Break ke Baad

No..This is not a review of the above said movie..It is about the beautiful art direction..I absolutely love how aaliyah's (deepika padukone..for those who havent seen the movie) was done..I was amazed at how attention was paid to tiniest of details to how a free spirited girl like aaliyah's room should look like..Red walls,messy dresser spoke volumes about Aaliyah the free bird..Even the beach shack in australia looked amazing..pssst i would love to live in some place like that..*sigh* colourful pop art cushions,mugs,the couch...they all were in such a sync with the theme of the movie..It was so refreshing n vibrant unlike the kjo n yrf larger than life rooms of their characters..One particular thing that caught my eye was an inflated palm tree that was in the corner of the balcony of the beach shack...I want that cute little thingy!!!

Another movie which i liked for the same reasons is Wake Up Sid..I am sure whoever has seen the movie must have liked it too!! :)

Winter Woes

Its that time of the year again..!!! Dip in temperature,cold dark mornings,warm thick blankets....u get the gist...But its also time for my annual influenza days..*aachooo* Though winters in mumbai are quite mild but low temperature coupled with the pollution really gets on to me *boohoo* *cough cough* *sniffle* Every year at the onset of winter I'm down with flu :( No matter how careful i am but i eventually catch that awfully slow cold!!!!! *sniffle* But i still love this weather..The city looks amazing wrapped in the blanket of morning fog..Hot Coffee,even hotter samosas n who can forget its time for Christmas!!!!!!!!!! The whole world gears up for this festival n adorns itself in shades of reds n greens..The Christmas tree, Santa Claus n his lil helpers, Christmas carols..the glee is infectious..So its time to put on that red cap n sing "Jingle Bells Jingle Bells!!!!!"

P.S. This is specially dedicated to my friend Richa who loooooooves u gal!! <3

The other day i was mindlessly surfing channels on tv (as usual) when i happened to see this documentary about heroin addiction on national geographic. It was shocking to see how easily people get hooked to drugs. And anybody could fall a prey to this addiction. It crosses the bar of gender,caste,class and religion. The documentary followed the journey of various junkies..It was appalling to see the plight of youngsters who become addicts n how they destroy their otherwise normal lives. They lie,steal,enter into prostitution and do just about anything to get their 'fix of the day'. The docu followed a Norwegian junkie and his girlfriend. This guy wanted to kick his addiction but was too scared to do so for the fear of withdrawal. His girlfriend did try going to a rehab but ran away as she couldnt handle the withdrawal. So now the guy couldnt make himself go to a rehab cause of the very same reason and also since this addiction of theirs is the only connection they have. Now whether its his love for his gf or the drug thats keeping him from going to a rehab no one can say...
