One hell-oween night

IT WAS a night when the `dead' got up from coffins!

The Halloween party was kicked off in spooky style on Friday night with the dead getting up from the coffin. Was it scary? Nope. It was masti at its bloodthirsty best. And the Halloweeners grooved till night gave way to dawn.

There were vampires, ghouls, spooks, zombies, phantoms et al. One hell of a chilling fare as Hyderabadis chilled out on Hallowen night. It was dark. But the young adults screamed, gyrated and partied hard.

As party-boppers made way into Ten Downing Street, the popular pub celebrating its second anniversary, a dead guy got up from a coffin and grabbed a beer mug scaring the wits out of the revellers. Beer from the blue? But it was funny as the crowd craved for more. The `dead man' accepted nuggets of chicken and paneer! A hungry soul indeed! "The idea was to infuse some wacky moments into the Halloween night," smiled Shivram Vishnubhotla of CNC, the event manager for the pub.

One hell-oween night

Wearing amusing masks and weird costumes, people had a ball as Suchet from Delhi had the crowd in a trance with his playful `Didgeridoo,' an Aussie aboriginal instrument. Sitting on `Darbouka, a desi version of `dappu,' Suchet made some soul-stirring sounds that went with the wacky mood of the evening.

Low-slung jeans, wraparound shades and pierced eyebrows and psychedelia. There was more. Arjun dressed like a phantom stole the show at Kebabs & Beer. At K&B lounge bar, bartenders and waiters dressed in bizarre costumes served hot drinks as the crowd in crazy masks and `sinful' attire grooved while students of NIFT had a whale of a time. Some Telugu tinsel town actors trooped in to enjoy the `evil' fare, says Madhukar, director, K&B.

If Bottles & Chimney threw a creepy fare, Under Deck's was no pushover. The mood was eerie and the dudes and the damsels made it a sinister evening. Sheena, PR executive, slipped into a vampire garb and ran around the arena turning a few heads here and there.

Forefront, a band from Goa, was to the fore at Secunderabad Club where a Halloween Ball was organised. What more. 10 D had prizes for the scary attire.

Wish you were dead!
