Marathi by mother-tongue, Kannadiga by initial domicile, and current home is Tamilnadu. What better mix could be possible ?

BTW, the name is Shivaji Rao Gaekwad.

The soup-du-jour is not Tom Yum, but a quick request to the smiley waiter and 10 minutes later we have two dark uneven sumatran bowls full of some very hot soup fragrant with lemongrass and galangal.
Gautam is right, this is a very very good Tom Yum indeed.
We order the main course. The predictable green curry + steamed rice combination. It is magnificent.
The place is named "ZENZIBU" and am glad you liked the food there.

Sam - Kung Fu Panda has released - it was to be our next movie togather - so when do we do it again ?

I am already smiling in anticipation of the typical Priyadarshan jokes and have made it a point to leave my brain at home. However one hour into the movie, our senses are hurting.

To call the plot thin would be an insult to thin plots. To call the story lame would be an insult to the lame. To call this movie bad would be an insult to every B-grade movie I have seen.

It's unbelievable. We have both lost interest, the humour is not good and most of the time we're not laughing because of the movie, we're laughing AT the movie. And at this guy behind us.
He sure can laugh, I must admit that. But he does the same thing every few seconds.

Allow me to elaborate.

Heroine: Par maine to phone kiya tha.
Raju-on-the-row-behind: hahahaha phone kiya that phone kiya tha, clap clap hahaha

Hero: KYA??!
Raju-on-the-row-behind-us: hahahaha clap clap clap kya!! hahaha Kya!! Clap clap

By the 50th time he does that, we're exasperated. Kya waste aadmi hai, gautam says.

2 hours into the movie, there is a semblance of a plot. The humour is poor, plain poor. Crass I can handle, poor I cannot.
3 hours into the movie we realise why the movie began late. It didn't.

Priyadarshan forgot to edit the movie!!

It is almost like someone gave the man some empty reels and said Yeh le, saare bhar dena, koi bhi khaali waapas nahi aana chahiye.

Paresh Rawal shone as usual, Om Puri was remarkable funny too, the rest of the cast had about as much of a chance to shine as pigs stuck in dung. It wasn't their fault. The movie was dung.

3 hours and 10 minutes later we're free to go. The entire audience walks out in stunned silence.

All except Raju-on-the-row-behind: hahaha The End hahaha clap clap The End!!

There are only 3 superstars I know of:

1 - Someone with the name Amitabh Bacchan (Bollywood hero)
2 - Someone with the name Shivaji Rao Gaekwad (The Boss)
3 - Someone with TheOne and sporting the name - Sameer Kapasi (TBhp Hero Hiralal...err, Narangi)

Somewhere in the middle of the game the Don suggests I write a YetiBlog®. About this evening? Yes yes he laughs. You must. Hmm.. OK.
I might be doing the unthinkable/unimaginable, but I had to say this, Sam.

You have set such high standards with your other Yeti blogs that this one pales in comparison.

Probably there was no plot/theme to write home about, prolly you wrote only because NC nudged you to do so. But as a reader and a fan of your writing, I was certainly disappointed reading this.

And whilst on Amitabh, this blog can be compared to some of his movies in early 90s like Jadugar, Ganga Jamuna Saraswati, Ajooba, Lal Badshah, which he did only for the sake of his friends like Prakash Mehra, Manmohan Desai, Shashi Kapoor etc..

No offence, Sam and NC.

Hopefully with experience the endings will be better. Sam's gotta learn the art of afterplay.

Sorry Sam. Couldn't resist.

dude... the fact that you actually went for the movie makes me feel that you deserve an award for waste of time, mental agony & torture. priyadarshan movies are very repetitive now & even paresh bhai does the same i-have-to-say-something-funny-deadpan act very often. isse achcha voh kamal hassan movie dekh leta...

I agree. I guess thats because he is simple narating a-day-in-life without being too insightful, serious or bloggy about it.

Mea Culpa. I ended this one in a tearing hurry so I could start this one.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...it-theone.html

And like Elito said, I was simply narrating a story. How am I to create an emotional or longish end to a movie 2 friends went to see together?
Tum log toh meri ending par emotional ho rahe ho. I feel like I should apologise lol.
