I have currently fallen in the format which says- work on weekdays and part of weekends, chill on balance weekend… Like how millions of human slaves ( yes, we are slaves) do.
So, when friday evening came close, I was excited. I had a good line for the weekend. A musical on friday evening, then maybe hangout, go for a drink somewhere… dance class on saturday… Maybe a movie.. catch up with friends….
I was looking forward to it… in the midst of work and whitewash going on at home.
Disaster 1 : So me and T land up all excited for this musical we have been planning to attend all this week. A much talked about event on our ” forever connected” facebook.
It’d called HAIRINDIA - an indian rendition of a cult American Musical – “HAIR- The American Tribal Love Rock Musical”.
I don’t know much about the American Musical besides what I found on Wikipedia… But if it was anything like what we saw, either it could not possibility be a cult show or people are demented.
HAIRINDIA- we walked out around 9:30.
Good costumes, great dancers, good music set up…But that’s it.
Beyond that, it was outright boring. There was nothing which held my attention in any form. I understand the focus on love and peace, no war, sex, drugs, freedom, living my life…. We have heard that done to death in association with the 60s and the 70s. To get attention on this, there has to be something more… great sets, awesome singing (some of the singers were good but…… on the whole….), performance, story line, something ……
I can’t digest this is the actual rendition of the cult – HAIR musical. There was a lot missing. No depth, no nothing.
I was abused for dragging a few more people to the musical.
Disaster 2 : Went to Saket for dinner to bitch about how our precious time got wasted…… to end up at ‘BUZZ’. I have had great memories of BUZZ, a bar belting out ‘Bollywood’ beats in full swing…and running packed house even on a weekday.
We walked into PUNJABI LAND straight from KAROL BAGH, grinding away on the tiny dance floor. The place was pretty empty. I had not seen the crowd I saw there for a long long time. I stood eyes popping, jaw dropped… Had a horribly made mojito …. and ran to rescue ourselves to the confines of our half unfinished paint smelling house.
There was hope… Sat and Sun to look forward too….
Sat went lazy, happy, dance class… to a movie. That’s when the Disaster stuck.
Disaster 3: A movie which has been given 4 stars in the leading newspapers of the country. ‘The Bounty Hunter’ starring Jennifer Aniston and Hottie- Gerard Butler. Post ugly truth, I was pretty excited to watch him again in a movie. What a disaster.
It’s not even a chick flick… I don’t know what to call it. A bounty hunter next assignment is his ex-wife…. and it get’s complicated with her… Predictable, no story, soppy little thing. It sucked.
I have decided to not do any activity for the balance weekend. 3 Disaster in a single weekend is good enough.
I sit in the summer heat and watch the house getting white washed.
