Review of the movie "Perfect storm" by a friend.

My friend posts his reviews in an Orkut community.
Quote:
“The Perfect Storm” is perfect only for those who are hardhearted. Though the film showcases the plight of seafarers, I still can’t understand how a person having a fully functional brain can watch them catching and dragging sharks with fishing hooks – “Fishes, life is as precious for them as it’s for you...huh...!!!” While seeing that dreadful sequence, I was praying these crooks should also meet with the same quandary and in the form of the fiercest hurricane in the recorded history, Mother Nature just does that. As they say “he who lives by the sword, shall die by the sword”. Apart from this horrific slip, director Wolfgang Peterson’s treatment to the subject is passable. CGI has been used to whip up the titular storm and done with perfection. Visual effects team deserves a pat on their back. Wrath of Mother Nature has been depicted in all its glory with all the heroics of air and naval crew, spotlighting the inevitable outcome. The movie is recommended only for its visual effects and thumbs down for its violence to aquatic creatures.
It sure made me laugh when i read it. What else is fishermen supposed to do? I'm a non-veg

Bill Gates.

Laloo prasad jumped with joy on receiving this reply. He arranged a press conference :
"Bhaiyon aur Behno, aap ko jaan kar khushi hogee ki hum ko Amereeca mein naukri mil gayee hai."
Everyone was delighted. Laloo prasad continued...... "Ab hum aap sab ko apnaa appointment Letter padkar sunaongaa ? par letter angreeze main hai - isliyen saath-saath Hindi main translate bhee karoonga.



Dear Mr Laloo Prasad, ----- Pyare Laloo prasad bhaiyya ,

Thanks ----- aapkaa bahut bahut dhanyavad.
Bill Gates. ---- Tohar Bilva.
