There are some films that are made to spread awareness or pass a message, while some are made to keep you entertained and make the entire movie viewing experience worth your money (like they say - Paisa vasool). Prabhu Dheva's R... Rajkumar belongs to the latter, as this 2 hour 18 minute film keeps you hooked on till the last scene with its perfect blend of Pyaar, Emotion, Maar - dhaad, Drama, Naach - Gaana and more. Masala entertainers seldom earn stars from some so - called film reviewers, who try to find logic in everything that they watch. One individual went on to say that this is the worst film of 2013, which means this person clearly enjoyed watching Besharam and Grand Masti. Well, to each his own and every individual has a point of view. But, is it fair to write disgraceful comments and prevent people from judging the film on their own? The answer is - NO. If I am paying for a ticket and it is me who will watch the film, then I have the right to choose what I want to watch. No review, tweet or words of hatred can stop me from liking something. Thankfully, several people agreed to this and that is one reason why R... Rajkumar was liked by the Aam Junta.
They watch what they like, instead of listening to the chappad chappad of critics! Ha.
PS: Thought of adding this extra note. I have seen the film thrice already.

I finally got a chance to watch one of the most awaited films on my 'Must watch' list of 2013, directed by the man who is known for his detailed inputs in almost every department - Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The film may have got mixed responses and recently managed to cross the 100 crore mark, but I have never allowed all these elements to affect my opinion of a film. For me, the film was very well presented and yes, it did have its share of highs and lows. Please don't tell me the story was predictable or lame, because Bhansali was very clear that the film is an adaptation of William Shakespeare (unless you missed the hype around the film or the opening credits). So, here's presenting my list of highs and lows.

Every individual has two sides (or at least that's what I think). People may think that they know you very well, but there is something that always springs up as a surprise. Most of my friends and acquaintances start off by thinking that I am this pink loving, choco - holic, lipstick hoarder; who loves her share of bags, shoes and all things girly. True, that is one side of my personality. But very few people know the gamer girl behind, who loves her daily dose of FIFA 14 and Grand Theft Auto V, watching and playing cricket as much as she dreams of zooming around in a Harley Davidson or Yamaha YZF - R1 some day.

Hola! Wow, it's been a long time since I posted here, isn't it? Well, I thought my busy bee side was at it's crazy best only during XIC days. Little did I know that office life is going to be completely different and I am learning to deal with surprises almost every day. But, my passion for things I love can never die and my blog is definitely one of them.
A big thank you to all the readers who keep sending in emails and messages to tell me that they miss the Dancebee's posts. It's your support and encouragement that keeps me going. So, I promise you guys that I - The busy bee aka Dancebee - will always come back home and update the blog. No matter what! And now, moving on to the post.
I took some time out to attend the Lakme Fashion Week winter / festive 2013 in August. While Sabyasachi's grand finale was hands down the best showcase, a few other designers like Amit Aggarwal also impressed with their innovative ideas and designs. Actress Karisma Kapoor dazzled as the show stopper for Vikram Phadnis, while Priyanka Chopra was spotted blowing kisses in the air for Reliance trends Bisou Bisou.
So, let's take a look at LFW through my iPad lens (Yes! Because I couldn't carry my DSLR).

Almost everyone around me is going gaga over this game called candy crush saga. Although I am a hardcore gaming fan, I just don't understand the hype around this one. I still prefer my good ol' candies and candy cane striped dresses over anything else. So last week, I decided to bring out my favorite dress and wear it at the India International Jewellery Week at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai. As I don't get time to work on outfit photo - shoots during rest of the week, I managed to get a few photographs captured in between shows.

Just when I thought Hindi cinema is going through a bad phase, along came directors like Aanand L Rai and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra to prove - "Picture abhi baaki hain mere dost". I was tired of watching candyfloss films, especially those without a meaningful script. From the current lot of romantic films, I liked Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (the climax and music of YJHD wins special brownie points). Now, don't get me started on vulgar comedies, because I choose to ignore them for a reason. But this year, a completely different crop of films like Raanjhanaa, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, and Ship of Theseus made me smile. Not because I have a huge crush on a particular actor or something (that's reserved for Shahid Kapoor), but for assuring film lovers like me that directors today are not shying away from experiments.

First of all, here's wishing all the amazing teachers across the globe a very Happy Guru Poornima. I would like to this opportunity to thank all my gurus for supporting me at every step. I still have a long way to go, but all my gurus have been instrumental in helping me achieve my goals. Right from my teachers in college to XIC, and even people who I look up to, thank you for being so awesome.
Taking the big leap from student to professional life has been pretty good so far. Everything is the same, except for the fact that I have taken multi-tasking to a whole new level. But for someone who has been multi-tasking since a very young age, it's nothing new. Although I must admit, I miss my dance rehearsals and books everyday. Well, that's how you learn time management skills. I make up for everything by practicing a move or two once I am back home, and book reading sessions are reserved for holidays. After all, no matter how much we crib, we just have twenty - four hours in a day. Either you make time for things you love, or you just stop cribbing. Simple!
Now that I am done with my pearls of wisdom, let's take a look at the outfit that I wore at the Moroccan Oil Event last month.
