BLACK

I am lost for words...mind has gone numb...somehow feel violated...what a powerful performance...watta show it was...dint knew how two hours flew...got hooked onto it for every single second of it...an amazing experience...cinema is a powerful medium..had a hearty experience....never have i became this serious after watching a movie...and never had the hangover lasted this long...if its a comedy u relate the jokes, repeat them and relive the fun moments...but movies of this sort make u sit up and something awakes in u and refuses to lie down for a while...BLACK did it for me...i have heard a lot abt it...bt never had the patience to see it...my friends suggested never to try it for its very sad and not my kind of movie...i was browsing thru the channels and found this one running in one of them...out of curiosity stayed on tht channel for a while and the vigil ended two hours later...i want to wear a hat and take it off for each and every single actor in tht movie...especially tht gal...the young rani mukerji..i cudnt help but watch teary eyed in the scene where she overcomes the demons insider her and feels the water in gay abandon...she mouths the word mom first and the eager love hungry look in her dads face to hear her calling him papa....the sudden rush of eagerness to learn new words....wow..watta performance and watta scene...Amitabh bacchan has lived the role...guess no one cud've justified it better...It might have been inspired by Helen keller...I can understand and appreciate the efforts put in by rani mukerji...no one can deny the applause due to her...but i am dumbfounded by tht lil kids performance who is the young rani...was tht acting or real?!! many wud've had this question for mr.Bhansali...in the scene where she fights with amitabh over the dinner table and the water fountain scene...well....i can bet tht the tears on Amitabhs eyes wudn't have been glycerine induced...if amitabh was mr.original who was distant second to the lil gal in the first half...he comes close second to the gale force called rani in the second half...the scene where they rush to the college happily laafing at the foolishness of rani insisting on goin on the opposite direction...BLACK humour, it is...the scene where she protests her teacher..voicing out..err..i mean..feeling out her opinion thru amitabh sayin for dreaming u dnt need eyes..u dnt need to c anything..for she cant see but still has dreams ...dream filled heart...its almost impossible to imagine the man behind this...mr.SL Bhansali...he IS a showman...no doubt..but wat prompted him to make this movie...thts something which would make interesting reading i guess...not to forget the role of Ravi K chandrans camera work...i can understand why rani mukerji insisted on him behind the camera...certain scenes are visual delights which even a layman like me could appreciate...background score is another strength to the movie which lifts it to international level...I hate BLACK for making me cry...I hate BLACK for making me feel so emotional...I hate BLACK for making me realise how much people struggle to get things which i take for granted as basics...OSCAR or no oscar...in my heart BLACK has made an indelible impact

Mumbai Helpline number

Ppl!!
Pls pass on this mumbai helpline number to all ur friends.. Mumbai Helpline Number: 022-22005388 ~~Please pass this to all...

Tears in heaven

Eric clapton would have sung it on a different tune...Yesterday was another sad day on the history of Mumbai..some heartless creatures let out mayhem on the suburban trains..for a change the news channels decided to leave out the gore of the situation and concentrated on helping the victims in communicating..nice deed..i really dont understand the motive behind such terrorist attacks...wat do they think??if they detonate a few bombs.. a country of 100 crore people will beg before them and offer watever these misguided wrongly motivated soulless creatures demand on a platter? NEVER is the answer. And it should be told loud and clear so that those deaf ears can hear.

In a recent mock survey Mumbai was voted 35th in etiquette and courteousness..the people who did the survey shd've seen the mumbiakars yesterday in action..strangers giving lift to stranded people...offering their mobiles so that the passengers of those ill fated trains can communicate...queuing up at hospitals to donate blood...autowallahs dropping people at their places for free...We should salute the spirit of Mumbaikars...harder they are hit...tougher they become and get up with more vigour and strength..whether its natural calamity like last years rains..or heartless brutual attacks like this...their spirit is undying and only grows more in strength...

Its high time the people who encourages such acts realise that with terror they can only get back what they are sowing..however just their cause is. I used to have my reservations on capital punishment..feel even the gruesome of deaths is a minmal punishment for people who have done such a dastardly act.
