So, now we need Twitter to figure out the date?!
It seems that Twitter has a secret "Post A Nonsense Tweet" contest going on.
And the username is – Pope2YouVatican.
Seriously!? All those smart people claiming to have a solution to the world's problems. Claiming to have an answer to every question (yes – "It is/was the will of god" is apparently a legitimate reply). Such great minds and THAT is the Twitter handle they come up with for the mouthpiece of god?!?.
If this doesn't qualify as 'Crap on Twitter', then what does?
It is called Powermat.
Nah, don't want to put up a poster for this post.
A B-grade film about a C-grade actress – dressed up, hyped up and presented as path-breaking / Hatt Ke cinema. It is not really about Silk Smitha. The story would easily apply to just about any C-grade actress (regardless of the era).
It is sad to see films like this being 'appreciated'. Or rather, I feel sad when a third class film like this is appreciated and given awards. To each his own.
Please note, it is not the subject of the film that is ticking me off. It is the production value / direction / acting that I have a problem with. This is NOT a well made film. Because of all the hype - it is being treated as a well made film. It is actually quite horrid.
Goes without saying – this is just my opinion. I am not an authority on film making. I may not be able to tell a good film from a bad film but I do know what I like and this is not even close.
Vidya Balan – This is not an award winning performance. Obviously, it would serve no purpose – but I would like to mention that she did win a lot of awards for what she has done in this film (I refuse to refer to it as acting).
The moaning, groaning, grinding – THAT is acting??! I have seen extras doing a better job. Dialogue delivery lacked the punch. Not convincing as a drunk. Her performance can be described AVERAGE at best.
Also, it doesn't help when you have crappy lines written for you in the script. What is even more disappointing is – when people clap at those crappy lines!?
I am going to watch Parineeta again. This is the only film in which I actually liked Vidya Balan.
Tolerable first half (well most of it). Second half is just annoying and dragged on (no idea why the producer / director felt the need).
The plot is … not much to talk about. The whole Janardan Jakhar (JJ) to Jordan thing – just didn't make sense to me. Seemed forced. The canteen guy giving career advice / singing advice / love advice?? The reporter trying to dig up some story?? Didn't really need any of that either.
All that nonsense in Kashmir – I skipped that as well. Most of the second half was pointless unnecessary crap.
More nonsense about the bad boy image - I can think of a million better ways of showing how it started. Getting dragged out of your married girl's house is sad/pathetic.
Seriously?! Couldn't you just show JJ leaving his house? Yes – just picking up his guitar and walking out. Was it really necessary to put in all the drama?
Iss ke sar pe upar waale ka haath hai – For once, try to keep it simple! More wasted footage. BTW, is it really a necessity that a record company HAS TO BE headed by a jerk? Why?
Here is an alternative –
Khatam baat. Khoobsurti saadgi mein hi hoti hai. Simple enough and not nearly as annoying. Running time significantly reduced. Absolutely no need to tolerate Nargis Fakhri's pathetic attempt at acting.
I seriously hope the makers come out with a 'special cut' of the film. A much shorter version – minus all the pointless crap.
About the music – As much as I tried to like it – I just couldn't. I did like a few lines in some of the songs, but this really isn't the music that would be playing in my car. Lots of people insisting on how great the Sufi number is. Guys going on and on about Sadda Haq… There are bits in that song that I actually like – but on the the whole – the music was a let down (for me). I have heard better… MUCH better.
Everyone defecates as well. Would it be ok for the BJP ministers to defecate while sitting in their assigned seats during the assembly proceedings?
BTW, didn't one of the involved ministers insist that they were in fact watching a documentary and NOT a porn clip? Why can't these idiots get their stories right?!
More 'insightful' statements from our politicians. Taaliyaan.
Of course. Well done, minister. Excellent. Deductive reasoning in action. Allow me to explain –
You see, according to Mr. Chidambaram – if a bomb / exploding device was used to blow up any other woman in any other car, it would be treated as a crime of passion and not a terrorist attack. Probably they would be looking for a jilted lover or a road side Romeo. It is only because the target happened to be the wife of a diplomat – that we are treating it as a terrorist attack.
Is that right, minister? Is that what you meant by your absolutely ridiculous statement?
This is what happens when you ask a finance guy to head the Home Ministry. Doob maro!
Demanding that Dow Chemicals be dropped as a sponsor for the Olympics. Hmm. Question – Assuming that Dow does get dropped – What exactly would be accomplished for the victims (and/or their families) of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy?
The IOA wants the IOC to understand and appreciate the sentiments and feelings of the victims. That is the argument presented by Mr. Malhotra. If it makes you (and the victims and their families) happy, then perhaps IOC could put up banners with pictures of the victims and their families. Without any sponsorship deal whatsoever (I so wish someone at IOC proposes this).
How is that for understanding and appreciating your sentiments!?
To sweeten the deal and to show just how understanding the IOC is, the IOC could suggest that the banners will be placed right above Dow Chemical's banners.
Before you start calling me names and reminding me how emotionally bankrupt I am – please understand that according to the IOA and Mr. Malhotra – the BANNER is all important.
Displaying Dow Chemical's banners will hurt the sentiments and feelings of the victims. Given that the IOA and Mr. Malhotra attach so much importance to a banner, let them have a banner of their own for the victims and have it displayed.
Dikhaawon pe mat jaao, apni akal ladaao.
Tere pyaar mein rusvaa hokar, jaayen kahaan deewaane log
Jaane kya-kya poochh rahe hain ye jaane pahchaane log
Jaise tumhe humne chaahaa thaa, kaun bhalaa yoon chaahega
Maanaa aur bahut aayenge tum se pyaar jataane log
Kaise dukhon ke mausam aaye, kaisi aag lagi yaaro
Ab sahraaon se laate hain phoolon ke nazraane log
Kal maatam beqimat hoga, aaj inki tauqir karo
Dekho khoon-e-jigar se kya-kya likhte hain afsaane log
Jaante hain ye ishq musalsal rog hai aah-o-zaari ka
Phir bhi uske kuche mein jaate hain umr gavaane log
Pathetic reporting. Pathetic incident. Pathetic responses. And a typo. Classic Times of India (and I am not just referring to the name of the newspaper).
Firstly, seperate - there is no such word. It is spelt separate, you illiterate moron!
Now with that out of the way, let us talk about the article. What exactly does this article tell the reader? Does the event merit such an elaborate article? The event being – the ministers have replied to the Show Cause Notice. The article tells you:
If TOI thinks these details are relevant and need to be reported, why haven't they mentioned:
Furthermore, is the Speaker serious? What the hell has he been smoking?? The idiot wants to form a committee to probe the matter?!! They were watching porn during the assembly proceedings. What is there to probe!?
Fuck that - he wants to take his time to decide which six members of the house will be part of the committee!?
And you think I have my priorities mixed up!?!?
Another one of those things that I just don't understand the need for.
Err… not exactly amazed by this but it is definitely better than pressure sensors in a car seat to identify the owner using his butt's 3D representation and weight distribution.
Stating the obvious – ripped off from Italian Job. Arrey bhai, nakal ke liye bhi akal ki zaroorat hoti hai.
One major difference – Italian Job was fun to watch. Players – was rather painful. In fact, it was so painful that I didn't even bother to watch it till the end. The first hour or so, is just trash (barring Bipasha, of course).
The rest of the cast can be ignored. Could ignore Sonam Kapoor as well – but couldn't help myself and just had to put that up.
Victor Dada can receive guests in prison. In the prison itself, he can discuss (with his CA) plans for building an educational facility. He can receive DVDs and mobiles with details and plans of the heist. But, for some reason – Victor feels the need to fake a heart attack in order to speak to his CA and introduce him to the other players who will help out with the heist (?!?).
Ahem… kabhi to akal se kaam liya karo!
Happened to catch bits of the Zee Cine Awards 2012.
As horrified as I was – reading the titles nominated for the Best Film, what really had me rolling my eyes was – a category called Best Use Of Media. Just another pointless category along with International Icon. Wonder if these people actually know the meaning of the term 'icon'.
Seems like they are just inventing categories to keep celebrities happy.
The 7.1 leaks have been around for a while. For some reason, I just didn't get around to installing one on my handset – earlier. The other day, I had some time on my hands and decided to go ahead with the OS update. No problems (there rarely are any problems when you know what you are doing). Pretty happy with it. BTW, thank you RIM for including Mobile Hotspot (finally).
Crackberry is buzzing with news that T-Mobile US has just released 18.104.22.1688. Hmm. Should have waited for a few days and downloaded a newer official version.
Not that I have any complaints from the leaked one, but still…
'Kolaveri Di' was a crap song to begin with. The 'Kolaveri Di' success story should be a case study in a medical college for students who have psychology as a subject. It would make sense to figure out why the number of idiots in the world is increasing at such an alarming rate.
Labels: Think About It
Not just this part, but the entire article is ridiculous.
There is no way you get locked in, just because you want to dance. Drunk or not. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure what 'trouble' the family was REALLY trying to avoid.
Labels: Simply Pathetic
So the guy smoked a cigarette. Big deal! Slam him with a fine and move on. There is absolutely no point in wasting your time or his. It is sad enough that such crap is even considered news worthy.
What is this nonsense about starting an investigation? Doesn't anybody in any of the government departments have anything better to do with their time?
Why don't these idiots just stick to calculating their PF maturity amounts / pensions / end of service indemnity instead of launching pointless investigations.
The only reason I wanted to watch this film was – Kancha Cheena.
