StAte of UPTU …

The state of UPTU in the month of AUG-SEP 2009 .

UPTU is really going down the wells. I dont know why but the 1st year counselling had been rescheduled and then again re-rescheduled. Its been reported now that the 1st year will finally flood the colleges from second week of SEPTEMBER… UPTU turning on to be a late lateef ..

There is another almost true and soon realty fact that UPTU is gonna split into two halves from 2years now. One for east UP the univesity will be GautamBudh Technical University the other for Western UP will be Maha Maya University..

With MAYAWATI possesiveness over UP and ever growing thirst for put her name MAHA MAYA on any damn upcoming project in any part of UP how can a name on a university be missed.

In NOIDA and GREATER NOIDA there are two flyovers named MAHAMAYA FLYOVER. There a government school called MAHAMAYA INTER COLLEGE on NOIDA-GreaterNOIDA expresswaya …

I wonder if soon there will be any stone which doesnot have MAHAMAYA written on it… LOL..

Well i feel bad for those students who will get a degree as MAHAMAYA TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY….

Kaminey: Shahid Kapoor the blooming KIDDO

Hey, I watched Kaminey first day first show in CentreStageMall NOIDA… Its a gud movie with great music and brilliance shown by SHAHID KAPOOR…

Kaminey Shahid Kapoor runnng between Horses

Kaminey 2009- Shahid Kapoor running among horses

This word “brilliance” is really happy to be paired with a new name .. LOL .. So Kaminey the movie will seriously catapult the stardom of SHAHID.. The movie involves the double role of Shahid.. as Charlie and Guddu well you must be knowing that… ofcourse.. but its for the people who live in some isolation from television..

There are actually two reasons to watch Kaminey in a THEATER one of course is SHAHID kapoor.. the other one being “DHAN TE NAN” yes the awesome path breaking song has the power of elevating the heart beats of infinite people no wonder how many times one listen to this number…..

Having said that, I wish to add that KAMINEY is not the usual masala film. Sure, it’s a well-made film, but there’s no spoon feeding here. One has to be attentive, very attentive to grasp the goings-on and also the twists in the tale. It’s not one of those lock-your-brains-at-home types, for sure. And that might not be too appealing a thought for those who swear by candyfloss or meaningless ha-ha-thons.
To cut it short, KAMINEY is a film with an attitude. Like it or leave it, but you’d never be able to ignore it. Word from the wise: Go for this hatke experience!

KAMINEY is about a pair of twin brothers, Charlie and Guddu [Shahid Kapoor]. Charlie lisps, while Guddu stammers. They are as different as chalk and cheese. And they can’t stand the sight of each other. Till one fateful rainy night, their lives cross.

Charlie gets mixed up in a deathly get-rich-quick scheme, while Guddu realizes that the love of his life, Sweety [Priyanka Chopra], has unwittingly put a price on his head. The brothers are sucked into a world of drugs, guns and money. Their lives collide head on with the lives of gangsters, rebel soldiers, rogue politicians and crooked cops.

The brothers have to run to protect themselves, their dreams, their love. And most importantly, realize that all they have is each other.

It takes time to get used to the world Vishal Bhardwaj wants us to enter. The characters, the relationships, the lingo, the tone and the setting… frankly, you don’t take to KAMINEY instantly. But twenty minutes into the film and things start falling in place. From thereon, you’re drawn into a different world completely.
The interval point raises the bar and also the expectations. The story takes a dramatic turn at this juncture, but minutes before that, ‘Dhan Te Nan’ makes the proceedings exhilarating and stimulating.

Right from the sequence after the interval to the finale, Vishal Bhardwaj peels off layer after layer, which erupts like a volcano towards the end. The end is long drawn and with so many characters in the film, it only takes time to give a culmination to each of those characters. And that gets tedious. The violent end might not find universal acceptance. Vishal Bhardwaj proves that he’s a master storyteller. KAMINEY is a damn difficult film to conceptualize and execute and Vishal does it with gusto. Besides the soundtrack ['Dhan Te Nan'], the effectual background score only enhances the impact. The dialogues, also penned by Vishal, are super. At places, clapworthy. Tassaduq Hussain’s cinematography is top notch.

Shahid takes a really big leap with KAMINEY. Note how he handles the two characters, Guddu and Charlie, brilliantly. This film is a step to superstardom and also which will open new doors and vistas for him as an actor. Priyanka is first-rate. She’s so much in sync with her character. Also, she gets the Maharashtrian accent perfect. Amole Gupte is outstanding. An incredible actor! Tenzing Nima and Chandan Roy Sanyal leave a solid impression. Shiv Subrahmanyam and Hrishikesh Joshi are perfect.

On the whole, KAMINEY lives up to the hype associated with it. The film has three stars – Vishal Bhardwaj [a name that's immensely respected by moviegoers], Shahid Kapoor and ‘Dhan Te Nan’ – and this combo as also the crooked characters and a genuinely hatke subject should guarantee ample footfalls in cineplexes even after its initial weekend. The weekend business should be huge due to the holidays all through the weekend: Friday [Janmashtami], Saturday [Independence Day] and Sunday. Of course, the business is bound to be affected in parts of Mumbai territory due to Swine Flu, but the film should take off in a big way when theatres re-open.
