A movie is being made based on the book and the trailer looks amazing, unlike other movies which are based on books.

Yea me too. You may be interested in Megamind if you haven't seen it already.


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

Hey Jenny (Mod), You declared that The God of Small Things is your all-time-favorite. Have you heard about Talkhiyan(Bitterness)?? (I know the answer will be no.)
If you loved The god Of small things then it is a must-watch for you. It is a TV-adaption of the book. You can easily find it on Youtube.
Here is a review of both, Book and Drama(Not by me).


message 28: by Jenny (new)

Jenny Palliveettil (jenyalphinegeorge) | 638 comments Mod
I just read the review.. Will definitely watch it! :D

And, how did you know about these adaptation?! It's not thaaaat famous.


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes, This TV Adaptation (Sorry for Typing mistake in previous msg) is not THAT famous, Even this is a Pak-Drama and it's not at all famous there. (Though Popularity can never be the scale of Quality, So don't judge without watching it,Plz.)

Did you hear about the new TV Channel Zindagi?? It shows Pakistani Dramas (and trust me they 1000 times better than our Never-Ending-Serials).
I watched Zindagi gulzar hai (Fawad Khan, You know him?? If not Google him.) and became Fan of Pak-Dramas and Sanam Saeed's Acting skills.
I googled her and found that she played main character in Talkhiyan, the TV adaptation of The God of Small Things.

Because Pak-film-Industry is almost dead, so Drama Industry and Music Industry is doing great work.

Talkhiyan:19 ep

Zindagi gulzar hai (My Fav): 26 ep

Hey plz watch these two trailer of ZGH, you will love them.

Trailer 1

Trailer 2
These are not too big.

Karolina Kat (lindetiel) | 144 comments The biggest treasure that I discovered this year (or rather was introduced to) is David Gemmell's Troy Trilogy, a historical novel. It has a lof of fresh ideas and plays with classic Iliad and Odsyssey. The characters and plot are just amazing. The first part is Lord of the Silver Bow. Here's my rating with a few words: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

I know fawad khan and i have heard a lot about his shows :Humsafar and zindagi .Have to watch it !! Where can we watch online !?


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes all shows are available on youtube. I think you should watch Zindagi gulzar hai (Based on a novel by same name) first b'coz Humsafar (Based on a novel by same name) was a typical Sas-Bahu-Type Drama.


message 36: by Annette, The Manager (new)

Annette mathews (annettesara) | 1178 comments Mod
Okay , will it be there with Subtitles ?


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah,They are available with subtitles. All you need to do is Write 'Zindagi gulzar hai Ep 1 with Eng subtitles' in the search box of youtube.
But I wonder why do you need Subtitles? Don't you know Hindi??
Ohh, you are from Chennai so you know Tamil ?
Geet was in Hindi?? You watched it with subtitles?

Annette mathews (annettesara) | 1178 comments Mod
I know hindi. I watched geet with subtitles and madhubala without subtitles . But it would be good if there were subtitles.I am from kerala ,not chennai :) :) i reside in chennai
