Wanderings; Sense of humour and some conversations!!

After a week I got some free time and here I am happily writing my blog.. so many things are happening around; its kind of adding some pace to my life; absolutely in love with this change...
1)Two and half years ago when I started working on ‘Song of life’ I was day dreaming; I dreamed that I would make a damn professional movie that would hit theatres!! I felt the same even after completing the script. I took a risk; I know I might loose some things but still I moved on. I even fought with my lead to push me out of IBM soon. Looking back I think that is a very good decision. Yup i made mistakes (read blunders too!!). I used a interlace camera to shoot the future instead of progressive one!! ( ofcourse I didn’t know about camera’s much) and I was thinking more on creative side!! And I understood film making isn’t a one man show!! You need a proper dedicated team to make a proper film!! But still I bluntly kept animal force to compensate everything and moved on.
And I am really glad that I did it. Its an awesome learning experience. It made me mentally tough and gave me the required confidence. There were some very frustrating moments I endured and I am almost tempted to drop everything and run away, and pay back my investors working in a company. But then there some awesome moments and scenes which would stay with me for a life time!! I cherish them everyday; I started loving my tough times too; they taught me better things!! Now the only thing thats left is to pay back my investors!! And even if i cant make it now; I will pay back after some movies!!
Giving and honest review if I rate anecdote 2/5 ; I would rate song of life2.5/5. Lots to learn and loads to experiment. But then I would say its better than many melodramas we watch; occasionally you might fall in love with some scenes!! Thats what I would say on my first feature. Worth trying it.
I am all excited to market the movie; Do help me regarding the same and pray for me.. cheers!!
2) Enough of these wanderings!! Lets talk about sense of humour. The funny thing about humour is; we need a person or an object to make fun off.
But a good sense of humour is something that will make the person laugh even if its a crack on him or someone related to him!!
When I came to know that my father is a last bencher who used to read detective novels I laughed like hell.. ofcourse my father laughed with me.. genes brothers genes.. technically my son would never attend a school then.. ha ha..
Speaking of good sense of humour; we cant stop talking about PG Wodehouse!! Magicians of words; you will feel like flying after reading his books. He can take a very very simple plot; make you laugh all day with simple twists and magical words. A rich guy loves a poor girl; he has to ask for his share of money from his father to start a business so that he can marry her. And this father is a lunatic who loves a pig. So our hero tries to hide this pig and plans to show his father that he saved the pig and plans ask for his money!! This is the plot!! And he can write a book on it and he can make you laugh like hell.. that’s sense of humour!!
One more joke sponsored by a friend!!
Martin Luther King: I had a dream.....
Di caprio: Oh Yeah? I had a dream in a dream in a dream in a dream..
ha ha ha.. rofl
Now lets talk about weird humour. I have tons of this stuff hidden in me; I laugh like hell when I watch a horror movie. I just cant control my laugh. And I cant control my laugh when I see too much of melodrama either. As I said you need to be weirdly observant to get these kind of jokes.
Few of my friends went to mahabalipuram and uploaded a pic with a caption “ Oh what a temple” and guess what I couldn’t see the temple in the photo except the top part; these four guys are standing right before the temple covering it up.. ha ha ha..
But then there are people who are weird than me. There is this fellow who called me at night 2 O clock!! I asked him; whatz up!!. He told me “nothing sir; I was missing ; I didn’t talk with you for 2 days”. Believe me he really told me this answer. If it had been a girl thats another issue; even a girl calling like that might suck; but a fellow who stays in the next wing with a 5 min walk calls you at night 2.00 and gives such a reply!! This is too much. Next time buddy If I get a call like that I gotta kill you for sure!! Cheers..
And the most tough thing is this dark sense of humour.. I wish i didn’t have this; but I do have this humour.. such a pity.
When I see a girl who complains that all boys drink and smoke.. I cant control my laugh; after all what this girl will do is to spend hours in a shopping mall;both have no respect for time then why the hell they should complain; boys and girls are made for each other... ha ha...
Good or bad; everything has humour ...ha ha.. cheers to life!!
3) Difficulties!! I had my share of troubles; by god’s grace they weren’t very tough and I happily coped up with them.
Recently I was working with a guy; his father is a drunk; and his mom brought him up; his salary is 5 – 6 k. He was taking some three thousand from the ATM; and it got stuck!! The torture I saw in his face is something I cant express in words. I told him clearly that he wouldn’t loose the money and we can get it back!! But still he got so scared and kept asking me what if he looses the money!! Half his salary would go in drain! I was really touched; I took him next day to the bank and wrote a complaint letter to the bank; there was so much of tension in his voice when he is asking the manager and I know he is almost crying!!
Money is a weird thing; I never checked my balance when I was working ; but once I got out I took a 8k work for part time and I worked 10 continuous days and invested 3k on it. The editor didn’t complete the work on time and the guy who is supposed to pay our money ate it out. It was a horrible feeling; but a great lesson indeed and it taught me to respect money more. ( I am speaking about becoming a miser fellow I am speaking about shrewd business sense)!
I told this incident to a friend of mine he started telling his own story; “my father and mother and my uncles were poor and they studied in social welfare hostels; especially when my parents were in the hostel ; they pour water in rice left over at night and they eat it in the next day morning. I was told that worms used to float on them; they used to remove them and continued to eat!! Here we are happily having our lunch in a good restaurant. They worked hard and made our lives easy!!”.. awesome one; most of us were from lower/ middle class families; and they worked hard for us!!
Oh my god; I am getting senti.. ha ha .. I got more involved when I heard them say those things!!
Keep rockin
3 cheers

You flow like the waters, and shine like the moon.

My money is on that you wrote it planning only the outlines and the flesh came along, very juicy, full of quality experiences.

My belief on humour is that it is the child of ridicule and it cannot exist without it, somebody/something has to be on the downside, harmless it maybe.

I absolutely loved the movie, somethings could be changed but what has ever being conceived as perfect. It would be a grand success.

Difficulties; haven't faced much but could only say that, God does play dice.
As for your investors, they are going to be rich very soon. ;)
