Wake me up...

Hi guys and gals..m back to blogging after a long gap..dunno why, but i really feel like writing something now. Its not that i have loads or free time or anything..class-tests seem to be knocking on the doors perpetually these days and d termite ridden door will break down in 1 months time to usher in the two projects m least interested to bust my bums dis stupid design assignments where u have got to make gears move round n short, m under hell load of pressure...but gotta write something, can't ignore the urge..or after Wake Up Sid experience, i shouldn't ignore the urge to test drive my Writing skills again..

1.Wake Up Sid:

Facebook walls are covered with graphiti blaring that "Wake UP Sid"is too bollywoodish..ya. i agree completely with that..
Its the same bollywood that gave us Dil Chahta Hain..the same bollywood that gave us Swades..the same bollywood that gave us Tare Zameen Par..the same bollywood that gave us Lage Raho Munnabhai..
The best thing about the movie is that it is minty fresh and it makes us look into ourselves..and discover our passions..and i liked the story very much..simple, uncomplicated (man..while watching Kaminey i got frustrated with my IQ levels) and yet it hooks up your attention to the end..its not the story, but the style of telling the story that enchanted me..
It certainly isn't a Lakshya remake..may be they are based on the same plot but they are out and out Lakshya the Kargil wars overshadows the main the time the movie draws to towards climax we are too busy worrying on how Hritick would win his mission..we forget about his boy-turns-man act..but that's where Wake up Sid is different..It focuses on Sid's trip to learn the meaning of responsibility..the wonderful chemistry between Ranbeer and Konkona, that reaches its climax in the beautiful (the term is relative) Mumbai rains..and shows how your passion is your greatest strength..
And so i think...Every one of us has passions..may be writing, singing,gaming even..but how much time do we devote to our passions? As for me, i am into writing stuff..and some people like what I write, but how much time do i spare to this hobby of mine? m too lethargic to be a writer..many people are there who doesn't even know their passions..or spare them a single thought.
They haven't woken up yet..
You see that's what waking up is all look inside you(something tells me that the word introspection should work here) your passions, your abilities..and devote a small amount of time to is lot more enjoyable when you turn your passion into i rely on the audacity to advice you..rather request your passion,everyone..and let them flourish..they won't let you down..Our emotions, our passions, our ambitions..that's what makes us different from robots, ain't it? So instead of programming your your instincts sometimes...
OK..enough 'gyan', i know u guys cant suppress a yawn any more, so i better end it here..n yeah,watch the movie, everyone..its great.

I saw the movie hand in hand with the lady i love..her head resting on my shoulders..and the ending sequence filled us with a kind of warmth, that only lovers can was a great movie experience for me..and hence, this post.or may be m just taking some time out of my schedule..n devoting it to my passion..u can do the same, m feeling a great boost of satisfaction at the moment..i don't want any of u to miss the feeling..

P.S: this was written in October, when the movie i saw the movie again, and suddenly felt like posting this. Guess m till sleeping,whatever happened to d alarm clock.

I just watched X-Men Origins: Wolverine, having downloaded it from the net. It was a working incomplete one, but i couldn't resist viewing it. I am Wolverine freak since i was 14 perhaps, and i love Hugh Jackman(no, i am not a gay.)The movie releases on 1st May, And my sems start the next had i not got hold of this leaked copy i would have to wait until 19th May. The movie was OK, but The Dark Knight has raised the standard of superhero movies to such a level that i personally feel the director Gavin Hood should have worked a bit harder on the script...but that's not the point of writing this blog. I am no film critic. I even liked Om Shanti Om...but the thing is
i broke several laws while watching this unregistered copy of wolverine...which was a stolen copy most likely. I violated the section 14(d) of the Copyright Act (1994). I am a criminal now, am i not??
I became a criminal years ago, when dad brought me the CD player...a music CD
costed 150 bucks those days, and i could get 40 such albums for 10% of that money. You can do the math now...
Did i realise that i was i was contributing in crippling the
entertainment industry. Nope, i was busy basking in the glory of my profit. Every movie that released i could see it on the pirated CDs. People went on campaigning about Piracy...most enjoyable anti piracy campaigns surfaced in the FM channels. But with the advent of Internet the quality of the pirated products increased manifold...we could get DVD Quality picture straight from the net...we could see the offstream holly movies which did'nt ever got released in India. and we could get the uncut versions. Piracy seemed to be a gift. We turned a deaf ear to the campaigns and went continuing our attacks on the foundations of the industry that survives on our leisurely activities.
By this time, you must be wondering why am I writing all this shit. People know all these, and they don't give a damn...i know i won't b able to stop people from committing this crime just by writing a blog. i know this...because i myself haven't stopped.My
utorrent software is currently downloading a movie. I have an unlimited Internet connection and i will go on downloading movies , games,songs and want to know the reason??? I am just a student...i earn Rs. 500 monthly and that too after shouting myself hoarse twice a week. Its Hard to Earn money...and i can't buy a Blu-Ray disc of "The Dark Knight" with the money i earn... but i can download it almost free of cost. I can't watch "The Reader" in a movie hall. The censor board would have all the fun and deprive the entire country...(after all it's Kate Winselet, man.) I don't support piracy, in fact i hate piracy. But i can't stop indulging in it..
Its like smoking, you know that its harmful...but you can't give up the habit.
How to stop Piracy then?? it's wrecking
havoc. It should be stopped. I think the Entertainment industry should take some actions,they should protect the working halls should ban the cameras...they should stop us from committing the crime in any damn way possible. Don't count on our conscience...stop us guys. Its your industry that's at stake.
A decent pirated copy of "The Dark Knight" wasn't available in India... and that's why the movie was a bumper hit. I myself saw it 4 times. Had i got a decent DVD, i won't have bothered. "
Slumdog Millionaire" failed in India despite hitting it large in the Oscars, because of the leaked DVD.
we, the common people we won't stop downloading movies...we will go on supporting Piracy consciously or's ur duty to stop us, media guys. If u can''s not long before ur industry would collapse.
Piracy...may be its a gift for us, but what if the entertainment industry shuts down after incurring heavy losses...Aren't we cutting the branch on which we are sitting??
