Millionaire mails

Thought for the day: What other people think of me is none of my business.

I get an average of 2-3 of these fraud emails these days, of people leaving funds in a bank, et al. But, this one really takes the cake. It comes from and goes:

“The people that they funds are being hold down here at John F. Kennedy Air Port New York. Mr. President has called for the release and we has only Three jets here for our services which he gave to us. It is very important that i hear from you as soon as possible. Besides, we are in a meeting with the NY. high officials in respect of the release of the funds. I wait for your call.

Mr. H*nch Wa*ry.

Mr. H*nch W*rry

Now they have the Pres of the US of A and three jets involved as well. Talk of fertile imagination! LOL.

Which are the movies you just cannot resist, when they’re being shown, either on TV or on DVD? I’ve a number of them on the list. In this post, let me just mention 2 which were coming simultaneously 2-3 days back.

The first one- Kal Ho Na Ho. One of the few movies that can bring the hint of a tear to my eye, besides of course, lots of laughter courtesy the comic scenes, right from Kantaben to SRK teaching Preity how to smile by pulling her cheeks and telling her that she’s forgotten to smile.Everyone’s acting is superlative, to say the least, including the kids, specially the kid who plays Jia- sensitivity to elders comments is portrayed very nicely. And, the way she adds and subtracts from her dollhouse, based on people in her family, and SRK whom she considers a family member.

The other one- Khosla Ka Ghosla. If you’ve not seen this one, you don’t know what you’re missing. Honest. It’s almost like a real-life story, where the salaried Anupam Kher buys a plot of land, it gets grabbed by land sharks who want to sell it again to him. How they get the land back without paying anything, forms the crux of the story. Particular mention of Boman Irani, who plays the land grabber. After Munnabhai, I think this is his best movie-ing performance.

Coming up soon: Cult movies I’ve not seen!

haha, you should edit it for them and send back. I have been winning millions in lotteries every other day.

I have a long list of movies that I'd love to watch again and again. HAve you watched the old movie, Dil apna aur preet parayee? It is one of my all time favourites.
