Liberal Thoughts

issues that otherwise won't matter to the others

Delhii Heights follows 300

Of late I have been in a movie watching race. With loads of movie lying there at our place, there was this urge to watch some latest movies at the theatre. And there was this movie that put Delhi with an extra ‘i’.

When Rabbi Shergil’s song “Dilli” in his not to miss voice comes on TV, I would be there to get the feel of the whole composition. It was so damn good….the Rabbi style. And then there was this Holi song “Ey Gori” which was a neat fun song for the occasion. The video that cam on TV in between the lots of commercials was also eye pleasing. Neha Dhupia looked gorgeous and to add to the beauty of the song, Sonu Kakkar of “Babuji” and “Mallika I Hate You” fame, another passionate Sufi singer beautifully blends in her unique voice and adds colour to Kailash Kher’s tone. That was Delhii Deights, Delhi with an additional ‘i’.

With these and other few lovely songs, there was an expectation from the movie. Keeping my expectations high I booked the tickets for last weekends show at the PVR and went for the movie with my house mates. The picturisation was amazing. The actors did some good soft acting on their part. The story revolved around a few people who lived in an apartment named so – Delhii Heights.

However apart from seeing some romantic scenes, there was nothing else to talk about. It turned out to be a simple story of people living in an apartment with the only pulling material being Rabbi Shergil’s music. The movie was over and then I thought that we should have watched it by getting a dvd from the nearby dvd parlour. Frankly speaking Neha Dhupia looked truly gorgeous and I was contented watching her in the big screen. Otherwise it was a total waste of money to have spent in a multiplex.

 

Contrary to this, the weekend before, we had gone to watch the movie “300” at the same multiplex. That was my first movie at a multiplex and what a way to start. A fantastic big screen movie pulled out of the history that can a make a man out of anybody. I still chew the valour of those 300 Spartans. And now Delhii Heights has taken me back to normal.
