What is this blog all about?

The main purpose of this blog is to give an overview of the things I do, in my everyday life, in order to improve my English. Since I am a very lazy person, I mostly read, and watch movies, and do things which make it possible for me to improve my vocabulary, my grammar and my accent without getting bored... So this blog is going to be about the books I read, the movies I watch, and some other things which I find relevant (or not)...

I hope you'll like it! Don't hesitate to leave comments if you have any suggestions concerning what I should write about!!

Aaja Nachle \o/

I love Bollywood, Reader, it makes it so much easier for me to find titles for my posts...

Anyway, as you might have guessed, this post is (once again) going to be about the latest movie I watched. The said movie being a Bollywood musical, called Aaja nachle (come on and dance), and starring Madhuri Dixit and Kunal Kapoor (also sometimes called hmmmmmm Kapoor, and filling at least three of my most important criteria for getting my phone number: he's three feet tall (at least!!), very very handsome, and he probably likes curry. He has been seen with a golden cape, but I must say his use of it was not nearly as impressive as Gerard Butler's mastery in The Phantom of The Opera. Besides, he plays in Rang de Basanti, which is morally wrong (I'm not kidding, there). He still deserves his picture here, however. And the "backside" tag for this post... It must be mentioned however that his pet-name is Kunnu, which is ridiculous as such, but even more ridiculous if said with a French accent (double backside tag for this post.) I'm going to stop talking about Kunal Kapoor, now. Promise.

So, Aaja Nachle... It's a movie about a woman who's trying to save an old monument in her indian hometown of Shamli, by winning a bet she made with a man who wants to build a mall in its stead (in stead of the old monument.) (Following, Reader? I have a feeling this post is not quite as clear as it should be...) (maybe I should stop using brackets, really, I don't think it helps...) Of course, it works, of course, it's not very original, but the soundtrack is really good, and the dancing is amazing, and the actors are... (CRAP! I said I wouldn't!!!)
Let's start again. The scenario would not win any originality prize. Nor would it win any prize at all, now that I come to think of it. It is, however, a really good movie, with cool dialogs, and as I said, Madhuri Dixit plays in it, which is a sufficient condition to make me watch it twice. You might remember Madhuri Dixit from Devdas, if you have seen it. If you haven't you should be watching it now, not reading some stupid blog. Except if your name starts with an MAR and ends with an ION, cause then you have the DVD.

Madhuri Dixit, in Devdas, plays Chandramukhi, the prostitute. She's the one that looks like she is alive. As opposed to Aishwarya Rai (Paro) who's the one who looks like she's unbearably beautiful and must come from another planet. Madhuri Dixit, on the other hand, is impossibly beautiful, and the most expressive dancer and actress that I've ever seen. She's really amazing, dancewise, and she can talk with her eyebrows. I wish I could.

Anyway. Aaja Nachle was a good Bollywood movie, the first I've seen in a little while, and really, if you have a chance, watch it. Kunal Kapoor will be grateful... And so will you, for the sight...

Watch it twice, OK... mais watch it WITH YOUR SISTER ?

Aha...

Claire a dit…

Yeah! With my sister too! Whenever! Sans déconner, c'était sympa. Pas de disco de la douleur...

Marion a dit…

Bon, ouala!
J'ai commencé Devdas mais je me suis arrêtée avant la soirée fatidique.

Veux-je vraiment voir ce qui la suivra?
Oserai-je te dire ce que je pense d'A... Rai?

Ouvrirai-je un blog pour raconter ces passionnants questionnements?

L'avenir nous le dira...

Claire a dit…

Ouééé! Un blog!! Un blog!! XD

Sinon, si ça te saoule, Devdas, en vrai, t'es pas obligée de le regarder. C'est mieux au ciné. Et accroche toi, tu verras, après il y a Chalak Chalak, et tu auras gagné ta journée! Quant à Aishwarya Rai, elle est terriblement belle, mais elle ne m'est pas super sympathique. Et toi?? Kesse t'en penses??

Gros bisoux!

Marion a dit…

Naaaaan j'ouvre pas un blog c'était pour faire style parce que je squatte tes commentaires.

Bon, on verra ce soir si je continue le DVD. Mais je pense que oui. Aishwarya Rai, perso je trouve qu'elle ressemble à un alien et qu'elle a l'air d'être refaite chirurgicalement en totalité.









Pas taper!!!!!

Claire a dit…

Oui, oui, c'est sûr, elle a l'air de venir d'une autre planète, et elle fait un peu peur, mais elle est quand même parfaite. Elle ne m'est quand même pas très sympathique...
J'espère que la fin t'a plu! Goooo Team Chadramukhi!!

Et squatte mes commentaires! Squatte mes commentaires! J'aime quand j'ai plein de commentaires! -Mais ouvre un blog, quand même...-

Claire a dit…

Chandramukhi. Sorry.

Marion a dit…

Bon, alors c'est pas fini encore.
Mais j'en ai assez vu pour me rendre compte qu'en fait Aishwarya a un double physique. Avec le point rouge sur le front: sublime. Sans le point rouge: c'est ET.

Et est-ce que tu as une explication au fait qu'à chaque fois quand Chandramukhi fait le pari avec le sale bonhomme et qu'ensuite elle se met à chanter qui m'a peinte en émeraude ça me fait pleurer? A chaque fois, je veux dire, déjà à la maison la dernière fois. Etrange. En plus ça n'a pas l'air de faire beaucoup d'effet à Devdas.

Bon!! Je retourne travailler!

Claire a dit…

Il faut demander à Françoise, ça lui fait le même effet... Elle est vraiment vraiment vraiment belle, cette chanson. Mais si tu en es là, tu n'es plus très loin de la fin, quand même... Ah, mon Dieu, la fin...

Bisoux!!

Fran a dit…

Moi aussi ! Moi aussi moi aussi moi aussi je pleure à chaque fois !! C'est car c'est magnifique.

Et un alien OK, mais un alien qui danse très TRES bien, alors.

Claire a dit…

Hfffffffffghfffff (soupir mi-envieux, mi-admiratif...)
