The code - cracked

Note: This is my 555th post. Panch sau pachpan washing powder panch sau pachpan! :D

So I have cracked my code, I mean 'cold' and can say my m's and n's. Yeay!

Now it's time to see which of you guys cracked my code on the last post! Everyone did well, but it was kinda expected, cos knowing Viv and me, you'd know that this would be very heavily cricket/Bollywood focussed. :D

1.



















Of course this is Dhoni! Most of you got it, but Himesh Reshammiya was a close contender. I guess it could be Himesh, but he has more facial hair, yeah? Other contenders were Jack sparrow and Yasser Arafat!

2.





















Again an easy-peasy one. There is only one famous muchhwala chef - Sanjeev Kapoor! Again, most of you got it, but special shoutout to Shub who thinks I am soooo SRK-crazy that I drew SRK in the movie Duplicate here. Haha! I don't think he had a moustache in Duplicate, did he? Army, yes, but Duplicate? :O Ursjina's guess was 'Sayesha's cook'! Damn I'm insulted! I dun need no cook-shook! :/ Ramkumar thought it was Viv! Hahaha!

3.





















Okay, this is the one drawing I am most ashamed of. Fortunately, some of you guessed it, and may I just say you guys ROCK for having guessed this is Oprah in spite of the very bad drawing. I didn't mean for the others to turn out as kids, I just wanted to show that on her show everyone cries. Viv took the longest to guess this one! Your guesses included Rakhi Sawant, Evita, Mamata Banerjee, Sayesha (SHEESH!), SRK (Shub, I'm gonna kill you for this one!), "some teacher", Kalam, Viv (SHEESH!), Hilary Clinton, Indian Idol, Madonna and Ms. Briganza aha (Duhita, bonus point for you for this one!)!

4.





















Yeah, Viv started with Beyonce too, but then I drew the big butt and he said Jennifer Lopez and then I drew the 'shake' lines near the butt and finally he guessed it was Shakira! Most of you also guessed one of the three. Sanchit and Bivas thought it's Mauli Dave (well done, guys!), while others came up with Annie (who's that?), Janet Jackson, Madonna, Britney, and Mariah Carey. Crazy Dhakkan gets bonus point for her guess "Saroj Khan trying her hand at singing".

5.














When Viv first drew this, I glared. "Dude, this is a cricketer. Do you know how many cricketers there are in the world?" Then he drew the goitre-like thing, and I immediately guessed it was Mandira Bedi. He wants a special shoutout to Kosh and VR who actually guessed this one correctly. Other contenders were Sachin, Dhoni, Ganguly, Symonds, Viv, Ponting, Malaika (why?), Sayesha (CHHEH!) and Deepika. My bonus point goes to Amey for asking, "Is that a bat or a knife?"

6.

















South Indian superstar - Rajnikanth! Most of you got it, but other contenders were Nelson Mandela (Sheesh, my India map looks like Africa?), Shah Rukh Khan, Dravid, Mani Ratnam, de-turbanated Manmohan Singh (shabash, Bivas!), Manoj Kumar, Big B, Himesh and Narendra Modi.


7.


















Okay confession - first I thought I'll draw the guy who copies Harsha Bhogle, then I remembered that I did not remember his name, or whether he even wore glasses. Sheesh. So I decided to draw Harsha. Apologies to his fans for giving him the wrong kind of frames. Again, most got it, but some also guessed Kumble, Udayan Mukherjee, Dravid and Sachin.

8.





















Okay, here come's Viv's famous body cast. Come to think of it, most of what he draws resembles this. However, since I have been thinking of OSO (haven't seen it yet!!! Oh the horror!), the moment he drew the two lines across the abs, I knew it was King Khan. Viv was a bit sad that I did not even let him complete the six-pack, but boy, was he delighted to see that many others also guessed it correctly. Bonus point to Raj for guessing 'Hangman' and to Crazy Dhakkan for guessing 'Gabbar with his arms re-growing'. Aequo Animo thought it was a scarecrow, whereas Sandew thought it was someone wearing an oversized T-shirt. Sowmya said, "LOL @ this. Hands look like mug handles." while Amey asked "A man?". Clueless thought it was an Ajanta/Ellora painting while Duhita christened him 'Plastic man' (I'm already singing in my head, "Plastic man, plastic man, friendly recyclable plastic man!"). Somya thought it was Rakhi Sawant because "anything that looks weird is Rakhi Sawant."

9.


















This was another simple one that almost everyone got. Those who didn't guessed Gopi Chand, Ritwik Bhattacharya (who's that?) Mahima, Hingis, Sania Mirza, Leander Paes and Federer. Come on people, surely that doesn't look like a tennis ball? I took great pains to draw that shuttlecock! :/


10.

















Again, if you're in the OSO frame of mind, this is a give-away. Most got it, but those who didn't guessed Sayesha (why oh why?), Ekta Kapoor, Deepa Mehta, Ahana Deol (she's a director already?), Barkha Dutt and Deepika.

11.





















When I drew the heavy kohl and lipstick, Viv still couldn't guess it. So I just kept drawing bottles and tubes of cosmetics till he arrived at Shehnaz Hussein. Some of you got it. Other guesses included Kareena Kapoor (actually yeah, in Asoka she did look like this!), Aishwarya, not Sayesha (gee, thanks! :/), SRK (*throws a durian at Shub*), Britney, Rekha, Paris Hilton and Mandira Bedi. Amey responded with a "Did Halloween come late? Who is THAT? :o"

12.





















Again, almost everyone got this. Those who didn't (and thought it was Siddhu, Sukhvir Singh, Ishmit, etc.) hmmmph! :/ Sanchit thought it could be Mika or Rabbi too, but Mika doesn't wear a turban and Rabbi doesn't wear this overcoat thingie. Ha! :D

Okay, it's time to announce the winners!!

1st prize goes to... Sandew with 9 correct answers! *a keg of pani puri ka pani to Sandew*

2nd prize is shared by... Sanchit, Kosh, Shekhar and Bivas with 8 correct answers! *a jug of pani puri ka pani to each*

3rd prize is shared by... Shashikant, Shub, Ursjina, Stone and Baawara Mann with 7 correct answers! *a glass of pani puri ka pani to each. Oh wait. Except Shub. Shub doesn't get anything. :/*

Thanks for playing, everyone! :)

You could have given me at least coconut water for this effort if not beer.

Nice to see fig.11 looked like Kareena kapoor for some others too!

But actually for No.6 the figure should have been drawn in the center of India...er...Japan...no entire Asia..wait...hmm...World map..no no..the milky...

;)

Sayesha said...

@designNinja,

I apologise. You are obviously the authority on asses here. :P

#Shub,
You... you... you!!!!! Mere SRK ka itna insult! HMMPH! :/

#Baawara Mann,
I retracted the beer! :P :P :P

//please please please (and gazzilions of pleases) come up with morwe such stuff!!

Hehe... okay every now and then I'll post the proceedings of our pictionary sessions, theek hai? We don't want to play just to blog about it, that's why. :)

#Bivas,
Vunderphul idea! I am SO retracting the beer! :D

Sayesha said...

#Hari,
Hehehe! :P

//You could have given me at least coconut water for this effort if not beer.

Hehehehe! Coconut water? You're asking Bhai for coconut water when she can get you a whole coconut tree? :D

//But actually for No.6 the figure should have been drawn in the center of India...er...Japan...no entire Asia..wait...hmm...World map..no no..the milky...

Ya allah!
*rolls eyes*

kashika said...

*hangs head in shame*
I solemnly swear I'll never ever play pictionary again in my life.
But at least I got the two I attempted right. But that's not even close to nay consolation.

aequo animo said...

I deserve a beer too, For the "not sayesha" bit :D

Stone said...

It was fun!! :-)

PizzaDude said...

Damn! I was not able to check blogs for two days and missed all the fun :((

mythalez said...

me too missed the contest :( ... hope ther r reruns repeats etc :D

Bit Hawk said...

That was total timepass! :))

Amey said...

So, I guess my score was 5... I am ashamed of myself now :(

I guess now I don't have any right to make fun of any other answers. But that has never stopped me. So, why should Mandela have a camera trained on him?

And I thought the shuttle thingie was a hand with fingers.

Sandew said...

Where do i collect :D
That was fun btw, just an innocent question:- which pics were drawn by viv?

Sanchit said...

o yes !!! yaaay yipeeee...

i'd like to thank my mom, my dad, my family, my f.r.i.e.n.d.s my kaam wali bai, mere padosi ka kutta, grocery store wala, sweeper, and all those who made this glorious achievement possible for me...

Thank you all...

LOL m LOL

Somya said...

Gawd...I really scored badly...but that Shahrukh wala was a stealer...just cldn't guess it(not that I cld guess rest of them correctly too) but still there I was completely clueless...but was fun no doubt...

Vaijayanta Chattoraj said...

Annie is a Pakistani singer who sang the song "Mahiya" ie. "Too Ne Aisi Ada Se Mujhe Dekha Dil ho Gaya Nisar Mahiya." You can get her video in YouTube, where she is dancing like Shakira.

Sandew said...

Sanchit said...

Kroopa Shah (Kr00pz) said...

Bivas said...

I loved that jingle as a kid :-)
Also the Nirma jingle and...oh there were sooo many!
//btw Harsha copier you mean Gautam Bhattacharya guy?
I presume u referring to Gautam Bhimani. he is the son of Harish Bhimani (Has done lot's of voiceovers including the voice of Samay in BR Chopra's 'Mahabharat'...remember 'Main Samay Hoon' in the first scene, when the serial started)

vvij said...

hi Sayesha,
Your blog is really too cool. I accidentally stumbled onto it and got totally hooked. Nice job. Read almost all posts in 2007 at a stretch. So will have one free drink from your bar.

Clueless said...

#Sandew,

Viv drew Mandira and SRK. Rest were drawn by me. He prefers guessing over drawing. :)

#Sanchit,
Wah kya acceptance speech hai! Sabki aankhen bhar gayi! :)

//hey sayesha, thanks for this pictionary post, it was high time i needed some fun in ma office

Your boss is gonna block blogspot! :D

//the 5th pic, later on i thought maybe its a candy in the hands of a girl... and so said baby aish... :)

I figured you'd explain. :)

#Shekhar,

SHEESH! This is a family bar! Put the shirt back on for goodness' sake! :O

#Sanchit,
It's up! :)

#Swati,
Thanks for the video. :)
Gotta admit though that I don't like her voice too much, she sounds like a bathroom singer! Jaise ghar mein baithkar antakshari khelte hain! Hehehe! :P

#Kroopz,
Hehehe... party's over babe! Next time time par aana! :P

#Bivas,
