The Godyears Movie Quiz 2012

by - December 24, 2012



I hope all of you had a fun weekend.
For those newcomers who want a quick review of what's going on, this is a Movie Trivia based contest running through Christmas week at Godyears.
For more details on the rules and prizes, please refer to the earlier post




For others, get your thinking caps on. This is where you finally prove that watching movies when you were supposed to be studying was not a waste of time ! Bluetooth, chits, phone-a-friend, Google, prayers, buying me a yellow Ferrari as a bribe are all allowed too, in case you're wondering.

This quiz consists of 3 rounds of increasing difficulty. 
Fair warning : Read the questions carefully - there maybe a hint/twist hidden in them.
 Shall we begin ?


ROUND ONE : STARTERS 
( 1 point each )



1. Kabir Bedi starred in which James Bond movie ?

2. The critically acclaimed movie, The Shawshank Redemption, is based on the novella of which famous author ?

3. Who was the British Prime Minister in the movie Love Actually ?

4. Rajesh Khanna serenaded Sharmila Tagore with the iconic 'Mere Sapnon Ki Rani' in which Bollywood movie ?

5. Which Academy Award winning actor provided the voice for the genie in the movie Aladdin ?





ROUND TWO : BUFFET TABLE 
( 1 point each )



Ah yes. Starters and soups are fine but this is where the true winners will emerge. Hidden in the table below are a whole bunch of movies - from both Bollywood and Hollywood. I'm not going to burden you with silly details like how many are there... find as many as you can.
I will say this - they are hidden in every conceivable direction : vertical, horizontal, diagonal, right to left, left to right, top to bottom, bottom to top.  


Click the picture to get the full screen version for better viewing.


6. Find the movies hidden in the maze.

In your replies, you don't have to tell me where the movies are... just write down the list of the movies you found.



 ROUND THREE : DESSERTS
( 2 points each )




7. What is the link between the following Salman Khan films : - Maine Pyaar KiyaHum Aapke Hain Koun!Hum Saath Saath Hain, No EntryBiwi No. 1 and Ready.

8. In his first appearance in a Batman movie, the DC Comicbook character Bane played a sidekick to which female villain ?


9. The strong lineup of Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie, Gary Oldman, Dustin Hoffman and Jean Claude Van Damme have all starred together in which Hollywood movie ?

10. Who has acted in all three hit Bollywood movies : Mr India, Shahenshah and Chaalbaaz ?

11. What is Raveena Tandons' character's real name in the cult classic Andaz Apna Apna ?



12 : Identify the song.


13 : Identify the movie.



14. Identify the movie.


15. Identify the song.




The final desserts will be especially sweet for the three winners, of course. 
As mentioned earlier, the prizes are :

  • II  : e-gift voucher worth Rs 400/- for any item in Flipkart.

  • You can only send in one entry so take your time and answer. You've got a whole week. 
  • It is not compulsary that you must answer all questions. If you feel you've done good enough to win, that's fine. No negative marks for wrong answers.
  • As our teachers always used to say, check that you've put the correct answer number.
  • Do not give your answers in the comments section or else someone else may just copy them ad verbatim. Send them directly to me at pythoroshan(at)gmail.com 
  • Instead, use the comments section to inform me that you've sent your reply to my mail... and of course, any possible bribes you may want to offer me ! I will acknowledge receipt of your answers at the comments section.

    1. Received.. and I have to ask because it's important : Whats the in-flight movie ? And what about food catering on the spaceship.. is it from the same people who serve (ugh) Air India ?

      Delete
    2. Well,if funds are sufficient ,you'll have the option of surfing through 100 DTS (direct to ship) channels and movies on demand.. I'm considering offering the catering contract to the Zulu tribesmen..They assure me their food will taste better than what Air India offers at present!

      Delete
    3. Zulu tribes !! In that case, not just the food but even the airhostesses will be better !! Yeeeah !

    1. Haha.. sorry sir.
      Part of the goal of that maze is the uncertainty. If I reveal the number, everyone will aim for that number.. till now none have got all. Just take your time, take a break and look at the maze after a few hours.. you will find new names popping out !
      Merry Christmas to you and all at home as well, sir.
