Aa Dekhen Zara : The Review

April 21, 2009 Leave a comment

People who read my previous rant should know that this was coming. A detailed and engaging view on “Aa Dekhen Zara”.I cannot recall when in recent times I have written two reviews back to back but it seems that happy times are back for my blog.  Anyway, more than a year back I wrote a review of the Neil Mukesh Starrer  “Johnny Gaddar” . I have mentioned there that this new lad showed promise. And he doesn’t disappoint here either. The only things I didn’t think has gone quite right here is the fact that his role has become a lot stereotypical. He is dirt poor, he gets a means to make lot of money not through conventional means and finally pumping up adrenaline to make the end justify the means. But this movie is not about Neil only-theres a lot into it.Lets start with the trailer:

Synopsis: Neil is an extremely poor  freelance photographer often having his a$$ boned by camera thieves,goons and of course,credit card recovery agents. Whatever meager means he has is because of a not so generous editor of a newspaper. One fine day he gets  a news that his photography mentor- his grandfather has expired and he should be there at his house to pay his respects.He goes there and comes to know from his advocate that his grandfather was working on something that made him take huge loans against his assets. Also he left a letter for Neil.

The letter...

Oba-ma-geddon – Episode Four: Conclusion

*This is a multi part treatize on the US elections from the perspective of an Indian.This in no way is a professional view on the subject and I am not an expert or a cognizant individual on international politics,relations and intelligence.It is advised that this treatize is from the view of an amateur and should be read with the same perspective. Anything that offends you is unjust , untrue and baseless because of the reasons mentioned above and I am going to take this as an utter insult to my individuality as a citizen of a free nation and act accordingly *

People living under a rock,blind at birth,wanna-be Homer Simpsons and really really dumb people can read my previous posts on this topic here,here and here before trying to pass a judgement on my political,sexual and social inclinations.Coming right back to the topic,I think it is sufficiently safe to draw a conclusion here that apparently theres no reason whatsoever that we as Indians should be greatly affected if Obama wins or loses to that 72 year old limpdick.Additionally the the outlook towards Indians will also not change greatly-it will just hop on to another equally irritating cliché which will in the end become the subject of another blog just like this one. Racism is a touchy subject and I do not want to get into a lot of details but even being on the safe side it is enough to say that teh racial sarcasm isn’t quite the true picture here.A good amount of Indians are educated and earn for themselves honestly and most definitely not raise eight kids.Thanks to Matt Groening to pull up such a character for his american viewers which is nothing but a sureshot ticket to getting his ass boned.Apu-from the perspective of an Indian (who live in India) is nothing short of a recially colored version of Borat.I know I wont sound impartial when I write the next line but it is something that I really cannot resist from putting it up-blame my bongo roots, blame my upbringing-I don’t care.The real picture I get in my mind when I hear the name ‘Apu’ is the  one without color below.  

I am Apu,I dont have eight kids and I am not dishonest.In fact I am such a timeless character that I can kick Matt Groenings Nuts every fucking day of the years to come !

My treatize so far has discussed matters a layer above the common man’s understanding.An individual from a country like india, doesn’t really care what he  should make out of international politics and strategies.So

The definition of an Indian to the West

Apu: The definition of an Indian to the West

this episode will focus on what matters to us Indians more-the jobs.Hollywood and the west as such had its own cliche of portraying indians time to time.A few years back an Indian meant some bearded guy with a turban.The bearded guy with a turban soon evolved into a colored skin guy runnign resturants and stores and now the Indian has overevolved into some night owl sitting in bangalore with an earpiece and a phone giving you instructions on how to fix your cheap broken chinese lamp.Sad but true,In my considerable inetraction with the americans,the better educated ones think to the contrary that we are hghly skilled techies/doctors,while the average Joe thinks that India is a hole for some english speaking half salaried Call center jocks who work at night and try to live the american life with plastic US accents. Over the last ten years we have seen huge investments in the name of cost cutting and in essence it was justified and decisive.But the sad aspect was a lot of high paid US counterparts were handed down a pink slip just because they were paid more.

Hello Jayram ? This is George here.... Can you tell me how to hold my presidential phone ?... What ??? you cant hear me.... (stupid mofo indians !!! Burn it !)....

Continuing my previous post on the US presidential elections,in this chapter I intend to have a look at the intelligence aspects of the US elections.

Moving back again through the pages of history and totally ignoring the seven packs of Daniel Craig as James Bond in Quantum of Solace, the real life intelligence was dominated by the CIA and the KGB back then, each trying to eat each other out after the Germans made an Apocalyptic exit from the international scene of intelligence and counter intelligence. But at that time,CIA was too much focussed on KGB. And KGB was too much focussed on planting moles in CIA who were counter picked regularly by CIA counter moles.And all this runnign around in close circles helped grow lean mean and futuristic intelligence agencies across the globe who in turn became big players in world politics.By the time the cold wars were over and KGB was disbanded,we had the Chinese MSS,Israeli Mossad,Indian RAW and the re-discovered MI5 controlling information that people couldn’t do without.
