American History X

One Race....The Whites

American History X is a film which features the racial discrimination and the consequences in the society. It isnt the Edward Norton you saw in Fight Club. With his shaven head and the swastik tatoo on his chest he looks damn cool. The plot is about how a enigmatic students life gets fiddled by this racial discrimination stuff and when he realises what he is into, its too late. The ways he frames his speech is really mesmerising. This film would stay a topper for a long long time.

IN BRUGES



After a long time I am seeing a movie like this.You dont often see a movie which is touching ,which reveals the earthly facts.A clear depiction of human tendencies is the bonus of the film.Ken(Brenden Gleeson) and Ray(Colin Farell) are two hit men who have moved to Bruges,Belgium to take a short nap.Ray s memories of killing a small boy in an encounter haunts him.THough having done murders this one was really troubling him.Maybe since he was in the peaceful city of Bruges which is famous for its historical churches and other artwork ,the serenity of the place must have changed him.There Ray and Ben meet midget , a director from America and the prostitutes from Amsterdam.Ray falls in love for a girl in the film.She is actually pretty cute with eyes doing the trick each time she smiles.Their romance is worth seeing.THe way Ray flirts with the girl raises giggles.An finally when the order comes from the boss for the hit men for an assasination the story takes a turn.A drama of high profile.

THE DARK KNIGHT



Yeah ..the long wait for Batmsn to return again has ended.But is the film successful??Believe me the film has lived upto its expectations.There are hella lot of characters Christian Bale(Batman),Morgan Freeman(Fox),Michael Caine(Pennyworth),Aaron Eckhart(Harvey Dent),James Gordan(Gary Oldman),Heath Ledger (The Joker),Maggie(Rachel).Having introduced the characters lets move on to the plot.Harvey Dent along with James Gordan and Batman helps to reduce crime in the GOtham city.When all seems to come under rest the disturbed mafia turn towards the JOker .You would really wonder how Ledger came out with such a performance,there are even talks that his performance would get him the oscar.A tribute to the dead boy.Joker kills people asking The Batman to reveal his identity.The story goes on and finally Rachel is killed in the go .Harvey Dent turns sadistic.Then how Batman overcomes these is put forwarrd in the most vivid manner.ANd i would rate this film a 8/10.THough the characters are appealing i dint like the storyline much.THis may be topping the box office but not the best of Batman sequence.

HAROLD AND KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GAUTEMENO BAY



Harold(John Cho) and Kumar(Kal Penn) are rocking again in this film.After four years of the release of Harold and KUmar go to THe White Castle this film is again a theatrical comedy.But at times it is surprising how the director has put forward the racist confrontations so plainly.At times it is hurting but at the end the director has proved that each race has its own ethnicity.Americans are really tough guys but Kumar gets the going tough for them.I couldnt just refrain myself from laughing my hearts out after seeing Karl Penns acts.This time the story goes scuh that Harold and Kumar are moving to see Harolds girlfriend but in the plane due to Kumars wierd activities he is convicted of planning for bombing the plane and sentenced to prison in guantanamo bay.And how they manage to escape from there landing in the mexican party,the bottomless party,ans eventually landing in Presidents white house is highly comical.There is not a moment where you can stop laughing.

LOST BOYS--THE TRIBE



The latest version of the 1987 film lost boys isnt upto the mark.It has been a while seeing a vampire film.The plot is so meek.Chris and his younger sister are moving to their aunts place in California after the demise of their parents in an accident.They are innocent of the fact that they are about to confront a group of vampire locals.The vampires led by Shane Re really cool.The going gets tough when Nicole falls for Shane.Chris has to slay Shane befor his little sisteer turns up into a vampire herself and for this he takes the favour of the local vampire slayer.The film doesnt have a single scene which is thrilling.We could just predict the happenings before hand.Except for the cast the film has nothing to be said about.

YOU DONT MESS WITH A ZOHAN



Zohan(Adam Sandler) is a mossad secret service agent.He has amazing skills and is the best in town.The women are mesmerised by his skills.But the truth is that ZOhan had never felt great with his achievements.Sohe dicusses with his parents that he wants to end this and wants to become a hair dresser.But his parents resent his decision.He fakes his death and moves to America to earn a living of his own.He becomes a famous hair dresser and the secret is that he had a different way to move with his lady customers.He becomes so famous in town.But he is soon recognised and is hunted.This film like all other Adams films is highly humorous.

JUMPER


David in his desperate moment fins that he has the ability to teleport himself.As soon as he realises this he goes to a bank in New York robs the vaults and lives a sophisticated life until the day he sees Roland.He comes to know that the saga of the Jumpers have been existing for years and Roland belongs to the group that has sweared to kill these Jumpers.And he evades him and invites his girlfriend Millie for a tour.But he finds himself in trouble again when Roland hunts him down to wherever he goes.

21


If you are an avid viewer of casino kinda films then heres your jackpot.THis film is about a young aspiring student of MIT Boston who wants to earn money to transfer to the school of medicine in Harvard.And luck favours him when he is introduced to his new professor Micky.He joins the elite group of card readers who are good at plundering the game at casinos.The group enjoys their weekends at casinos and what interests Ben is the money that he earns to fulfill his lifetime goal.But the going takes a turn when the owner of the casinno at Vegas finds out what has been happening and has his personal vengions for Micky.In the end a hub-hub takes place and Ben is in the safer side alongwith his girlfriend.Dont have great expectations for the film.

LEATHERHEADS


I warn you beforehand that this is a film of yesteryear but brings in the romance ,action,drama,and lots more.In 1925 Dodge Coonolly(George Clooney) the pro footbal champ of america tries hard to bringup the sport to lives.His latest plan is to checkin a college football star (John Krasinski) CarterRutherford into his team.And this new team mate has the additional advantage of advertisement since he is a war hero who is considered to have single handedly overcome a pack of german soldiers.When all goes fine the budding journalist(Renée Zellweger)Lexie Littleton comes in .Then starts the rivalry over wooing the girl between the teammates.But the woman is more intense in bringing out the mystery behind carters war heroism.And eventually how Dodge overcomes the hurdles of getting his girl and having his team intact to win trophies is greatly brought out.Three cheers to George Clooney for his directorskills and his act.And believe me man he is really sexy even at this age.

THE RUINS


 A thriller after a long time ,in the right sense a perfect thriller.As always we have a group of young guys who are on a venture to check out on their missing troop member.Guided by a native they land up on the ruins of a legendary place.But they are hunted down one by one by mysterious happenings.But what is out of place is the gang who force the troop to the bay.And the cast have a role but not as eventful as the sound effects and graphics.A thriller indeed.

THE FORBIDDEN KINGDOM


Jetli is cast in two roles the Mnkey King and the Silent Monk.Jackie chan plays the role of Old Hop alongside the hero and the Golden Sparrow(Yeifi).A action filled fantasy film.It is true to our expectations both the martial art heroes have showcased their talents.The plot is such that the hero kid Jason somehow lands upon the legendary stick weapon used by the Monkey kIng.He lands in china and teams up with Jackie Chan and Yeifi to help the Monkey King who is imprisoned for more than five hundred years by the Warlord and in this journey he overcomes the white haired demoness and other cult killers.And at last he helps them out and lands back in America with a additional qualification of learning Kung Fu and a girl friend as sweet as Yeifi.Martial Arts with fantasy really works wonders.

THE BANK JOB


You wouldnt really believe that these things happened for real.In 1071 a foolprrof bank in baker street was looted and money worth three million were robbed.these were never recovered and the news dissapeared from headlines after the intervention of the government.The director has first time brought out the reasons behind this robbery in this film.It reveals the corruption,murder and a dirty sex scandal which involves the royal family which were among the loot.The film is great along with the cast.Terry(Jason Statham) is mislead by Martine Love(Saffron Burrows) to the bank and once they loot by an underground tunnel the thrill begins.Dont get drifted away by the name since it has nothing to do with the italian job except for the robbery part and Jason Statham playing the lead role in both film.

INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL


Archaeologist and adventurer Indian Jones(Harrison Ford) is involved in finding a crystal skull which is believed to have supernatural powers.The hunt begins when a young boy brings him a map which his colleague has sent.Meanwhile the Soviet are behind him to take for themselves the crystal skull.Leading the Soviet side is Cate Blanchett.How Jones overcomes the hurdles and places the skull in the rightplace is given out in a thrilling way.But what is tiresome is that there are many twist that hampers the flow of te film.Harrison ford has excelled as always.Another thing which is missing is that Cate Blanchet is not up to her abilities in this film and isnt impressive.Another interesting saga of Indian Jones.

WANTED




If you like action flicks you better check this out.James is trained by Angelina Jolie(fox) since he is wanted by a cult who believe in keeping up their trust.Morgan Freeman has done his role to perfection.If you like Tomb Raider then you would see a sequel of the film.Angelina Jolie is said to be the mother of three after she recently gave birth to twins.But she is a sexy damsel in this film.The story isnt that good but the effects and the stunt are awesome.Worth your money.

NEVER BACK DOWN



In his new high school the hero is lured again into his world of boxing.His family is against the game yet he is involuntarily lured until he finds his new master of martial arts who teaches him what kick boxing is out.And ultimately how the hero takes over the bully is the final sequence of the film.The teens reallly take it to the streets and the way they enjoy the fights is really awesome.The film has some deadly action but is weak in other places.A very old storyline with a different mix.

PATHOLOGY


The film doesnt provide us with the thrilling moments which it promises in the beginning.The cast are so new that they are inept to acting.But the mortuary scenes are realistic and the vengence is has the animal instincts.A group of medical students devise a deadly game to find who does the perfect murder.The love making is so harsh they show us what they say us ecstasy in love making.The lead role is not the perfect pick.Goes along with many thriller movies which are only named for convenience.

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS


Cameron Diaz and Aston Tucker rock the film.Diaz is ditched by her husband and Ashton is considered to be worthless by his father.These two plan for a trip to Las Vegas the sin city where they find each others tale more pitiable.They go for a party where they get drunk and in the morning they sit looking at the wedding ring.And they plan of divorce before which they hit a jackpot.Whether they part or thier love for each other grows is dealt in the second half.THe quarrels between the two are quite watching.And the friends of both play their part to the best.

HANCOCK


I was greatly disappointed after seeing the film.I was so excited earlier that Will Smith is going to appear as a SuperHero in his next film but all those expectation has gone to pieces.Except the lead role done by Will Smith the others didnt make their presence convincing.Other thanWill smith there is nothing to speak of in this filmThe story line is too weak and lingers at certain places.Hancock is a SuperHero who isnt worried about the people and his behavioural patterns irritates the people.He then meets a public relations proffessional to promises to repair his name.Hancock falls in love with the proffessionals wife.And then what happens is somewhat a puzzle.The dialogues are too long.If not for those innocent acts by hancock which rises giggles the film is too boring.Charles Therones characterisation is so weak.After her award winning films North Country and Monster this film is just a drop of her talents.The director promises to unveil certain twists in the film but even that isnt convincing.All together a daring venture by the director.

300



Of all the war films i have seen this one is special.The fascinating feature in this film is the six pack abs which is so alluring to watch.THis film drives me crazy and i have seen this film umpteen times.I wondered how to this date i havent heard of these great men who have fought so valiantly.After seeing this film i was so curius that i read a lot of articles about them.THe effects and the technology used in this fil were great.I usually like films with bow and arrows.Sword is a common thing used by all warriors.But the speciality of these men are the way they use the spear.To this day i thought that spear wasnt so effective.The dialogues are so scintillating.And the various stratefies they work out are great.Takes you to the old ages.

PREPARE FOR GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love Actually(2003)


If you havent seen this film then please please its my humble request to see this one atleast once.If you hate love then watch this movie then you would realise what the word love really means.In this film the director has chosen eight couples and have intrwoven the plot and this all happens just befor the month of christmas.And among these what i liked most was that of Mark who is in love with his friends wife juliet(Keira Knightley).Though he loved ever since they met it was by pure coincidence that juliet happens to be his friends wife.The pain of being a loner in love is clearly depicted.The night i saw the movie i would never forget those touching moments when mark proposes in a funny way (yet the passion of love still in it) just befor christmas.wooooooow..I am really flying high even while writing this.Guys its a movie of a lifetime.

STEPHEN R COVEY'S SEVEN HABITS


Of all the books that i have read about self improvement this one is really mesmerising.You have the feeling that you have been transformed into a new individual once you read this.Earlier The MOnk Who Sold His Ferrari was my favourite but now it has replaced it.It really gets into our live and the way the authoe guides us out of our troubles is soothing indeed.If you ever happen to be in distress our find that there is no light in your life please do turn towards this book.I guarantee you that this one is your medicine.

Troy


This is a film which shows the various leaders who evolve according to their condition.THough its an epic where the plot revolves over the main character Achilles(Brad Pitt) the other characters Hector(Eric Bana) and his brother( Orlando BLoom) have their significant role.The king of thesales Agamenon is one who doesnt bother about others.Achilles is willing to die fighting for his mother foretells his future and yet he moves towards the battle of troy.ANd Orlando Bloom Is in Love with Helen and as the saying goes Love is Blind the duffer brings her home and paves the way for the war.The women have done their role adorably.The characters in the appropriate robes look as if they belong to those centuries.All together another warfilm which goes along with Benhur and Gladiator

IS NATIONALISM A BOON OR A CURSE ?

                 
               Nationalism- when one hears this they at once think about their motherland. Everyone consider their homeland to be superior to others in one way or the other. Here we do not talk about the spirit of one’s nationalism but bearing it in mind that is nationalism A BOON OR A CURSE? It would be wrong to see nationalism as either an unmitigated evil or a universal virtue. It can be both a boon and a curse, depending on the circumstances such as two sides of the same coin. Nationalism tends to be negative when people confront each other along the lines of national divisions whereas it can be productive enough when social divisions and hostilities tend to be based on other identities such as religion, community or ethnicity. Central to understanding the contingent viability of the role of nationalism is the need to see nationality as one identity among many that we all have.

               But we must never forget that even we come from different races, color, caste, religions, creed, our hearts beat as one. So let us keep aside our spirit of nationalism when the circumstances make it a terrible curse, and deliberate it when it would be a great boon. There is no mystery in the variability and contingency of the effects of nationalism. But there certainly is a firm invitation here to think and reason and scrutinize before we decide what to do.

OUT OF THE THREE - OBAMA WOULD BE MA PICK

Consider that u r in a land of whites,where the race the color are what religion and caste is for us in India.A place where the blacks and other races are treated as if they arent the children of god.Am referring to none other than the United States.What would your slogan be would it be God Bless America,no Indian would be chanting that we would rather prefer God Damn America.But this one man Obama has really started his first step towards the great voyage to end this race conflicts.Barack Obama was born to a black Kenyan father and a white mother.His parents separated when he was very young and his mother remarried a man fromIndonesia.He received his early schooling in a muslim school in Indonesia.Later on he was raised in Hawaii where whites are in minority.

From his autobiography DREAMS FROM MY FATHER:A STUDY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE .Let me put forward his extracts:
"We were always playing on the white mans court.Whatever they decided to do it was their decision.Infact you coulnt even be sure that everyhting yoou had assumed to be an expression of your black,unferreted self-the humour,the songthe behind the backpass.At best these things were a refuge at worst a trap."
"My identity might begin with the fact of my race,but it didnt,couldnt,end there.At least that is what i would choose to .

Perhaps in this man Obama,who has lived in three continents,who is not of a particular race,and not of a particular religion,and who believes that all men are equal,a soul searching for honesty,we have found another Mahatma.

INDIA'S HOLD ON THE TIBETIAN ISSUE

                                            Tibet claims that china treats them as a minority while China claims that the Dalai Lama has a hand in all the happenings. The truth is that Tibet has been fighting for years for their independence,and this is the first time it has become such an international affair.China is not ready to taken any further step since the Olympics is to be held in Beijing.The other nations are not ready to back off from china keeping in mind thie socio-economic relations that had existed for years.

                                           Now it would be interesting to see India's hold on this issue.The present goverment has said that it considers Tibet to be a part of China and it won't in any way help or support the tibetian supporters.This was evident in the way they stopped the emigres from marching,leading a silent protest in India.

                                           But the oppositon party considers that India should shed out fears and should support the tibetians ,for what they are suffering is not from inferiority but Genocide.The media has also flashed news that India should back up the Tibetians.

Now let us review what would happen if India supports Tibet.
  • The event would just boomerang back to India.The Chinese government has held a firm position in accepting that the Kashmir problem shouldnt be taken to the Un and it is not of international affairs.
  • The other thing is that we had a pact with China about our Sino-Indian border conflict and at this time if we do anything against them then it would really turn up to be turmoil.
  • We have earlier given refuge to the Dalai Lama long back.But India doesn't need to poke its nose at this point into this affair.Even this is not going to affect the Political parties in any way.

IS SWAMI VIVEKANANDA'S PHILOSOPHY ACCEPTABLE

Since i have been named after this great person who had his and preached his own principles i have read his books.His preachings are all around one basic principle ,detachment.He gives an example of a circle of relations where expectations are indefinite.When a stone is being thrown into a pond,we can see ripples.When we do a deed that somehow forms ripples and are always in the sub-concious level of the mind.And these ripples together form the character.He wants us to love and be detached at the same time.Is this possible??Personally i feel that we indians are at times rather often reffered as sentimental idiots.That is something i am proud of and we all should be proud of.The westerners abandon their child in the name of helping them to face life.They postpone childbirth saying that they arent prepared for it and want to live their life to the fullest.The bonding between the parents and the children,the brother and sister relation,the joint family culture are things we were following once.And with all this happening around and the bond getting stronger each day.How is it possible to be detached.Maybe i haven got it in the right sense and if anyone does do post me.

A COOL EVENING

I was strolling by ma old school when i saw my old friend.For the next five mins i dint know what was happening but were laughing in each others arms.We were talking about the times when we were in short pants cracking jokes at each and every one we saw,how we enjoyed playing basketball,our staff,our school and lot of these stuff which friends would be sharing when they see after a long time.And the conversation turned spicy when it came to this part.Both being engineers though different mains we knew were we would land in the end.Talking about higher studies we discussed whether MBA or MS would be more suitablefor us to pursue.Visiting a foriegn nation has been my lifelong dream though not as an ambassador let me go there with a student visa was what he said.Suddenly he turned cynical saying that no one is gonna care for you unless you prove your worth.Yeah that was true and i accepted with him.But he was circling over this one point for a long time.It took me time to realise that he was actually not happy with the way proffesionals are being treated in India.He was against the outsourcing stuff, he had a long list of them.All this time he was telling about how India is and then i asked him what he wanted it to be like.He had no words.As always it was an another letter into the complaint box.Then we wished each other good luck and rode back each fending over the fact that we have never changed.

Cricket is a lovely game of which i am a vived fan.The introduction of the T20 was a masterstroke that made the game more interesting.Lets not debate on the fact whether this is going to affect the temperament of the yougsters who also have to play the test matches which is of a different calibre.Whether u agree it or not the latest form of cricket has caught the imagination of not only cricket lovers but also the general public.But by adding masala and glamour to it THe BCCI has transformed the game into a fashion show.Bollywood used to be the craze until recently.But now it seems even Bollywood stars have become cricket crazy.One thing is certain;neither it is the love for the game nor the spirit of sporstsmanship that is attracting them but the glamour,publicity and the money associated with the game.When one part of India is plagued with hunger, unemployment, indebtedness;the other is indulging in extravagance.This is what we call "THE GREAT INDIAN DIVIDE".

AN INDIAN SCRIBBLING

i have been scribbling a lot ......from the day i started to write my day today happenings....from this day let me share it with u people over the net..........from my childhood i have been brooding over the fact that.......
"""""""""WHY ARE THE POOR POOR AND THE RICH RICH"""""''''"""""""""'
This dilineation is not something to exhibit power over the people.But to show the reincarnation of a true Brahmin(karma).i wonder how many of my friends hav felt for the poor and needy.But i personally give a mooments prayer rather than alms.Hav u ever thought of what would be ur fate if u were an illegal child,a deaf,dumb or a blind one.These are in real terms ad-ons to the existing worries.Is it enough that we keep praising mother theresa over the fact that she helped people overcome their shortcomings.Let us think about this for a moment why doesnt Vijay Mallya,The Ambani bros who are hailed to be the icons of todays india be the eleventh hour samaritan in the lifes of the people below the line of poverty.The reliance adds to the woes of the merchants but i dont say that he has to restrict his ambitions.Why not his be something which would help out the entire lot of indians.And the other one Force India we have made our stand in hockey our national game where we couldn even clear the preliminary rounds..................

So where shall i conclude,as already said these are just scribblings for u to think over

urs lovingly,
