Blast after Bomb scare..

Finally I went to watch a Cricket match Live to a stadium. Yesterday I went to Chinnaswamy Stadium Bangalore, for watching the Champions league 20-20 match between Blore Royal Challengers and Delhi Daredevils. Evening there was a bomb scare when some bomb residue was found from a J & K junior cricketer came to participate in some local cricketing event. Lot of rumors where going around that match may be cancelled or postponed. Being from the most politically volatile area in Kerala, Kannur, I have always been living under bomb scare. In election times it is high possibility that there may an explosion but all goes and posts their vote. So for me a threat as this is like "Vedikkettukaraneyaa udukku kotti pedippikkunnathu" kind of thing.

When we entered the stadium the match between Cape cobras and Victoria was proceeding. An extremely boring match, but it served the purpose of getting accustomed to the stadium feeling. Watching a match on screen and real are totally different experiences. When you first see a match live you will be confused for a while. You wont know where to look. On the screen, players, scoreboard or the crowd. In a matter of half an hour things will be clear and you will be able to enjoy the match. But if you like to watch the proceedings clearly, analyze each and every ball bowled and every shot played better do it in the comfort of your home and tv. Here the atmosphere and ambiance will be great and you can have a good time.

An apology and a threatening

Karan Johar apologized to Raj Thackaray and Shiv Sena for referring Mumbai as Bombay in his movie Wake Up Sid. And what else can you expect from him. When eyes are only on cash register you cannot hurt any ones feeling. So beg their pardon and live the life of an asshole that you are.

Protests where also against Kaminey which refers to activities against non mumbaikars in city. Shows were stalled for days in Mumbai, but Director Vishal Bharadwaj went on with the release in other parts of India and movie did reasonably well too. So for a movie to work well you need not butter the arses of politicians.

Latest news is that Anurag Kashyap refused to changed his movie's title from Bombay Velvet to Mumbai Velvet. He says the movie is set at a time when Raj Thakaray was not even born and city was called Bombay and if any thing bad happens he will resort to legal action. Now thats a real man talking.
