A Wednesday – a review

Posted on 2 Comments

Simply hats off to it! A brilliant and rare combination of a thriller script, excellent performances, state-of-art direction and moral value.

Very rare will you find such movies in the Bollywood industry, where most of the movies’ stories are derived from Hollywood or the films are made keeping in mind the action and comedy loving population.

It was a relatively short movie, as compared to the normal Bollywood standards, but its every minute was full of thrill. The film was devoid of any songs, contrary to 95% Indian movies, to make sure the quality of entertainment (which we get from the thrilling and chilling moments) does not fade away.

It seemed that Naseeruddin Shah put all of his life’s experience behind his stunning performance in the film, and he admitted that in a recent interview published in a local newspaper. Anupam Kher’s was also a brilliant performance. Other notable character was that of Jimmy Shergill; his was an impressive personality.

I just hope that more of such movies are made in Bollywood and we get to see such moral imparting stories in future. Other good reason to make such films is that people would get variety!

Finally, the movie shows the world that Bollywood is also capable of making excellent movies, as is Hollywood, and does not shy in making such movies with the fear of getting lesser revenues. 10 out of 10.

Fedora 9 – The first impression

It took me about 8 hours to download the Fedora 9 i386 DVD image from their server. I did that even when I had my final exams going on, but then Fedora has always had a special place in my heart. I had an existing installation of Fedora 8 on my PC (which I could have just “upgraded”, still I went to make a fresh install. I’ll format the F8 partition later, once I have backed up my stuff from there.

The Fedora 9 download got over in the morning, after which I had my paper. So, I decided to install it after returning home from college. And I did exactly that. 😉

It didn’t take much time in burning the image onto a DVD. As soon as it was done, I popped in the DVD in my DVD drive and rebooted. After a few seconds, I was able to see all the installation options, like perform a fresh install, upgrade an existing installation, boot from the first hard disk, etc. I chose the first option.
