Nish, Son, what on earth did you see on the BBC story that made a positive comment about the movie? The person has not even seen it, and makes no bones about the fact! Don't tell me you fall for avertising dressed as reporting! Tch Tch!

Some tags for this one (mind the quotes):

Media hype, loyal fans, 'its differnt', 'hip', 'cool', 'he is so cute', we-can-not-make-a-decent-movie-EVER, another dumb oscar consideration for a foreign film, smart-movie-for-dumb-people (compared to dumb-movies-for-dumb-people).

Essar said...

Really? After all that hype and will-it-be-another-lagaan hype? Sheesh.

Rash said...
