A Time To Give Back

I received a most amazing New Year gift on the last day of year 2015. Guess what? A surprise nomination for an award by dear @mescalime (Psychochromatic Inception). The best part was that she very graciously permitted me to choose between 3 different awards she had received herself, namely : Sunshine Blogger Award, Liebster Award and The Word Magician Award. I have accepted the Sunshine Blogger Award as I can identify with it. I truly believe that a blog should be inspirational and spread some joy!

As per the ‘general rules’ of awards, I shall nominate 7 more bloggers for this award whose posts I enjoy reading. Mind you this is a tough task as each and every blog is fabulous in its own way.

My nominees:

  1. Dr. Rohit Reddy
  2.  xoxolovedee
  3. Upen Reddy
  4. alifemoment  
  5. poetreecreations        
  6. Arun
  7. tenny

Many thanks to the whole blogging community and wish you all a very happy and fulfilling new year 2016!


Happy New Year- A film Review !

Some of my facebook friends living in the U.S. have requested me for a film review.I recently saw the latest Bollywood Hindi film titled Happy new year and I am  going to review it.The film was a Diwali release in India and boasts of an impressive star cast including ‘King Khan’ Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone,Abhishek Bachchan, Anupam Kher,Boman Irani,Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood and new boy, Vivaan Shah.The average rating given by most critics to this movie is 2.5 stars. As I was free on Sunday and in any case love going to the movies , we decided to watch it nevertheless without having many expectations! As it is, whenever we go to watch these typical masala potboilers we laugh that we are leaving our brains at home and simply going out for a good time without being too critical.

The first thirty minutes or so of the film seem to drag but finally it does become gripping and makes the viewer engrossed in the goings on, in spite of being yet another movie based on a diamond robbery. It genuinely made us laugh in so many scenes and was quite entertaining. Deepika looks ravishing in the film and adds to the necessary glamour quotient. Abhishek Bachchan in his double role impresses.The film is shot on a grand scale and the second half is mostly picturised in Dubai. I am not going to reveal the story as it would be a spoiler if you actually decide to see the film. Directed by Farah Khan, according to Hindustan times news the film has earned a record Rs.44.97 crore on the opening day of its release itself and is soon on its way to become a big blockbuster.

I would give the movie 3 stars out of 5. Go ahead watch it and have a good time ! Watch the movie trailer.
