National Network

What can be more irritating than

- Putting up with "so-called actor" SJ Suryah (inspite of ARR's music) or "red-eyed" Rajkiran as a hero on big screen for full 2 and half hrs

- Walking down the messy, messier, messiest Ranganathan Street immediately after a heavy downpour

- Watching a mega serial *start episode* Daughter-in-law perpares coffee and mother-in-law drinks it criticising the taste and the d-i-l's dad's financial status *end episode*

- Getting stuck in traffic and reaching office/home in one and half hrs instead of in 15 mins

- Working under a MCP-ish manager

- Listening to regular Sun Music callers konji konji fighting with VJ Prajan for not being able to make out their names from their voice or telling Anandha Kannan that hez looking damn handsome

Back to question..Whatz more irritating than these??

For me, itz watching a late nite Hindi film in Doordarshan. Thanks to Mala, the cyclone, our cable operator disconnected the network(with prior intimation though) while I was determined to watch a movie. Left with no other choice but DD's "Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon".

Huh! Within an hour I knew I made a mistake. It went on like 10 mins movie-20 mins break-10 mins movie-20 mins break-10 mins movie-20 mins break and the cycle continues. Movie was so-so. But after knowing that Abhishek Bachchan is doing a cameo in the latter part of the 2nd half, I sat till the end of the movie cursing each and every commercial break (which I know by-heart now)

Crazy!!! I know...but still once in a while itz ok :) On Dec 24th, DD is screening "Hum Aapke Hain Kaun". Will I watch it for the nth time?? That too in Doordarshan?? Just because itz my favourite movie?? I honestly haven't decided yet ;-)

    I watched this movie for Kareena Kapoor. I decided then, I will never watch hindi movies in movie hall!

    HAHK is another movie that bored me to death :-(

    @vee-jay - Yeah!! Lots infact

    @ferrari - Maybe I liked HAHK coz that was the first movie of that genre which I saw. But not the subsequent ones with too many chachas, chachis, a song for every family gathering and not to forget the senti senti sagayee, bidayee and Karva chauth.

    @nithya - Actually me felt Kareena Kapoor looked better in this movie
