Rocket Singh, a film with all heart - @ TGV CAPSQUARE

Ranbir Kapoor plays Harpreet Singh Bedi, an idealistic young graduate who lands a sales job in a computer firm run by a boss who sets unrealistic targets for his team. His rose-tinted glasses come off early in the day as he watches receptionists being wooed for prompt appointments with busy managers, and security guards being bribed for information on rivals. For his own part, he stays strictly upright, going so far as to file a complaint against a client who wants his palm greased. That act of honesty, however, is rewarded with a demotion.
Convinced that a business can be run clean, Harpreet sets up his own company within the one he works for, roping in a handful of fellow colleagues as partners. Operating honestly and diligently, this team discreetly sets up a thriving business that eventually rivals the one they work for.
Rocket Singh touches a chord because it's that rare film that urges us to examine our lives and to question the rules by which we live it. It has a life-affirming quality that will appeal to every one of us who has ever hesitated before taking the easy way over the right way.
In the end, Rocket Singh is a clean, honest film with noble intentions. It requires patience to appreciate it fully, but deserves a viewing because films like this are hard to find. I'm going with three-and-a-half out of five and a thumbs up for director Shimit Amin's Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year; whatever else you do this weekend, don't miss this film.

[saibabanews] The Old Phone - A Must Read!

When I was quite young, my father had one of the first telephones in our
neighbourhood. I remember the polished, old case fastened to the wall. The
shiny receiver hung on the side of the box. I was too little to reach the
telephone, but used to listen with fascination when my mother talked to it.

Then I discovered that somewhere inside the wonderful device lived an
amazing person. Her name was "Information Please" and there was nothing she
did not know. Information Please could supply anyone's number and the
correct time.

My personal experience with the genie-in-a-bottle came one day while my
mother was visiting a neighbour. Amusing myself at the tool bench in the
basement, I whacked my finger with a hammer, the pain was terrible, but
there seemed no point in crying because there was no one home to give

I walked around the house sucking my throbbing finger, finally arriving at
the stairway. The telephone! Quickly, I ran for the footstool in the parlour
and dragged it to the landing. Climbing up, I unhooked the receiver in the
parlour and held it to my ear. "Information, please" I said into the
mouthpiece just above my head.
A click or two and a small clear voice spoke into my ear.

"Information. "

"I hurt my finger..." I wailed into the phone, the tears came readily enough
now that I had an audience.

"Isn't your mother home?" came the question.

"Nobody's home but me," I blubbered.

"Are you bleeding?" the voice asked.

"No," I replied. "I hit my finger with the hammer and it hurts."
"Can you open the icebox?" she asked.

I said I could.

"Then chip off a little bit of ice and hold it to your finger," said the

After that, I called "Information Please" for everything. I asked her for
help with my geography, and she told me where Philadelphia was. She helped
me with my math. She told me my pet chipmunk that I had caught in the park
just the day before, would eat fruit and nuts.

Then, there was the time Petey, our pet canary, died. I called, Information
Please," and told her the sad story. She listened, and then said things
grown-ups say to soothe a child. But I was not consoled. I asked her, "Why
is it that birds should sing so beautifully and bring joy to all families,
only to end up as a heap of feathers on the bottom of a cage?"

She must have sensed my deep concern, for she said quietly, " Wayne always
remember that there are other worlds to sing in."

Somehow I felt better.

Another day I was on the telephone, "Information Please."
"Information, " said in the now familiar voice. "How do I spell fix?" I

All this took place in a small town in the Pacific Northwest . When I was
nine years old, we moved across the country to Boston . I missed my friend
very much. "Information Please" belonged in that old wooden box back home
and I somehow never thought of trying the shiny new phone that sat on the
table in the hall. As I grew into my teens, the memories of those childhood
conversations never really left me.

Often, in moments of doubt and perplexity I would recall the serene sense of
security I had then. I appreciated now how patient, understanding, and kind
she was to have spent her time on a little boy.

A few years later, on my way west to college, my plane put down in Seattle .
I had about a half-hour or so between planes. I spent 15 minutes or so on
the phone with my sister, who lived there now. Then without thinking what I
was doing, I dialled my hometown Operator and said, "Information Please."

Miraculously, I heard the small, clear voice I knew so well.
"Information. "

I hadn't planned this, but I heard myself saying, "Could you please tell me
how to spell fix?"

There was a long pause. Then came the soft spoken answer, "I guess your
finger must have healed by now."

I laughed, "So it's really you," I said. "I wonder if you have any idea how
much you meant to me during that time?"

I wonder," she said, "if you know how much your call meant to me. I never
had any children and I used to look forward to your calls."

I told her how often I had thought of her over the years and I asked if I
could call her again when I came back to visit my sister.

"Please do", she said. "Just ask for Sally."

Three months later I was back in Seattle . A different voice answered
"Information. " I asked for Sally.

"Are you a friend?" she said.

"Yes, a very old friend," I answered.

"I'm sorry to have to tell you this," she said. "Sally had been working
part-time the last few years because she was sick. She died five weeks ago."

Before I could hang up she said, "Wait a minute, did you say your name was
Wayne ?" "Yes." I answered.

"Well, Sally left a message for you. She wrote it down in case you called.
Let me read it to you."
The note said, "Tell him there are other worlds to sing in.
He'll know what I mean."

I thanked her and hung up. I knew what Sally meant.

Never underestimate the impression you may make on others.

Whose life have you touched today?

Lifting you on eagle's wings. May you find the joy and peace you long for.

Life is a journey ... NOT a guided tour. So don't miss the ride and have a
great time going around you don't get a second shot at it.

I loved this story and just had to pass it on. I hope you enjoy it and get a
blessing from it just as I did ...

Sairam dear family,
This beautiful email so touched me I had to share it with you! Have a blessed day!
with love and light,

The Ugly Truth

Uptight girl meets jaded guy, some people might feel they know how it's going to end, but why worry whether that's right or not? However it's going to end, the trip to get there is Hysterical. Some of the situations are so funny you can hardly hear the actors for your own laughter. Kathryn Heigl was perfect for this role, and Gerry Butler is completely charming, as always, even when his character is being outrageous, with a charisma that just won't quit. And the dance scene...whew. Just buy the movie if you want to laugh, love, and feel good for a while.

The Hangover

3 friends search for the groom after a wild bachelor party that they don't remember. There's also a chicken, blow up doll, tiger and a baby in their motel room. The movie was so funny that I was hoping they'd never find their friend, I didn't want it to end. Bradley Cooper (Yes Man), Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis work great together and are great fun. The movie itself is also great fun and hilarious. Galifianakis' plays the grooms soon to be Brother in-law who's incredibly strange and not all there. He's very funny and steals the show. Everyone else was in top form too though. Just see this movie, it's the funniest of the year so far.

Julie & Julia (2009)

I loved this movie. I have Julia Child's French cookbooks, I am a French teacher, I love to cook, and I love French culture so this movie was right up my alley. It was funny and interesting. I thought Meryl Streep and Amy Adams did a wonderful job as well as their "husbands". I enjoyed both of the story lines of their lives. It held my attention the entire time and was funnier than I expected. I can't wait for the DVD to come out so I can watch it again - alamanda

Four Christmases

"Four Christmases" is a pretty funny holiday film. Vaughn and Witherspoon are two likeable, funny leads. A star-studded supporting cast keeps the humor coming as well. The humor is of the squirmy, uncomfortable kind. You feel bad for these two as they are forced to deal with their families. This is an entertaining film for fans of holiday movies. If you are in the mood for something Christmassy, check it out.
