The Dostana Disorder!

November 10, 2009

I was enjoying a pleasant Saturday evening in solitude all by myself when I got a call from Mr. AT.

AT: What plans for Saturday evening?

OG: Nothing much.

AT: Great! I have a brainwave!!!!!

OG: ok ok ok!!! Which film do you want to see??

This Mr. AT dude is actually a very simple kid at heart!! And his interests are very few. I cannot believe that he is getting engaged in exactly 15 days!!!!!

AT: Do you want to see the film “Couples Retreat”? Mr. HPU and I wanna go.

OG: Are you sure that it is a good film? I hope it is not one of those stupid over the top mushy films.

AT: I saw the trailer. It seemed good.

OG: And the music is by Rahman; His first Hollywood venture. Ok, let us go for it.

And so, in the cold evening for the 10 PM show, our party of three; we reach the nearby theatre to watch the film.

OG: Can I have three tickets for the 10 PM show of “Couples Retreat”?

The pretty girl on the other side of the counter gave me a strange look.

The pretty girl: Do you want two tickets?

OG: Nope, I want three.

With a raised eyebrow, she gives us the tickets. And so, we entered the hall. On entering the hall, all I could see was couples seated in all the niche corners of the hall!!

It reminded me of “The Reclamation Area” in Bandra in its heydays. Just like how the couples used to give us dirty looks there, we got quite a few here as well! 😉

A cosmological study of the faces in the theatres betrayed many a diverse expressions. Some of them (conservative type) were shocked to see three guys together. Many of them (liberal folks) were quaintly interested and we felt as uncomfortable as the lion which is on display in the MGM casino in Las Vegas. There was not a single non-couple group in the entire theatre apart from us!!!!!

Anyways, the film was decent enough and I learnt another valuable lesson that day; not to EVER go for this genre of films here in America!!!!!! Definitely not with guys!!!!!!

One just lives and learns! 😛

      I’ll never venture to such movies…..
      OG: you you… not so romantic types 😛 great!!! sols should learn a lesson from u 😛 tee hee

      • November 10, 2009 7:24 am

        Of course, I am a romantic at heart….but never venture into unknown areas….if I am going for a movie, I would’ve read the review written by 101 ppl, seen the trailer and got movie reviews from close frnds and then and only then, go to a theatre !!!! 🙂
        OG: I on the other hand, tend to watch almost every film that releases!!!!!!!! tee hee 😛 😛 😛
        So, that I avoid such episodes, like the one you had !!!! 🙂
        OG: what is life without a few episodes 😉

        • November 10, 2009 7:42 am

          Only Rajnikanth movies, I watch without reading the review. It sure will be a great entertainer. 🙂
          OG: YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have the “3” rule to his films!!! have to watch his films three times in the theatre!!

      Some time back seeing Gerard Butler on ‘The ugly Truth’ I changed my plans at the theater and pleaded my brother and husband to watch that one instead of some action movie they had tickets for. So we exchanged tickets and went inside to find just few men of course with their gf/wife. Then the girls in the front row started crying at every mush scene and my brother was so irritated. Though the guys enjoyed the jokes, they still hated the mush part of the movie. Both tease me that I cry at movies unnecessarily. 😦
      OG: crying in films is a sin!!!!!!!!!!! 😛 😛 😛 😛 tee hee 😛 😛
      your bro would have been seriously pissed that day!

      I have now cursed my brother – ‘may he get a MUSH queen as his wife’. 😈
