I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,



    Summer! finally.
    Infact its so summery in TO right now that it has people, i.e. me, wishing for a Kalboishakhi (monsoon storm) which is much better than the warm showers we got yesterday.
    To hot for anything, even thinking.
    Search for airconditioned places has me hitting the theatres more than usual.
    Hence the boring impromptu reviews of the last few movies I watched.

    Mr and Mrs Smith- Believe the hype really is all about two beautiful people blowings things up on screen.....mixed in with Pitt's own brand of geeky humour. Perfect summer movie. Its not trying to give out a message ......just promising a good time.

    Bunty and Bubli (Bollywood)- was similarly entertaining. Beautiful people making us laugh. Surprisingly, it had more 'make out' scenes than Mr and Mrs Smith. Sigh. That Abhishekh. And what has Rani done to herself! I want it too!

    Crash- on the other hand, was all about the message (this time against racism) and its delivery. But it was also about how as a society we view people or not view them. Even taking the race factor out, it was quite a powerful movie that showed just easily we forget to be considerate of people around us and are unaware of their stories.

    Parineeta (Bollywood) - was another movie I was waiting to see for a while. Its based on my favourite Saratchandra story. It was very well done, detailed, visually stuning....and the only major flaw would the ending that was changed from the original ending. It might have ruined the entire movie if the rest of the movie wasn't so good. The thing is that most Sarat's heros are meant to be weak and confused. So the sudden smashing of walls by 'Shekhar' with ......wait for it.....a pen?....okay so it might have been bigger than a pen.......was a little surprising. Along with the 10 minute cheering from the other characters as the cute-idiot tried to make a fist size hole in the wall to get to the girl (Lolita) on the other side, all the while when he could have taken two steps sideways and walked out of the door! Honestly!
    Other than that, it was the perfect launch for Vidya Balan *Standing ovation* playing the role of Lolita. She is breathtaking- in beauty and acting.
    *humming* 'piya boley'.........there isn't a more beautiful song right now.
