‘Sholay’ in post ‘Satyam’ era

Friends on August 15, 2011 ‘Sholay’ will complete 36 years since its release. In commercial cinema ‘Sholay’ is an iconic movie and considered one of the milestones of cinema. Three years ago when Satyam Computers went bust a joke became viral on the net which was inspired from the movie ‘Sholay’. There is a famous scene where Jai ( Amitabh Bachchan) tries to convince an elderly aunt (Called Mausi) to allow her niece Basanti (Hema Malini) to marry Veeru ( Dharmendra). In post Satyam era this scene was imagined in a different manner…
Jai: Mausi, ladka Satyam mein kaam karta hai.
Mausi: Hai Ram! Aur kahin try kar raha hain kya?
Jai: Kahan Mausi, do saal Satyam me rahne ke baad koi company leti kahan hain.
Mausi: Hai Raam! To kya do saal se Satyam mein hi hain?
Jai: Haan socha tha do saal me salary hike hogi hi. Aajkal  to salary bhi jyada nahin mil rahi hain use.
Mausi: To kya salary bhi kam milti hain?
Jai: Ab appraisal bhi to asaani se kahaan hota hai Mausi.
Mausi: To kya appraisal bhi nahi hota uska?
Jai: Senior se ladhai karne ke baad appraisal mein achhi rating to nahin milti hai na Mausi.
Mausi: To kya seniors se ladhta bhi hain?
Jai: Ab do saal tak onsite jaane ko na mile to ho jaati hai kabhi kabhi anban.
Mausi: To kya ab tak ek baar bhi onsite nahi gaya?
Jai: Ab outdated technology ke developer ki kismat mein to yehi likha hai Mausi.
Mausi: Kya kaha, ladka outdated technology mein kaam karata hai?
Mausi: Kaunse college se padhai ki hai?
Jai: Uska pata lagte hi hum aapko khabar de denge!
Jai: To main rishta pakka samjhuna mausi?
Mausi: Beta, kan khol kar sun lo, sagi Mausi hoon Basanti ki, koi sauteli maa nahi. Bhale hi hamaari Basanti call centre wale lukke ladke Chandu se shaadi kar le, par Satyam ke employee se katai nahin karegi!
