    Picturising the so called congress as described by you, i cannot stop laughing....especially when you mentioned the mute part.....

    I guess kalyani, you must also have heard of this pun!


    It is very apt given our political scenario... :laugh: Some people think up of such brilliant comparisons LOL...

    then Ok.
    We shall add some humorous posts using our imaginations :cheer:


    I have seen those threads but my intention in starting this one is from a very different angle, as you can see I have started this under Humor and Jokes and the purpose is to invite similar jokes or discussion on husband-wife relationship!! Not talking about the movie really!!


    Kalyani, when a thread is started under humor to get some humorous responses you get very serious debate and when a serious discussion gets started elsewhere the S factor ( brigade) takes over and you have gossip for pages together, what a topsy turve place this is LOL....


    Yes Usha I noticed this contradictory tendency here!! I often wonder at times if I should start such a discussion on a serious note to get the humorous responses that I wanted!!! :lol:

    Going by this link, it looks as if the producer director borrowed rather generously from every source possible and put together the scenes...

    http://tanqeed.com/forum/barfi-scenes-inspiredcopied-from-the-notebook-charlie-chaplin-and-other-movies/

    and some very sound reasons why it is a bad oscar choice..

    http://www.firstpost.com/bollywood/three-reasons-why-barfi-is-a-bad-oscar-choice-466245.html


    Yes Usha, when I saw some of the trailers of Barfi, I immediately remembered Charlie Chaplin's movie, it is not at all an original movie so how come it was even selected for the Oscars?? But then, mediocrity rules and excellence gets ignored so I am not surprised. There are much much better movies being made in Marathi and other regional languages, but they don't even get nominated to the National awards, leave alone Oscars!

    Barfi is a good picture of this year till now.All characters played a marvelous role.When I watched the movie it seems to me that I am watching some what a black and white cartoon picture. Ranbir Kapoor looks like Charlie Chaplin.

    I don't think the thread has any more significance as no more productive points are being given. Barfi nominated for oscars is not the right term. Its just an entry from India for oscars and its just in the list. Top 5 or 10 are yet to come.. So lets not come to conclusion. I think mods can close this thread.
