Movie Review - The Social Network

1:01 AM

Those of you who follow me on Twitter must have heard of my recent purchase of a Panini Griddle and man! have I been going crazy with it! It has been Carbs-Galore in our household. But by far the best purchase of the year!


Some of my twists with Panini! Feast your eyes ;)


And this is how I had dressed for a Saturday afternoon with my husband! 
Dress - Gift from a friend [Megha 10']; Belt & Hair Band - Target [08' - 10']
Wrist band - Self made [10']; Rings - Charlotte Russe [10']
Shoes - From Tehran [07']

We went and saw the Matinee show of the movie - The Social Network last afternoon. It is the story of Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg), the creator of Facebook. He is shown to be shrewd, aggressive and ambitious. The movie rotates around his achievements, growth, fame and consequential lawsuits, mostly due to his personality! 
And the biggest irony is that he goes on to create a social network while his own social skills were quite skim!


Eduardo Saverin (played by Andrew Garfield) is his best friend and the co-founder of Facebook,  Cameron & Tyler Winklevoss (both played by Armie Hammer) are his seniors who sue him on the grounds of Intellectual Property been stolen from them. Lastly, Sean Parker (played by Justin Timberlake) is the catalyst who eventually helps the company expand and rock Mark's relations with Eduardo. For me the casting of the movie was done to perfection. 

David Fincher's direction is top-notch and is provided with a razor sharp script by Aaron Sorkin. It doesn't take a genius, to give the movie a benefit of doubt, that probably the incidents have been dramatized a little for our benefit. All said and done this 'version' of Mark Zuckerberg's story makes for a great the cinematic experience. 

Bottom-line - Must Watch!


P.S. We also saw Let Me In which is supposed to me a horror/thriller which was a total disappointment and not worth more than these 2 lines or any more of my time!

  12. Love the pink handbag and the dress is simplicity at its best. Very well coordinates and super eye-catching.

    Read the book and it was quite interesting and sad in a way they way it ends. One of those reminders: think twice before you start a business with friends.

    But anywayss...those panini's are to die for TANVI!

  20. I'm so looking forward to seeing "The Social Network"; it sounds really interesting. And I'm bummed to hear that "Let Me In" wasn't so great. It's a remake of a foreign film I really loved called "Let the Right One In." I wouldn't classify the original as a horror/thriller, though, so maybe that's part of the problem.

  21. Great movie review. And those paninis are simply mouthwatering. Love your dress as well. xo style, she wrote

  22. Ok, first off, I would be fat as a house if I had a panini press. I love most kinds of panini. I feel like I'd be in modified grilled cheese overload if I had one. Omg I'm drooling at the thought of it!

    Also, I am really looking forward to seeing the social network (hopefully this week). I've heard from everyone who's seen it that it is fantastic.

  30. If I had a panini griddle I would so gain at least 5 pounds! I love, love, love EVERYTHING that comes out of it - panini w cheese, w tomatoes, w olive oil and garlic... But it doesn't seem to have a negative effect on you, Tanvi. You are your usual stylish and beautiful self (and I do like the little tattoo at your ankle). xo

    On a side note, I am not a big fan of carbs..but Panini looks too good.

  39. Hi! what a wonderful post Tanvi. I think you have sold me on getting a panini maker. Those sandwiches look so good and seriously I am in bed catching up on the computer and I feel this urge to go down ( 2 flights!) to my kitchen to eat something. And what a cute dress. I LOVE it. Oh and thanks for the movie review. Looks like it's a must see! Wow-you packed a lot into one post.
