Valentines Day to remember

Yeah so 14th Feb was fast approaching and all of us were deciding to what to do on this god forsaken day. No don't get me wrong, I luuuurrrrve love but do not have anyone to share this 'special' day with. Anywho, my friend and I (she is committed, FYI) decided to get a huge bucket of KFC and a huge tub of Chocolate ice cream with chocolate chip cookies sprinkled on it and watch reruns of F.R.I.E.N.D.S or chick flicks. And I wanted to listen to "All by myself......" and have box of Kleenex as well. Well, whaddya know we ended up watching a movie that night with a chocolate shake in this theatre. Saw Changeling. As intellectual as I am I do not understand the meaning of the title, but I must say I think the movie exceeded my expectations. It was too good. The acting, the casting, the story, the setting, the dialogues, the scenes ESPECIALLY the court scene! If its a true story, then I hope whoever was involved in torturing the crap out of Christine Collins is rotting in hell! Poor thing, loses her son but finds hope to find him after she gives up everything. The court scene is amazing.

Well on Wednesday night I saw Dev D. Contemporary Devdas. I was surprised to see 5 stars for it for the review in TOI. But frankly, I think it deserves all the accolades and the stars it got. Its not a movie which has mass appeal. It is not as emotional as Devdas but you feel sorry for the protagonist. It is a bold movie, it will give you a depressing feeeling. If for nothing else, go for Abhay Deol's acting and the songs. Ooh am I addicted to them!


Yeah say it. I know I aint that great in writing movie reviews, but what the hell!

Megha Gupta, We seem to be chatting here, arent we? N I'd like to confess I'm loving every bit of it. :-)
Well Im happy being AB as long as long as its me they think of when they take the name. Im much happy being me. Abhishek can be me if he likes to but not vice versa.
BA honours HMT..BBA. Heavy duty.

haha.... my valentines went by playing CRANIUM!!! with the girls.. it was rightly "the single awareness day" for me.. or shud i say for "us" ( u n me) So the movie.. changeling... yup awesome movie!
Just makes me wonder what kind of people exist in this world...
Yet to watch Dev D.. very surprising that piracy hasn't delivered the movie to this part of the wrld till now!!! (very surprising!)
So yup anyways.. hope next year we wud have sum one to eat dinner with at a nice spensive restaurant with some champagne and flowers and chocolate covered strawberries...and not eating chocolate ice cream... btw i had curled chocolate and vanilla ice cream dat night after playing my Cranium!
