The weekend that was not [What I had thought!]

Filed under: Fun!,Life,T20 — Teal @ 10:20 pm

This weekend has gone by in a pretty fun way, to the extent that I am all charged up to tackle the week ahead! [Yeah imagine these words, that too from ME!] Went for the IPL match between Chennai Super Kings and the Kolkata Knightriders. Needless to say, the Super Kings prevailed and well, the bongs went back defeated! 8)

This was the first time I had ever watched a cricket match in a stadium, it was an AWESOME Experience. I remember watching the mexican wave on TV, yesterday I was actually a part of it!! 😀 The chants of ‘Dhoni! Dhoni!’ and ‘Hayden! Hayden!’ filled and echoes through the stadium. The cheerleaders of the super kings were in full enthusiasm and dancing away to glory, whereas the firang cheerleaders from the Knight Riders were just sitting around! Shahrukh, you might want to re-recruit a cheer leading squad!


The prematch performance was very very very below average. I honestly wonder why people make a big deal out of mirchi suchi! She SUCKS live! I was actually waiting for those people to stop singing! [Or is braying, the right term?] Went for a movie with Ma, the most predicatable one being ‘U me aur hum’. It is kind of obvious that Ajay Devgan has tried a ‘Taare Zameen Par’ style movie with Alzheimer’s disease. It is all senti, and if you are taking you mom along, I recommend a box of tissues to be taken along. The songs in the movie are pretty good. My favorite is ‘Paheli jaisa sayyan’ . But a good effort. Sadly the age shows on both their faces. It really does! And plus, they have gone overboard in including their love for anything spanish, including a lot of time focussed on salsa, and also ‘Jee le’ having a strong latin-y sound.

But it is a better than average flick, if you can ignore the fake graphics, in the movie 😛



  1. Weird no, how the essence of a ‘hit’ flick has to be molested to death by copycat directors, until it’s pouring out of the public’s ears. Ewck!

  2. You watch IPL too? All my friends here have been raving about it for a while now……..I think “Knight Riders” is a corny plagiarized name for a cricket team. Its not like the old days, when cricket was fun to watch, cos it was about the game itself, and not about the hoopla around it! Of course, I used to watch only the West Indian matches! 🙂 Those were the days!

  4. me had very bad experience in that match.I would prefer watching in front of TV rather than the stadium 🙂

    Blink you miss the how the batsman got out.No replays in the screen that was visible from my stand.That didnt even work for half the time.When it worked it showed wrong scores.

    Cricket on TV is good.Inspite of Ravi shastri and Arun Lal.We get to see the Hawkeye and replays 🙂

  6. ummm…I’m really sad KR lost! I was hoping ot see them win and now I actually believe That SRK is their one and only “lucky mascot” LOL!
    BTW, I think U, Me or Hum is a copy of some novel called Notebook…..

  7. Black was better than U Me Aur Hum.
    Same theme. Different treatment.

  8. @ Meghna:
    IPL is all about the unnecessary hype and hoopla surrounding cricket, I watched it once to see what it was all about! And regd the notebook thing, not too sure.

    @ Narain:
    Black was a masterpiece,
    No comparisons, please 🙂
    It was not the same theme, ‘Black’ dealt with physical disabilities whereas ‘U,me aur hum’ deals with Alzheimer’s.

  9. By theme, I meant the basic concept.
    Anyway, as you said, no comparisons.
