New Year, Old Me (Mostly)

Welcome 2017. Happy New Year to you.

2016 was an eventful year. It was bad for some, worse for some and few lucky ones enjoyed it too… but one thing that I am sure of is that 2016 didn’t had any dull moment. It was a year of ups and downs; unpredictable and unimaginable things becoming reality, and some insanity coming into existence. This may or may not be a little pointy finger towards Trump’s win.

2016 was the year of Hermit, and it turns out to be true to its nature. A true Hermit it was, especially for me on a personal and professional level. A lot of introspection. A lot of things which were deep down and buried inside in me, surfaced out and were slapped on my face again and again, until I dealt with them. Insane, right?

It was a year of awakening and realization.

If you went through some self-realization or some major upheaval last year, then you could be among the few lucky ones. Your life most probably is changing for the better. 2017 being year belonging to Wheel of Fortune; your destiny may have something better for you this year. Take it as a reward for all the crap you dealt with last year. Or, if you are like me, enjoy every moment; be it sorrow or joy.

If you think that I am going to unload whole Tarot or spirituality stuff all over you… no-no, no such intention. Although I may try that in some other post… well, I love to scare people.

For me, it was a year of observation. I was just a witness and observing, as all who were/are around me went through some major life S#@t last year. Every person I connected with last year went through such major life crisis; it was horrible to even think of the pain they must have gone through. It was hard for me too. Especially when you see your loved ones, your relatives, your friends, and some strangers who turned friends; go through painful life moments, and you are just standing there trying to think of saying something which will help soothe their pain, or give them a right direction. I tried my best, but kind words are not enough sometimes. I wish I could have a magic wand…. Coming to think of it, even if I will have a magic wand, I may not change anything. One thing that I have understood in past 2 years is that each person must go through his own s#!t in order to grow. No one else can do it for you. we can just share some kind words and be there when you need someone to talk to. You must do it on your own. One promise from me is that you won’t be alone.

Another promise, I will not change. Well, I will improve, but I will not change myself. I have reached a point where I am happy with the way I am, with everything in me. So, in 2017 too, my focus will be only on learning new things and improving myself, not to change anything in me. If you are not happy with the way I am now… well good luck waiting for me to change.

Happy 2017. Love you. ❤

Tuesday Talkies – Happy New Year

One thing that I admire most after watching Farah and Sajid Khan‘s movies now is the time when we used to have David Dhawan and Govinda’s duo. Somehow they look more sensible and intelligent filmmakers than this younger lot. Thanks Farah, if it was not for you I could have never understood the talent of David Dhawan.

tumblr_static_1uw0odiesc9w0ow0s8wow4swo_1280_v2Happy New Year‘ is the recent blockbuster Bollywood movie which is a joint venture of Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.

It stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Jackie Shroff. Phew!!! List of all A star celebrities wasted in this pakao movie.

Interesting thing about this movie is that it’s not a crap movie. It should have been, but it’s not totally crap and some of this credit goes to Abhishek Bachchan for his comic timing and ease of character playing. His role is not etched out perfectly but still he  manages to bring out few laughs out of you, specially in his somewhat full monty scene. 😛

Other than him, everyone is damn disappointed by this predictable melodrama movie.  What surprised me more is that story is based on a dance comepetion and movie is directed by a dance director, still you will not witness single dance sequence which you can remember after watching this movie. What Farah?? 😦

One more thing, if you are looking for a story, first go and watch previous movies of SRK and Farah and also some random 100  Bollywood movies, and you will have all the dialogues and infact whole screenplay of this film.  😛 This is the originality of Farah Khan.
