The Dirty Post

You say it a dozen times and yet do not mind repeating it for the thirteenth time. You shamelessly say some words in English which when deciphered may sound hilariously and ridiculously funny.
“Oh Shit!” we say that in English. Try saying the same in your mother tongue and you will realize that you are talking Shit. The F-word follows the same. The usage of the F-word is so f****** common that people don’t give a shit about what the word F*** actually means. If our bosses are assholes they must definitely be speaking shit!  If everything in the world is bullshit, the smell must be awful.
Does that mean that we do not think as much in English as we think in our mother tongue? I wonder how words with the same meaning have different decency levels when it comes to the language in which we utter the word. So the next time you enthrone anybody with words like bastard, swine, son of a pig, think twice! - Just kidding, don’t give a shit! If somebody is an asshole he’d  better be called an ass…

The Attacks Of 26/11 - Reviewed

WHEN THE SILVER SCREEN TURNED RED      The Attacks of 26/11 is not a movie that should be evaluated by its star ratings. This movie pays homage to the innocent people and the brave policemen who were killed in the horrendous attacks on Mumbai by ten brainwashed men with grenades and AK-47s in their hands.
     The movie demonstrates the state of mind of the then-Joint Commissioner of Police Rakesh Maria as the attacks were taking place. Director Ram Gopal Varma does not bother going into the details. He reduces the attacks at Oberoi and Nariman House to dialogues. How could he skip the NSG operations?

     Ram Gopal Varma shows idols of God at places where the attacks took place as though he is challenging the mere existence of God. Nana Patekar delivers a power-packed performance. His aggravated emotions in the scene where he explains Islam and Jihad to Kasab are sure to leave you gnashing your teeth against the evil killers. I got goosebumps throughout the movie.
