We still know what I am going to write but I would still like to blog about it. Lets say : A tribute to a great director and a movie, Student of the Year.
Karan Johar! I respect you for what a great director you are ! But..Why? Why do you do this to us. The movie “Student of the year” comes out straight from the Old Library shelf classified as ‘Aesop’s fables’. In which part of India do we have a college like that? Forget India, I don’t think any good Universities abroad has glamour quotients like that. If such colleges exist I do not think a guy would give a rat’s ass to entrance exams like IIT JEE, AIEEE, GRE. We would take the next train to that place having your hypothetical non-existent college and stand in queue for good.
Well, we are no expert movie critics but we are not dumb enough to let you play with engineering student’s frustrations and especially a fresher’s expectation of a COLLEGE. It won’t take rocket science to know the basic differences. Perhaps a movie which we, the normal college junta, can relate to would be much better. Right? You don’t get to see a guy, especially not a +2 student, coming in a Ferrari, extremely hot models walking around in hot pants in the libraries. Well, doing some elementary study on what was shown in “Student of the Year” and what I experienced during my college days, the basic differences can be shown as follows:
(Left: A Hypothetical college from ..umm.. lets say K Jo’s SOTY and on the right : Normal Indian colleges (barring the likes of National college Bandra, St. Xaviers, NIFTs)
1) Freshers and Ragging :
2) How Girls go to college :
3) How the dudes go to college:
4) Academics in college :
5) Hangouts and Parties in college days:
6) Last but not the least on Extra Curriculars : SOTY students are too good at any damn sports, races a Ferrari, plays the guitar like Santana and drums like Mike Portnoy, got the moves and parties like Jagger and still manages to have no problem with attendance passes with flying colour, bags the prestigious title of the movie name itelf and bags the highest paid job. You don’t say?
Where as, on a parallel universe, you( likes of Unmukt Chand) represent India and win the cricket Under 19 world cup and the college Dean still tries to detain you for low attendance You party like a rock star dunk like Micheal Jordan and win laurels for your college and you flunk your exams and get year backlogs and by the time you pass out you still remain jobless.
Karan Johar! You trying to troll us eh???
P.S. : Do Share our woes with your friends.
And I do not mean to hurt anyone’s feelings in the process of humour generation. It is solely for making fun of us, the Engineering people and I apologize if I hurt anyone’s sentiments. Thank you. No doubt it is a good movie by a great director like Karan Johar. We can just about think of being at his level.
