Today morning at 10 am.
I spent about 12 minutes at the toll gate to pay for my toll fee. Here is an outcome of my thought process:
16 lanes x 25 per lane = roughly 400 cars waiting to pay their toll at Gurgaon. Anybody will hate that in the morning hours.
Current processing time per car: 5 seconds after it has come to rest at the gate (amazing human feat by the way). It sometimes increases to a max of 20 seconds but they know to keep it under check. After all there are TWO people at every collector gate. The redundancy – impressive! Hats off to the people who return change against Rs 100, Rs 50 with efficiency that can only be matched by an automatic currency counting machine.
I still couldn’t help thinking how shitty the whole thing is. But it turns out I’m wrong.
Spoiler alert for those who haven’t seen Taking lives, Michael Clayton or Lootera.
Just came out of this movie and am starting to write what I feel about this movie right now. Trying not to mince any words or my reaction.
I am amazed at how the director made me change my mind about Aatmanand Tripathi in the midst. In the second half of the movie, I was convinced that he’d be killed by Pakhi with a knife through his heart just like Angelina Jolie did in Taking Lives. That’s what he deserved, didn’t he?
The other thing I am amazed by is how beautiful the expressions are on the face of Aatmanand Tripathi. I mean, he is able to pull off some act there. Reminded me of George Clooney’s face that was the only thing on the screen for two minutes at the end of the movie, Michael Clayton.
This movie tugged at all sorts of emotions with such impact! Rare movies, such.
I am pretty tripped out.
