Bhool Bhulaiyya

Went to watch the film Bhool Bhulaiyya due to the inner desire of a mallu to know how one of the classics of his language was re-made for a different audience. I knew Priyan would try his best to make this film as worst as possible, but never thought it would be such pathetic.

When I came out of the theatre, it got reinstated in my mind that actors of the genre Akshay and Vidya can never perform beyond a certain level. And a few words to Priyadarshan; you are best at doing comedy and that is your core competency. Please dont do anything that doesnt fit you, by which you would ruin your own reputation and more importantly, ruin the image of a great movie from Malayalam. Priyan, you have any idea what the people who had seen the film Bhool Bhulaiyya had thought about one of the greatest malayalam films, Manichithrathazhu??

St Thomas Condos

Going out for a vacation, this has become an unavoidable practice for many a lot. Yearly vacations, honey-moon trips or may be even corporate meetings are nowadays held at exotic locations. People are looking for locations that are serene and far away from the hassles of a city to get relaxation and peace of mind.

Found the site of St Thomas Condos, which gives information about the services (villas on a sea-side; for corporate meetings, as a wedding / honey-moon destination, yearly vacation) they are offering. The one thing I liked about the site was its appearance. The site is well designed. The various modern facilities offered by the company is clearly described in the website, due to which, for the user, it’s never a problem finding the information he is looking for. I liked the section, Top 10 reasons why one should choose them, very much. Quite unique from the sites you see in the internet.

I wish the site had an e-payment gateway with which the user could book the place online using his internet banking account or credit card. Much required if the person lives in some other country and wants to book the place for a visit in the future. I hope St Thomas Condos authorities will take care of this soon.

Little Ironies

With a pamphlet in his hand, Moin looked contented. A sales agent of his cell phone service provider gave him that. In the pamphlet, there was plan for Rs. 2500 with which one could make unlimited calls to anywhere in India. That was what made him so happy. Because, with that he could make as many number of calls he want and talk his heart out to his friends and relatives.

Few days back, he had sent me a forward. There was a cartoon of a person with a cell phone in his ear and fumes coming out from his head in the forward. And a tagline that read, “Excessive use of cell phones may cook your brains alive”.

Why would the cell phone service provider be bothered about all those?

Cost of a Lifestyle

For a weekend movie,

PVR Cinemas, Bangalore
Two matinee tickets – Rs. 440

Kripa Theatre, Trivandrum
Two matinee balcony tickets – Rs. 80

Guess this is what I have to ‘pay’ for becoming a cosmopolitan.

Belated Onam greetings to one and all... After 5 long years, I made it to my home this Onam. Guess this is what marriage could do to a person like me :p

PS: Don't have to say, it made me put a post as well. Not the marriage, but Onam. ;-)
