Drona – Pathetic Piece of Shit; Abhishek Bachchan Stinks

Abhishek Bachchan Sets New Pathetic Record

So, you thought Love Story 2050 was ugly?

And you thought Sarkar Raj was lousy?

You thought God Tussi Great Ho was crappy?

Well, count your blessings if you ain’t seen this pathetic piece of shit called Drona.

Compared to the nightmare that Drona represents, Love Story 2050, Sarkar Raj and every other ugly Bollywood movie ever made is a Oscar-worthy masterpiece.

Take it from us, this duffer called Abhishek Bachchan can’t act.

Yes, Abhishek Bachchan can’t score even an F in acting. Period.

Somebody, please unleash Charles Bronson or Dr Jack Kevorkian on this jackass.


And Drona’s bozo of a director Goldie Behl, who also claims responsibility for this asinine story, knows less about movie-making than the dumbest spotboy on a Tamil movie set.

Why do we believe Goldie Behl is the patron saint of all jackasses? Because the Drona story is so utterly unconvincing and unappealing, the settings are so amateurish, the music is so pedestrian, stunt scenes are downright mediocre and the overall effect of watching Drona is of walking into a room full of Down’s Syndrome cases.

You say special effects in Drona – We say what special effects? We didn’t see any.

Besides its hopelessly inane story, the most striking thing about Drona is an expressionless Abhishek Bachchan, who zombie-like sleepwalks through the entire movie.

Not once does Abhisekh’s character Aditya show any sign of life – not when his mother Queen Jayati Devi (Jaya Bachchan) turns into a statue, not when he’s told about his messianic purpose on Earth, not when the evil demon tricks him in the sword fight, not when he’s singing with the white boys and girls, not when his aunt taunts him. Never.

In Drona, Abhishek is a slow-motion walking and talking advertisement for rigor mortis.

Considering that Abhishek Bachhan’s mission is to save the universe from impending destruction at the hands of an evil demon Riz Raizada (Kay Kay Menon), why then does Abhishek’s character Aditya talk and walk like time hangs heavily on him. Hey, this is a Twenty20 game in Mumbai not a five-day test match at Lord’s.

Abhishek Bachchan’s accomplices in this torture drama are Bollywood Incompetence Queen Priyanka Chopra and Kay Kay Menon, who seems to have completely lost his marbles.

Priyanka Chopra is a ghastly apparition under any circumstance but to see this dodo fight in Drona is a torture worthy of Ivan the Terrible.

Kay Kay Menon’s performance in Black Friday as the police officer Rakesh Maria out to quickly nab the bombing suspects impressed us a lot. Suffice to say, Kay Kay’s cartoon-like performance in Drona depressed us a lot.

Notwithstanding what you may have heard, Kay Kay Menon is not the villain of Drona. Au contraire, considering his clownish antics and acting in the movie, he’s the buffoon – Johnny Lever, Asrani, Rajpal Yadav, Vivek and Vadivelu rolled in one.

Drona opens with Aditya (Abhishek Bachchan) working in a grocery store in some foreign land and stoically enduring the abuses of his aunt and cousin Rajesh. Little does the zombie oops Aditya realize that he’s actually more than a grocery store clerk – Ha ha, he’s the protector not just of Planet Earth but the universe itself against dark elements like the magician Riz Raizada (Kay Kay Menon). He’s the Drona. Ha ha, again.

And playing his bodyguard – of all characters – is the fatuous freako actress Priyanka Chopra.

In his quest for immortality, Raizada is obsessed with getting the chalice of nectar that the gods had hidden on Earth after churning the ocean in the distant past.

Only one man can lead the evil Raizada to the nectar and immortality – Drona. But only one man stands between Raizada and immortality – Drona.

Music? Hell, Drona has no such thing. Every single number in Drona filled us with the anguish at the depths Bollywood has fallen.

Whether it’s the first song Khushi (showing Abhishekh going through the motions of dancing), Nanhe Nanhe (picturized on Jaya Bachchan in her dotage) or the hideous Oop, Oop Cha featuring Priyanka Chopra dancing like the ugly monster Medusa in heat, Drona’s music is in one word drivel.

In Drona, the troika of Abhishek Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and Kay Kay Menon under the supervision of the nincompoop Goldie Behl has delivered an ugly monstrosity that achieves the odious distinction of being worse than Love Story 2050, the Gold Standard of ugly Bollywood movies.

If you have any love for yourself, if you have any value for your time, if you have any respect for your hard-earned money, then spare your family, friends and yourself the trauma of watching this Black Plague a.k.a Drona.

    To searchindia guys,

    Go and turn your DVD players on and watch some classics. For just intoxicating your eyes and ears that are totally affected by the piece of shit named Drona (Or Droha!)

    And thanks for the enormous risk you took 😛

    If we call this a piece of shit, it would be a disgrace for shit x(

    You said “Somebody, please unleash ……… Dr Jack Kevorkian on this jackass…..”

    I am not sure whether you meant it as a compliment to or denouncement of Kevorkian. But I certainly consider Kevorkian to be a sensitive intelligent human(if not, he couldn’t have done what he had done) and he is certainly not an assassin or a mercenary to be ‘unleashed’ upon anyone…I read about Kevorkian in Reader’s Digest long back and flabbergasted to find that this man reflects my very own philosophy that death is not necessarily a punishment to humans but in most cases it’s a luxury(of course, Kevorkian himself never said it that way). And I very much remember admiring Kevorkian for his courage to take a chance with his own life to put what he is deeply convinced about in practice. In that sense, I would consider Kevorkian’s intentions to be deeply humane, though, at the end, he childishly and impudently tried to ‘prove his point’ too much, for he had delivered many people from needless, painful and dishonorable suffering by giving them ‘what they’d badly needed but could not afford’; an easy and respectful death. Why?? What do we get as an alternative to Kevorkian?? The indifferent and uppity doctors who try to wash their hands off their terminally ill patients at the first opportunity ? or the meaningless and degrading mechanical existence in a wheelchair or on a hospital cot ? or the priggish, smug judiciary which brazenly gives itself the right to define in obtuse legal terms something as complex as life and death and inhumanly expects the sick and the sympathizer alike to swear by it ? the cursing, depressed kith and kin who are sick and tired themselves of wiping your saliva and mopping your shit ? or the hypocritical preachers who are steeped in feel-good status quo morality ? or else the unscrupulous, money leeching quack practitioners of alternative medicine ? I don’t know…for me, what Kevorkian had done was something remarkable if not revolutionary (though he stupidly tried to play a heroic rebel, which ultimately undone his noble intentions). The acute suffering of a terminally ill patient at last exposes the inherent cruelty of human existence and Kevorkian attempted to meet the challenge with an exceptional directness without fussing around inconsequential moral flimflam. What is Kevorkian’s fault?? Is it that he tried to meet a human, alone and scared in unbearable mental and physical agony as another empathetic ‘practical’ human stripping the relationship at once of stuffy, pretentious ethical obligations of human society ? I wish the snobs who imprisoned Kevorkian got into the shoes of the numerous patients Kevorkian emancipated from pain, I wish they knew how desperately they longed for that small needle or a gas mask Kevorkian brought to their beds with deep compassion. If only Kevorkian restrained himself and realized he didn’t have anything to prove to anyone and that he is far too precious to drain his energies fighting the system, if only he had gone about his work innocuously and quietly, I am sure he would have helped many more who not only could have seen his point crystal clearly but actually needed at once what he had to offer. What a waste ……..

    PS: I wonder why Hollywood hasn’t yet attempted a film on something as significant as euthanasia or has it??

    You write above: You said “Somebody, please unleash ……… Dr Jack Kevorkian on this jackass…..”

    I am not sure whether you meant it as a compliment to or denouncement of Kevorkian.

    In a complimentary vein.

    Kevorkian, Ralph Nader (consumer protection activist, critic of the corporate stranglehold over the U.S. political system and author of Unsafe at any Speed) and a few others are in our American pantheon of heroes.

    Kevorkian’s only error was in the infernal publicity machine that did him in. Otherwise, he’d never have gone to prison for eight years.

    A lesson to readers that even when you do God’s Work (apposite expression in Kevorkian’s case), you need to do it quietly. Ironically, if God did his/her/its work, Kevorkian would be unnecessary.

    Bottomline, the sentence Somebody, please unleash Charles Bronson or Dr Jack Kevorkian on this jackass was used in the above review to bring a sledgehammer to the point we were trying to make that Bollywood fans need relief from the painful consequences of Abhishek Bachchan’s non-acting.

    Hi Araj,
    hope you wouldn’t mind some constructive criticism..

    I don’t know if it is just me or do you have utter disregard for paragraph breaks.. my grammar and vocabulary are nowhere near as good as yours, but I think paragraph breaks are almost as important as the caps lock.. I am just giving feedback which I think may help a very good writer get even better.

    SI, what do you think..

    BTW, I am with you two on Kevorkian.

    Araj, did you catch your favorites De Niro and Clooney in their new movies?

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    You write: SI, what do you think..

    Consider it Araj’s unique ishstyle.

    Ernest Hemingway was known for his short sentences…Gabriel Garcia Marquez for his phantasmagorical sentences…Churchill for the brilliant prose, Shakespeare among other things for the brilliant pithy quotes, Macaulay for the trenchant criticism in his essays/reviews, JFK (actually Theodore Sorensen) for the inspiring sentences….

    And Araj for the paragraph-less comments on the SearchIndia.com blog.

    No, just kidding. 🙂

    Gandhiji, we agree. Paragraph breaks would help to expand Araj’s reader base.

    “Aditya (Abhishek Bachchan) working in a grocery store in some foreign land and stoically enduring the abuses of his aunt and cousin Rajesh.”

    I think J.K. Rowling just burst a blood-vessel in anger and/or vomited in disgust.

  5. eklavya   October 2, 2008 at 2:18 pm

    Thanks for saving my time & money ! I’ll refrain from watching Drona now.

    Your very very blunt (and quite honest) comments on Abhishek Bachchan forced me to register here. It is true that he does not possess good acting skills and his last name has made him survive till now. But don’t you think that we are being too harsh on him just because he is the son of Big B? After all, he is better than many other star sons like : Tusshar Kapur, Fardeen Khan & Bobby Deol?

    I liked his movie ‘Guru’ very much. Though it is an off topic question, how do you rate him in ‘Guru’?

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Choose from Tusshar Kapur, Fardeen Khan, Bobby Deol or Abhishek Bachchan?

    It’s like asking a condemned man – do you want to die on the gallows, by firing squad, via electric shock or by the guillotine. The end result is the same.

    All these fellas are too lazy or utterly stupid to learn the craft.

    Guru was lousy. It did not bring Dhirubhai Ambani to life.

  6. araj   October 4, 2008 at 3:41 pm

    To Gandhiji:

    1. “…hope you wouldn’t mind some constructive criticism…”

    Was it actually criticism you were doing??? 🙂

    2. “…I don’t know if it is just me or do you have utter disregard for paragraph breaks….”

    I have neither disregard for paragraph breaks nor the regard. It’s just never crossed my mind it’s that big deal. The reason, I assume, why I do not split paragraphs could be that I often treat a single paragraph as one big consecutive idea, hence I subconsciously fear, perhaps, that any external break in the paragraph would interrupt the internal mental sequence of thoughts I try to induce in the reader. Of course, it is an illusion, but then, I am a man who is precariously susceptible to illusions. Nevertheless, point taken.

    3. “…my grammar and vocabulary are nowhere near as good as yours..”

    Well, if we ever lock horns in an English vocabulary/grammar test, I can safely assure you that you will win the contest hands down. I feel my strength lies in ‘concepts’ than in the ‘craft’(though they often enrich each other). Actually, talking of proficiency in vocabulary and grammar, I think Searchindia guy(s) here is/are unbeatable. They/he/she come(s) up with such astonishing array of inventive expressions/exotic words in their/his/her reviews and comments alike. Their/his/her skill is all the more remarkable considering that they/he/she not only have/has to write a formidable review but have/has to come up with lightening fast responses to hundreds of comments.(are/is they/he/she a he or a she or shes or hes??? 🙂 :))

    4. “……which I think may help a very good writer get even better…”

    Thank you for your kind words. But I don’t consider myself at all a ‘writer’. Writer is a very heavy word and it entails living up to a definition that demands consistency, proficiency, versatility and above all perspicacity, at least in the subject you write upon. I have much too scattered energies to be informed enough to be a writer and if I have to call myself someone, then I would like to describe myself as just ‘intelligent’(ha…ha…ha..) who occasionally uses language to say what he feels (that statement implies someone who falls somewhere between a ‘psychic’ and a ‘peacock’, I know).

    5. “…did you catch your favorites De Niro and Clooney in their new movies?..”

    Nope. I am too restless these days to watch any movie. Moreover, I think we have seen enough of De Niro and Clooney. Haven’t we???

    PS: What’s the idea behind your alias ‘gandhiji’? do you admire that man or is it your real name??

    To Searchindia:

    6. “Ernest Hemingway was known for his short sentences…….JFK (actually Theodore Sorensen) for the inspiring sentences….”

    For a moment, I thought you were serious……..No, just kidding. 🙂 (I have read none of the writers you’d mentioned. No kidding).

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    You write above: I think Searchindia guy(s) here is/are ….are/is they/he/she a he or a she or shes or hes???

    Thanks for leaving out the pronoun it. 🙂

  7. guruprasad.s   October 5, 2008 at 8:57 am

    What was director Goldie Behl thinking when making Drona ?

    Instead of spending quality time with his beautiful wife Sonali Bendre, this Behl guy has burnt the producers’ and viewers’ money, wasted time, and in general, aroused a lot of pent-up rage of the audience. I refuse to blame Bachhan Jr., since he anyway belongs to the category of – in the words of SearchIndia folks, – “those who wouldnt recognize acting even if it hit them in the face (or anywhere for that matter)”. So blame the folks who make movies with such fellows.

    Bollywood is regarded as tough-to-get-in for newcomers, precisely because of people like Tusshar Kapoor, Arbaaz & Sohail Khan, Zayed Khan, Fardeen Khan, Bachchan Jr., Bobby Deol, Esha Deol, Sanjay Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Vivek Oberoi (of late), Suniel Shetty (not a star-son or brother, but still a pain), who think that it is their god-given right to act without knowing what acting is. Fortunately, of late, except for a few of these, most are in decline. And with movies like Drona, I hope their descent is accelerated.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Every single name you mention above (Tusshar Kapoor, Arbaaz Khan, Abhishek Bachchan et al) are abominable actors and parasites feeding at the Bollywood trough.

    As for Esha Deol, Shakespeare modeled the characters of The Three Witches in Macbeth on this horror show a.k.a Esha Deol. Remember the famous lines of the Witches in Macbeth: Fair is foul, and foul is fair: Hover through the fog and filthy air. Now, don’t those lines represent Esha Deol’s acting well.

    The yesteryear actors (Dharmendra, Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjeev Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Sharmila Tagore, Asha Parekh, Rekha) were never as bad as the present lot presumably because they had to work hard.

  8. gandhiji   October 5, 2008 at 11:14 am

    I envy both you (araj) and SI.. both write very well..

    Gandhiji (neither am i a big fan nor it is my name) is one my innumerable internet personalities. My favorite one is a black id.. which I use to taunt racist whites and blacks.. and also use that to kick ass in fantasy sports.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Racism is not so prevalent in CA, NJ or NY. But as you travel south or in the midwest, it gets worse.

    But for racism, Obama should have a 40-point lead (not a piddling seven-point lead) over the senile clown John McCain given the disastrous Republican administration of the last eight years.

  10. shuaib68   October 6, 2008 at 4:47 am

    Same here. I consider SI (The Commander in Chief) Araj (The General) & Gandhiji (The Deputy General) and me a foot soldier observing the clobbering of the “Bozos, Zombies, Buffoons” in the film industry (Especially the Bolly,kolly,tolly kids).

    I learnt a lot of expressions that are dished out in SI and found it very interesting, modern and hillarious.

    Keep it up!

    Its been more than 15 minutes that I read this review, and I’m still in splits. My friends here are asking me whether I’ve gone loony 😀

    Super review, agree with you one hundred percent.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    That fella Abhishek Bachchan is a bloody disgrace, even by Bollywood’s pitiful standards.

    As we wrote in the review, In Drona, Abhishek is a slow-motion walking and talking advertisement for rigor mortis.

  14. asha.tampa   October 21, 2008 at 9:19 am

    Pushpak is a silent film featuring Kamal Hassan. Dint find it too memorable, since I watched it when I was a kid, and I was bored to death.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Sometimes we think we’ve seen Pushpak. Sometimes, we’re not so sure.

    Guess, the best thing to do is to get the DVD & check it out.

  15. gandhiji   October 21, 2008 at 10:08 am

    LOL man, I’m laughing so hard, I think my hostel mates are gonna wake up and beat me! Tell me, now, how on earth were you able to frame that sentence?! Ohh and yeah, SearchIndia, your answer was adorable! 😀

    Am here again re-reading the Drona review; thanks to Goldie Behl for making that movie, we wouldn’t have had such a superb review otherwise! LOL again 😀

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Goldie Behl has been promising a Drona sequel to anyone who’ll listen to him (not many in that category, these days).

    Apparently SRK’s son liked it. Makes you wonder what SRK’s son drinks every morning (surely can’t be Horlicks if he liked Drona).

  17. asha.tampa   October 21, 2008 at 3:21 pm

    Snicker snicker:D
    @ Araj: why dont we just try and solve the puzzle, and make that confusing sentence easier?

    Alrite, here’s what Detective Asha thinks:

    SearchIndia is just one person. Atleast, the one who writes Bollywood reviews is. I’ve notices the same sense of humor in every piece; it is impossible to fake a sense of humor, especially while writing. If it really is a team, they’ve had damn good training. Next, I would say it was a guy, based on how he/she/they reacted to my first comment (yeah, it was unpleasant, the way we exchanged a few hot words). But then, I’ve personally never met a guy who’s read more than a 100 mills and boons. No offence meant dear, but… I have this pre-conceived notion that only girls read MNBs. I thought I was the greatest fan of MNB, and you came along and made me jealous.

    Well, SearchIndia? Are you going to put us out of our misery? 😀

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    OK, Sherlock Holmes….All is grist to our reading mill.

    By the way, we’ve added Leopard in the Snow (the first M&B to be made into a movie) to our Netflix DVD queue.

    We’ll review it soon after. Think of it – The first M&B Movie Review – only on SearchIndia.com. Coming soon from the folks who know their M&Bs (including the Masquerade series)!

  18. asha.tampa   October 21, 2008 at 3:46 pm

    Geez! You sure know who’s waiting for the review! Will watch the movie first, though. Catch you later, am sleepy now, gnyt! Or rather, good day!

    Interesting theory. This certainly explains everything. If this is indeed a couple we are talking about, then kudos to them for having an identical sense of humor.

    PS: I still think it is a single person. SearchIndia says, “We”. He/she clarified that it is the royal “We”.

    Cmon, SI, put an end to all this speculation. You’ll start a nation wide contest to find out what/who SearchIndia is. 🙂

    i think there is a subtle difference in their writing styles and how they spell their tamil words. One of them spells accurately and the other spells like a non-native speaker.

    It would be odd that the same person who likes MNB also likes whiskey (not many women like that), and big silicone boobs.

    being in the US (and being obsessed with SI) helps a lot.. i have noticed some messages (once I saw a latin message which declared that SI had intimate relationship with the vile poster’s mom) appear and disappear.. i am only thinking that one of them posts them and the other one deletes them. I’d think (going by stereotypes) that the husband posted that and the wife deleted it.. or it may be the other way round.. and kinkier.

    araj, asha, shuaib, strynglad.. anyone of you is a hacker? i am not.. we need a hacker in this quest to reveal SI’s identit(y/ies).

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    1. We are reminded of what Polonius says (in an aside) in Hamlet,

    Though this be madness, yet there is method in’t. Will you walk out of the air, my lord?

    (Act II, Scene II, P.616, The Tragedies of Shakespeare, Spencer Press Edition)

    Obiter dictum: We picked up the above volume at an yard sale in L.A. some centuries ago. One of the nice things about the U.S. is that there’s always an yard sale around where people are looking to get rid of their old books for low prices.

    2. You write: araj, asha, shuaib, strynglad.. anyone of you is a hacker? i am not.. we need a hacker in this quest to reveal SI’s identit(y/ies).

    Ever since we started this blog, we’ve had a relentless, brutal attack on our computer servers.

    When you speak truth to power (as we delude ourselves into thinking about the direction of the SI journey) to those with Himalayan egos and plenty at stake, do you really think there are no consequences. Comprende?

  25. gandhiji   October 22, 2008 at 11:00 am

    I Comprended the second portion about the consequences.. Sun CEO probably is your #1 enemy. Not all “coolies” are dumb IT workers..

    But as I have said before.. I am not sophisticated enough to understand Shakespeare. So didn’t understand what you were trying to convey with the Polonius message. I guess you are saying that there is a method to your madness.. I don’t think you are so diabolical to go that extent of creating a split personality.. or maybe you are..

    “Will you walk out of the air” completely bemused me. What does that mean..

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    1. You write above: Sun CEO probably is your #1 enemy

    Are you out of your mind?

    Life’s too short to have enemies or friends for that matter.

    We’re just reporting on the facts here.

    Sun’s shares fell 17.5% yesterday. Does that mean Sun is the #1 enemy for Wall Street?

    2. You write: I am not sophisticated enough to understand Shakespeare

    Good starting point for Hamlet.

  26. shuaib68   October 22, 2008 at 2:29 pm

    I am a exhibitionist @$%! That’s why I didn’t see anything wrong in calling myself, am fully naked.

    I feel honoured when respected people like SI,Gandhijii, Joeantony address me directly by my name.

    Coming back to the gossip:
    who is SI anyway!!$$%%^^????

    I’ve been watching movies left right and centre recently; watched the entire Indiana Jones collection this weekend, Clueless today, 50 First Dates yesterday, and my faithful server is steadily downloading one torrent file after the other. Watching movies at night, and dozing off in the office during day time, LOL. You prefer romantic comedies, or drama? I’m a sucker for romantic comedies, loved When Harry met Sally, Serendipity, Runaway Bride, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and whew! The list goes on and on and on

    So, you caught on to our little secret.

    We are actually a bored call center employee from Gharapuri. Would much appreciate it if you kept this tidbit to yourself….We mean… not share it with other netizens like Gandhiji, shuaib68 et al. 🙂

    2. We watched When Harry met Sally, My Big Fat Greek Wedding et al in the last two years. Liked both.

    3. You write: You prefer romantic comedies, or drama

    We have a catholic taste in movies, books and life itself.

    Happy Diwali a.k.a. Deepavali to you & your loved ones as well.

    Somebody is really imaginative and caring!!!!

    Happy Deepawali wishes from me & my family to all of you guys.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Happy Diwali to You & Family too.

    We certainly miss the festivities here.

  34. asha.tampa   October 29, 2008 at 2:34 pm

    Hey, dont you have a get together sort of thing, and celebrate Diwali? I know you are away from home (you say so 😀 ) but that’s no reason to miss festivities! you could light diyas and buy new clothes! thats what i do, anyways. provides the perfect excuse to go shopping 😀

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    1. You write above: I know you are away from home (you say so 😀 )

    So you still think we are hiding somewhere on the outskirts of Hyderabad like Dilshukhnagar, Puranapool or Falaknama. 🙂

    2. This Diwali was a dull affair. We live far from the Indian community. The Indian association get-togethers are also boring – same old tiny tots dancing….same old same old.

    (Nearest Hindu Temple is about 70km.)

  35. asha.tampa   October 30, 2008 at 2:25 am

    Cmon now, this is spooky! How on earth do u know these places? I’ve been in Hyderabad since the last 2 and a half years, and I know just Dilsukhnagar!!! Either you lived here, or you were a genius in Geography as a kid 🙂

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Have you tried the butter biscuits at Karachi Bakery (in Abids), the Kajas from Pulla Reddy Sweets (Abids), the Avakkai pickle fom Chikadapalli Pickle Store and the hot tea from Iranian tea shops?

    Rumor has it that Nirvana is assured for anyone who has tried all four.

    Food, Books and Movies are our raisons d’être in our case….hence we try to bring these topics into our threads as often as possible.

    No, we don’t know geograpi…we only know good Madras Kapi.

  36. asha.tampa   October 30, 2008 at 1:43 pm

    Holy Jesus Christ! Forgive my blasphemy, but u’ve left me no choice! Aaaaarrrggghh!! Well dude, yeah, I’ve eaten Karachi Bakery products, and they’ve helped me put on more than a few pounds! As for the Pulla Reddy sweets, there are lotsa branches now, but now u’ve got to tell me; how??? I’m really confused! You’ve lived in Hyderabad for quite a long time, and you write Tamil reviews, you speak Tamil, holy Gaad, The Enigma of the 21st century – thats what you are.

    Who Are You?! :-/

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    We’ve never visited Karachi Bakery but some folks once got us some of those butter biscuits here…Salivating.

    Some folks eat to live. As for others….you know the rest.

    If ever we return (dreaming of settling down in Varanasi), it’ll be for the good, authentic food.

  37. asha.tampa   October 30, 2008 at 2:21 pm

    Ohhh yeeaaahh!!! By golly, I know what you left unwritten! So I live to eat, huh! Umm, ahem, anyways, thats what my folks say, too, heh! 🙂

    Lets face it dude, no point in starving yourself jus so you could be eye candy to others! And what abt settling in Varanasi? Is the food that good? I’ve been there once before, but I dont have any special memories abt the food; if it was special, you can bet I’ll remember it! Am a total foodie 🙂

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    1. You write above: So I live to eat, huh!

    Actually, that was not a reference to you but to yours truly.

    When someone once asked us what ideology or ism we believed in, we unhesitatingly answered: Gourmandism (yes, the word exists….please see p.541. of Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary 11th Ed, 2005).

    Please see some of our restaurant reviews here: Anjappar, Hoysala, Tamba

    2. Why Varanasi? It has some mysterious hold over us.

  38. asha.tampa   October 30, 2008 at 2:44 pm

    Aww, ok! Infact, I’ve already read yr restaurant reviews before, and if I remember correctly, Tamba was crucified 😀

    Am off to read a good old MNB; its been quite a few days since I read one, its been this horrid new fascination towards computer games that kept me away from them. Do write a review on The Bridges of Madison County! Wanna see your point of view!

    Cya! Or, like you would say, Hasta Manana, Senor! Hope I got it right 😀

    It should actually be Hasta mañana, señor.. (I think)

    Wikipedia has this entry for ñ which comes after n in the spanish alpha butt.

    An excellent review to a pathetic movie, junior B really sucks big time!

  41. orangezeb   March 6, 2009 at 10:46 am

    Who would have though to give this [deleted] a film with a title like Drona aka bucket aka washout? I guess the sequel should be Ashwathama? How can any actress let alone his old wife kiss a man with all that damn hair on his chin?!?

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    God knows how much Eros lost on Drona.

    btw dhoom 2 was the worst bollywood movie to come out ever….and u call it slick???!!!! damn,i thought u were a professional(a messed up one though)……

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    We sought forgiveness from all Gods from all religions for blessing this movie. 🙁

    Like good wine, our reviews have gotten better over the years.

    Abhishek Bacchan should not only be used in advertisements for rigor mortis, but also in advertisements for companies making pillows, mattresses, and other things used to promote a good night’s sleep…

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Abhishek Bachchan is a pustulating sore on the ugly backside of Bollywood.

    The jackass steadfastly refuses to improve in the cocky belief that his last name affords him a divine right to pathetic acting.

    As long as Abhishek’s old man is alive, some crumbs will fall his way. After that, it’s le déluge for the bozo unless he turns producer and casts himself.
