The Boondock Saints- Every city needs them ?

Ok. This is a movie which would be loved for multiple reasons. It can be the two Irish Brothers who look so good in their roles, the sound theme , the throughout entertaining , hilarious yet meaningful plot, the use of expletives , the non linear story telling, the dialogues and infact the overall message the art-piece tries to convey.

I saw it again recently after the Mumbai terror attacks. My personal favorites from the movie

Favorite Scene (s)
1. Joke Scene - When the Funny Man tells the joke about a Mexican , African and American.
So the genie says to the white guy, uh, um, "What's you're one wish?" And the white guy goes, "You mean to tell me all the niggers and spics are out of America?" Genie goes, "Yeah." He says, "Well, um, I'll have a Coke, then."

2. The prayer in the church reminds me of my school days
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.

3. The shooting of Russian Mafia, the whole of the scene..the brothers hanging from the rope , the funny man coming to kill 9 people with 6 bullets, the reference to bad television ...everything

Favorite Dialogue (s)
1. We're sorta like 7-Eleven. We're not always doing business, but we're always open.

This one appealed to me instantly ..
2. D'you know what I think is psycho, Roc? It's decent men with loving families. They go home every day after work and they turn on the news. You know what they see? They see rapists, and murderers and child molesters. They're all getting out of prison. Mafiosos. Gettin' caught with twenty kilos. Gettin' out on bail the same fuckin' day.
Everywhere, everyone thinks the same thing: that someone should just go kill those motherfuckers.

Favorite Expletive(s) [ Category specially created for the film]
1. Fuck -Ass

2. I'd like to thank whichever one of you donut-munching, barrel-assed, pud-pulling sissies leaked this to the press.

To each of these I can add many more which are equally good or even better. Insert on a DVD and have fun !!

रूठ कर तुझसे मैं रहा नहीं पाता
यादें वो में मिटा नहीं पाता
लम्हे वो में भूला नहीं पाता
शिकायत हैं मुझे खुदा से
मिले तुझसे बगैर क्या मैं जी नहीं पाता !

देखकर तुझे लगा तुम चाहने के लिए हो
चाहकर तुम्हे लगा आजमाने के लिए हो
आजमां कर लगा अपना बनाने के लिए हो
शिकायत हैं हमें इस दिल से
हर आरजू पूरी होने पर नयी आरजू क्यूँ बन जाती !

एक हंसी से तुम्हारी, मुश्किलें चली हैं जाती
खुशबु से तुम्हारी बागों में बहार हैं आती
देख तुझे तो सागर में हलचल मच जाती
शिकायत करता हैं चाँद तुम्हारी हमसे
चांदनी भी तुम्हारे आगे यूँ ही फीकी पड़ जाती !

तुझे चाहने वाले हज़ार बनाएं
हंसी पर मर मिटने वाले तमाम बनाएं
हमारे जैसे भी बहुत कदरदान बनाएं
शिकायत हैं हमें इस जहां से
हसीन तेर जैसे ही सिर्फ क्यूँ दो चार बनाए !

शिकायत हैं धडकनों से अभी भी धड़क हैं जाती
शिकायत हैं साँसों से अभी भी चली हैं जाती
शिकायत हैं जिंदगी से, थम क्यूँ नहीं जाती
शिकायत हैं इस शिकायत से
शिकयत करके भी, तेरी याद नहीं जाती !

You and I

You are the cherry on the cake,
The sunlight shining on the lake.
You are the innocence of the daisies;
The freshness of the babies.
You are the smile that vanishes all pain,
The air after a rain.
You are the nectar which gets the butterfly,
The blue of the summer sky.
Daa Da Da Da Da Daa, Daa Da Da Da Da Daa

I wanna be the cake,
Wanna be the lake.
I wanna be the scarf to protect you from cold,
Wanna be the child to care when you are old.
I wanna be the rouge in your kiss;
Wanna be the laugh that gives you a bliss.
I wanna be the dream you have in the night;
Wanna be the light to make your day bright.
I wanna be your friend; I wanna be whom you love.
Daa Da Da Da Da Daa, Daa Da Da Da Da Daa

You are the reason I survive
Wanna be the why of your life.
You are the world to me,
Wanna be the eyes from which you see.
You are a god to me,
Wanna be a flower in your heels.
You are the blood that runs in me,
Wanna be the air you breathe.
You are a rainbow in the Beskids,
Wanna be the colors it needs.
You are the nectar which gets the butterfly,the blue of the summer sky.
I wanna be your friend;I wanna be whom you love.

I know I am having a laugh, Hope you are getting the bliss.
Daa Da Da Da Da Daa ,Daa Da Da Da Da Daa

No arrows for direction, No measures for distance
The roads I can ask; the skies I can talk.
Rays of sun to tell me the time
And winds to sing story of older times.
The little girl speaks words so polite
Alas, for the language I am naive.

Mountains to give me a high
And castles, if only one, I could buy;
Sit on swings of leaves when the legs get tired;
Drink from the river when the throat gets dry.
Take company with edelweiss and hyacinths
Holstein and Simmental to bid me good bye

Oh tram, take me to my ElDorado
Terra firma where i am Incognito

The Beach at Cannes

The beautiful boy playing with the ball
Behind the dog, occasionaly taking a stroll
Jumping and splashing up water
Building castles and making merry
Running behind the pigeons to make them fly

Grows up and swims far in the water
And picks up a friendly fight
Jogs across the beach to see the chics

When he finds his honeymoon mate
Sits, Loves and makes imprints
Enjoys a ride in the yatch
While the Chinese walk with a guide
His psyche thinks of the boy and the dog

And grows his hair white
He then spends hours playing the poker
And see the child do a somersault.
Drinking his favorite brand of wine,
He comes there to see the October sky
and sit with the pigeons he once used to fly...
