The Weekend Movie

Lets see if you can figure this one out!

THE PHONE

RING <"Fur Elise", actually>

"Hey! sup?"
"Sup?"

"Nothin much. Getting my car serviced and then cleaning and waxing it a little. What's going on with you."
"Nothing much, just the usual weekend. Needed to ask you a few questions regarding my homework. You free in the evening?"

"Ya pretty much. Just call and come over."
"okay. cool. shaam ko aane se pehle will give you a call"

"sounds good! chalo then bye"
"bye"

later....

THE FRIEND

"hey, sup?"
"you at home?"

"cool.. i'll just come over. By the way, dinner ka kya plan hai?"

"kuch socha nahin. don't feel like going out though. have enough stuff at home. kuch kar lenge. just aa jao."
"cool. theek hai. i'll be there thodi der main."

"Ya, can't wait for it to get warm."
"A couple weeks more!"

"Good night for a movie though."
"That's why we're here! ha ha"


THE CHOICE

"Alright... so what do we want to watch..."
"I don't know. What do you want to watch?"

"I don't know. Whenever I'm at work or at home, I keep thinking 'want to see this, want to see that'. Yahan aakar mind ek dum blank ho jata hai"
"ha ha.. me too."

"anyways, new releases"
"okay... i don't think anything good's come out in a while"

"ya i know. hmmn... hey that's a good movie. saw that in the theater. Did you see that one?"
"Yep. cool hai. Saw this one?"

"ya. so and so actor, such and such director. didn't like it all that much. medium"
"ya..."

"okay i'll call and ask... hey you've seen this one? oh you have? oh oh... ya we'll try and get another one then. any you want to watch? ok cool... we'll keep looking."
"so he's seen it, huh?"

"yep. said he saw it last weekend..."
"hey what about this one? i've been wanting to see it for a while.."

THE DECISION

"it's got such and such and the story's such and such. heard about it from so and so. what do you think?"

"lagti to theek hai... call kar lete hain phir bhi. i think he might've seen it. Hey, you've this one? It's got such and such and the story's such and such. Oh you haven't? I thought you were telling me about it the other day? Oh you wanted to see it? okay cool then we'll get this"

"kuch bhi nahin... total bakwaas."

Hi Kage -
This post is genius. Makes me glad I usually watch Bollywood by myself, so I don't have to argue with anyone that they should put down that Salman Khan and just go with me on the Akshaye thing.

Thanks for your comment, by the way. I haven't left yet - but in just over three weeks I fly to Delhi! My house is in chaos as I try to figure out what to pack and figure out gifts to bring, things like that. I'm so excited, though - a little nervous, since so far I don't know much about what to expect in terms of what I'll actually be doing - but completely thrilled to get to be traveling in India!
