While coming back to Delhi, we had to catch a train from Pathankot. We reached a few hours too early in Pathankot! So what to do? We decided to watch Love aaj kal ...again! There is a cinema hall just outside the bus stand in Pathankot, so here goes the whole movie watching incident!
First of all i was literally shocked, with my jaw touching the ground when i shouted Kyaaaaaa (visualize it in ekta kapoor style serial with showing my face from three different angles) to the guy selling tickets! Platinum lounge tickets ( a special area in the balcony ) only for Rs 70 !! By the way they did not print any seat numbers on the ticket!
When i entered the lounge and asked for my seat, the TC (ticket checker) said "arre sir kahi bhi baithieye.. apni hi jagah hai!!" But the hall was a good one, very neat and clean and only 4-5 people in the whole cinema + my gang. And then what happened was the most hilarious incident of my life!
Dhupppp!!! Lights went out!
Me: Abe kya hua?
TC: Sirjee light chali gai!!
(few mins later generator pulls in and movie restarts)
Me: Abe ab kya hua??
TC: Sirjee generator mein tel (diesel) khatam ho gaya hai.. Chotu gaya hai tel lene.. bas aata hi hoga!
(few mins later chotu fills the generator with diesel and the movie restarts)
Cheeeeen!! ( The side door opens filling the whole hall with light)
TC: Sirjee wo Mr XXX(some big guy) is coming, bas 2 min
Then comes a 225 pound big guy with his wife and another female.. And then the movie starts! Thankfully there were no disturbances till the interval! During the interval i went to washroom. There was a 12-13 year old kid playing kushti(wrestling) with the tap!
Me: kya kar raha hai bhai?
Kid: I want to wash my hands and this tap isn't throwing out any water!
Me: Dude.. it is a sensor based tap, keep your hands 1 cm away and it will start!
I went for a Long Term Fixed Deposit . When i came back after good 5 mins, the kid was again wrestling with the TAP!!
ME: Abe ab tak kya kar raha hai?
Kid: This tap isnt closing!
Me: Aaaargh! MOVE AWAY FROM THE TAP!!!! IT WILL CLOSE BY ITSELF!!
Kid: Bade pagal log hain.. itna complicated tap banaya hai to instructions kyu nahi likhte??
I banged my head on the washbasin !
Sala aisa mere sath hi kyu hota hai hamesha!! Anyways watching the movie in such a hall with such a great audience is a fun it itself and i am not lying! :D :D :D
