CHAK DE OR SIMPSONS

Last weekend was one of the best in recent times.......

Watched chak de india on Friday(thanks to my frens who are srk fans)and Simpson's on Saturday.

Firstly, lets talk about chak de.
Brilliant movie ( the title song seems to have lifted the spirits of the Indian cricket team, which was on the verge of losing the first test ended up winning the test series)

The movie is different from the other Indian sport movies (notably LAGAAN and IQBAL) since it's not based on cricket....

It clearly portrays how cricket is given so much preference over other sports... It also shows how sportswomen are not encouraged in our country... Another important aspect of the movie that i liked was the way they showed how sportsmen are treated after winning and losing... I hope the movie enlightens at least some of the people and that they should refrain from behaving like hooligans.....
The movie resembles the Hollywood flick "mighty ducks" which is based on ice hockey...

secondly, Simpsons......
wwwwwwwwwoooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(can't think of any other way to describe it )

I didn't want to watch this movie at all... My friends dragged me along to the theatre ( paid 210 for the ticket :( ) In the end, i enjoyed it a lot more than i thought i would.... Two hours of non stop entertainment... A must watch for people who love comedy flicks....


It was very difficult to choose the better movie among the two and since i like comedy flicks a lot more than the serious movies, my vote goes to The Simpsons. Congratulations to the makers of Simpsons (the longest standing show in American history, 20 years and counting)....


Now lets get to some insane things I've done during this week....
i went to Mysore (u must be thinking what's insane in this) alone on my bike(does sound like a foolish thing to do right???). Met with an accident on the highway (had to happen despite my visions about such things i decided to take my bike).

Luckily, my bike and I survived (some people would wish the opposite had happened)... Just a hairline fracture to my ribs and bruises to my knee.. No broken bones (thankfully, otherwise I'd have been grounded forever).....

Anyways apart from this minor glitch the trip was awesome....Met my friends who are working in infy(the campus is one helluva place)... Unfortunately we were not allowed into the campus... went to planet x in Mysore where we bowled and went karting....

The journey back home was the tricky one... Visibility is very poor in the nights, quite a few cars keep darting past you at super high speeds and a lot of people keep running across the roads (dunno if they are playing a game of some kind, every now and then some idiot runs across the road). In spite of all these problems the journey back to Bangalore took less than three hours.... Nonetheless a memorable trip with all the thrills and spills..... Until next time, adios amigos (hope I've got this right).....
