CHEENI CUM

Cheeni Kum is a movie about two adults finding happiness and compatibility very late in life.Neena is a 34 yr old girl who comes to London to her friend. She is unmarried as so far she didnt find anyone to her liking, and Buddha dev is a 64 yr old man, single, over confident in his profession and rigid in his attitude. The movie is all about how they meet, and Neena;s presence changes everything in Buddha;s life,his nature-he becomes kind & understanding,starts looking after his health and all that.It was inevitable that they fall in love over few meetings and now its the turn of age difference to become a villain in their love story. Though it takes the form of her father,of course they conquer everything in the end but the treatment is very fresh.And paresh Rawal, johra sehgal and sexy, all make this journey unforgettable, they are all superb, though the director has gone overboard sometimes with some scenes of Amitabh bacchan trying show his stamina and sexy also is quite a precocious child. but all in all a very enjoyble movie with a fresh perspective--that in life meeting of minds is very important and if u can manage the financial part also, then a quality life of 5 yrs is more important than 50 yrs of waste.

This is a serial which is on air on SAB TV, its all abour army academy and its functioning in today;s world, what with corruption, politics and self interests taking over everything everywhere. But amidst all this there is always hope in the form of some cadets,a brigadier and a captain. I love the characters of Captain Abhimanyu, cadet Huda and gunny ustad. Its all very interesting, I just wish and hope that in real life also there are some people like them.
One thing I am always unable to understand how the TRP is counted, because practiacally I have rarely seen anybody praising Ekta kapoor;s serials but they always get the highest TRP.
In this serial treatment is very realistic, there are no girls wearing embroidered saris, full jwellery and make up in hospitals or Doctors in straight hairs, or palatial houses, nothing like that but still they all look good.

shahid & kareena

Initially when I heard of rumours of Shahid Kareena split, I thought of them just as rumours,they were too cute a couple to think otherwise. But now when its a reality and I think rationally then I realise that it was inevitable, as both are poles apart in their temperament. Whereas Shahid is a very simple ,vegan, shy,middleclass boy rooted in his ground, Kareena is a very arogant,bigmouth,nonvegetarian(though she became veg for that period) upperclass girl.And in bollywood where even marriages are always falling like nine pins, so a breakup is not very big thing.Hopefully Shahid will get a girl he deserves, while kareena is already with Saif.
