MY DIARY (#11)

Source: Google Image

Dear Blog,

It's been a while, so I wanted to say 'Hello'. I went to watch the movie 'Dear Zindagi', starrer Alia Bhatt and Shahrukh Khan. The movie is rooted around a girl (Alia Bhatt) with her troubled life. You can correlate her problems with your own problems or you must have seen someone alike in your family. She came across a psychologist(Shahrukh  Khan), where she finds the turning point of her life.

I had never expected such matured acting from Alia Bhatt. The way she acted after her break up, showing her insecurities, not expressing herself much and showing all the trauma from her childhood. Shahrukh  was the best choice for the role of the psychologist, as his charisma was needed to deliver the 'gyan' about life in a cooler manner. I wish to watch more women centered movies in Bollywood.

"Don't let your torturous  past cover your present to ruin your beautiful future."

The movie is deep with thought provoking philosophies and crisp humor. This movie will make you ponder as a parent, whether you've done some injustice towards your child. This movie will make you wonder, whether you've any special memories from childhood.

"Sometimes we choose difficult paths to achieve our dreams. but, what is the point of taking such decisions when we're not ready to face the consequences."
So true... Even I came across such points in my life, where I had taken difficult decisions, thinking that it's the only way out. The consequences of those decisions all went vein.
"If you want to receive the love of life, then learn to love your life first."
I thoroughly follow the above line, I love my life in spite of  it's roller coaster ride and all the surprises. I consider me as my favorite person in the world.

Now, I know what you want to ask... And my answer is 'Yes, I missed you blog... I missed you so much... It was hard to rekindle with writing after a long break. But, after watching 'Dear Zindagi' I've decided to meet you first... '

                                                                                                                            See you again blog...

This is my first read from the author. but, after completing this I'll definitely read more of his works. The writing makes the story more beautiful and I fell for the writing. All the characters are well etched out. The novel has made the perfect balance between crime, technology and romance. 

Things I like!!!

There're lots of things to point. Firstly, the story and writing style. Secondly, the well developed main characters and side characters and thirdly the twisted ending, which I didn't anticipate

THE THREE WISE MONKEYS: Book Review


P.s: This book was given in exchange of an honest review.

Book Blurb:-


The trio—Amar, Akbar, and Anthony—had no clue whatsoever about their goddammit indecisive-careers-and-indefinite-struggles.

And that was because they were born with the Peter Pan Syndrome and were simple enough to be tricked by anyone, including their mystifying girlfriends—Meghna, Farah, and Sarah. And as is the fate of all morons, they were drawn into
trouble—deep trouble—of hiding crores of rupees of black money in secret offshore companies.

Will their mistake of turning a blind eye to the philosophy of ‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’ cost them their careers and put them in prison? 
Or 
Will Lady Luck change their fortunes forever?

My Review: -


The story revolves around three best friends - Amar, Akbar and Anthony, who are chartered accountants. They finished their Studies and planned to open their firm together. The story is also about circumstances they faced, while chasing after their dreams. This is my first read from Jeet Gain and I'm satisfied after reading this.

The language of the story is simple yet it'll make you think in a different sense. You won't feel any difficulty while comprehending the story. The character sketch and narration are well etched out.

Things I Like!!!

The innocence and bonding of three best friends will make you adore them more.
The trigger of humour will brighten up your mood.

Things I didn't Like!!!

The only thing which I didn't like was the length of the book. It's 400 pages, and sometimes I felt the story is little dragged.

I will give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars. It's recomended to all humour lovers.

THE COLOUR OF LOVE: Book Review


The Colour of Love: Trumpets and bugles, there was music all over...

Book Blurb:
Sarfaraz is brought up with a good value system by his devoted parents. With time, curiosity and adolescent growth pangs take him through many experiences. His first brush with girls starts with a friend, and slowly meanders into casual flirtatious affairs with girls at college. 

All through it, he realises that none of them have his undying, true love. A time comes when he realises who he truly loves, and in the midst of it all, he handles brutal enmity and takes on vile characters that misbehave with his friends. 

Sarfaraz's grows up in Coimbatore when there occur a series of bomb blasts. His identity is called in question, as his status as a Muslim makes people see him as an enemy. He loses something precious in the blasts and leaves to Sharjah, only for life to find him and surprise him.


My Review:

"The Colour Of Love" is the second book by Jagdish Joghee. After reading the book "In love and free", I had set my expectation for this book and Jagdish exceeded it. I'm falling for this author's work. The language of this book is simple but it has its unique way to keep you glued. After some chapters you'll feel strongly connected to the protagonists.

All the characters are well developed and the author didn't exaggerate any scene. I'm mesmerized not only by the narration of this book but also by all the chapters. I'm looking forward to read more from the author.

There's nothing I found not likable apart from the length of the book. I wished to read more but it ended too soon. I must say this book has touched my soul.

This is a perfect book for avid teenage fiction readers. I'll  give it 4 out of 5 stars for its wonderful binding of love, romance, sentiments, twists and turns.

About The Author:
Born and brought up in the beautiful hill town of Coonoor in Nilgiris, Jagdish Joghee has always been attracted to the hills and the forests. Growing up in the midst of serenity, Jagdish had enough inspiration to write short poems during his school days. He now lives in the city of Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu where he works for a leading global information technology services company.

His passion for writing started early during his school days. Being a closet writer, Jagdish’s writing was initially confined to journals and scrapbooks. He could not pursue his dream of becoming a journalist when he started working in the IT enabled services industry. Jagdish is an active blogger and writes on issues that have a social impact, apart from reviewing Indian movies.

IN LOVE AND FREE : Book review


In Love and Free: The tale of a woman caught between two men...

Book blurb:

Shruthi has everything going in her life with great education, incredible romance, a wonderful husband, and two adorable kids. There is plenty of laughter, joy, and love in the cosy nest that Shruthi has carefully built. 
All is well till that fateful Diwali day when passion gets the better of reason. One momentary lapse threatens to uproot the entire foundation of her beautiful life. The stakes are too high as Shruthi runs the risk of being abandoned by her husband and losing her children too. 
And there is no one to blame but herself. 
Caught in a cesspool of blackmail, ransom, revenge and remorse, Shruthi is on the brink of collapse. She can run but cannot hide.


My Review:


Initially I hadn't set my expectation in this book. when I started reading it, I though it's a same story where a love triangle will happen. And in the end the protagonist will choose one. But, to my shock this book proved me wrong and the author Jagdish Joghee left me in spell bounded.

This book is a combination of love, romance, betrayal, suspense, emotions and much more. After the first few chapters, you'll get addicted to this book. The second half of the book has intrigue plot and it's wonderfully written.

I salute the author for his marvelous work in this book. The emotions of the female protagonist, Shruthi, is well portrayed. The story has a good pace but, I felt the last few chapters should be elaborated more to clear out some confusions.

This is a page turner book, which contains elements like mystery, twists, romance, passion and betrayal. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars. This book is recommended to all.

IF 'GANDHI' WAS MADE IN 2016...



Some movies touch your heart, some leave deep impact on your soul and some, you wish to never forget. I'm an admirer of all genre movies. The former times movies have well build and realistic story line, excellent performance by actors. I would love to watch actors of this generation will replace the characters of a classic movie. With its proposition of 'Woh Zamaana Kare Deewana', Zee Classic is India's only Hindi movie channel that endeavors to recreate the magic of iconic classics and new age cinema by showcasing not just the films that shaped Indian cinema but also acquaint viewers with the creative talent who were a part of that timeless era

In order to mark the occasion of India’s 70th year of independence, Zee Classic premieres

One of the most iconic films of all times, Gandhi (1982) was produced and directed by Richard Attenborough and written by John Briley. Starring Ben Kingsley, Rohini Hattangadi, Edward Fox, Roshan Seth, among others. The story is that of an Indian lawyer who returned from racially segregated South Africa to drive the British out of his home country through successive acts of non-violent protest. The portrayal of how simplicity and the power collectivism can throw over a whole British empire bringing them to their knees.


As Zee Classic gears up to premiere ‘Gandhi', this Saturday, on 13th August at 8 PM in ‘India’s Finest Films’ and on Monday, 15th August at 9:30 AM, we wonder who would be a part of this classic if it was to be re-made in 2016!

Let's see who'll replace whom:

Director

1982 : Sir Richard Attenborough had the ability and talent to accommodate a person’s entire lifespan in a couple of hours. He did a phenomenal job right from the research to bringing alive the legacy of the father of our nation on big screen.

2016: Ashutosh Gowarikar known for his love for historical films and bringing lost eras to life with Lagaan, Jodha Akbar and Swadesh, is undoubtedly our choice to direct this film today.


Mahatma Gandhi

1982: Ben Kingsley played the role of Mahatma Gandhi in the movie.

2016: Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan is the man for the job. Known for his chameleon skills to adapt to various roles and characters combined with his attention to detail, Aamir Khan should play the role of our beloved Baapu.

Kasturba Gandhi

1982: Rohini Hoattangadi, beautifully portrayed Kasturba Gandhi, wife of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. 

2016: Kajol, one of India’s most acclaimed actresses can easily pull off the role of Baa.

General Dyer

1982: Edward Fox is etched in our minds as the dreadful and shrewd General Dyer who was hated by all for his infamous Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

2016: Tom Alter with his international looks and versatile talent can be General Dyer in ‘Gandhi’.

Jawahar Lal Nehru

1982: Roshan Seth played the role of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru to perfection.
2016: The Nawab of Bollywood, Saif Ali Khan wins hands down with his charming royal looks.

Sardar Patel


1982: Saeed Jaffery pulled off the role of The Iron Man of India, Sardar Patel flawlessly.            
2016: Paresh Rawal’s known for his diverse character roles makes him our choice to play the part.

Mohammad Ali Jinnah

1982: Alyque Padamsee brought to life an important historic figure, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, popularly known as the father of Pakistan in history

2016: Irrfan Khan, a global Indian will surely cut ice in this role.

Lord Mountbatten

1982: Peter Harlowe played the part with the sternness of a bureaucrat and an attitude on his face.
2016: The suave, Rajat Kapoor has our vote to play the last viceroy of the British Indian Empire.

Whether it was 1982 or 2016, the story of the man who brought India independence needs to be told and needs to be heard!

The Conspiracy at Meru


The Conspiracy at Meru (Vikramaditya Veergatha # 2)



VICTORY IS TEMPORARY. THE BATTLE IS ETERNAL.

Vikramaditya and his Council of Nine have fought valiantly to repel the rampaging hordes from Devaloka and Patala – but Avanti has been brought to its knees. Ujjayini lies battered its citizens are scared and morale is badly shaken. Meanwhile, the barbaric Hunas and Sakas are gathering on the horizon and cracks are emerging between the allied kingdoms of Sindhuvarta.

The only silver lining is that the deadly Halahala is safe. For now.

Bent on vengeance, Indra is already scheming to destroy Vikramaditya, while Shukracharya has a plan that can spell the doom for the Guardians of the Halahala. How long can the human army hold out against the ferocity and cunning of the devas and asuras? And will Vikramaditya’s love for his queen come in the way of his promise to Shiva?




The deadly Halahala, the all-devouring poison churned from the depths of the White Lake by the devas and asuras, was swallowed by Shiva to save the universe from extinction.
But was the Halahala truly destroyed?
A small portion still remains – a weapon powerful enough to guarantee victory to whoever possesses it. And both asuras and devas, locked in battle for supremacy, will stop at nothing to claim it.
As the forces of Devaloka and Patala, led by Indra and Shukracharya, plot to possess the Halahala, Shiva turns to mankind to guard it from their murderous clutches. It is now up to Samrat Vikramaditya and his Council of Nine to quell the supernatural hordes – and prevent the universe from tumbling into chaos!
A sweeping tale of honour and courage in the face of infinite danger, greed and deceit, The Guardians of the Halahala is a fantastical journey into a time of myth and legend.
