‘Happy New Year’ ~ What a Farah Khan Farce of a Movie !

‘Happy New Year’ ~ What a Farah Khan Farce of a Movie !

As with all Shah Rukh Khan Starrers there is great pre movie hype and publicity that raises great expectations

Saw it  one late night a few days ago and was thankful wasted less at Regal than one of those ‘loot’ multiplexes…though the seats are not that comfortable and offer only a slight automatic recline that those who wish to sit straight up detest and the whole row shakes when one laughs out loud or rumbles too much in their seat….so on the other hand actually maybe I could have reclined well in those voluptuous multiplex seats and slept through the movie !

Saw Salman Khans KICK on Idd Night and then needed to be Kick Started !

Saw Salman Khan’s KICK on Idd Night ….Mindboggling….actually the Mind Boggled !….and needed to be Kick Started !

Inox Multiplex at Nariman Point ,Mumbai was relatively empty….they need to reduce their Ticket rates….but if you think the Multiplex attracts only the Elite…think again….the row behind was occupied by one  who was discussing his Police Cases & FIRs in Hindi Slang with another similar who he bumped into in the Interval…not even in whispers

Kangana Ranaut as Queen is Good…real Good

Kangana Ranaut

Saw ‘Queen’ last evening at Inox Nariman Point…enjoyed the Movie

…the Multiplex wore a deserted look on a late Friday evening…A Family Movie outing here for a few hours is worth a Full Petrol Tank which lasts a Week at least !…and don’t be lured by the ‘Refuel’  guys always thrusting all Veg Menus onto you….if you do,just stop at ordering what you really want and don’t be lured by the extra that they will ask you,like which sauce etc…they are extra and cost extra…..and always ask for the Bill and check it and the change ….or else you’re encouraging them to pocket the Monies…and do ask them,if they have not already, to give you the nice imported handy blue packets of ‘Tempo’ ~the hygenic hand tissues…they’re free !

Respect the Female Gender and Protect it too and Raise Your Hand to support the Movement against Female Atrocities

Go see ‘Nirbhaya’ it’s at NCPA ,Mumbai till March 20,2014 before moving to New Delhi & Bangalore

It was a choice between catching  India’s well known Woman Tabla Player Anuradha Pal celebrating Life with her ReCharge Percussion Band at the Club’s Main Lawns or supporting and saluting ‘Nirbhaya’  who had Lost Her Life and Other Women who were reclaiming theirs….I’m glad I went to NCPA with my 18 year old daughter and her friend…will ReCharge with Anuradha Pal and her Band  some other time !

Dhoom 3 ~ “Teri Aisee kee Taisee!” ~ I doubt if there will be a Dhoom 4 ! unless of course ,as my son quipped,Abhishek Bachhan and Uday Chopra need some Money and Aditya Chopra obliges ! ~ Mean thing to say as both are really ok,though not in the Movie !
