Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

Of Barking Dogs and Mad Men


Everything they're saying about the movie is spot-on. It is indeed very Tarantinoesque. Shahid Kapur has indeed worked his butt on! and into shape, totally going the six-pack way and how! (Got me slightly hot under the collar!) The Piggy Chops and Shahid lip-lock is indeed quite the scorcher and it can be labelled the first, real, true kiss of Indian cinema. (Got me slightly hot under the collar!)

Ok, I have to be honest and admit that this is not the kind of movie genre that's on my fave list, but I do enjoy them at least once, on the big-screen with friends, popcorn and cappuchino. The story is pretty much 'A Comedy of Errors' gone all wrong, but the treatment? Well, let's just say it was a flaming tequila shot up the a**! Totally bad-a**!

The first half drags a little bit, just a little, but the second half picks up the pace and runs with it...and how! Oh, and the dialogues between Sweety and Guddu's characters during the love-making scene? As corny as a double cheese pizza with extra mozzarella, parmesan and cheddar. Kinda pheko-ed paani on the hotness of that smooch!

All in all? Definitely worth a dekho! DEFINITELY! Dhan-ta-naa...

It took a fantaftic movie like this to make me delurk on your blog and comment for the first time. I enjoy reading you btw just never commented before. I see you are a first day -first show movie freak and I so relate, especially the Bollywood part :)

The Dhan Tan Na song was great and I so so wish they didnt lip sync to it or if they had to, then Charlie's portion should have gone "kauri kauri paifa paifa paife ka khel"....Wouldn't that have elevated the sheer impact of that song?

I plan to watch it M4... everybody seems to like it. And Shahid Kapoor has special place in our hears after he answered some questions about his break up with Kareena in na interview... a very timely interview... ;)
(though I am sure the hurt feelings are genuine)
