Mere Jeevan Saathi

Unexpectedly I was invited out to the pictures. Yes I was taken on a date — can you believe it? We went to the Odeon at The Trafford Centre where we saw Mere Jeevan Saathi.

It was in Hindi but had subtitles (luckily, as my Hindi is a bit rusty). But, after a while, I forget that I’m reading the dialogue.

This certainly held my attention to the end, even though it was more than two hours long. Loved the musical numbers and scenery. It was a tragic, melodramatic story. But also very camp.

Karisma Kapoor plays a rather scary woman who has an obsessive love for a pop star. The phrase ‘tragedy queen’ was invented for this character. She urgently needs help. But you can’t help feeling a little bit sorry for her. We’ve all been there… Though personally I drew the line at explosives.

Karisma Kapoor looks like Valerie Leon I think.

Tony Blair on Newsnight

Tony Blair was on Newsnight last night to promote his ‘respect agenda’ and answer questions from the audience. As the programme started, he seemed to have a bizarre glazed expression on his face.

At the end, Kirsty Wark said goodnight to the viewers, the credits rolled, and she completely ignored Blair, who was sitting next to her. She put down her microphone on the table and looked straight ahead at the audience. Blair looked at her, obviously expecting the usual fake end-of-programme pretend chat, but there wasn’t any.

He glanced at the audience, then back to Kirsty Wark, like a puppy seeking affection. But she continued to look straight ahead. He stared at her. Then, finally, as the music came to an end, she looked down at her notes. Fade out…

I would love to put the video on here for you to see for yourselves, but the BBC probably wouldn’t appreciate it.
