I celebrated Christmas by watching Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots – a movie I had been looking forward to; not because it is based on Chetan Bhagat’s book Five Point Someone but because it was a Rajkumar Hirani movie. Here is my review of probably the most anticipated movie of the year, without any spoilers.
As I said once on twitter, the 55ers posts of the blogosphere are the 20-20s of the cricket world. Short, nice, don’t take much time to read and easy to comment. So here is another one 🙂
Yes you read it right. I am going to write the review of Twilight – a movie which was released in theaters on November 21, 2008 ..one year ago!! But not in India. It was released in India just few weeks prior to the release of its sequel – New Moon. ..almost an year late. Twilight had grossed US $35.7 million on its opening day; US$ 384,997,808 in worldwide box office and as of December 2009, $175,255,138 in North American DVD sales. So I had to watch it to know what was the hype all about!! Its sequel “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” took in $72.7 million in its first day to break the single-day domestic box office record set by “The Dark Knight”.
Here are my reviews of the two movies :-
This year I won the “IndiBlogger of the Month May 2009 – Original Humor” contest. Again I was one of the three winners at “Star Movies Indiana Jones Blogged Challenge on IndiVine.” And before the year ended, another contest has come along – a contest which started it all, a contest which is one of its kind, a contest which is happening again at public demand, a contest “of the bloggers, by the bloggers, for the bloggers”, a contest where I won awards in 4 categories last time and was also the runner up for 4 categories!! [ All of you do remember Reemawati right? and her famous election campaign] A win in this contest and it will be a “HATRICK” for me! 😀 😀
Payal loved her Suresh Uncle. He used to give her chocolates and dolls! Yet, somehow she felt scared walking down that dark alley with him to meet some other Uncles.
Suddenly Payal woke up. Its been 5 years. She still dreamed about that alley everyday.
Meera yelled again “Get ready! Your new customer is waiting”
Its been days since I saw any new award doing rounds of the Blogosphere. As Vishesh says in one of his posts, the days of receiving pingbacks and all those old blogging stuff seems to have ended. Where are all those creative people who used to design these awards in the first place?? I sound like the old people who say “Hamare zamane mein”..no? 😀 😀
Thankfully, I did receive a few some time ago. I have been late in acknowledging them and passing them along. Excuse me for that!
My first attempt at writing a 55er fiction.
Sneha was happy and at peace. At last Rahul was over his ex-gf. They were on yet another date to finalize the details of their marriage next week. Rahul went to the men’s room. She casually picked up his mobile kept on table.
Rahul came back to find the seat empty and her gone forever.
I am quite active in the online world. I have two blogs. I am on Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, Orkut, Tumblr..you name it, I am there…except on Myspace. People may criticize “online friendship” as to be devoid of trust, full of false claims, a sign of having no “real” life etc. I admit there are lots and lots of people out there who cheat , deceive and lie on the Internet and one must always exercise caution while making new acquaintances on Internet.And I am just talking about friendship. Online love is all together a different ballgame.
