Before you jump into conclusions let me tell you clearly that if any of you came to check out some review about the movie IRON MAN then i am extremely sorry to say you are in the wrong place. This post of mine just shows an outburst or u can say rant and rave describing the difficulties i faced to watch this movie.As the Title says IT was nothing less than a mission impossible for me to reach the theater where it was being played.
It all started with a call from one of my friends ganeshan (gannu) asking for me to come for the movie ( 1 pm show at satyam ) which we had been planning for quite some days now but every time it got canceled for some or the other reason. Today too , Unfortunately i had some work which was already getting delayed from past 1 week ,so i said him a flat NO and asked him not to book ticket for me 😦 .
Then as i was preparing to go out for that important work at about 10:30 i got a call again from gannu who seemed to be in a bad mood this time .I asked him his problem and he told me that mistakenly he has booked 3 tickets for them 2 times 😛 .So which counts 6 tickets totally for just 3 persons .He asked me to come to the movie in any case as he dint want the tickets to get wasted. i said YES half heartedly keeping in mind the Blistering sun that was out in the sky 😦 .
Satyam complex is about 20 -25 KM away from my house so i started at about 11:30 which is still quite early for a 1 pm show.I went to TAmbaram santorium station got myself a ticket to chrompet (to catch a bus from there) .I waited there for a few mintues and looked down at my the watch , it showed 11:40 no train!! I waited, waited and finally the train came and when i got down at chrompet which ironically is just the next station to sanatorium , the time was 12 sharp.I had a comfortable 1 hour before the show could was schelduled to start. 5 mintues went by and with that about 10 buses passed by but none of the buses among them was to my destination . Thank goodness they had just built a well shaded bus stand so i was able to stand in that scorching sun .5 minutes became 15 minutes there was still no clue of the bus ,i needed to get into . I was getting quite peevish and started thinking of returning back but then dint cuz it was a loss to gannu ( each god damned ticket had costed 120 bucks that means 120×3 bucks waste for 3 extra tickets ).
Finally i saw a bus 18 E , far and instantly looked at my watch , 12:20 ( 40 minutes is the actual time from that place to satyam complex) so felt relieved . just as the bus came near the stop it sped along instead of slowing down. BAST##D !!! that was my first reaction .i was clueless why he did like that.The time in my watch was 12:23 and I was helpless. I needed to wait .I waited again and the when the bus came it was 12:36 i knew i would be late so i called gannu and asked him to come out once i reach the satyam complex.
Adding insult to the injury the bus dint seem to move ,it was literally crawling on the road..I wanted to go to the driver and shout put on the accelerators you AS# #### . but again i was helpless I waited again and cursed myself . It was as if i had to wait till eternity ,when i was finally near my destination the time in my watch was 1:20 . Actually the stop is about 500 meters away from the theater so i thought of getting down in the signal . MY lucky day the signal was green and the bus went right ahead and stopped at spencers (one of the malls in the city) bus stop . SO now i had to go back again on the same road in which i had come . BLoody hell ! i ran like i had never before till the theater came to my sight. I had literally bathed in my sweat :angry: .Went to a shop near the theater got 2 packets of drinking water , gulped them and went inside the multiplex. Luckily another guy was late too and he was waiting for me with the tickets.
A final look down on my watch , itshowed 1:30. i thought OK , 120 bucks , 1 hour wait in red hot sun ,a drive in a motarized bullock cart and a 500 meter sprint all for a movie .What the hell !!.I must be insane. We Went inside and located our seats which was an arduous job too as it was quite dark and i made myself comfortable but thanks to my sprint the AC was of no use i was still sweating badly. AT a point of time i thought of removing my T-shirt 😛 but then thought abt the level of decency they maintain there and more over no one would be able to see my six pack abs 😛 in the darkness so dropped the idea 😉 .
With no other go i had to just sit adjust and watch the movie . How boring .!!
Phew!! Luckily the movie turned out to be pretty good. Nice story line . Awesome Special effects . And a funny climax.I guess we could expect a wonderfull IRON MAN PART 2.
Ok. now that u have come so far u could have a look at the review here. 😛 I am in no mood to make the post further long by writing a review and moreover it would be bizaare to read a review from a guy who went for that movie 30 mintues late 😉 .
😆 What a day!!!
I saw the movie in City center and without ant of the problems you faced. But remember, it could have been worst. 😛 You could have reached when the end credits were rolling. 😛
