Smokers, be alert!!


This, my fellows, is a ceiling wallpaper in a smoking room in Mumbai!! What a way to campaign against smoking!! Guys, the average age of a smoker has been estimated as 35. Recently, billionaire Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg have launched a $500 million venture for the anti-smoking campaign. India and China are the main targets of the campaign!!

Smoking is one of the ways to commit a slow suicide, they say. True to the words, tobacco is a slow poison. The Indian govt. is tightening rules as of late and those who smoke publicly will be prosecuted. This was already quoted, but will be implemented effectively from next month onwards.

All the cigarette manufacturing companies are facing a crisis and are on the verge of shutting down and concentrating on other domestic products. So, smokers, please stop smoking and lead a healthy and long life. Don't regret the short span of life later when you need it the most. Until then, its me Chella, signing off... Bye... :)

Nightmares at the workplace!!



Hi guys and girls!! I'd like to share my experience at my workplace today. I work for an ITES firm, which is not exactly a call centre job(The 'ITES' word makes all of us think that its a call centre job!) or something, its a job related to e-book creation and bookmarking. Yea, i know its a sick kinda job! But, what makes it even more sicker is that I'm put in the bench as of now since the project is not fully approved yet!

Guys, being in a bench is not the worst thing to happen. It'll actually be the best thing to happen at the beginning because you'll have a whirlwind of a time at the workplace since you'll not be having work at all and have all the luxuries at the company's cost! But guys, seriously, as the days proceed, the same jobless days seem like hell! Going by experience, i was fascinated by the initial perks that the company was able to give me and I was like "How can a company earn so much just out of bookmarking stuff!!". But, slowly, my liking towards the job started fading. Actually my position is like: I'm in a job, but still i'm jobless!!

Being jobless at a workplace can be fun if you've got other activities like browsing through the internet, and that too if you're a blogger, you'll have a nice time out there! But, there's a check her too!! All the websites have been banned and all you are left with is the crappy company website!! Wtf are you gonna do with the company website!! I mean, yea, u can use that for internal purposes, but banning even google is the height of security!!

Ha, but we're criminals!! We don't give up that easily, do we?? So, i started accessing a few so called "company-banned" websites with a few proxy server websites like www.anonymizer.ru and www.ninjaproxy.com, www.kproxy.com!! But, the company fellows have put up a filter which restricts words 'webproxy.jsp' in the URL bar which appears as a result of searching the target website from the proxy server website. So, i opted on for web tunneling websites which use the 'doPost()' method of http and prevents the server from tracking down filtered words. One such website is "www.butterflyburger.com".

But, the IE keeps on showing security measures as its a secure tunneling protocol and by the time it finishes displaying all the messages, ta da!! The IE hangs and closes itself down!! How sick... :( The only purpose for which i'm going for the job is to get a salary and if that too gets crapped up, I'll quit the job and rather stay home! Atleast, i can catch up with some good sleep!!

So guys, my word is that please don't stay long in a company which offers you no scope for development and keeps you jobless despite being in a job. Following what i say, i'll quit the job next month!! Post your comments if u have similar kinds of experiences!! Love you all!! Its me, Chella signing off! Bye:)

Serial Blasts Rock India - What on Earth is going on???


Here we go again with the second round of serial blasts in Ahmedabad, Gujarat after yesterday's serial blasts is Bangalore. We don't know what is the motivation behind these serial blasts, but they continue to rock one city after another.

Yesterday, the IT hub of India, Bangalore was shocked by multiple blasts killing two people and injuring at least four, the first such attack after nine bombs went off in the northern city of Jaipur in May.

The devices were equivalent to the intensity of two grenades and timers were used, police commissioner Shankar Bidari said in the southern Indian city today. Television pictures showed police with dogs investigating the scene of the blasts that blew out windows and damaged walls.

Terrorist attacks in Indian cities have killed more than 140 people in the past year as multiple explosive devices strapped to bicycles, hidden under cinema seats and near market stalls have targeted civilians. While the government typically blames foreign- trained terrorists, most of the attacks are unsolved.

And today, seventeen serial blasts in crowded market areas in the space of 20 minutes rocked the Gujarat capital on Saturday night leaving eighteen killed and injuring above 100.The low-intensity explosions occurred at eight areas of Maninagar, Isanpur, Narol circle, Bapunagar, Hatkeshwar and Sarangpur bridge, Sarkej and Odhav and created a wave of panic.

Television channels claimed they got an e-mail from little known outfit called 'Indian Mujahideen' to say they were responsible for Saturday's blasts. The same outfit had claimed responsibility for the blasts in Jaipur and Uttar Pradesh.


But, the satire is that all these blasts are linked with politics! The new reads - Two BJP led states have been bombed by terrorists!! Lets beat it guys!! How can they come to such a crazy conclusion that it is linked to politics??!! You may say that BJP people might have been in a fury after losing the trust vote to the UPA govt on June 22. But, that doesn't mean that its going to bomb India for that!! And that too in a region that it is ruling!! They have the brains to know that if they are linked to such an incident even in the slightest manner, they'll never be able to step into the political regime once again!

This is purely a terrorist attack by some group called Indian Mujahideen. Lo! Here they are again to spoil the name of the Muslim Community again!! The mail reads "In The Name Of Allah"!! What a bunch of cheap bastards!! Because of them only, Muslims are having such a bad name all over the world.

And think of this - Is a terrorist going to think whether to attack a BJP-led govt state or a UPA-led govt state!! Nonsense!! They're psychos who'll target anyone, anyplace!! Its on our part to be alert and inform the police or security personnel if anything is found suspicious, atleast from now on. I think its crazy to link politics and terrorism. Yes, I do think of politicians as people who are bent on sucking the blood of common people!! But this is ridiculous!! Anyways, take care people, and please do drop in your comments on what you think about it. Until then, its me Chella signing off with a hope that these horrible activities come to a halt. Bye :)

Barack Obama on The New Yorker Magazine Cover!!

It was really satirical of "The New Yorker" magazine officials to put up a picture of U.S. Democratic Presidential Candidate, Barack Obama on the cover page of its latest issue with himself posing as a muslim and his wife as a terrorist holding an AK-47 in her hand, where the flag of the United States of America is burning at the fireplace under Osama Bin Laden's photograph!!!

Barack Obama reacted furiously at the cartoon which he commented "is not funny"!! The cover page was designed with the view that Barack Obama is a muslim claimed by the Republicans. The presidential hopeful's campaigners said most readers will find the New Yorker magazine's front cover "tasteless and offensive, and we agree".

Muslims all over the world are being meted out such cruel treatment, guys. A muslim doesn't get a visa easily, he's always checked and double checked and so on! Shahrukh was once interrogated at U.K. airport for hours together just becuase his name had a surname, "Khan"!! Kamal Hassan was interrogated for sporting a beard which made the authorities suspect that he was a muslim!! Just because a few muslim bastards are terrorists, why is the whole community being treated so badly???

Now, this satirical photo is reminiscent of the treatment that muslims are being offered, nothing else!! But the New Yorker stood by its cover. It said: "The fantastical images shows them for the obvious distortions they are. Satire is part of what we do."

The war between the Khans!!




Here we go again guys, the Khans of Bollywood are into war once again!! If it was Aamir and SRK in the first round, now its SRK and Salman into the next round!! The winners of these two rounds will enter the finals and fight to finish and gain the "Khan no.1 contender"!! Lolz... Other Khans are invited too!! Saif!! Where r u???!!!

Here's the link to the Story online:
http://www.nidokidos.org/salman-and-srk-fight-katrinas-birthday-t23347.html

The story is like this: It was Katrina's birthday party and Salman himself had personally invited Shahrukh to the party. But, Salman seemed to be on a high after drinking. He provoked Shahrukh to a wordy brawl. What made him do so was SRK's denial to come to his show "Dus Ka Dum". Now, Salman had agreed to be a part of a "Kaun Banega Crorepati" episode and also agreed to shake legs with thim in Om Shanti Om. But, now his obligation had been turned down. He accused Shahrukh of being selfish as he "maintained relations only till he needs it". He also said that his show "Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hai" was a big flop. Now Shahrukh also got provoked by his words and he retorted that his show "Dus Ka Dum" was a bigger flop and nobody watched it. Salman continued saying "Keep quiet or I'll beat you up here itself". Shahrukh retorted "Yeah, try raising your hands on me, and i'll beat you black and blue in front of your own friends and in your party".

They didn't stop until Aamir Khan intervened between them as the fight got more nastier. Finally Gauri Khan had to pull away Shahrukh from the party and Katrina had to stop Salman!! Aamir Khan tried hard to mediate between the two. It was quite surprising as Shahrukh and Aamir were not on very good terms after Aamir's nasty comments on Shahrukh such as "Ask Shahrukh how it feels to be no.2" and naming his dog as Shahrukh and then publishing a blog saying "Shahrukh is licking my feet and i'm feeding him biscuits".

Aamir has even expressed his interest in working with Shahrukh for a movie soon if he gets any such offers!! But Shahrukh is usually a very calm guy who replied very gently to Aamir's nasty comments. Can't understand how he got into the brawl!

But guys, lets face it. Salman shouldn't have insulted his own guest. Or atleast he could've kept him uninvited!! This shows that there is a lot of heat and competition for securing the no.1 position in the film industry. But, this should not be openly expressed this way. It looks so cheap.

Thinking about it, Shahrukh and Salman were very good friends sometime ago!! But now, they're fighting! Lets hope their relation gets normal and they agree to help each other in future. And lets hope the stars stop criticizing each other openly. Until then, its me Chella signing off!! C u guys... :)

What the hell's going on in India???


The inflation went sky-rocketing, and reports came pouring in that the UPA govt did nothing to curb the inflation. Instead, the reports read, "Govt. interested only in N-Deal". This gave them a total "Bad Guys" image among all the people in the country. Despite knowing this, they decided to go with the nuclear deal. All the opposition parties and even their allies decided to go against them. Still the UPA govt stood by their decision to go with the deal, no matter what.

Then, reports began pouring in that India is on the verge of nuclear fuel depletion and all the reactors here are retaining only half their original strength and will lead to a breakdown soon if adequate steps are not taken in time. Prakash Karat, CPI[M] general secretary is the person who vigorously launched the anti-UPA campaign. His comic slogans("Congress ka haath America ke Saath") struck a chord with the local people.

But, in a very short time, people were able to understand why the Congress is so intent on completing the deal. The logic was very simple - Will any govt in India, which is always concerned about holding its helm over the nation forever, be interested in doing something which will affect its position forever? Obviously, no. Which quite effectively points out that, for the first time in Indian politics, some organization is striving hard to do good to the nation. The highlighted points in this deal is that this deal will help India end its nuclear fuel crisis and lower its dependencies on perishable sources of energy thus helping in its limited usage and reducing the rate of Inflation. Also, it will put India on the list of top nations and will have its say in the international arena.

But, it also has its own negatives.
The Indian politicians never understood the intent of the Americans. Americans wanted to contain Indian nuclear ambition through a treaty and then use that precedence to contain other friendly nations’ nuke ambitions.

There is also another interest. America expects that India will buy close to $100 billion worth nuclear reactors from America. No one knows what India promised Dick Cheney and his corporate insiders. Russians expect India to buy the reactors from them.

The biggest problem is that India has created a situation where her indigenous nuclear research can be challenged. India cannot have its own individual fuel processing unit. So, even if India can generate its own Thorium fuel supply, it cannot make use of i because there's a clause in the deal stating that it should not have a nuclear fuel processing unit. Moreover, there's another clause stating that the U.S. will setup their own processing units in India and use them, but Indians cannot make use of them.

The Americans may still challenge India. They want to contain India’s nuclear ambition. Saddam in eighties received chemical warfare technologies from America to fight Iran. But, what happened to Saddam's fate at the end.

Thinks guys, America is one nation which would not allow any other nation to come out as a superpower. Though, it may temporarily address the two surging problems: reprocessing of spent fuel and assured nuclear fuel supplies for the lifetime of a reactor, in the long run, our country is at a huge loss.

But, the UPA govt is smart in convincing people to make them think their way. And they took the path of "we're doing good to the nation and we're not concerned about our govt failing in the next election"! Wow, now this is what I call real politics. Putting a mask of goodness doesn't hide the ugly intentions. Otherwise why would Barack Obama, U.S. Democratic Presidential candidate show interest towards a nation which is in no way related to him, lest it benefits him someway!

But, so much has happened in the one day-July22. Unexpected events took place at a fiery pace. UPA winning the trust vote at the Loksabha was less talked, but the three MPs from BJP made history as they openly put forth the bribe issue to the Loksabha speaker Somnath Chatterjee. All hell broke out loose yesterday. A vote being purchased at 3 crores for which 1 crore(2.5 million USD)is the advance amount!!! Waah!! Three persons have openly confessed it. So thinkhow many have gobbled up the amount!!

The situation in India is getting worser day by day. Whether this bribing issue is true, whether this N-deal will do good to the nation, whether the UPA govt will secure its stand in the next elections!! Everything is in the pipeline. Lets hope India gets the best! Whatever happens to these politicians, who's bothered anyway!! This is me, Chella signing off till then, bye guys! :)

Kismat Konnection Not So Impressive As Shahid's previous two ventures

Kismat Konnection is one of those feel-good NRI movies in recent times. Only that the charm that it possessed in the first half of the movie is totally missing in the second half of the movie. This movie is definitely the start of a different genre of movies in Hindi like "Bruce Almighty", "What Women Want", but the film takes a formulaic approach in the second half which is spoil-sport! I mean, the director shows u a glimpse of his talent with the breezy and different screenplay in the first half, then y not take the untrodden path??? Y take the same boring path thats tried and tested???

As for the story, Canada-based Raj Malhotra (Shahid Kapoor) was an exceptional architecture student, such that his classmates had his face put on the cover of a faux Time magazine certain that this would indeed happen within a few years. Burdened with these expectations, Raj hunts for work with friend and partner Hiten (the usual hero’s sidekick stereotype who is less good-looking and less bright) played by Vishal Malhotra. The two try hard, but don’t get a break.

Raj realises his bad luck is unrelenting. So luckless is he that water runs out when he’s taking a shower (and he uses the water bottle from the fridge), his card wont’ be accepted at the ATM when he needs it the most, the lift won’t work when he’s late for a meeting.

There are some really endearing scenes like the one where the two buffoons are going to meet an important person for work and Raj tells his partner Hiten: “act cool. Only we know we are broke.” In a rather touching moment, Raj compares himself to his less capable college-mates who are doing far better than him. He needs “just one chance” but has now given up his fight against his kismat. This is where the fun begins (and ends pretty quickly, too).

He sees an advertisement of one Haseena Bano, only to find out that she’s an eccentric, gypsy fortune-teller (Juhi Chawla, dependably chirpy). She tells him that a lucky charm will come his way that can help resurrect his kismat. A few chance meetings later, he realises that this charm is a person, a girl Priya (Vidya Balan) he keeps meeting under the unlikeliest circumstances. He is determined to change the first few not-so-pleasant meetings to more agreeable ones and asks her out for coffee the next time her car hits him.

Priya helps out at a community centre for aged people (Lage Raho Munnabhai, remember?) and requests Raj to help in her fight against a new mall coming up. Coincidence—this is the project that Raj was pitching for.

The romance between Shahid and Vidya is wonderful to watch, especially their flirtations when she teasingly says she wants a 6-foot tall guy or when she accidentally catches him looking at her. But that’s where the party ends. Barring these moments, the second half is a disappointment. Clich├ęs abound leading to a finale full of emotional melodrama and a preachy monologue that leaves you feeling zilch.


The love triangle that the director introduces in the second half of the story is the most sickening part of the movie. Then the third person is shooed away from the screen by giving a "Bad" conduct certificate!! The chemistry between the lead pair is worth a watch. The song sequences are quite good, especially the "Aai Pappi" dance number.

And Shahid is as good-looking as ever!! Long hair or short hair! He's superb hero material dudes!! Though Vidya does not look like his perfect match like Shahid-Amrita pair in Vivah, she's cool and not irritating like Kareena!!(Sorry guys, i really hate Kareena, don't mind me!!)

In conclusion, the movie is watchable in the first half, but sags in the later half, Shahid fans can see the movie just for his great looks and the chemistry between Vidya and Shahid is a must watch!! So, enjoy the movie guys, its me Chella signing off!!! Cya...

The big delay in the date of joining for software concerns!!


Hi guyz and galz! As i mentioned in my previous blog, i'm an IT graduate from SSN College Of Engineering, Chennai. I passed out of college just this year some 10 days ago. I'd like to share my views on my college placement with you all. We had some good placements in SSN for my senior batches. Mind you all. Senior batches! They got bulk placements in CTS, Infy, HCL and many other leading companies. But, with our batch, luck played a very bad game, or I must say, the college played a very bad game, introducing a new rule saying that each company can take a maximum of only 60 students and not more. So, with great difficulty, we all stumbled one company after another, each of us getting placed in different companies, and some of them losing their opportunity in spite of being well equipped with soft skills required for getting a job. Even if they were eligible, the company was not able to take them up cause if there are some 75-80 students on the employers list whom he'd like to take, he has to randomly axe down a few candidates! (Placement needs a loooooooooottttttttt of luck dudes!!)

But, even after so much agony, most of us got placed in one company or other. Now, its time for us to face yet another crisis. Many of my fellow graduates who've got placed must be knowing, we've not been given the date of joining yet! And its getting delayed day-by-day, week-by-week and month-by-month. Dunno if it soon will become an "year-by-year" situation!! If we ring up the HRs to ask "whats cooking!!", they don't have a proper reply for us. Experts say that the main reason behind this is the fluctuation of the Rupee value against the US Dollar. Some say that companies call on the basis of "How-flourishing-the-business-is"!!! As of now, the gossip mills say that TCS will call the fresh recruits by November, HCL by September-October time, CTS in January 2009!, Caritor in February-March 2009!!, Infosys by August-September, Wipro by November. But, the thing of worry is that these are not confirmed schedules of the date-of-joining. Though there are a few lucky people who have been placed in iNautix and Mphasis EDS, who have already been recruited!!

So, guys, we all are facing the same problem! Dunno how long this wait will go on!! But, we have to wait if we want a strong foothold in the industry... All the best for all of them who are in this "waiting" bandwagon! Hope u get recruited soon(if u want!! Otherwise we can enjoy the good life of eating and sleeping for a few more months!!) Catch u later guyz, its me, Chella, signing off till then! Bye... :)

The most active Job site -- Monster.com!!!


Hi there guyz and galz! I'm an IT graduate from SSNCE and was searching for a job after completing my degree. Tell you what, finding a full time job on your own can get sickening, dudes. Long queues, registration, sweating and loads more of bullshit!! And at the end of the day, the people at the company say "Please submit your resumes and we'll call you shortly if the job profile matches our requirement"!! Can you imagine! Traveling all the way to the company to submit a profile and hear a crappy line we-will-call-you-later. Nonsense. What a waste of time! If they wanted to get our profile, they could've done it online,right!

For submitting our profile online where it may attract some good employers, we need to register ourselves at a good job portal. Obviously, you'd be knowing many job portals like Naukri.com, freshshersworld.com and many others. But, friends, going by experience, i tell u, monster.com is the best existing and active job portal. Registering in job portals have their own advantages. Some of them are - the employers know whom to approach, they conduct a phone interview and get an idea about the candidate, so they can call them for further interview process or decide to axe them at that point itself(its a lot better to be rejected in a phone interview than go all the way and get rejected in person). And if you keep your resume updated, you definitely stand a better chance of finding a good job, whatever your field of specialization maybe, whether IT or ITES or port operations or agricultural engineering or anything else.

Call center jobs are available aplenty. I had registered in monster some 10 days ago and had been receiving about 10 mails and 3-4 calls per day from various firms inquiring if i was interested in attending the interview. Now, I've found myself a job in Hurix Systems, an IT services provider. So guys, if you are on the look out for a good job, definitely register in monster. Its worth it. Until then, its me, Chella, signing off... C ya... All the best guys!! :)

Will Shahid's Kismat become even brighter after Kismat Konnection??!!

Link for the Kismat Konnection songs:

http://rs53.rapidshare.com/files/124557917/Kismat_Konnection__2008_Best_Quality_till_now.rar

So, finally, the Shahid Kapoor-Vidya Balan starrer Kismat Konnection is going to be released on 18th July! There is a lot of hype for the movie as it is supposed to be a hattrick for Shahid who's been on a high after two blockbusters Vivaah and Jab We Met and is also the comeback movie for Aziz Mirza, the veteran director of Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman.

Will his kismat (luck) stays with him through the release of "Kismat Konnection," sans Kareena?

For Shahid-Kareena made a fantastic pair in "Jab We Met". Will his pairing with Vidya Balan in "Kismat Konnection" work equally well for the both?

"Comparison is uncalled-for, because both 'Jab We Met' and 'Kismat Konnection' have approached romance in different ways. All three are good artists, but there are roles in which some fit and others do not. Vidya fits in the role of Priya she has done in my film," Mirza said.

The other attractions of the movie are the boisterous presence of Juhi Chawla and the voiceover given by Shah Rukh Khan.

Moreover, there are the gossip mills churning about Shahid and Vidya’s romantic affair going on since the stars are meeting a lot after shooting and are spotted together at many places! Shahid commented “I’m happy if the rumours about me and Vidya make the producers get their money’s worth”!

The music is good and the trailors are quite impressive. The movie is a comedy-cum-fantasy kind of script with Juhi Chawla playing the crystal ball reader! So lets hope good for Shahid and wish that his Kismat continues with “Kismat Konnection”!!

Wipro chairman Aziz Premji on Reservation!


“I think we should have job reservations in all the fields. I completely support the PM and all the politicians for promoting this. Let's start the reservation with our cricket team. We should have 10 percent reservation for Muslims. 30 percent for OBC, SC/ST like that. Cricket rules should be modified accordingly.

The boundary circle should be reduced for an SC/ST player. The four hit by an OBC player should be considered as a six and a six hit by an OBC player should be counted as 8 runs.. An OBC player scoring 60 runs should be declared as a century.

We should influence ICC and make rules so that the pace bowlers like Shoaib Akhtar should not bowl fast balls to our OBC player.

Bowlers should bowl maximum speed of 80 km/ hour to an OBC player.

Any delivery above this speed should be made illegal.

Also we should have reservation in Olympics. In the 100 meters race, an OBC player should be given a gold medal if he runs 80 meters.

There can be reservation in Government jobs also. Let's recruit SC/ST and OBC pilots for aircrafts which are carrying the ministers and politicians (that can really help the country...)

Ensure that only SC/ST and OBC doctors do the operations for the ministers and other politicians. (Another way of saving the country...)

Let's be creative and think of ways and means to guide INDIA forward...
Let's show the world that INDIA is a GREAT country.
Let's be proud of being an INDIAN...

May the good breed of politicians long live...."

Ha ha... Such is his sarcasm!

Here come the "Three Idiots"!!


So, finally the cast for the Chetan Bhagat novel "Five Point Someone" inspired movie, "3 Idiots" has been finalised!! The novel was a massive hit among the youth and had become a rage! Chetan Bhagat became famous all over! The story is very peppy and deals with three IITians who goof up their lives but somehow, towards the end, come out of it unscathed.

Films targeted at the youth never fail to get the cash register ringing at the box office! Moreover, the casting crew is the same as "Rang De Basanti". Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Sharman Joshi play the lead roles for the characters Ryan, Hari and Alok! So, we can surely expect a blockbuster with veteran actors into the movie! Kareena Kapoor is taking the female lead. And Boman Irani will play professor Cherian!



Ryan's character is pivotal, he is the happy-go-lucky and peppy character who's Hari's mentor! And guess what! Aamir Khan's playing the character of Ryan! He'll be perfect for the role... It'll be just like his role in Dil Chahta Hai, of course, the fun quotient will be much more higher this time around! Hari and Neha are the love birds in the movie. But i guess Siddharth would've fit in better into the character, Hari, what say guys!

The movie is being produced by veteran producer, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and being directed by Rajkumar Hirani of Munnabhai series fame! There was a little trouble in the beginning as SRK was intent on producing it, but things got resolved soon and Vidhu sir took the helm of production. Guess the movie will be a blockbuster! Keep your fingers crossed guys!

A perfect break for Imran Khan!! Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na...


So.... Here comes Imran Khan, who's gotta perfect break just like his uncle, Aamir Khan had got in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak...!! And really, what a movie to start a career!

The storyline is quite simple... Jai(Imran) and Aditi(Genelia) are very close friends, so close that everybody including their friends and Aditi's parents think they're in love... But, they make it clear to everybody that they do not love each other and are nothing but close friends. Then, things take a turn and they both put up an agreement to find out the right pair for each other. Aditi fixes up a girl for Jai, which works out in a successful relationship between Jai and the girl with whom he was hooked up... But, its then that she realizes that she loves Jai, but not able to tell him because of her ego and the situations that arise. In the meanwhile, Aditi starts dating another guy who's an absolute playboy. But, she does it only for the sake of forgetting Jai. Jeealousy creeps in into Jai as well as Aditi and they realize that they really love each other.

The treatment and the screenplay is refreshing. There are some subtle moments and funny moments all the way through the movie. Nasseeruddin Shah's delight on seeing his Rathore son fulfill the conditions for being called a Rathore is a treat to watch. And not to mention guest appearances by Sohail Khan and Arbaaz Khan! They tickle your funny bone whenever they come into the scene! :) Not to mention about Genelia! She is as cute as ever! Finally, she also has made a noteworthy debut in Hindi!

Music is a delight to listen! Maestro A.R. Rahman knows the pulse of the youth too well to make any mistakes! The climax is noteworthy and quite comical... The whole movie gives u a feel-good warmth and you walk out of the theatre with a broad smile...! :) Hats off to the whole crew, especially Aamir Khan for delivering one more quality product to the film industry!
