My personal space where I scribble whatever funny thoughts come to my mind. Actually, that is not entirely true. A lot of random thoughts enter and leave my mind all the time and the blog contains only a largely drilled down and censored subset of them.
Also, there are reviews of certain movies that have fascinated the viewer in me.
I would say the time you spent here would not be regretted.

Movie Review : Rock On 2
Title : Rock On 2 Language : Hindi Year : 2016 Director : Shujaat Saudagar Genre : Drama, Musical IMDB Link Watch trailer on Youtube Lead Role : Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab Kohli, Sraddha Kapoor, Prachi Desai
Rock On had succeeded because it
had caught the attention of the youth with its pulsating music and cool ideals.
Rock On had succeeded because it had portrayed in an intense and realistic
manner. Rock On had ended where Magic had begun, or rejoined after a hiatus.
Some years passed by. What happened to Aditya Shroff, Jo, Sakshi, Debby and
Killer Drummer? Welcome to Rock On 2.
Rock On 2 begins the show in the
serene and mystical villages of Shillong where Aditya leads a rather reclusive life
after something went wrong a few years back. (Yeah that’s the same way he
reacted after fighting with his friends In Rock On! That’s the way he is. He tries
to run away from problems.) The friends do meet occasionally. Sing songs and
all that stuff. We are also shown the interaction between be a wannabe musician
Uday and the introverted, talented Jia. As the story progresses, music happens.
A discussion of Rock On! series is
nothing without mentioning its music. Unlike the prequel, the composers have
not gone for an all-out rock show. Rather,
we are introduced to soulful tunes emerging from different cultural demographics.
(Ishq Mastana, Hoi Kiw). Still, my personal favorite ‘Woh Jahan’ holds a
special place in the movie.
Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Purab
Kohli, Sraddha Kapoor, Prachi Desai and many others have delivered a neat
performance. Frames are full of north east beauty.
Rock On 2 may not enjoy a similar
success because viewers may compare it with its prequel, which could be called
a coming of age classic. Rock On 2 may not enjoy a similar success because the
viewers, still under the influence of ‘Bulleya’ or ‘Break Up Song’ have not
emoted very well with ‘Jaago’ or ‘Tere Mere Dil’ as much as they had with ‘Tum
Ho Toh’ or ‘Sinbad the Sailor’. Rock On 2 may not enjoy a similar success
because the current demonetization issues may keep a portion of viewers away
from theaters at least for a while. Rock On 2 may not enjoy a similar success a
set of narrow minded, blind set of ignorant people is trying to tarnish the
movie because of dirty politics allegedly because the producers Farhan and
Ritesh said they would not oblige to that goon vigilante Raj Thackeray and his
Personally, I loved the film. At
the end of the day, that’s all what matters to me. (Of course Rock On! Was a
There’s a scene where a character
says “Market me jo bhikhtha he who banta he dil ka tune”. (What sells becomes
our favorites). Just felt like mentioning it here.
Title : The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari Language : Silent Movie Year : 1920 Director : Robert Wiene Genre : Horror IMDB Link Watch movie on YouTube Lead Role : Friedrich Feher, Werner Krauss The movie is widely acknowledged as one of the landmark revolutionary offerings from the long gone era when movies did not speak.

The doctor awakens him, and he answers questions asked by the spectators. To the horror of the locals, his prophecies comes true. Mean
Planet Perillamus An excited Ethoruthan broadcasted his findings to the Inter Universe Lifeform Detection Council. ‘I have discovered life on another planet.’ ‘Oh not again, Mx Ethoruthan!’, the Chairman of the council, Dan Maraman, shot back.‘ This is the eleventh time you are making such a claim over the last six months. How many missions have we launched to verify your claim - and have even one bore any result? These voyages are damn expensive, you know.’ ‘Please hear me out, Mx Maraman! This is not like the previous cases. I have proof.’ ‘What proof?’ Senior agent Thengaenthu was intrigued. ‘Do I have permission to present my thoughts to the council?’ Ethoruthan asked Maraman, Dan. ‘Yeah! You may.’ the Chairman relented warily. ‘Okay here is the interesting part. The life forms on this planet have devised something called movies - where some of them write unreal descriptions about unreal persons, and someone else would behave like those unreal persons. These behaviors would be re
You might have come across this joke that has been doing rounds for years now. Let me tell it to you nevertheless. It unfurls in a classroom, where the teacher is conducting an exam. The students are to write an essay on coconut trees. (What other topic to write on in a state named after coconut trees!) While all the kids went gaga over it, Veer was yet to write a word. Veer was not from the state named after coconut trees, and he knew scant about those. This is not to imply that his was a gone case. He decided to make up for his lack of knowledge in coconuts by leveraging his extensive knowledge about cows. This is how we wrote his essay: Coconut trees are good trees. We have a coconut tree in our backyard. My uncle ties our cow to the coconut tree in the afternoon. The cow gives us milk everyday. My uncle loves our cow very much... In a system that rewards on the basis of the number of words written rather than the sense it carries, Veer passed the test in flying colors. He later hel
