The Unimaginative

The first weekened after college re-opened on the 4th! Was waiting for this since... the beginning of the week :) With the kind of lecturers we have this year, five days felt more like five weeks. Anyway, now time for a movie... and speaking of movies, take a look at this —

So Bollywood has moved on to ripping-off stuff from video games now... guess they ran out of things they could (sort of) copy from Hollywood movies. Pathetic really. India is so full of unimaginative people (there are exceptions, of course). They can't even come up with a tune for a song on their own these days. The recent "Aaj Kal Tere Mere" remix has the beats of Will Smith's "Switch" in it. Then there was this song called "O Haseena" (from the movie Haseena) I saw some time ago which had the tune of Safri Duo's "Rise"! There was one more song I saw yesterday which was a ripoff... can't remember it now. Does their right brain even function at all?

There's a new photo in my photo gallery - "Four LEDs". Took that shot when there was a power cut at home. I first saw this kind of thing done in some of Pablo's (early) photos. There will probably be another new photo over there in a few days, so stay tuned.

Nice post...

Also had a look at the LEDs photo. Looks like one of your wallpapers :) It's very good... you also seem to have got a number of good comments on it!

Heya Varun !

Well... Basically rippofs are done in in hindi only from the previous hindi songs .. it doesnt make a diff if SOME thing is copied from english or some other stuff (it just comes that way)...Nothing Is PURE my dear !

And dont forget the unforgettable songs that hindi lang. has given us .. SOME rip-off is pardoned :)

At last ! Guess who I am :)
