ShahRukh_Khan_aur_Aishwar_48d352b982dc8Shah Rukh Khan & Aiswarya Rai…with whom i fell in love when i was first introduced to Bollywood through the movie “Devdas”! I was amazed at their acting, dancing, mimicking…I became a total fan. However, soon afterwards i came to know that these two have also some anti-fans, some haters, some protesters…then i met Amir Khan, who was the king of anti-SRK community…and they were blaming SRK as acting in floopy or lame movies giving nothing but fun and laughter or solely romance (note that all of which we need the most recently) while glorifying Amir making official declarations that he was the master of reality scenes, he was the messenger of what was not said yet. Meanwhile, Aishwarya was being compared by other Bollywood queens like Preity Zinta, Sushmita Sen, Kajol, Rani Mukerji and many others…She was being willified by Anti-Aish community saying she is nothing but a plastic doll. She was blamed to be unnatural and superficial…

Let me say i am not against any of the people whom i mentioned above. I don’t have any special hatred or dislike for any of them, and i like quite a lot watching all of them as each one has his/her way of marvellous acting. However, i just can’t understand what is wrong with SRK or Aish, and i am really curious how one can underestimate the soul, the constructive energy hidden in them!

Below is the video song, Ishq Kamina, of both…an excerpt from the movie Shakti, the Power…Just watch the dance and get the spirit…and if you are an especially anti-SRK, let me understand what he did wrong 😛

I had not heard of this movie (Dev D) until one day i met a review by one of my favourite bloggers (Sree) and after an introduction, he was telling the readers to stop reading if you did not watch the movie yet and being a good girl i stopped at the very mentioned point and tried to find the movie impatiently after learning that it was a new version of Devdas. And today i had the chance to see Dev D…

May be i should not compare these two movies (Dev D and Devdas) as each has its own gist in its frame but unfortunately i could not help comparing them during the watch-process….

While i was expecting a painful love story and a sad end leading the audience to shed tears over it, i came across something very different. There was still love (not only a triangle but also a rectangular), there was still missing (not only running after the lover but also to hold and sequeeze her body), there was still drama (not only going for a suicide for the lover but losing a fortune on intoxication), there was still tears, feeling of revenge, lust, anger, frustration, losing control but all those concepts gain a different dimension in Dev D…

Even the way the characters look has disguised itself:

Dev D is somehow inspired by the story of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay but it is quite changed and modernised and adapted to the current era of ours. Not only the characters but also the environment, the setting, the flow of the story, the qualifications of the characters are quite changed. For example in Dev D the characters are quite strong living the life with all its bad and good sides. And the best thing is noone dies….

I did not read the original story. I watched the movie Devdas with Shah Rukh and i found it quite amazing. At first i thought i could not give a chance to another Dev but after the whole movie i found out that it was good in its own scope…

My rate: 4/5!

Quote of the Week

“Babu-ji ne kaha gaon chordo, sab ne kaha Paro ko chordo, Paro kehti hai sharab chordo, ab tum kehte ho ke is haveli chordo, ek din aayega voh kehega Duniya hi chordo.”

From Devdas

More Piya

One of my favourite lyrics from the movie Devdas....
together with its translation for the ones 
who don't know Hindi just like me:)

It gives me the following feelings....
Mystics emotions hidden under concrete words...
Sacred love blinking behind simple gestures...
Strong bonds between two lives...
Finding and losing in a second just like a drop 
of tear flowing through a smiling face never letting 
you find out whether it is because of 
happiness or agony....
Certain feelings can be hidden 
but they are deemed to come to surface 
when the right time comes no matter what...

Here is the lyrics>>>>

Na baiyyaan dharo, aati hai mujhe sharam
Haan, chhod do tumko hai meri kasam
Na, zid na karo jaane do mujhe balam
Dekho, doongi main gaaliyaan bhaanwre
Chalo hato sataao na more piya
More piya, darrta hai dekho mora jiya
Ho more piya, darrta hai dekho mora jiya
More piya

Don't seize my arms; shyness overwhelms me
Yes, let me go; you have my oath
No, no, don't be stubborn, let me go, my sweet!
Look, I'll badmouth you; go away, turn back, move, 
don't torture me, my love
My love, behold how my heart trembles with fear.
My love
