I fear to move around the
city at night. The streets late at night will see mostly boozed up men, late
night party fellows rushing back home, tired truck drivers getting the liberty
on the lonely streets to move about as they like, some bikers who love to
perform stunts, some speedy drivers who want to fulfill their hearts desire to
accelerate their cars and zoom past the wind and then the most dangerous of
all, the anti-socials.

The title of the film does
create interest in the minds of the people of Delhi. The plot revolves around a
group of theatre artists, the leader of the group is Moulik, role played by
Anuj Saxena. This is all about the struggling artists who want to get a strong
foothold in the field of theatre.
I think this time, the 2014
General elections is making a lot of noise all around. Whether you are in
politics, like to discuss about politics, have no liking about politics, simply
hate politics, you cannot be spared from the entire hullabaloo about it.
Read this link here. It
made me sad, at first brought tears of sadness and then of joy. A little
difference can bring in a smile and cheer to those lives who has not seen
colours on them for so many years.
This day of colours brings
so much passion in the lives of each and every Indian. The different colours
make all the difference when they are splashed one on the other and such
vibrant combination is the result.
Hop, skip and jump. Time is
giving no space for a hop or a skip but straight it says, “Jump yaar jump”.
Will seem prejudiced if I say this is true. But really Time is having own
affair and no place for a small soul like me. It is taking its flight, and the
speed…I can’t catch up sometimes.
Holi has come up. It seems
just like yesterday the Kite-flying festival, the Paush Sankranti, has not left
its mark. Colourful kites flying around in the space of the blue sky. What a
hue. Terrific and nostalgic to watch small colours adorning the sky sometimes
the red on the left and then blue flies in. The yellow gleefully moving up and
the green and pink one feeling shy to go near the purple one. Some brave one’s
going too close and simply cutting the other to drift away and not come back.
Kites playing their own game…no gender game…but a common one. And the human
hand doing all the tricks.
Someone wished me, “Happy
Women’s Day”. He was smiling as he said the words. I thought, was it a taunt or
a rendition from the heart? I say this is a rendition, as the words sailed into
my ears there was a soft musical touch.
Maybe, I’m being too
touchy. He must have had no intention to hurt me.
Money is Mantra for some,
Need for many and necessity for All. That’s what I like to say about Money.
Present day some -- maybe
can say many or even more people are getting very attached to money.
Money comes to us in the
form of coins and notes which we have to keep safely. The size, shape and designs
of the coins have changed over the years, so also currency notes have got some
changes brought in them. How does that matter as long as the value remains the
same for the different denominations?
Is it confusing? Hah! C is
there, so Confusing can be there, after all beginning with C.
But if I’m to start, I say
C for Cat. That’s what baby Guddi was learning from her mother. Mother was
saying, “C for Cat, repeat after me,” and Guddi was religiously following her
mother’s words like chanting some mantras.
Guddi, the two and a half
year old daughter of Mr & Mrs Sood. Mother, a homemaker, having good
educational qualifications, but prefers to stay at home for her daughter.
Gunday under the Yasraj Films banner kicks-off with the plot of the making of
Bangladesh. Along with the violence and the horror of the early 70s prevalent
in Bengal, the film brings in the story set during the formation of the new
country. It is about two young boys who have suffered losses and are left with
themselves and moved into Calcutta as refugees.
Imtiaz Ali has
shown courage to do a film with an unusual story, as is his style, not common
in Bollywood. This film is more of a travel story with many twists and turns.
The story opens
with the preparations on for the marriage of Veera Tripathy (Alia Bhatt) who is
a young girl from a very rich family. She is a happy-go-lucky character. Just
before the marriage day, she slips out of her house at night with her to-be
husband. She wants to travels the lonely roads like a free bird, enjoying the
wind and the fresh air around. But she is kidnapped at a gas station on the
outskirts of the city by a gang whose leader is Mahabir Bhati (Randeep Hooda),
who were there to loot the gas station.
