Fool n Final: A Fool and his Final movie?


Believe me, i could last only about 30 mins before every spirit tucked under my flesh started biting the poor soul. it was when Shahid Kapoor started descending from a 20 story building that my every effort to defeat this evil called ‘Fool-n-Final’ shattered. you may wonder, what’s wrong in that? Ahh, he was cycling down all the way from top!!!! i wish that choreographer-turned-director fella (the Fool) has done his Final movie here. This rare asset must be immediately deported to Dubai, so that he can shoot, at his will, with the camels, bedwins and cactus, in the desert! Will someone take the pain to let him know how bad an Ass he is, who might have thought that shaking bums and making movies require the same girth of talent; though, i doubt if he has anyat all…

But i urge you to take a look at the movie; not that there’s anything good, but you can measure your level of tolerance… and i bet, if you can survive through all the three hours, you’d know that you’ve had conquered “pain”, and inched a step forward to attain Nirvana like Lord Buddhha did 🙂

On the music front too, Himesh Reshmaiya’s scores are disappointing. Much appreciation to be given to the promotion team, who did a smart job in packaging before it actually arrived in theaters. And by then, nothing much can be done – all you have is a load of dirty yellow stuff packed in a sexy looking wrap.

Remembering the Mahatma (podcast & videos)

on this day, our Father of the Nation was born. speaking truth, i had never liked his preachings. even more i always thought that his ways were wrong and ultimately responsible for our ineptness in handling touchy issues like kashmir, jihad, terrorism blah blah. i despised the attitude of letting ourselves to be slapped, way too much truthfulness and cowardness in the veils of peace. probably this reflects the generic attitude in the youth thesedays for bapu. and i too was not much fond of him. i confess. but that was until i saw the movie lage raho munnabhai and started reading more on this man. though i am not yet convinced about all the things he said but i could sense what he tried to say to an extent. the film conveyed an wonderful message –

Gandhigiri is not about doing things in a Gandhi way but to adopt the truthfulness and honesty in our everyday life. correcting oneself is the hardest thing to do and if we can, that makes this world an idiot lesser.

Hiren wrote an wonderful article on this and i thought that was one of the best post i had read for a long time. i also recommend you to read this post on Times magazine about Gandhiji who was ranked 2nd on their list of greatest leaders and revolutioners.

here is an audio podcast where Ms Flower Sillivan, who was a student of Lady Irwin College during the period (1948) when Gandhiji was shot dead, shares her memories of the Mahatma.

here are two rare video footages:

1. Gandhiji in Simla 1931:

2. A tv footage of indian independence report
