Call it Dev D, Double dhamaka or Deadly D. I was delirious after watching the movie. Okay, I know the movie released aeons back, but I could'nt watch it all these days and last week I took a courageous decision. I preferrerd to watch DD over Shree 420, contemporary scoring over classic! I am soo glad it lived up to the enormous hype I created for it. The part I liked the most was the minimal of fuss involved, Paro moves on, Chanda knows where she is caught and so does Dev. It is in sync with today's times and people can relate to it. The beauty of classics lies in adapting them with changing times. I am all for rewriting Ramayana and Mahabaratha, how will you help another generation relate to it unless it's in their terms? Anyhow, another part I loved in the movie was when Dev narrowly avoids a car collision in the end and realises he stills stands a chance! Life always provides you with an outlet, you look sideways and you dont see it....DD was also held together by that fab threesome and a great score!
Do you know there are 12515 courageous men in India? All of them applied to get married to Rakhi Sawant...Army would be so more useful.
The best part of the summer for me is it's fruits. Sadly this time its all botoxed fruits...oranges are sour, Melons are impossible to find and mangoes let's not go there...My favorite thing in the world is to cut a ripe mango(Alphonso) keep it in the fridge overnight, add a little milk and a dash of powdered sugar...heaven! Eat it with a novel...Harry Potter/Agatha Christie..something you read a zillion times but still want to read....yum!
