My journey from Hyderabad to Mumbai in a sleeper class by the way, was a nightmare… I was visited by at least 4 eunuchs during my journey and I was scared to death.. believe me… I some how managed to maintain my “i swear il kick you in your b**** if you touch me” look, n hence I was spared.My advice… never travel in a sleeper class from Hyderabad to Mumbai cause its the noisiest train ever.
Finally reached my destination and I was sooo looking forward to spending time with my girl friend. My dear darling friend said we were going to have awesome fun but before that, we need to go visit a skin doc… so she calls the doc and makes her appointment and then we rush out and travel across Mumbai, searching for this one doc who stays in some neverland.. anyways, we finally find him and go in to meet him.So the tiny doc(thats what my frnd calls him by the way..)asks us which one of us is dying of skin disease, after that was confirmed, he asks my friend the med history and my friend rattles on for ever and gives him a huge list of products that was part of her regime… and for some strange reason she couldn stop giggling… and the doc was quiet amazed at all the giggling but the poor soul laughed along and kept his cool 😀 The cause of all the giggling… my friend kept chanting : ‘what a tiny tiny tiny guy’ in her head all the time. After the doc convinced her that she wasn goin to die of the skin disease we headed to her office. She said ‘oh its goin to be a few mins thats all… ‘ which meant a lowely half hour social visit. We come out of her office and my darling friend’s skin catches fire, so we decided the sun was not good for her disease so we cancel our movie plans and get back home…after a lazy afternoon my friend gets a call from a company she recently interviewed for and realizes that they were ready to pay her bags of money…. she is thrilled and informs half her family about it in record time…oh!! jij and ravi.. shubha is goin to be really rich after today so you know who to call if you need some greens 😉
So we finally head out to watch a movie… we reach the theater and decided to watch ‘My Name Is Khan’. Since its a Yash Chopra’s film I mentally prepared myself for all the emotional drama that we were goin to be subjected to, and even before I stepped into the theater I knew I was goin to hate the movie. We settle down in the half empty theater and laugh our hearts out at Yash Chopra’s trailers for “Koochi Koochi Hota Hai” ( a remake of kuch kuch hota hai but its an animation.. I dont know what made Karan Johar think that people would enjoy watching puppy dog versions of SRK, Kajol and Rani huh …) Anyways, the movie starts and 2 scenes into the movie and I here sniffing… My friend with her super active tear glands was weeping even before kajol’s histrionics.
I actually liked watching the movie and only because,my friend was sniffing at all the right scenes and laughing at all the right ones keeping up the spirit of the movie.Suddenly I realized that every Karan Johar movie I watched and enjoyed was because I watched it with her.
Anyways, about the movie… well, it was a good first half and I almost felt nostalgic watching Kajol and SRK together once again.. and I was also amazed by SRK’s acting skills.. but the second half just kept dragging on for ever… Karan Johars’s emotional diarrhea totally kills the movie… by the end of it, SRK starts sounding like a robot and Kajol gets a wee bit annoying… way to go KJ you like end up sucking out all the joy out o the movie…
It was not one o those movies that messes with my head and ruins my day… so overall I had a decent first day in Mumbai n was even better cause I get to spend quality time with my girl friend 🙂
Day 2 & 3
We were being clowns the whole day and all we did was talk and walk like SRK in MNIK… 😀 Sat down and discussed life and men and it took awhile to convince my friend that ‘birds aren conspiring and plotting against her’.. for some strange reason she is eternally scared that she will be attacked by birds some day and thats how she will die!! 😀
Watched ‘Up In The Air’ and totally wuved the movie… guys its worth watching this one beliemme…
Even after 4 visits to this city I never once saw an actor..I kept complaining and cursing at my luck and faaaainallly, I see Mona Vasu and Vidya Malvade, although they didn make my day… I finally did see ppl who were on the screen… went shopping hoping to buy loads o new clothes and ended up with just 2 kurthi’s… Damn these malls… we walk out all upset and find the crowd in the mall goin absolutely crazy… my sharp eyed friend scans the crowd and spots Vivek Oberoi..
I couldn believe my luck… 3 famous ppl in 2 days.. Damn!! I should ave wished for somethin else..
After that we go to Bandra to sit by the sea and watch the sun set… We saw more then a sun set… we went searching for a shitless, crowless place for us to sit and finally found a bench… and so we settle down to watch the sun go down and we notice this guy sitting right in front o us… with his girlfriend, completely oblivious to the entire world… (o boy the disadvantages of low waist jeans).. so me and my friend sit and laugh our heads off and it was fun watching the Janta walk by… some ignored the skin show, some smiled and every time a family walked by, the husbands would call out to their wives and point to this poor man and they would laugh out loud… while the poor soul sat there completely in love and unaware of the whole world laughing at him… 😀 (I’am sooo going to end up in hell…)
As always it was 3 days of absolute bliss, joy and madness… 🙂
