Bollywood Dilemma

The movies.....

Expectations have this strange thing about them. The more you expect the less you receive and the less you expect, the greater is the chance that you may be surprised with a better outcome. It specially means much more when its your precious time coz time is Money.
*Foolish me!!*

What are the odds of watching 2 Aishwarya Rai movies in 3 days and terribly hating one while liking the other?!

Bride and Prejudice OR Balle balle Amristar to LA (now who ever came up with that??!!) Honestly I admit to being naive and thinking the similarity of the movie name to Jane Austin's 'Pride and Prejudice', was a coincidence.
No...may be not. May be I knew that the Bollywood version was inspired by that story. But each and everything? 4 sisters, Mom eager to get them married, Sensible Father, Rich suitor Bingley, his friend Darcy... And I can go on and on.
To make the long story short - Gurinder Chadha I expected something a liiiiiiitle bit original from you!!

Shabd - The trailers that I had seen when I went to see Black seemed a bit promising, and although it started out slow. With loads of visual effects...graphics all over the screen etc.. the end justified the means! IMHO..ofcourse. You can walk away from it thinking..yeah, what were the odds of that?!

Great Expectations indeed!
(yes...go on...say it! - Nupur, stop being a fool!! - You are taking Bollywood way too seriously.
But I like to see good films you know... I invest my precious time and energy into them..!!)

--- too much energy..!!! *a bulb lit!*

---------------------------------------------

For those wondering, "Urvashi" will come in future... but I think I'll keep that as a surprise. When I know what I'd like her to do...I'll let you know.

---------------------------------------------

Time for me to go home......
Tell me, what have you pretty people been upto this week??

@Bablu: Yes... surprises are good - as long as they are 'good' surprises!! ;)
And Thanks. *blush*

@Sanaja: What did you think of DMM?! - I thought it wasn't that bad. Just the fact that the actresses in the movie are a year or so younger than me... :( that thought depresses me!!
