late nights, indian chinese food, movies, yawn!

Friday, July 04, 2003: Later that evening (tinny piano music please) I hogged miThaa_ii miscellania from India, courtesy of a friend who just returned from an India trip: bhaakarwaaDii, peDhe and kaajuu katlii from Chitale Bandhu Mithaiwaale, puran pollii. Caught Jhankaar Beats again with a different set of friends and still enjoyed the film, even catching a few lines of dialogue that I hadn't latched on to earlier. On this note, Channel V is paying tribute to Pancham all month this month (readers in India only, please).

Saturday, July 05, 2003: The most productive thing I did before evening was probably doing my laundry. Which goes to show exactly how much I achieved after waking up well past high noon. For the last few days, I've been hogging delicacies. The empty boxes in the trash can are growing in number as we emulate vultures and grab these originals from overseas.

A chance sequence of events culminated in dinner at Hot Wok. And then it was time (again) for the movie du nuit, which turned out to be (for me) a rerun of Andaaz {experiences. from last time}. It wasn't a total waste of time, though. We entered ROTFL mode (never left it in fact) at the bad dresses, the terrible acting, the atrocious looks, the dumb choreography, the Dhin-Chaak mu[sic] from Nadeem Shravan (who else!). We groaned in complete exasperation at the coda of the film firmly entrenched in Dhakiyaanuusii old-hat outdated dialogue harping on outdated norms. Sheesh, grow up! Priceless bits of dialogue too, including "light chalii ga_ii hai. mai.n chalataa huu.N". And I also found out what GI Joe stood for: Girdhar Ishwar Jaunpurwaalaa. Couple of comic lines to note (served up by an actor seen frequently on Jaspal Bhatti's Flop Show): naach na jaane bai.ngan teDhaa and sau sonaar kii ek chamaar kii. And yes, there's also the predictable dhin chaaka dhaa chika song too.
