Rave Reviews

Hey folks...

Some reviews for u this time... movies, radio stations, Odyssey - the bookstore and Zaha the pub...

Bhoothnath starts Big B, a very cute Aman Siddiqui, bubbly Juhi and here-now-gone-now luvable SRK. It's a chaotic state of affairs whr d part b4 the interval is timepass, you may even manage a few laughs thnx to d brilliant cast. But the characters n plot is flop. It's abt Big B who is attached to this bungalow in Goa and he dies there and stays on as a Bhoot ("Angel" as apna Bankoo = Aman calls him). The trio move in and AB tried to thro thm out. Rajpal Yadav is wasted in d movie, and so is Satish Shah, the plump and lisping, kids-tiffin-eatin-princi. Aman manages to jagao pyar widin d atma's atma n they hav fun aftr they strike a frenship whn thnx to bhootji Aman baby has a gr8 fall down the stairs n recuperates miraculously. Aftr d interval it's apna Bhagban whr Amitji gives a few seekh (forgive ppl and help thm, blah blah) and thn Amit's son surfaces who Amit has nevr been able to forgive as he lost his wife and even his life in pursuit of his son... Confused? well, dats wat Bhoothnath is all abt. You can laugh a bit and even get ur eys moist if ur d senti types. But d kid sittin next to me had a brilliant time laughin his head off n screamin than to Amitji's antics... I likd d caramel popcorn as usual, but the iced tea was too sugary and grainy... now u kno whr my interest lay ;-) hehe... if u'v got nuthin to do n no brains or slp to lose, go for BN, but make sure u dnt buy too expensiv tix. My rating 4/10 - coz d kid enjoyd it, my Ammi cried and Abba guffawed once or twice...

Radio One whatte fun - it's wonderful... a gr8 escape n a huge sigh of relief from Mirchi dat has shitty songs n shittier RJs... u'v got smart ones on Radio 1 n they luv to pull Big B's family ka massive legs... jab dekho they r at it, n it's quite witty I mus say. The songs r fresh n enjoyable n I absolutely adore Ghanta Singh who keeps askin Qs n irrit8g call ctr n other salesmen... My cel is now tuned to 94.1 (I hope I got it right, my memory's gone for a toss since I startd MA)... Bye Bye Mirchi... radio one is here to stay! hey btw, u heard Radio City? dats newly launchd too, but I dno how well it'l cope with Radio One. My rating 8/10 (it can get real irritatg sumtimes, all their Bacchan-bashing and sarcastic, insultin comments abt whoevr's making headlines, and Ghanta Singh's gettin repetitive and old)... However, I stand by my rating. It's really gud... no purana maal, jus fun...

Odyssey and Zaha. The first is a bookstore on FC Rd, rating 6/10 and Zaha is a pub near Chandni Chowk, rating 2/10 if you'r drunk n despr8 to go dance anywhr wid any1. The DJ sux (he was playin kaliyo ka chaman at 10 on a Sunday night!) and the crowd is yuck. Ppl who'v never been to a disc may like it, but then u know wat dat means... Absolut thumbs down. Probably d saving grace was d fact dat we had free entry (couple entry free b4 10pm) odrwise I'd b beatin d shit otta d person who sugstd Zaha to me in d first place.... Oops, forgot Odyssey in d heat. Good small lil bookstore dat has music n gifts n d usual stuff... I wonder y d Psychology section in any bookshop jus has dreams' interpretation and stress mngt books... get a life! Psych goes way beyond dat buds! D collection is gud, but d rates dont help u return to d store. It's fairly peaceful n no crowd on weekdays, d staff r frenly n helpful, so u can spend a free afternoon readin thr...

Got sum1 waitin for me.. so gota wind up... brb!
Enjoy the heat!

Luv,
Anuja
