My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nothing...

Yup, the old ANAGRAM is gotto change now. It's no more Nine Planets cos Pluto has been chucked out of the Solar System. It's no more a Planet. So now, the Solar System's got just 8 planets with the possibility of more planets being added. The irony is that one of the may-be-added planets is one heavenly body called "Charon", a moon of Pluto. The moon amy become a planet and the planet isn't a planet anymore.

Pluto is now rechristined as just another Plutonian object -the term itself arising from the word Pluto- after the International Astronomical Union stripped Pluto off it's Planetary status which it had enjoyed for the past 7 decades. This is a result of changing the definition of a planet. As Pluto didn't qualify to be deemed a planet according to the new defintion, it was, without any delay, kicked out of the Planetary List.

KANK review...Amitabh range role...



Read only if you have seen the movie or you don't care to see the movie...

It's very hard to write about the movie without going into the story because the movie has nothing other than that.

Here's the story in short

Simple intros for Abhishek, Rani and Priety. And a la Manmadhan intro for Amitabh Bachan
Scene (atleast an attempt, and ya the gals loved it) intro for SRK
SRK meets Rani on the day of her marriage
Few punchliners and some senti dialouges
He meets with an accident ( he does live, come on do you think KJ will kill SRK so soon...if you did gasp, it means you haven't seen any of KJ's movies)
Priety is sema hot shot babe
Abhishek is a big pary organiser and Amitabh is a Manmadhan

SRK and Rani meet after some years, SRK limps (gals gasp again...cha...gals r so predictable)
Marriages between SRK and Priety and Rani and Abhishek are on the rocks.
SRK and Rani (vetti ppl...seriously...they got nothing else to do other than meet each other at the station) meet very often and they fall in love....

Priety and Abhishek party like they got nothing else to do
SRK and Rani cheat their spouses
They sleep with each other
SRK slips this in as a joke during a both family dinner and sets Amitabh the manmadhan into thinking mode
SRK and Rani finally tell their spouses about the cheating
Priety makes a simple break up....(gals don't get shocked by this...She gives SRK one tight slap which surprisingly brings up the most claps from the crowd..they were clapping like mad when Priety slapped SRK...I clapped too)
Abhishek breaks all the crockery and makes a big hulla-bulla over the break up thingy
Oh and by the way....Amitabh dies 3/4 way through the movie

Rani is sent out of her house and so is SRK
They lie to each other saying they are still with their spouses and feint a narrative

Theen saal baadh...(:D)

Abhishek comes to Rani to give his marriage invitation
Priety rejects a marriage proposal from a colleague
Rani is invited to Abhishek's marriage

----Tamil Movie Climax----

SRK has a train to Toronto
Rani is convinced by Abhishek and Priety to go and join with SRK (Abhishek's bride happens to be the friend of the guy who proposed to Priety)
Train station climax

SRK for some unknown reason avoids Rani's sight and somehow gets into the Train
Rani spots her but she's on the other side of the Window

The Train leaves for Toronto
Rani is totally dejected

told u...tamil movie climax....

SRK somehow gets past the automatic doors and comes to the logic in KJ movies...

Even now he tries a silly joke....

Rani: Ab kya?
SRK: 15 days jail mein
Rani: Kyon?(gasps away to glory)
SRK: Train rokhney ke liye chain pull kiya liye...
Rani: Oh Dev...

Oh come on...don't tell me you laughed for that...

Bah Humbug!!!

They both get together


This is just a Point to Point of the story, the original movie is 3 hrs 15 long...was able to watch it thanks to the wonderful Butter Popcorn and Pepsi...

Well to be honest, Abhishek's done a wonderful job and Priety has kinda subdued role...she does that perfectly...SRK is his usual with his non-homorous one liners (which the gals sitting in the row behind me found very very amusing...crap)...and Rani with her croaky voice does her best which turns out to be a normal performance...

Amitabh the Manmadhan....wife dude's enjoying with one lady a day...he even introduces one girl as Saturday(says it's much better to remember the days on which he hired them rather than the names...indha vayasula idhu theyva dhaan)

Over all, I would say it was an extra dose of KJ's sentiments which generally isn't good for my health....It may suit you....

The movie is a one time watchable stuff....that too CD dhaan...but if you want to look at some hot babes, then go to Satyam and pay Rs.150 only and watch the movie...or whoever/whatever you want...

The Worsht restaurant...

My Dad's sudden decision to take us all out came as a big surprise to all of us. It's not usually this way, we have to bug him for some weeks until he decides it's better to take us out. As it was his decision we let him decide the restaurant. It was Vasanta Bhavan in Vadapalani.

We left at around 7 30 and the look of the restaurant from the outside looked good and the Interiors was pretty good too with Underfeet Aquariams, it was kinda surprising for me. I never expected it to be this way and it was crowded to the brim, that's what surprised me totally. We were asked to go to the Garden Restaurant in the front of the Visage facing the Road.

Once we went there, the Comedy started. The waiter gave us a Menu card and there were 4 of us, so I asked him for another Menu Card and he started searching the whole area only to come back some 5 minutes later to say that all the other Cards were "in use". It was 8 10 by the time all the 4 orders were written down.

Dad ordered some Rava Masala Dosa. He got it within 10 minutes. My dad just put his hand on the Dosa and started looking at it from a million angles and finally concluded that there was no Masala in that!!!!. We called the guy taking the orders and told him about this, he apologised anad took it away and within 2 minutes came up with the same stuff and a cup with the Masala in it. We were totally taken aback, I as such didn't expect such a silly correction to the Problem.

Next came my Butter naan with PBM. It tasted good but the PBM was sweet!!!!. Utter nonsense. My brother and I were discussing about the pathetic condition of the restaurant when the Masala Papad my mom had ordered some 15 minutes ago was brought to the table. It had just two pieces in it while the Menu Card said 3 pieces. We told the guy about this and he promptly brought another one in his hands!!!!! He didn't even bring it on a Plate...worshtu...

So people, my strongezst recommendation ever, don't ever go to that resturant and please pass this message to all the others too.

The only thing my Dad said while we were heading back home in the car, "Next time I think it'll be better for youo people to decide the Spot"....

I can't agree more...
