Sleep: Thursday, 28th December, 2006, 23:20

People think of different things so they drift off to sleep. Like, Vibha thinks of a candle somewhere far in a room; she imagines herself looking at it endlessly until she falls asleep. Mmm.. I wonder what others think!

Well, when I want to drift off to sleep, and I’m not sleepy, I think of a story. A story, where I’m the main character, and it’s usually sort of a fairy tale where only good things happen. It’s usually about a ‘perfect’ life that a person can have. Beauty, fame, good-will, success, happiness, peace, undiminished wealth - all these things are contained in the story of the life of the person (me, of course). I’m not a very good story-creator, but as long as it makes me drift to sleep, I don’t care, and that happens when I can no longer continue the story further.

Umrao Jaan

One of the most boring movies I've seen. Music is good though. I like Salaam, Pehle Pehel, and Agle Janam Mohe. Not that the others are bad. Alka Yagnik is at her best in this movie. Aishwarya Rai looks awesome, but her dances are awful. Every time she danced, my head said "Madhuri would have been perfect. Where is she?". Ash's voice reminded me of (I think it resembles) Rekha. I couldn't watch more than 1 CD, so I didn't watch enough to comment about Abhishek's performance. I guess it's ok. He's improved a lot. Thank God, I didn't watch this movie in the cinema hall. There are a thousand better things I can do, than watch this stupid chewing-gum movie.
