Movie Shoovie Award Shaward

I have plans to wake up at 6, take bath and finish the morning chores to sit down and watch the Oscars without any disturbance. The day nominations were announced Papa went, "Arrey yeh kya harr jagah Dog-Dog change karo!!". To my surprise, when me and papa were watching some random Hindi Movie on Star Gold, he said: "Oscars at 6.30 Monday morning right??". That means he might wake up and give me company, in all these years of my early morning fixation of watching the ceremony LIVE as it happens. This year I am going to watch it for two reasons:

1. To witness, hopefully, A.R. Rehman winning the Best Song and Best Musical Score...that would be just awesome. :)

2. Hopefully Kate Winslet will take away the Best actress award, coz I just saw THE READER and I was totally floored by her. Kate is easily the most talented and beautiful actress of our time.

The Rest, I dont really care. I probably would have skipped watching them this year if not for the Slumdog thingy. And Anil Kapoor is expected to make a clown out of himself I guess. He should exercise some restraint...I is a big put off for me, all the hooting and shouting and clapping.

AND WHOA!! Just googled...Hugh Jackman gonna host the awards.....I didnt know that! Normally I do. This tells you that I have better things to think about than the Oscars...but...I dont know what they are... :P

Funny thing. I was surfing the channels yesterday and I dont know why I stopped at ZEE CINEMA. They were showing "Phool Aur Kante", Ajay Devgan's debut film with Roja Girl Madhu. The song "Maine Pyaar tumhi se Kiya hai.....(toorooorooroooroooo)" was mid-way through and I remembered how crazy me and my cousin Maneesha used to be about that song. I think it was DD-1 that used to play the song an awefully lot and the cable fellow put up the pirated print a few times. Me and Maneesha used to sit up late nights to watch Ajay Devgan woo Madhu and catch the bad guys. It must have been the third or fourth time that we were seeing it together when Maneesha exclaimed: "AJAY I LOVE YOU!!" I dont remember how old I was but it was a big thing for me those days. Something that girls our age shouldnt talk shove!! :P 

I went ahead and told Mom about Maneesha talking "like that" and I remember being disappointed that she didnt say anything more than a "hmmmm". :p A few years later maybe, it was my turn to go crazy, when that song "Chura ke Dil mera" from that I-DONT-REMEMBER-WHICH Akshay Kumar-Shilpa Shetty movie hit the screens. Me and Maneesha were at it again, this time closing the doors of this room on the third floor, where we had put up a poster of Akkie Baby, and we used to Play that very song and dance like Heroines. Oh those were fun days :)

I met Maneesha a few days ago, we meet a lot lesser these days, more so after she got married. When she said it to my younger sister, "Dolly(Me) and Me used to be best friends once". I always thought as kids that we would always remain best friends. But things change, people change. At the end of it, we still give each other genuine hugs whenever we meet. There is an under-lying hostility for some reason, some difference that crept in but whenever I reminisce old times, It brings tears of laughter to my face. No matter how much I hate certain things about Maneesha, I do love her immensely...I only try not to remind myself about it for some reason. 

Ok this wasnt supposed to go the nostalgic way. The 25 random things tag is still a Work-in-Progess. I'm stuck at Sweet number 16. So watch out for this space. 

Also check out the latest TOP READ FOR THE WEEK. Its a wonderful blog, I'm sure you all would love it.

  1. I hope AR wins as well. Not because I liked his music in Slumdog (I did not like either the movie or the music), but he is a great composer and deserves an Oscar for all the truly amazing songs he has come up with till date.
    About people changing, yes, they do change, and it sucks. :(

  1. aqua gurl said...:

  1. Rakesh said...:

    Yup, So this post wasn't only about the Oscars. (torororo) he he, that song now seems weird. Innit? Somehow I didn't like Ajay Devgan at that time as well. I still find him repulsive.

    And I hear, Rahman has won two oscars :) Wow...

  1. sawan said...:

    congratulations.. all ur nominees won :P a.r rahman was awesome on stage and kate was a lil dramatic :P but again they are ur choice.. so once again congratulations :P

  1. Renu said...:

    Even i read somwhere that Anil kapoor was so eager to talk to Anjolina and all that tmasha about touching Anthony Hopkins's feet etc. He is such a joker.

    and U have been tagged !

  1. Swats said...:

    I enjoyed watching Main Khiladi Tu Anari..and i still like the song 'chura ke'..nw i can't stop humming it :P

    Rahman is a rock star! I am addicted to the free hugs song-'jiya se jiya'..

    Anil Kapoor is hideous to the core!

  1. Vee said...:

    Oye, ARR won and Resul too.. Awesome.. Jai Ho!!!

    I am follower of Oscars since '93.

    Hehe, u know when I was kid I used to say tududu which comes along with maine pyaar tumhi se kiya hai tududu, maine dil bhi tumhi ko diya hai tududu....

    that song is from Mai Khiladi Tu Anadi...

  1. SMRITI said...:

  1. SMRITI said...:

    @Reb aka Jiggy

    I agree about Slumdog...not the best of the Songs... But yeah, Rehman rocks and rules and deserves every recognizable honour on the face of this planet :)

  1. SMRITI said...:

  1. sawan said...:

    i watched the entire show.. thnx for my work :P my shift started at 7 in the morning and we have 2 big lcd screens at my floor :P

  1. k.ø.c.h.ü said...:

    hi...dear...feelin like long since v chatted...hmmm..:( ....didnt read de post..eyes strainin...hope u r havin real busy times...exhausted...i did a second song :) (a fusion)...n my airtel is dead temporarily...

  1. D@r$hi said...:

    Lovely thoughts...
    And moreover I would say thanks to u for making me recollect my fav songs of that time...and how funny they sound now...i wont tell u though which are they :) they are super funny and stupid songs ever.. But ill surely agree to u people change with time or may be time changes people... Don’t know which is really true...

  1. @Smriti and Rakesh -> Ajay Devgan is one of the best actors around in the film industry. Be it Omkara or Raincoat, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam or Zakhm or Yuva...he has delivered some splendid performances...yes, he is no Dino Morea in terms of looks, but I guess acting is beyond all that.

  1. SMRITI said...:

    @ Anil

    I'm so J..J...J :P Wow...Big big LCDs haan?? Can I come to your office during the F1 season?? :P

  1. SMRITI said...:


    So comments form has been missing something really huge around here and your comment here is just what the doctor ordered. :)

    Another song??? Wowiee...When do we all get to hear that?? And I am going to Kill my airtel permanently...irritated with them...going for ur biwi no 2 now..BSNL ;)

    Take care Kochu...will talk real real soon :) Hugs :)

  1. SMRITI said...:


    Thanks for dropping by again :) Well hota hai....we liked completely absurd songs when we were kids... music has changed a long way too isnt it? :)

  1. SMRITI said...:


    My problem is I cannot digest too much dishum dhadaka type movies...but yes I do watch HDDCS again and again only for Ajay Devgan...especially the last scene when he leaves Mrs.Rai-Bachchan at the theatre... that was heart-breaking :( Still cry when I see that scene....such intense eyes. And who can forget THE LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH...actually asked my sister to watch it before her social studies exam :P

    I am yet to watch Raincoat, mom was telling it is a brilliant movie...

    Waise Jiggy...I dont like Dino Morea ... I think Ajay is better than Dino :P ...Aap feel mat ho jao...abhi itthe debate karke kya faayda? CHALO AB HUGS DE DO!! :)

  1. Yeserady was my vrat day ....and still I woke up ..watched oscars did puja and ate a lot of phals :P

    gosh! eating fruits is as killing as not eating anything :P


    waise pata hai phool aur kaante chhutpan mein meri best movie thi..usmein wo ajay bike mein chadh k aata hai and wo scene jab uske pass ek goli hoti hai and wo kehta hai..tumhare rago mein xxxyy ka namak hai par mere mein khoon..isis tarh ka sumthing tha... :P


    now I feel stupid :P

  1. SMRITI said...:


    Mera bhi vrat tha kal :( Irritating...pehli baar poora vrat rakha aur jo haalat kharab hui kya bataun :( Bhagwan ji ko poochho ki bhookhe rehne se kya hota hai? :(
    Btw...pehle ladke ho jisne kaha hai ki wo vrat rakhta least the first I know :)

    Kya baat hai...tum bhi apun ke maafik the chhutpan mein?? Yippeee...mujhe laga ki hum hi namoone the :P :P
    Bike waala scene yaad hai...baaki ka yaad nahi :(
