Of this and that

Three Hindi movies down, this weekend was pretty enjoyable. And the movies were - Main hoon na, Pardes and DDlJ. All pretty oldies but nevertheless it feels nice to revise them after a while. I hadn't seen Main Hoon Na earlier, so it was the first time. The story line is very boring and ghatiya. The college life has been depicted in all the wrong way(unable to find a better word to describe it), with no resemblance to actual college life. Below average sort of a movie, which I won't see again.
Pardes and DDlJ are good, but in Pardes too, that Kabaddi episode is out of place and shouldn't have been there. Apart from that, its worth watching and DDLJ - no comments are required for that I suppose.
Next movie in the pipeline should be - In Pursuit of Happiness - Let's see when I can see it - probably the coming weekend.

Went to Palika Bazar after a long time. The place is almost always crowded, but mostly there are electronic shops there - selling the same times of goods - apart from that nothing much variety available.

About the World Cup Cricket Match between India and Bangladesh, which India lost - the least said the better. Tons of newspaper articles, blog posts etc etc must have already been written on it.

hmmmm - Main Hoon Na, Pardes and DDLJ -- All SRK film

Main Hoon Na - I would like to say "Kya Tum The?"

Pardes - Liked due to the fresher - Mahima & Apoorva

DDLJ - Kajol, Kajol & Kajol :).


In Pursuit of Happiness - Tell us how it is.

I didn't visit Palika Bazar so no Idia about it.

Don't talk about World Cup Cricket Match between India and Bangladesh.


Shame on.

Did you get some SRK three-in-one DVD?

Pardes - Good to see that u liked it, often i hv seen it rubbished. But frankly, it was the last of good Subhash Ghai films, and I quite enjoyed it.

Oh yes, Fatehpur and Sikri are impossibly edited and juxtaposed together in that final song!


DDLJ - excellent film, no doubt!

Mai Hoon Na - hated it, and hated its music, all the more when it won the Best Music Award! C'mon, how cud they give it to this film's music?!

Palika Bazaar - as always i go there to get mp3's - though its tough to find them now a days, with the anti-piracy guys overactive. Was there on Feb 20th :D

i agree with you about palika... remember pcking up some decent clothes from there on my trip in 2004. but last year, t was all electronics and nothing else... and you can't be sure if they are authentic!

Yes, SRK 3 in one DVD...
Pardes I had seen earlier too - when it was released - at that time too - I had liked it - Mahima is also looking beautiful and SRK has also done a good job. Overall it quite nice and enjoyable movie - music is also good - especially - do dil mil rhey hain, nehi hona tha, dil .. deewana dil...
DDLJ - yes ecellent no doubt ..
Main hoon na - I think - more or less about movies our likings and dislikings are same to an extent ..so probably I'll start seeing all the movies you recommend on your blog...
