Her Glassy-eyed Stare


She was staring afar. She wasn’t blinking. Her eyes looked as if anesthetized.

He: Hey! (He revived her from the reverie by touching her hand)

It was strange, she wasn’t startled as if she knew where she was and yet lost. She looked straight in his eyes.

She: You know what I want now? I want a glass of wine or shots of vodka would be better. I want to drown in reality.

He dreaded her glassy-eyed stare. Never did he witnessed such expression in the years he had known her. For the first time, he was scared. What will happen when he will let her go?

Heart Or Brain In Love

And maybe someday I might find the reason 
why fate threw us apart
But for now
I shall keep cursing the time
I acted under obligations 
shoved you away 
breaking each other's heart

Forever

I don't want to experience ‘forever’, 
except when I am in your arms

Remember The Night We Met!


Image Source: Pinterest
Remember the clinking of glasses
the sharp taste of firewater

Remember the frivolous talks
the mirth in it

Remember the hesitancy
the entwined fingers

Remember the stare
that pierced my heart

Remember the brush of lips
the tight snug

Remember the warm breath on skin
the cease of ‘what ifs’

Remember the wound of love
the ecstasy in the kisses

Remember the caresses
the deep touch within

Remember the night we met
when we became 'one'!

Love Is An Illusion

Forget Me

Forget
The day we first met
And forget
The path walked together

Forget
I make you smile
And forget
The secrets we share

Break the mirror
If you see my reflection
And turn all the memories
into dust

Do not feel me
in the raindrops
in the spring winds
in the autumn leaves

Do not find me
in the footprints on sand
in the ocean waves
in the crystal moon

Let the dust
ripple over my name
Forget how it sounds
For what should be left
is a white noise

Forget the aisle
I am no longer waiting
Before I leave
I will make sure
I am gone from your mind

If you suddenly say
"still waiting for you"
with roses in hand

Running towards you
I will lift my arm
To never touch you
To never tell you,
"If you ever turn
I am here for you
I was always for you"

How To Make Your Boss Fall In Love: Set It Up (Netflix Movie Review)

Set It Up Cast


Set It Up is a fast paced romantic comedy on Netflix directed by Claire Scanlon focusing on life of stressed out New York assistants, Harper (Zoey Deutch) and Charlie (Glen Powell). Harper works for a stringent, highly demanding sportswriter, Kirsten Stevens (Lucy Liu). She is an aspiring writer but struggles to finish off a single article and submit to her fearsome boss as her day is spent running and following commands. Charlie works in the same building for Rick Otis (Taye Diggs) who is outrageous, throws tantrums, stomps laptop and amidst of getting divorce.

Set it Up balances the demonstration of high and low economic strata in the society. Charlie's request of getting a promotion is turned a deaf ear and Harper struggles over paying bills despite working for high-profiled Kristen.

Movie Plot


Harper and Charlie are overworked and  strive daily full-filling demands of their high-powered bosses.  Late one night the two characters meet-up in the building lobby where Harper collects food for Kristen; only to find out the restaurant accepts only cash. Charlie forgets to order for his boss and grabs the opportunity by paying the cash. Harper can't go without the food, so negotiates with Charlie to share the food. They both come to realize of having highly- demanding bosses  and plan to make them fall in love so that they gain some freedom and live their life in peace.

Will the workaholics fall in love? Do they end up marrying?

Harper and Charlie


Set It Up is a movie with quick-witted dialogues and  entertaining characters. Harper and Charlie have charismatic on-screen chemistry making you wish their type A personality bosses fall in love. You will smitten over the scenes of Harper and Charlie together with their sense of humour.

The two overworked characters try to squeeze out time for their respective love life. Harper goes on dates, thanks to Tinder. Charlie is committed to his girlfriend who fails to appreciate him. Can you imagine pizza as a romantic food? Watch out for the scene where Harper and Charlie share the pizza and what you see are the sparks of a lovely relationship.

The Bosses


While I have talked about the charming assistants, the abrasive characters of Kristen and Rich are worth watching. If you loved Meryl Streep in 'The Devil Wears Prada', you might like these two. Their condescending behaviour towards their assistants who practically handles their life will annoy you. Kristen barks orders to her staff and Rick is a braggart. Though the story is about making them fall in love, these  pompous characters share less  on-screen time.

Small Yet Remarkable


The small characters enriches the movie: the waiter of the cafe, maintenance person of the office building. I particularly liked Harper and Charlie's friends in the movie. Watching them confirms, 'That's why friends are for!' Keep an eye for Becca's engagement  speech (Harper's friend).


Set It Up Dialogues (Witty, Sarcastic)


Harper: When my mom was my age, she had me. I've never even had a boyfriend.
Charlie: But you're like, a grown up.
Harper: Take that back.

Harper: "One is a beautiful woman with dark hair and a fierceness that's both scary and inspiring. The other is a guy."

Why should you watch the Netflix movie Set It Up?


  • If romantic comedies are your guilty pleasures (like mine)
  • If you are feeling low and are looking out for a feel-good movie
  • To fall in love with Zoey Deutch. She steals the show or I should say the movie!

Why you can skip watching the movie?


  • The movie is predictable, clichéd
  • You are 'this will happen next'  and 'I told you so!' type of person, stay away from it

Final verdict:


Set It Up is a perfect combination of a romantic comedy with its hilarious wit, laughing, crying, heartbreak and finding love at the end. We can never stop believing that, can we?
