saw some trailers of "Meenaxi". First impression is pretty good. The song in the trailer "yeh rishta kya kehlaata hai" is easy on the ears. and the background score in the other trailer was quite promising too. The cinematography was great as it always is when Santosh Sivan handles it. And then there is Tabu - she either does crappy movies or really interesting ones. This one seems interesting. As does "Maqbool". Its trailers look really good too. There's this song which goes something like "jhini jhini jhini..... jaaoon main jaaoon piyaa ki gali" - it sounds great, I have been humming it since morning. As for "Meenaxi", its music has already released but I havent yet got time to listen to it. I hope its as good as the first glimpse suggests.. "Tehzeeb" was very unusual and took a LOT of hearings to get used to.

Talking about trailers, "Eternal Sunshine of a spotless mind" has a good theatrical trailer. It has Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst and Elijah Wood. looks like a fun movie.

Also, read the epilogue of Triangle Prophecy yesterday. And it wasn't as uninteresting as I thought it would be. There's an unexpected twist (as opposed to an expected twist??) in the end. More importantly, the series has been given a fitting conclusion. There aren't many appropriate ways in which you can end a seven part story about a boy who finds out that he is a wizard in the first part and goes through infy adventures through the rest of the story. It just won't seem nice to read something like "and Harry joined $quidditch_club and married $girlfriend and lived happily ever after" or that he became an auror or anything like that. He either will have to die or something like what Barb came up with in TP.
