jus some movie talks...

jus a bit lazy to post :(

This weekend am going to Chennai with my roommates to meet our friends thr... so, hoping to have a nice time thr..
Apart from this, nothing much happening.. I wish to go home again.. but won't be going till next monthend :(

Watched some more movies in TV..
"The Shawshank Redemption" - And what a great movie it was... My friend forced me to watch this one and am thankful for him...

We also bought the cd of "You've got mail" which is one of the best romantic movies ever made.. isn't it? Am saying one of the cos I regard "Notting Hill" in this category too :)

And one more movie I saw was "Bicentennial man" - The movie in which Robbin Williams is a robot and slowly tries to become a human. I found this movie to be nice to watch.. and I always admire Robin Williams, ever since I saw his "Patch Adams" movie, a great great movie....

When it comes to English movies, am a great fan of Julia Roberts.. and I've got almost all her greatest movie hits in CDs or DVDs..
Notting Hill, My best friend's wedding, Pretty Woman, Erin Brokovich are some of my fav of Julia Roberts..
I also like Tom Hanks alot for his acting.. esply in Forrest Gump, Cast Away, You've got mail, Saving Private Ryan.., etc..

Anyone seen the movie - "Sleepless in Seattle"?
And what abt "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset". My friend was saying that this one is a great one to watch. And there is one more movie in which the hero is blind and falls in love with a lady.. i forgot the name... it was a lovely movie and great acting... watched it longgg back.. Haaa.. got it... a li'l search in google helped me.. Its Val Kilmer's "At First Sight" :)
Do tell me some of the classic movies in English of these kinds... I would love to watch movies like these and add to my collection. So, do add ur suggestions too.. :)

whats in a day..

Today being Valentine's Day, let me begin by wishing you all "A Happy Valentine's Day". As I stated in the last years post on the same day, I don't know why the habit of celebrating a day for lovers come into existence when ppl in love feel that all those days being together or even thinking abt the ones they love are special for them. Anyway, since its being followed for a long time, am not going to say that its of no use. Enjoy your day with ur love, ur friends and ur family... :)

Couple of days back I happened to listen to a song in Radio City FM. This one sung by Alka Yagnik called "Saare sapne...". A fantastic song which I used to listen frequently when this album got released but afterwards jus forgot abt it. That day I noted down the song and downloaded it from the web..
Since I listen to lots of songs, I have a habit of noting down songs that I like, in my mobie as a draft message and as soon as I sit infront of the computer, download all those songs..
Here is a small list of songs that I downloaded recently and which I liked alot.. do listen to these..
  1. Alka Yagnik's Saare Sapne kahin kho gaye....
  2. Babul Supriyo's Kucch Aisa Lagta Hai.... from the album Kucch Aisa Lagta Hai. I saw this song in MTV and liked it instantly.
  3. Tere Liye.... - From the same Babul Supriyo's album, another cool song..
  4. Shaan's Gum Sum Ho Kyun... - from Tanha Dil album
  5. Martina McBride's Valentine. Thanks to Jaya for pointing to such a nice song. I liked the lyrics of this song on seeing it in Jaya's blog and downloaded. The music of this song also impressed me.. jus simple piano..
  6. Looking for Shania Twain's "What made you say that" song. A great song and nice lyrics too.. but couldn't get the downloadable version :( Does anyone have this song?

Now for another favourite topic... cricket..
I went home a bit earlier y'day to watch the final overs and was right on time to watch Dhoni's innings.. Great to see our guys going 2-1 up....
Sachin, Yuvraj and Dhoni were jus amazing..
After the match got over, I watched the straight drive show conducted by Sanjay Manjrekar in Ten Sports. In that, Nasser Hussain said one thing which I liked very much...
Nasser Hussain said something like this... After watching this innings by Sachin, all those ppl who talked nonsense abt Sachin after Karachi test match should find a big hole and jump into that :))
Lets see what comes of the next two matches...

taggie time atlast...

Completing the tag atlast...
Tagged by Doll, Neetie and Chandu...

The tag is: coming up with 8 different points of their perfect lover.

I don't have any big expectations... my perfect gal should jus have...
  1. The eyes of Aishwarya Rai
  2. The lips of Angelina Jolie
  3. The smile of Jennifer Aniston/ Juhi Chawla
  4. The figure of Salma Hayek
  5. The personality of Julia Roberts
  6. The chirpiness of Kajol
  7. The voice of Lata Mangeshkar
  8. Last but not the least... the love and compassion for fellow human beings shown by Mother Teresa

Easy to get a gal like this isn't it :P

Ok, to be serious, all tht I want is a gal who is caring; sharing; understanding family values; even if she is modern, shouldn't lose the traditional touch; giving the necessary space when needed and at the same time the support when needed.. and she is sure to get all these from me too.. :D

As far as I remember, almost all of my blogmates have taken up this tag. If atall anyone hasn't taken it, u can go ahead and take it :)

So, ready for tomorrows second ODI? lets see what happens this time..

updates... RDB and Kochi trip...



Atlast... saw Rang De Basanti on Friday evening with my friends.
A Big Thanks to Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, ARR, Aamir and all the actors and technicians behind this movie... They all have done a great greatt greattt job.. I was lost in the movie even after hours of seeing it and my friends had to literally pull me out of tht mood... :)
A must-see movie... I don't have words to say how it was... I don't want to rate it or review it with any other movies. I won't say its the best movie i've seen but considering the type of movies that come out nowadays, its certainly the best one..

The scene - Atul Kulkarni's recital of “Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna” was simply amazing... brought tears in my eyes and goosebumps too.. You'll notice quite a few scenes like tht.. Please do watch it without fail.... Thats all I would say...

Then, as I had written in one of my previous posts, I had been to Kochi for my cousin's engagement and came back to Bangalore today morning.
I had a wonderful time there with many of my cousins, relatives and their kids...
Its been quite sometime since we all had such family gathering and we were jus pulling each others legs.. and ofcourse my cousin-bro was at the receiving end most of the time, as it was his engagement... We even discussed and named their kid.. :)) Heights of our imaginations....
Now, only four of us remain in the unmarried category in our cousins gang.. and am the only guy.. So, tht makes me the Most Eligible Bachelor in our family... :D

These are the updates from my side.. Now, let me get back to my work... :)
I know I still have a tag post pending.. tht'll be my next one soon..
