  • “Holi kab hai. Kab hai HOLI!” by Bandish Soparkar ( Backward Holi Video )

    Well, i have to admit, it’s some time a movie/video/scene motivated me to write/post something, but there are moments in life which move you from your work and normal life, and make you notice something extraordinary! and yet funny that you realise yes indeed you are living! ( ya i know i exaggerate at times but being a fan masala movies doesnt help the matter, everything is larger than life ) But on this one seriously I am quite moved at simple innocent colourful fun the short offered me with it’s backward technique! If you thought those mind bending movies/short only can be serious like inception, etc wait till you have seen this I had one such small moment as i was about to crash

  • Worth Disappointment. ( Talaash )

    I watched Talaash after 3-4 weeks of it’s release yesterday, after knowing the entire suspense, it’s box office no.s and how its a failure according Alex or many other BO people ( for not cracking 100 cr figure ). I was told how it’s Emraan Hasmi Movie or Bhatt kinda flick, how it is disappointing as it deals with Ghost etc. And then the title credit’s started, as i relaxed in to my cousy lounge seating, and suddenly i saw my part of mumbai where i stayed for 5 years of my life, Churchgate, Fort, Kalaghoda, Colaba, etc. It was interesting to see the lift which i have used since many years, and did so again on my recent visit, to reach my office/residence.

  • Talaash: This is serious business

    Talaash: This is serious business December 3, 2012 Talaash demands big efforts from the cast and they deliver. PHOTO: PUBLICITY Talaash, as the name suggests, is a film in which people are looking for answers. It has some obvious searches like why did the car end up in water? Who is the killer? And then there are the subtly and beautifully embedded intrinsic quests of a father in search of reconciliation with himself, not really by self-flagellation but by being silent. Or a wife in search of her husband whom she lost to a tragic accident in their lives. I am disappointed in myself, because it took me over an hour to realise where I had seen Talaash before. I hadn’t seen it before, I

  • Top ALL TIME Openings: Talaash Tops For Aamir Khan

    note:I guess star power in today’s day is all about weekend opening a star can give. And imo below if taken at face value shows Aamir is clearly no. 1. 1) All other seven movies are mass movies. 2) All other movies are holiday release maybe with exception of Rowdy Rathore. 3) Difference between Rowdy and Talaash = 2.5-3 cr. 4) All other movies were heavily promoted. Enuf Said! Talaash is the 8th highest opening of all time. The film is Aamir Khan’s biggest opening, it may not be his biggest opening day but a day depends on holiday while three days even things out so is a better judge of opening numbers The top fifteen opening weekends in the history of Hindi film industry

  • 21-year-old girl arrested for Facebook post slamming Bal Thackeray

    Police on Sunday arrested a 21-year-old girl for questioning the total shutdown in the city for Bal Thackeray’s funeral on her Facebook account. Another girl who ‘liked’ the comment was also arrested. The duo were booked under Section 295 (a) of the IPC (for hurting religious sentiments ) and Section 64 (a) of the Information Technology Act, 2000. Though the girl withdrew her comment and apologized, a mob of some 2,000 Shiv Sena workers attacked and ransacked her uncle’s orthopaedic clinic at Palghar, north of Mumbai. The 21-year-old arrested for her Facebook post was among many who aired opinions on social networking sites.

  • Rangan on JTHJ

    Baradwaj Rangan, on JTHJ. At first, we think it’s empty hero-giri. Samar (Shah Rukh Khan), a classic loner, is not with the others of his bomb-defusing team, one of whom struggles to make sense of the tangle of wires in an explosive device at a Leh marketplace. Samar rides in on his motorbike alone, a little later, and when he gets to work, an onlooker remarks that he will not wear a bomb suit. After all, he hasn’t worn one while defusing close to 100 bombs thus far – a record, which fetches him the title The Man who Cannot Die. More remarks follow that build Samar up, in our eyes, as some sort of outrageous superhero. The onlooker says, “Iski aankhon mein aaj tak

  • A O Scott on CLOUD ATLAS

    A O Scott You see what I mean about quantity. Simply enumerating the rest of the cast members and saying what they do would turn this review into a Domesday Book of postmodern film acting. And identifying the flavors of ham they import to the proceedings would require an advanced degree in charcuterie. There is, in any case, a lot of acting here. It is delivered by the bushel, by the truckload, by the schooner, and the quality varies. http://movies.nytimes.com/2012/10/26/movies/cloud-atlas-from-lana-and-andy-wachowski-and-tom-tykwer.html?smid=tw-nytimesmovies&seid=auto&_r=1&pagewanted=2&

  • ROGER EBERT 4/4 STARS … Cloud Atlas

    Even as I was watching “Cloud Atlas” the first time, I knew I would need to see it again. Now that I’ve seen it the second time, I know I’d like to see it a third time — but I no longer believe repeated viewings will solve anything. To borrow Churchill’s description of Russia, “it is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.” It fascinates in the moment. It’s getting from one moment to the next that is tricky. Surely this is one of the most ambitious films ever made. The little world of film criticism has been alive with interpretations of it, which propose to explain something that lies outside explanation. Any explanation of a work of art must be found in

  • Resurrection of Akshay… Rooney Recommends OMG ( 5/5 stars )

    Akshay Kumar lost his reputation with housefulls, khatta meetha and what not. I predicted myself that this guy has the worst taste in script sense. I take back those words, and yes sir u are resurrected atleast in my eyes, for this wonderful heartwarming story. Paresh Rawal emerges as the lead hero of this movie (being in all frames nearly) (rare for bollywood) alongwith the director as they pack enough punch, and surprises and twist for which i expected to be simple and stale story. I was genuinely surprised by the second half of the movie, which led to the climax which has to be quite educational and intelligent and dramatic at the same time.

  • Finally, Shahrukh’s film with Katrina, Anushkha gets a title “yeh kahan aa gaye hum”

    New Delhi: So until now the stage was set, the actors had slipped into their characters’ skin and almost everything had fallen into right place except the movie’s title. We are talking about Yash Raj Films’ untitled movie which stars big shots of Hindi cinema like Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. While earlier it was believed that the movie was called ‘London Ishq’, a source from the YRF camp said that the film has been titled ‘Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum’. more on link: http://zeenews.india.com/entertainment/and-more/finally-shahrukhs-film-with-katrina-anushkha-gets-a-title_113541.htm

  • Abzee on Rowdy! (prefers it over wanted, Singham and Dabanng!)

    Saw Rowdy Rathore last night. A tad long at 140 minutes, but Prabhudheva keeps the narrative chugging along with nary a minute to stop and think. It is plotless yes, but it is also the first film of this new Southern-masala trend to actually be in on the secret behind the sudden ascension of this trend. So while Ghajini still remains the perfect reincarnation of masala, where there is a definite invested loss and a ‘corrosion’ of memory; the likes of Wanted, Dabanng and Singham were merely attempts at masala with nothing at stake. Perhaps Dabanng, had it been retained the way Abhinav Kashyap had written it with caste politics in mind and a ‘corrupted’ version of the masala hero who has to be ‘felled’,

  • Rooney Recommends this Donor! (3.5 / 5 stars)

    The movie origins from a good sperm (oops script), and that alone takes unknown actors and turn itself into a very strong film. To note, is that first half is a bit long, while second half lacks enough conflict, but the movie is light hearted in the core, and the conflict itself is one of human emotions, and the characters are played with nuances. Ayushman carries the movie on his on, but the movie really comes one in Anu Kapoor’s character, the new comer heroine really impresses, and special kudos to the actor who played his father, and the in laws of her too. The strings are masterly pulled by Shoojit Sarcar, who indeed impresses and thank god john abraham was away from screen time
