Be the Change!

When I say be the change, I mean, push yourself into the mainstream. Don't wait for some unknown entity, to come and change the system. You alone and many others like you can change it. This change could be brought about by putting yourself into active politics or by doing any other work related to social activity, or social welfare for the people at large. People today blame the politics of the country for the mess we are in today. True to some extent, but it is, we the people who have allowed this rot to set in. Had we woken up in time, and paid attention to the manner in which the political class was running the country maybe the damage could have been stopped in time, or minimized to some extent. Having said that, I feel all is not lost yet. The youth of this country, both men and women, boys and girls, have to come forward to lend support for the development of our country. This has to be now done on a war footing, because already too much time has been lost and too much wealth having been destroyed and plundered, by those who we thought would lead by example. The youth should now join active politics in whatever forum they want, whatever capacity and whichever party they feel, will bring about the change. Just check the credentials of the party before joining it, so that you're not disappointed later on. Here, I urge the women of this country to take the lead in this monumental task. The effort of the government in providing 33% reservation for women in Parliament should be applauded because this will further the cause.Take responsibility for whatever post you are offered,in whichever political party you join! Don't leave it to recognized  leaders to take you out of this mess. They also have a job to do,and need the support of all people to build a young and vibrant India all over again.! Make sure you follow one golden rule, never support corruption. Take politics as another job, like the engineer takes up his job, the financial consultant takes up his job, or the banker would conduct his job in a bank. The one thing common in all these jobs is that the person is accountable for his role and would get a fixed salary at the end of his tenure. Politics should also be treated in the same manner. After all it is simply a job which you are performing for a political party and for the country at large. The day people stop going after politics to gather unaccounted money at the cost of development work being stalled, or the money meant for various government projects being diverted into the pockets of either bureaucrats as well as the political class is stopped completely, then only can we see a change in the blossoming of this wonderful country of ours. I feel politics has been degenerated by the vile acts of the political class put together. This has to end. Accountability and honesty has to prevail in politics as well. We can't have the political class destroying and plundering our country at will. That is not to say, that all politicos are corrupt or dishonest, but if the majority out numbers the honest minority then we have to sit up and take notice. So my appeal to the youth at large would be,enough of sitting back and watching from the armchair. Stand up and take charge and do your rightful duties and resume your place in the politics of this country.
                                               It's a long road to prosperity but u can do it
Another point here, because we can't expect everyone to be joining politics. So don't despair, for those who can't come into active politics, they can help in the development of the country by being responsible wherever they are, in whatever position they are. Learn to do your job honestly and with responsibility, shun all kinds of corruption, and don't be afraid to speak out your mind. Try and help out people in distress in your workplace, and near your home, or generally on the road. Be in touch with NGO's who you think are doing genuine work and spread their message across. Report corruption and inefficiency wherever you see it and come across it. Take the help of  lawyers, editors, authors, people in authority or just about anybody,whom you think can further your cause, and help in eliminating corruption. Suffering injustice is as good as perpetuating it! So if you see some evil being committed and give it a pass, on the premise that somebody else will attend to it than you are actually not listening to your inner voice. I was in fact happy to see a lot of youth and other people come out and support Anna in his fight for corruption, which shows that the people are ready to fight for their rights and made this country a better place to live in. But I wish it wouldn't stop at only demanding the presentation of a Lokpal bill. That will come in due course, but the people should rise up to the occasion and try and stop corruption at any and every level. The bureaucracy as well as the politicos need to understand that tolerance level limits have been breached and corruption and inefficiency should not and will not be tolerated at any extent. The bribe taker has to be educated and not to indulge in bribe taking. He should feel happy and satisfied in whatever he is earning as his rightful salary. If the bribe taker stops taking bribe, than the bribe giver will automatically stop giving the bribe.! We can't wait for ever for this change to take place. Be the change yourself  and then you'll see everyone changing around you. So here's hoping for a better India if all of you work in right earnest. With these thoughts I sign off, with the promise that I will post again soon as I get a response from you! If my post manages to convert even 10 people I would feel rewarded.! Cheers! And don't let me down!

A star is born........... Vijay Dinanath Chauhan alias Hrithik Roshan!

I feel I should start this review of Agneepath by paying tribute to Karan Johar! You have proved that you're the worthy son of a worthy father! The way the movie takes off from the opening frame itself, meandering its way and touching the lives of the numerous characters around which this Magnum Opus is built up, is a tribute to the genius of the directorial quality of Karan Malhotra! Never did I feel a moment of disconnect with the movie, the plot was so well woven, and the movie moves at a brisk pace, which conforms with the story requirement as well as the characters sought to be presented.

You have to hand it over to Karan, for presenting the characters that he did. Each character whether it is the intense and smoldering Vijay, the lovely and dimunitive Kali, the big and burly Kanchaa, or the cunning and  menacing Rauf Lala were all brilliantly cast and played their part to the hilt! Mind you, the casting done by the director is in keeping with the story narrative which he has in mind, and the roles played by each character is absolutely brilliant. The beginning story line where the story takes off in Mandwa and then from a regular Chawl in aamchi Mumbai, it depicts the bond which is prevalent among the community which in a sense represents the bonhomie of the common man, that in spite of day-to-day problems they are prepared to live life as it comes and like a well knit family takes life head on. The character of Kancha, played by Sanjay Dutt is built up right from the first frame, and the violence is justifiable because the character of Kancha demanded that. An image had to be built up in the minds of the people that Kancha was evil personified, remorseless and could go to any extent to achieve his goal, killing was like second habit to him. The manner in which he plots Master Dinanath's ultimate end is testimony to his evil character. To add more venom to his character, the scene in which he drags Master Dinanath all the way up to the Bargad tree where he is finally hung in front of the blood thirsty crowd is synonymous of Satan in full flow. The look given to Kancha is another feather in the cap of the director who succeeds in giving such a menacing look to the character which Sanjay Dutt has played!

After watching the gruesome murder of his father, enter Vijay Chauhan, played by Hrithik Roshan, and by jove what a character he's played! I think Hrithik  in this movie has surpassed himself, and it would be doing injustice to him if I didn't mention that this is probably the best role he has played so far in his career! I'm sure Amitabh Bachchan will agree with this that Hrithik has equaled if not surpassed him in the role of  Vijay Dinanath Chauhan!  Right from the word go, Vijay has completely submerged himself into the character, and has portrayed the agony of a man who is burning inside with only one passion, that is, to avenge the murder of his father at the hands of Kancha! The gradual blossoming of the man towards his ultimate destiny of finally killing Kancha is portrayed so naturally and brilliantly by Hrithik that even his worst critics will stand up and applaud! I can't think of any other actor who could have done so much justice to this role, except of course the master,Amitabh himself.! I won't be wrong in saying that today a star is born, and Hrithik has proved that he has the maturity of a brilliant actor who has the entire range and gamut of emotions to portray, and this role will probably go down as his best so far, and I'm sure Hrithik feels that way.! The character of Kali, played by the delightful Priyanka Chopra who looks as lovely and honest as ever in the role of a  supportive woman who sticks by her man through thick and thin! The Marathi tinge to the character has given it a more delightful look and will be remembered for the ease with which Priyanka handled this role. There could be two opinions on the way her end was handled, maybe she didn't need to die, in the manner she did, but then the other point of view would be that her gruesome death was necessary, to propel the fire already burning in Vijay to explode and make him take off towards the climax of the entire plot! The role played by actor Rishi Kapoor is also brilliant and he has employed all his acting skills, and shown  that once an actor, always an actor! All in all a very beautiful and sensitive film, violent at times but then the character demanded that.! I have seen Amitabh's earlier films, and so now I know how he was built up into a raging superstar! This movie could be a regular potboiler of Amitabh playing in front of you.! The times have slightly changed, so people expect a more sleek and the urban kind of a movie. but this is no ordinary movie, I feel this is an epic, a Magnum Opus and should not be missed by anybody who loves watching intense performances and brilliant direction! I would be failing in my duty if I do not mention the scintillating dance performance of Katrina Kaif! A short delightful dance performance but she stood out on her own, the dance moves were totally ethnic, erotic and truly rocking. A delightful performance all in all with that cute smile of hers, sure set the pace rolling for the film.! The music is haunting and the songs are already a rage, are very popular and playing all over the country.

I liked the film, and recommend it to every cinema goer who would like to see magnificent performances, the kind you don't get to see in movies being released today! You have to be prepared for the senseless violence but! Basically I'am a die hard romantic, so for me it was quite a surprise that violent movies with a good star cast and excellent performances are palpable! See the movie and let me know whether you agree with what I said! Happy watching and I look forward to your comments. Another first, Karan is venturing out with newer and better talent than SRK all the time in tow!  Cheers!
