Bloody Hell


Watching shitty movies since 2011 has always been our tradition. R and I choose the worst movies and we don't know why. 

So we made the mistake of watching Rangoon.

I have never disliked any movie. I genuinely enjoy watching crappy cinema too, but Rangoon was next level bullshit. It has been a flop but I trusted a few friends who said it was good, so I decided to go for it. 

There are people who have seen it two times! I mean why and how! Also, what!
It made absolutely no sense. 
From a masked Kangana Ranaut jumping trains to save her lover, to some secret sword being transferred as a token of support for India to fight with the Britishers. To completely wrong costumes and fake visuals. This movie has everything absurd. To quote Julia from the film, it was "bloody hell". You will see the stars drinking "sake" and having sex in the sand. Now no woman from that era when a war is going on would do that with her lover especially when her fiance is somewhere near by. It finally ended with Saif Ali Khan rope walking!! R and I kept looking at each other whilst screaming out words like "huh", "what", "ehh", "noways", "crap".

The only thing good about the movie was that we got the tickets for cheap. It was a "wow" Wednesday at PVR, so basically it was an "only-women" show. We were just eight women in the whole "bloody hell" theatre! I wasn't complaining because I got a taste of how it feels to own a theatre! Plus we got complimentary coffee which is of no use when you give it to two ardent "Chai-fanatics".

The saving grace of my day was a Margarita pizza and a lot of talk-therapy with R. 

That's all for now. Sorry but there is absolutely no "rang" in Rangoon. Just stupid goons. 

Bloody Hell.

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…
