Ten years ago a film named DDLJ was released which went on to be a superhit. This success led SRK to remain in the same mode for 10 years. 10 years later OSO was released and SRK & Party succeeded in pulling it off as a superhit. There is good news for people who loved OSO and who have Mr. SRK as their favorite actor. It seems that their favorite actor is going to continue in OSO mode for next 10 years. So cheers for them for having next 10 wonderful years.

An interesting part being that SRK chose to play a middle class ordinary man and he had Vinay Pathak at his side playing a not so ordinary man. I really wonder whether SRK was trying to compete with Mr. Pathak and he was actually taking his help in doing so. But neither SRK not Mr. Director found Mr. Pathak’s acting or character interesting enough to show him in the promo. It seems that the Marketing team didn’t realize that they would have succeeded to woo Mr. Pathak’s fans too for the movie and it would have helped Mr. SRK and party in claiming their success. But then it wouldn’t have been fair as Mr. Pathak has hardly a 15 min appearance. It was indeed pleasant to see Mr. Pathak in the kind of role.

One more thing which I would like to mention is that the new comer Anushka Sharma really looked good when she smiled. Congrats to Mr. Pathak. Sir you actually rocked for whatever time you showed up on the screen.

To tell you the fact the whole movie was so interesting that me and one of my friend had to spend around Rs. 300 on two double pegs of Romonov during the intermission. Later we realized that we should have spent at least Rs. 150 more on that. The other friend of mine who happens to be a huge fan of Mr. SRK was not talking for around One and a half hour after the movie. I guess he found his ‘rab’ in Mr. SRK.

In the end I could say only one sentence, “Mazaak-mazaak main Shahrukh Khan ne bahut fudak liya”.

A terrorist attack in Mumbai has shaken up the whole country. But the terrorist attacks in North-East have hardly ever drawn any attention. Every now and then people are getting killed in North Eastern states. Is their life less important than those who died in Mumbai? Is it because the victims of Mumbai attack are from Higher Society and those who get killed in North Eastern states are the ordinary people? Or is it because the target in Mumbai was Hotel Taj and Oberoi whereas in North-East it’s mostly explosions on road side?

Whatever be the reason, one thing I am sure about that every human being has an equal right to live.

The government, media and everyone is pointing fingers to Pakistan saying that these activities are being planned and controlled from Pakistan and the Pakistan Government should take strong steps against such organizations. If what I know is correct, the Naxalites who operate in different parts of the country are operating from Indian soil and the Indian government has not been able to control them. In this context the Indian government appears to be in a similar situation as that of Pakistan. Why can’t India take the same strong steps against Naxalites which it expects Pakistan to take against the terrorist groups based in their territory?

Or all this is just a show off? Ultimately we need someone to point finger at and luckily we have got enough evidence against Pakistan for doing so.

There are actually two ways in which such situation can be dealt. The first option is to take control, take strong (severely strong) steps and ensure that such incident doesn’t happen in future (Angry young man >> Amitabh Bachhan in Deewar, Sholey, Zanjeer). The other option is to cry your heart out, scream, and blame others for your suffering. Ultimately when you get exhausted and gain consciousness you realize that you have so many other responsibilities. You convince yourself that the bad time is over and time will heal all the wounds (Vijay’s mother >> Nirupma Roy).

Is there is a need to mention that which way among the above two does India follow?
