Today’s i-Pod generation doesn’t have much appetite for the drama that once got the kerchiefs out. Now, it only gets the i-Pods out... HOLD ON.. i am putting forward my view of this latest Yash Raj Films to hit the Screens last Friday.

Surinder Sahni (Shahrukh) returns to his town Amritsar with a reluctant bride Taani. She was set to marry another man who died in an accident on the day of the wedding and a twist of events made her take saat phere with Surinder instead.

The two make an odd match. She is a good-looking Punjabi kudi with suppressed jubilance, and he – in his full sleeve shirts and loose pants over sports shoes – is as ordinary and clumsy as a man could be. Even though Surinder loves her, he doesn’t express it to Taani, hoping that she will slowly start loving the movie to see what happens will really love it.

SRK's latest release RAB NE BANA DI JODI is definitely special not just because of its extraordinary story and Aditya Chopra being at the helm of affairs but also because it features a beautiful medley song of with 5 dazzling beauties of Bollywood – Kajol, Bipasaha Basu, Lara Dutta, Preity Zinta and Rani Mukherji. It is one of the highlights of the film.The medley is sung by Sonu Nigam and composed by Salim–Suleiman & Jaideep Sahni. It shows Shah Rukh paying tribute to yesteryear actors like Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna, Shammi Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor by dancing on their respective chart busters. The medley (a dream sequence song in the film) starts with Kajol & Shah Rukh Khan in THE RAJ KAPOOR & NARGIS style with 1950's hit song 'Pyaar Hua Ikraar hua...' The screen just lightens up to see SRK & Kajol sharing the same screen space.

Thought for the Day

Some say knowledge is valuable, but character is more valuable than knowledge. One may be a learned scholar, one may hold high positions of authority, one may be very wealthy or be an eminent scientist but if one has no character, all the other acquisitions are of no use at all. Sacrifice, love, compassion and forbearance are the sterling human qualities that should be fostered, shedding jealousy, hatred, ego and anger which are animal qualities.- Baba

Raaz Part 2- Music Review

There were four questions raised at the beginning of this reviews for which the respective answers are: a) The music of Raaz - 2 indeed impresses, b) The soundtrack here is yet another good addition to the enviable music catalogue of the Bhatts and c) Emraan would certainly have some more chartbusters to add to his name. As for the last question i.e. whether Raaz - 2 matches up to Nadeem-Shravan's Raaz, then well, let's put it this way that albums like Aashique, Raaz or a Saajan are made only once and there shouldn't even be a conscious effort to replicate or surpass them. In this regard, the music of Raaz -2 has its own place under the sun and what matters in the end is whether it works for the film or not. Well, the answer for this one is a firm Yes!

Just a thought...

Suppose the average human life in today's world is not more than 60 years. If you analyse the break-up of activities associated with these 60 years of your life, you can see that it more or less matches with the following:
12 Years in Working
22 Years in Sleeping
04 Years in Routine Travelling
05 Years in Eating
03 Years in Bathing, Dressing etc...
06 Years in Useless Chatting, Gossip
04 Years in Sickness & Illness
Balance ?
Only 4 Years..
Our only question to one and all is, why should mankind think, involve in activities that result in sufferings, terror, hatred, fighting, killings etc... in the short span of 4 years left to them. It needs to be utilized in a better way by doing all good things, helping others and thanking God for the opportunity given to us in being a human being... be thank full to the Lord
