TV se, Theatre se!

Today I slept after coming from office, at around 6. Got up at 9:49 . Cooked something, ate while watching Satte pe Satta on TV and retired to my room. Missed "Ye Rishta Kya Kehlaata Hai" (YRKKH) on Star, a "fooper" irritating serial otherwise; which i have been following very religiously offlate. It spans around an arranged marriage..before, through and after. Most of the characters are sugary sweet and far from reality. The female lead is overtly coy and docile, and the guy is even more irritating. The other bhaiyya, bhabhis and all add to the "Yuck" quotient of the show...BUT i still watch it...have been following it for past 3 months now i guess..:).
Some shows are outstanding, so well made that you watch them for the sheer joy of brilliance they exude!!. and some shows are just 1/.....YRKKH is one of them... when i started watching it i found it so non watchable that i was like...WTF man!!..kya crap hai...kuch bhi bana diya hai...but then..i guess some shows are so bad that u want to watch them, to see that how can something be so yuck!!...I watch it everyday, from Mon to Thurs, just to see ki audience ke patience ka serial makers kitna test le sakte hain...:O (might sound weird..but then these are just Wonderful thoughts of the Weird Me..lol)
I saw Kameeney this weekend, Vishal Bharadwaj ne bade itmenaan se Mumbai ki baarish mein 1 movie banayi hai...no need to say its yet another outstanding work by him!!...Movie dekh ke aisa laga ki the director has actually made the movie for himself, jo achcha laga, jaise best laga..bana diya....ab agar aap similar taste rakhte hain to most welcome..aaiye..dekhiye aur tareef kijiye....varna ghar baith ke YRKKH types serials dekhiye..:D (thank God VB has an awsum taste and sense of movie making; needless to say max junta would admire it!!)
Shahid as Charlie is AWFUM!!!... hats off to him for making that speech defect sound so SEXY and natural!! I loved the last seen where he is standing on the terrace of some building with that God forbidden guitar and says "ye duniya faali H********** hai aur tum faale k***** fab Kameeney"!!. The dialogue has been delivered in such an amazing manner..1 dum single screen 40 rs vaale theatre mein seeti bajane types ..:))
Piggy Chopps is another attraction in the movie, kya to acting kari hai ladki ne...her expressions, dialogue delivery is just next to perfection!!. I zimply loved her in these two scenes....
1. When she is coaxing Shahid to marry her.....i guess every girl can see some bit of herself in Sweety in that particular scene, how we use that as the last weopon sometimes, to get a favor ..when we know ki saamne vaala maan hi nahi raha ab to..:))..All of us must have used this coaxing with our parents, siblings, friends at some point or the other....:)
2. And second is the award winning expression after she has delivered twins!!...APT is the word...that one expression summarizes all the pain, trauma, torture one would go through while delivering a baby; no amount of words can match it!!
Baaki, needless to say, the movie has awsum music. Mr VB roxx!!...I read somewhere that he has played cricket for UP in the under 19 category!!....bade medhaavi jaan padte hain ye sajjan!!..1 mitra ne inki nayi aane vaali movie Ishqiya ka trailor bheja, looks quite promising!!
Khair this was Kameeney, and with this now i have kind of mastered the art of watching a movie alone...:)...badi independent si feeling hoti hai...:)...
Doordarshan completes 50 glorious years in 2009. This weekend would try putting down some memories of our journey with DD till 1994. (Since 1995 jab se cable laga hai ghar pe, DD dekhne ka mauka laga nahi hai).
PS: Is post ko likhte samay yah geet youtube be bajaya jaa raha tha....:)
cheers..:)

10 people have something to say...:

दूरदर्शन की याद दिला के बडे पुराने मुदे उखाड दिये हैं तुमने, आजकल की हाय-बाय जेनरेशन का क्या पता कि क्या था दूरदर्शन हमारे लिये...
१) शाम को पांच बजे गोल गोल घूमते दूरदर्शन के लोगो के साथ टूँ टूँ टु टु...के साथ दूरदर्शन का शुरुआत, ५:३० पर कृषि दर्शन के साथ बीच में लोकगीत...
२) शाम को चित्रहार, समाचार (वेद प्रकाश, अवनीश कौर सरीन, सरला माहेश्वरी, सलमा सुल्ताना आदि), फ़िर रात को नौ बजे टी.वी सीरियल्स...
३) नीम का पेड, मिर्जा गालिब, पलाश के फ़ूल, तहकीकात, व्योमकेश बक्शी, मोगली, सिग्मा, डक टेल्स, टेल्स्पिन, शक्तिमान (हाँ हम १२ वी क्लास में भी इसे देखते थे)
४) जब ४-६ क्लास में थे, तो दोपहर को १२-२ के बीच में आधे आधे घंटे के ४ प्रोग्राम आते थे।
५) उसके बाद क्लास ९-११ के बीच में....शान्ति (हमेशा अशान्त रहती थी), औरत, अपराजिता, इतिहास (शायद एकता कपूर का था), वक्त की रफ़्तार..
६) और उससे पहले जुनून (शायद पहला सीरियल था जिसमें ब्रेक आता था, जूनून आफ़्टर द ब्रेक, अभी तक याद है)....

खैर अब क्या क्या लिखें....

The review itself is as interesting as the movie. But one has to see the blogger mimic these acts herself. They are probably even better than the movie.
Deepti: VB is looking for an assistant...!!!

brilliant review!

I have already told you what I think about this practice of trying to fathom the depths of human stupidity by watching Star Plus soaps and India TV news :)
Btw, I too saw Ishqiya trailer. Looks very very promising. That would be a movie one would definitely not want to watch with one's parents :P Really looking forward to it. I missed Kameeney and can't imagine myself going for a movie alone. Appreciate your courage and grit :)
