Hindi Movie Review - Krrish 3 - Full entertainer, with superb special effects
Over the weekend, went to see Rakesh Roshan's latest sci-fi action thriller, Krrish 3. I absolutely loved the movie! Kids who are brought up in the US also had a blast!
Prior to going to the movie, had read the critics' reviews on the internet and almost all of them were bad. However, what I have learnt is that these are critics' reviews and what the critics are looking for isn't the same as most of us go to theaters to watch movies - basically to have good time with the family, and watch something entertaining - and Krrish 3 delivers full entertainment!
Watching Krrish 3 was like watching a Superman or X-men movie because ultimately that's what the protagonist, Krrish 3 is. The special effects were amazing and on par with the Hollywood's excellent standards! Songs are few but all of them were very good, especially the Raghupati Raghav and the Dil Tu Hi Bataa songs. Hritik Roshan as usual was superb, with good acting from rest of the crew cast, including Vivek Oberoi, Kangana Ranaut, and Priyanka Chopra. I especially like the way Hritik played three different characters in the movie - all were different from each other. I also like the message of the movie - Evil may be powerful but in the end, good always wins over evil.
So my verdict - ignore the reviews and watch the movie. If you liked movies like Superman, Batmen, X-men etc, you are likely to like Krrish 3 as well.

Importance of Patience: SLOWCOACH SUNFLOWER (a story about patience and obedience)
Just came across a very nice, brief story emphasizing the importance of patience. I wonder how if we exercise more paitence, how much better we can do in marriage, in education, in career or business and other areas of our life. It's worth reading....
There was once a teacher who gave his pupils some seeds so they could plant, and look after, their very own sunflower. One boy in the class, who loved sunflower seeds, was so excited that he planted the seed and looked after it with great care for many days.......
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
In you, O LORD, I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
In your justice rescue me.
Into your hands I commend my spirit;
you will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.

With the Black Friday and Christmas shopping season around the corner, the shopping season is in full swing. One of the ways to save is by means of sites like Ebates that give cash back on your purchases through the merchants affiliated with that site.
In order to get cash back, you need to be logged into your Ebates account, and then click the appropriate merchant's link such as that of Walmart. Once you click, you will be directed to that merchant's site and any purchases you make at that site during the session, you may qualify to get cash (or in some cases, coupons).
If you are not a Ebates member, you can go to that site or you can join using my personal link below:
