I Love You …!

I was reading a fellow bloggers blog (http://kunaljanu.wordpress.com) and his post on his 100thblog….he was reviewing his journey and learning’s though these 100 posts and he has shared the most downloaded picture from his blog….it was simple nothing fancy…..but really cute…..I loved it…..and downloaded it…..and then I had nothing to do with it!!

All the picture said was “I Love You!” but since I have no even remotely  ‘romantically’ interesting in my life to send it to at this point of time….I thought I might as well put it up for my readers…and tell you that I love you!!!  i-love-you

Thank you for reading….Thank you for commenting…”I Love You!”

Now love and romance need not always co-exist…..:-)

Download it and use it!!!  Tell people you love them….it is important…..!! Sometime it backfires….but what the hell…it is still worth it!!

Happy Loving!!  (Sounds corny…but what the hell…its ok!)

 

 

I have no idea of the actual source of this little picture……but  my source is this blog http://kunaljanu.wordpress.com and I have given  it die credit!!

13 B!

Yeah there was a movie with this name….and I went and watched it in the theatre on a week day! Madhavan and some others….it was suppose to be a horror movie and  it was not very scary….but let me admit…I did watch is with my eyes half closed….with my hands on my face watching through the gaps in my fingers….on hindsight….it was not really required….nothing scary as such happened in the movie….now in my defense….I did not really know that…so better be prepared to shut your eye than be caught unawares!

Now I don’t know if I am really scared of horror movies……well I know it is not my favorite genre of movie….and I do believe in sprites and life after death….angles…maybe even ghosts ….and I believe….that you are going to see a scary movie….might as well get scared…like if you got for a Karan Johar movie…you might as well fall in love!

Back to 13 B…..btw..the movie is called 13 B..because he lives on the 13th floor etc etc….overall not a bad movie actually….it is about Madhvan’s family who moves into a new house and he realizes that there is so mething wrong with the house…..there is a TV serial that the women in the family watch and every things that happens to people in the serial actually happens to the family!! It is a little spooky….but not scary…

Will not disclose the climax….just in case someone wants to actually see the movie…..

The one line I liked in the movie was that… something to the effect of “ Agar Bhoot Insan mein ghus sakta hai to TV ya mobile mein kyon nahi!” Translation : “If ghosts can posses human being….so why cant they posses electronic items like TV’s and mobile phone!”

Well that is what the movie was all about….watch it only is you have nothing better to do….

Shooting of Oye! Its Friday…!

Farhan Aktakar….my namesake Shilpa Shetty and yours truly spend this Sunday afternoon shooting for the grand finale of Oye Its Friday!!

OyE!!

We were the unimportant audience….but we had a great time….even though Shilpa Shetty is not my hot  favorite…. (I am straight so that is understandable!) and Farhan is quite cute but he is SRK….the show was quite nice…..The live performances were the highlights….we got to see two of them. The first one was some firang chick…doing a solo dance…it was more like gymnastics than dance…..and she was super good….extremely flexible….you wonder if she has any bones in her body..she actually squeezed into a tiny box all by her self!! I don’t know if it will look as impressive when this is aired in TV….but it was truly wonderful to watch live!

The second performance was Sukvinder….with his group of dancers…Haulle Haulle…Jai Ho….the works….music and dance is always rocking…and so was this…

One of my friends actually took a video clip of the performance….so in case he is nice enough to share it with me…..I will link it to the blog….till then you can just imagine what it looked like!

Now for some secrets from back stage…J

1)      The show is not shot on Friday…!! (Well I am sure you already knew that!)

2)      The 1 hour show talks almost 3 hours to shoot….

3)      The set is air conditioned…(Thank God!)

4)      There are two stages opposite each other….one for the chat show….and the other for the performances. The audiences sits in between on backless stools which can be turned around to see either stage as the case may be… ( I had a back ache all Monday sitting on the stool!)

5)      The audience are paid to sit there per shoot….it ranges from 100 bucks for the boys to 900 bucks for girls with short skirts per day! ( Well…we did not get paid…we were NDTV guests)

6)      Farhan uses a tele -prompter and all the faltu jokes are written by some dude called Kiran…..so there is nothing spontaneous about the show….infact some of the guest cues are also on the tele-prompter!

7)      Even the audience questions are made up and pre-decided!!

8)   Only some of the performances are live and some are recording shown on the big screen shown to the guests!

9)      While watching the show live…the performances are more fun than the chat show which is all made up…..although he few times I have watched the episode on TV I was of a diametrically opposite opinion

 

So that was Oye! Its Friday! Exposed for you! Do watch the episode with Shilpa Shetty….supose to be the grand finale for this season…for those of you who know me…try and spot me in the audiences!!!

Sugar Barron’s Daughter….Loveleen Kacker

Finished yet another book written by an India author….this one was ok types….maybe cause it was setting I could not personally relate much to

The book was about the trials and tribulations of running a sugar factory…..it had the works….the strike…the gunda’s….the saib’s …the union…the workers…the politicians…the money…the murder….

Over all not a very exciting book…..but since it was just about 285 pages of fiction….it was definitely readable….no regrets in spending a Saturday morning reading it…!

Vagina Monologues

People….if you have not watched this play….you really really should……it is super funny……kind of sad in certain parts…..overall quite insightful!

I am not really a play/theater person….I prefer movies any day…..if you don’t like it at least you can pass comments and yet not be rude since the performers cant hear you…but this one was wonderful!

Although I had heard good reviews of this particular play…..I did not think it would be worth its salt…the name just did not sound like it would be right……Monologues…come on….I did want to listen some women giving a monologue….and that too about vagina’s….come on…..how could anyone give a monologue on Vagina’s! the name reminded me of a “ Friends” episode in which Chandler is stuck watching a play alone and some women goes on in a monologue…..Why do you do this to me etc etc….and he was so suffered through it…if you have watched  “Friends” you would know what I am talking about!

Now back to Vagina Monologues…..It was 5 women….  Mahabanoo Mody-Kotwal, Dolly Thakore , Sonali Sachdev, Jayati Bhatia, Avantika Akerkar….sitting on stools with their script in their hand…..(they kept throwing sheets of paper down as the act got over)…and they were absolutely rocking…!! Amazing voice modulations……expressions….body language…..all sitting right there on the stool! It was a very powerful performance….

I am inspired to go for a acting workshop!

Wiki gives an intersing plot summary ..  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Vagina_Monologues

But believe me reading it tells you nothing about the play….you must go and watch it!
