Busy week

I can’t believe it’s Friday.

We’ve been having a really full week, full of work that is. But all is good since we’re planning to take a few days off from work and go to the beach. Not now but in a couple of weeks (2-3 weeks I think). Just thinking about it me relaxes me.

Anyway, I doubt I’ll make any “serious” posts on the blog this weekend since I’ll be concentrating on sleeping and eating.

Sometimes we all need a break

I could use a break right now. Even if it’s weekend I have some things that need to be done like urgent and my deadline is on Monday. It sucks cause I love spending my weekend doing fun things not working.

But not even my little Einstein can help me finish translating a 130 pages manual till Monday. I’ve done 50 pages but it’s already Sunday. Oh well I can do my best and finish as much as I can and deal with everyone and everything on Monday.

Hulchul

I know I should be talking about Coraline or Madea goes to jail, since I’ve seen these two movies over the weekend, but I’ve seen Hulchul yesterday (with my father).

Angar Chand lives a wealthy lifestyle in a small town in India along with his wife, Parvati, and four sons, Balram, Kishan, Shakti and Jai. Since Balram is of marriageable age, he arranges his marriage with the daughter of Laxmi Devi, who decides to oppose this marriage. During the wedding ceremony, Laxmi Devi and her sons, Surajbhan, and Pratap forcibly remove their sister and accidentally kill Parvati. They subsequently get their sister married to Kashinath. An enraged Angar hacks Laxmi’s husband to death, is arrested and sentenced to 14 years in prison. When he returns he makes it clear that women will not be permitted in his house and forbids his sons to ever marry.

Well that’s just the beginning of the movie. I know it sounds more like a drama but the rest of the movie is 100% comedy. The main actors seem to be Akshaye Khanna and Kareena Kapoor, but there weren’t that many scenes with Kareena. And I’m glad for that, since I’m not such a fan of her.

But even so the story evolves more around Jai (Akshaye Khanna) trying to convince his brothers to get married, so her can marry Anjali (Kareena Kapoor). And if that weren’t enough, Jai and Anjali are from two different families that hate each other to death. So be prepared for a lot fo twists and turns of the story, and especially a lot of funny scenes. Oh, there are and a few pretty faces in the movie, for example: Veer (Sunil Shetty). 

All I can say this was a lovely movie and, like all the Bollywood movies I’ve seen so far, this one also lasts 3 hours. It seems this is the norm in Bollywood.
