Anyhow - he was in town this weekend and we caught up at Turquoise cottage in Delhi... partying away till the wee..hours of Sunday morning.
Baishali was due for the party - but she chose to spend some more time in Kolkata. :-(

Hm haath pe haath dhare nahin baithenge....

Palpable silence - Gurgaon ki laila and Gwalior ka chailla!!

Well - to be honest - I was a lil tense when I got in.... but then - as we started to converse... the walls came down. We ended spending more time than we'd anticipated.
All in all a great time.....!!!
Popping the bubbly... and it did come off with a pop

Cake..cake.. and some whiskey

Let's not forget the pizzas which went to waste.. cos' the guys decide to eat Tandoori chicken at the last minute.

oh - before I forget - dearly beloved - we were gathered at Avinashs house to celebrate the day he was downloaded into this world. Of course - perforce of habit - we were 2 days late :-)
STEP 1: Cutting the cake...
STEP 2: Applying it evenly...
STEP 3: Aah.. the smile!!
Avinash had his cake and ate it too

Happy Diwali 2K6

This year was a low-key diwali....
NO CRACKERS...
NO NOISY DRUNKEN CELEBRATIONS....

But I had loads of fun...
It a full family oriented celebration. It feels all warm inside to be with the ones who love you most. The only one missing was my sweetheart - who'd gone home to Kolkata for this festival. No worries - she'll be here in the next edition of the festival.

That's my Anila bua and Jatin Bhai, as we sit down for the pooja
Jatin - setting things alight!!

I srike a serious pose!!!

A tryst with the DON

Yep - I saw it...
First day - second show!!!

This is one stylish film. It's well made - kept the storyline intact - except for a few cosmetic changes - and done fultoo justice!!
The songs are the same and apart from the post-millenium techno feel - they're more or less intact. I do like the older versions of the songs though.

What really takes you by surprise -the whole look and feel. With films like this , Bollywood is definitely coming of age as the technical gap between east & west declines.

Shahrukh excels in the role of DON, while Boman is his usual great self. That guy can fit into so many roles that it ain't funny. The l;adies are there - Kareena in her brief role, is mesmerizing. Priyaka does her bit & Isha is only good for saying "Yes Darling". Arjun Rampal tries to put in the energy that he has - but it doesn't do wonders - so methinks it's going someplace else!!!

No story quips from me - go see it for yourself!!

Till we meet again.
