When those pecks won my heart
This blog is turning into such a no-brainer entertainment blog, and I thought I had more to offer to the cyberspace. I shall do interesting social experiments soon, I promise, but first My Name is Khan. I had read enough reviews, including this, to realistically lower my expectations. And it helped. I guess I was the only one laughing hysterically, in the theatre, when Shahrukh was stabbed. Also, I appreciated the fact that they were emphasizing on the correct pronunciation of “Khan”. Next up on the agenda: Make ‘em write “larka” correctly.
However, I have just seen one of my most favorite movies of recent times. Salman and Prabhudeva’s “Wanted”. OH WHATA SHAHKAAR, I proclaimed! Masala done right! Oh why did the divine Ayesha fell for that goon?! How can she fall for that horrible man, whom she loves so much! SURPRISE: He’s an undercover cop! Oh a thousand angels angels had a collective sighs of relief. A million butterflies fluttered their wings for the first time. Everything was colorful, again!
But the biggest WTF screen shot was during this scene, when the baddie girl is warning Salman’s character that he’s being targeted by the rival gang.
There was a PIA plane!
What the hell! Was that a vague reference to the links between the Mumbai and Pakistani underground (i.e. the gang is in hiding in Pakistan, and it was insinuated by adding the PIA livery on to a generic plane taking off, in which case kudos for authenticity), or was it just plain dumb luck? I couldn’t confirm if PIA flew Boeing 737-300 to Mumbai from Karachi. Perhaps I’ve got too much time on my hands.
Though found this picture when I was trying to find more on the plane. Me *hearts* Northern Areas (or is it Gilgit-Baltistan now?).
Also, this on Karakoram Highway, from Jalopnik.
