Movie Review | Ek Thi Daayan

Ek Thi Daayan is not a horror film. At best, it's an attempt at a horror film, and a pretty good attempt at that. The good things about this movie, are Konkona Sen Sharma's acting and a few scary scenes that have been shot really well, so they manage to scare you.

As far as the story is concerned, I was not impressed. It could be either because I expected more from a movie that was made by Vishal Bhardwaj, or it could be simply because the story wasn't that great. Or maybe it's the association with Balaji Telefilms. I'm not too sure.

Book Review | Dongri To Dubai

'Dongri to Dubai' by S. Hussain Zaidi, is not a new book, but I've read it only recently. Also, as a part of my 30 by 30 to-do list, I have decided to write a review of every book that I read. I have been lagging far behind in that aspect, so I thought it would be a good idea to get started. :)

'Dongri to Dubai' is the first non-fiction book that I have ever read. It is a narrative describing the beginning and growth of the Mumbai mafia and is a detailed account of the rise and fall of many a mafia leaders. But mainly it's the tale of one man who changed the face of Mumbai in spite of being far away.

30 by 30 Update | #9

Three and a half months into the new year and I was suddenly reminded of the 30 by 30 list I made and completely forgot about. Now I am known for making excuses but this time, my excuse is #9 on my list. That's right people, I got married. ;)

Okay, so that was two months ago which means I've had a lot of time to write/blog/get back to life as such, but you must know that I was born lazy and managing a house is a lot of work, the end result of which is tiredness, mental exhaustion and repulsion to every activity that may come under the category of "work" even if you love doing it.
