My movie marathon – I

I am graduate TA. If you don’t realize what that could involve,   check out this and many other PhD comics. This weekend is one of those when I have to grade a huge bunch of papers and it can get pretty crazy! My way to survive through it is to watch the crappiest of Indian movies! Crappiest – cos I don’t want to pay too much attention to the movies and slow down my grading; and Indian – because they are rich in song and dance and I can easily skip minutes of the movie at the same time. I have these movie marathons almost all the weekends that I have to grade and I usually dont review them as they are not anything worth mentioning (The number of movies can be anywhere between 1 – 4). But hey, I can at least make a list of not-watch movies! So here is my first movie marathon list! Its Saturday morning (Ok, almost mid-day)  here and it will go on until tomorrow nite, so stay tuned.


Chithiram Pesuthadi (Tamil)

Cast: Naren, Bhavana, et. al.,

Director: Myshkin

Bad movie, the acting made me laugh, and very amateur. Why did I think this was a hit? Anyway, who cares!



Kaminey (Hindi)

Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and many more..

Director: Vishal Bharadwaj

Awesome plot! A good thriller from Bollywood in a while! Superb chemistry between Shahid and Priyanka. It din’t help the grading, though!




Cast: Abhishek Bacchan, Priyanka Chopra, and others

Director: Rohan Sippy

Same plot as before – story of double and triple crossing! But a let down. Fun to watch, if you ignore the flaws!




So that was three movies this weekend! It would have been more if not for the India-Ireland Cricket match, a few epsiodes of Battlestar Galactica, and an ancient episode of Doctor Who! Finally I am done with this weeks’ grading and so ready to go to sleep.

Good Night!
