Love (Aaj Kal) on a limp....

U got to appreciate the the dedication. Back, ribs, thigh, wrist, fingers , toes, calves - all hurting. All credits cards failed to work, some issue with some registration to be done, half sleepy - having worked till late at night on the presentation - but none of it stopped me from catching the movie - Love Aaj Kal. (On second thoughts, i could come home & seen Flintoff bat as well, but Star Cricket was kind enough to show highlight just as i reached home)

Anyways, you believe in love, or as Saif says, have you figured out love? Well, apparently it happens once in a lifetime, you cant plan or set a logic to it, you cant "get out" of it. Love is love and Imtiaz Ali has given 2 examples for that in the movie.

Stupid actually, but neat direction, easy lingo, innovative (not exactly, reminded me of Ocean's 11/12/13) narrative made it a watchable affair. Saif is gud, Deepika is there, smiling and all, music is good. The fun part was Rishi Kapoor - In Kabhie Kabhie (1976), there is a scene where Rishi Kapoor is making fun of old style slow "hi hello for an year" love, now he is saying that was good, & current generation is more busy with "kuch bhi" rather than love!!

These guys, Saif & Deepika , very smoothly, decide to part ways to follow their careers. Fine till here. 2 adults deciding something.

Then the stupidity starts. They remain friends. & tell each other everything, whats happening, dating scene etc. & they hope to go ahead & live happily with someone else. Doesn't work out,in my experience/ observation. If you want to move on, you have to move on!!! Ctrl+Alt+Del. Done. I think at least 3 people reading this will agree!!!

Unless of course, if you don't want to move on. Then get into the mess of break-ups & still friends and what not.

I mean, if you have taken a call , stick to it!

Anyways, i am not an authority on love, and maybe its easy speaking on the basis of other people's experiences, but hey- that's what i do for a living!!!

Anyways, looking forward to Kaminey now.....

England are playing well and may win / draw this match...that will be nice....

Now I'll go and give some rest to my hurting body parts. Life was nice last 2 days (except for the Humpty Dumpty fall and the aches and pains) - relaxed, work done, study done.

It's gonna get hectic now - new study, exams, and people....looking forward to mindf*&^%d me soon :)
