There is no such thing as too many movies

Hi.

Felt like writing. I am majorly stuffed, behaved like a total glut, ate loads of junk, maggi, chips, 2 shawarmas, and a lot more. So to feel better and a little "healthy", I shall sip a cup of green tea. And let me tell you, I just took a sip of tulsi flavored green tea from a very big polka dotted mug...it does not taste good.

So my post for today will be revolving around movies. I saw 5 movies in the span of a week. I think I will put them in a list.

1. Jane Eyre
2. Ek Villian
3. Humpty Sharma ki dulhania
4. Fault in our stars
5. Dawn of the planet of the apes

No 1, 3 and 5 were damn good!.

No 2 and 4 were terrible.

I am not here to review anything, but I am going to ramble about some of the above movies.

People, first and foremost, please watch Humpty Sharma...its a damn cute movie, more like a modern ddlj. I was laughing the whole time, and its very well directed. The songs are terrible, only one good song in the movie which is Samjhawan. I am addicted and as of now that is on loop. However check out the original track of Samjhawan by Rahat fateh ali khan...its lovely. Here's the link! Even see Alia's unplugged version.

The end of the movie is so lame. like so lame. I think the director was told to take a break and Karan Johar sat on the chair and made the end. But nevertheless, very cute movie, makes you feel very lovey dovey post it, so your partner is going to get very lucky right after it. 

Now next, Jane Eyre is beautiful. A classic. Will read the book. 

Ek Villian - Have no words. I just want to break Shraddha Kapoor's teeth..too much of her teeth were shown. The only positive of the movie are the songs which are brilliant. All of them. Oh and the movie made me want a polaroid! So I shall buy one soon.

Now coming to Fault in Our Stars. There was a crazy hype about that movie with people all over instagram putting up pictures of tissue papers and posting quotes. So I obviously had a lot of expectations from this movie. It broke all of them. It was extremely dumb. I agree cancer is a serious issue and yes the actors did a good job, but maybe I din't like them, I don't know...I just couldn't bear the stupid movie. Forget tearing up, I was yawning. And I am considered to be a Corn Queen, so I was surprised myself about not liking it. But well, to each his own. However some quotes were very good. Here are some of them which I loved and connected to...The second is my absolute favorite...





Anyways after getting bored, I then saw Planet of Apes right after it. Now that was awesome. Just go see it. 
I kept calling it the "monkey" movie. I was literally dragged for it, bribed with Sprite and samosa..but I loved it..I haven't seen the first one, so shall catch it soon. 

Hmmm, I guess that's all. Shall get back to my book. Reading some short stories by Gulzar. 

Night all.

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
