Of wisecracks, giggle-fests and all things that tickle your funny bone

Inkaar deals with a novel subject in a non-novel way. Sexual harassment at the workplace is, sadly, all too real today. But the brush Inkaar uses to paint this story is so broad that a lot of the movie is spent laughing at the unintentional humour in the movie rather than reflecting on the issue that it talks about. So, like all good 'comedy' movies, Inkaar deserves its own awards section, in preparation for the Oscars next month. Here they are - we promise our awardees are more deserving than Arjun Rampal of Adman of the Year.

Inkaar review

 

For a movie with such a good looking lead pair and such good supporting characters, very little attention seems to have been paid to the portrayal of everything else. It's like they just found the most common stereotype of everything they wanted to depict, and threw it in anyhow. Except for the depiction of Mumbai, where the Inkaar-verse version tells us that there is bright sunlight at 7 PM, and that the Mumbai skyline looks an awful lot like Manhattan.
Here are the five biggest examples of stereotypes from the rest of the movie:

Inkaar review

 

Speaking of stereotypes, Inkaar teaches you how to make it in the ad industry: 100 alcoholic drinks a day keep the doctor (and all those other boring jobs) away. In fact, alcohol might even enhance your viewing experience of the movie, and bring you closer to those it depicts. Here are how your reactions might change throughout the movie:

 

Inkaar review

 

Finally, Inkaar raises more questions than it settles. Sadly, many of these questions are not about how to stop sexual harassment, but are actual questions about the meaning of the movie scenes. For instance:

1. Why does one of the top ad agencies in the country make ads worse than those Adam and Eve might have made to market the virtues of clothes?

2. Is it wrong to think constantly about how hot Chitrangada is in a movie about sexual harassment? Real miscasting there.

3. Why is the climax so weird? Is it subtle commentary on how the lead pair never reaches climax?

4. Why is the Woman Development person discussing a harassment case with the creative team of the company?

5. How do Americans understand Hindi? Is it part of the larger Goa effect explored in the film?

6. Why does Chitrangada Singh not complain after the 786 previous harassment attempts made by Arjun Rampal?

7. When Arjun Rampal tells Chitrangada Singh that he’s a fairness cream because when he meets CS, her life becomes brighter, why doesn’t everyone in the world die of a cheese overdose?

8. Next time you lean in for a kiss and don’t get a response, is it okay to say you were only smelling her?

If you have the answers to any of these questions, or want to bestow an award on the movie, tell us in the Comments Section!

LOL: How team India can win matches abroad

India is a tiger at home, and a bacterium abroad. After our embarrassing performances in South Africa and New Zealand, questions are being asked about whether our team is truly ready to play a cricket match anywhere outside the sub-continent. We think there is light at the end of the tunnel - we think that these 6 ideas will help India rise from the ashes and become a tiger everywhere.

5 celebs we want to see Arnab interview

After Arnab Goswami took Rahul Gandhi’s case in an interview (there’s really no other way of putting it) on Monday, we think that Koffee with Karan is way too boring. If we wanted to know random celeb gossip, we’d just read their tweets. But the way Arnab grills people, you have to admire him

Why did Jai Ho fail to break box office records?

A few days after Jai Ho's release, it is apparent that Salman's latest film will not touch the heights achieved by Chennai Express, Krrish 3, or Dhoom 3. It might not even touch Dabangg-2 or Bodyguard, and this is in 2014, when every other film hits 100 crores domestically. So why did Jai Ho fail to break all the box office records we thought it would? We aren't sure, but here are a few reasons.

Implications of WiFi on Air India aircraft

Air India finally did something to make us sit up and take notice. They announced that they would provide wi-fi facilities to people on board their aircraft. This is great, but we don't think they've thought through some of the funnier consequences of their decision.

And the Jai Ho LOL-scars go to...

There are three constants in life in India: the petrol prices will keep rising, Arnab and Manmohan will always be opposites, and Salman Khan movies will always stick to a formula. Whether he's a cop, a bodyguard, or an Aam Aadmi, he's basically Rajinikanth in a different body.
