Friday Favorites – Wake Up Sid

Well, I promised I would review Wake Up Sid this week, and as it definitely doesn’t fit Stupid Saturday, it’s this week’s Friday Favorite. Although, I am loathe to post about it because in the movie Sid and Aisha are both hired for the jobs they want the very first time they apply, and I just got turned down again today. Ugh! It’s just a movie, it’s just a movie, it’s just a movie. Things work out unrealistically in movies. Things work out especially unrealistically in Bollywood movies.

Excuse me.  :)

Moving past my personal whinings about how hard my poor little life is, Wake Up Sid most definitely fits in Friday Favorites. It would be really hard not to like this movie, and I just loved it.

Song Sunday – Lakshya

We have yet to see Lakshya. Netflix doesn’t have it. Guess we’ll have to buy it, because it looks freaking amazing! And I haven’t heard a song from it that I don’t like.

One doesn’t need to understand Hindi to find this song inspirational:

Lakshya translates as ‘target’ or ‘objective’. This title song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan. The guy featured in the video is Hrithik Roshan, and the girl shown briefly (2:39) is Preity Zinta. The song is not currently available to legally download online (sorry, that disappoints me, too).
