IIFA 2015 Part 2 : IIFA Main Awards

To read IIFA's story part 1,you can click HERE

Since we can't meet our favourite stars during the gala screening, we decided to go to Putra Indoor Stadium early. The event was scheduled to start at 7.30pm, but you know crazy fans (including us!) arrived at the stadium at 3pm! For the first time in my life I have waited for more than 4 hours under the scorching sun to meet RANVEER SINGH!

the green carpet was not ready yet when we arrived!

being interviewed by Astro BollyOne!

While we were waiting for the celebrities, the journalist from Astro BollyOne interviewed us and asking few questions about IIFA. "Which celebrity that you want to meet tonight?" Of course I said Ranveer and Arjun! "Who's going to win tonight?" and I said Shahid Kapoor for Haider!

We were upset because the crew won't allow us to enter the green carpet area. All of us need to wait at the outside to watch the arrival of the celebrities. The first to arrive was ANIL KAPOOR. Can't believe he's already 59 because he doesn't look like one.

Then other celebrities arrived at the green carpet. We saw Sonakshi Sinha, Gulshan Grover, Jacky and Tiger Shroff, Shahid Kapoor, Anurag Kasyap, Zoya Akhtar, Shefali Shah, Rahul Bose, Anushka Sharma, Shraddha Kapoor,Hrithik Roshan and many more. The highlight of the day of course the arrival of Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. Almost cried because I can't believe I met my favourite jodi Ranveer and Deepika.

managed to click a selfie with Shraddha but I can't tracked the owner of the phone (picture credit to didiey)

Who cares about SRK or Salman when people keep chanting RANVEER! RANVEER! RANVEER! when Ranveer Singh came out from the car. Who cares about bebo when people are screaming out loud when Deepika's car arrived at the green carpet and keep asking where's Priyanka Chopra.

the arrival of king of heart, Ranveer Singh. He's so good looking! (video credit to didiey)

Flying kiss from Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone! (video credit to didiey)

Decided to enter the stadium after Deepika arrived because there're so many fans keep pushing us and of course it's annoying. On our way to the stadium's entrance we saw Sonu Sood's car and he gave a personal flying kiss to us!

the stage! (view from our seats)

The show started at 9 pm (1.5 hour late behinde the schedule). The "Zindagi Na Milege Dobara" opening act by Ranveer and Arjun were the best! Better than last year's opening act by Shahid and Farhan. Their parody of dola re dola from devdas were hilarious! They ended their opening act with tune maari entriyaan and both of us can't control ourselves and sing along with them!

Ranveer and Arjun's opening act! (video credit to didiey)

Despite of everything that has been said about the hosts on that night (they failed to impress,their jokes were irrelevant bla bla bla), they already did their best to entertainment all of us for 6 hours! I bet no one can be a host and cracked a joke for 6 hours like them. Some of their jokes are :

Ranveer : In Bollywood,everything stems from the pelvis
Arjun : Even in Ranveer's life,everything stems from the pelvis, uska naam hona chahiye tha pelvis presley

Arjun : What will Priyanka Chopra's website be called? Ranveer : Mary dot Kom!

Ranveer : Last year Anushka Sharma was seen in PK. This year, she's being seen with VK (Virat Kohli).

Ranveer : Where is Emraan Hashmi. He must not be visible because he played invisible man in Mr X. And our Shahid Kapoor is 'Mr Sab ka Ex'.

Arjun : Bipasha, why have you come Alone? Why don't you bring any Creature along with you?

They also made a joke on Ranbir Kapoor's Roy by saying "The film should be called 'Destroy' and not Roy." kakakaka

Let's not forget the epic performance by Parineeti Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha, Shahid Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Hrithik Roshan. Didie and i were singing,dancing,screaming from our seats. Didn't bother other people looked at us hohoho. My favourite performance was Sonakshi's! Don't want to talk much about the performances. You guys should watch it by yourself on Astro First or at Colors TV on 5th July.

The winners on that night already meet my expectations (because I vote for them!). That hilarious moment when Ankit Tiwari came to the stage to receive best playback singer (male) award and Ranveer asked Ankit to do the voice battle with him. Obviously Ankit is the winner! Both Ranveer and Arjun made a booty dance when Kanika Kapoor sang Baby Doll after she received the best playback singer (female) award.

witnessed the most romantic thing that happen in IIFA's stage

The most unforgettable moment that happen on that night was when Deepika came to receive the 'Woman of the Year' honour and Ranveer got down on his knees to flatter her with his romantic poetry. We were hoping he's going to propose her (well we know that's not going to happen)

Too bad we need to leave early and missed Hrithik's performance. Overall,one of the best night that i ever have. Need to thank TGV Cinemas for giving us the tickets. Met Deepika and Ranveer, I couldn't ask for more. Until today I still can't believe I already meet them. Another wish crossed off from my wishlists!

IIFA 2015 Part 1 : IIFA Gala Screening

I've been watching IIFA awards since they started this awards 16 years ago. After the success of IIFA 2014 at Florida,United States I'm sure that IIFA is coming to Asian country again and I have strong feeling that they will come to Kuala Lumpur. One day they announced this year's host for IIFA and i was right! They're coming to KL. Tak cukup dengan dengan tu, aku teka pulak tahun ni mesti Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor jadi hosts. And guess what? I was right for second time! I think I'm good at making a predictions hohoho.

For those who don't know what IIFA is all about, it is a indian film award,mainly for bollywood films. IIFA stands for International Indian Film Academy. Unlike other film awards at India, they're hosting IIFA at foreign country. Malaysia used to host IIFA at Genting Highlands 13 years ago. More about IIFA, you can click HERE.

I was so excited for IIFA 2015 until I saw the ticket's price. Too pricey for me because the cheapest is RM450. Even Taylor Swift's ticket was cheaper than that. Then I started to forget about attending IIFA and decided to watch it at home.

Suprisingly,2015 has been nice to me. During the first day of IIFA (5th June), Didiey said to me that she just won 2 tickets to IIFA Main Event on Sunday (7th June). I was so excited and been dancing in my office. Then I opened TGV Cinemas' facebook account and there's a contest to win the invition to IIFA Gala Screening of Dil Dhadakne Do. Well I guess there's no harm trying my luck in the contest. Then boom I won 2 tickets for the gala screening. Told didiey the good news and we can't believe that we're going to IIFA and meet our favourite stars.

The IIFA Gala Screening was held at TGV KLCC on Saturday (6th June). I've been dying to watch DDD since they started filming this movie. You can read my review/opinion about Dil Dhadakne Do at my previous post or click HERE.

Met Didiey for the first time after being friends since last year on Twitter

The screening started at 8.15pm but the fans already waiting for their favourite stars since 2 pm. I arrived at 6.30pm and the amount of crowd was unbelievable. There's fans everywhere at level 3 KLCC and of course I can't saw the stage (so many tall people in front of me) and I missed the chance to meet the casts of DDD. The main casts of DDD were there except our jaan Ranveer Singh. He flew back to India to celebrate Deepika Padukone's father's birthday. But I did saw Ayushman Khurrana and his wife, Ritesh Deshmukh, Genelia Dsouza and Jacqueline Fernandez. Jac even smiled at me and Didiey!

Jac Fernandez smiled at us! (picture credit to didiey)

TGV Cinema was closed for public on that day because they were using all the cinema halls for gala screening, and it was a private event. Only those who got the invitation can enter the hall. We received our tickets for both gala screening and main event at the counter. And yes another surprise for us. We won the main event's ticket that worth RM 1440. I've never been this lucky before. Graduation gift just came early hohoho.

Got our tickets!

Selfie with our jaan Ranveer Singh!

The movie started at 8.15 pm and ended at 11.00 pm. Even though I already watched DDD a day before,I still enjoying this movie. The audiences were crazy. We were laughing and screaming so hard (never happened in cinema hall before this) because DDD was funny. We also got a free popcorn and drinks. Only realized they were giving us free popcorn and drinks after we bought one =.=

After the movie ended, we ran to the ground floor to catch our train (because the last train was at 11.30 pm). Of course we had so much fun during the screening. Felt so lucky as a bollywood fans.

Entry about IIFA Main Event will be continue on the next post!
Till then,bye!

Movie Talk : Dil Dhadakne Do

I've been waiting to watch this film since last year. I mean since they started filming this movie. In addition, the main casts are my favourite (especially Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra). Dil Dhadakne Do is not you typical family-theme hindi movie. DDD is something else. I watched this film 3 times,yes THREE TIMES because best gila I can watch this for thousand times. First time I watched it with my bolly twitter friends kekna and mieza on the first day it released,2nd time I watched it with didiey and the casts of Dil Dhadakne Do during the IIFA Gala Screening (entry about IIFA coming up after this entry!) and for the 3rd time I watched it alone because emm emm i just love this movie.

Directed by: Zoya Akhtar
Music by: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy
Starring by: Anil Kapoor,Shefali Shah,Ranveer Singh,Priyanka Chopra,Anushka Sharma,Farhan Akhtar
Release date: 5 June 2015

The Mehras - Kamal (Anil Kapoor) and his wife Neelam (Shefali Shah),together with their children Ayesha (Priyanka Chopra) and Kabir (Ranveer Singh) are dysfunctional punjabi family. Kamal always proud with himself as a self made man,that managed to build his own business empire AYKA that facing the bankruptcy. He however has troubled relationship with his wife Neelam. Ayesha married with Manav (Rahul Bose) and set up her own online travel portal. Kabir unwillingly participates in the family business and yearns to pursue a career as a pilot. Kabir has a dog named Pluto (voice by Aamir Khan).

The Mehras

To celebrate the 30th wedding anniversary of Kamal and Neelam, they invite their family and friends for 10 days cruise trip across Mediterranean. Kamal and Neelam also have another agenda during the trip which is to get Kabir married to Noorie Sood, his friend's daughter in exchange for his investing in AYKA.

In the ship, Kabir meet Farah Ali (Anushka Sharma),the dancer on the cruise and fall in love. While Noorie falls in love with Rana Khanna,a son of his father's rival. Kabir and Noorie decide to manipulate their parents to believe they're having a relationship, but continuing their respective relationships. Meanwhile Ayesha wants to get a divorce from her husband,but her parents against it. Sunny Gill (Farhan Akhtar), Ayesha's love interest before she get married with Manav join them on the cruise and she still has a feeling towards Sunny.

Farah calls off her relationship with Kabir,when Kabir's aunt tell everyone about Kabir-Noorie's engagement. Elsewhere, Kamal saw Noorie making out with Rana, and is soon rushed to the hospital due to excess stomach gas. In the hospital room, Kamal tells Kabir that he saw Noorie with Rana, and asks him to call of the engagement. Kabir, in a bout of anger, admits to his family that he knew about the couple all along, and that he is in love with Farah. He also tells them of his intention to not work in the family business anymore. Later, while trying to settle down the problem between Manav and Ayesha, Kamal see Manav misbehaving with her. He agrees to the divorce and begs Ayesha for forgiveness. Ayesha finally reunites with Sunny.

Kabir tries to persuade Farah to forgive him, but she got fired from her job and leaves the ship. Kabir realises of her fate much after the ship has set sail. Kabir jumps off the ship in hope of his family rescuing him and helping him get to the shore. Kamal, Neelam, Ayesha, and their dog Pluto find a lifeboat to rescue him. The Mehra family is seen happy in each other's presence for the first time.

What I like about Dil Dhadakne Do:

1. I must say that Farhan Akhtar did a brilliant job writing the dialogue,especially Kabir's dialogue. There's a lot of LOL moment for example "that was epic,no that was epuke!" "practical?is that what they teach you in London?to be practical? *in british accent" "auntie that is butter knife" and many more!

ranveer is already hot then he decide to wear captain's uniform.super hot!

2. All of the main casts are damn good,especially Anil Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. DDD is Ranveer's best performance till this date after Lootera in 2013. The siblings jodi (Ranveer and Priyanka) are perfect. They look like the real life sibling. Shefali did really well as Neelam Mehra. But I wish Farhan and Anushka have more scenes in this film

3. The supporting casts really bringing up this film to the next level! It's been awhile since the last time Bollywood has a great supporting casts (I do love Hum Saath Saath Hain's supporting casts before this). I love Noorie and Rana's character, as well as Kabir and Ayesha's cousin Putlu.

4. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy did a great job for the soundtracks. I love all the songs,especially Gallan Goodiyan and Pehli Baar. One of the best soundtrack album for 2015.

5. I couldn't ask for more. Zoya Akhtar is one of the best director. First Zindagi Na Milege Dobara,now Dil Dhadakne Do. She really know how make her film different from others. I love love love the cinematography.

best line ever!

What I dislike about Dil Dhadakne Do:

1. There are few scenes that a lil bit draggy.

2. I wish Anushka Sharma and Farhan Akhtar have more scenes so we can see the romance between Kabir-Farah and Ayesha-Sunny.

Overall, 9/10 for Dil Dhadakne Do. Some people might not like it, but I do love this film. I love Ranveer Singh even more after watching this film.

yeah i love you too ranveer

So guys, go and watch this film. After all,it's been ages since the last time Bollywood have a good family themed movie.

Great Eastern Color My Heart Run

Sebenarnya nak buat review movie tapi macam bosan je asyik asyik movie review. So iols hold dulu review tu. Meh la cerita benda yang jadi last 2 weeks (kot).

Dari last year nak join color run. Tapi tak sempat nak register. Tahun ni aku google je color run, terus keluar Great Eastern Color My Heart Run ni, aku terus register tanpa was was.

Takkan nak lari sorang kan?Kalau lari sorang aku nak campak color powder tu dekat sape. Haruslah ajak amanda,ateng and mira. Tapi last minute amanda and mira tak boleh join,maka berlari berdua la aku dengan ateng.

Macam biasa la running event ni gather time dia time subuh.Sebagai orang yang berlagak cool,pukul 7 baru sampai dataran merdeka kakaka. Orang haruslah ramai,ada yang dah siap comot comot dengan color.

Before start lari (lari ke?) ada volunteers akan pass color powder.sorang dapat satu color sajo tapi ateng buat perangai dia amek sampai 2.actually semua buat perangai keji amek lebih dari 1 color. ye la kalau satu color je mana nak cantik baling kat baju ye dok?

Lepas launching ceremony,semua pakat berlari. first time aku tengok running event tak ramai yang lari. majoriti jalan berlenggang sambil baling color powder ke member. sepanjang 5km run tu ada 3 checkpoint (dah lupa rasanya 3) untuk top up color powder masing masing. ada jugak water station tapi by the time both of us arrived,tinggal tong je air semua habis.

Sepanjang lari tu tak mampu la nak amek gambar sebab takut phone kotor. ye la tangan dah penuh dengan macam macam color.

after the run. terduduk terus sebab penat kot

actually nak acah acah baling powder tapi tak nampak powder itu T_T
yes aku buang terus baju tu sebab tak rajin nak basuh

selfie sambil baring itu wajib. sebab aku tengok color run kat oversea semua buat macam ni kakaka

dah basuh pun tak hilang T_T

Overall, color run memang best.boleh la nak feeling feeling hindustan kejap. Ateng semangat sampai nak join lagi
