Give us a believable plot and we're game. And that's what Game is — believable, though your belief gets a bit stretched at times. But what else can you expect from a commercial masala flick? It has the right dose of romance, comedy, action and incredulity to make it big at the box office. The script is crisp, thanks to its Tamil film industry origins, and the pace is engaging.

But — pardon my nagging curiosity — we would surely love to know the source of all the weapons in circulation in the flick. And, of course, the way they seem to materialize out of thin air! You may be in the army, may be a hot shot intelligence officer, but even the mai baap of them all, James Bond, is helpless without Q! So, Abhimanyu providing 12 bags with loaded handguns to his army-mates right after a black-tie wedding is a bit...ahem! How do we put it? Far-fetched? Guess that's the word.

But don't judge this book by a few of its pages. It's a good package — light in parts, nail-biting in others. Jeet looks every bit the shrewd army intelligence officer, Subhasree is all smiles as his pretty fiance, Sudipta Ballav shines as the tense cop and Abhimanyu's harassed friend while Saurav Chakraborty adds a Bollywood touch to his character of a merciless terrorist mastermind. And as we mentioned earlier, the storyline is engaging and racy. Director Baba Yadav deserves quite a few pats on the back for that.

As for the technical departments, well, P Shelva Kumar has done a commendable job as the cinematographer, especially during the adrenaline-pumping chase sequences. But the special effects leave one pining for some more realism. The blast scenes — in a bus and then a ferry — are too old-school in this time and age. The days of superimposing fire on an object to depict a bomb explosion are long gone.



The music is mediocre at best, though the song sequences are not ill-timed. But it's always kind of jarring when the lead pair suddenly starts dancing or riding superbikes in Dubai right after sharing romantic looks in some locality in, say, south Kolkata! That always gets my goat. Don't know about the rest of you. But trust me, Game is an intelligent movie, with a lot of firepower and mindless fun. It's the kind of movie that doesn't, for a minute, make you regret why you bought that ticket. So, go, have fun. The game is on.

I believe it is a habit which we have unknowingly developed and not the weakness of mind. Like any other challenge we can overcome this with PRACTICE ( thumb rule given by Lord Krishna to Arjun to rule your mind ). Though it seems theoretical but trust me it works 100% . Start adopting small changes in your habit.. For instance even while cutting a lemon... Concentrate there and IGNORE (** don't fight restraining them) any thoughts which come to your mind other than to your aim to be achieved. .. These small changes will accumulate to reform your control over mind over a period of Time !
