Vicky Donor- A fine delivery of a healthy baby;)

Vicky Donor- He doesn’t donate life saving blood, kidney or bone marrow; instead he gives new life by donating sperms. A fresh story giving importance to the fact that sperm donation is not an act to be ashamed of  , its rather a noble act which can bring happiness to so many parents devoid of kids! The concept is presented in a light breeze with out burdening you with heavy emotional drama! The entire first half of the movie is filled with such quick comedy that makes you fall of your seat.  director Shoojit Sircar and writer Juhi Chaturvedi created a total comic drama which is also heart felt and doesn’t lead to heavy bannered messages or morals but just lets people know that sperm donation and infertility treatment is not a crime. Anu kapoor lived up to the role and is back with a bang and I must say the back bone of the movie and the promos showing him as a doctor treating infertility were interesting enough to pull the audience to theatres. The scene where he explains that Anshuman is Arya putr and keeps on nagging to persuade him is ultra funny.Our hero is none other than RJ cum once upon a time MTV roadie  turned VJ / TV anchor Ayushmann Khurrana (Not sure why two ‘n’s and two ‘r’ s but who ever told his prophecy must have been feeling good too as it worked well for him ;)). I personally always liked him whenever he anchored on TV for Wassup / India has got talent etc etc. He even won an award for JUST DANCE  show! He is extremely promising and being a  Punjabi he looked so damn natural in the movie. Heroine Yami Gautam also seems talented and played the role of a Bengali girl Ashima Roy. Both the lead actor and actress are budding talents from Chandigarh. John Abraham being a producer is definitely a novelty and an add-on to movie is his rum rum rum song 🙂 Am not sure how much he succeeded as an actor but he must have become very glad by taking a wise decision.
Anu kapoor is witty and extremely funny doctor and he addressing each person as “confused sperm” “Unpredictable sperm” leaves you with wide smiles!Ayushmans mom and grand mom play equal roles in adding entertainment. Theirs is a typical Punjabi family who love themselves more than anyone else and the atmosphere in Dolly’s parlor and Ayushman assisting his mom is all natural , the scene you come across in any North Indian(Punjabi) beauty parlor!Dolly and her modern mother in law gulping down “n” number of pegs to forget their miseries is also fun to watch!! The first half of the movie leaves you in splits. The highlight and heart of the movie is the wedding scene where sophisticated, modern and calm Bengali Ashima marries Vicky Arora from a noisy ruckus creating Punjabi family. The milaap is interesting with rum rum rum – whisky song in the back ground and where two families gel well!

  After Intermission the movie gets a bit slow but as you are in full flow with the characters, story and quirky sensible dialogues you don’t get bored. The movie doesn’t harass you with loads of tears but even the slightest emotion shown in the movie gets heavy due to the humor through out! Finally as the movie ends I dint like Anshuman and his stern face and tears much, may be a fun frolic character all of a sudden shedding tears was funny or rather he needs more practice J The ending is good as they adopt a kid as Ashima can’t conceive but the only doubt I got here is can artificial insemination(with Vicky’s sperm ofcourse) not happen in case of Ashima and cant she bear a baby even if there is a pubic blockage??  Well am not sure if pubic blockage is such a serious infertility problem. Lets leave it to google and more analysis which I don’t want to do and spoil the review.  By the end of the movie the immediate feeling I had is I wanna watch Anshuman again in a much more entertaining movie with lots of freshness without being the sticky stereotype. The lady Yami is pretty with beautiful eyes and smile and acts well too so you can expect to see her around !
Theres no vulgarity or obscenity so you all can watch it along with family and no need to worry a lot as these days high school kids also know how to google and know much more than adults!
Kudos to shoojit and Juhi for showing this bold concept in a light way
My rating : 3.5/ 5
I love pani da rang song sung by Ayushmann which makes it more interesting but I start tapping my feet for the below song which is shown in the end and made me sit till the end of all titles🙂

So folks enjoy this movie which can also be named as “Entertaining sperm” J

Ab tak "pachpan"

No its not a sequel of ab tak chappan or any new TV show hosted by Nanapatekar and there is no remotest chance of me killing 55 as am a non-violent creature though not a staunch follower of Gandhi ! This number in a way boosts me and also I feel a bit low…Go down for more details

 55 is my number of followers. Even If I am blogging since 2007 I never was cautious about number of readers but now I feel little weird and at times low as many have become famous but am still struggling as to how to promote what I write or at times I think Let it be. Why to promote ? I would like to call them readers as followers makes me more of a politician or a person doing a morcha for a cause. They may read but mostly they dont! Many add me and then forget. You may ask me how I know this? I know coz its the same I do when there are too many blogs on my plate. After all I cant sit on lappy 24*7. 

My blogging started with a post on “Taare Zameen Par” I didnt even know that it should be termed as movie review then, though it wasnt exactly a review but it was all about how I felt after watching the movie. I very well remember the day I wrote it. I mailed to few friends of mine along with my brother and some from my close knit group introduced me to . I did find the idea amusing.Hitherto I wrote many more movie reviews and slowly some stories and articles about peope around me ,about people who are world to me, about what kind of people I feel like having around me!

My brother encouraged me to start one and gave me tips as to how to start a blog , colors  , themes etc etc by showing his own blog “Chronicles of Shadab” . He is not blogging much these days!!!

After that one fine day there was no stopping me! Actually on a second thought there was plenty of “stopping me”. There were  flat stretches of boring routine @ work , some, OK MANY unfulfilled aspirations , some broken dreams , broken  wings , lost friends , valleys of frustration etc etc . There were too many emotions all these years of which I could not Pen down many coz blog needs a jog! I didnt meet the pace of a regular blogger . I was and am a slow cycler and I always win in it :). I dont know too many techniques to promote my blog like I wrote here  “Indiblogging- A Rat Race”

I seeked advise from many famous bloggers. Some were kind enough to give replies , some just passed on a rude smile and some were too involved (with themselves) to notice .I wondered and am still wondering how some become famous and some “ALMOST FAMOUS” – by hook or by crook.

I am always attracted to cartoons – scot adams and Bill waterson being my favourites. With that inspiration I started a series of cartoons and successfully completed 10 of Half Baked Head Series. You Can see them on my blog with a label Half Baked Head Doodles ! I am good at poetry . It always brings me in mood however bad are the days or dry!! Did it rhyme ? Oh man am in love with any thing which rhymes – Lyrics of a song , Hindi Shayri , some names which rhyme – Ofcourse my name Afshan Khan too! This love doesnt mean I would name my future kids as shahjahan khan or rizwan khan 😀 

You can check my poems tagged with label poems on my blog!

So all the above and many more things are there which inspire you or which dont inspire , some things you want to write and tell the world – SEE I CAN EXPRESS SO NICELY and then between the lines you mean “Hello. Its not free of cost ! Do drop by and read totally and leave a comment or follow me. IT WILL MAKE MY DAY” !!

But ya some how I didnt succeed as lot when then number of followers/ Readers is taken in to consideration! I guess I need to improve a bit or may be a lot !When it comes to “how to become famous”  there are only two routes as below !( I LOVED IT)

Whether I become famous in a year or two or whether  I finish my book in 2-3 years or don’t but I will keep on putting my efforts and try to become “FAMOUS” from being “Almost Famous”!

Yes thanks to the 55th follower Dr.Sneha Rahatekar (A Colloquy Of BitterSweet Love) , RuperttWind (who boosted me with few good words), all the indibloggers who are most of my readers(For those who dont know indiblogger,here you are-> “Indiblogging” )and all the readers who almost read any thing I write and even followers who added me!

Thanks to many other silent readers( It would be really great if you like some thing I write and you mind telling me that 🙂 )! It would really feel “GOOD/ GOODER/ GOODEST” and also super glad like I got too many goodies if you are kind enough to let know your opinion on any write up !! This special mention as I have followers but very less readers. If U read and let me know I will also know what you write . Its Viceversa – some one who has 200+ followers/ readers told me this! Not coz he told but I really can go to the blog and read if I know some one reads my blog too 🙂

TO my friends who are always supportive XOX (Some one told me this icon means hug! Pardon me if its not ;))

To my husband , mom, dad and bro who understand my passion for writing– Love and lots of love. I feel great to have U all. You guys holding my back is enough to keep going!!

SO till we meet again lot of love / cheers &

"Sun to Rain"

 Bright yellow and burning was the blazing sun.
 Sweat all over and then having lemonade was fun!
Staying indoors was boring to save the skin from a burn.
 If only I was the fastest like Cheetah I would have run.

 Some angel heard my wish and there are showers.
 Pleasant it is around and neat are the flowers!
 Not  sure if its natures repercussion or Gods powers.
 It is a playful time for a kid and awesome time for lovers!!

I almost danced in joy seeing the weather change.
Events happened all over the world in a range!
Earthquake some where and tsunami alert did sound strange.
Is the foresight true finally as told by Mayans or some sage?

When I read in the news the ice in Arctic is melting,
I imagined volcanoes erupting and stones pelting!
I thought there’s lot to do, not so soon GOD.
As a second thought something made me prod!!

What I can do today, why delay to tomorrow?
There are many things to be done in a row!
Tasks can’t be finished with just a frown on the brow!
With a hope to finish many tasks a seed of beginning I sow!!

PS: We never know when world ends and when we really have to witness it but this poem just written randomly with a desire to finish so many pending things. Even if they are unfinished I would be glad I wrote this!!:)
