will be able to come or not. I was afraid that this Friday would be the last day of the movie. My hopes of seeing it in a theatre were fading fast.

Then gods of fate smiled. His class got over early that day. I had company for the movie(I have a problem going to a movie alone. Have done that only once. It was for a sidey porn flick named “Buffay The Vampire Layer”….)

Anyway….We bought our tickets and went inside. There was hardly anyone around so buying a cheap ticket turned out to be a wise choice.

We missed the trailers (I am jinxed in this department..). I was a wee bit apprehensive about the movie at first. But it got hold of me immediately. It is a very well paced movie with a gripping story line. Plus it had two of the most under-rated actresses in the industry today. Raima Sen(Not her semi naked sister) and Gul Panag. The casting of the movie was spot on. Kulbhushan Kharbanda gives a nice performance in the role of a corrupt politician. The part I loved the most in the movie was that it relied more on storytelling and not on fancy locations or anything.

The only change I would have made to the movie was casting someone like Shiney Ahuja in place of Abhay Deol(Who did a commendable job..but something was lacking.)

One more thing that struck me was the cinematography and the shooting locales. It was just beautiful. The movie was shot in Rajasthan and the Director managed to capture the beauty of the state brilliantly. But all of this was a part of the story and not a diversion(a la’ Yash Raj…) . It was hard to believe that this was a debutant director.

This movie is inspired by the Jack Nicholson starrer “Chinatown” which is a classic for Film Noir’. The director very cleverly pays homage to the movie in Manorama. Abhay Deol can be seen watching the movie on TV. The fact that I am a Noir fan kinda made this movie all the more lovable for me. But even those who don’t like this genre can appreciate this masterpiece.

After the movie was over I came out completely satisfied. I won’t say much about the movie in case I end up giving away too much information. My only advice is “go for it”… You will be able to find a CD easily.

PS_ Its not one of those sleazy movies that release nowadays ….so you can see it with your parents/kids if you want 🙂

It Was Easily The Best Movie I have Seen This Year
