Gomolo.in: the new kid on the block

this blog has long been silent. The sabbatical seems far too stretching. No time for movies, u mean to say? commented one fellow movie lover. Naah. it’s just the impure feeling of lyaad (lethargy).

So, i was out surfing again, and after a while, found this new kid on the block: gomolo.in. uhh aah. On a first glance, it seemed like an indian version of Imdb, but after playing a bit, the fun starts. Inspired by Imdb, the site, it seems, intend to provide a robust platform for the movie lovers to meet and share anything and everything on movies. It has started with a very comprehensive database on Hindi and Bengali movies, and if their objectives are to be believed then Gomolo.in truly could be the first total Indian movie poratal covering every language a film is made in the country. The site is just a new-born, and has a lot of scope for improvement.

Found a web viral on youtube too. it’s funny 🙂

Here is what Mid-day has to say about the site. What could seperate out gomolo with its close rivals is its  focus to develop a strong network of people around the well-researched content. the site also has a handful of quality articles, which the real movie buffs would find very useful. They should soon start reward schemes for contributions to lure people to join. it’s interesting to see how they can create a niche for themselves in the age of orcut and facebooking. will they too join the trend of self-integration with orcut/facebook? their ‘movie locator’ app could surely be the one to start with.

Aneek Dhar: the musical prodigy…

He’s only 18, but Aneek Dhar is already a singing sensation / wonder boy, who was discovered at a popular talent show “Saregamapa”. At this age, he seems to be at par with the leading singers in the country, if not ahead. I wish him all the best. he’s simply spectacular!!

To be honest, i am in total awe with this talent; below is a compilation of his performances on the Show (in a chronological order).

Jai Baba Felunath – the knife throwing scene

This clip is from Satyajit Ray‘s Bengali film ‘Jai Baba Felunath‘, an extremely popular detective flick from one of his famous ‘Feluda’ stories. watch the mastery thrilling scene, where Utpal Dutt (villain) sends out a veiled threat to Feluda and his accomplishes by tricking them to a knife-throwing skill-show — a form of jugglery art. Abhay Mitra, hand-picked by Ray, performed the jugglery in the film for Kamu Mukherjee, the personal juggler of Maganlal Maharaj (Utpal Dutt).
