Om Shanti Om Rocks!!

King Khan proves it yet again!! He's the unbeatable prince of Bollywood. SRK's new venture, Om Shanti Om is yet another thriller with picture perfect scenes and Indians get a new sensational beauty to their actress List- Deepika Padukone.

Yesterday was a bad day to begin with.I was stuck in a traffic jam for the first time after coming here. Reached class late. Came to know that an exam that was scheduled for the day has been postponed. Immediate plans were made then and there. Upon enquiry, we received the reply that tickets for the matinee show of Om Shanti Om have been already sold out.

Hence we decided to watch Sawariya.Came out of the theatre half way in the film, I just could not bear the melodrama. Perhaps its not the type I would prefer to be a viewer of!! Rahul and me, started off immediately to the next theatre in the vicinity where O.S.O was being screened and unfortunately we had to satisfy ourselves with the front row tickets costing Rs.15. There were about 12 of us and we set in for the screening, eagerly waiting for the first glimpse of Deeepika.

The movie turned out to be hilarious and our joy had no bounds. We danced near the white screen for every song of the movie and it was my first experience tapping my feet in front of such a large crowd( though I wouldn't bet my chances on having been noticed ;) ! )

The movie has a song that shows 32 superstars of Indian Cinema, past and present. Here's a pic from the song..

Didn't realise the time flying by and soon we were out and moving to the next theatre.Yes, believe me, we were on a movie marathon last night. Settled in for Tamil Superstar Vijay's "Azhagiya Tamil Magan".This movie made me remember the earlier RajaniKant movies, contributing their stunt scenes and songs.Story seemed to be a distant image of a Hollywood movie I had seen long back but the screenplay by the Ilayathalapathi Vijay( Ilaya means junior and Thalapathi refers to Rajanikant, I suppose) makes this movie good enough to sit and watch for the 3 hours.

We were out of the theatre at 0030 hours(he he, a military touch!). I hadn't had my lunch nor dinner for the day and was hungry enough to eat up anything that wouldn't bite me back!! Roamed in the city searching for a hotel to be open this late in the night and having not found any, settled with two glasses of sweet tap water, apologising to my tummy for my negligence.

We all slept together in the hostel "Chandra Villa", better known in the campus as "Compsciz Hub". Woke up early in the morning(9a.m), and returned home.

Jobs for the Day:
1. Brush.
2.Have food.
3.Do a bit of studies for the day and for the internals coming up next week.
4.Write up an article for my brother's assignment on Indian Politics.
5.Sleep in between if time permits.
6.Call up pals and chat for hours.

P.S: To all of you out there.. Happy Diwali...

buzzing off,

I wuz quite amazed to see u dancing in front of a huge crowd( a lil weirdly also)...!!
Pity ourselves on the ill-luck of gettin stuck for Saawariya.. Anyway the movie wuz well shot, set wuz brilliant.. but only thing it is more of a drama or stage show than a movie

That 32 star song doesnt hav Abishek, Ash, Aamirkhan,Bipasha,John,Imraan hasmi,...

Appreciate u on some ur cool usages ..!

Feeling much more jealousy..
I too feel like dancing in theater. And loitering in the city in the midnight.

Anyway, I could have 'paratta' from a 'pandi lorry drivers' hotel at morning 2.30 during our trip. Satisfied with that..:)

So... OM shanti OM should be watched..

Devidas said...

@hail stone,
food is a damn matter of concern for me, as you may be knowing very well enough.
and i do remember the instance at that hotel where from we all were finally kicked out politely.
