The social network movie review

In 2003, Harvard University student Mark Zuckerberg creates a website called “Facemash” to rate the attractiveness of female Harvard undergraduates. The site is a runaway success, getting 22,000 hits in less than two hours and crashes Harvard’s server.

Punished with academic probation, Mark gets himself a job as the programmer for the website, Harvard Connection, initiated by Winklevoss twins. However, Mark in partnership with his friend, Eduardo, takes the idea further and launches what he calls “TheFacebook”.

Myspace is no more, as per its new logo

Myspace is no more!

You might want to read further before expressing your excitement. Yesterday a close friend tipped me on how Myspace got itself a new logo. If we strictly go by its new logo, Myspace is reduced to a ‘My’ and a blank.

Logo redesign seems to be the favourite trend of 2010, to breathe life into a certain brand, website or for that matter, anything [insert a company that was once popular but not anymore]. Actually it seems like a common PR exercise to get people talking, good or bad.

Anjaana Anjaani: Movie Review

Anjaana Anjaani: Movie Review

Siddharth Anand (Salaam Namaste, Ta ra rum pum, Bachna ae haseeno) has always been at an ease with rom-coms. However this time, he has gone ahead with a plot that many would think twice before attempting. In bare words, Anjaana Anjaani is a film that starts with suicide attempts, with just two main characters and has no sub plots to talk of. Let us try naming one Bollywood commercial outing that has dared to do that, can we?

This film does take time to grow on you, for two prime reasons. First, given the fact that it is a romantic film, it doesn’t have a stereotypical start. Second, the story unfolds at its own relaxed pace. One thing that will hit you instantly, in a nice way, is the electrifying chemistry between the lead pair. Even with the worst of the scenes, with no great dialogues, that very chemistry will make you smile.

An item number, in its earliest avatar, wasn’t endorsed by leading ladies. Only vamps or dancers making special appearances graced these tracks until a decade or two ago. The first major dancing star was Cuckoo who ruled the cabaret scene in the Forties and Fifties.
