Whoever I tell so roll their eyes thinking I must have gone insane to go for a movie all by myself. But I ask why?? Has any of you done so? I mean after being married for quite long? Well..this was a first for me after being married although I wonder whats the connection of being married or not. But somehow now everyone expects that either one should go with hubby dear or with a friend.
Yesterday I had gone to meet a prospective employer which may not eventually be a prospective employer..*sob* *sob* but since the meeting ended early and as I was driving back I saw this Multiplex on the way and decided to check out if 'Khoya Khoya Chand' is playing. Since hubby was not interested in watching this one I thought I will watch it by myself especially since I'm totally vella these days. So after enquiries I had the option of watching Dus Kahaniyan which was scheduled in about 35 minutes. I gave in to the temptation and went ahead and bought the tickets!
As I was waiting I told Hubby about it. He was not particularly happy that I am watching the movie by myself since he too wanted to see it too! But then he didn't have much choice since I already had the ticket. *chuckle*
When I went in to see the movie I had this perception in mind that there will be 10 interlinked stories but it turned out to be 10 different stand alone stories with different titles and different cast. I liked it. Really liked the concept. Almost all the stories were good. But then I have my favourites and the ones that I didn't like much.
I would put the Shabana Azmi and Naseeruddin Shah one on the top, then the Nana Patekar one, then Amrita Arora one, then Neha Dhupia and Mahesh Manjrekar. Masumeh and Jimmy Shergill one plus Manoj Bajpai and Diya Mirza will take the same rank. Aftab Shivdasani was also OK OK. I least liked the Dino one and the Sanjay Dutt one.
Its a overall good movie. One time watch for sure. I would love to see the Shabana Azmi and Naseeruddin Shah one again! Shabana Azmi was so wonderful. She looked like a total South Indian Brahmin. The expressions, the gestures, the body movements everything was superb! And what I liked the best was how the topic of Hindu and Muslim and the disconnect there was handled so beautifully!
Won't spill more beans. So go ahead and watch it! You will like it too!
