Chetan Kunte v/s NDTV

I have had a dismal evening courtesy the story that I first read on Desipundit and then covered on various blogs and condemned by various bloggers.

I would not like to go on the nitty-gritty of the situation right now but would ask you,as a reader,to click on the following link and check what other esteemed bloggers had to say of how NDTV used its might as a media conglomerate to overpower a blogger about NDTV's irresponsible media coverage during the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai.

Paris Hilton changes British PM

Image
Yep! That's what I wanted to say after reading what Paris Hilton had to say while launching her new TV show Paris Hilton's British best friend.

I'm sure many of you would be aware of Paris Hilton and her knowledge levels or lack of it for that matter.She however went a step further this time.

She thinks British PM and the address at 10 Downing Street has been taken over by chef Gordon Ramsay!Yep Gordon Ramsay of the Hell's Kitchen fame is the British PM as per the hotel heiress.

She was in London to promote the show and told reporters “I love Britain. London is my favourite city in the world.” But when asked if she knew the PM, she replied, “Yes, it’s Gordon Ramsay, isn’t it?"

And that's not the end of it.She has no clue what PINT means and/or what ESSEX is either.
"No, I’ve not heard of a pint — what it that? Is it beer?” is what she had to say.

I have to ask my readers now,do you know who the British PM is?Do Not Google!

Worst Hindi Lyrics of all times

Image
Remember those times where legendary artists like Sahir Ludhiyanvi,Anand Bakshi,Gulzar etc would produce memorable classics with their lyrics for classics like Mere dil mein aaj kya hai,Hum tum ek kamre mein band ho,Is mod se jaate hain to name a few.This does not go to show that all songs were with fabulous and memorable lyrics.

There have been instances where the lyrics have just made the song "memorable" but for the wrong reasons.Some of them are mentioned below and I tried to rank them in order of their annoyingly funny nature but wasn't able to do that as many of them are neck and neck.Remember,they are just the worst lyrics and not dependent upon their videos and/or music. So without further ado lets get on with it.

1.Main ladki pom pom (Hera Pheri) - This movie was hilarious and ironically same can be said for its music.Especially this song.God knows what the movie makers and lyricists had in mind when adding this song to the movie.Tabu trying to seduce Sunil Shetty…

FA Cup on Indian TV

Image
FA Cup is the premier competition for all clubs in England,which means not only the elite ones like Chelsea,Manchester United,Liverpool get to participate but even the lesser known like West Bromwich Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers who have been giving the Premiership sides a run for their money with the number of trophies won.

India has been a progressive football loving nation in recent times with Cricket still leading the way.(..by far!)ESPN and Star Sports had been the big daddies in broadcasting English and Spanish Leagues and UEFA Champions League in India.

Newly borns,Ten Sports and Neo Sports were not to be outdone as they came up with Serie A(Italian League),Bundesliga(German League),French League,Scottish League.Ten Sports also got the rights to broadcast Champions League in the Indian sub-continent which has been a disaster for me as a viewer with awful coverage and disastrous commentary service.Along with that,Zee Sports isn't available on TATA Sky so the choice of wa…

Slumdog Millionaire's success and Big B's views

Image
I'm sure everyone is aware of Slumdog Millionaire's stupendous success in Europe and America with awards at Golden Globes and nominations for the BAFTA awards and the expectancy for Oscars thereafter.If you aren't aware then click here.

What has created far greater media furor is not the movie itself but how Amitabh Bachchan criticised the movie on his blog and his comments have not gone down well with many of the film critics.



Amitabh Bachchan had earlier said :

"If SM projects India as Third World dirty under belly developing nation and causes pain and disgust among nationalists and patriots, let it be known that a murky under belly exists and thrives even in the most developed nations. Its just that the SM idea authored by an Indian and conceived and cinematically put together by a Westerner, gets creative Globe recognition. The other would perhaps not."


I do not agree with The Big B's views like many others.Am the kind of people who would call a spade,a spade…

Happy New Year..I'm Back!

First of all,Happy New Year to all of my remaining blog readers (..and other people who I would harass to read!) I know I'm VERY late in wishing everyone that but I have been lazy.(Others might say there were busy but why lie,right?)

Secondly,since I'm back and have time on my hands along with ideas for some posts up my sleeve so keep checking back to see updates or why not subscribe via RSS or Email
