Movie Review-"U ME AUR HUM" (Good but long and flat)

Indian cine fans are desperately waiting for biggest hit film of 2008, because all the films released in last few months were not up to mark. Now all the hopes of people are on Ajay Devgan home production film “U ME AUR HUM” which released today. With this film Ajay Devgan entered in the line of direction and presented his first directorial debut to people. Also Devgan couple Ajay and Kajol are in lead role in this film.

From my side this is a good film and Ajay Devgan can become very good director, however, this film clearly misses the scope of best film of 2008. Direction wise Ajay Devgan has taken care of even minor details and film is full of good camera work and beautiful scenes, however, many places he looks overdoing all this or film become very flat or simply boring. Though, in begging film starts very well and it looks that we are going to see one wonderful film, however films goes through number of boring phases as it progress further.

The story of film revolves around Ajay a leading psychiatrist and waitress on cruise Pia. Film is first about winning love and then about living with it in all conditions good or bad. First half of the film is on cruise where Ajay fall in love with Pia and try everything to win her love even telling number of lies. In second half, Pia forgive Ajay and marry him but new turn comes when it is discovered that 28 year old has Alzheimer disease happen to only 2 in thousand in this age. In between Pia also become pregnant and give birth to baby boy under complications.

Later due to her disease, she even becomes threat to her new born child and herself. Now, Ajay face dilemma of living with her wife or sending her to hospital. Though, he send her to hospital and later again decide to take care of her himself. In this phase, this film looks like documentary made on patients suffering from Alzheimer disease and a great husbands sacrifice for her wife. It also looks that Ajay Devgan has done very less research about Alzheimer patients and he has shown in film whatever he thinks right, while Amir Khan’s directed Tare Zameen Par was much better and to the point.

Though, “U ME AUR HUM” also has number of good moments which show the good direction of Ajay Devgan even some people can weep on few scenes in end, however a consistency in his direction looks missing. Acting wise most of the stars are fine and too some extent film is able to present a good watch, however, it is no way the best film which we are waiting.

Rating-2.5/5

A new 15 year old Buddha

In Nepal, a new Buddha is in making. Recently a person called Ram Bahadur Bomjon from Nepal has been fasting and meditating for the last six months beneath a tree. In him, people are seeing a new Buddha. This incident has happened in the Bara district of Nepal. Thousands of pilgrims have started visiting this place. There is news that Ram has not broken his fast  even a single time .  For the last six months, he has not moved, even to relieve himself. His place is not much away from the place where the original Buddha had done his meditation. According to Ram, he does this meditation because a snake has beaten him.

What Exit Polls are saying for Himachal Pradesh Assembly Election 2022?

  The assembly elections for Himachal Pradesh were held on 12 November ahead of the Gujarat Assembly election which concluded on 5th December. Immediately after completing the Gujarat assembly election 2022 in two places, we got multiple exit poll results for Himachal Pradesh. There are a total of 68 seats in the Himachal assembly and any political party needs to win 35 assembly seats to form government in the state. Traditionally, the main fight in Himachal is between Congress and BJP. So far, Both parties enjoyed alternative governments in the state. Therefore, it becomes a trend in the Himachal that no government repeats itself.  The last government in Himachal was the BJP and they defeated Virbhadra Singh's Congress government last time. However, Virbhadra Singh, a senior leader of congress from Himachal died in 2021 leaving a void for Congress. In the meantime, Congress also saw the loss of many other political leaders in the state which make it weaker. This time BJP wants to

 Recently, I got the option to try shampoo and conditioners from the two leading brands Wow Skin Science and St.Botanica in India.

Importance of Gujarat Assembly elections for BJP

At present Gujarat is going through the assembly elections of 2022. These elections will determine whether BJP will continue to hold the crown of Gujarat state or if it will be some other political party to make a government in Gujarat. In the previous article on the Gujarat Assembly election 2022, Who will win Gujarat Assembly election? , I have covered various possibilities. BJP is in power in Gujarat for the last 27 years and this was the first state to put trust in the hands of the BJP to rule it.  Soon the whole nation followed and BJP become successful in making the government at the centre. BJP knows that it has started from Gujarat and if how it declined then it may start from Gujarat too. Therefore BJP is very cautious about the Gujarat election and it is trying hard to win these elections at any cost. The biggest advantage for BJP in Gujarat is the presence of no strong opposition.  Both Congress and Aam Admi parties are trying to put their fights but they lack on many fronts

Bad Indian Roads and Careless driving kills around 1.73 lakh people in India

In the previous article on Indian roads, I talked about potholes and how potholes claimed the lives of 15K people in five years. I wrote this post, three years back but even today the conditions are the same and the numbers of death from road accidents are on the rise. In 2021 alone 1.73 lakh people died in various road accidents. This is a huge number and even this number of people don't die from major health problems. In India, it is tough to drive safely because the road safety track of our nation is not sound. We face multiple problems from bad roads to ignorance of traffic rules. Though in the last few years, the condition of Indian roads has started to improve the careless and fast driving of people is on the rise. Today's automatic and advanced vehicles catch fast speed in a few minutes thus people ignore the speed limit set by the road safety authorities.  The biggest damage all this does to young lives is that most of the people dying in an accident are young people w
