Page 3 Review

There are higher 'intoxications' than alcohol. Movie is one among them, but very few of them creates the right mix. And the hangover last for some days.

Went for the movie Page 3 today. Had heard good reviews about it. Mihir was all ga ga for it. He only pushed for the movie, with Aditya as well who already had watched the movie and wanted one more shot. On inquiry we came to know that the movie was out of stock, hose full. Anyway wanted to watch some movie so decided on Black Mail. Say it conincidence or Luck that at ticket window instead of Black Mail I said Page3(slip of tongue actually), and we got our drink. Gang of five for the movie, Mihir, Aditya, Atul, Chaubey and Me. Had never been in such a silence amid a movie with such a group. Sure it made all of us thinking, sensitising our emotional cells.

Is someone asks me theme of the movie. It would be 'emptiness in glitter', 'everything is for selfish reasons', 'succumbing to system', 'fight with hope'...

Page 3 exposes the emptiness in life of socialites the rich and popular. All that glitters is not gold. These are people who attend and organise glamorous parties, seems to be leading a life some one would idealize. But there is not meaning to their life, everything is fake, insensitive and cold. There is no real happiness in their life.

People live for their selfish reasons. Friends hurt friend, Director mauls females, Lover fakes love for career, Actress gives up her esteem to get a break. Nobody seems to be caring of the means but the end.

There are people who are good, or who wants to be good, but they too are humans unable to take pressure from the system. News editor works for commercializaion, Cop has to leave criminals, Actress has to lure Director. One needs to succumb for survival.

Amid all these emptiness, and finite lives is glimmer of hope shown by characters Madhavi and Vinayak. They live for priniciple and values. They do what they want to do. They get hurt, system tries to suppress them but they still carry on.

In all, Page 3 shows the artificiality in the life of socialite which most of the common men women dream to live. The irony is the cynicism is given by biggest masala page 3 newspaper 'Time of India'.

An important aspect of the movie was very well defined characters. Here is dissection on some of the characters.

Characters

Madhavi - Protoganist, a sensitive girl from Bangalore, who wants to make career in Journalism. Reporter of Page 3, although not enjoys doing it.

She is shown to be observent of all the events pearl's marriage to an old mania, Gayatri's attempted suicide, her leaving mumbai.

BREAKING NEWS!!
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a

Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.
