The World bows, Joker finally smiled at the Oscars

Last time when joker got the honour at Oscars, he was not alive. But this time he came out of the shadows to put a smile on everyone’s face.

And all his die hard fans could have said-

When you give him the Oscar, please introduce him as Joker . “

Though we will not complain the way he was introduced in the real world. “The Academy award for the best actor in lead role goes to-Joaquin Phoenix.”

And in Joker’s own words, “You get what you Fu…. Deserve”.

Yes all DC fans (this time many MCU fans loved it too) , you heard it right!


Joker has been finally accepted by the outer world. Oscar has accepted Arthur Fleck and honoured him for his successful act (not a failed one like in the story).


Only the second Joker or only DC character (Infact not any other comic book character won it, not even dark knight himself. ) to win it in acting category.


The biggest reason, this joker, won everyone’s heart is the emotions with which it connected with today’s vulnerable world.


From the protests at Hong Kong to anti CAA protests throughout India, from chaos in Syria to tensions between US and Iraq, we are witnessing apathy of governing authorities towards the common man. Common man never felt so lonely and helpless before. They want you to behave as if you don’t. We all are clowns, feeling the same pain as Joker. We can relate to him.

Arthur Fleck, a sick man, desired happiness which he never got. He was mocked, beaten and left for everyone to exploit. He cried, growled and imploded with us. He chose the wrong path and to be on the right side for such a man is extremely difficult. Joker is the mirror of our vulnerable society, a harsh reality. It should be looked like that though violence should never be encouraged.


Shifting to artistic point of view, Joaquin Phoenix is the next legendary Joker, everyone waited. Those nuances, giggles, laughs, emotions of a Joker cannot be replicated by anyone else.I can’t see anyone else playing this role better after Heath Ledger.


If you see other movies of Joaquin after Joker you will get glimpses of Joker in him from the beginning. He was quite destined to play this role.

Influenced by this legendary performance, I composed a poetry dedicated to Joaquin Phoenix

He danced at the oscars
Like a man who is possessed
Joaquin the Joker
Praised for his act
The act of a lifetime
The act which brought big smiles


And yes the whole world is getting crazier out there for him!

The other big winners are

Best original Screenplay –Bong Joon Ho (Parasite) and Han Jin Won

Best actors in supporting role-Brad Pitt(Once Upon a time in Hollywood), Laura Dern (Marriage story)

Best film- Parasite

Best actor in lead role female-Renee Zellweger (Judy)

Birds of Prey-Movie review

Sadistic violence, all for fun!


Birds of prey, as expected, is full of nihilism just like Joker. But joker was more realistic and thought provoking. On the other hand “Birds of prey” has little to do with feel and real world.


It’s a pure comic book-based entertainment, full of badass action, daze and is made for the die hard fans.


The story starts where the suicide squad ended. Harley Quinn broke up with Joker and she is messed up with that. She broke loose of Joker by blowing up the ace chemical factory with a bam. They had fond memories there .

When Gotham came to know about their breakup, all the grudge-bearers chased her to take revenge. Chief among them is one of biggest don of Gotham, Roman ‘Black mask’ Siones (Ewan McGregor), a sadist and misogynist.


Gotham ‘s villains think that Harley’s shield, joker is gone and now they can easily exploit her. That’s where she wanted to prove herself. She wanted to show that she can survive and is not a slave of men like Joker. She does that by kicking some asses with a lot of swag. This is her emancipation.


Siones is after a treasure whose key is in the diamond which is stolen by pickpocket, Cassandra cane. Siones captured Harley and her only chance to save herself is by finding that diamond. There follows a treasure hunt that unites other anti heroes, Huntress, Canary and detective Montoyo who want their own emancipation from the male dominated Gotham (Maybe that’s why they are Birds of prey) . They form a team and go on a rampage against the army of Mafia Siones.


In one of the scene, Harley tells Canary that ‘Harley’ is the one who serves. This inspired Canary to break loose of her Abusing master Siones. Women are not Puppets and they can handle their own world. This is the basic theme of this movie.


Margot Robbie is fabulous with her giggles, psychotic smile and her hyperactive, swaggy narration. The visual effects, action scenes with a lot of violence are OK. Overall, a movie for the fans.
I will rate it 3 out of 5 stars.


PS- Don’t wait for post credit scene. There is an audio of Harley just for fooling the audience where she takes the name of Batman and nothing else.

Selfless Stone

The Perceptions Square

I am a stone,
Throw me into the river,
Or crush me into powder,
But I will continue to live.
And serve my purpose
Which is to Give,
Shape to your God
Or to create your Abode
This is my selfless life,
Eternally continue to strive
Equanimity is my suit,
My elixir to continue.

Failures


The agony of failures, the misery of a failed man is extremely hard to comprehend. After many failures, he gains nothing but pessimism and frustration. It is very difficult to get out of that jail and start fresh.


You try to lift yourself up again. You try to be optimistic about your failures and you can only do that by constantly looking for ways or things to inspire yourself. You try to persuade yourself that this time you will get.


If you fail again, then what?


It is quite human that after years of failures you loose hope, you loose energy or motivation to start again. You think that you have fallen into the deepest pit. That is the hardest place to get out of.


But you have to live and for that you must try to stand up, again. You will be hit hard with those punches life throws at you but you have to survive. You have to try to motivate yourself.


But how to motivate yourself?


Maybe, failures are nothing but a state of mind. It could be a tiny ripple in the mighty ocean. You should try to live your life by doing things you love most, your hobby (or create a hobby). Sometimes you loose your way and forget about the things you love most. It is time to get back to that. The secret of happiness is something to do.


Write, sing, play guitar or do whatever you love to do. I bet, you will find solace in That. When it comes to me, writing soothes me, music heals me.


Life is a long journey. Let’s complete this journey together by making connections. This is the right path towards happiness and contentment.


Stay happy, readers!

Mountain

At the top of Kanyal hills, Manali

O mighty mountain
You are so cold
But your icy breeze
Blessed by life and soul

O misty mountain
You are so static
But your aura
Is so emphatic

Stand tall like a mountain
Against the fierce gale
Persevere like a mountain
Against belligerent snow and rain

The Picture- Short Story

The Perceptions Square

Kailash was staring hard on the cricket ball. When the bowler was about to deliver , a sudden thought struck him. It had happened to him in the past , the same scene in which he stepped down the wicket to hit for six and ended up missing the ball which resulted into their loss. This time he changed his tactics and the history, stayed inside the crease , took a huge bat lift and then the swing. Suddenly the picture started fading away and he woke up. He was disappointed once again. He lost the same match yesterday when he stepped down the wicket and it haunted him in his dreams. He lifted the morning newspaper and tried to ignore the city sports but he couldn’t. He saw the picture and smiled , the similar bat swing. The history changed. It was a dream Luck.
