Reflecting on Special Chhabbis (26)

Finally watched Special Chabbis. Good work on the props & effects to get the 1987 look:
– Old currency notes
– Old vehicles including the old ambassador models and Maruti 800
– Got the number plate colours right – white on black for private & black on white for commercial
– Getting the old look of Delhi, Kolkata & Mumbai, especially of the airports and the skyline
– Old ad hoardings
– Old telephone sets
– Indian Airlines logo along with the food trolley in cabin

However, a couple of goof ups that I noticed:
– Showing a blue coach at the railway station when they were all brown in that era
– A Maruti 1000/Esteem (launched in the 90s) parked on the road

USA has gun control all right – it’s called going to war with other nations to reduce the inventory at home…

Watching the wheels

…people ask me questions, lost in confusion
Well, I tell them there’s no problem, only solutions
Well, they shake their heads and they look at me as if I’ve lost my mind
I tell them there’s no hurry, I’m just sitting here doing time
I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

– John Lennon (Watching the wheels)
