AAP at the helm

Finally a good thing is happening. Arvind Kejriwal will be sworn in as the Chief Minister of Delhi on Saturday. This event is going to make lots of changes. What meaning this development has?
This goes on to prove a point that if a bunch of clean figured person come together and decide they want to change the system, and they take proper steps, the outcome is surely positive. With in a span of 2-3 years, a person rise from an unknown personality directly to the Chief Minister position, is a miracle that doesn't take place every day. This reminds me of  the movie "Nayak" of Anil Kapoor where he becomes the CM of a state just for one day. Of course such events of bringing an unknown personality to limelight do have happened earlier like in case of our PMs ChandraShekhar, I.S Gujral, Devegowda etc. Most of the time these positions were governed by none other than Congress party. Those ministers pretty much just filled the PM position. Congress kept all the chords in their hands and when they wanted they cut it loose. 
Even now, AAP party is making government with the backing of Congress. But the difference is this time Congress can not control it. AAP will work in its way and there won't be much in the hands of Congress.  It will try to spend some time because they know this is not a good time for Congress. But I do expect that this Government probably won't see year 2015. With in a period of 1 year, this government will go down the drain and we may expect elections soon.
Now, its AAP's duty to keep this in mind and make the best use of available time. Do some real work so that people will believe that there is a better way of doing  politics. They should keep in mind that they just have few months to prove themselves. 
Congress on the other hand has fall prey to its own tactics. I wonder why they needed to give support to AAP. By doing this, they are digging their grave. On one side now they can not withdraw their support with out any strong reason. At least for some time. In the mean time, AAP will go on showing how bad governance was given by Congress. No wonder the party workers are unhappy with their core committee's decision of giving support and we saw some violent attack on their party head quarter itself by their own workers. Congress seem to have lost its sense wondering  which way to go to make a better situation themselves. As said, pretty sure they will withdraw support in few months and try for new elections. But this time it may not work in their favor. 
Year 2014 is bringing lots of interesting changes along with it. If not for other reasons, changing politics in India is surely a reason to welcome new year

Dhoom 3: Should you go for it?

The most awaited movie of the year is here now.
Dhoom-3 released on  20th of December.
People had lots of expectations from this movie for many reasons.
Dhoom series is one of the first, to begin the trend of successful series. It is more famous because of the villain characters rather than the hero Abhishek Bachhan. While John Abraham set the foundations in the first movie, Hrithik Roshan made it large in the second movie of the series. Keeping in line with the newest and best presentation for villains, the third movie in the series included none other than Aamir Khan. It can't get better than this.
Aamir is known for his perfection to the finest details. He creates an expectation even if he is working in a 30 second commercial. So, it is justified that the movie hype would increase multiple times if he is playing a villain's role.
Another interesting character is Katrina Kaif. She would take care of glamour part of the movie. Even here, the series has tried to improvise. Going from Isha Deol in first movie directly to Aishwarya Rai in the second was a big jump. The series needed some one to fill in those shoes. I guess Katrina Kaif would do justice. Not every one would expect her to actually act in the movie, because there hardly will be anything to act for her. The movie is all about bikes, chases and speed. So, probably Katrina Kaif just have to look good and dance around. There might be some emotional touch to her character, but seriously nobody cares.

I wouldn't say anything about Abhishek Bachhan. I don't expect anything from him.Except for movie Yuva, he hasn't really impressed me as an actor.

The weakest link and the one that makes this movie series look bad is Udya Chopra. In spite the case that it is their home production, he should have been cut loose.

Early reviews from the viewers apparently are not that great. Many complaints came:
The movie is a copy of "so and so Hollywood movie".
The action sequence are repetitive. No newness.
It is just a run chase movie. No details of Bank robbery given. Something not expected from Aamir Khan.
Some commented that why Indian Police were called for bank robbery in Chicago. Are they worse than us?
One comment on the movie review on Times of India made me really laugh. I will copy paste a part of it here.
" I thought the target audience for this film are the people who were in deep cryogenic sleep for over a century and never seen a motion picture."

After all reading all this, I am thinking to wait a little  long before I may think of watching the movie. If you have watched it or surely planning  to watch, then do write here, your views about the movie. Lets see, our expectations were right or the reality is different.

AAP - changing the face of politics

One good thing has happened in Indian politics, origin and success of a new party called "Aam Aadmi Party", in short, "AAP", a word which otherwise in Hindi is used to say " You" with respect.
AAP has done a fantastic job of shaking the usual way of doing politics in India. I was really wondered when AAP received such a huge success in Delhi elections. I did expected it to do well, to outperform congress, but I did not expected, it will change the whole scenario in its first ever attempt. More over the way Arvind Kejriwal defeated 3 times chief minister Shiela Dixit, by an appreciable margin says a lot about the need of change people are looking for in politics.
What impressed me more  is the way AAP is trying to carry itself even after elections. The way they took a stern stand not to hurry in to get power and instead preferring to sit in opposition says a lot. It will surely prevail some sense of conduct among other political parties too.
I hope AAP does not change its route in course of time and actually rises up on idealistic way of doing politics. Though it seems difficult. Arvind Kejriwal may not deviate from his path, but can we say the same about all the followers when the party starts spreading its wings. Will the party keep working with its idealistic views or will it change over the time. Time has all the answers.
Till then, lets be happy that for a change something good has happened in Indian politics and wish it to grow as good as possible.
