Crap begets Crap

“The remake of ‘Don’ that should never have been made!”
“Don disappoints”

Funny how everyone presumes that you already consider the original a classic. Unless you are still a 10yr old living in the DD era or a Amitabh Bachchan fan, there’s no way you can survive that movie. And I’m neither.

    BTW, your sense of humour rocks – in my rating, second only to your friend, Karthik of Stochastica :-). Unsolicited comment, yes but had to say it :-)

    I hate him.

    As for fixation, Southies lead the way. Ugly heros and Nayantara’s flab. But we don’t go around claiming Batcha was a classic. Actually, you know what…it is! ;)

  3. Update: Now that I have discovered Bosey, I am afraid you would have to do a Leander Paes and settle for the Bronze medal :-)
