Jab ik bedard ko hi apna humdard banaye baithe hai.....
A complete post will follow.
Among other things, you can run into Katrina Kaif, find a dad, get laid, indulge in adventure sports, fight a bit, make up and have a good time in general.
If, and again, that's a big IF, TA makes the planned trip to Thailand, we had similar plans (except for of course, the dad part and i will let you speculate about the getting laid part). Morever, it is hoped to be a break from everything else. And a chance, last (or maybe second last chance) to do something in our lives our way. Not that we did everything our way till now, but still as life goes on, there will be a lot of influencers on each and every decision of ours and not to mention limitations. For eg. - Silky (and you can whack me for this), when was the last time you saw a hindi movie? :P
Point being, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (at least, as we know it).
Well, that was the thinking as Thailand plans were being laid (eh, being laid? Hmmmm)
The way I see it, the planned Thailand trip is most likely to be cancelled. Our lives are not 'Bollywood' Hindi movies, so planning a trip will be next to impossible. All conceivable troubles will show up and try their level best to trip the plan. ( and i am not even thinking about the chances of running into Katrina Kaif there).
At this point of time, 4 of the 5 people who could have gone to Thailand are tentative about their plans, in varying degrees, for various valid reasons. (I feel left out!!!)
Anyway, life would'nt stop i guess, if this trip doesn't happen. We may never get this chance again, so lets hope it happens.
I don't see how, maybe i'll go alone and take cutouts of everyone's photos and pose everywhere like in the movie Up In The Air.
Some Mallu, who is in the Navy, kills another guy, when he sees him at his girlfriend's house, and assumes/concludes they been sleeping together. Fine, as the judge said, a prudent cannot accept that and he killed him in a minutes insanity. Crime, but can be defended, punishment scaled down. Then the couple has sex (or, as the girl claims, she was raped) with the corpse still in the house. Fine, some emotional reunion maybe. Not a crime, just seems weird, but just might indicate a relaxed state of mind, after doing / witnessing a murder.
Then they think about what to do with the body. And then, very cruelly, in a gruesome manner, with a cool mind, they take steps to chop it into pieces and dispose it in jungle. Guy goes back home, girl goes and registers a police complaint about the guy being missing. And they have gone unpunished!
Ok, the guy has been convicted for murder and destroying evidence, while the girl has been convicted of just destroying evidence. 10 years and 3 years respectively, and the girl has walked out free today. She did not deserve to.
But the point is, the main crime was not the killing. A 1000 people are killed daily - by insurgents, by criminals, by armies, by police and so on. The main crime, was the thought in their mind, that the law will never catch up with them. That their gruesome crime will never be caught. That they can get away with it. That has not been punished.
So, is the court telling us, in effect, you can kill people, play victim and get away with it?
