Troy Wednesdays 21.2.18 Extinction

Extinction

It had come to pass, that the sun’s plan for his people had not failed. But all was at an end. It was the day of extinction for the Race on this world as the sun grew large and red in the sky, taking up most of the horizon as it became bloated and hungry.

Its radius had already swallowed the inner planets, and this world was next. The solar shielding was collapsing, the only time bought for its survival, long since paid with ancient technology, expired. The wall of plasma and radiation raced closer, its surface cooled, though that mattered little to the planet as it rushed outward.

So, tentacle in tentacle, they faced the fire, as their world was consumed by the dying might of the sun, no more to be a land of songs and glory but only dust and death, the last vestiges of its spirit already spread among the stars . . . .

. . . To remember the world and the Race that once was!

The Hungry Visitor

It was three in the morning as Daryl chanted the last words of the incantation, sure that this time he would summon a mighty agent to avenge the loss of his job.

Fire him from work, would they?!

The visitor stepped through the lattice of swirling green vortices into this world. It then reached behind itself, toward the opening, and closed the portal behind it.

Swirling green vortices spun, faded, and blinked out as the figure approached, claws glistening with slime and feathery moth-antennae flailing, its insect-like eyes adjusting to the light, as if the illumination was painful, causing it to wince at first upon entering the room.

Daryl got a good, long look at it, as it shambled toward him.

Grabbing him, it gestured again, this time opening another gate, and, dragging him along screaming, strode toward it, anticipating.

The visitor was hungry, and this would be its most recent meal in a long, long time. As it walked through its gate the visitor thought to itself. Why is it always morons who summon me? Once, I was called forth by some idiot in the 1920s who wanted to become a millionaire. Another, by this imbecile in the 1970s who wanted immortality!
Sigh . . .

An ultra-terrestrial’s work is never done. But on the other hand, slow-witted summoners are quite tasty when braised in a little blue wine sauce!

Tuesday Addas @ Indie Adda 20.2.18 Two talents of movies now

Let’s start the Bengali new year with two very talented actors of present times, one of them I think is Kolkata’s jamai- that is he is married to a Kolkata girl. I am not sure, just not into personal lives of celebrities, it is their talent that impresses me.

These two are Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. I have seen a couple of movies by Irrfan, and I really think he is very talented, you can see him in the new Jurassic park by the way. Nawazuddin Siddiqui on the other hand is very, very talented! Period! I have seen him shining along big stars and forcing viewers to notice him, ignoring the big stars like Salman Khan (Bajrangi Bhaijan), Amitabh Bachchan, Bipasha Basu- honestly I have seen three or four movies by this actor but whenever I think of these movies he comes to mind not the superstars he is working with him. Wish he was born in art film era or art films are revived again so that these two actors get their due respect. Siddiqui If you watch hindi movies keep your eyes open for Siddiqui. He hopefully will shine!

There are three actors a bit older than these two but are quite fun to watch, their movies are mostly entertainment based, but they are good show-mans. I have seen and enjoyed a handful their movies as “one time watch”. These are three superstars of Hindi movie- Amir Khan, Shahrukh Khan and Ajay Devgan. Shahrukh is best entertainer in the three. Amir and Ajay are very good actors and quite popular too. You will get their movies dime by dozen in internet. Check out shahrukh’s darr, Ajay Devgan has acted well in many movies, you can check out his Zakhm, Amir, well you can watch his rang de basanti, it is good.

Just as I said, Hollywood has stolen all India’s serious viewers, so, if art films are revived again they will have to struggle really seriously to regain the place they had and lost to commercial movies. But I will love to watch some really good directors and actors making fantastic movies like Arddhya Satya (if you can watch it with English subtitles you will know what fantastic actors and directors can create when they team up).

Troy Wednesdays 14.2.18 Transfiguration

Transfiguration

There was something wrong with his skin, seriously wrong. Oh, not its shade, as his usual olive tones were the same as always, and no signs of his allergy were apparent The wrongness came instead from its structure.

He stared disbelievingly at the thick, spiky hairs which had apparently grown from his arms overnight, like those of some monstrous insect. He had thought back to the drug ampoule he had been stabbed with only the night before. It contained a new nano-drug using DNA taken from beetles, designed to transpose with human DNA and enact the changes not only genetically, but in phonotypical trait-expression as well.

It restructured his body over time with its army of injected nano-bots, like a sadistic horde of tiny surgeons with instructions to alter him completely, or put another way, to rebuild an engine while it ran.

And it wasn’t just the hairs, but the increasing hardness of his skin, as he was growing a chitinous shell from his fingertips, already beginning to spread across his hands and wrists, with no end in sight. It grew even as he looked at it in horror.

He looked desperately about, to try to bandage his hands and arms to hide his deformity. But the room was empty. They had locked him in a cell, he suddenly realized. They knew this would happen, and were using him as a guinea pig! They knew!

He looked about and struggled to his feet. He screwed up the courage to look at himself in the mirror at the other end of his cell. Oddly, his vision had fragmented into something grainy, with multiple images, and as it continued, he looked closer, trying to focus.

And so looking, he saw himself in full.

And he screamed.

Tuesday Addas @ Indie Adda 13.2.18 Indian Movies 3

Let us pick up from where we left last month, that is, let us start talking about the luckier trio Manoj Bajpai, Rahul Bose Pooja Bhatt . These three are luckier than Ranveer and Hrithik.

Pooja Bhatt has acted in some fabulous movies, like daddy, zakhm, tamanna, dil hai ke manta nahin then she retired from movie world, one wonders why. She is a few years younger than me, so it has to be deliberate retirement and untimely one too. I will be quite intrigued to know why! Anyways, if you watch these movies you most probably will agree with me that she is a very talented actress.

Same thing applies with Rahul Bose, he fortunately have given us some fantastic movies, both in Hindi and Bengali, I actually like him better in Bengali movies because their stories and other things are more up to his class. He has acted in a string of good movies in Bengali, like Japanese bride.

Manoj Bajpayee too was lucky enough to get some good roles in his pocket before Hindi movies became minting machine, chanting only one thing “make more money”. He took quite a long hiatus from Hindi movies and has returned recently, I wonder if we will see some stunning performances from him in future.
