Veiwing the idiot box !!!

I am not a tv addict but being a human need to watch it sometimes... And oh my god !!! what all happens now-a-days !! have a glimpse of it here !!!
Bomb diffusion scene :
There was just 5 minutes for the bomb to explode !!! And obviously the hero has come to diffuse the bomb !!! everyone is evacuated while the hero is alone to battle the bomb which is morever showed on live tv.... Time for hero to do something...he plucks a wire ....then he goes OMG and WTF !!! Time is running !!! If he fails to diffuse the whole arena is supposed to be blown off which of course is never going to happen !!! The hero tries real hard in pretending that he doesnt know this fact....plucks more wires.... More OMG's !!! More WTF's !!! only one minute remaining. More OMG's !!! And then suddenly..... After 7 minutes the bomb is finally diffused but everything is safe !!! Nothing blows up !!! how is this possible ? The trick is that the hero need not count the 6 minutes used in between for Advertisements !!!

Cricket all the way :
These advertisements grab the maximum time in cricket too !!! One of these days you will find dhoni summoned by match refree for slow over rate !!!
Refree : Thats real bad !!! you took 1 hour extra to bowl 50 overs !!!
Dhoni : That was bcoz we Indians need to do so many advertisements in between the overs...that it gets late !!!! never mind !!!
Refree : You cant get away with this ...what must i do???
Dhoni : reduce the match to 20 overs and see if we dont win !!!
Refree : No, not that way !!! you will be fined !!!
Dhoni : (calculates in the air)okay...I will be earning enough with those advt's even if you fine upto 75% of my match fee !!!
Refree : I will give you a 3 match ban !!!
Dhoni : that means i can go for the video shoot of reliance and hero honda and amul shakti and the new one with deepika WOW !!! They were pending for weeks bcoz of cricket !!!
Refree : AARgh !!! (summons the whole team and asks them one by one)
Refree : Mr.Tendulkar !!! what makes you run for boost every time an over completes !!!
Tendulkar : I have to !!! How else do you think i got 15,000+ runs !!!
Refree : Mr.Ganguly !!! do you also want to say you got 10,000+ runs eating those britannia biscuits!!
Ganguly : No !! No !! me and tendulkar both drink boost !! we dip these biscuits in it so it gets tasty and flavory !!!
Refree : *hits his head with the willow and faints...Presently in coma*

Channel 'V' :

The title track of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom was so long that it required 2 advertisements in between to finally complete it !!! And why did Amrita Rao need to do My name i s anthony gonsalves...The hero looked a complete daffar...I would have been a better option !!!

Relief came in the form of Jodha Akbar's Jashn-e-bahaara track !!!!

Taare zameen par :

Saw the movie...liked it....And at the song "Meri maa" God....My eyes were fillin with tears....I couldnt stop them...What beautiful lyrics !!! At the parts when the boy cries in bed after all the lights are switched off and then the one in the bathroom alone and then cleans with water before comin out...God...Somewhre it hit me....I cried like that when i was young... Oh.... Life sails Indeed !!!

The Mad Girl said...

My Tendulkar Rocks!!!
But hilarious conversation, that...dipping biscuits in boost indeed.:)
Yes Thatactor in my name is... looks a complete duffer. and my sis is going gaga over jashn-e-bahara.
I watched TZP.It is a lovely movie.made my parents watch it too.I was crying but burst out laughing when I saw my irritated and frustrated frnd scratch his head wildly seeing us all in tears[he hates emotional scenes]. So TZP was a mixture of tears and laughter for me.
And my favourite song is mera jahan. Maa is beautiful as well. awesome lyrics!
