Here’s a look at what I saw on the telly last week…..
So, I tune to Star – and there was this Maha-boring Awards show, where everyone was ‘performing’ on stage, called IIFA or something, and trust me, I was only watching it with the hope of Sunny Paaji or Govinda dancing (come on, that’s more fun!). But, my hopes were dashed when Saif Ali chose to imitate Hrithik’s Dhoom Again (failing miserably!) However, I still would have suffered it all, when, they actually went ahead and gave a prize to Upen Patel (WAT!!!!)…. Too much, just too much… I couldn’t handle any more of this!!!
So, I switch to Star World… you can always count on them for some good shows, or so I thought! But what was I dished out…… ‘Getting gooey with gay boy’…. Or what they choose to call it, Koffee with Karan!!! Yea, so I like Konkona and Kunal Kapoor is definitely cute material, but not for heaven’s sake on GB’s show…. where all they would discuss is SRK!... sigh… and I switch again!
Zee…some crap… with some sidey types movie being played and all, deff no fun.
Switch to Sony… Salaam Namaste… the movie that gave my granny a near heart attack….no way hosey!!! (She was aghast that there could be a movie about two people living together without marriage… it was given the ‘WORSE MOVIE EVER’ tag by her in the first half itself)
So, I settled for Sahaara One… to watch something, I wouldn’t be found dead admitting to watch…. a Telugu movie dubbed in Hindi, of the great ‘Chiranjeevi’ called Inder or something…..Yea, the songs were garish and stupid, the movie made no sense, and yes, he hit out at 20 people all by himself, without getting hurt, but atleast I enjoyed myself, because that is what his movie was supposed to be, atleast it didn’t pretend to be a sophisticated chat show or a show of Hindi Movie Industry’s global acclaim…. both of which failed miserably!!!
Yea, and like partying heavily on Sunday’s, weekend telly viewing has its hangover effect too…. I found myself humming Shaka Laka Boom Boom on Monday morning (aaaa!!!) while trying to figure out, if suing the channels for torture was a wise option!!!
And before you dial for the asylum, trust me, I have sworn myself of weekend telly viewing forever!!!
P.S: BUT…… That 70’s Show is back!!! Monday’s 8:30 p.m. on Star World.......
