A really good laugh

Given my obsession with Hindi films, I was looking up new releases this week. Turns out it’s something called Anjaana Anjaani. On googling, land on the Wikipedia page, and this is what the plot summary is

Aakash and Kiara need to get high quickly, so they are in search for a weed shop in Haryana. They meet Tau Lallan Laal, who has a weed farm in Haryana. He agrees to give them a lot of raw weed for a deal: Akash must marry Lallan’s daughter Lalli, and Kaira must marry his son, Pappan. Neither Akash, nor Kaira like this, so they say their goodbyes and start to leave, but Lallan Lal being the gunda he is, holds them up with his shotgun and threatens to kill them if they don’t marry his children. Akash and Kaira are trapped, so they think of a plan to escape, mainly involving disguising themselves as buffalos and hiding among Lallan’s huge herd of buffalos. They cannot find any buffalo skin for disguise, so they paint themselves black. Unfortunately Pappan finds out their plan and complains to his father. Lallan is now very angry and ties Kaira up in chains and forces Akash to dance endlessly, else he’ll shoot Kaira. Akash dances all day to the song: “Kajra Kajra Kjaraaaare” and “Ashiq Banaya Aapne”. Lalli enjoys this very much. One night Akash finds a shotgun lying around. He picks it up, kills Lallan, Lalli, Pappan and also Kaira. He runs away with all the weed and buffalos. The movie ends with Akash smoking the weed on top of a buffalo, with all other buffalos following him and dancing to the tune of “Anjana, a a a ah! Anjani i i i i”

To be honest, that sounds so much better than what the film is likely to be – yet another story set in firang-land about two cool people falling in love despite having different gastronomic preferences. (Okay, that’s harsh – but can anything beat the above storyline?)

    Btw now the same page says

    Aakash (Ranbir Kapoor) and Kiara (Priyanka Chopra) are trying to find luck in their life after several failed attempts to be successful in their careers and in love. Fed up, they both decide to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge. However, both land up on the same bridge at the same time.

  4. Did you make that up or someone edited Wikipedia ?

    That was awesomely funny. I thought I would watch it but now they have gone and spoiled it :(

  5. Anon

    that was sooo funny!

  6. Wish I’d seen the ‘original’ story. No way the film is going to be as much fun as that. :)

  7. Praveen: So looking forward to Thalaivar’s padam – though the promos are a bit scary.

    BongMom, Anon, Banno – I wish I had the brains to make that up! It sounded so fascinating. Though K Jo’s department, if they were to get hold of this story – would probably change it to Kangaroos in Australia. :D

  8. You have a lovely blog here :). Had fun going through archives.

    The prank plot you narrated is hilarious! I get a feeling, if that would be made into a movie, it would surely earn more at the box office than anjana-anjaani :D

  9. too funny…BTW did u watch the spoof “Tamil Padam”?

  10. Ha! I couldn’t believe it. Really really funny one!

  11. I went to Wikipedia to confirm! WOW this is funny! Someone was clearly bored, and that webpage is the result of that boredom! The person entertained themselves and us. :)

  12. I guess that’s a perfect example of why open-source Wikipedia cannot always be trusted for information.

    Someone has an awesome sense of humour though. And a very creative imagination. :)
