what we did after we cut the branches of the bougainvillea

So there we were - 4 of us in the front row and one behind , parking problems solved with the car already in the basement and checked through by AG once we reached the place . Shahrukh Khan , a favourite actor with me for no particular reason , did not sniff even once , nor did he do whatever he normally does with his nose . The film was one of the better ones I have seen in a long time - the Namesake included.

The cast was fresh and the pace was tight and controlled . Although the ending was a bit far fetched , it was inspiring to say the least and a message to the Sports Authority that with discipline and determination one can achieve laurels .It was heartening to see a group of girls beat the mickey out of a group of yobbos in Delhi - yet - but greatly appreciated by the audience.

Also watched Bheja Fry - hugely entertaining . It was very refreshing to watch 2 films without the mandatory song and dance , gunshots , item girls shaking their booty and staccato music

All in all a great week .

One thing puzzled me though - why is Milind Soman a Greek God ? And a hairy one at that ?

So you enjoyed it too! And I like Bheja Fry a bit more each time I watch it :)

Actually, my rather biased opinion is that without all that hair covering his face Milind Soman IS a bit of a hunk!! Sorry, that's a hangover from the age of 18. Which also means he is an AGING Greek God!

Bheja Fry! Is this that hilarious thing they used to show on MTV? Ps: Very nice new template.

I loved Chak De India. I watched it last Wednesday at Elite. I think the ending justifies the purpose of the film. The audience was cheering wildly and it felt like being in a stadium.

Hope you are all well and I wish Tani all the best for her studies.

loved chak de too..

as for milind - i dont know if anamika and i are biased because we grew up together - but he is quite delicious.

i've interviewed almost all the actors, and none of them make your toes curl like milind.
