Teefa in Trouble | Movie Review

Teefa in trouble has been the biggest opener in Pakistani cinema so far, as quoted in Wikipedia. Although my likings for movie doesn’t depend on the box-office collection, I just believe in the entertainment value of the film. Being one of the fans of “Ali Zafar”, I thought let's give it a shot and I watched it on Netflix.

Well, to be honest, I was going to quit after watching for some time but then the story started getting interesting and the cinematic value improved as the movie progressed. I was wrong thinking that a low budget movie might not be that good in terms of the cinematic effect. But this movie is an excellent example for movie buffs like me. I watched every single scene with full interest. Sometimes, I had to repeat the scene to appreciate the cinematographer. Some hard-to-believe situations carried out very well.

Ali Zafar has done a brilliant job with narration. Though I think the movie is a bit long but the catchy dialogues, good writing and creative camera angles kept me glued to the screen.

There are some really larger-than-life shots, especially in Poland. They took care of details, for example, In an action sequence, when a car was ran over in one scene, some of its parts were shown in the next scene to maintain the continuity. Even fight scenes were good to watch just because of the continuity followed very well. In the climax, when Ali is done with a long fighting scene, there were about 7-8 villains still to fight with, I thought, oh man again there is going to be a long fight scene, it's too much now. But then, to my surprise, they showed in a time lapse of photographs when the train goes in a tunnel, that was brilliant to avoid the repetition.

I liked when Ali and Maya were sitting on the roof and spend the night there, she says "Yahan raat ko aksar thand badh jati hai" (It's quite cold here sometimes). As a gentleman, Ali is supposed to give his jacket to her. I was thinking, what a cliche man!. But to my surprise, thanks to the writers, Ali gave her the jacket. He made her feel special, without being romantic, because he is not suppose to be her hero yet. The scene ended with a witty comment about cold. (No spoiler attack :). Go watch the movie).

"Chan Ve" song is okay, good for humming with a romantic feel. "Item Number" song is good for its lyrics, very catchy, peppy and new. "Sajna door" song is amazing. It starts with English lyrics when Maya sings then Ali takes over with a mix of Punjabi and Hindi lyrics. I liked it for its lyrics and overall feel. Other songs are average neither bad nor very good.

Overall, I liked the movie very much and would recommend for Hindi movie lovers and filmmakers.

Saab, Delhi se aye ho kya?

Living in the city other than your native, is totally amazing experience. One should try once in a lifetime to live in different city, out of the comfort zone. For me Living in Mumbai is not that tough, it depends on what decisions you take, whether it is choosing a place to stay, or choosing a mode of transport from office to home. I generally prefer Auto rather than bus, it saves time and energy. If Auto is not available, I prefer taxi rather than waiting for Auto. So, it all depends on how you manage little things in life. But yes, it is tough to live away from your family. I miss the tasty home made food.

So, on that other day, I was going towards metro station. I asked the banana seller how much for a dozen. It was some 30 bucks for a dozen. I chose to have 4 bananas for Rs. 10, and started eating there. While I was eating, I asked him don’t you keep Masaala? (a mixture of salt and spices). First he looked at me totally surprised like I asked his kidney, then he asked “Saab, Delhi se aaye ho kya?”. Me without being offended of being a Delhiite asked: “Haan, kyu masaala kya sirf delhi wale hi khaate hein?
Aur kya saab, yahan agar Masaala laga ke bechunga, to mujhe maarenge aur

Hmm, then I concluded, it is like selling Milk with mixing water in it. But anyways, I completed my last banana, and went off.

Mumbai or Bombay?

So, finally I'm in Bombay. I still call it Bombay, it reminds me the old time when I was so attracted to this city. Whenever I heard about this city, Indian film industry, tall buildings, city of richest people, it's night life, beaches, created the zest for coming to Bombay, my eagerness and my attraction towards this city was growing since childhood. I used to see it in movies, serials and other media. And finally in 2016 I'm here. Liking to so much, easy life, everything is up to date. I've met good people so far, they are really helpful, soft spoken, and they respect your decisions. I've met number of people while searching for a good accommodation, So many stories for each of the broker :) they are funny enough to mention in blog posts. So, I've decided to share the experience I had with them, not in this post but very often.

Usne mujhe bye kyu bola? ;-)

This was the time when we (YMCA classmates) used to have fun all the time. Once a week, we used to visit a place somewhere around Delhi. And the best part of this was that it was always impromptu, it was never pre-planned. We never planned it, these decisions were always on the spot decision "chal aaj wahan ghoomne chalte hein".

So, once we decided to visit Kalkaji Temple. Now I'm gonna tell you the incident which always brings a smile on my face. I was sitting behind Ravi and Sandeep. The bus was not crowded so I was alone on two seats. On the left row Anuja and Chetna were sitting, they both were chatting the usual girl stuff while I was getting bored of sitting alone. I thought of sitting on the seat next to where the girls were sitting. Suddenly an old man with two little girls came and sat on that seat. One of them was so cute. They started playing ABCD with each other. Girl A (the prettier one) said A for apple B for boy C for cat D for dog and E for...?? She suddenly forgot what E was for and she looked at me as I was looking at her. I enact in a way that E for Elephant without telling her, just by lifting my arm as nose, she laughed first then understood and shouted ELEPHANT. Everybody looked at her, Ravi, Sandeep, Anuja and Chetna. But they didn't know that I was actually talking to that little girl without speaking. Then Girl B started 1.. 2.. 3... again Girl A was looking at me, I was pointing my fingers in a counting way, she was actually singing the numerals, though she was smart enough to remember the counting but still she was continuously looking at my finger as my fingers were moving in sync with her voice. She laughed and smiled many times at the way I was talking to her, seeing this  her guardian stared back at me, so I turned my face towards the window. I was actually enjoying her smile. If she were teenage girl somebody would have accused me for flirting her. Then their stop came and they stood up to get off the bus. As they began to walk forward, Girl A turned back and said "Bye" to me and waved her hand. Now my friends who didn't know what was going on looked surprised.

"Wo ladki tujhe bye bol rahi thi?" Ravi asked with surprise.
"Tu janta hai usko?" This time Sandeep threw the question.
Chetna asked: "Fir wo tujhe bye kyu bolke gayi?"

I couldn't tell them the whole story so I just gave one answer. "Ye andar ki baat hai :)"

This incident happened back in 2008, but the funny thing is my friends still don't know ki usne mujhe bye kyu bola ;-)

Resolution 2012

My Resolution for the coming year is “to blog more”

Yes, I want to start continue blogging, cuz I’ve very few posts as compare to my 3 years of blogging career. I’ve lot’s of topic in my mind. So, coming year would be full of posts here.

Although I never take resolutions, as I don’t drink, never smoke, nor I’ve any other bad habit, so there’s nothing I need to avoid. I’m really happy with my life J , then why taking resolution this year?

So the thing is, I want to explore more, I want to live more, I want to grab more, and I feel blogging can help me to achieve these things by discussing life lessons with bloggers.
I’m feeling some happiness in my heart for the coming year, there’s few reasons behind it. One is this is a Leap year, and by now every leap year has been good for me as I can count some milestones of my life in the past leap years. When I look back those were great years of my life, I felt more energetic, more confident, and more satisfied. But I’m also looking for the thing that how can I make my every year as good as leap year.

Second is I’m planning some improvement plans in myself, like Quick decision, taking responsibilities of little things in my life. And more over I want to reduce the time between thinking and doing. As of now I think too much and do nothing, as a great man said: “Thinking without doing is a Daydream, and doing without thinking is a Nightmare”
So, coming year would definitely be my best year cuz I’m focusing on doing more than just thinking.

I also feel there’s no such date for taking resolutions, we can decide anytime, like if we want to try new things then we should go and do it, if anything we know is harmful or bugging us we should avoid it immediately, that’s it. We have to be little strict to our self. As we say in hindi: “Jab jaago tabhi saveraa”

Btw, I’d request you all to drop your comment for your resolutions of this year, I’d be glad to hear you. Even if you didn’t take any resolution, you can at least write what you feel after reading this. I’m sure you must be thinking something worth sharing, you are most welcome!

Jo dikhta hai woh bikta hai

Indian Film Industry is quite disappointing me for last few months, I mean kuch movies ko chod kar agar baat karein to kya bakwaas movies ban rahi hein. Just baseless movies.
Although direction is good, dialogues are good even music direction could be quite ok. But they are just like walls without base and roof. I consider the story as base and climax as roof, Most of the movies are lack of these basic elements.
And yet for every third movie they think to getting Oscar, I mean what's going on to our Story writers? And why Yash Chopra didn't bring hope after veer zaara?
Are we running out of talented writers? or they are not brought up? I can count number of bullshit movies, for example:

Yamla Pagla Deewana.
Comedy good, dialogues good, music excellent, star cast good. But story bullshit, climax quite disappointing. Sach mein yaar isse acha to comedy circus dekh lo.

Same thing for No Problem movie. Another example is Tees Maar khan. Not to speak of "Golmaal 3" This movie was only made to proove that there is it's first part and still better than all sequals.
Hiss dekh ke to vomit karne ka man karta hai, what a **** movie was that? Have they gone mad or what?
Patiala House ko hi dekh lo, I mean they really think kisi bhi 4-5 movies ki story ko ek sath mila do acha sa music de do film hit. Aur kuch movies to hit bhi ho jati hein,

Are our audience dumb? or they just watch whatever is going on the screen.
Tanu weds Manu, Movie chahe kaisi bhi ho... Packing aisi karte hein ki gift dene wala aur lene wala dono proud feel karte hein. Jab unwrap karo to there's nothing more than crap.

I mean ek taraf "Welcome" and "Hey baby" jaise excellent example and dusri taraf "Housefull" and "Khatta-meetha". Action Replay ke bare me to bolne ki zarurat hi nahi hai. Ye to aisi movie hai, I can surely say while doing the movie Akshay and aishwarya would have quite sure that movie will not run well, I mean they are not fool, no body is fool, then why they make such horrible movies? cast & crew work for money only? Director do his job and went away? I'm not getting the freaking idea of making useless movies.

Ravan based on Ramayana, Rajneeti based on Mahabharata. I mean really yaar inko bolo ki kahin ilaaj karwayein seriously.

Dabang bhi bakwaas. Ye movies sirf dialogues and music ki wajah se chal jati hein, on the other hand

"Wanted" was excellent movie in terms of Story, Climax (I loved it), music and of course dialogues.

3 idiots is quite good, based on strong story and stylish climax.

Band baja baarat & Do dooni char had different track of stories.

Love aaj kal was EXCELLENT movie.

But on the other hand there's "I hate love story" and "Break ke baad" made-to-burn movies.

Anyways my point is: I can't believe while making such kind of horrible movies they don't assume of their result, of course they'd know cuz they are the movie makers here for years and yet they make baseless movies, why?

Or they are just following the Indian attitude of selling...
Kabhi Naye Packet mein bechein tum ko cheez purani.... Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani.... Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani.

Dreams can change your life

Why we dream? Why our science still not perfectly sure about dreaming? But still it’s the important part of our life. No I'm not gonna answer these questions here, I'm not that intelligent :), but I'd like to share my thinking about dreams, I dream a lot quite a lot, even sometimes it seems like day dreaming, but in those dreams I always make plan for everything, I call it dreaming for something and you get that or try to get that. This is just to make the difference about night dreams and Life’s goal which is also called dream. I’m talking about dreaming the Dream. Dream for the dream you want in your life.

Before Sleep »

It happens to me a lot I dream something really exciting just before the sleep. Those few minutes of my night are amazing; it gives me idea for the thing I'm stick to. Like I got idea of new design layout of my current project or sometimes I got interesting lines of literature in my mind to put that in Ghazal or poem. I'm not poet but somewhere in the corner of my heart I love to compile poems. Sometime I got almost brilliant idea to start a new thing. But I never know why I get creative ideas only before getting sleep when my eyes and body don't even bother to pick up the pen and paper. Sometimes I think of preserve the idea in mind and postpone noting it down next day, but then there's a risk of forgetting it or being un-priorities. So I've started typing it in my phone. But even then the Mood and the idea of creating something new, doing something interesting has been killed by the time. But still sometime I happened to wake up from bed and do it at the moment, for example I'm writing this blog entry just now before sleeping :)

Before die »

Do you think after die where would you go? Or do you believe in re-birth? I believe in it. When you are going to die and just before few seconds of your death; whatever you think that decides your new birth where will you born or what you are gonna be. I believe that just before the last sleep of life whatever we dream, whatever we think, it comes true in next birth because at that time our subconscious mind active at its best. On the other hand every time you get into sleep the last thing you had in mind decides your dreams and decides your decisions of that situation and answers your questions you are stick to.

For example when I met a girl on a date and rejoice her with my company, sometimes I feel that there's a strange thought coming into my mind but couldn't come, but at the same night just before sleep It happens to recall the same mood but this time same thought comes in my mind straight. And whatever you did in the day, all the things comes like flash back just before the sleep, you don't have to do it deliberately, it comes naturally, I don't know about others but this happens to me. So my point here is think for the better of you, what you want to be in next day, think for the best mood you had in past and always dream your Dream, that will surely gonna make it come true and happens to answer all your queries. Same thing applies to the re-birth. Your thoughts are going to build yourself, your future and your personality.

As India's former president well said: “Dream is not what you see in sleep, dream is the thing which doesn't let you sleep.” - A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.

And Dream is the thing which decides your next birth, which decides your path and track of life. So always dream your Dream, keep it in mind in your healthy mind, it'll definitely gonna come true.

होके मजबूर मुझे उसने भुलाया होगा

होके मजबूर मुझे उसने भुलाया होगा
ज़हर चुपके से दावा जानके खाया होगा

दिल ने ऐसे भी कुछ अफ़साने सुनाए होंगे
अश्क़ आँखों ने पिए और ना बहाए होंगे
बंद कमरे में जो खत मेरे जलाए होंगे
एक एक हर्फ जबिन पर उभर आया होगा
होके मजबूर मुझे उसने भुलाया होगा

उसने घबराके नज़र लाख बचाई होगी
दिल की लुटती हुई दुनिया नज़र आई होगी
मेज़ से जब मेरी तस्वीर हटायी होगी
हर तरफ मुझको तडप्ता हुआ पाया होगा
होके मजबूर मुझे उसने भुलाया होगा

छेड की बात पे अरमान मचल आए होंगे
गम दिखावे की हँसी में उबल आए होंगे
नाम पर मेरे जब आँसू निकल आए होंगे
सर ना काँधे से सहेली के उठाया होगा
होके मजबूर मुझे उसने भुलाया होगा

ज़ुलफ ज़िद करके किसी ने जो बनाई होगी
और भी गम की घटा मुखड़े पे छायी होगी
बिजली नज़रों ने कई दिन ना गिराई होगी
रंग चेहरे पे कई रोज़ ना आया होगा
होके मजबूर मुझे उसने भुलाया होगा
ज़हर चुपके से दावा जानके खाया होगा

My first shayari

This is how a little thought grow up and finally develops into a Ghazal. Today I was just thinking of this few lines in my mind, then I tell this to some of my close friends, and here you are:
बसता है कभी, फूल में खुशबू बनकर

याद जगती है कभी, रात में जुगनू बनकर

काँटों से भरी ज़िंदगी में ग़म की क्या परवाह करें
जिगर का खून है, बहता है जो आँसू बनकर

वो इक लम्हा जो तेरे साथ बिताया था कभी
दिल मे बजता है, तेरी याद का घुँघरू बनकर

तू ही ना जब मिली तो दुनिया का क्या करें
निकल जाएँगे कहीं राह में साधु बनकर

कैसे जीता है कोई दर्द-ए-मोहब्बत के बिना
हम भी देखेंगे कभी ख्वाब में "तू" बनकर

दर्द को उसके, कैसे मैं भुला दूं "सागर"
दिल में बहता है वही दर्द जब लहू बनकर

Don't let your memories be better than your Dreams

I love my friends.

I really love them all. In fact from the beginning of my life they have an incredible impact on my mind. I cannot find out which friend I like most or which is like just another. But here situation is different. Let me clear it. Actually when I left my school after 5th class, I really missed my friends, specially girls. (I left means, I upgraded to the next school, that doesn't mean I left studying :) But I hardly have those childhood friends now. and this continuous as well as when I also left the next school, then after it on and on. But here situation is different as I told before. These are the friends I cannot forget at all. Though they can be too busy in their life or may be I won't be able to took out the time for the older friends. But even then I 'm expecting much from my true friends, like if I go long then they would surely try to be in contact, because If they are my friends so obviously they will respect me when I'll call & invite them to come on the central park.

As far as my older friends are concerned like Geeta, Nisha, Irshaad & Rahul they are still my good friends but they call very few, occasionally. But I still respect them for the time they spend with me. I can call it the golden period on my life.

And as well as here I would Like to thanx all of my friends: Anuja, Sandeep, Ravi, Poonam, Shristy, Piyush, Pushpender etc. (acha acha Deepika david bhi.. :-) I learnt a lot from them. They are just superb. some good moments and some bad moments I got to spend with them. For this I really thankful of my God, Parents, and they all who make me to come in YMCA.

This Idea was from the beginning to make any video of all my friends and place it on my blog. but I didn't expected to myself that it would be that great (I always appreciate my work). Though my friends (Best Friends) will always remain in my memories, but still if I couldn't make it happen to meet them or join them or anything in the future. Please forgive me. In this video I tried my best to make it funny or energetic, so that nobody, including me, will feel lonely or weep or try to convince himself sympathetically. that is why I put my best and energetic songs.
I hope you will like it. and still if you find any mistake in it then don't argue with me. :-)

If you like it or didn't like it. Please leave a comment below. I'll bring some newest stuff on my blog.

Something I liked

दोस्त बन कर भी नहीं साथ निभाने वाला
वही अंदाज़ है ज़ालिम का ज़माने वाला

क्या कहें कितने मरासिम थे हमारे इस से
वो जो एक शख्स है मुह फेर के जाने वाला

मुंतज़िर किस का हूँ टूटी हुई देहलीज़ पे मैं
कौन आएगा यहाँ कौन है आने वाला

मैं ने देखा है बहारों में चमन को जलते
है कोई ख्वाब की ताबीर बताने वाला?

तुम तकल्लुफ को भी इखलास समझते हो 'फ़राज़'
दोस्त होता नही हर हाथ मिलाने वाला
