This and That

Partied at Karnataka Sports Association Club in Chinmaya Stadium. Got to watch Ranjhi Trophy between MP and Karnataka. Thought that Chinnaswamy Stadium was much bigger than what was there. HUH !! Cricketers look better in white than in their colored uniforms... PVR multiplex that opened in FORUM, Koramangala rocks. Watched Choker Bali there and was stumped by the quality of the theatre and the service. Its like a multinational operation. User friendly ticketing centre. Good display of movies running there. You can also sit in the lounge and have some good eats while waiting for the movie. Review of the bengali movie Choker Bali can be read here. I love Rituporno Ghosh. He is an awesome director... His treatment of each story is so unique.
Rituporno Ghosh Rituporno Ghosh. This is the name, which is drawing the urban sensible Bengali audiences to the hall after a really long long time. To know more click here...
Screens are much bigger than the Marathahalli multiplex which is like watching a larger version of a TV. Seats are comfortable and though the eateries are a wee bit expensive.. its okay I guess.. Never seen so many people as I saw in Forum. If they were not walking around that area, they were hanging out sitting outside the mall... Good lord seemed that the whole of Bangalore was there.. Now all we need is an IMAX. Bangalore is happening. Tried a new place called Hungry Buddha... if you are planning to have a quick dinner.. this is a good place to be... read the review here. I liked the name and found it quite cool. Watched Khushi... found this movie better than Veer Zaara. SIGH. For review click here. Watched Laws of Attraction.. great romantic comedy... you should watch this. You can read the review here. If you are interested you can view some of the shots that I have updated.. on my visit to Nagarhole here are some more shots ... A view from my Office Balcony... ( this was just experimenting with my Canon Powershot S 400 Digital Elph). Digital cameras are kinda fussy... I prefer the normal camera anyday.. have to get used to a lot of buttons.. SIGH. I hate anything which has lots of buttons.. Now its a Monday all over again !!
