That was hell lot to take in one episode than expected. When Owen said ” A massive storm is coming “, guess he failed to mention it was an (emotional )Storm . It seemed like Shonda Rhimes had pressed a fast forward button. It started with Alex consoling Joe after her fight with Jason. Then making us feel that Alex is about to kill Jason. Guess what, he has already landed up in hospital , brain bleeding…(Joe failed to mention that she had more than equally bruised him). The newbie craniofacial specialist ,Dr Lauren and Arizona behaving like school teens ,googling each other and finally ending up in bed after a successful operation . Jackson comparing Sloan with Lauren (I think writers were trying to tell viewers-‘Hey meet the female Sloan entering Calzona’s life’) . An unexpected proposal from Matthew to April reminded me of ‘Glee’ dancers , not to mention it was cute ones for crazy Kepner, leaving Jackson stormed . One happy moment!!!! , Grey’s baby is safe until next episode . Owen in a two minds whether to be sad or happy for Ethan, who finally united with his father. Richard proved himself ,no one can handle Bailey better than me …poor Ross he had his surgery ultimately. Alex and Joe story was a little disappointment , as they yet didn’t express their feelings . Next Episode is named as ‘A Perfect Storm’ …Spoilers are already out with speculations of whose life is about to end . Will Calzona survive their stormy relation ? What about Sofia? Will Owen and Cristina stop avoiding the baby talk ? Do you think Joe would go to jail ? What will happen to Meredith’s baby ? ….The storm is still not over . Well viewers wait for the next Thursday forecast.
To the Indians this is a character which is quite famous to you . To the NON-Indians this is ‘Raju Rastogi’ a famous hindi movie character from a blockbuster movie 3 idiots . The image attached to this blog is the scene where he is giving interview for an engineering job. He is in wheelchair because he tried to commit suicide ,rusticated by the principal due to indecency. Still he managed somehow to turn out for the interview .
The whole point in telling this was : During the interview when asked about his accident , he bluntly recited his suicidal fling and expressed his fears facing the interview . The panel got impressed by his honesty and straight way handed over his appointment letter. Reel and Real are different aspects. Before facing an interview starting from questions like ‘Tell me something about yourself’ to ‘where do you see yourself down the 5 year’ , the questions have to be answered in a very cautious and precise manner . A set of rules are followed to avoid a pitfall. But the fact is it should actually go in a flow how depicted in the movie. Really how much does the rules actually help us?
The more you try to be someone else , more complicated and unsure you feel about yourself. Many books are also written on body language . And the way human psychology is explained through it is spectacular . But sometimes sitting with your legs cross can plainly imply ,you comfortable sitting with the position . The formal attire is given a huge hue and cry. Definitely it throws a professional image and makes you feel entering a corporate world, On the contrary eminent people like Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs have flaunted themselves in their cool blue jeans .
If you be yourself (as a whole ) during the interview , the process could go more smoothly and scope for improvements might increase .
Guess the situation is quite hypocritical where some rules ought to be followed . As I got to face interviews in the forthcoming events , I would try my best to apply the mixture of the ethics and my ideologies . And ya for the bloggers who haven’t watched the movie , don’t waste time , endless popcorn wouldn’t suffice for it. Enjoy the fun !!!!
Of all the crime TV series i have watched , The Mentalist by far has continued to raise it’s bar, consistently . Jane had to come to terms with disappointment when he realized his list of 7 suspects is known to the clever Red John . Bob Kirkland was a nice trick . The deliberate scene of hand shake made us view him as prime suspect . But he did broke into his dome to collect all the evidence. Is he one of the accomplice of Red John ? Who could have possibly reached his head and shattered his only good memory ? There are many speculations on the internet with Jane being the Red John . Is he really that dark ? Does dark Jane really exist ? Bruno Heller is one hell of a creator. Season 6 is far way to come but the theories of Red John are already in high gear.
After watching this episode ,The first thing i was eager to watch was The Next Promo. The emotional confusions in everyone’s relations can change the whole picture of next season . It is getting more worse , complicated and fun at the same time to wait for :what will be next???? . The episode started off usual with new patients arriving for emergency . The entry of new character Dr Lauren least expected. Alex avoiding Joe , Cristina confronting herself with changes in Owen , Arizona trying to control her emotions with the new doctor , April as usual confused between Matthew and Jackson and the whole hospital running to cheer up Bailey . Derek getting worried what if his son turns out ‘to be a monster’ was the sweetest worry of all . The S09E23 shows Meredith falling off the stairs . Will any character die in the finale ? Will Alex and Joe finally become a couple ? Will Arizona cheat on Callie in the next season ? Will April and Jackson revisit their romance ? Will Cristina and Owen break-up ? All thee questions are too much to take . I just hope the viewers are not disappointed this time with how they ended (Sloan and Lexie) story . Well I guess that’s for the viewers to wait and watch .
In the midst of all the breaking news about Boston blast or Bangalore blast , another rape of 5-year-old girl got a bit sidetracked. As having got hooked myself with law related shows and Sherlock classics ,it was time for my brain to take rest by watching something light-hearted movies. Hugh Grant didn’t let me sleep for two days after watching Notting Hill and Two Weeks Notice. Gosh !!!Who wouldn’t want a man like that??? But my mind soon wandered to the genre list of my mystery thriller movies .
I happened to come across a movie ‘A Time To Kill’ with good imdb rates , Inspired by John Grisham (first)novel so thought of watching it. It was half past 10 when I started watching the movie. The start of movie reminded me of all the rape victims being highlighted in the media and also those which aren’t.
The movie started with two white crooks (Billy Ray Cobb) and (Peter Williard) are having an errand with beer in their hand . They busted a shop owned by black community . Soon fleeting off in the car they happened to come across a young girl of 10(Tonya) carrying groceries. They hit her with beer can and raped her in one of the tormented ways which the world or rather Delhi has been witnessing everyday . She survived the wounds but how can a father’s wound be possibly healed. An inexperienced but reputed lawyer (Jake Briggance) heard about the incident and his heart melted out. Jake and girls father(Carl Lee Hailey) were acquaintance. He indirectly confronted him of planning to do something insane. When the two accused got bail hearing sanctioned Carl entered the courthouse and shot both of them dead. Jake just imagined the victim could have been his own daughter and the took case in his hands. The father chose not to plea guilty.
Elena Roark-as a liberal law student ready to help the lawyer for free was an interesting character. She helped in major twists and turns of the case. Jake had to go through many difficulties during the trial. A group of masked white men formed a group against the case and created disrupt and chaos in the city. His colleagues were threatened , his house was set on fire , and Elena’s clothes were ripped apart . He still didn’t quit. It was time to convince the jurors . But had given the hope of him getting life out of prison. He tried to convince Carl to accept a second degree murder. The father just told if you lose the case you are just one of them. He said –
“If you was on the jury what would it take to convince you to set me free ? . Now that’s what it is going to take to set me free. That’s how you will save my ass .That’s how you will save us both “
Jake narrated the little girls rape incident in slow story format , exploring all the details to the jurors, them closing their eyes and just added a last effective sentence after the speech :“Imagine she being white “..Alas!!!! , It’s a movie he was declared innocent and set free.
It would be so fascinating to imagine all real life cases getting convicted in a 3 hour screen roll. But reel is NEVER real :tons of case being pending , endless debates on capital punishment , with case soon been forgotten on arrival of fresh lawsuits. The old offends are gone but not healed during the time.
I think the time had come in 96′ or much before when such movies had released to shout it out loud –“A Time to Kill‘. But they are either bailed out or stored as one of the government pending files.
During the climax of the movie-The crowd(in the movie) and the audience watching(us) both are waiting for the man to set free despite what he has done . Let the cases of India be otherwise where the crowd cheers for an unwelcoming door for all the convicted with them having already hanged .
The video is a short version of few great shots of the movie. Enjoy it while reading!!!!!
My last blog ended with my next would be blog on ‘dialogues and scenes’ . I would like to refrain from it . Lately getting hooked to The Good Wife , I should have realized Kalinda Sharma is too soon joining the list . So here I offer a settlement to the readers by exploring her character .To portray an all round character, Archie Panjabi couldn’t have asked for less . It’s a dream come true role for any actor . Everything about Kalinda is different .
A Savvy private investigator with a unique dress etiquette , always on her toes with her instinctive skills . Her conventional style of carrying notes , tracking down suspects in stiletto boots and leather jackets ,she gets all her queries answered in an unethical yet flirtatious way . For me she is the most interesting character of the show. she does most of the heavy lifting’s and yet is paid a fourth of the jury consultants(initially) . Her incessant energy of handling people around , out-of-the-way approach to get the things done is incredible. In spite having wage issues she always got her back for the firm. Be it Diane with her newly found boyfriend , Will on his judicial bribery case or Alicia in helping find her daughter.At times when facing conflict of opinions with her co-workers , she strides through it . She has always been notoriously famous for using people ; taking bisexuality turns topping her list. Meticulously catching the case especially wherein she spots the difference in two photos or the one she got subpoenaed for Peter Florrick’s trial , she left Glenn Childs almost gobsmacked .
Of all the complicated relations she had , her friendship connection with Alicia stands out . The transition in her conversation from:
Alicia: Are you gay? Kalinda : I am private to Kalinda : I am not gay, I am flexible.
shows how much respect she has for Alicia and how seriously she takes the friendship. It was always Kalinda who pushed Alicia in realizing her strength and not missing out any opportunity. After all the rigmarole Alicia went through ,how devastating it could have been to find her husband slept with her best friend(Kalinda). But Kalinda proved her friendship while backing out to help Eli Gold with Peter Florrick’s campaign .Lana is an on-off fling, she never gets serious for Cary . Kalinda-Donna was the only chemistry connection…too bad she opted out of the show .
The aggravated mystery lies in she being married to a douche bag like Nick . A lot of enigma lies around Kalinda-Nick story. The look she gives at her abused hands leaves many questions unanswered . The track of husband-wife left viewers thwarted . The ‘Nick’ chapter is over for now or will it surface upon in the upcoming episodes is for the viewers to wait and watch .
