The Oscars have come and gone, and Life of Pi seems to have picked up quite a few. While there are still some who will say Life of Pi is essentially an Indian movie (because of the name of its protagonist), it is true that India is under-represented at the Academy Awards. Which is why we're organizing this special edition of the Oscars - the Desi LOL-scars - and we're giving awards to anyone who has displayed exceptional acting talent. For instance:
1. Pranab Mukherjee
For actually acting like a President, especially after the last one put mercy and globetrotting above everything else
2. The good people at II*M: For acting like ****s ((note: asterisks are used to protect against blocking)
3. Facebook: For acting like cocaine or heroin, and making us all addicts
4. Manmohan Singh
For playing the part of a dumb man convincingly, for acting like a robot... he's like Daniel Day Lewis (multiple Oscars)
5. MS Dhoni
For acting like Sachin, and proving critics wrong again and again. Also, an additional award for acting like Sachin, by being a bad captain
6. The Indian authorities: For acting exactly like the North Korean authorities, now that they're armed with section 66A
7. Abhishek: For acting like he's not a Bachchan
8. Aishwarya: For acting like Yokozuna (from the WWF), after the birth of Aaradhya
9. Sunny Leone: For acting, period, after years of 'acting' in porn, which isn't exactly the hardest thing there is
10. Rahul Gandhi: For acting like he cares about the common man
11. NaMo: For acting like he isn't yet thinking about becoming PM in 2014
13. People who watched 'Race 2': For acting like they hadn’t just gone through the most traumatic experience of their lives
And now, for the ultimate LOL-scar, for a Man who is beyond both Oscars and LOL-scars...
For acting like Rajinikanth
This weekend, a huge global blockbuster is releasing. No, not the Hobbit Part 2, why would you think that? We refer, of course, to a film which is sure to be a masterpiece, Sunny Leone’s second big Bollywood outing, the one and only 'Jackpot'
The Congress Party cannot be happy right now. After contesting in 5 states over the past few weeks, they are winning just one, the smallest of the bunch. In the others, their seat share stands at a pitiful, exam-failing 21%. Heads will roll, strategies will be debated, RaGa will emerge unscathed.
R...Rajkumar is bad. We don’t wish to spend too much time on using words to explain how bad it is because it is movies like this which prove that every second of your life is precious. Spending it on R...Rajkumar is a huge mistake. Right from the inexplicable use of fullstops in the title to the insanity that went into writing the dialogues, R...Rajkumar had us thinking about all the bad things that happened in our lives, and how they actually become good when compared to whatever it was that Prabhu Dheva was attempting.
As the economy keeps inflating, so do Bollywood collections. In no time, they’ll each be making the equivalent of the cost of one onion! We predict that the upcoming Dhoom 3 will make 300 crore. Here’s why:
Following elections in Delhi yesterday, exit polls point to the fact that the Congress is going to lose, and pretty badly. What a surprise. Not. Considering the Congress’ performance over the past few months, we’re sure pretty much ANYONE could have beaten them. Here are a few examples:
