History doesn't appeal to many. Similar is the case with politics. Both subjects are areas which would make many cringe. A very small percentage of the populous take interest to know about incidents from the past or keep a track of how things are moving in the political circle. In a situation like this, imagine an Indian author who comes up with an idea to write a book that tackles both the subjects which would rather deter a reader to pick up the book from the shelf. If that was not enough, the author doesn't try to find a safe path by looking for a plot that might invigorate some interest into skeptical readers.
Who wants to know how life was lived 2300 years ago when India was Bharat, when our country was not divided by states, but kingdoms, when the most fearful situation wasn't a terrorist attack but invasion of kingdom by Alexander? Cut to times like today. Why would you like to read about a political party based in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh?
There is no rule that this book hasn't broken. There is no safe path that was taken with this book. There is no doubt in my mind that many people might not pick up this book after reading the summary on back cover in book stores or in websites which have now become the most popular medium to buy books, and rightfully so.
Confusing title for a post, isn’t it? Well as confusing as the title may be, the set of people who are the main reason behind this post are far more confusing. Have you ever come across someone who has been educated for almost 20 years of his/ her life in English, but can’t hold a conversation in English? If this comes as a shock to you, you’re definitely blessed (consider yourself really fortunate) to be around people who do not belong to this category but trust me, they are large in number and not that difficult to spot. Also, I’m not referring to students who’re from the most remote villages but students who are from Mumbai, have a college degree and still (in my opinion) are as illiterate as a person can be.
Continuing the streak of uncommon romantic movies after the last post in the same category, here's yet another movie which is expected to release on July 30, 2010. Beastly is based on a best selling book of the same name which is written by Alex Flinn. The movie stars Alex Pettyfer (of Tormented, Wild Child & Strombreaker fame) & Vanessa Hudgens (of Robot Chicken & Bandlsam fame). The trailer of the movie gives you a good idea about the plot of the movie. I hope you enjoy the same and share it with all your contacts. Do keep visiting and do drop in your thoughts on the movie.
Period films are not as common in Bollywood as compared to the sheer number of films which release in Hollywood within the same genre. Hence, with a period movie comes a lot of expectations and one such movie which would try to match to viewers expectations soon is 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai'. Directed by Milan Luthria (of Taxi No. 9 2 11, & Hattrick fame), the movie which revolves around strong characters and the world of crime. Starring Ajay Devgan (of Raajneeti, Omkara & Company fame); Emraan Hashmi (of Tum Mile, Gangster & Jannat fame); Kangana Ranaut (of Fashion, Kites & Gangster fame); and Prachi Desai (of Rock On!! fame) amongst others.
