A Happy Easter

Phew! It's been a hectic few weeks for me. I've had to work till my eyes crossed and my hair stood up in unruly spikes from all the pulling in agony. But at least it hasn't been very boring.

A few weeks back, I managed to catch a play in Delhi titled 'Ghalib in New Delhi', which is a pretty humourous account of how the famous erstwhile Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib fares, when he visits his beloved Delhi in the year 2007. It elected genuine laughs from me, which means that it must be pretty good, as I am usually a jaded sorta customer.

I also managed to catch a few movies. Even Katrina Kaif ( who has has turned into even more of an eye-popping stunner) could not save Nameste London, which is trite and sophomoric. The Good German, on the other hand was going quite well, till they turned off the Air conditioning in the theatre, and I was forced to wake up. Now, 300, that is a movie to watch. The scenes are shot true Frank Miller style, and even the shots of blood (which, in this movie, spurts in abundance) are quite picturesque.

I have been watching some excellent movies on DVD though, starting with a real gem - Stranger Than Fiction, which reinforces my belief that Will Ferrel is a really talented actor. And of course, sweet Maggie Gyllenhaal, is there to tug at my heartstrings. Another amazing movie I saw was Little Miss Sunshine, which is sweet and weird at the same time. Go watch.

Well, I just have to wish everone a belated Happy Easter. I visited the Indian Habitat Center at Delhi to catch an easter concert, which was cancelled, and ended up watching the tail end of a very strange play, after which I proceeded to get myself drunk on Jack Daniels and port.
