The Squeakquel on DVD and Blu-ray

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Alvin and the Chipmunks. All opinions are 100% mine.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel is now available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download. Alvin and the chipmunks is one of my favorite animated movies (Live action/CGI to be precise). What I love about live action/CGI is that the combination of the real world with animation makes the movie more realistic. Three cute, naughty little chipmunks singing songs reminds me of my childhood. The sequel of the movie (the squeakquel as they call it) was released in December 2009. Just in case you missed this must watch family movie, now that its out on home media, you can grab it and add it to your home collection. Its a movie that everyone right from kids to their parents will enjoy watching.

Alvin and the Chipmunks- The squeakquel also comes in a Double DVD Pack that includes “The Squeak Along” Bonus Disc, with more music, mayhem and all-new sing-alongs. Double the fun, at the price of one. You can buy it now on Amazon and watch it in the in-home experience.

Add Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel to your home collection and get some More Munk Mayhem. It really is worth all the space it would occupy on your rack and all the money it deducts from your wallet.

Plans for the sem break

I’m halfway through my semester break so this is not really the ideal time for a post like this but still, here’s a short description of my plans for the semester break. Its almost been a month since the third semester ended. I stayed in Bhopal till 26th November to check my marks, which were satisfactory. I’m expecting a SGPA between 7.5 and 8 which would be an improvement over the last 2 semesters. I’m eagerly waiting for the result which should be out pretty soon.

After all the hard work done to convert 79s to 81s, finally it was time to go home after 5 weeks of staying in Bhopal which also happens to be my longest stay ever in Bhopal. Somehow, I always manage to visit Delhi once a month. I don’t see that happening too often in the future though. So for the last 20 days I’ve been enjoying my stay at home. Homemade food tastes heavenly after 5 weeks of having mess food, canteen food and towards the end of it, the paranthas at main station with my buddy Shilpesh. I’m enjoying the number options of fast food joints I have in Delhi. Apart from eating, and sleeping, I’ve been watching quite a few movies (no I’m not a fan of the tubelight series and am not talking about full moons or crescents) . I just love the number of multiplexes I have to chose from and how I can book my movie tickets very conveniently online. Speaking of movies, I watched 2012 in Bhopal(Hindi dubbed :D). The Hindi dialogues made that boring movie a bit interesting and gave me reasons to LMAO at every dialogue. You must read this review of the movie by Ankur, my views are very similar.

Here are some random updates about my life at home. As usual, I’ve been blogging a lot more frequently at home and that’s probably I’m writing this post. I got a wireless router at home, got a beetel router through Airtel because that turned out to be a better option than buying one. For a one time charge of Rs 1500, I can do anything I want with the router and get unlimited replacements from Airtel if anything gets messed up. Quite a few Airtel engineers that handle my locality know me too(kinda helps at times). My PC(yes, the one I used to use before I got myself a laptop) turned 9 and probably will get some rest soon. Its been serving my family for over 9 years and its still usable despite of the fact that the only changes I’ve done to it is replaced a dead 128 MB SD RAM module with a 256 MB one and eventually 512 MB and replaced the CD ROM drive with CD-writer DVD Combo drive. Buying a new PC is something that is planned for this semester break and I shall be doing it soon.

I’ll be going to Bombay Mumbai for a week in 2 days to attend Mood Indigo, the cultural fest of IIT Bombay. That would be one week of separation from my laptop, its always been with me ever since I bought it. I’ll have my phone for internet access as always :). I’ll be back in Delhi by 26th December. Nothing great planned for the rest of the sem break yet. College reopens in the 2nd week of January. I’ll spend my time at home in Delhi till then.

Aamir:Movie Review

Cast-Rajeev Khandelwal
My Rating-4.4/5

Aamir is a movie which defies the basic conception related to a bollywood movie.This movie has no heroine.Neither does the protagonist sing songs and run around trees.The protagonist is a common man and not a super hero.The story is basically about a doctor named Aamir Ali who returns to India from London and gets into serious trouble.Generally,in bollywood movies the protagonist ends up beating up the villain even if he’s a terrorist and the world’s a better place.But this being the story of a common man,is very different.

The movie basically deals with religious fundamentalism.Aamir is threatened to work for some Muslim fundamentalists.He discovers a different Mumbai with small dingy lanes even Mumbai residents wouldn’t have seen.He has a really tough time following their instructions but eventually does everything.He ends up making a really noble decision in the end.

The movie is a short movie,just about some 100 minutes long.Rajeev Khandelwal’s acting skills are excellent.I’ll give him 5/5 for his acting.Overall,the movie is not really meant for the masses,it is for the thinking minority.So if you have a good taste,as far as movies are concerned,you should watch it.

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

Cast-Imran Khan,Genelia
Watch out for-Imran Khan,Genelia,Sohail Khan,Arbaaz Khan and Naseeruddin Shah
My Rating-5/5

I know that Nobody is perfect but after watching this complete entertainer,I feel that Aamir Khan is ‘Nobody’.I had a glance at the TOI critics rating which was 2.5 but I didn’t read the review.This movie is a must watch.I’m sure many of you will even watch it multiple times.

The movie is a romantic comedy with equal weightage the comedy part.While watching the movie,my eyes were glued to the screen and in no time the movie ended.Sohail Khan,Arbaaz Khan and Naseeruddin Shah were extremely funny and everyone in the hall(people of all age groups/IQs) was laughing which is a rarity as far as Hindi Cinema is concerned.

The story revolves around Imran Khan(Jai Singh Rathore aka ‘Rats’) and Genelia(Aditi aka ‘Meow’).It is the story of friends turning into lovers as expected.I won’t give away the story too much as it might spoil your fun.

The music of the movie is really good.The music director A.R. Rahman has done a really good job.Unlike other composers,AR Rahman’s music is not copied.There aren’t too many songs which is good.I basically can’t think about any thing for which I can deduct 0.1 from the rating.

The movie had an airport scene which is seen in many other Bollywood movies.But unlike other movies the scene wasn’t simply a hero crying and pleading the airport officials to stop the plane or a hero running on the runway.Even the airport scene had something different about it.

I’m gonna control myself now and end this review before I give away the entire movie.So go and watch the movie.
