India-Pakistan, Face-off!

I know the internet is flooded with emails, pictures, blogs, website notes, rss feeds about the next ICC Cricket World Cup Semi-Final, India v/s Pakistan. But, it is impossible to explain the importance of this match. This is not a semi-final.. this is a MEGA-final!

It is not the first time when India and Pakistan is facing each other in a world cup match. Even though the overall result of the clash has been dominated by Pakistan (69 wins over 46 defeats in 119 encounters) but in World Cup, Men in Blues has given a clean sweep to Pakis (4 wins by India and NO defeat)!

World Cup 2011 is about to face the heat again. But this time, the color green is in tremendous form. Pakistan team has been through a rough time and has survived out of the most ridiculous phase. Even though the world cup is hosted in South Asia, not a single match is played in Pakistan. "World Cup Pakistan me nahi ho sakta, par World Cup Pakistan me aa sakta hai". Thats what the Pakistan team believe and trust me they have nothing to lose.

Indian team, on the other end, is struggling with their bowlers. Inspite of good batting, the bowling has let India down at crucial stages in the initial matches. But not to forget, India is considered to be the team with a box of surprise. And thats what makes this game more interesting, isn't it?

I am all set for the Big Game.

Hoping to see a good game of cricket!

All the best! This time, Bleed Blue!

No big cake for 127 hours, Social Network and Inception.

The 83rd Oscar Ceremony was a surprise!
I am sure it was just not me who was expecting a blowout of 'Inception' or '127 days' or 'Social network' all around. Just like we expect a boombang start from Sehwag and Sachin. But, it was not what was written on the cards. Inception, 127 days, Black Swan, Social Network were overshadowed by 'The King's Speech'.

The King's Speech (Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Gareth Unwin, stood out as the Best Picture this year. Colin Firth was selected as the Best Actor. Tom Hooper as Best Director. David Seidler as Best Screenplay.

Inception on the other hand, rated one of the highest in the popularity chart this year, had to get satisfied with Cinematography, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing and Visual Effects.

127 hours, a struggling real life story, was well appreciated but had be satisfied being in the nominations.

Black Swan, Natalie Portman was the most deserving candidate for Best Actress and she bagged it happily.

Social Network, had very impressive editing and was awarded by Best Editing oscar award. The other awards bagged were Best Music and Best Writing.

In Animation movie catagory, Toy Story 3 stood out tall. It was the Best Animated Feature Film and also pocketed the Best Music (original song).
