Man Push Cart

You have been fed all your life about better standards of living in US by Bollywood romantics and Hollywood thrillers but there comes along a movie which makes you wonder if life in US is as easy as portrayed to us while growing up.

Man Push Cart is an unforgettable portrait of a Pakistani street vendor trying to keep his soul alive on the streets of New York.
As the story unfolds you realize that Ahmed (the push cart vendor) was once a huge pop star in Pakistan and you immediately feel that in the end he will find his zeal and go back to doing what is does best....singing. But then this story is based on reality and thank goodness it wasn't a Bollywood movie.
Waiting forward to see more movies of this writer-director, Ramin Bahrani.
A must watch!!!!!!
Playing for Pizza by John Grisham

This was a really short read and a complete non-thriller or we can say non-Grisham kind of book. The plot revolves around an NFL player Rick Dockery who has a disastrous career and made history by making his team loose a match that they had already won. To escape all the death threats and change of scene he moves to Italy to be a part of Italian version of NFL and play for a team named Panthers until a better offer comes along.

This story is like any sports movie you would have seen but a well written one. There is a happy ending to this book for sure......and then there is a lot of gyan on Italian food, cities and wine.

One thing is for sure, this book will make an amazing movie......

Romancing with Life -- By Dev Anand

"My life has been an open book. I have written honestly about what has stood out in the forefront of my memory."

Dev Anand writes about his 62 years of life, he has written this book with passion even when he is writing about his failures, he does believe that he is the greatest thing to have happened to Indian Cinema when he advocates his flop movies like "Awwal number, Gangster, Mr Prime Minister, Censor", he actually calls Awwal Number ahead of time as Aamir's Lagaan got nominated for Oscars was made with the same cricket theme and soon after it's release Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated by LTTE which highlighted terrorism in the country.
Dev Anand got almost all women he eyed except Suraiya, the only one he came close to loving. His Mills and Boon kind of soft porn writing has masala for all his fans who want to relive his romantic liaisons they have read about all there lives...and also the one's they haven't like loosing his virginity with a middle aged women in an A/C compartment of a train "She asked me to come and I came" and how Zeenat Aman left his production house and went to Raj Kapoor (who eventually made her a bigger star with Satyam Shivam Sundaram)

This book priced @ Rs 695/- is a bit expensive unless you are a big fan but it's definitely a good read, truth about Autobiographies being you have to accept whatever author has written, read In the Line of Fire: A Memoir by Pervez Musharraf to understand how far can a man go away from truth...

PS: I was fortunate enough to get an Autographed copy of Dev Anand's book. I hope Mr. Anand is able to give us another magical movie experience that reminds us of his genius before fading into oblivion!!!!!!

Your Brain is Purple

Of all the brain types, yours is the most idealistic.
You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense.
Your thoughts are creative, inventive, and without boundaries.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking of fictional people and places - or a very different life for yourself.
-ve reviews of Fountainhead.....i will still give it *****
