Mistake 1: Cajoling my colleagues to make them book tickets for a movie by the name- Drona

Mistake 2: Actually making it to the movie on time in spite of losing one of the tickets at the counter

Mistake 3: Not walking out of the movie during the savior Intermission

A very very measly question to Mr./Ms. Godlie Behl (I am not too sure about the gender of the director, am confused by the name)- When you were making the movie, did you ever think of how people like us are going to stand the agony? I did try my best to get in touch her/him. Since, he/she is being stoned by people in Mumbai; I shall limit my stoning to the maami circle with a telecon

The Venerable PM: Ok.. I’ll put it in simple terms, what is the story all about??

Goldie Behl: Its good fighting over evil!! The Hero saving the world from the Asura

TVPM: What is new about it?? I actually feel like I just watched a movie that has been ripped of from Harry Potter and Mummy

GB: Wathdaa… That’s an outrageous accusation. I’ve used WFX Effects to recreate such phenomenal action sequences… Maybe you watched the movie in a tiruttu DVD…You need an eye to relish such magic

TVPM: If you are talking about the ‘Drona’ being tortured by his aunt till he was grown..sorry boss..people are already bored with Harry Potter. And the sandstorm…er.. sorry to badly need a fresh creative team

GB: Aan.. All you oldies keep complaining!! Never understanding the new generation!!

TVPM: Ok!! that why Jaya Bacchan (As AB’s mommy) is turned into a stone within 10 min of her intro? Any which ways..why do you guys keep giving her a sad song for welcoming her beta. I mean..she needs dialogues too.

GB: Er..Can we move on to another question? I still have other calls waiting.

TVPM: Really?? Fine.. what happened to the other characters in the story… If my memory is correct, AB had 10 dialogues in all, Priyanka Chopra had 5 ( the other 5 were just repetitions of the earlier 5), Kay Kay Menon had 15 (Thank God for that) and of course Jaya Mata having the 2 lines, and that horse of the Drona neighed 8 times… Were you ever planning on introducing someone else…?? Or was it that you ran of money for the rest of the cast??

GB: Allo..Alllo…Can’t hear you maami..No signal here….beep beep beep

TVPM: Shoot… Spineless no..he had the spine to put in money for this loser of a movie!!

Anyways… I was lost with questions by the end of the movie.. like.. Priyanka Chopra ( the bodyguard of AB) rides a really swanky car..but still fights with a sword?? You actually have some 20 min of action packed car chase in a movie where the hero is running around in search of Amrit? We also spend another 20 min during the Jaya turning into stone sequence..AB thinking all through whether to touch or not touch his mom..YAWN!!!

So..i don’t even have to get to the verdict part. Yes..the effects were aweshum..out of the world..Kay Kay Menon tried his best to justify his character…But, a horse running on top of a train just doesn’t work with me. If you guys do mind listening to this old hag, please give this a miss- Krissshhhhh was much much better!!!!!
