A small review…

December 13, 2006 6 comments

Hi ppl,

Ok now don’t start making those faces, when you read the word review, I know that the Appraisal 🙂 are round the corner but this blog was created for some purpose (about which I myself have no clue) & the purpose is not Appraisal review for sure. Now the review is not any book that I have read recently, the book review department is handled by mattu and she is damn good @ it. So now wht is this post about???

This post is a small review on the English Premier League (EPL) teams that have managed to qualify for the UEFA Championship League Cup. Major teams from EPL namely Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool & ManU have qualified for the Cup. This is happening for the first time since I started watching Football that so many teams from EPL have qualified for the Cup. Majority of the time teams from Italian League, Spanish la liga, Bundesliga are the people who rule roost @ UEFA. Now let me start with the (so-called) review.

1. Chelsea: Hmmm …… This happens to be my very favorite team. But lately they have been playing poorly. The fire to win is lacking in them. In their last match against Arsenal, they looked like 11 men playing against one Arsenal team. They need to get their rhythm back, if they want to bring the gold home for the very first time. They have enough talent in-house to make it to the top.
HAIL CHELSEA!!! 😀

2. Arsenal: Last year’s finalist. This team is the one to watch out for, they are the underdogs. Unlike Chelsea/Liverpool/ManU they don’t have stars in their line-up expect for Henry, but they do have a bunch of talented young fellows in their gang. With a manager like Wenger the boys can give the toughest team a run for their money.

3. Liverpool: This has been a bad year for former UEFA Champions; they are going through a bad phase in EPL too. They have good players just like Chelsea, but the chemistry is missing, they need to gel with each other, coz there are many foreign players in their team. Steven Gerrard also needs to get back in form, coz he’s their whole n soul.

4. ManU: (I hate myself for saying this) ManU is the one of the strongest team in the whole Championship & if they keep playing the way they are now, nobody can stop them. This season they are @ top of their form. Everything is in place for them; all they need is to play according to the plan.

People, you are free to voice your concerns or suggestions on my review.

Shevchenko can be the best ever, says Mourinho

December 6, 2006 3 comments

Hi all,

This post is for all those who believe that Shevechenko is 30 million pound waste. Shevi is slowly coming out of his shell and proving to the world that he is a match winner. Read on guys….

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes Andriy Shevchenko can establish himself as the most prolific striker in the history of European football.

Shevchenko scored his first European goal for Chelsea as his side clinched top spot in Champions League Group A with a 2-0 win against Levski Sofia at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

The Ukrainian forward has endured a miserable time since his club record 30 million pounds move from AC Milan in pre-season, but his clinical finish against the Bulgarians was just reward for the kind of dynamic display that he has lacked for much of the campaign.

Shevchenko has now scored 57 goals in European football and Mourinho is convinced he can get to the top of the list before he retires.

“I am happy with Sheva. I think he has gone ahead of Eusebio in the top scorers in the history of European football and he is just behind Gerd Muller,” Mourinho said.

Barca avoid Champions League knockout…

December 6, 2006 5 comments

Hi all,

Yesterday was a crucial day for all the Barca fans, it was a do/die situation for their team. They(the fans) can now sit back and relax coz their team has been successful in qualifying for the KnockOut Stage. For more details read below:

Barcelona and AS Roma made their own entries into the history books of the Champions League on Tuesday, although it was the defending champions who penned the most interesting reading.

Frank Rijkaard’s Spanish giants calmed the nerves of their anxious fans with a 2-0 victory over Werder Bremen at the Nou Camp which secured entry to the last 16 after a second place finish in Group A behind winners Chelsea.

Roma, missing talismanic skipper Francesco Totti, beat Group D winners Valencia 1-0 at home to finish second in their group and enter the knockout phase for the first time in its current format.

However Barcelona’s win, for Champions League posterity, had a little more significance: it meant they avoided becoming the first defending champions to exit the competition at the group stages.

Dooooom Bachaaleee…

December 5, 2006 7 comments

Hi all,

This post is a review about a latest film that hit theatres few weeks back. I happened to watch this movie and I was/am so bugged with it that I decided to write abt it.

The movie abt which am talking here is Dhoom: 2

Abt the movie:
The start of the movie itself is mind blowing. Hrithik (whoz one of the lead protragonists) is shown as Queen of England and then the thief Hrithik comes sky diving and lands on the train (got confused 🙂 , good) and then somehow gets inside the train, steals The Queens Crown dressed as the Queen of England  and then somehow gets out of the train. Once back on the roof of the train, he uses his skateboard (yes, my frenz Skateboard) to fight the Queens Guards. At last he jumps of the train that was all this time was running through a desert. Then he disappears into the desert. He is shown skating on the sand(God only knows how he managed to reach home).


Meanwhile our cops (Jr. AB & Uday) are busy busting a drug racket. The action scenes here are so astounding that they keep you on the edge of your seat (I too was on the edge of the seat, but I was about to fall down laughing).
Summary on the action scenes: – Uday jumps onto the boat with his bike from nowhere – while the goons are going to blow his head off – AB jr. comes out of water where he was hiding all this time (wonder how did he manage to breathe underwater without any Oxygen cylinder) – once out of water, he just cleans house by killing all the goons one by one… phewww its tough being a Cop in Bollywood. 😀

Now after The Great Train Robbery which happened Overseas, we have a Bombshell Cop (read Bips) who has been chasing “Mr. A”(Hrithik’s reel name) for more than 2 yrs and she is still clueless abt Mr. A (from when did our Cops start working on International Assignments). Apparently she joins our city police team (I don’t know for what reason) and they all(read our city police) seem to be interested in this international thief (no idea whatsoever, may be he too has a prize on his head like our Gabbar Singh…). While Bips is giving out details abt Mr. A, our Super Cop (Jr. AB) has deciphered all the actions of Mr. A & also tells other cops tht his next robbery is gonna be in Mumbai. (His brain works faster than a computer).

Now Mr. A successfully robs the diamond from the Museum & gets away with gravity defying stunts, looking @ him (Mr. A) run around with all the gadgets u’ll feel that he had lesser powers in Krrrrrrish… 😀 and more gadgets than James Bond. One of his gadgets is a magnetic field generating glove .How he uses it to get away is a scene in itself . Now the super cop has Plan B in his mind to trap Mr. A, he somehow gets Ash (a.ka. Sunehri) to team up with Fu…nny Guy (yeah tht’s what she calls Mr.A). Ash is working as a Tipper for the Super Cop (Voila! The Super Cop is full of brains…). Now once together they train, plan together for their next ransack. In this process they ……… guess maaro yaaron…. Yes they FALL IN LOVE… hurray hurray.

Now the next 30 minutes or so, we had to guess how the previous scene is related to the present scene. Total Chaos,

  1. In one scene Ash & Mr. A dressed as Dwarfs plan to rob some age-old coins from a museum.
  2. In the next scene computer generated spiders are running all around & this creates panic among the tourists.
  3. They manage to escape by becoming children. (Yes, they are show as kids using computer graphics of course.) But how the hell did they lose their height & weight???
  4. Now Ash ditches Super Cop & joins Mr. A(remember they are in LOVE). Super Cop swears tht he’ll hunt both of them down.
  5. Suddenly you see Ash & Mr. A on a bike and out of nowhere a police Chopper comes in & starts following them.
  6. The things that happen after that can’t be explained in words… My heart bleed watching each scene.

That’s it in the end Super Cop catches Mr. A & Ash as he had promised. Now Mr.A asks Ash to shoot him, coz he doesn’t wanna be caught & as a good Indian girl she obeys her partner’s orders and kills him (Now u’ll think thts the end, rite?? But nope 😦 ). Now the cop leaves Ash & does not arrest her (for some useless reason). The Super Cop has something in his mind & he keeps following Ash & when she finally meets Mr. A (surprise surprise, yeah he’s alive, the bullets were fake) Super cop comes out & spoils their cozy meeting. Now Mr. A has turned into a Saint after he fell in love with Ash & decides to surrender himself & all his loot. But the Super Cop who has a Golden heart leaves Mr. A free & only takes away his “watch” (Yes, the watch had all the data about his loot). Yes this movie has a Happy Ending unlike its predecessor.

I must admit the only saving grace in the whole movie were the chicks “Ash & Bips(I still wonder what was her role??)”, Hrithik & the Body Builder (Uday), his comic timing was good (for a change).
