ok so some scattered thoughts about the movie..very random
Movie: I loved mahi’s and radhika’s stories but gayatri’s wasnt that convincing/substantial. I think the film flew uptil the point where he lands in australia, there it got a little ho-hum but only for a while. After the intermission (which never happened for us ) it picked up again. Kunal was fantastic in his scenes, tera goda ya moda agar mahi ke paas dikha and then him in a patka scene was really cute
and then RK going ek aur chaped padi I am a sucker for romantic movies and I think raj-mahi-jogi could have been made into a full-fledged movie..sort of like Kabhi Kabhie Even the radhika track was really nice, the scene where he leaves her while she waits at the court could was emotional though RK could have been a little meaner there ( girl’s POV ) everyone went hawwww at that point haha. Gayatri track offered nothing really..I mean it was required to make him realize his mistake and also get a girl in the end but other than that you dont really care for it. How was he away for one year? we went like huh when he got those letters. All the songs were good but my favs are aahista aahista for its zest and small town girl for the fun element haha
RK: Jai ho RK baba ki The man is an eye-ball-magnet, you just cant take your eyes off him! Like even when someone else is talking, you want to stare at him haha or maybe thats just me :looney: His transitions between different ages were very convincing, he totally looked and acted the part. Like in his introduction scene in the train he was really cute, (not so much in the scene where he reads the poem ), then the neighbor scene with bipasha hahaha…main gym bhi jaata hoon, achche ghar ka hoon hahaha..we were in splits Loved his scenes with mahi in amritsar But when Kunal hits him, he gets a black eye right..and then suddenly in the bar, his mouth is twisted too and then all of a sudden its alright He was really really good in emotional scenes, fantastico!!!!!! Did the film have any real lovey-dovey scenes. His comic timing is really good too. I think he could have been a little meaner, maybe that was not in the character sketch..coz even if he was supposed to be, his smile would turn a thousand frowns into a smile haha …oh and he looked good everywhere!! ok except when he goes to Hiten to tell him that he’s getting married and someone put some red makeup on him or something..was it supposed to be night makeup for the park? other than that there wasnt one place where he wasnt picture perfect. oh I just remembered, in khuda jaane when he sings that 3rd para or so..he was really good..like a true blue romantic hero. so all in all, RK is brillaint in ALMOST all the scenes, sometimes his –> got repetitive but other than that
Minissha: He acted good but her look was off in the first half I think..her nose was always red were they trying to be too realistic hahah but she was fun and she acted well in the second half too.
Bipasha: ok she totally acted the part and her transition from radhika to shreya was very convincing!! She looked stunning and u actually feel for her when she’s left at the altar (even though its just candy floss). The second half where she makes RK dance to her tunes was good until the scene where she decides to forgive her..at the airport..she just comes and starts off that emotion-heavy dialogue..it starts off weird but by the end I think it got ok..but I felt it was too abrupt.
Deepika: She looked nice, dressed pretty and said her lines alright. But didnt have much to do in it. In the scene where he proposes, u dont really get why she dicthes him, I mean u get what she’s saying but other than that you dont really get it, ok I m confusing myself too now (ok maybe some emotions were required and not just red eyes , maybe I m just plain biased). Her fighting scene in the end was good, though when she got out, her eyebrows reminded me of SRK’s they are wavy like that hahah..she was good in whatever part she got I guess.
Hiten: ok he was really good too..mooche ho to nathulal jaisi and bache. But his ear stud and shirts were really gross in the second half..were they trying to be hip paindoos in austraaaaalia ..huh mate?
Kunal: superb as the sardar..I love how he was hadkaaoing RK hahaha and RK was getting scared, loved their chemistry the best in the whole film hahaha
ok so I’ll add if I remember anything..the movie is good, its better than a lot of others I have seen over the last few years, could have been better (how? I dunno, probably the third story or something else) Totally a RK fest and he delivers! ok in the last scene rk says a dialogue on why he likes her..that they are both flawed and all..I was like ..is that why u like pp (like for real) hahah ..the movie stand on its comic scenes and then the redemption stories in the second half You only feel for RK’s character and it doesnt let you get involved with anyone else. It brezes through, so light-hearted comedy with a bit of romance/drama…so total masala dude!!
[b]EDIT 1: [/b]
ok so gayatri’s character was so hard-working and focussed..dunno how she managed three tasks (superwoman perhaps) but she so readily went to a vacation in the middle of the semester? and why do you want to drive a cab all your life?
the scene where he’s playing the game on X-Box and applauses everyone was forced just to show him as the Microsoft guy haha..very tiny but still and the sydney harbor scene ..the dance one..
