Film Review of the recent Bollywood Release Katti Batti

Releasing date-18th Sept,2015
Directed by-Nikhil Advaani
Produced by-Sidharth Roy Kapur
Katti Batti ,is a film based on modern day relationships starring Imran Khan and Kangna Ranaut.Turned out to be a perfect bore.It revolves around a college based love story turning hostile as the name suggests.The dialogues are not impressive, neither is Imran’s acting which lags at the most crucial parts of the plot.You keep craving for more from the actor throughout but his innocent face is something that keeps you glancing the screen.Songs of the movie except the one party song are “OK -OK”.Kangana was perfect throughout except for having chose such a monotonous story. No laugh gags throughout. Story turning quite predictable except at the ending which kinda sews the clinging strings together. Makes you cry even if it made you yawn aal dat tym before.

(Dedicated to one of my friend who is right now behind the bars for a single mistake of his. I hope he gets out of there ASAP.)So here it goes-
…That day Phillip entered the office#442,High Street, located in the most elite surroundings of Sydney, in an all new enthusiasm ,dressed in his most crisp linen suit and his black, shiny ,heeled shoes tick-tocking through the ordinary cabins to his newly renovated office area. His co-employees who until yesterday used to share jokes with him today stood up in their seats and wished him a ‘Good Morning’; expect the one face who he already knew was jealous of his promotion. Everybody was happy of Phillip’s success. ”Oh, he deserves it. Given the tremendous hard work and the calm personality of his.I don’t know how Harry got into a rivalry with such a tranquil personality?” came a comment from Shanaya ,the receptionist in the firm.
Phillip sitting smugly in his office chair knew very well the responsibilities on his shoulders. The very first thing he knew was the requirement for the nice working ambience and his good relations with his co-employees for the same. He immediately picked up the phone and called Harry to his room in his most sweet voice. Today he will surely sort out all the confusions between them and start anew.
Harry entered without knocking as Phillip had earlier expected. He put his temper into control although it was difficult to do so. But to his surprise Harry didn’t stop his steps until he reached a point where Phillip’s chair was placed. Harry took the collar of Phillip in his hands saying ”So now you’ve got a nice chance to fulfill your desire of insulting me. Called me here !You will give your first order from your new chair to me! You B*****d!” Phillip at last was enraged and lost control over his hands. He punched Harry straight in his stomach with all the vigor that he could gather up in his fist.
The next moment Harry was puking blood on the office floor. Ambulance was called. But even before it reached ,Harry was dead. Phillip lost his designation. His job. His status. His family. Was sentenced for five years behind the bars.
Just a matter of minutes and his life went topsy -turvy. If only he could tame that animal which grew within him a second before, he would not have been repenting now. Its not just a story of Phillip or Harry. Its a story of those people who leave their home to reach some destination but end up playing blood games. Road Rage and its thousands victims daily. Its a story of those who Bully people and the ones who get bullied. Its a story of that girl in your country who has lost her smile because an animal named “man” raped her. Its a story of that man who raped. Its a story of that person who protected the girl next to his seat in the bus being molested by those stray men. It’s a story of Us all.
Just like Phillip each and everyone of us has an animal within us. Some can hide it beneath and some loose control over it often. In the very end it all turns out how well we can tame that animal which hides beneath. Because that animal can decide the course of your life. The Course of HUMANITY.
Are you also tired by the headlines as the one titled above? Enough has been heard by India over the much covered case in Indian History : ’The Sheena Bora Murder Mystery’. With news channels crossing all limits of Media Ethics and giving all kinds of reports ranging from Indrani’s first husband’s interview to the commentaries on Indrani’s character, without even fearing that Indrani may return home with the Clean Chit in the End. Till now only Investigation is in process and NO established Facts are out ,still since recently the TV channels and newspapers were fighting with each other to announce a verdict even before any court could .
But a Twist in the Tale came when Viewership of the same news channels came down instead of going up as expected by the much sensationalized ‘Sheena Bora Murder Mystery’. Twitter flooding with tweets like ’No more Indrani Please. ’ Yes ,the audience is changing. They are getting smarter.
Media turns hostile many a times. The famous case of Haryana sisters who were seen fighting openly with some boys in a bus was also an e.g. of Hectic Media Reporting without the much needed investigation. TV channels had even invited those sisters for a live interview when an another video of the same girls went viral again with an altogether different story, the same girls in the wrong this time. But till now much harm was already done. The boys who were accused of eve teasing the girls were already eliminated from their medical college and were defamed to a much extent before anything could be done by media as a compensation.
And who can forget the Aarushi Murder case. The media’s portrayal of her parents as murderers was never approved by any investigation agency.
What is common in all the three cases above? The hectic media which doesn’t’ Disseminate’ but ‘Makes News’ according to its revenue requirements. Once Broadcasted is Broadcasted Forever. It can’t be compensated. As a Viewer it’s our responsibility to not only listen to what is being told but but evaluate it from the angle of business making media. They all work for money .No doubt. Dont watch Sensational but go craving for the Facts.
And all those who turned to this article for a real twist in the Sheena Mystery , I beg pardon. Sensationalising ….this is how it works. Making you click the link before you feel like scrolling down!So now you understand!
The heart breaking images of a child lying dead at the Turkish coast by the photojournalist Nilufer Demur are not just to be watched ;showing amusement and then forgotten to lie amongst the piling trash of the internet archives. The 3 year old ,Syrian boy Aylan Kurdi was with his parents and a brother rowing over the Turkish coast ,trying to cross the sea to escape the atrocities of IS in his own country .The next day his dead body’s photograph went viral over the net and the world newspapers. His mother and brother too were reported dead the same day. Only his father was left repenting over his son Aylan’s corpse. Yes,Aylan died on his own. It was his own will .Aylan chose the path of death not because he wanted to sink into the sea of Oblivion but he wanted his Scarifice to be Counted .He died to convey a message. And as the photographer said in an interview ”The only thing I could do was to make his Outcry heard.”
This sad death is what we can turn into those famed sacrifices in world history which reversed the world as we see it today. And who will change the History-the European countries who are taking up migrants? United Nations and its anticipated decisions? Or we the common man sitting in some corner of the world reading this article. Actually each and and every single person can! Or else the IS will! We can all hold hands in hands and walk together to irradicate this IS out before it takes up a place as big as that of Hitler’s in the world history. We can give our generations a gift of some nice pages in world history which they can read out aloud to their children, saying ”This is the image of Aylan who sacrificed his life to uproot IS out.”Lets offer our generations some ‘Peace’ to read out in the History Books to be written in the coming future rather than letting the chapters be based on ‘Violence’. Surely we are the generation making History right now. Let not the voice of Innocence be trodden by an Imhumane Entity. And as Gita has its Message”Only the Good and the Just wins in the End.” So, why not draw the Victory much closer?
