My description of the movie: Ashoka the Hero is a movie about a small boy whose father, a policeman, was killed while catching hold of a robbery. Ashoka was very young at that time and he didn't remember the incident.

But this doesn't deters little Ashoka to become as brave as his father. Soon his bravery was spotted by 'Masa'. Masa is none other than the son of famous historical figure emporeror Ashoka.

Masa hands over a magic madallion to little Ashoka. The magic madallion is greatly powered from the energies of the sun. Then he instructs him to save the city from anything happening bad.

The story turns around how the boy saves the city and people from bad events and becomes a hero. Animation is good to Indian standards. Both younger and older ones will enjoy the movie

New Ibibo Messenger

Ibibo has recently launched a very good messenger for Indians. I think its one of the best messenger available for Indians. Earlier we only had yahoo and 'rediff bol' as choice but now ibibo can be our another choice. I am sure it will get popular very soon. Ibibo is already a very popular online gaming and social networking site especially among Indians.

[Image: Snapshot of Ibibo Messenger taken on my computer running windows 7. Messenger is signed in with my Id at Ibibo. You can enlarge image by clicking it to view the details. Warning:Not to be copied]

This messenger has a very good interface and application runs very fast on my computer. It launches very quick and navigation is easy unlike yahoo, msn or rediff bol. Sign in also doesn't takes any time. In rediff bol and yahoo many users suffer sign in failure. You can also play your favorite ibibo games right through the messenger application. However, it is still in beta and final release is expected to come soon.

Ibibo has worked great to build this ultra soft messenger and I have become a fan of this. You must try it !!

'Toonpur ka superhero' is a 3-D animation movie based on life of a father Aditya Kumar ( Ajay Devgan), who wants to become hero in the eyes of his children. Although he is a famous superhero on TV, his kids deny to accept him as a real hero. This makes him tense.

His fortune changes when he was kidnapped by 'devtoons' of Toonpur. They want him to fight with tyrant Jagaru and his toonasurs so that democracy is reestablished in Toonpur. However, Aditya hesitates to go with them. But when 'bolly' (a character from toonpur) provokes him by saying that he is a fake hero, he decides to go and help Toonpur.

Aditya with his friends attack Jagaru and defeat the Toonasurs. However, in this attack many of his friends got kidnapped by Jagaru. To free them Aditya has only one way i.e, to get the 'toonastra' from 'Rubdoot' and then delete or erase Jagaru. But Jagaru get this information and kidnapped Aditya's family.

Aditya finally save his finally and also finish Jagaru. He then becomes a hero both in Toonpur and in the eyes of his children. And a happy ending.

How to send free SMS through internet

My friends always ask me how do I send them free SMS. So I thought to share the idea. Here is how I do.

Sending free SMS 'es is very easy. There are various sites offering free SMS through their website. But they usually offer limited number of SMS or the user can't send messeges until he/she doesn't gets any reply from his/her friend.

To outcome this issue you need to sign up to a large number of websites offering free SMS. You can also send two free SMS 'es daily from Yahoo messenger or Rediff bol. If your friend replies you can even send more free SMS 'es. If they don't reply you can still send two free messages every 24 hours. If you don't send too much SMS'es then you should use these two messenger. But if you have to send too many messages then sign up to several websites offering free SMS service and send multiple SMS 'es for free in a single day.

Here is list of websites offering free SMS 'es :

'Tees Maar Khan' a big disappointment !!

While I have written on various issues this is the first time I am going to write something on movies. I personally like movies very much and this is my favorite past time. But due to too much busy schedule I was not able to watch any movie for the past two months. This was also due to the fact that my computer was not working properly and I prefer to watch movies on my PC.

As my computer was not working I decided to go to cinema hall to watch 'Tees Maar Khan' on Christmas. I was very excited to watch this movie because of its name. I have heard this name many times before in my mothers village where a old person has been named 'tees maar khan' by some naughty children. So this was another reason for my excitement to watch this movie.

When the movie started, my excitement increased and I thought "wow this was the movie I really wanted to see." Opening scenes where Tees Maar Khan's mother was watching movie of a thief and how that little Tees Maar Khan was learning those thievery acts inside his mothers womb were awesome. And then came the sachin's scene where he described how he catches Ismail (pronounced 'Smile' in the Movie) and 'Master India' but failed to catch 'Tabrez Khan' aka 'Tees Maar Khan'. These were very good and hilarious scenes and best part of the movie. Afterwards movie was 'bakwaas' right from akkis entry where he escaped by opening his handcuffs using hair clips of a girl on the airport. You need to switch off your mind to believe in that scene that he really did escape using that hair-clip. Movie was forcing me to believe that Tees Maar khan is really such a big 'chor'. But none of his acts looked like he was such a great thieve with so much name and fame. The way he looted the train was also a 'faltu' way and nothing special there. I don't recommend this movie to watch and waste your money. The movie was also loudy at some parts and it made me feel irritated.

I was expecting that movie will feature a thieve who will make big thievery all over the world in some unique style. But he did such a silly loot of train, in that stupid village, with that stupid trick which in real world is not even possible, unless every person in this country become so dumb like those villagers and that actor Adarsh Kapoor (Akshay Khanna).

However, I must credit movie makers for their good opening scenes and nice songs. Title Song and "Sheila ki Jawani' has already rocked the country. And that song "sheila..." has already created controversy in some parts of the country giving some extra boost to the movie.

I would suggest Farah Khan to work on story rather than decorating scenes. I came to know that like other bollywood movies this was also a copy of some foreign movie. I suggest film makers to come with orignal stuffs. That works !!!

Its only my opinion. Please comment what do you think.
