Isn't is amazing how life keeps getting busier and busier, particularly when you are in the 20s and the 30s. Every minute done something mundane such as breathing deeply, browsing the sky, watching the sun rise or set, admiring the rainbow is accompanied by a sense of guilt, of having wasted the minute which could have been utilized doing something that has a better ROI. However it surprises me how watching the TV, chatting online/offline, blogging etc are not considered mundane. Modern life!(sigh).


The Rising on ID15

“What a waste!” is the feeling one gets after watching the Aamir Khar starrer that was released on the week coinciding with our 57th Independence Day. The fact that it wastes the supreme talents of actors like Aamir and Rani notwithstanding, there were a few other wastes that didn’t fail to get noticed. For example, 3 hours of my weekend time, 500 million rupees of the producer (rumor!), 60 bucks of mine for the ticket and more.

The film does have its moments like the scene (clich├ęd as it may be) where Mangal Pandey stands up alone against a whole regiment of the Queen’s army and some hard-hitting, whistle-seeking dialogues. But otherwise the film disappoints. One can see the dilemma faced by the makers - to be a great epic or a typical box office guaranteeing bollywood film. A mixture of both elements results in a kitsch that makes the intestines churn for those seeking to experience the former. Get a DVD (once it comes out) and watch it on the tube is my recommendation.
