What If Movies were for real

Strange to think about I know and a bit awkward too. But what if movies were for real? Movies in context with the Bollywood masala types.
1. There wouldn't be happy ending all the times first thing.
2.Actors will have to think about the survival and their financials along with love.
3.Heroes definitely can't fight with 10 "Gundas" and yet win. I'm sure they would be Chaaro khaane chit even if one of the Gundas hits them hard.
4.They would run to Gas station every now and then to fuel their car/bike and would crib about petrol/diesel prices rising up.
5. They will have to bribe the traffic police or pay fine when caught for drinking and driving.
6. Oftentimes , Hero sings a complete song for day and night over the phone for his girl when they are on STD relations. If it's prepaid, chances are his call might get disconnected before the song could be completed. If it's postpaid, he will get monthly bomb bill and then may inquire about cheap STD rate plans  :D
7. Sallu's shirt would not be removed automatically with Air or water effects ( as shown in Body Guard and Dabang)
8. Even hot actresses would suck without make-up, expensive dresses and accessories.
9.Stuntman would not be replaced with hero for stunt scenes.
10.Actor and actress will sing in their real voice instead of lip-syncing. Wow! It would sound awesome! isn't it?
11. NO CUT! So basically no going back once anything is said and done.
12. All izzz never well :)

And there is just so much more I could write. So if you think about all the points, we all are real heroes and heroines and play a better role in life. So be proud of that... I am :)
So why do we like most of the movies which are just so unrealistic? May be it's because we like the possibilities and dream-world where just anything is possible and so damn easy. In real life, nothing comes for free and there are compromises every day. To sum up, there are also a few movies which were kinda practical and realistic, I could remember some like "Bawandar", "Corporate" and "Page-3" however, they were not able to gain the audience's interest as much as the delusive ones did because we all love that dreamworld. So happy watching movies. They're good time-pass!

A Shopaholic

Well, I'm a Shopaholic. Quite often, I find myself in clumsy quandary whenever I encounter something captivating like this-
My Heart- Hey, look at that! WOW! Awesome watch. it would look fab on you.
My BrainIndeed, it's a nice watch and it would look good on "anyone" not just you. Sweetheart, it's a month end and you already have 2 expensive watches. You have been gifted with a Fossil watch just last week on your B'day.
HeartBut that isn't Tommy Hilfiger and look at the watch man. It's TOMMY. It's so damn cool!
Brain-Think twice baby. Already you've spent so much in your Delhi trip. Your bank account will become zero. You want that to happen? You promised that you would invest in some saving plan. Where is it gone?
Heart -That saving plan is for next month anyway. What are credit cards for? just don't think too much. Pick it up.
Brain- Don't. You will regret after you pay the bill.
Heart -Come on! Don't pretend to be a mature and senescent girl. When I know you are not. The more you think, the more it will confuse you. 
Brain- Wait! Take a moment. Think again. You can buy it next time too after settling your credit card dues for this month. You have shopped so much in Delhi. This can wait. Trust me.
HeartWhat if someone picks it up. I'm sure somebody will shortly. Look at that guy, looks like he is planning to buy it for his girl. Moreover, Nobody leaves good things in Bangalore for donkey's years. 
Brain-Don't treat me like your enemy. I help you take logical decisions which are good in long term. This is luxury and not a necessity. Don't act like a kid now.
HeartWho cares! Life is uncertain and moments just pass by. Nobody has seen the future anyway! 
I- Shut up you brain! You make too much of noise all the time. Why don't you take rest for sometime while I buy it....And I go, swipe my credit card and come out with an alluring smile out of the mall like Queen Victoria.
So this was my story, Let it be clothes, accessories or anything else, after looking at the stuff clung to any statue or display, don't know what happens! I forget about my saving plans my friends had suggested, forget about my credit card dues and my financials. The only thing what matters that time is the things which are screaming at me -"Come. I'm meant for you. Own me!" and there I go, recklessly....hug them and say, come home :)

P.S.- "I like my money right where I can see it -hanging in my closet"- Sex and the city.
