Just finished watching the movie- 'Khuda Ke Liye'. There are some movies which you want to watch all over again soon after you finish watching it. KKL is one such movie. A brilliantly shot movie dealing with a ultra sensitive subject, we've got to give it to the Director who is also the story writer. The story revolves around two muslim brothers who are extremelly passionate about music. The way their lives change due to extremist influence and the 9/11 incident forms the story. Shaan, one of the brothers, is arrested and tortured for the simple reason that he is a muslim and happens to be in the USA when the 9/11 blasts take place. The torture eventually makes him a mentally unstable and he is sent to rehab. The other brother, under the misguided influence of a Maula, becomes a part of the Jihad forces and forcefully marries his own cousin too. The movie also has Naseerudin Shah who plays the part of a Maula and explains in the Court about how some people misinterpret the…
After a long time I have a free sunday. I had quite a few plans, all of which involved eating out or watching movies. But its so difficult to get tickets for a decent movie in a decent theater these days. And my thiruttu VCD guy is no longer available, guess he was caught by the police or something. So I've no other go but to go to the theater and watch a movie. As a IP lawyer I guess I shld be happy about this. [but i am not ;( ]

Really want to watch Nayagan with a big gang of friends. I'm sure it would be a lot of fun.

Was watching Farhan Akhtar on tv last night. He looks damn cute and I am surprised that he is making an entry as an actor after such a long period. So Rock on becomes a must see with Purab, Arjun and Akhtar Jr. in it!
A friend sent me this forward about what tree you are and said it suited me 90%-
'unrelenting, strange and full of contrasts, often egotistic , aggressive, noble, broad horizon, unexpected reactions, spontaneous, unlimited ambition, no flexibility, difficult and uncommon partner, not always like but often admired, ingenious strategist, very jealous and paasionate, no compromise.'
I am sure that now Shilpa Shetty will announce that she is going to pray for Jane Goody's recovery.
This weather is making me so damn sleepy. I din have a heart to get up this morning. So much for my plans to wake up early and practise violin.
A friend's wedding this evening. A wedding means spending hours in front of the cupboard thinking of what to wear. 'Oh no, not this, I wore this to X's brother's wedding remember' or' oh no, this makes me look like i am some maami', and so finally my mother pulls out her old saree and tells me- 'here, u wear this and dont ask me again'. Left with no other choice, I silently crib and then suddenly realise that the saree's blouse does not fit me at all! Great, now i've a great excuse. So I tell my mom- 'how du expect me to wear this saree, just look at this ill fitting blouse. I mean this was in fashion when Raveena Tandon wore it, but no longer'. But my mother being the know-it-all-lady says- 'I am at home all day so shall alter it for ya'. Hmm no way out I guess, got to go with the maa…
