The Coat

I wish my thoughts could swim freely.
Free like a floating leaf on a churning river.
But it is slowed down,
burdened by the wet coat world gifted me.
With no where to go,
the thought drowns slowly as the coat goes heavier.
With no where to run,
it is trapped, chained ,
much like the green trees and wet land,
trapped in a thunderstorm.
With itself, it takes the wet coat.
Take it to the bottom as it sinks
and it holds the coat hard
hoping it never surfaces again.
Hoping it never flows again.

Ishaqzaade : The non-review

Image source : Google

Ishaqzaade, the Movie!A bad remake of QSQT that is so bad that one might even fail to notice the similarity between the two. It took too much of effort on my part to even get the faintest idead  of the thought behind this epic movie.
The story is about a muslim girl and a hindu boy both belonging to political background who are all gearing up for elections. Obviously they shall fall in love but then not all that easily. They are so much agianst each other that you  almost feel for them while they fight over a few cans of diesel and a dance performer. There is pointing of gun and more of "jaan se maar denge" sorts for sometime. All before the dude Parmaa(Arjun Kapur) decides to pee on election posters of the muslim party while, Zoya (Praneeti) fumes and slaps the dude in response, asking for apology. All it takes is the guy jumping inside ladies toilet and landing to Zoyas place (where surprisingly, her brothers are all just too friendly to let him off with just few minor cuts) for the girl to go from "Kill him" to "Awww! My baby". Whaaatdaaaaaawhaat! So, all it takes is some peeing, jumping in the ladies toilet and much overacting to get the girl who would have killed him otherwise!
Before you can even know how on earth they are in love, they secretly get married . After having slept together , the dude reveals that all that love drama was only to get back at the girl and leaves the girl fuming for good reasons!
Parmaa secretly distributes their marriage snaps (hindu wedding) to get the muslim vote banks to go against the muslim party on the pretext of inter religion shaadi and all that. Zoya being the commando girl who went from  "Kill him" to "Awww! My baby" goes to Parmaas place to kill him only for his mother (Where did she come from!) to intervene and give this very wow lecture on true love.Yes, obvioulsy the commando girl ,after almost being raped,did not fall for it right away but then but then,, this is Ishaqzaade! Zoyas family members as well as Parmas want to kill her and as Parmaas grandfather fires, Parmaas mother takes the shot to save her. Parmaa does not even act for the next 5 minutes!
Then he only casually decides to follow his mothers word and save the girl going agains this own family, who now wants to kill both Zoya and Parmaa. Zoya is still all angry and wants to kill Parmaa. All till another song plays, and she is back in love! No Whaaadaaawhaat this time! That was only expected!
The climax is the best part! Zoya and Parma are chased by some 10-15 odd men. A gun battle starts where no less that 500 rounds are fired with not a single bloody hit! Trust me, I have not seen a movie where there has been so many gunshots and no one getting hit! (Noone except for the mother who only jumped in the bullets way to get hit). After a long battle and much overacting and the most pathetic lines you might ever hear, they just decide to shoot each other. Finally they do manage to kill each other and a few bullets end up killing someone ! That pretty much makes Ishaqzaade!

I will not recommend watching this one if you are paying!

That Wind.

The greatness achieved in moments short
and the glory that there never was.
Downs ,then when things were wrong,
more such, and more such was.
From the ground, into the sky
He looked up to ask 'why?'
Wind kissed his silent tears,
more so to wipe them clear.
never to come back the wind passed by
with those moments of inglorious past.

Avengers - The Non Review

Image courtsey Google.

A tad too late for this one. The all talked about, all hyped, bigger than the biggest  planet saver - AVENGERS!

Now, its too very easy to summarise the whole movie. World in danger. Get them all weirdos together. Go Dishum. World lives and so do I.Straight from the world of comics this one has been tailor made for all comic book lovers.(Me included). It starts of with this cranky fellow coming out of nowhere with intentions to take control of earth using some piece of rock that is super duper powerful . The best part is his name - Loki. The name so reminds me of the green vegetable and it did make me wonder if those green slender stuff have been secretly conspiring to take over earth and change everyone into a vegetarian. Okay okay, too off course. So then, he does some woosh with magic stick to team up with some commando guy and physicist to open up the sky. Our own blue sky! That, to let some super disgusting looking things to get in and take over earth. Meanwhile all the weirdos are brought in from different places. All including, the good ole captain, the hulk, and the arrogant iron man. the god of thunder joins them to stop loki, who happens to be his brother. With conflicting egos they come up after a few tussles here there which results in loki escaping as thunder god intercepts after captain and iron man captured him. As a set up for the final battle, loki escapes and opens up a portal letting all sick things from outer space in. What follows is a lot of running around. In between , Hulk takes control slamming flying things to ground and double slamming Loki more in a Rajni way! A nuke is fired to end the war as the things just kept coming. Iron man carries that nuke into the portal while one other hot chick commando closes the portal only in time for iron man to fall back in. So the portal closes with the nuke on the other side.

Such movies are never appreciated for their unpredictability as everyone knows what happens in the end ( The World never ends. Damn 2012!) . The movie is a good watch otherwise, specially for the action comics lovers for all the action sequences and the tiny bits of Hulks humorous side.
