MBKD vs. SBAG

In the past couple of days I saw Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Sahib Biwi aur Gangster. The difference between the two films is massive! MBKD comes under the biggest ever production house with Shiela in it along with Imran Khan [highly pampered and promoted by his own Mamu]. Whereas SBAG falls under a very small banner. As you can see, I don’t even know the name of the production house. The cast of the movie is also famous only for small budget films unlike Shiela and Pappu. The storyline of MBKD seems to be one of the standard scripts. On the other SBAG had a strong storyline and kept its viewers intact till the end. Not at all predictable.

Mahie Gill, Jimmy Shergill, and Randeep Hooda; I’m flabbergasted at their acting skills. All three brandished a very controlling and dynamic presence on the screen. Even the extra characters got the opportunity to flaunt their acting skills to the highest degree. Mahie gave the goose bumps with her maniac-ness. She holds no chance in front of many of our A-list actresses but she has proved her strong hold in the industry with her competent acting skills. If Shiela can win million hearts with her patli kamaria; Mahie can enchant the public with her dialogue delivery. Pappu started his career under the production of Aamir Khan and the movie was a super hit for obvious reasons. However, not every struggler in B’town is born with a golden spoon. For example: Jimmy Shergill; he climbed the ladder with enormous hurdles but he sure has a firm foot in the industry. SBAG proved his potential and excellent acting skills. The same goes for Randeep Hooda; his suave look and passion for ‘Biwi’ was par excellence. Personal opinion: Him and Sush sure made a steamy couple! *wink wink*

Back to MBKD; well except for the songs the movie didn’t do justice at all. These days Katrina Kaif has only become a product which can be sold in songs. She may not be able to act but she sure can make the country dance on her tunes. Main do dhaari talwaar yaar…

‘Bol’ – a Pakistani film

I feel ‘Bol-less’ after watching this movie. I wanted to dedicate one of my article’s to this movie. Since the movie is directed by a Pakistani; comprehending the dialect was a challenge. Several times, I had to rewind some scenes and other times I just gave up. Nevertheless, I was able to fathom the purpose of this direction. For those who haven’t watched it yet, I won’t give away the entire movie. Giving birth to a girl is considered the biggest disappointment in many countries. Even today, I personally know few families who only and only believe in raising a boy instead of a girl. In an era where technology has advanced to its highest level and girls have proved them-selves to be no less than a man… WHY girls are considered a problem to a family? Can you name me one such thing which a man can do and a girl can’t? I bet you can’t come up with even a single answer.

Why is a woman forced to deliver babies one after another and asked to stop after a boy? It seems like it has become a culture to have a boy in the family, whatsoever. Why do we acknowledge such culture? Is it because we live in a male dominated society? I assume that the male dominated society is misconstrued about the woman power. Woman power does not mean that women’s want to reign over the world and defeat the men. It simply means that, “she can attain a top class education; she can financially support a family; she can protect herself; she can run a family; she can win the election; she can own a business; she can go to space; she can learn karate; she can hike to Mt. Everest; and she can ‘rebel’, if required!” So, why do we have gender discrimination in this world?

Another issue which gets me infuriated is the practice of polygamy in this world. Again, this makes the male society more dominating. From where do men get this authority to marry more than one woman? Is it just because they are male and hold some sort of natural power to control the world? Women would never think of practicing such notorious and heinous act. Then why do men? And why is it even allowed? Is to prove the fact that men are superior in this world…!? Such wrongdoings constitute to a loathsome reaction.

I’m facing a tough time concluding this article. I think, I should leave it as is because frankly speaking no one can cease this problem. Yes, I consider this a superior problem!

Times of India news = Trash

Could you please explain to me why TOI has altered into filthy garbage? Every other news seems to be chosen from derogatory section. It’s like TOI cannot allure readers without vulgar images of C grade actresses from B’town and partly nude girls showing off their junk from the H’town. Their graph has gone down drastically. I clearly remember when I used to peek into this site everyday and never came across such openness to vulgarity. They have everything on their page. From sex scandals to controversies to playboy magazine’s to topless diva’s. And it’s not like it’s hidden on another page; it’s right there, on the main page itself. Like ‘in your face’! Even their blog section is polluted. Polluted by all kinds of random people posting random views on random topics. Writers who actually made sense are nowhere to be seen. A few days ago, I literally went into a shock when I read ‘Rakhi Sawant’s Blog’. I mean, seriously? She can barely talk sense in public, how can she write properly? I’m appalled by TOI. According to TOI, “every being from Bollywood industry is considered a writer.” Is this the only technique left for making profit? Anyhow, pointless to rattle on about this new engine; instead one should find something appropriate and intelligible!
