MovieWatch: Lost in Space

Khoya Khoya Chand isn't a good movie, but you can tell there's a good movie somewhere inside it.
Soha Ali Khan is luminous in Khoya Khoya Chand, a languid tale of uncertain lovers. In its gloaming, nostalgic, 60s Cinema ambience, she's an unambiguous star the way Vidya Balan was in Parineeta. That movie as a general experience hangs around the perimeters of this one (the sun to its moon, if you will). The comparison, in other words, is unfavorable. Where Pradeep Sarkar made a melodramatic and effective, contemporary period film, Chand is an incoherent, meandering project in which tons of offscreen talent are squandered; poor editing and Shiney Ahuja combine ably to give us the impression we're watching skectches rather than finished product. Ali Khan is a blessing, but this haphazard effort will be forgotten in a fortnight.

Unfortunate indeed. Will watch it and tell you if I agree. I really like Soha Ali Khan though. Generally. Post RDB.

It was on the newspaper when he saw the watch again. How time flies! 50 years had passed since he saw it the last time. He never stopped finding it during the 50 years. He was too old to remember too many things. However, everything about her was still engraved in his mind and never disappeared.[url=]Mens Salvatore Ferragamo Sunglasses[/url]
The Datejust II was released in 2009 as the follow of the significant Datejust, which is the ultimate reference chosen by those who long for timeless elegance. The high quality white printed dial screwed in crown logo, clear Roman numerals, silver alternating with gold band make this classical wristwatch. It has thick, heavy, solid presidental style bracelet, which is both endurable and traditional. The screw threads around the dial add some complexion and uniqueness. It is a rare combination of 904L steel and 18 ct yellow gold. All gentle and mature men will not miss this watch. The brief and luxury appearance and practical function make it suitable for both formal and informal occasions. The good reputation makes the consumers choose Rolex watches at ease since only perfect watches are sold.
