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.

Wonder Girls announcement

Heh, I did said yesterday that the Wonder Girls have opened their official website. And it seems that they’ve also made an announcement about it.

It’s my first time hearing them talk in English, and they sound weird trying to speak with the right accent and pronounce every word correctly. But their English is pretty good. Enjoy!

Wonder Girls Official Website

I’m glad that the Wonder Girls have an official website, at last. And I’m even more glad that they have have become more active and appearing more in the news.

Usually, I would find news about them on different websites and blogs like K Bites, All Kpop, POPSEOUL, Wonder Girls Internationaland Wonder Girls Wonderland . Now I can go directly to the source. But even so, I still like visiting these websites cause they are the best way to find fun stuff about the groups and celebrities that I like.

It’s weird how news becomes more interesting/fun/appealing reading them from the view of other people.

Baazigar

As you know I’m a big fan of Bollywood movies, but not just any Bollywood movies but old Bollywood movies. I don’t know why, but I really like them.

I haven’t seen a Bollywood movie in a month or so (or even more) and this weekend I managed to see one. My choice was “Baazigar“.

It’s an 1993 movie with Shahrukh Khan, Kajol and Shilpa Shetty. It was just amazing to see how Shilpa and Kajol looked when they were young, with the big hair and very colored clothes. But what’s more amazing to see how drop dead gorgeous they still are.

Anyway, the movie was really awesome. It was different from the usual norm (of that time) and it was good to see Shahrukh Khan in a negative role. I know it lasted 3 long hours but it was worth it. Except the fighting scene at the end of the movie, there wasn’t any kind of exaggeration. I liked the plot, I liked the characters and I was surprised to hear an american song (which was really popular at that time) in the movie. It just sucks that I can’t remember it’s name and it seems I can’t find anything about it on the Internet.

All I can say I made a really good choice.

Let it rain

We just had a three days weekend. It was really relaxing and fun, but the weather was really weird. Either it was too hot to go out or it just rained. 

But I’m not complaining, since I got to play Sims 3(YOU HEARD ME!!!), we went to the movies and even slept in the afternoon. So I can say I’ve had a really great three days weekend.

Now about Sims 3, it’s been released very recently (I got an email about it last week). All I can say is: the game rocks! There are so many options in it that you probably won’t get bored playing it (I know I won’t).

The only problem I have is that I can’t install the game on my laptop cause I don’t have a CD-drive (the laptop is small  and it came with Windows pre-installed). So I can only play it on Johnny’s computer and only during weekends. I know that might sound sucky but I guess it’s good for my health, cause I already sit in front of a PC for 8 hours straight at work.

Anyway, as I was saying we didn’t got out much this weekend because of the weather, but we did saw 3 movies: Baazigar (Bollywood movie), Madea goes to jail and Coraline. All movies were awesome and worth every penny.

I love taking pictures of clouds and this one has got to be one of my favorites. That’s why I love the rain also.
