Month: December 2008

Bravo..long live Mumbai..

Last month 26 was the date when the barbaric ultras unleashed the terror on the economic heart of India- Mumbai.
The very mention of this city brings a peculiar anxiety in our hearts. The fast moving life, bollywood, continuous struggle to match up with the life..is all which symbolizes Mumbai- the city of dreams. No one ever imagined in their lives that 26/11 will completely change the mind set of the city…
I will not delve in the incident which occurred on that fateful evening as reams of  paper already have been devoted for that.

Just like any other citizen of India, even my heart feels deeply sorry for those who lost their loved one..may god give them all the strength and courage to deal with this trauma. Since the day this incident took place I was sort of itching to write something on this whole issue, but somewhere in my heart I was waiting for something…and that something was fading of people’s memories after some time which normally happens in our day to day life, as if we have made ourselves accustomed to such kind of attacks. But this time it was crossing the thresh hold of patience of an average Indian, and I am relieved that my wait is still not over..people this time are just not ready to buy philosophies like “Never say die spirit of Mumbai” and so on..this time they want some action  no matter if we have to declare a war on Pakistan , we are ready for that as well, but something has to happen.
I am really eager to see that what happens in coming few months. with general elections due in mid 2009 I wonder what strategy government takes but something has to take place…I will just pray that once again people should not forget all that happened in name of  “never say die spirit of Mumbai”..

In the end..one cliche is coming to my mind..” LIFE Goes on….” but my question is till what point…hope we are not tested till a point where every thing ends and only anarchy remains..

God bless us all..and Mumbai…

Queries Queries Queries…alas all are same…

Well..with SNAP over its time for me to get back to my usual avatar of koolrahulgwl. yeah that’s my nick on Pagalguy.com. I assume that reader is well aware of this portal..still for those who are not..khas aapke liye (exclusively for you) I am telling you ;)..that this portal is for MBA aspirants, where they punch in there queries and get the back their answers. I am handling SCIT thread out there. Bored?? ok ok no self boasting..

well I wanted to write this post out of sheer ummmmm..leave it…
just take a look of what people ask
Mr X :- “Can you please tell me about the course structure”..
yarr website kya mere pappa ke dekhne ke liye banayi hai..C’mmon guys I guess we have that much of sense to understand that today before any thing, we ask for the website and our first impression is based on that. But I just don’t understand that why junta is just not interested in taking that small pain which will reduce their efforts in search for more  information.
Never mind this is how things work..I really get pissed off (although I should not) when people keep asking questions like “what is the package?”..when you are in IT,  package is one thing which you would love to answer at last..because things move so fast that today what I am telling might look false tomorrow.
Anyways I have to uphold the status of Hardcore Pagal (yeah the designation or rank which this portal gives as you go up the ladder).
But I really wish that when people hit that submit button before posting their query, at least they should check for the previous responses…
Even when I am writing this post my gtalk is popping up notification for new query. I wonder..what will happen.. I just hope people don’t take this post of mine as an exercise of self boasting or anything remotely connected to it..
Anyways…happy solving queries to me…long live koolrahulgwl…;)

What Jodi man…!!!???

With 2008 turning out to be a lackluster year for apna bollywood, all hopes now are pinned on year end releases like SRK starrer Rab ne bana de Jodi, Amir’s Ghazni and the much hyped Chandni Chowk to China. Among these three, first one to hit box office last week was Rab ne bana di Jodi. This movie was special because of number of factors.
1) Firstly it marks the return of Aditya Chopra after looong eight years so this one is his latest directorial venture post Mohhbatein.
2) Secondly this movie comes with the reigning king khan SRk after the much hyped but highly criticized fanfare of OSO.
3) Thirdly but not that important is the fact that this movie is launch vehicle of debutant pretty lass Anushka Sharma.rnbdj11

Thus stakes are high as bollywood is already carving badly for some hit to cheer the already damp mood post 26/11 strikes.
Anyways..Coming down to business the movie review…well well well..Seriously saying I wasn’t in favour to waste my precious 110 bucks on this movie as the first day review from my friends were already more than enough to keep me away from this flick. Few went to an extent to term this movie as most pathetic one of the year and were complaining for symptoms of insomnia after watching this movie…

Still as the cliché goes..that man proposes and god disposes…so happened with me..as suddenly Monday noon saw Subu, Rupesh and Sharif suddenly coming with this movie plan that I just couldn’t say no to them. Movie venue was our as usual loyal E-square..really I wonder what would have happened if there was no E-square..Symbians knows the answer well..

It was quite surprising to see such a large crowd for the movie on Monday noon..( I wonder why India’s Industrial growth is going south…).
I love watching the movie since beginning that includes the post credit roll advertisement and trailers as well, I really don’t have any reason for that but this is the way I am. However the movie started.
Well talking about this movie it is all about how a common wins back his lady luck. This movie is similar in terms of one movie which starred Rajpal Yadav I don’t recall the name but initial part does consists of that hangover.
Sharukh Khan every times does something with his character which just leave you craving for a bit more, out here the king khan has done the same with his portrayal of common man.

This is probably first time that SRK has added such kind of role in his acting arsenal. Without conveying much dialogue he conveys the complete pain of Mr. Suri.
Plot of movie is simple, Sharukh goes to a marriage of his professor’s daughter where a tragedy occurs and all the baraatis dies (including the bride) in an accident. Leaving the female lead Anushka in a difficult situation thus like normal routine types movie apna babuji takes wada from Mr Suri (Srk) to hold hands of his dear daughter…resulting in marriage of two completely different soul..even on such emotional scenes few like Rupesh and other can’t resist themselves from commenting like “ Sala shadi attend karne gaya tha ulta shadi hi kar ke a gaya”..never mind, then incidents unfold as suspected..the girl just don’t like her hubby who is straight out of Gandhian era sort of, where the guy just keep his emotions within expecting the girl to understand his love. I just don’t understand who the hell must be wearing such kind of look in these days as srk did, those thick glass frame, routine type shirts, pants and sports shoes on them..eeee…even common man has also grown smart today..rnbdj31

Anyways..suddenly the girl wants to participate in the dance competition where she finds her dance partner in form of new renovated SRK..now this is one big flaw of movie..Come on yaar..how can this happen again and again since ages that all the audience in the hall knows that the new look guy is the same old guy with moustaches and glasses but why our poor actress just can’t realize this..infact this problem had been there since ages in our bollywood where even our poor villain is unable to recognize the hero whom he had been troubling throughout the movie just because of that simple moustache and a monkey cap..come on man..aub to bus karo…still movie goes on with alter ego of Mr. Suri making an entry in form of Raj the JAT..

The movie is just fine till this whole dance school drama starts unfolding after that trust me movie has just lost its focus. Portrayal of Raj by SRK is too loud and bitter…it really hurts your eyes whenever SRK appears in form of Raj . After few reels the actress looses her heart to this guy (Raj who is apna MR. Suri only), and penultimate reels witnesses plan of eloping with this guy who is none other than his own husband..final few minutes of movie are really bukwas..dialouge like “ Mujhe aap mein mujhe apna rab dikhta hai” common yaar mujhe to har ladki mein hi rab dikhta hai..hahahaha…but towards end you really start feeling ki when this movie will end..or start feeling ki bhai aub plz is movie ko the end kar do…

No need to tell the ending of the movie..the movie falls short on expectations especially when it comes from director like Aditya chopra. Although I know this as well that movie will do huge business because of SRK factor..but I really didn’t like the movie neither in terms of music nor the story line..but still..kya kare srk hai to control nahi hota 😉 ….
Go for it if you are a hardcore Sharukh fan….else there is nothing much to boast for..will give 4.5 out of 10…

Recessionized…..

It seems like that recession has caught the attention across the globe..so how can our fellow Indians can remain unaware about it..anyways..point is..that 2009 will be the worst year to graduate as an MBA.
with December almost approaching towards mid, and we have only 2.5 months left as march end is always left for semester end examinations. with such scenario I just don’t know what will happen with my placement dreams. up till now I got two opportunities of facing the interviews and messed up both.
Situation right now is just like Uday Chopra dreaming in Dhoom movie..similarly when I started off with MBA..I had a dream..like..”yarr kum se kum 5.5 lacs to milega hi milega..uske neeche to lene ka hi nahi”..or ” Lets get placed by year end..and then we will go to Goa..” but it seems as if some body has punctured the tyre…bole to hawa nikal di hai..

and when we talk these days..the only word which hits the tounge is recession and then only some discussion starts off…height is..that even a Re 1 increase for a cup of tea is linked to recession…damm it yarr…kya socha tha aur kya ho gaya..

as if now out of batch strength of 192 almost 50 something are counting there chickens happily rest are just looking for that elusive oppertunity..on the top of this..companies come with a mind set to reject a candidate rather then selecting them..I have seen people being rejceted after seven rounds of interview..man..what is this..theek hai naukri nahi deni hai to pehle bata do na yarr..why to torture a candidate and then kick his a** and show him the door…
I don’t know what’s in store on this placement front..but certainly increase in revenues of booz companies is something to cheer about..atleast some one is getting advantage of this recession…

Every day starts with thinking about placement, every other conversation  starts with the word placement and probably ends with it as well.Earlier when we use to see our friends the first reaction was waving your hand or just saying a simple “hi”…but now you see a friend and the first sentence which comes out of mouth is..”Yaar koi company aa rahi hai kya”..or ” kya bhai kya scene chal raha hai..any news..”. God know what will happen..time will tell..but seriously..at mid of the night if some thing has promopetd me to stir my upper compartment then it should be something serious…

GOD BLESS US..is what I can say..and hope for the best is what I can expect from the future..till then enjoy being recessionized..you never know Kal ho na hao

This is for you my life..:)

gratitude

After a long hiatus..I finally decided to write something..it is about a person in my life who has been catylitic to so many changes in my life..and this post of mine is dedicated to that individual……it’s just my gratitude towards that person who taught me lessons of handling a relationship, how to deal with your unjustified expectations, how to deal with insecurity, how to deal with ego..dont worry I didnt join any crash course of  ” Handling a relationship in 30 days”…but all this just happened just because of that person being in my life…sometimes I feel to be blessed to have that person in my life…
Now I feel that how wrong I was about myself…people around you keep teaching you something or other..that’s why never ignore your best friend’s advice…never shun off the suggestion given by your loved ones..they do have some point to make..because they are the ones who understand you the most…

One individual can make huge impact in your life and same thing is happening with me, with this adorable personality around me, no one is perfect so is this center point of my life..but I love that person as she is…
Her shimmering beauty, her shear presence makes all the difference in the life..I don’t know what to say…but friend you have changed my life forever…I have no words left to describe my feelings…I even don’t know why I am writing this post..but something is changing withing me…may be I am a better individual now…

Thanks my life…….god bless you….:)
