So day one of the three day weekend and I had some ideas on what to do but in the end I decided to just go to Edapally and have lunch & watch a movie in Lulu Mall. So that’s what I did. But 11:30 am I was off and away in an Uber to Edapally and got down at Lulu Mall. I like it the way it was today on the roads with hardly anybody out and barely any cars around what with it being both Vishu and Good Friday.
I went to a books & dvd/bluray store / gift shop on the 2nd floor before going to get a pizza for lunch. After the pizza and a strawberry / banana shake which was also very yummy, I went to wash up and wait until the movie started. Popcorn and Pepsi was my companion to the movie, which was Fast & The Furious 8. Now I haven’t seen any of the first 7 movies so why did I go in for this one? For lack of any good films that I wanted to watch in the afternoon. I decided to go for this film on a whim and I can’t say that it was a very enjoyable experience. Not the movie in itself, which was for sure just a 6 in the ratings for me. But I can’t stand it when you have assholes in the crowd and in India you tend to get them for action oriented loud bang movies.
Bunch of fans of Jason Statham, Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson in the theatre making a lot of noise and hooting. We also had a bunch of guys from the northern states who were making a lots of noise and creating a ruckus with their nonsensical loud talking. Idiots! Post the movie, I went for some shopping in the hypermart and then came back home. I reached back by 5:30 pm.
