Name: Bobby Jasoos

Released: July 4, 2014

Cast:  Vidya Balan and features Ali FazalSupriya PathakRajendra Gupta and Tanvi Azmi (Source- Wikipedia)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Suspense

When did I watch it: July 5, 2014

Where: INOX

Price: INR 330

Plot: A Hyderabadi 30 something ambitious girl who dreams to be a detective at a “Pvt. Ltd.” She starts her own firm and makes a lot of money by solving the cases presented by a wealthy man from London. Her father’s disapproval to the profession makes her want it even more.

USP: When do we get to see a 30 something woman in India chasing her dream and is actually good at it? Her orange converse shoes were a good catch. The makeup artist did a fantastic job with the transformations. We absolutely loved Supriya Pathak too. :)

High Points: Excellent adaptation of the characters into conservative Hyderabadi Muslims.

Lack Luster: The climax was such an anti climax. The entire build up was for practically nothing. Such a disappointment. However the supporting cast and crew did a fantastic job of bringing the story together and keeping it so.

Songs: I didnt enjoy them except, Jashn which was alright.

Over all review: *** 3/5 One time watch.

The movie actually made me google about the Indian Women Detectives. I found out about Rajni Pandit. With over 7000 plus cases under her belt, she was the first woman detective. She has solved crimes that involved politicians, celebrities and commoners.

Cheers,

“Check out that hot chick, bhai.”

“Hey Sexy legs want some action?”

“Yes sir, these are the three guys who teased this young lady.” Said Gopal to the Police officer.

“Thanks for the help, I will take it from here.” Said Rukmani.

Movie Munchings #‎MB2014‬ ‪#‎MBdrabbleweek‬

Alien ships turned the dinosaurs into space metal to prepare an army and wipe off the mankind.

Optimus Prime meets a human who loves engineering and fixes him.

The Seed is stolen and is in wrong hands.

Megatron’s side kick, kicks Optimus’ precious ass a few times.

 

“Did he die?” asked the dessert spoon.

“Did he fight Megatron again? asked the salad fork.

“I dont know they stopped eating at the climax.” Sighed the tiffin box.

PS: Another one where the vessels spoke :)

“Where do you keep the salt?”

“Where is the cinnamon powder?”

“Why are there two kinds of oil in the pantry?”

“How do you find things in here?”

“Why are all labels not turned to the visible side?”

“Do you put garlic in the pasta that you love?”

“Oh crap! I forgot the baking powder in the cake, what do I do?”

“Please be a doll and ask the supermarket guy to get me some soup packets.”

“Okay come sit here and close your eyes.”

“Happy 50th Anniversary my love.”

“I promise I will clean up the mess.”

“Love you!”

Sam created a storm in the kitchen and whipped up the Thai Red Curry for her favorite star of the culinary world.

She plated it all up and it looked perfect.

“Curry?”

“Yes Please.

One spoonful and George Calombaris poured the glass of water on his head.

“Thanks for the meal.” Read the Masterchef Ticket.

Story of M #‎MB2014‬ ‪#‎MBdrabbleweek‬

Whenever M went out, he was immediately surrounded by loving people.

He had powerful energy and playfulness that was infectious.

A year passed by and it was his birthday, when he was seeing the gorgeous cake he decided to make a wish.

“God, please make me an animal for a day. Say a horse. He is fancy and beautiful.”

Well his wish didnt come true to the T, he was turned into a beautiful dog.

That day, all he did was jump around the house, get pampered to the MAX and lick the shit out of anyone who hated dogs.

PS: M stands for Moose Junior https://www.facebook.com/moose.junior.37/photos

PSS: Moose is my nephew and the child of proud pet parents Karuna and Siddhant. :)

PSSS: Moosie is a human :D

PSSSS: He just turned one :)

Pet peeve #‎MB2014‬ ‪#‎MBdrabbleweek‬

I heard the click-klack between the exams for the first time.

After few weeks when I could not take it anymore, I stared at Sanketh and shouted at him to stop cracking his knuckles.

6 years have passed, he still does it and all I can do is give a “I-keel-you” expression.

Best buddies never change.
