Long break i gave i believe and yet i didn’t manage to see many movies or read many books in the meantime; still i watched four movies which are all from 2009 and both from Bollywood and Hollywood…
First one is “Blue” by Akshay Khanna, Sanjay Dutt, Lara Dutta, Katrina Kaif and Zayed Khan. It was about some kind of so-called complicated plans and projects about some money buried under water and some theories and tricks to get this money and put it on the right hands. Considering this simple tagline, although the movie should be a breath-taking adventure both under and on water, it was just a waste of time and nothing. There were surely some eye-candies such as Katrina, Lara and even Kylie Minogue as a guest appearence, even these were not enough to bring some life to it. So my rate is 1/5. And this 1 point goes to “Chiggy Wiggy” song sung by Kylie Minogue herself.
The second movie from Bollywood is “Tum Mile” by Emraan Hashmi and Soha Ali Khan. As it is suggested by the title, it is a love story…about a bond between two people, which is challenging yet indispensible. This movie was relatively better as both subject and cast. The soundtrack was also remarkable, my favourite being “Dil Ibaadat” and “Tu Hi Haqeeqat” hence getting a 4/5 from me.
Third one is 2012 from Hollywood for which i had waited to see impatiently for a long time. I can shortly say it was not a perfect and rational action movie yet it was quite strong both on topic-line and acting skills. It was a nice time-pass with some scenes to be watched without even blinking and without getting bored as a whole, so getting 5/5 from me.
And the last movie of this post is 500 Days of Summer, which is quite a different one as a format. It was in a direct story-telling format rather than a routine movie continuence, hence there were lots of flashbacks and flashforwards which was making the movie more interesting. It was both a love and a separation story including deep psychological analyses, getting 4/5 from me.
That is all for today. I may lost again for some time considering the new year celebrations. So let me use this opportunity to wish all of you a joyous christmas and a happy new year 🙂

Time to confess that today i was unable to stop myself from doing shopping again!!! But i believe this time i got some beneficial stuff…What is included…let’s have a look…
Well on the top of the list come the movies. I was too lucky to find some indian movies on the DVD store unexpectedly. I cannot express how happy i felt at the time. First one is “Slumdog Millionaire” which is recommended by a friend (Sree-ji, thank you so much once more for this great advice, i watched it already and now it is in my favourite movie list!) (a review is to be published soon…) And the other one is “Black” by famous bollywood actress Rani Mukherji and one of the bollywood kings Big Ben (Amitabh Bachchan)…The last movie i got today is from hollywood named “Twilight” (how lucky i am again to find both the movie and the book of it on the same day:))
Yea, as I mentioned above i got the first book of the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and i already started reading it…so far so excited….i even forgot to drink my tea as i lost myself in the read…
And the last thing i bought today is something small but cute in apperance…it is just a cell phone bag decorated with cat items….see below yourself how sweet it is (or is it b’coz i love the cats?)
mmmm i guess that is all (as i should not mention the fruits and vegetables i bought today) so it is high time to log out and go on my duty by reading and watching for more reviews:D

Yeah, at last i found some chance to organize my DVD shelves. During the last weeks, i had bought plenty of movies and most of them i watched, still they were making a big pile on my study desk as i was quite lazy (and even busy) to find some place for them. But the more i watched, the bigger the pile turned into….so this friday i re-re-re-re-organized my shelves and i enjoyed it quite much as ever.
While creating some place for the new DVDs, i also revised the old movies i have; some made me smile while others gave me some kind of weird feelings due to their subject matter. Still it was fun! I love watching movies, i love archiving the movies i watched, i love organizing them again and again!!! Yeah, this is called PASSION!
