Where am I?

Right here, but too busy to blog (gasp!) Work is finally winding down sometime this week, so hope to begin posting soon.

That doesn't mean I have been upto nothing: Socha Na Tha has been seen, and am really torn between Abhay's winning smile (amazing) and his stylist, who should be shot (honestly). Ms Takia, was splendid (turns out she ISN'T leaving Bollywood, just becoming more choosy about what she acts in- yay).

Also this past weekend was particularly brilliant- spent Saturday afternoon watching Guru Dutt's forgotten rom-com-noir (!) "12 O'Clock" with The Bollywood Fan- a tiny Blogger meetup.

Also saw 13B- flawed, but good- besides, its Madhavan :)

That said, back to work.

I sometimes wonder why bolly-blogging isnt a paid occupation. It would at least put a stop to work interfering with blogging! I am in the same boat as you at the moment, and cant see the situation changing any time soon. :-(

Here's hoping for more posts, sooooon!

PS: 12 O'Clock is marvelous! Guru Dutt+Waheeda Rehman+Rehman+great songs - how can one go wrong with that combo?

Socha Na Tha is a nice little movie!

I hated 13B though..I guess you've seen my 1.5 star rating :D

P.S. Do watch Little Zizou, if you haven't already. I'm pretty sure you'll like it :)

Ayesha Takia scares me sometimes, with how I think she resembles Mahima Chaudhary. In Home Delivery (2005), we get to see both!

It was a blast watching 12 O'Clock with you, Shweta. I don't think I'll ever forget that one song with Guru Dutt and Waheeda especially, ROTFL. And I'm starting to think we should have completed Preity Woman too (not!), because all of our color commentary made it rather fun ;)

As always, good luck with work!

JJC: Agreed on both counts!

Bollyviewer: Hai that would be so wonderful- I want to write 24-7! I do hope u get a chance to write soon- I miss the regular doses of ur humor :) 12o'clock was pretty decent- I am falling more in love w/ Guru Dutt than ever.

Bhargav: Honestly, I can tolerate almost anything w/ Madhavan, even the terrible "rehna hai tere dil mein" zizou i will watch- thanks.

Crazy On Bollywood: yep, I'd say so- just look in the "Bollywood Reviews" section on the left. here are all the links as well: http://apnieastindiacompany.blogspot.com/2009/02/dev-d.html, http://apnieastindiacompany.blogspot.com/2009/02/random-thoughts-on-dev-d-lovers.html, http://apnieastindiacompany.blogspot.com/2009/02/dev-d-revisited.html, http://apnieastindiacompany.blogspot.com/2009/03/dev-d-and-its-tributes-to-last-devdas.html

Darshit: good news, innit? :D need to rewatch SNT and screencap now.

TBF: Maybe its Ayesha and Mahima's eyes and mannerisms- I can def see that. It was so much fun talking to u and watching the movie! The Priety movie was hilarious- had we finished it, I am certain we'd have laughed through all the supposed pathos :)
