Metrified

adj. composed in a poetic meter

..and thats exactly what the film was... no, i don't enjoy poetry, but i liked the word connection... and the film 'Life in a Metro' .... just wish there was more of irfan khan ..as always, this isn't a review, but there was another connection in the beginning minutes of the movie, that i thought was very funny..
Sharman Joshi (why can't we see more of that guy) gives out his uncle's apartment to his different bosses for their quickie trysts with secretaries... sharman's neighbours dont get to see the different faces though, their only point of contact is the common wall... and every day, they wait till the night's peformance ends, so they can go to sleep...
one day, when there are multiple users, they begin to sleep when the second performance starts.. and the wife remarks that her husband should find out what sharman eats...
and definitely in context (though unwittingly) the producer's name appears on the marquee - ronnie screwvala

until next time, poetry in motion ....

Aqua said...

can't wait to watch metro! have read so many good reviews. btw that sharman joshi bit sounds like a rip off of the movie 'the apartment"...hmmm..i guess even the best directors in bollywood can't resist doing an "anu mallick" on hollywood fillums.
