The movie “Roy” was lying recorded on my set top box for quite some time. The reviews of the movie were pretty bad and it bombed at the box office.
Even after reading the bad reviews I decided to watch the movie for the sake of Ranbir Kapoor.
I am no expert at movies but am not able to stop myself from sharing my views and thoughts while watching the film. This is how I saw the movie:
And the movie ended. And yes in between smoking and drinking sequences,there were many inaudible ,philosophical and long conversations between the actors.
The song “Tu hai ki nahin” played in my head for quite some time..

More Than Equal- Women at Nizamuddin Dargah
by Ravi Dhingra
You cannot enter without covering your head…the sign at Dargah says so..but wait … even with head covered you cannot enter if you are a woman-that’s the other sign at the entrance of Mausoleum says .This exclusion for religious reasons does not deter women from entering the shrine.They may not be allowed to enter the Mausoleum but there presence can be felt over the place.The corridors and open spaces around the Mausoleum are filled with women of all ages,religions,castes.They can be seen worshipping,bowing their heads,reading the holy scriptures,getting mesmerized in qawalis,Tying holy threads for fulfillment of their wishes.The faces may be happy,anxious,sad but the hope is there. Things are going to be alright after all….
