Yipppeeeee....I won.....I won.....I won.....phew....coining a 20 word caption for a contest was tougher than I had imagined it to be.

We had a "WL Caption Contest 09" at Writers Lounge, conceptualized and organized by Bhargav Saikia. Bhargav is a movie critic and I am in love with his reviews. You can head to his site for reviews anytime.

The participants were required to come up with a 20 word caption for the pics he uploaded. There were two pics, one from Ghajini (below) and the other from Saawariya. I went for the Ghajini one and here is my caption for the same:

"Muscular body se zyaada zaroori hai tandorust dimaag
Tann aur mann ki shakti ke liye Bournvita
Bournvita on, Tattoos gone!!"

The thought behind the same being that once Aamir starts drinking bournvita, he would no longer need to rely on tattoos on his body to remember things. Because a glass of bournvita everyday will ensure that his brain is fit, well oiled and working fine. So his frustrations and pains would vanish. Blame my brand background for coming up with a product campaign instead of a caption. I stood second and won a DVD of Dev D for these 20 words......isn't it fantastic?? Yeyyyyyy!!

Here is the winning entry by Pulkit. He won DVD's of DDLJ and Oye Lucky Lucky Oye!

"Garmi ke mausam mein...chimti aur taaron ke bina khidki pe dhoti sukhane ka naya ishtyle...thanda thanda cool cool"

This contest was preceded by a "Warm up Caption Contest" around a picture of Herapheri. Here are my takes on this picture. Blame my twisted lil brain for all that is to follow :-)

"Ek puppy ko na maani, kaahe ki ab yeh jawaani"

"Ab haseenaon ko sarr ghumaane par majboor keejiye...Pushpa baniyaan and underwears hi pehaniye...Haseenaon ki pehli pasand"

"Baap ban ne ke liye kissi haseena ke saamne na gidgidaaye. Ghar le aaye Energy 32 capsules. Shaan se poocho..."Maa Banogi". Energy 32 capsules...Real capsules for real men!"

"Kyun dekho Bipasha jab dikh sakti hain Pamela. Puraane chasme tyaago, Crizal ke chasme apnaao"

Kudos to Bhargav for organizing this contest. I will forever treasure the prize. Hope you had fun reading our takes on these pictures. Enjoy!


P.S: I know, i know....have not been that active of late. A big big sorry from my side. A lil tied up with work. I will be back with a story and make up for my absence. In the meantime, you would want to check out, which we are currently working on. Live your bollywood fantasy and have fun! Lights...Cameras....Actionnnnn!! :-)
