BABY- Not a review-Only Applause

  



 
"Woh jo religion wala column hota hai , usme hum capital aur bold mein INDIAN likhte hai”


Superb dialogues like the one above is just one of the many,many good things about Baby. Absolutely intelligent story line with power packed performances by actors like Akshay Kumar, Danny Dengongpa, Anupam Kher and Rana Dugubati. The real surprise package was Tapsee Pannu who showed that she could be more than a show piece in skimpy clothes. The twists in the story kept coming till the end and practically glued the audience to their places. This is one of those movies where you would not want to leave your seat in the interval to grab popcorn and risk missing even a single scene. The movie has a good dose of well-designed and “reasonable” action sequences. And by reasonable I mean you won’t see ripples in the muscles when punched or the hero emerging absolutely unharmed out of a blast but could certainly see the effort and training of the actors. And needless to say that nobody does action better than Akshay Kumar. Kudos! Anupam Kher…..well, do I really need to mention anything. He always has something new to deliver. I also particularly liked the background score placed strategically to enhance the thrill.

I am glad I watched it …..and I am sure anyone who does will be too.

The Rose Bouquet

When the doorbell rang at 2 PM, Ashima wanted to ignore it. She wasn’t interested in entertaining friends who often turned up unannounced and overstayed their welcome. She had realized that she had become a “close friend” to many since she acquired her fully furnished 2BHK. The friendly infringement round the clock was becoming extremely uncomfortable and tiring for her. So her first reaction to the unannounced guest at the door was not unfair. She wanted to send a message. But by the third bell, she realized this “friend” probably did not understand the subtle message and needed a stronger to-the-face message.

Cabin Monologue

I feel nice. I spoke to my friend after a long time. I don’t understand why he distanced himself over the last few years. We were so close in college. We also got a job in the same company. Both of us worked hard to get where we are today. Our means were different, so were our expectations from our position. Of course, I love my family but I wanted to enjoy the benefits that came with my powerful position. He didn’t agree with me. I guess that was the reason he stopped talking to me. I was really happy to talk to him today but then he started the same old nonsense. What does he mean that it will blow in my face? That I should change? Times are changing, he said. I wanted to shout back at him that nothing has changed and it never will.

#TrueBeauty- Glow of grit and endurance

Every morning at around 10 AM, my house fills with melodious humming interrupted by frequent giggles. Sometimes there is a bang of a utensil being dropped on the floor or the thump of cushions being patted against each other. At times, a mother’s voice is heard as she lovingly rebukes her 4 year old to not take touch delicate cutlery and to watch TV from a distance. This voice that I have become used to since last four years belongs to my maid who comes twice a day to do the standard chores. She hums to herself as she does the daily chores of cleaning, dusting and washing.
