Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh

HE - Mithilesh Shukla
AGE: Wrong side of the thirties
HEIGHT: 157 cms
FEATURES: sadly nondescript
In short, just another face in the multitude

SHE - Veena
AGE: that magical 30 - not a day more, not a day less
HEIGHT: 165 cms
FEATURES: Strikingly simple yet enchanting
To sum up, the woman of every man's dream

So what happens when HE meets SHE, of course in the presence of a million relatives? Obviously there is no physical chemistry and quite clearly this is not LOVE-AT-FIRST-SIGHT...but still there is magic...

What happens next is that HE marries SHE and they settle down to a life of marital bliss till HE starts having these trips of guilt whether he really deserves her only for the film to end on a happy note.
What to look out for:The brilliant Rajpal Yadav who elevates every single frame he appears in to dizzy heights
Well etched performances by Rituparna Sengupta and Kay Kay Menon and commendable support from all the supporting cast
An enjoyable first half punctuated by a witty screenplay and delightful dialogues (not to forget Naseerudin Shah's miss-not voice over)
A light hearted family entertainer
What is missing:Pace in the second half
Verdict:If you've had enough of watching
a. wannabe entertainers taking you through sight seeing trips of Down Under under the guise of making a comment on serious societal trends (OR)
b. lewd comedies with tonnes of skinshow
then MMPAW is just about what the doctor ordered for you. Two Thumbs up to Chandan Arora and MMPAW.

A promise is a promise...

..and once its made, it just should not be broken...DEFINITELY NOT....

But what happens when two promises happen to intersect in such a weird way that to honor one would mean breaking is too complicated,isn't it...Anyway since the decision to stop blogging was only a promise made to myself, I guess I can safely dump that for the time being and honor the promise made to VS.

After all, if one has had his yahoo mail acct hacked and password changed, and then does not remember anything of the data enetered 8 years back starting from the B'day, the time zone selected, the alternate email id given, the reminder question and still manages to get the account reactivated again thanks to a brilliant buddy, one does have to pay the price for it...Life sure was hell without YM :-)

So here we go... VS, Lou u da and thanks for all the help...I will try and keep my end of the bargain...
