Priceless Things

Today is the last day of the vacation which my christian-minority college gave for us, in a way i am fortunate to be studying(at least going and coming back) in this college because they are all religion fanatics and there is always a reasonable amount of holidays for any religion’s occasions. It seems to be like everyone out there is doing some work or going to college but we alone are staying at home and enjoying our vacation, but this vacation of 12 days have been very enjoyable for me and my friends but money was spent in fairly equal amounts, we saw quite a lot of movies that’s where the money went, almost everywhere the tickets costs were more than 70 + 30 rs one day pass to go travel by bus + food eaten outside cos we get back home very late. But whatever happened we did enjoy our asses off. OK at the end of this holidays i plan to just write a list on what movies i saw and see how much i spent and also other things which took place in between.

  • VETTAIKARAN (hehehehe) we wasted 70 for ticket,just a waste, luckily we missed the first 15 mins which was extremely funny as a few of my other friends say it was and adding other costs some 60 approx.That day was the first time(for all not just me) we went to the citi center after roaming in the beach for about an hour. Date: around 23,24 Theatre: Idream,Royapettah.
  • Raj’s christmas party, we went to his house near avadi this was not a costly affair but 30 rs ticket was taken as it was needed and morning breakfast was eaten out.We drank just a bottle cap full of wine at his home, some were expecting beer but that did not happen, briyani was served saw this sivaji movie at his house luckily only the first half then we talked at chatted took photos with Raj’s guitar and time went by, but sadly since there were many at Raj’s house, he himself couldn’t enjoy as he was hosting the lunch.Date: 25.
  • YOGI- wonderful movie i did not even write a post about it, this movie was raw, realistic and emotional. It deals with the concept of ‘even bad people can have heart’.The last scene when ganja karrupu throws the photos under the door and the photos get scattered all over the room it’s a very emotional scene.I did not rate it, so it’s 8.5/10.Expenditure 80 for ticket+30 rs ticket and that day we went to riche street i did not buy anything but lime soda 12 rs, and then i went to a friends house near the light house, i was in the beach almost till 8, eat some fastfood on the beach 30 rs and left.Date: 30 Theater: Santham, Mount Road,no programs on 31 and 1st jan.
  • Avatar- I saw it yesterday, and the long wait was because i only wanted to watch it in 3-D and only 2 theaters screened 3-D version Satyam and Inox. Nevertheless, the wait was worth it, got to watch it in a good theater with 3-D and most importantly in english. Story was a bit repetitive, but what made this whole movie different than the others is the graphics and special effects, a new language Na’vi was developed a new planet Pandora was created with it’s full plants and animals, people, their religion all was made newly, no wonder it took 10 years in the making. Everything was done to perfection, you will spend most of the time just wondering how James Cameron thought about the planet’s anatomy right from scratch, Must watch, 7.5 for story, 10 for it’s special effects, average 8.5. Expenditure:120 for ticket, 30 rs ticket,30 rs briyani, then we went to the government exhibition and trade fair, Entrance 10, one ride on the TorraTorra 25 one lime soda 15, then to beach spent some 45 minutes of time over there and bought wrist bands for myself and friends 20 and on the way home snacks 25 rs. But it was a wonderful time.Date: 2nd jan, Theater: Inox, citi center.

Roughly it totals upto 600 rs, and that’s some spending for just 12 days for my budget, but as some credit/debit card’s tagline says some things in life are priceless, yes it was priceless and this was the best time i had in my life with any of my friends till date.
