Nepali, Race and IPL T20 Finals Chennai Super Kings Vs Rajastan Royals

I never thought that I am going to miss the finals of the IPL T20. But due to heavy rain fall in Bangalore, rain water went into the dish of the cable tv operator. No cable for the entire Sunday(i.e., 1st Jun 2008). First I thought of going to one of my friends home and watch the match, but from drizzling the raining became heavy so canceled that plan. Then rented this Nepali and Race DVD from the vendor near my home.




While catching up with the match in cricinfo.com started watching Nepali movie. Don't know the story, so it was some what interesting in the beginning. Then got the point of view of the director. By the Tamil cinema standards it is a okay kind of film, don't know the financial success though. Asked my sister, she said it went okay. While watching that movie itself felt like the movie was a mild copy of Irreversible. Don't know why I felt that way, I guess because of the non-linear effect, and the love scenes between Barath and Meera Jasmin, cruel killing of people(who can forget the cruelty of Irreversible movie).



In between I was watching the scores too :), Chennai super kings did well in the end. Rajastan Royals are much superior than the super kings. They should scored 20 more runs to put up a great fight. But did well in the slog overs. Yusuf Pathan played really well, he is a good find for Indian cricket, he is not a old school guy. But he connects well, that's important in 20-20 cricket; even in ODI also. Should keep his momentum going.



After that half minded about watching Race movie, not because Chennai super kings lost their match, because felt too sleepy. But turned the other way. First half of the Race movie was interesting but the second half "OMG" so boring and too much twists and turns I can say, climax car race was a good one though. I like Saif Ali Khan, he is a talented bollywood actor, the other Akshay Khanna is a butter face boy grrrrr. btw Katrina Kaif and Bibasha basu I like the first one more. Not because of the color I guess :(.
