I watched the IIFA awards today with mother who happened to be in a very talkative mood. I had the privilege of listening to the following running commentary throughout the show.
When Dharmendra was on stage with his two weepy sons - "Oho! Why he didn't bring his daughters also on stage? Eediot fellow."
At AB & AB.2 - "Both father and son need to shave, chee disgusting it looks!"
At Kangana Ranaut's outfit - "Oh my god! What is she wearing? What can you not see?"
On Shilpa Shetty's dancing - "Why she is shaking only one side? She will dislocate her hip."
On Karan Johar: "Aah i like this boy a lot. See so neatly he's come off. I want to have coffee with him."
During the clip of the new Gandhi film: "What nonsense! Gandhi didn't look like that. Oh he is sitting on some seat aa? I thought why he is wearing a flared skirt?"
On Anil Kapoor: "You think his hair and moustache are both wigs aa?"
On Akshaye Khanna: "Who is that chapraasi fellow next to Anil Kapoor?"
On Lara Dutta's diction: "Who is she? So nicely she is talking no? Oho from Bangalore aa? That's why."
My favourite parts of the show - the Beedi performance, Shabana Azmi's beautiful saree. Anyone know who made it? Shilpa Shetty's crotch hugging pants - I didn't like them but it was fun watching mother make faces at the TV and finally Ritesh Deshmukh's new haircut. Who knew he was an Upendra fan?
