Ghajini 'n' Rab ne Banana Di Jodi - Astrological Antagonism


So I was browsing today to find out if any early reviews have popped up for the much awaited RNBDJ. Unfortunately none as of now, but I sure did come across an interesting article which speaks in length about two biggies of this christmas, RNBDJ and Ghajini. It was comparison in many angles. Although I didn't care much about most of the comparisons as they were talking about history, current situation of producers, their new looks, new actress and so on, I was pulled into one comparison which I thought was pretty influential and vital. No its not the director or the music. Its the biggest name in the universe Mr. Niraj Mancchanda, Milky way Galaxy's most renowned astro-numerologist. He, apparently from his calculations using latest technologies such as Abacus, has come up with this comparison -

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi comes up to number 42. Dil To Pagal Hai came to the same number 42. Everyone knows the box-office prospects of Dil To Pagal Hai and with a good title, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has good chances at the box-office”.

About Ghajini Mancchanda says, “ Ghajini sums up to number 17. The fate of number 17 can be summed up by the film Saawariya which came to the same number. Much like Saawariya lasted only till the craze of Ranbir Kapoor survived, even Ghajini will last only till the craze of Aamir’s new look survives”.

So there you go folks. The Man has said it. According to him RNBDJ should be a hit in the lines of DTPH, even though musically its nowhere near it, and Ghajini should be a flop like Saawariya. How is this man still in the business ? Even in bad times like these ? Does that make his profession the most stable one of all? Now what happens if his prediction goes down the drain ? Can we kick him hard in his butt ? Or should we just leave him to do his thing, as the reason for his survival is the aam junta who believe in him. They believe in him coz according to the poor souls, if they succeed with his recommendation, its becoz of him, and if they don't, then its their bad luck. You know what. I've heard of guys on crack make more sense than that.

Now check this out, stars such as Isha Gopikar and Sunil Shetty changed their names as per recommendation to Eesha Koppikhar and Suniel SHITty. So in other words, these stars went to such a low level that they even didnt mind to change their good names to ridiculous and dumb ones. Thanks to Niraj. Now will he do the same if his predictions keep failing? If so then I have a suggestion, how about Niraj Mancchandi ?? :)

Having said that I am eager to watch both films. I personally favor Ghajini as its gonna be different, has Aamir in it and has got rocking music by ARR. However I'd also watch RNBDJ for SRK and may be for Adi. I don't trust YRF any more as they are constantly coming up with Duds. Lets hope for the best !!!
