The day that was...

Yesterday was a different day for reasons more than one (Obviously, what a statement this is? …. Obviously, every day is different, and has something happening different from other days!)

Well, my bro was going back to Delhi, to get en-route his quest for professional excellence – in plain terms, going to join his company. And here I was, his “I-know-all” elder bro, trying to guide him and prepare him for the thicks-and-thins of life – without realizing even for a moment that he has grown up (like everyone does, with time!) ..and again, obviously, so is the case for everyone.

Infact, just the day before, I let him drive and I sat beside him – whoa! The thrills I got out of the drive made me sweat – not that he was driving very fast, nor was it rash driving in any sense, but it’s just that I am his elder bro, and I am bound to question whatever happens! I can feel now why every time I drive, my dad has a few words to contribute every now and then. Guess it’s a part and parcel of everyone.

And just before he was going to board his flight, I started preaching yet again (what should I call myself – A caring bro, or a stupid idiot, trying to interfere in everything?) – foolish idiot! The more and more one says, more and more it becomes irrelevant – that is what I have been saying, but never really thought about it, till yesterday.

Anyhow, that’s one. Secondly, met up with good ol’ Military school mates – seniors mostly – it’s so so so good to get back in touch with those who were there in times, which you can not even recall perfectly now – it’s simply amazing! No words can explain the feelings – Talks with Amar, then Deepak, were awesome. And then, found out Amit too – networking helps! :)

Thirdly, watched this movie called Metro (or is it Life in a …Metro!) – except ‘Apne’ Dharam paaji, I guess the movie would fall in the present times – though a tad bit exaggerated, it still goes well with the times – as one of my friends said, the “sentaap” in the movie is a li’l bit too much, I differ from her thoughts, and I would rather say, that once in a while, this goes. Obviously (yet again obviously? I guess I’ve gained a liking for the word), everyone is game when it comes to comic movies and humorous activities, but if you say that you only are game for comic ventures, you are not defining yourself as being cooolll (I have known this school of thought – which says that I watch only comic and cool movies because it reflects my personality!!! Awwwww.. I am amazed on how everyone in the world is so cool! And comic by essence). Coming back to the talks of the movie, it is a nicely knit story with innumerable people interconnected – Irrfan and Sen do the honors of entertaining – rest all have contributed in their own ways – Kangna is gorgeous as she always is – though I don’t really concur with her role, but that’s what producers’ job is, right? Not mine! Worth one watch.

Coming up – the review of Dharam paaji’s clan, the “Apne” – the movie of the decade (though I’ve already heard that Aap Ka Suroor a.k.a. Himmesh is topping the charts of such honors of movie of the decade or the century, but I think Dharam paaji need to be given due credit for his contribution in Chupke Chupke and Sholay, if nothing else) – Hence, I would still nominate ‘Apne’ to the awards – I am going to get front row tickets (Yeah front row, not the balcony, or the rear comfortable seats of PVR – I wish to feel “closer” to the movie, you see! ) advance booked for the opening show!
