Ummm.... anyone remember 'the-thirteen-song epic'? :)

Still .. watching Mughal-e-aazam or Pather Panchali in B&W beats Sarkaar Raj anyday

I cannot see M. E. A any more- just can't.
And Mr Ray didn't exactly make thrillers, right? Different genre.

hehe..Madam/Sarkar,sahi farmaaya aapne.:)Cynicism takes over somewhere or the other,na?

hehe..I still prefer comedies of Golmaal(new and old) and Dhamaal type, rather than movies like Sarkar Raaj.(Perhaps I'm v. young at heart?LOL)
