Playing Dumb... (Charades)

So this last friday was a dumb charades night at my house … needless to say we enjoyed indian food, some ingenious mime for not only the difficult but also the simple movie titles….and  many expected and unexpected laughs!!

The star among all those hilarious moments was when one of the guys got a 2 word movie name to enact.…. and to signify that hes enacting the 2nd word first he decided to not to show two fingers but only the middle finger with the palm facing his face.After a split second of awkward silence at this action of his, all of us burst in uncontrollable laughter... and the laughter continued some more for he remained clueless till the end of it all :P

he he, and what was the movie he was trying to explain? "Dost - Ana"?

Dumb shots is such a time pass even though we're all grown up :)

Rakesh - Dont remember the name of the movie.. i guess the funny quotient of the act overshadowed everything else :P

Yeah... i absolutely love the game. Seriously what other options do we have for indoor games... apart from playing cards (and frankly, I am not too big on cards). Dumb Charades always ensures a lot of fun, innovative ways of enacting simple words, participation from everyone and lots and lots of laughter.

I Walk Alone!!! said...

Ah!!! Simply love that game... Hope you have many more of such laughing Dumb Charade games in times to come...

Rakesh said...

btw, here are a few sure shot movies to make your team win - nobody ever explained these while we were playing - Yahudi, Sati Annsuiya, Saraswatichandra, Howrah Bridge (Only Bengalis get this one)... there are many more unfortunately can't remember right now.

playing dumb comes quite naturally, charades is a different story!

Paradox Philic said...

I Walk Alone - I hope so too :)

Paradox Philic said...

Rakesh - Thanks for the names... seems like they would make for some interesting acts :P

BTW,Howrah bridge reminds me that "Howrah bridge pe naachtee churail" was one of the titles that someone successfully mimed.... then again there were bengalis in the group :D
