The hell with film critics and their snobby reviews ( come on fellas,Sarkar Raj sucks!), 'Mera Baap , Pehle Aap' was just the most perfect film to watch on Father's Day - yup, i fell right into the trap..... went to a fancy lunch at Frangipani (divine filtered light, superb whole wheat pizzas), and felt like we were all auditioning for KJo's next - it's all about loving your family , and all that mush. The lunch went on till 5pm ( fuelled by virgin Mojitos, if you please ), making it the perfect moment to go giggle - what better than through an unpretentious Priya- darshan film with an idiotic title. Loved it!Laughed my head off. Ate too much popcorn (yes, even after that whole wheat pizza) and generally felt good about life. If a movie can make anyone feel like that, it can't be all that bad, right? As for that new wench called Genelia ( honey, take my advice and change your name, it sounds too much like a female sexual organ), she is utterly delightful. I'm hoping and praying she doesn't turn all filmy and sexy. She is refreshingly young , innocent and unspoilt at present. Akshay Khanna was adorable... but the most amazing performance came from Archana Puran Singh. I suspect her inspiration was Mayawati.
I am off to Hyderabad at dawn. May or may not post for the next two days. I love the city. And plan to come back with a handi of biryani and mirchi ka salan. Till then, miss me!
