Prabhat – At the Dusk…

Prabhat talkies, the best theatre in Pune – is a line which was true, may be before 2000. With multiplexes crowding the city, Prabhat stands at the dusk. I love the theatre, as it shows Marathi movies, at a decent(read very sasta) rate. Check what I had posted in 2o11 – Rs 24.50 + S.Charge… . Now it is 50 Rs. (It was 24.5 in 2011 Nov)

First Class - 50!

Have you visited Prabhat theatre? Can we have some suggestions to improve the theatre?

 

 

Bioscope…A lost memory

Sunday afternoon is a movie time. Me and Kaustubh , saw a different movie today. We saw this guy coming with a huge box which has cinema in it. Till he had lunch, we were in queue. I had never seen such a movie, was curious to see what is the mystery, why kids run this man (use to, now with computer games and multiplexes etc this is passé)

Waiting for OUR HERO to finish his lunch and set his  SHOW!

The show started! I saw ads cut from newspaper, right from Priyanka Chopra at some opening ceremony, Movie ads in newspaper, some news (in marathi). I initially thought that isnt it a great idea to show ads before the movie begins, but after the ads, there was no movie! 

As I watched he played some music. The show got over in about 40 secs. All I paid is Rs 10!

Me watching Ads (CInema). He moves a handle which allows a paper to roll over and I could see frames changing! Pretty much like a reel!

Now it was kaustubhs’ turn to  watch the same movie! Soon, we pulled some crowd for him, few more joined in this NEW way (actually a very old way) of watching cinema.

His name is Shahnawaaj. Age – close to 70, his eyes had visible cataract. We were at Sahakarnagar and he lives near Dandekar pool (Pune), so he walks few kms everyday,carrying this machine, spreading joy!

Kaustubh clicks Shahnawaaj, Me, Cinemascope machine and Gudiya - see that doll!

TAKE MY SOUL AWAY…

Nothing beats, to be alone! Thats the point when our Soul steps out and starts walking… we rarely turn back. We dont fight. We walk in exactly opposite direction. Have you ever felt this? This is the time when life turns… routine starts evolving and it becomes most dynamic. Your mind isnt tired at all! You wake up…Body tries to catch your SOUL.. Dream run begins.. Leading to YOUR ultimate goal! TAKE MY SOUL AWAY…

ONEwinged Beauty…

Nature never is beautiful all the time, it plays around in order to balance.  After moving through caterpillar stage and then waiting in a pupa to FLY, it never thought of landing on unlucky side. Nature wrote a different story, not blessing the butterfly with a strong pair of wings. This fella will never fly, it is waiting for a bird, who is deciding menu for its lunch. TAWNY COSTER (Acraea terpsicore) came out of pupa, only to complete NATURE’s cycle.

(Clicked this fellow few minutes later, when it came out of pupa, no matter how hard we try, it is going to be a prey)
