WAIT & HOPE

“All human wisdom is contained in these words: WAIT & HOPE!!”

I read this beautiful quote a few days back and this set me thinking !!

What do I really hope and wait for?? For starters there are zillion things but if it were to ever boil down to one thing besides the happiness of my immediate family is to see that one person pay for their deeds.

Like a typical scorpion I can forgive but can’t forget, but with this person there is just so much negativity filled inside that even the former can’t happen.  With a character flaw so strong that even Ekta Kapoor’s vamp can be put to shame. So while I wait for Karma to work its magic and I just hope things the payback happens sooner than later while the angst is still there and the magnanimity of others doesn’t take over !!

I can’t help but wonder a what if scenario !!

What if the drama was nipped in the bud?

What if the lies were called out?

What if fleecing the terminally ill didn’t happen?

What if the kleptomania was there for the world to see?

What if people didn’t easily let get themselves thrown out?

What if the legacy wasn’t for them for usurp?

What if the forged signatures were available for the world to see?

What if your own makes you pay for your deeds?

What if ……..

Shakespeare’s Mark Antony’s famous words, ‘The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones,’ aptly captures their continuing deeds !!

In the end I just hope that the good doesn’t get buried inside and wait to see that each and every lie extracts its price!!

Dobaara : See your Evil

So it’s been more than a month since Bahubali 2 released and until now there hadn’t been anything worthwhile that made me venture inside a movie theatre. I had been inkling to watch a movie and lo-behold the marketing team of Dobaara made sure it generated enough interest to watch it .

It had everything going for it from the stellar cast of brother-sister duo of Saqib Saleem and Huma Qureshi, Adil Hussain and Lisa Ray in the main leads. With a promise to showcase Bollywood Horror away from the sleaze, gore and background music that is generally dished out in this genre. The premise of this is that there is a Possessed Mirror that blurs lines between real and imaginary world and that makes the owner do all sorts of evil things.

So far so good and we take our seats in a near empty hall and letting that deter our spirits we gear for a chilling movie night. But 15-20 minutes into the movie I realised there is something amiss, half way thru the film there isn’t a single scary moment. The actors hamming it up and trying too hard to look and act the part with a put on Brit accent, mouthing some psychology mumbo-jumbo.

The second part comes and goes barring one scary moment (only if I u insist for this is supposed to be a different Horror Film) there is hardly anything. Too many time shifts and slow pace just doesn’t work for me. For me it was an utter waste of time, money. I would have rather stayed back home and finished the Season 5 of House of Cards. The Underwood’s machinations and definitely more scary than this movie.

Forget ‘Dobara’ and not even worth watching once. Like I say don’t go by opinion, go if u have to but don’t blame me for you are forewarned.
