Does a broken relationship mean The END? Nope. No way. Life goes on and on and on and on…Maybe a little faster, now that I have so much time for myself. The weekends are so jam packed with activities; every Monday morning I wonder where the last two days went! But in the middle of all the hustle bustle, laughing, giggling, shopping, partying, I stop for a few seconds and think of the past….

Speaking to her friend I say “us” like I’m still a part of the gang. Seeing something that’s similar to the one she’s viewed with me sends a jolt of realization down my spine that I’m not her companion any more. When I go to a restaurant, and am deciding what to eat, the menu very rudely reminds me of the stuff she hates eating… list too!

I miss hearing her groggy voice when she used to call to wake him up in the morning. I miss the chocolates she used to get me sometimes. I miss lazing around with her. Deleting her pictures from my phone can’t erase her memories from my mind…I just wonder if she feels the same way for me. Does she miss the way I smell? Does she miss my whining? Does she miss my touch?

Does she miss our Cricket matches? Does she miss the way I used to crinkle my nose at the mention of her “friend”? Does she miss the way I keep blabbering? But does it even matter now? Maybe it does. And that’s why I’m writing about it!

Fine, we didn’t work out. I’m not gonna talk to her again. Not in a million years. Not even when she sends me a message to say she’s in some trouble. Am I being hard hearted? No I’m not. After whatever happened it’s only logical that I maintain a stony silence. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. I’m not a saint .

I can’t behave like one either; forgive/forget and speak to her is not possible any more. If in a relationship one person doesn’t respect the other, calling her/his only in the hour of need then the whole thing stinks- not of friendship, not of lust, but a rotten kind of love. There’s love here. No denying that. But it’s gone bad. And what do you do with something rotten? Throw it away…

Reflection of Myself in SAAWARIYA

There's a dream every man would like to see getting realised in his life-love a very special and beautiful girl even though he wakes up and finds her non-existent, he still searches for her. This 120 minutes of Sanjay Bhansali's SAAWARIYA will make yo search for that beautiful one and when you realise that you almost got her, she will slip away from you.

As a story I don't think SAAWARIYA has much to tell people; one might just ask ok Sonam Kappor (Sakeena) got her lady love Salman Khan (Iman) who leaves her and than suddenly comes on an EID and says "God is still creating you". No logic!

Acting wise, Ranbir Kapoor impresses; I am so happy to such natural acting from a newcomer. He is young, vibrant, confident and above all he is a charmer. He profuses a sense of charm in his movements, dialogue delivery. This guy bared a lot in the movie ( so what if Dimple Kapadia bared a lot in 70's with his dad Rishi Kapoor in BOBBY). Ranbir's character had shades of Raj Kapoor's 420 and Ajay Devgan's character of Hum dil de chuke sanam.

Ranbir has a steamy body, dances well and his emotions such as the one in which he says to Rani I love you is excellent.He can have a great career if he becomes the young lover boy of this country! bTW i hit upon a girl in the theatres and instead of saying Sorry, she said "Oh! Ranbir's back". Now, you know how impactful is Ranbir Kapoor!

Sanjay Bhansali has given both Ranbir and Sonam equal share of screen but Sonam to me needs to work a lil on dancing skills. Her character is that of a Muslim Girl Sakena and while she is waiting for the man whom she loved she doesn't mind with a smile. Sonam acts well, has that grace which I witnessed in Madhuri Dixit. A little skiny but that;s good.

Rani Mukheerjee seems to be the female version of Aaamir Khan. Her role as Gulabi, a call girl is so breathtaking natural that for a while you might just wonder it's real. Salman does what he should do-- acts with a penchant of attitude. Sometimes I wonder if he's speaking Hindi in English.

Sanjay's Bhansali cinematography is speachless and contuning with the tradition of DEVDAS and BLACK, the movie shot in R.K.Studio, Filmcity, Filmistan and Mehboob Studio had such sets that you have to see in the theatres to believe.

To cut it short and crisp, the songs are a huge hit..the movie leaves me a mark with Ranbir Kapoor but it doesn't stand a very good chance of competiting with OM SHANTI OM. But having said that both are diffrent type of movies. Farah Khan has made another masala movie with SRK, so if you wanna watch something different you watch SAAWARIYA.

I give it a 3 star out of 5. Go and watch in this DIWALI and do clasp your lover's hand. You will enjoy the touch so long you are watching the movie.
