"Chandni, O Meri Chandni".

Hello friends. Had an alright day. We did not win the Chili cooking competition. I liked our chili. It tasted really good. Vijay Mallya must be in bad shape these days after hearing that one of his  Kingfisher Airlines employee's wife, committed suicide. Reason? Mallya did not pay the employee's salary for 6 month. Gosh! Sell your yatch, beach house, horses etc., Mr. Mallya. It's not always about you.  Dimple Kapadia is another one. Heard she just moved into Aashirwad. Where was she all those years when Kaka was still alive? Hmmm. Anyway, the face off between PC and Kareena continues. I just read PC's statement - "I don't  just want to be a heroine, I want to be a female actor." He, he. Good one PC! Rekha is maha thrilled ever since Jaya has decided to celebrate Big B's b'day on Oct. 10th. This also happens to be Madam Re's B'day. Jaya is planning a big party as Amitabh is turning the big 70 and she is having a Pooja at their home on his actual B'day on Oct. 11th. Chalo, Rekha gets her share of happiness too.

Why India not The India? Why America? The United States of America? This is Epic!

I like the song Badlaa nazara yun yun yun, Saara ka saara new new new.

Times of India gave it 3 and a half stars. The TOI reviewer ended his article saying the following: "Request you to make place next to you, Raj Kumar Hirani; Gauri Shinde has taken a bow in mainstream Bollywood." Imagine that! Gauri Shinde is successful in giving this film a mass appeal.

Cinema is rapidly changing and one can connect with viewers across the globe even without making the usual mainstream Hindi movie. English Vinglish proves it!" writes Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama. " - This is the critics verdict.

If you watch only two films every year make sure you see "English Vinglish" twice! said another reporter.

After a 15 year hiatus and still remembered fondly for her powerful performance in Chandni opposite Rishi Kapoor, the well maintained, gorgeous looking, Sridevi is back with a bang! Everybody and their father attended the premier of English Vinglish today. The whole film fraternity showed up to cheer Sri, while her huband Boney Kapoor and their 2 daughters, stood tall next to her, their faces, beaming with pride. Amitabh and Jaya were there too. Looks like Ladoo wins over Barfi.  I believe Amitabh's Cameo in the movie is the only thing that does not work for the movie. This year the competition for best actress female will be so tight. It will be interesting to watch. Be it, Mr. India, Chaalbaaz, Nagina, Lamhe or the more recent Judaai, it is Sri who stood out with her scintillating performances and graceful dancing. Her beautiful, big, wide eyes emoted a whole lot, so much so, that she made tears look like pearls when they fell down her soft, white cheeks. Clearly, she was my hero. She ruled the late 80s and early 90s. The time period when I had an affair with Hindi cinema. How can I miss this movie? There is no way. She is a source of inspiration to most women. She came back with a woman oriented role and won accolades. Good going! For once the Sallu's, the Aamir's and SRK's can rest for some time. Tonight, I am leaving all of you, with a song from my favorite Sridevi movie, Chandni. In my opinion, she looked her best in this movie. Even today, she can give all the young heroines a run for their money. I love all the songs from the movie Chandni. For the sake of this post I will pick "Lagi aaj sawan ki phir woh gadi hai" Will be dreaming about Sri tonight. How about you?
