Not a Pankha of Tubelight

I just caught Tubelight and it was the most enlightening 3 hours of my life. I’ve concluded:

  1. Salman’s impressive Bajrangi had to be a fluke!
  2. Sohail’s impressive Bharat is certainly a fluke!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The two play out their real-life relationship on reel and it’s so sickeningly sweet, bhai’s fans could do without a helping of Sheer Korma on Eid! Director Kabir Khan really overdid the Cheeni in this one.. Pun intended!😝

Set against the backdrop of the Sino-Indian War of 1962, Sohail, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Mr. Bean, has to go fight the CheenπŸ˜‚ I kid you not but the soldiers have been shown as actually ambling across enemy territory like one would in a park!😱 No wonder we lost! πŸ˜‚Kabir Khan’s expertise lies in war films but the war montage here is laughable at best.

China prepares for a truce and sets up a Laxman Rekha, but how I wish they’d draw a Rekha for the real Laxman in the film! πŸ˜‚ Salman really overstepped his boundary in the film! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Whatever glory was garnered in Bajrangi Bhaijaan, he’s given it up all without a fight (pun intended) in Tubelight. He does nothing that endears him toΒ his pankhas. No mara mari, no shirtless savari πŸ˜‚ Only his pravachan is jaari! πŸ˜‚

Yakeen hamesha dil mein rakho, dushmano se dosti karo, aur audience ko slow poison dekar maaro!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

A local magician exhorts him to believe and hope with all his heart to get things moving in life and he moves a bottle, then a mountain, but all the while, movesΒ us to tears!And I don’t mean that in a good way! His man-child act is so farcical when you compare it to a Krish or to a Samar. Salman’s expressions are so contrived, he ends up caricaturing Laxman horribly. I didn’t even tear up once in what were intended to be emotional scenes. Words like goo, susu and potty sum up the humor quotient of the film. Toilet humor is so passe and yet the bhai bhakts were rolling in mirth! 😳

Chinese import Zhu Zhu is as bland as the cuisine of her land! πŸ˜‚ Her son, Matin, is cute as a button but, this talkative munna is no match for the mute munni. And after watching such a jaded, preachy film, I’m speechless too! Again, not in a good way!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shabaas

Truly, this dude deserves all the accolades coming his way. Not only has he succesfully engraved the identity of Indian Cinema on the global map, he’s also effectively “SNAPped, short the “CHATting” ability of a certain Mr. Spiegel! πŸ˜·πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

bahubali-2-first-day-collection-115-crore-kaha-gaya-woh-19785625.png

While the whole of my tribe is drooling over this ‘Made-In-India’ Adonis, I’d be quite content to be his mum…or his mother-in-law…lol. To me, he’s quite the Goody Two-Shoes! As for me, I need someone more badass, someone more wicked…like SRK..lol. See πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Anyhoo, word is that the “original” Miss Goody Two-Shoes from Bollywood would be collaborating with her male counterpart for next year’s mega- release, Saaho. 😷😷😷

I mean, wth! 😑😑😠😠 Are the makers even serious???!? Kat is a doll for Chrissakes!!! Wasn’t she crowned Human Barbie or something a while ago?Β Have you looked at her resume if not her repertoire? It clearly states that she can ONLY pout and preen before going back to looking like an ice queen! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Honestly guys, drop her! She’s as lethal as that suicide bomber who ripped Manchester apart. She’s gonna kill us Prabhas fans with her poor histrionics. 😰 In fact, I foresee a high probability of Prabhas’ fans turning against him on account of the inanimate vixen😭…We don’t wanna say Bakwaas to anything related to Prabhaas now, do we?

Rope in Shetty instead. She’ll save it from being shitty! πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚ And Saaho won’t turn into a Saho!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Of Chiknas and Chamelis

Usually, any moment is a good photo-op moment what with Β our stars always perfectly groomed. Unlike the days of yore, when fashion disasters were as likely as getting pigeon poop on your head, the current breed of stars seem to be a wisened lot.

So,while they twinkle brightly even in the dead of night donning glamorous labels and flaunting perfect coiffures, there’s only but once when they shone blazingly, looking like a million bucks. Here’s when:

  1. Ranbir in Badtameez Dil

It took him 6 looooooong years to metamorphose from the sissyish clone of his mother that he used to be to THIS! I can’t put my finger on what makes him look so bloody badtameez here! 😘 Is it his ruffled,shorter crop or the badass ring in his ear or his crisply tailored suit….I could go on and on…sigh!

2. Can’t really leave his exes behind now, can I? 😝 Deepika in Lungi Dance.

Dippy always makes our tribe feel like we ought to crawl under a rock. But looking the way she did here, we almost smashed that rock on our heads!

3. Katrina in Everything! πŸ˜‚ But she looks especially ghazab in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani.

Kat looks PHAT in EVERYTHING πŸ˜‚…never mind the botox jabs and all! Pre-2010, there used to some meat on her bones and her face boasted of an angelic quality that the hypodermic pricklies took away. Have a look at her ethereal beauty.

4. Hrithik in Tu Meri

The Adonis of Hindi Cinema can’t be faulted for his look in his entire repertoire of films, but it took a Bang Bang! for him to get his look Bang-On in my sight! 😍😘

A huuuuuge fan of Simon Baker, I’ve likened Hrithik’s avatarΒ to the Mentalist himself ….if that ain’t a compliment, I don’t know what is! 😌

 

5. Preity Zinta in Dil Se…

Chubby cheeks, dimpled chin,

Rosy lips, Teeth Within,

Wavy hair, very fair

Eyes are true, lovely two

Preity Zinta is that you?

YES YES YES!!! 😁😁😁

Bollywood’s original dimpled-beauty has looked her best only at 2 times ..the first when she was a novice and the next when she was at the top of her game in Kal Ho Naa Ho and Salaam Namaste! Agree?

6. SRK in Dear Zindagi

Like fine wine, the man’s gotten better with age😘…the histrionics, the stutter, and the sexy stubble too! 😜 KHAN the King get better than this?! 😝

7. Aishwarya in Dil Dooba

Ash is a visual feast in every film she’s appeared. But that one look she totally rocked was that of a Latina with smouldering eyes, luscious curls and a scorching scarlet gown. Check it out

Wat ERR girl!

It’s rather fortunate for my blog that our celebs spend enormous amounts of time banishing the spiders veins and crows feet off their faces instead of spending a dime on brushing the cobwebs off their sparingly-used brains πŸ˜‰

Alia finally has company guys! Woohoo! πŸ˜† Current World Tennis Doubles Awwal grandly displayed her lack of akkal! That too on a rather cerebral platform such as KBC Telugu! πŸ˜›

When asked what Sodium Chloride is commonly known as and given four choices, Sania professed that Physics was never her strong point! 😯 The whole studio, pointedly ignoring the cue cards, erupted into raucous laughter. πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Unfazed, she confidently placed her bets on…I shit you not!…water!!! 😯 😯 😯

Isne definitely desh ka namak nahi khaaya hai πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† Tata Salt, you listening? πŸ˜‰

Watch her go down in the annals of Chemistry here! πŸ˜‰

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0Nx7_Hacosw

PK chhe?

I stumbled across an absolute gem on the Saharasamay site and thought it’d be fun to pitch in my two cents πŸ˜‰ After all, I live for such articles! πŸ˜›

Our celebs must have been really high to have agreed to preen for such oopsie daisy Kodak moments! Check them out:

1. Slumdog MillionHAIR πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Nothing to beat the summer heat than wrapping yourself in cellophane, eh? By far, the most sober piece of clothing in SHOWinda’s wardrobe! πŸ˜‰

And trending at number 7,

This man surely felt like he was in heaven. WTF was KK thinking? And more importantly, WTF was AK doing? *speechless* 😯 😯 😯

WHAM BAM!!!

I wonder if Hrithik and Kat walked straight from the shoots of Mountain Dew and Slice, respectively, onto the sets of Bang Bang. This film sure looks like the extended disco version of the two commercials in question! πŸ˜€

After being ousted from the Dhoom camp, the unemployed & twiddling his extra thumbs πŸ˜† Duggu must have jumped at the chance to essay the role of the devilishly-cute, outrageously-sexy, thief-cum-masterchef, Rajveer. A part he can sleepwalk through by now! πŸ˜‰

On this occasion, he grows sticky fingers and plants his half-a-dozen πŸ˜† on The Kohinoor no less! 😯 As nonchalantly as I would lift a pack of Kohinoor Basmati Chawal at D-Mart! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Anyway, thereafter follows complete global mayhem. (Incompetent) Intelligence Agencies, (Impotent) Police Personnel, slimy spies, cold-blooded criminals and I think I even caught a glimpse of the hot-blooded Barbara Mori πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜† hot on the heels of the perpetrator of this mind-boggling chori! πŸ˜€

It’s Around The World in 80 Minutes from then on. Destination Next is Shimla. We’re shown a Bank of Shimla which has suitably employed a ditzy Shimla Mirchi (only because Kat looks hot!) as their receptionist. The first serious bit of thinking on the scriptwriters’ part! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Miss Kaif, the untouched, virginal flower, we’re told, likes to play it safe. It would have been fitting to play ‘Zara Zara Touch Me Kiss Me’ in the background for us to sympathize with the desperation of this nun. πŸ˜‰

Dekha akhkha din mango ko chooosneka nateeja? πŸ˜› πŸ˜‰ Kabhi kabaar MAN ko bhi….ahem too explicit!!! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜› Kabhi kabaar MAN ke peeche bhi jaaya karo. Phir Aamsutra ke saath saath Kamasutra ka bhi endorsement milega! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ πŸ˜†

She proceeds on a blind-date but when the (in retrospect, blind) man in question does a no-show, no prizes for guessing what ingenuity streaked through the writer’s mind. Krrish swoops in for a kiss! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

In the process of charming the pants off her, Harleen metamorphoses into a sex-starved protagonist from Harlequin! πŸ˜† She wonders aloud why Hrithik wants to lug a shiny piece of glass everywhere! 😯 That one peek into her dumb-blonde-kinda mind convinces Hrithik that his secret is safe! Unlike the others, this one is genuinely interested in the male, and not the maal! πŸ˜† She even berates him for picking this Kohinoor and would rather he picked the Kohinoor of the more useful variety found at the chemists! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜› πŸ˜†

From the Alps to Abu Dhabi, we get to witness a lot of betaabi. From Greece to Prague, in their pants is a raging aag! πŸ˜‰ Clearly, she was briefed that Hrithik’s job was to keep the golis flying and she, the cholis flying! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Quite the arduous journey watching the VIRGIN traversing the ATLANTIC, hoping for a satisfying BANGBANG and Krrish pulling off the most inane of stunts from every mode of transport ever invented that seriously makes us want to hail Aamir as the God of Action for his stellar performance in Dhoom 3! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜†

I walked into the theater thinking I’d see a desi Mentalist. Walked out feeling quite MENTALish. πŸ˜€ Steer clear!

BELOW: ‘Look Hrithik, this piece of glass is just as pretty as your Kohinoor and so much more useful! Huh! πŸ™„ ‘

10614181_569059099887535_87883825131001325_n

This one is on ma mind Knight & Day!

Individually, when seen on their own, I detest Katrina and will continue to do so, Jab Tak Hain Jaan, for her pathetic acting chops πŸ˜‰ and Hrithik for perpetually looking like a chiseled mutton chop πŸ˜†

Together, the two couldn’t work their magic on me in Chikni Chameli and Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara couldn’t tempt me to catch it Dobara! πŸ˜‰

Somehow, these two seem to have gotten lucky the third time around. With the golden highlights bouncing off his luscious curls, Indian women can finally be blinded and bedazzled by their very own Made-In-India Simon Baker. πŸ˜‰

I’m sure on waking up each morning, Kat looks the way I look after slathering on layers of greasepaint for a grand wedding reception. Prepped and primed for a shot, she undoubtedly looks like a goddess! These two look so scorching-hot in Bang Bang, I’m already imagining how cute their babies would be! πŸ˜‰

The trailers promise high-octane action. If you recall, so did those of Dhoom! πŸ™„ I remember guffawing and swearing the loudest and even hurling popcorn at Aamir’s face as he regaled? his fans with the most laughable stunts of the millennium! Indeed, that movie spelt DOOM DOOM for the genre. πŸ˜† Fingers crossed Hrithik doesn’t make us HANG HANG our heads in shame! πŸ˜‰

I quite like the music. Each song has been steadily growing on me. A very casual, clubby feel emanates from the dance tracks. Something light and airy that I can play on my IPod. Something that isn’t designed to bring on a monster-migraine-attack like that hideous snakecharmer’s composition- Malang Malang! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ The videos of BB are shot stylishly, the leads look like a million bucks in their crisply- tailored attire and everything seems so well put together. Let’s hope we get the maximum BANG for our bucks. Make that BANGBANG for our bucks!

Ta Da! Face-Off Time Guys!

TRIPE OF INDIA

So, for those of you who are on Pluto and haven’t caught a whiff of the Deepika Padukone Vs ToI Tiff, here’s what transpired between the warring factions on Twitter Sunday last.

India’s leading house of journalism, having nothing more newsworthy to publish, decided to spice up their website with stock footage of Dips in a blouse with a dipping neckline. Creative huh? πŸ™„ And the headline they came up with simply is the proverbial cherry on the icing!β€˜OMG! Deepika Padukone’s Cleavage Show!!!’ WOW! SIMPLY WOW! (Saif Ali Style πŸ˜‰ )

Miss Fanny, who I’ve always thought is diplomacy personified, has kicked ToI smack on its fanny and how!

dips 1

dips 2

dips 3

To which the ToI came back with the mother of all retorts!

dips 4

😯 😯 😯

I’ve been following the ensuing brouhaha where the entire film fraternity and rival news publications are lauding Dips for taking on such an established and powerful news syndicate by its horns. And then there are some, like the ditzy Pooja Bedi, who are milking this issue dry with the hopes of receiving a fat raise. Such loyalty towards the employer I tell you! Padhke aankh mein aasu aa gaye! πŸ˜‰

Personally, I fully understand why the TOI has to resort to such drastic measures to ensure they stay visible. Even though they source the most premium quality of paper to print their “news” on, the final product is still way inferior to the tissue roll hanging in my toilet! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜† Didn’t Ranbir Kapoor say something to the same effect once? Atta Boy! πŸ˜›

I never thought that day would arrive but it has. Today’s Bombay Times is noticeably voluminous than the main newspaper (Considering the trashy Mirror as an appendage) There are sexperts like Mahinder Watsa, who in my opinion, is the greatest Indian inventor (of sexual fiction) of all time! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† This detailed and rather disgusting query had me ditching my mornin’ cuppa for good. Read it at your own risk! πŸ˜‰

Mahinder Watsa

Years ago, the collegian in me witnessed Mid Day to be a best seller in the Gents’ Compartment. No, no, I wasn’t the fly on the wall there! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ It’s just that the vendor would enter with an armload of Mid-Days that would sell like hotcakes and then enter the ladies’ compartment with the insipid Afternoon D&C, whose crosswords reaffirmed β€˜Haan main paanchvi paas se bahut zyaada tez hoon!’ πŸ˜† If Mid-Day symbolized the raunchy mate, from now on, ToI will be synonymous with voyeuristic porn.

Oops pics might titillate and be enjoyed by a few but for the larger majority, they are a major put-off. If you own such a large database of pictures that debase, by all means come out with a PlayTOI for the horny few. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜† But then you shouldn’t portray yourself to be a crusader of women’s rights. What’s the grand idea in talking about mahila shakti on Pages 1 and 2 and then giving us a glimpse of Alia’s chaddi, when her skirt accidentally rode up during a promotional event, on Page 3. That makes you the worst kind of hypocrite there ever is! πŸ™„

When you take a stand, I think it is representative of your entire conglomerate. So was Arnab’s condemning and crucifying Nirbhaya’s heinous rapists just a farce? Or was she spared from such humiliating objectification just because she didn’t have a wow cleavage a la Miss Padukone?

Getting back to dips,The ToI might have showed us her cleavage but the girl showed us she’s got balls! As Alia puts it so succinctly,

dips 5

I’m euphoric you’ve finally got what was coming to you, you Tribe of Idiots (ToI)! πŸ˜† And here’s a little treat from the far-superior Hindu to buoy that euphoria a little more. Enjoy!

There’s KOMthing about Mary!

When Holiday released, the only clue that tipped me off about SonHATHI being a boxer were her bright neon XXXL BOXERS! πŸ˜† So badly has the daughter of KHAMOSH sullied a boxing great’s image, Laila Ali must have definitely fallen BEHOSH πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

MC Mary Kom certainly won’t go into a KOMA πŸ˜† when she watches her biopic.

The story of Mary Kom- The Film tries hard to trace the life-story of Mary Kom- The Legend. Of her impoverished upbringing in an obscure Manipuri household, of her frugal education, of her fractured relationship with a conservative father, of the simmering anger within her, of her belligerent foray into a sport as intense and brutal as boxing, of her rise to fame and the subsequent bleakness of anonymity brought on by marriage and motherhood, and finally of her determination to redeem herself as one of Asia’s formidable pugilists.

Phew! Quite a commendable journey that! But Mr. SLB (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) insists on behaving like a SOB! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜† He liberally peppers fact with fiction. We want an unadulterated BIOPIC Mr. Bhansali. We never desired to BUY-YOUR-FIC(tion) πŸ˜‰

The young Mary Kom, testosterone-ridden to the point of beating the shit outta every boy in Manipur, has been shown to join the sport only to give direction to the anger consuming her. Man(i)pur ki Man-eater, eh? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜†
In reality, Kom took up boxing after being heavily inspired by another boxing luminary, Dingko Singh.

Which makes me wonder if SLB has shown Kom sharing such an uneasy equation with her father, just for the sake of melodrama. The real Papa Kom might have forbidden his daughter from taking up the sport as it would mar her pretty face and make her SCARY Kom instead πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† which in turn would derail her chances of finding marriage alliances. But I’m not so sure if he was completely in the dark and learnt of his daughter’s advent into the sport only through the tabloids! I mean who does that, besides Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, breaking the news of her breakup to Vivek Oberoi in the TOI? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜†

Before painting Papa Kom as a monster, SLB should have paused to reflect that woh ugaata hai Chaawal, ukhaadta nahi hai like the villainous Paresh Rawal! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

And I can bet my bottom dollar that Papa didn’t scream ATTACK! sitting in his living room for Mary to hear thousands of miles away that propelled her to deliver that winning blow! 😯 Sheesh! Aaj kal tadka gravies mein hi nahi, biographies mein bhi daalne lage hai! πŸ˜†

As if this wasn’t enough, there are plenty of product endorsements we must silently endure. Was Mankind’s Prega News Home Pregnancy Test available at the beginning of mankind πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† considering Kom had her bonny boys close to a decade ago? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ We are enlightened to the fact that Havmor ice-cream was her craving and are given a quick lesson in patriotism when the camera pans in on Tata Salt in her pantry. Aakhir Kom ne desh ka namak jo khaaya hai! 😯

Piggy Chops packs in quite a punch. After subtracting 1 point for her fake Manipuri accent (which sounded more like my Gurkha’s Nepalese btw πŸ˜† πŸ˜† – Aai Shalaam Shaaib, tumrah bocha aaj khelne ko aaya nahi neeche) πŸ˜† performance-wise, she stands neck-to-neck with her unbeatable Jhilmil. From now on, she’s officially Piggy BOX! πŸ˜‰

Pee Cee’s spirited act is the only redeeming feature of this feature film. Sadly, that’s just what it is. An act. However superb! Wish they’d scratched beyond the surface of Mary Kom’s brawn. Woh toh already Wiki pe text form mein available hai FOR FREE! πŸ˜‰

Now here are some pics that speak volumes about the real Mary Kom. Enjoy!

The Ultimate KUTTI Party

As I sat watching Entertainment, I couldn’t help thinking Vidya has some serious competition from a ‘Baal’an of the canine kind πŸ˜† Sajid-Farhad’s latest is testament enough that Filmein bas teen cheezon se chalti hain. Entertainment, Entertainment aur Entertainment. Amen! πŸ˜‰

Critics might be hell-bent on shoving the Golden Kela down the Golden Retriever’s throat but honestly, just like the shade of his lush coat, he simply is the brightest spot in the film.

entertainment-movie-screens-distribution

Akshay who plays Akhil Lokhande really should have been named ‘Nakal’ POORkhande πŸ˜† He’s spoofing fat guys on a Teleshopping Channel. Think the former Adnan Sami types, replete with 36B boobs and all! He even tempts a baby to latch on!!! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† He also masquerades as an umpire in a Borivali-Dombivali league match πŸ˜† and shows the players the finger one too many times just so that he can quickly escape and make it in time for that date.

His girlfriend, Saakshi, the over-enthusiastic soapstress, is dubbed Balaji ki Chulbullu. It’s a good thing she didn’t approach Kapil for a part. Acting chops as hammy as hers, he’d be sure to give her a humongous Babaji ka Thullu! πŸ˜€

Chakravarthi acts like a CHAKRAMvarthi πŸ˜† The miserly father buys furniture with arm rests and other vital parts missing simply because they’re cheaper! 😯 Here too, he’s in full DID mode. DIE IN DARKNESS! πŸ˜† He makes do with candlelight just so that others don’t discover the flaws and poke fun at his FUNiture. ROFL! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† He refuses to give his daughter’s hand in marriage to Akhil POORkhande.

As luck would have it, Akhil’s the DNA of Pannalal Johri, Bangkok’s noted diamond merchant, DNA being Daddy’s Naajayaz Aulaad! 😯 Johri dies, leaving behind an empire worth 3000 crores. Off trots Akhil to the land of tuk tuks to lead a life of sukh sukhs. Alas! In store lie only dukh dukhs. For the oldie bequeathed his estate to someone who does buk buks! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† Slumdog millionaire indeed! πŸ˜†

In walks Akhil’s bestie, Jugnu, a DVD peddler who talks filmy. Sample this. ‘Akhil, yaar mujhe pata hai ki tera khoon Danny BOYLE ho raha hai. Tujhe agar apna future hrithik ROSHAN chahiye, toh TIGER shroff ban, ajay devGUN nikaal aur us kameene kutte KO MAAR mere Akshay Kumar!!!’ The two invest in a book describing (hilarious) methods to do away with the dog but it’s fun watching Entertainment turn the tables on the duo.

It’s-Entertainment-Movie-Still-1

One chapter’s titled Seduction and they almost succeed in getting the dog to elope with a rather brazen bitch. But curiosity gets the better of them and tempts them to follow the dogs deep into the woods. One misstep has Akhil slipping off the branch of a tree and landing headfirst into a hollow log. I almost peed laughing when Jugnu leaned against the same log, crying his eyes out at the failure of finding his lost friend! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Johnny Lever, as Johri’s loyal lawyer, is first rate. Named Habibullah, he’s rather touchy about anyone getting his name wrong. So you can imagine when he glides into the frame in a gondola at night hoping to scare the goons and they mistake him for and call him GORILLA, he almost gives himself away trying to correct the error. ROFL! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Another brilliant moment is towards the climax when Jugnu and Habibullah chance upon a set of knives and decide to strike the goons with them. But Jugnu’s faulty aim sees the knives flying in reverse and lodging themselves in Habibullah! Numbed with pain and shock, Habibullah stumbles jerkily into the street and peddles the knives. ‘Lelo bhai lelo, dus mein lelo. Pandhra mein lelo’ ROFL! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

If you can forgive the frenzied Priyadarshan-style ending, where everyone is hitting everyone, the yawn-inducing villains, and some slapstick comic moments like a dog biting the villain’s crotch, you just might end up with this one in your collection like me.
