Today, India mourns as we remember the victims of the Mumbai terrorist attack on 26.11.2008.

I can still remember, as a kid, when I started learning the rules of the game called cricket, I saw a young, lean, kid moving around with the likes of Kapil Dev on his tour to Pakistan.

Let me tell you the story before I get back to ripping it apart. It revolves around two childhood friends, Arjun (Ajay Devgan) and Manu (Salman Khan), living somewhere in the fields of Punjab. Music runs in both their families, but is cherished only in Manu’s, who couldn’t care less about it. Arjun, on the other hand, has the stereotypical Bollywood dreams of becoming…

A mare that couldn’t give birth was of no use to the owner, and there was no need for her to live any longer but, of course, she didn’t know the end yet….
The stallion moved on with his new life. He found new friends, on another lush green meadow. He was there until the second summer of life. Then, just as quickly as it had begun, youth ended.

Inglourious Basterds – A Review!

Inglourious Basterds is just one of the masterpieces from Quentin Tarantino (and after this movie you can expect many more). With this movie, however, he has raised the bar even for himself.
