Feb 08, and the weekend's gone before you can say

Paa...

Ok, I managed to catch it this weekend. Paresh Rawal has progressed from being Amitabh's father-in-law to Amitabh's grandfather. At this rate, Balki's next will be a Hindi adaptation of Night At The Museum, and Pareshji will play a Neanderthal to AB's Ben Stiller.

Also, I'm a little confused by the message of the film: is it now legal to wed by holding hands around Amitabh only, or around any heavily-made up person, any sick person, or only your kid? Anyway, I aged rapidly in viewing the film, and Vidya Balan scared me by telling me the horrible things that will happen to me if I do not have a child. Had she shown one example of sound judgement elsewhere in the film, I'd probably have believed her.

But enough of Paa-bashing. I need to save some breath for MNIK-bashing also. Shahrukh Uncle says that the film is comical, romantical, social, political, psychological, paranormal, and 100% recyclable. I think he just hopes the audience is very gullible.

And oh, anyone else waiting for the Google Parisian Love Story ad spoof where the dork searches for STD cures or a divorce lawyer? To drop me a line when you spot any! Thanks!

Update: Found one! Here!

does anybody actually say paa these days ? Caught an episode of Bingo recently with Abhishek & Amitabh, and was quite put off by the constant usage of "paa". Paa, you won the bingo! Abbe saale, both you hindi film stars, thoda hindi nahi bol sakte ? That doesn't mean Abhishek should call him Pitaji! But Paa ?
