KAT Scan... 4

Tarantarra. Dhishum. Dhishum. 
Amidst much excitement (mine) and fanfare (mine again), the book seems to be on its way to the stores.

And the last trailer has coincided beautifully with the books hitting the pre-order shelves of most online bookstores.
The release has been pushed to avoid clash with The Amazing Spiderman this week. Also, first week of the month would mean fatter wallets and brasher credit card usage. (Heh. heh.)

LINKS ON THE RIGHT SIDE PANEL. ORDER NOW!!!

And while waiting for the delivery, here is the fourth and final trailer of Kitnay Aadmi Thay? You could call this the 'Dialogue Promo' (or 'Song Promo') since it is a quiz on some famous lines and songs. It is more of a puzzle than a quiz.
You will have to guess the dialogue or song from the visual clues. Cool, no?


* * * * * * * * * * * * *

1. A modified poster of Vicky Donor with some strange people on the edges.








2. I asked this one some time back on Facebook. Those with an unfair advantage are the ones who will have to buy multiple copies of the book!
What is the guy on the left saying about the guy on the right?





3. Simple.



4. A juxtaposition of the monster and the city.












5. Anything I say will give away the answer.








6. A greeting, a leader and a designation.

7. The lady seems to be really pleased to have owned this kind of TV.
8. Something is something. Something is something. Makes sense?

9. A certain kind of couple connected to the Chairman of Selectors with a letter.







10. How many film posters?













ANSWERS
The quiz was not as difficult as it was made out to be. A few were eminently 'gettable' while all were 'wokoutable'.

1. I thought the two Shahs (Shah 'n' Shah) on the two edges made this a dead giveaway. And of course, Vicky is the baap of all the kids. Rishte mein toh hum sabke baap hote hain. Naam hai Shahenshah.
2. That is Ajit from Zanjeer (where his name was Teja) and Mark from Facebook. Teja main hoon. Mark idhar hai.
3. Some knowledge of Bong pronunciation would help in this. 4 Shom-s followed by a Samosa is nothing but the great Dong's pronouncement: Shom shom shom shom shamoshasha.
4. Simple. Just describe the picture in Hindi. Mumbai ka king kaun?
5. That is, of course, Ali's well. As Rancho kept telling us, Aal izz well. 
6. {Hi + Hu (Jintao) + COO}x 2 = Hai huku Hai huku (hai hai)
7. The lady seems to be saying "(Yeh) mera plasma hai", paraphrasing Shashi Kapoor who said Mere paas maa hai.
8. There is a 'holy' pic and a 'cab'. If a=b and b=a, then... Holi kab hain? Kab hain holi?
9. DINK + a + Chika = Dhinka chika
10. And of course, it all ends with a product placement. How many Aadmis were there in the posters? KITNAY AADMI THAY?

SCORES
9 - Meghbalika, Abhishek Mukherjee (Can't believe both didn't get the Mumbai ka King Kong one!)
8 - Manish Mittal
7 - Sipra
5 - Plaban Mohanty (brilliant Draupadi answer)
4 - Keeping It Simple, Udayan
3 - Pankaj Parashar (not the director of Chaalbaaz, I checked)
2 - Sumit
1.5 - JD (0.5 point for getting the most important one of the lot)

That wraps up an amazing month of Bollywood quizzing!
Now, go and buy the book. Say nice things about it and get other people to buy it as well.

6. Hi. Hu Jintao. COO. Hi. Hu. Koo.
"Hai huku hai huku hai hai".

5. Ali (Zafar)'s well. Any further explanation would make me sound like one of the 3 Idiots.

Diptakirti Chaudhuri said...

Abhishek Mukherjee is fined 1 point for 'showing dissent'.
Instead of 'Mumbai ka king kaun', you came up with 'zara hatke' and want points? Bhago yahaan se.
