the mind of an unmarried woman




Finally I gave up resisting the urge of writing ‘bout Parineeta.
A gud lesson I learnt is never to watch a movie after reading like a zillion revus on it, but cant help it, usually I’m one of those who just manages to take a peek before the movie leaves the theatres. Going by those standards, it is still ok.

Itz an okey dokey, once watchable type of movie but what I missed most was the total lack of romance in it (please don’t mention the scenes of passionate love making)
Wat I mean is watever happened to woh nazare churanaa, sharmana , nakhre karna, musukurana type of romance? Devdas scores high on those points.

Sanjay Dutt n Dia Mirza were big turn offs of the movie. Sanjay Dutt looked old enough to be Vidya Balan’s father.
Hope VidyaB is not a one movie wonder n we get to see more of her.
Also this flick got me thinking ‘bout overhauling my wardrobe –include more of salwaar suits esp. those with low-cut backs hanging on for their dear life onto some kinda “dooris”(strings).

These lines of Galib from this movie refuse to leave the bylanes of my memory

hum saans lethe hai to charcha ho jaata hai
woh katal bhi karte hai to kabhar nahi hoti

Dia Mirza a turn off? is she plastic fantastic too?

RT said...

Yeah.. Agree about Sanjay Dutt there.. He really looked Ms. Balans's dad..
But I went for the movie with 0 expectations (you know, Sarathchandra chatterjee-like-tragic end )..and found it quite nice actually mush or otherwise..:-)

Swathi said...

Handa said...

the correct sher is....
"hum aah bhi lete hain to ho jaate hain budnaam,
woh qatl bhi kar dein to shikwa nahin hota...."

Swathi said...

@dopppsy
u do write gud fiction.

@handa
thx for pointing to the original...
(wondering how u dropped by my blog??)

Arvind said...

i think the movie is very good... Siaf was just great. You dont seem to have liked the movie very much.
Yeah... i also ahve this habit of taking a peek, as you call it, at the movie reviews. My favorite haunt for that is rediff.

pip Pip,
Arvind

Swathi said...

@arvind
it isnt as if i din like the movie but when someone has read too many revus of it ..u'd go with expectations touching the sky ...guess u get the drift..

rediff revus..hmm.. never bin my haunt.

I've done a post on Parineeta too, apart from other things. Let me know what you think.

Lost in trance... said...

...they HAD TO do the "thod whatever(Shekar, wazit?) thod" scene at the end...aaarggghh...

ssteppenwolf said...

Well, Handa is wrong too. The correct sher is :


"Hum aah bhi bharte hain to ho jaate hain budnaam,
Woh qatl bhi kar dein to charcha nahin hota...."
