All about living in this crazy, wonderful city called Bombay

October 02, 2003

Thinking of watching Jogger's Park? Here are some things that you should keep in mind:

1. Do not watch it in the late night show, unless you are an insomniac desperate for a cure. In that case, it is likely to work better than the strongest sedative!

2. Watch it only till the interval if you want to go away with memories of a great movie. This movie has a beautiful concept, and would have been memorably brilliant if only it had ended at the interval. I think the problem is that while Bollywood has learnt to embrace serious and meaningful themes, most of the producers and directors still lack the maturity to escape the two-and-a-half-hour masala movie concept!

3. Get the CD -- the songs are brilliant! Especially Adnan Sami's soulful Ishq hota nahin sabhi ke liye....

4. If you are a guy, ignore all the above, 'coz you are most probably going to be too busy getting an eyeful of Perizaad to be much bothered by anything else anyway!
