Its Been a Long Time...

It has been such a long time...

Since I saw a father write 'Man' with a knife-point on his new-born son's chest.
Since a young man in a jeep followed the object of his affection and her friends on bicycles.
Since a ghost attacked a girl having a bath.
Since a doctor came out of the operation theatre, took off his gloves and glasses only to say that the patient needs prayers, not medicines.
Since both twins wore lockets of Maa Sherawali.
Since a rich father refused to let his son marry his chauffeur's daughter.
Since one brother was in the police and another in the underworld.
Since a comedian was fed purgatives and a he tried desperately to find latrines.
Since a film took its name from a word in most pivotal dialogue exchange in the film. No other connection.
Since a mother shed tears of joy. And prepared carrot halwa.

It has been such a long time since I watched films with villains named like these.
It has been such a long time since I watched films like these.

PS: This outburst got triggered by (a) Nilendu's post and (b) Sid (of Waking Up fame), who failed in B Com exams. When that scene happened in the movie, I instinctively thought it has been such a long time since a Hindi film hero said, "Maa, main pass ho gaya".
