you've started - you have to finish now! saves me finding and reading the story. I like your version. with pictures :)

Hahah and in the film, the bit where Raj goes "Do you think I'll be a star?" has me yelling at my screen "A SUPERSTAR! A MEGASTAR!"

It's an interesting exercise, because it's easy when Bhansali has stuck close to the story, and infinitely more challenging where he departs from it. It throws that into relief for me.

I'm actually thinking of doing it again with Ahista Ahista at some point. Yes, I make a habit of playing with an idea until I wear myself out with it, I do that with my knitting, too.

Ness

Well I think that's exactly what *I* need to see, for one. The bits where Bhansali has radically departed from the original story, so maybe I can pinpoint the parts a bit easier that don't work for me, and go THIS IS WHAT I DO NOT *GET* SANJAY.

But you can do the hard work on that :)

I think one of the things that's striking so far is that he makes Sakina more mysterious than the women in the story, and that might be fine if Sonam had the experience as an actor to pull that off.

And the woman in the story doesn't spend so much time rebuffing the dreamer. She quickly accepts his offer to assist her when the drunk shows up, and she readily listens to his babbling, and when he wishes to meet her again, she more or less says she certainly can't stop him since she has to be at that spot again herself the next night.

So, already, Bhansali's attempt to shroud things in mystery and have Sakina resist Raj is a change, and is handled awkwardly, in my impression.

WAW this is an AWESOME Idea. Love IT!
you could have gone one step further and made speech bubbles like a comic:-)

katherine

Thanks -- and is it sad of me to want a Mac so I can have that program that makes comic strips out of your photos? (No, it's not, it's awesome.)

I was just thinking this morning I need to get to Part 2 of this....
