10 Things No One Tells You At Your Wedding

Wedding season is upon us and what better way to enlighten your day than to give you insights into the most annoyingly funny things you are going to experience in the next few months, at your wedding (while the singles laugh). Jokes apart, here’s a list of things that are the most peculiar memories that nobody talks about before their big day but usually end up laughing at, when they look back at their wedding day celebrations.

(Suggestion: Keep reading, it gets even more intriguing)

  1. You’re going to dislike most of your gifts

Don’t get too excited fellas, there’s a good chance that somebody passed onto you the gift that they did not like. It could be anything, you could get tons of grinders, really.

  1. You might look like a joker

Brides usually get one chance to get their makeup done – nobody sits for two hours straight to get a trial. Hence, let’s just hope your salon does not mess up.

  1. Disastrous Sangeet on its way

You’d call professional choreographers and back dancers and think that your Sangeet function would be like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani but in reality it would turn up exactly like a Salman Khan dance.

  1. Get ready to be picked up

Brides and grooms, this one is going to hit you hard…

Be prepared to be picked up on the shoulders by random uncles or friends and hear them shout “uthale uthale” or “hum nahin jhukenge” during Varmala, for no reason at all. It is going to be annoying but hold in tight – you got this!

  1. Say hello to no freedom

Yes, it is true. The more people you invite, the less freedom you get. Honestly, it can get very taxing, trying to listen to everyone & meet their expectations. So stay selectively aloof!

  1. Experience family drama

The worst part about having big Indian families is that someone or the other gets into an argument on petty issues like food, hotel rooms, or gifts, because let’s be real – are we really hoping to be one of Suraj Barjatyas?

  1. Your stuff will get misplaced

There are bigger problems like your clothes not fitting you properly or Pinky aunty not finding her earrings because of which you barely get the time to think straight and you forget what is where and what is supposed to be where.

  1. You look cool with hashtags

Sorry to break this to you but if you don’t have your own couple-hashtag then you are probably pretty outdated. What is better than a social media buzz about yourself right? At least that’s what everyone says!

  1. Get annoyed by in-laws

Now this one’s a little tricky – one of your immediate in-laws is going to annoy you and you wouldn’t know whether or not to rant to your spouse about this. So, unless your in-laws are straight out of a fairy tale or it’s a love marriage where you know your spouse, good luck buddy.

  1. The Male Rishtedaar Gaze

After a tired evening, you’d think you would get a chance to eat in peace but no, nobody accepts that. Jaan le kar hi maante hain. All your relatives, waiters, camerapersons would be standing on top of your head to get the perfect shot of you eating like a monkey.

But this is all in good spirit and nothing serious, to be very honest. We don’t want to scare  you (or do we?) but these small things are mandatorily occurring and nothing to be bothered by. If it is your main day soon, we hope you enjoy your wedding with your friends and family!

Oh, by the way,  do tag your fiancé or spouse for banter!

A perfect Holiday this summer

While the trailers made us feel that Holiday will be a war movie, the reality is quite different.

With every frame coming straight from the Tamil movie Thuppakki, Holiday does come with a holiday feel where neither the film makers nor the audience takes it seriously. Starring our favorite Khiladi; Akshay Kumar (Virat Bakshi, the never off-duty soldier), the movie comes with mindless action, melodious music and an almost intelligent plot with some loopholes howsoever.

Holiday review Jaipur Beat

Akshay Kumar is an Indian army soldier who has come to Mumbai for a holiday and to meet the prospective girls for marriage, but ends up stalking the girl he rejected in the first place; Sahiba (Sonakshi Sinha) and finding a new mission to save the maximum city from the terror of sleeper cells headed by the newbie Farhad Daruwala.

While he could have worked with the police taking in confidence his bestie Mukund (Sumeet Raghavan: Sahil from Sarabhai vs Sarabhai), he decides to do it all by himself with some help from Rocky (the sniffer dog) because obviously, the movie is about Indian army and not IPS. As this one-man movie proceeds with flashes of humour, action and intelligence, there are times when you feel what’s going on? How can this guy purposely send his own sister to a gang of terrorists? But there comes a justification in the form of a theory called ‘patriotism’ which could have been achieved anyway. Except a few places where it seems dragged(scenes with Govinda as Akshay’s senior in army) the movie goes on quite smoothly without any significant twists and turns and before you feel any thrill or chill, it ends.

akshyaholiday1

Before we forget, amidst all this you get to see glimpses of Sonakshi Sinha who is a boxing champion (justifying her size and muscles). Just like her previous movies, she has got absolutely no connection with the plot of the movie. She occasionally hangs out and flirts with Akki, sings songs and dances in weird and incomprehensible outfits and doesn’t let go of her favourite monochrome dress even in the movie. Somehow, she still manages to look pretty at times.

Holiday review Jaipur Beat

Akshay Kumar once again charms with his athletic body and macho moves proving that he’s surely the best looking actor in the 40+ league of Bollywood today. The direction by A. R. Murugadoss stays crisp with all the actors having done justice to their roles except the new guy Farhad who fails to impress and sometimes looks even more clueless than Sonakshi. Music by Pritam especially ‘Tu hi toh haiand Shaayraana are pleasing to the ears while the rest are forgettable.

aaj-dil-shayrana

However, the best part about Holiday is that you can actually send your brain and logic on a holiday, sit back with popcorn and enjoy 3 hours of action, comedy, romance and drama that will bring some relief this summer.
