Ghanchakkar, Fukrey & Bhag Milkha Bhag

People who went to watch Ghanchakkar came our really disappointed. Everyone has one common thing to say - its trailer is all the fun and entertainment that this movie has to offer as a whole. I'm not surprised. That's what is happening for most of the movies in recent times. A song or two, a couple of trailers and you know that you are well past what the director feels you are entitled for your share of entertainment.
Luckily I've not seen this movie yet, I would have if I had not been following my twitter/facebook feed closely. And also for the fact that I had been to a movie marathon in newly opened PVR cinema last weekend itself.

I guess Fukrey was a really good watch as it did not promise to offer something but crazy kind-of slapstick comedy. That the music was good and interestingly mixed well in the plot is something of an unexpected gift from the director/producer. It had its lows and highs but overall a good watch, specially if you are watching it with people your age.

I'm looking forward to Bhag Milkha Bhag at this moment. It's music is very catchy, trailer is very catchy and I'm a die-hard fool to have faith in capabilities of some actor directors.

I'm disappointed with the way whatsapp behaves on my Lumia 800,
and with the increased tariff from Airtel for the broadband that has become a continuous source of entertainment and knowledge,
and with the false alarms that rains are playing in Bangalore,
and with the capsicum bun that I just ate and now feel like puking,
and with the way unread emails keep increasing in my email,
and with the count of todos in my mind,
and with the increasing number of people I've to keep happy,
and with the increasing number of people I've to not make sad,
and with the pace of my learning to become a good driver,
and with the dents that spoil the beauty of my car,
and with the way my photography is improving,
and with the speed at which I've written this blog, or the frequency of posts
and with the fact that this list is never ending.

All I can think of now is this song called Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve.

Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life.
Trying to make ends meet, trying to find some money then you die.
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah.
No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change,
but I'm here in my mold, I am here in my mold.
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
