Dum Maro Dum - required a lil more dum, I say!

Looks like being crass is the trend these days that films follow and everyone seems to be taking to it rather nicely. Just watched Dum Maro Dum and the first 30 minutes of the film is really crass (for my ears at least). I'd say the name of the film is very apt, sticks to the plot all the time. 
Last time round when Bluff master released, I was a huge Abhishek Bacchan fan and this time round, while he does act well, he does not stir any emotions. Though, I'd say intense eyes. Plus he is really good in cop roles.

So this ain't really a review but me talking about what I liked and what I did not. So first, what I liked:
1. Prateik Babbar. Ubber cute! Yes, he is good and will get better with age!
2. Rana Daggubatti. He is good looking, needs to work on his expressions though.
3. Deepika Padukone. Super dancing, hot white dress and just gets hotter in each film!
4. Camera work. Superb shots - Goa never looked so amazing on film and Rohan Sippy has managed to capture the real essence…

No…never bye bai!

Today a friend’s status message on FB read: Just fired my bai and feels terrible. Replying in a few seconds to this, she said: Yes, and now I am the bai till I find one. That is a married woman’s reality. Doing the house chores without a bai at hand, is like living in a country whose economy just blew up to pieces.
Bai. Mai. Maid. We can’t do with them and cannot do without them. Yeah, go ahead and call this post an exaggeration but for most women (married or not) this is a home truth which dawns on us very soon. Whatever one wishes to say, they have some hypnotic power over us. We are always around them or pouring over their work at home. We are never happy and they don’t give a damn. Yet we are afraid to utter the ‘F’ word (in this case – FIRED). Wish we could have that kind of attitude towards our employers. Unlike bais, we are always worried of our job security, however much we slog our asses. We could still be fired but we cannot fire our bais for their tardiness.
With a regular m…

Little Outcast

Recently, while browsing at the Chroma Store at M2K, I chanced upon this weird looking creature. A beige pup, sitting by his little owner's leg, leash in hand. Sweet thing, my first thought. Yet it looked odd to me. I could not recognize the breed. At first glance it seemed like a Pomeranian. But its beige colored body baffled me.


Now I was super confused so I decided to walk up to the kid and his dog. By the time I got there, few others were already petting the little thing. The friendly pet licked my feet while I ruffled his ears. 


"Iska naam kya hai?" I asked


"Chunmun," said the boy


"Chunmun? Is kutte ka?" I asked (eyebrow raised)


"Haan...Chunmun," said the boy


That was a cute name but for a dog? Well not mine so I can't say much. 


"Kaun sa breed hai?"


"Didi yeh mix breed hai...Pomeranian aur Labrador ka mix hai!" equipped the boy.


A Pomeranian and a Lab. Yuck! I mean I love both the dogs but a mix breed? What kind of a lov…
