Love Sex aur Dhoka-Review


Ok, I know there are loads o reviews of the movie out there and I dont have to write one. But I am writing this only because I was uber excited about this movie. First of all, applause for Mr. Dibakar… cause I think its a revolution for our movie industry to name a movie with the word sex in it and not have the shiv seniks or the women organizations pounding on theaters.As expected the title Love Sex aur Dhokha worked like a charm. 90% of the theater was filled with men when I watched it, and I knew they would be thoroughly disappointing if they were expecting soft porn.
Iv read a couple of reviews for the movie before writing my own and most of them were raving about how wonderful the movie is.My perspective.. dont expect the movie to be brilliant. Its a low budget movie and a home video production type movie is not an original concept. Like all home video productions.. even this movie seems to slack off and drag on a bit. If your expecting an awesome story you will be disappointed again.. cause the three stories.. that were brilliantly interlinked by the way.. are quite predictable. Whats commendable is how these three stories are plotted and merged at the end and the actors were brilliant. Its always a joy to watch a movie with actors who can actually emote and not be over dramatic.
Overall, its a movie that involves oodles of talent and is worth watching. Its a simple movie and certainly not the kind that will make you wanna kill yourself for watching it.

One Year Older :)

I get so excited a month before my birthday and I make sure I grill all my friends to remember the date.I have recurring nightmares that people would forget that its MY BIRTHDAY!!! Its a big deal.You know what! I wish it was a public holiday. 😀

I grew up celebrating my Birthdays on a big scale.There would be 2 sets of new clothes,lot o chocolates to take to school,a party in the evening with lots o people,balloons,cake,candles,gift wrapped gifts and wide spread of desserts and return gifts. Then, I turned 13 and suddenly I am all grown up for a celebration(sigh!) I am gonna have all of that, no matter how old I am at least once in my life time(even if that makes me look like a self absorbed narcissist) 😉

Have you ever felt like the world around you is zipping by and you are a spectator, watching time rush by. It always feels like that around this time of the year. Ive had 25 years of experience in this world and I don’t know if I am wise enough for a 25 year old. Some part of me refuses to grow up. I wake up everyday and fall in love with so many things and I’m scared I will stop loving them someday.In simpler words… I’m perpetually scared I will turn into an old granny too early. 😀

I was never sure what I wanted to be as a grown up. Kids usually would say ‘I wanna be a doctor’ or ‘I wanna be a scientist’ or ‘a pirate’ or something. All I knew was that ‘I did not wanna be a doctor’ but I wanted to be famous..(it was my lil secret) :)…just simply famous. Ah! its so much easier in my dreams.But today… I don’t even know if people would notice if I disappear one day. Oh my! I sound so morbid :D… K it might not be that bad, but yeah.. I’m not famous ‘YET’ 🙂

I’m certainly not a big fan of growing up.. well who is. I wake up everyday telling myself, that I’m going to be a cheerful and loving person today, and some days it is easy to be that person, but it seems to be getting harder and harder to be like that… its almost a challenge. Well,life’s never easy I guess, if anything it keeps getting tough.But the point is… here I am dealing with problems in life as gracefully as I can. I have survived all the tough patches and made it this far.. unimpaired. 🙂 and its cause o the love and support I get from every single person I know in my life.
Love you all tons!!!
