Ab Tera kya hoga Johnny...????

Apparently Tutu Sharma thinks "There is a slight divide in the way films are made in India and internationally".

The ex-producer of Masala movies like "Rajkumar", "Gharwali Baharwali" and "Khullam Khulla Pyaar Karen" thinks that "filmmakers must understand the need for tweaking their projects to international taste "

He adds "The use of background music is subtle abroad, the use of music is much lesser...technically they are much advanced. So filmmakers in India should consider these small changes before taking films to international markets,"

Wait a minute...

What about having a real script for the movie? What will it take for these producers to realize that a movie has to have a script. It can not forever follow the formula of 5:2:1:3 ( 5 songs, 2 romance scenes, 1 rape, 3 fights) or 6:3:3:7 with a different set of actors in a different plot.

The movies like Peepli live and My name is khan were able to address masses across boundaries because they had a story to tell and not just marketing as Tutu saab suspects..

Tutu sharma's 'Tera Kya Hoga Johnny' is due to hit the theaters this Dec 17th after a long wait in the box since 2008.

Who's the BIG B

Kutty srank, Paleri Manikyam, Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja Three exceptional movies, Seven vibrant charactors, One Brilliant actor, Muhammed Kutty, All this in one calender year in itself is an achievement.

I don't intend talk about how and why Bachan sab got National award for his critically acclaimed Paa , in which he plays a boy with a rare genetic condition known as progeria when the makeup artists (Christein Tinsley and Dominie Till) were more deserving candidates for that award more than the the BIG B himself.

Nor do I intend to praise Mammoty's acting skills and his dedication towards doing good movies which are not block busters in the box office, when he could like other Actors earn more by simply showing his head in commercial Mambo Jumbo and advertisements.

Instead I would take this opportunity to recommend the following movies for the benefit of those who have missed them. Get a copy from your nearest DVD store and enjoy the ride.

1. Paleri Manikyam

2. Kutti Srank

3. Kerala Cafe

4. Pranchiyettan

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows - A good build up or A complete let down

2 /5
The first part of the season finale of Potter's magical world hit the screens world wide last week. As always the expectations were high and the buzz was in the air with almost all the multiplexes showcasing the gryffindorians in most of their screens.

Having read the whole series and watched all the franchise movies, I went to the theater with a very low expectation.

The movie was engaging as well as entertaining, with some good action sequences with good camera work and great graphics.

The most interesting sub plot from the book along with other sequences was the one in witch how Harry and friends were learning how to with the arrogant and adamant house elf at the Black's house who was now Harry's servant. The sub plot with Kreature and the gryffindorians went completely missing from the movie.

Unlike the the previous episode, Harry potter and The half blood prince this movie had lesser light moments. The only laughs that got generated in the theatre was from the sounds my 11 month old kid was making.

The stand outs of the movie are the performances from its lead characters and some brilliant cinematography. Rupert Grint (Ronald Weasley) has yet again showcased his acting skills wonderfully and is maturing to be a good 'English' actor every year passing.

Instead of working on a good standalone movie, the writers concentrated on a action packed build up for the season finale. And to a good extend they have succeeded. So if you don't compare between the book and the movie, You might get entertained this coming weekend.

Fall of a Giant

On October 23, 2000, Yokozuna died from heart failure in his room at the Moat House Hotel, Liverpool, England while he was on an independent wrestling tour in Europe.[1] It was speculated in the days following his passing that lifelong arachnophobe Yokozuna may have suffered a heart attack due to the shock of seeing a spider in his hotel room. The tour promoter Brian Dixon said that Yokozuna had a clause written into his contract to "have his dressing rooms and hotel rooms swept 30 minutes before he entered them to make sure there were no spiders".[39] Yokozuna died at the weight of 770 lb (350 kg)

Looks like….

It looks like we have a responsible government.

25% stake for public will protect the public from losing their investment (to an extent) due to market speculations which are more or less based on mere rumors based on half baked facts.

Finally… They have approved my Application

Sometimes simple things in life becomes so complicated that you end up feeling miserable and whatever you think about is depressing and then you start feeling so terrible that you are sure that there is no light at the end of tunnel. Most of the times you come out of these situation and then you discover that all those worries have become sweet memories.

Sometimes in life we have lot of fun and we enjoy a lot over a long period of time then finally something terrible happens, and then you figure out that all that happiness was based on lie. From that moment all those nice experiences becomes a nightmare and you start re evaluating all that happened.

Some other times you have a terrible run. You are made to suffer a lot over a long period of time. You suffer so much that you start thinking "what is the point". Finally you realize that you have achieved a greater Happyness at the end of all misery. From that point all those miseries becomes sweet memories.

Good and Evil

He is a good person. He is a gentleman. She is a lady. She is a very wonderful person. We classify people based on certain criterion at given point in time. criterion keeps changing with Time, space and situation. Sometimes good and bad are different for different people. Something good for one person can be bad for another. Theft, Murder, Adultery, Terrorism, Fight against Terrorism, Alcoholism, Smoking... May it be anything raging from updating the miles you ran every day on facebook to murdering 100s of people with just one click of a button; People seems to have different opinion of them being Good or Bad.
In My opinion Good is somebody who makes a mistake and then never repeats it and Evil is a person who keeps on doing the same mistake again and again.

When Life becomes a 'GAME' with no rules

On lookers (If they are not indifferent) can only pity.

Other players are either cheated or they are beaten.

Anyways one thing is for sure nobody will win in the end.

Yun To Main,Dikhlata Nahin
Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon Main Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pata, Hain Na Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pata,,Meri Maa

Bheed Mein Yun Na Chodo Mujhe
Ghar Laut Ke Bhi Aa Naa Paoon Maa
Bhej Na Itna Door Mujkko Tu
Yaad Bhi Tujhko Aa Naa Paoon Maa
Kya Itna Bura Hoon Main Maa
Kya Itna Bura Meri Maa

Jab Bhi Kabhi Papa Mujhe
Jo Zor Se Jhoola Jhulate Hain Maa
Meri Nazar Dhoondhe Tujhe
Sochu Yahi Tu Aa Ke Thaamegi Maa

Main Kabhi Batlata Nahin
Par Andhere Se Darta Hoon Main Maa
Yun To Main,Dikhlata Nahin
Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon Main Maa

Toilet Papers

Religion is as good as toilet papers as long as it does not make a person a better human being.

26th December 2009

You were lying there on ruby's Lap Motionless. You were pale and breathless, I took my eye off the Camera's view finder and I saw you lying there, thousands of emotions came rushing into my consciousness. Overwhelmed with emotions and a camera to handle, I became completely indifferent of what was happening around me. When you were struggling to catch your first breath, I was standing there smiling and wondering who you were looking like. Every Now and then I took a break from filming to try and figure out what to think.

Looking Back, the journey from Two to Three was not just a jump of a digit but a gradual increment of millions of decimals. From running around to find Notary public to make affidavit for marriage to running around the bumpy roads of Bangalore to induce labor, was a long journey, One with many ups and downs.

You have started your journey with whom must be the most unlikely parents the world can ever throw at you. Parenting and being a role model was the last things we had in mind when we decided it was time we brought you to this material world. At this point in time I have only one advice to share with you "No Lesson is a Lesson unless you have learned from your own experience".
