Love or Hate?

I am not a very big fan of Ram Gopal Varma. I can rarely stand his movies. But after one of my friends suggested, I went through his blog and I must say, he is one crazy person. I like the way he lives his life. I can nowhere relate myself with him, or follow what he believes in, but he is someone who is different from the rest. And that has really made me resolve to watch Rakhta Charitra this time.
The conviction became stronger when I read this piece of news in TOI.


Revv up for some directorial fury in the near future. Ram Gopal Varma vs. Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
RGV, whose slanging matches with Karan Johar have fed the mediavine and spiced up tabloid copy, has now shifted target and stepped on the celeb toes of Bhansali.
Reportedly, SLB didn't take too kindly to RGV smirking to Press types about how he found the promos of 'Guzaarish' to be tepid and uninspiring. And how, he disapproved of scenes which show an Aishwarya Rai Bachchan brushing Hrithik's teeth and washing his hair.
RGV's trenchant take was that Bhansali, known for generating opulence and grandeur in his flicks… had gone off tangent treating the subject of a magician turned paraplegic.
A furious Bhansali retaliated ticking off RGV and telling him to mind his own business.
Well, matters have escalated to ugly heights. In a bid to cut into the collections of 'Guzaarish' and upset Bhansali. RGV is pitching the release of 'Rakht Charitra 2' on the same date!

Declares Varma in a tabloid quote, "'Guzaarish' is about love and 'Rakht Charitra' is about hate. May the purest emotion win."

RGV's last comment "May the purest emotion win" literally gave me goosebumps and I was actually thinking about the veracity of the emotion of Love.
For a moment I thought, Hate ought to be the purest, where ideally it should be Love.

I am still wondering what should be the purest and which actually is one?

Junta, what's your take?
