Gosh!How very rude of me! The first thing I should have done on my return to matrubhoomi is to thank you guys. Pourquoi?? Welllllll.... for running such a super efficient news agency! The updates were fantastic! Far better than catching up with stale news from a gigantic pile of old newspapers. I took one look at the heap carefully kept aside for me and decided to stay miles away. Stale news is even worse than a stale samosa. What were those newswallas going to tell me that I didn't already know .... from all of you.... masala included?? Having acknowledged my sincere gratitude.... let's move on.
D-Day or SRK- day is upon us. I am told the city is 'tense', but frankly, I don't have a sense of that at all. I am hazarding a guess - nothing too dramatic is likely to happen tomorrow when the film opens to the public. Some ritualistic dagad-phek, a few torn posters, perhaps a lathi charge. Then it will be back to business as usual - big business. Early reviews suggest a mega hit in the offing. I'm sure both Kaajol and Srk have delivered top class performances. And KJO is a master of the 4-hankie weepie. Full paisa vasool. As to who blinks first.... who cares? It is not a national calamity, merely an ego clash between super egoistical people. The sky isn't about to fall down, folks. So.... relax.
Am I going to risk my skull to watch the movie - first day, first show? Hell, no. Maatha kharab na ki? as the Bongs would say.
All in good time. Don't feel like holding forth on the subject across channels either. Vikram, Sonali, Karan..... I love you. But....kinda sick of the whole naatak. Apologise or don't, yaar. Just stop yakking so much.
The movie I really want to watch is 'Nine'. I hear Penelope Cruz is super delicious in it. But then, can she be anything less??
But as and when I do watch, " My name is Guts..." I shall rush to my laptop and 'do the needful'.
