My second Bharathanatyam performance

Belated happy Ugadi friends. I had a fantastic weekend. Attended a Ugadi function hosted buy the DC Metro area Konkanis. My friend Anu and I performed a Bharathanatyam dance for the event. (See pics. below).  It went pretty well for sometime, till, in the end I slipped and fell. Luckily, it was not that noticeable as I quickly recovered and finished the dance. We also did a 5 minute Konkani Shayari which was well received by the audience. We got a few laughs. The program was recorded. I haven't gotten my hands on the videos yet. Once I get it, I will post them here. Stayed tuned.

I was on a high after my performance, that I decided to go for the movie Agent Vinod today, with my friend Anu. Had seen and heard so much about the movie on different media. Plus, I like Kareena a lot and think she is a diva in the true sense. I love the way she carries herself. This was the first time she was dancing a Mujra number. I had gotten addicted to the song "dil mere muft ka". So, it looked like it had all the right ingredients for a blockbuster. With great expectations Anu and I went to the theater. We reached 10 minutes late. The movie was so bad that we wished we had never reached. he he. Not sure what Saif Ali was thinking when he decided to produce this movie. I really don't see why we in India want to move away from our traditional masala movies. It is one thing to experiment, but aping the west 100% is not "being different" in my opinion. All I saw, was a wanna be James Bond in Saif as an actor and Kareena, oh well, she was there. There are so many locations, characters and twists that you are guaranteed to get confused. Anu, my intelligent friend, kept me awake by making jokes about situations and updating me on the link between the different characters (and I thought I had high tolerance for Hindi movies). Through most of the movie, they showed Saif to be a strong man. Towards the end, he shows some soft corner towards Kareena. Now for the spoiler alert - Kareena becomes bhagwaan ko pyaari , Saif gets the password to the bomb, saves Delhi and becomes a hero. (now, I did enjoy the visuals from Delhi as I had recently visited the city. They showed Palika Bazar, Connaught place and Rashtrapathi Bhavan.). Now normally, a person would be sad with the demise of a loved one. In this movie Saif  is shown to move on to another "hot" woman instantly. And it makes for a happy ending? What is the message here Mr. Sriram Raghavan? (the director of the movie). All in all a forgetful experience. The only thing that I can remember is a dialogue that Saif says. As he is shoving spaghetti down his throat  he says - Kuch paane ke liye kuch khaana padta hai. But nothing stops the team of this movie from having a success bash. Anything to be in the spotlight. This goes to show that money can buy anything, even a hit! And oh, what is up with the name of the movie, Agent Vinod? They go on to make a sleek action movie a name it Agent Vinod? What next Agent Ramu Kaka? LOL
