Friday movie criticism..

I watched 2 hindi movies today - "Dil Dosti etc" and "Dev D.".

Dev D : Its about this guy who studies abroad and returns back to Punjab.There is this girl called Paro who adored him all her life and had fallen for him and was hoping to tie the knot and being a jerk he is,he is led to believe otherwise about Paro.They have a disagreement and Paro marries someone else and after that Dev realises that he actually loved her truly.Then comes entry of Chandramukhi,who actually is part french and indian.Even though she has a loving home,she hangs around with the wrong guy and things fall apart here as well and her dad kills himself.By then Chandramuki's mom has left her and she becomes a prostitute herself.Anyways,many drug episodes,brothel episodes later,they both meet.
Dil dosti etc : This is about 3 friends.One being a tail to one and another rich kid who has folks ignorant about his existence.One of them wants to find the meaning of what love is and therefore,he visits a brothel and a school girl.HE is actually a slut,looking around for so called love in anyone's bed.The other 2 are power driven and are involved in college elections.

Anyways,the movies werent that bad but if its portraying reality in any way,Im sad for the generations to come.Its just not the kids ,even the parents are losing their touch.I know parents now let go of their children rather than deal with them.And vice versa.Its easier this way and we are not that a crazy fan of close families anymore.Everyone wants to live their way and not be in touch with anyone.Ask anyone why havent you kept in touch,"There's no time rey !..Im so darn busy with work and home,I cannot find the time to call and do anything."

People today can procure drugs,booze and any filthy form of entertainment at a snap.Looking at those movies made me wonder why do children stray so easily,why isnt anyone at peace.Sleeping around has become so casual a thing.Concept of virginity is a joke to 15 yr olds.

What is lacking? Attention, Love, stable family life, money, rules, discipline, etc...which is it? How does one strike a balance as to not choke the life out of one's life but still give a sense of freedom to enjoy the various facets of it.

As one will notice,Im disturbed easily by such movies.I do love them..they tend to raise a question in your mind and in return actually make you focus on yourself and the lives surrounding you.I wouldnt want to be one of those people who stay secluded in the homes.I like to be aware of everything and it gives me a chance to understand people.Each one of us has been brought up a different way,had totally good and messed up experiences to learn from and live with,so circumstances for many of us always differ in various challenges that life proposes every now and then.Only then you can focus as to how your kids should be brought up and how to keep relationships of any kind from falling apart.Living in a bubble cannot be a good idea !

Oh yeah,I watched " Whats your Rashee?"..The movie would have been great if all 12 women were different people.It would have spiced up and made it more enjoyable.But except for things here and there,the movie wasnt that good especially the end...absolutely horrible.the Producers had cash to spend and Priyanka Chopra to deck up.She was ok but still..not that good.

Comments

  1. Rashee was a disaster. UTV, the production house was against casing Harman Baweja but Ashutosh the director was adamant. Look what it got him into. The huge loss that UTV incurred had to be cleared by him.

    Dev D: though I watch each & every movie that’s released, I seem to miss some key films. Didn’t watch Dev D & Kaminey. Strange.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

Camel

You must be wondering what the heck has she written about urine.Is it one the tests she had taken or some disease.

Actually yesterday some friend of my husband told him that eating camel meat stew is beneficial for people with muscle and bone problems and that very soon he would make me feast on it.I personally love camel meat,its tastier,lighter than beef,its just a beautiful meat but its a little more time to cook than the normal meat.So I thought why not find out the benefits of camel meat and while doing so,came across this article about camel urine benefits.

Don't go yuck people,I think in India,people bathe in cow urine when they have some skin infection.My brother and I did this as very small kids.We had been on a holiday to India and developed some skin eczema or chicken pox or measles....so as usual my granny said try this as well when the western medications failed.I know camel meat may not be available in India as commonly as out here but there is nothing wrong in know…
