No Entry - An Analysis

The world can be divided into two pieces - those who love No Entry and those who dont. Me and Bubai fall in the first category, the rest of the human race falls in the other, i guess. I have tried promoting the movie to people of multiple profiles - my cousin, close friend, drinking partners, father in law, brother in law - flopped miserably everywhere. Amazing....considering the fact that me and bubai had to stop the bloody CD for 15 minutes so we can go to different rooms and laugh alone...at one time it became a survival issue man! So the question is...why is it so? I am somewhat of a film buff..bubai is NOT..so what got us together on this point? Bubai is divorced..i a not (as yet, but almost getting there)..could that be it? Do people in bad marriages see the point? I need a second opinion..my list of readers....koushik, loky, vikas, vivek...watch the movie and answer my questions..till then...na na na na na na na na no entry..

Honestly, I don't remember the movie but I understand the point you are making. You selfish BASTARD! Why did you have to tell me 4-5 hrs before marriage; not to get married. I think I would have been easily convinced had it been even a month earlier. Anyway, the lesson is learnt. And as an optimist (confused although!), I'll try for some more time. The end is always on my mind, thats why unfortunately I don't have an Ayush in my life, which otherwise I would have loved to.

I have seen part of the movie.. Fact is I was watching it like a movie and as a movie I slept through whole of it.. I tried to laugh but I dont know why but I couldnt laugh. May be I missed the point..

Recently my wife has job which forces her to come at 10:30.. By the time even her genetic perseverence cant make me wake up.. SO my weekdays are pretty peaceful..

Recently a newspaper interviewed me to ask how shift duties of my wife is impacting our married life. I seriously said that it has been a boon finally we are off each other.. The reporter thought I was joking and has put this observation of mine as an aside. She thinks I have great sense of humour..

Well for me its always a single road.. I dont even see the bends ad turn. So there are no entry points..

I strongly dont trust my aggressive male hormones..

I always enjoy reading your ramblings but this has gone bit too far and forced me to make my debut here….
There can be a third piece of world – those who haven’t seen No Entry. Having forced to see this nonsense one and half times, how I wish I belonged to third piece of fortunate world. But, HONI KO KAUN TAAL SAKTA HAI….
For the knowledge of public at large, I am still unmarried and desperately looking forward to get my status changed. I am quite a movie buff and always try to accept and digest a movie on some merit or the other….There are broadly three parameters which independently or collectively make you feel good about a movie.
First, it could be an expression of art viz. music, cinematography, acting etc(e.g. Lagaan, Koi Mil Gaya, Black). Second, it could have glimpses of incidents/sequences which relates to your own personal experiences (e.g. Dil Chahta Hai). Third is the charisma of your favorite legend where you accept any crap of his or her like holy ‘Prasad’ (e.g. Coolie, Mard, Sharabi)…
Needless to say that No Entry failed comprehensively on all accounts. Though I am not authority on nuances of a marriage - good or bad, but No Entry is very clearly a badly handled chaotic script with sick humor and loud treatment. There are many movies which have handled the vagaries of marriage in far better manner (e.g. Pati Patni aur Who, Rang Birangi ). Even ‘Masti’(released few months back) was lot better…
Coming back to the issue of marriage, it has nothing to do with bad marriage as even in good marriages adultery is rampant and I think even blossom better in a cozy nice marriage atmosphere. Remember, none of the couple in No Entry had bad marriage…
Buddy, it is to do with your appreciation of quality of humor which I regretfully have to say was abysmally poor and out of place…Generally I don’t dislike anything to the extent of hatred but expectation was to endure, love and appreciate which I fail to do so…
Having said this let me tell you that I admire your taste and would continue to do so even after this appalling experience…

Vivek is too offensive. I can't take this any more.
but I'm sure that vivek will re-visit this issue very soon, may be sometime around august'06. Well, if he is too un/lucky then it can get a bit delayed by 3-4 more months.
NO ENTRY - is gem of a Movie and thats final.
