Meditation

I came back yesterday after completing a 10-day Vipassana sit at the meditation retreat at Massachusetts. Needless to say, it was timely and a well-needed break. This was my fourth course in 10 years. Don’t just think about it, find time out of your busy schedule and go do the course. No ifs and buts…Just Do It ! (no pun intended…I am not wearing Nike’s shoes for the marathon).

I saw this movie y’day and liked it. I will not write a review as that is available all over the web. Here is my take on the movie

Pros
Watchable once
Abhishek, Mithunda, Roshan Seth and Madhavan have done good roles
Mithun as Ramnath Goenka is very impressive
Its hard not to see the comparison between this and Dhirubhai Ambani and his Vimal and Reliance ventures
Bombay city is shown well
Its a feel good movie
Cons
Mallika Sherawat is hardly impressionable in her item number, given all the hype that was generated with her role in this movie
Vidya Balan’s role is wasted
Aishwarya thankfully does not try to act and so all is well
The song after Guru’s children are born is totally unnecessary
A R Rehman has provided no value addition to this movie unlike Mani’s earlier movies where his songs played a major part
Aishwarya Rai as a village girl and as Kokila Ben is unconvincing
I recommend you watch this movie but don’t expect an autobiography of Dhirubhai Ambani and you will not be disappointed.
