Movie Review

Image
Well this post is not about a review for a movie.. This post is all about how in our family, we used to judge whether a movie would be a good one or not.


The judge for that is our dad and No its not based on his opinion or view on the movie. Its based on when he falls asleep during the movie. :p


The last movie I saw with my dad was Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara, which by the way is a brilliant kick ass movie. I was watching it on TV today and thought of jotting this post..





For those of you, who have read this post of mine would know that my dad could fall asleep in a blink of an eye..


My dad has never seen a movie fully at one ago.. 


I remember going for Tashan with Dad and my siblings. My dad fell asleep during the opening credits itself and my sis was like, 'Let's just leave now, the movie is gona be terrible.. Papa's already fallen asleep...' I was like, 'The movie couldn't be that bad. Let's just sit through it...' Boy!! Was I so wrong!! That movie was the m…

The Ideal App for the Idle Husband

I was reading Scott Adam’s blog  post about a Better Husband App which is hilarious

I decided to share this post with PR and a bunch of my friends.

This is how our email conversation goes...
PR:I know I should logically be offended by this but I do think the idea is a good one... Hear me out... Granted most guys (myself included) would not take advice from a person and would never get a self-help book; However we would gladly install the 'better husband app' simply because its an app and installing apps is cool (personally installed hundreds over the years) ...

Now that we have established the market potential lets look at some of the possible functionality ... The auto prefix text to sms option mentioned below is a good start however this only scratches the surface ... The app could randomly select tasks (from a pre-programmed list) for the 'husband (a.k.a victim)' to do such as laundry; grocery shopping; take wife out shopping etc.

ME: Did you know that Adidas bought Reebok?
PR: I thought it was the other way around. Isnt Reebok bigger compared to Adidas?
ME: Nope. Can’t believe they didnt take my consentment in the takeover.
PR: What is consentment? There is consent and then there is consignment. What are you talking about?
ME: I’m talking about consenment. you know to take permission from a person for e.g. me.
PR: There is no such word as consenment.
ME: There is
PR: is not
ME: :P
PR: Thank god you have Mal (my mother tongue) to fall back on when English fails you.
ME: Uh-Huh!! :(
PR: So what is the word in Mal for Consentment?
ME: in deep thought
PR: atleast tell me what is permission in mal?
ME: It is at the tip of my tongue. :D
PR: FAIL!! EPIC FAIL!!
ME: ok smartass. How many languages do you know other than English?
PR: Well I only know English and know it well, unlike some people who know bits and pieces of  some languages
ME: :(

So after the above conversation, I have decided to proclaim to the world, the word I have inven…
