I went to see the movie 'Dark Water'. I did not know at first that it was written by the same guy who wrote The Ring. It was 2 hours and Rs. 300 of my life that I would never get back. I spent less than that in a nearyby bowling alley and I was satisfied. The only things that looked scary in the movie was the power plant built so close to the school in that movie. After the 2 Ring movies and this one, I will never look at the ditch full of black water the same way again. Should I expect a little girl to jump out of that and try to kill me? What is it with Japanese, death and watery tarts? To boot, some 'respected critics' here have given three and a half stars out of five for this!
I went with my flatmate to this movie. We went to a bowling alley first, then to a nearby restaurant - 'Only Parattas', on Linking Road, Lokhandwala. Describing it overpriced is an understatement. A single paratta was Rs. 100 - the same could be had for less than Rs. 10 in a decent restaurant, and Rs. 20 in a pricey restaurant. Service was very poor. We had to wait for 10 minutes to order, even though it was past 10 in the night, and there were only a few people. The kitchen's smoke was spilling over into the hall, the stuff my flatmate ordered were very oily, there were flies about the place, we had to tell the waiter three times before he brought us our bills, there were two very noisy children crying in the restaurant. I would never recommend anyone to eat there. I have also been taking him to a nearby bar for the last two days. He says he has doubts about the marriage. He wonders if his old 'girlfriend' still wants him.
