In Good Company . . .

Wonder If any of you have ever heard of this Movie; nice one! I just chanced upon it on the Movie Server and thought why not!! But it really turned out to be a fantastic flick ... and had a great message in it ... what's more is that what it said is what I myself have been feeling for the past few days. Here's the link Its about this 52 year old salesman Dan Foreman(Dennis Quad) who works for a sports magazine but suddenly finds himself demoted and being 'bossed' over by a 26 year old Carter Duryea (Topher Grace) when the magazine is taken over by a another company. At first this new exec is all booming with ideas about the company's new 'synergy' strategy. 'Synergy' is shown as some shitty management jargon which is far from the company's real-life business. While during the movie Dan has to lay off his old buddies while not agreeing with the company's new policies and has a hard time; the end makes things


Watched the film BLACK today - a movie about a deaf (and dumb) and blind girl and her teacher. It is good to see that the general public is also exited about such contemporary cinema than just song-and-dance masala movies. There are some dialogues in this movie that really touched me from inside . . . "Its not eyes that dream, the mind dreams .. and so even the blind can dream" - very true . Even medically its some electrical signals that reach our brain that cause the illusion on pictures which we see as dreams. These signals like real vision don't originate at the eyes but in our mind. "Black does not stand for misery and frustration - it is the color of knowledge, the color of wisdom .... the color of the graduation robe" - how true again !! Even today most text that we read whether in print or electronic is Black. Black indeed is the color of knowledge !!

Naach! Emotions 'a-part'

Just got over watching 'Naach' ... the movie is bogus .. another version of the age-old story 'Abhiman' (featuring Bacchan Sr. & Mother Bacchan)...and some semi-porn stuff added... But what struck me here is the potrayal of the habit that most boyz/men have(may be even girlz/women have it .. but I aint sure) - a habbit to conceal your emotions...Whether its love or sorrow - men never speak .. and then I dont know why its always that we expect men/boyz to propose to the girl first!! Leave alone expressing love.. even expressing sorrow is taboo .. and nowadays in the (so-called) civilised world even anger is not a permitted emotion to show (though in the old patriarchial societies anger was taken to be a symbol of manhood) .. so whenever you feel any emotion strongly - back out! Move out of public, escape in loneliness .. and sulk if you would. All this usually further aggravates your BP (figuratively) and deepens your feelings .. and though one might feel I am
