RANGEELA: Ram Gopal Varma’s A LOVE STORY

 Munna: 10 ka 30…10 ka 30…

Passerby: 2 ticket dena…

Munna: Chal nikaal teen 30 k 2 note…arre 60 Rupye dena be…:

Passerby: Corner ka hai na…

Munna:  Ekdam corner ka hai; ek yeh corner ka hai ek woh corner ka.”

 Monday Morning: Around 9 AM as the advance booking window opened , was glad to be amongst few people who had lined up in front; before I had a rude awakening by the ticket giver saying ”Subah subah kaam dhanda nahi hai tum log ko, kya dekhna hai yeh movie mein, Urmila ko”. Taken aback i asked out of keen anticipation, ‘’Paper mein likha tha ki DOLBY sound rahega yeh theatre mein, woh sach hai na.” He shrugged me off saying “Usse se kya hota hai”, and after collecting couple of tickets; was smiling all way back home as I had booked a date with Rangeela on 16 Sept at Mehul, Mulund(W).
