Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

It's 5.30 am now. I just finished watching Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. I found it so meaningful. Its about two marriages. One, an arranged and loveless marriage and the other a marriage that failed because of lack of communication. The movie contained elements ranging from laughter, suspense, sadness,happiness to anger and disappointment. It's really fantastic.

Dev(Shah Rukh) must be stupid. With a wife as beautiful as Rhea(Preity Zinta), how can he not love her? How can he not talk to her? If i were him, i would love her with all my heart. Hold her and talk to her every second, every minute, every hour of the day. How could he cheat on her? Oh so sad.

Ok enough comments bout the plot. Now i want to mention the other characters in the movie. Maya (Rani Mukherjee) is the woman that Dev had an affair with. Maya is the wife of Rishi(Abhishek Bachchan). I absolutely loved her acting in this movie. She played her character so well. Though many would love to hate her, but remember she's just doing her job. And oh her voice. Some find it irritating, but i loved it. hehe. Abhishek's acting not bad, i think he did quite a good job. I was a bit disappointed with Shah Rukh's acting. Maybe it's the character. I don't know. I reserve my judgment. Amitabh Bachchan who played the part of Rishi's father, Samarjit did very well. That's to be expected from the revered and respected Amitabh. As for Preity, she did quite well too. She's absolutely gorgeous in movie. However, in some shots her high cheekbones can be quite irritating but she's still very pretty for sure.

That's all for now. Gotta sleep. Next movie is Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. i can't wait to watch Kajol. There's Kareena Kapoor as well. Wheew.


Woooohooo...had not had so much fun in a long long time already. I never regret going to game today. Pwning asses from the start, no warm up needed, it's been a long time coming man..the pent up aggression.

Was top fraggin for sometime when suddenly at the bottom left corner of the screen i saw "Susu has joined the game". I thought, i'm on a hot streak, doesn't matter 1 lah. In a blink of an eye, an ominous warning sign appeared. I was sniped by susu. Then the hot streak became a cold dying streak. I was like KNN WTF !!!

I have to admit, susu alwiz pwn my ass. no argument bout that, doesn't matter if i'm a hot streak or not. when he's playing, he pours cold water onto ppl's hot streaks. he's still the no1 in msia.
