Crossposted from my blog.Happy new year to you all! 2010 is here, so I guess I need to get my act together otherwise I’ll still be publishing my 2009 lists in march 2010!! (Which is not as rare as it should be, because there is always some potentially good movie from previous year that I don’t get to see till well into the next year). Anyway… moving on to this list..
The extended Diwali weekend has proved to be a boon for last weekâ€™s Bollywood releases. Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltdâ€™s underwater thriller
Blue: Has had a fantastic first 4 days [Friday to Monday]. While the business dipped on Saturday [pooja], it was fabulous on Sunday and Monday. It’s one of the biggest openers of the year, despite the screens getting divided amongst three big films in the Diwali week
Cast â€“ Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Zayed Khan, Rahul Dev, Katrina Kaif
Director â€“ Anthony Dâ€™ Souza
â€˜Duniya Ka Sabse Bada Nasha â€“ Risk.â€™ This is a dialog in the film Blue, and if you take out how much of the producersâ€™ money was risked in the film, there is no other risk taken. With that kind of a theme, Blue could have easily been made into a great underwater adventure film with some risks (and of course some thought too). The people involved in the film were only interested in money whether it is earning it or spending it. After watching Blue, one can say that the dialog written above is wrong and Duniya ka sabse bada nasha isnâ€™t risk but paisa.
Anybody hearing the narration of this story would know instantly that the soul of the film is the TREASURE HUNT, and thus the film should focus on that portion more. But the problem with an underwater adventure is while you are under the sea you canâ€™t say anything. So the film has to be dialog-less for that period of the film. Thus it is a risk to make the hunt the focus of the film, if at all the audience loses interest in the hunt, the entire film loses out then and there. But how good is to sacrifice the soul of the film for not taking a risk!!!!! Anthony Dâ€™ Souza prefers not to take the risk and instead of concentrating on the hunt, he concentrated on the bare tattooed body of Akshay Kumar, stunts, bikinis, vulgar humor and Kylie Minogue!!!!!! BAD OPTION Mr. Dâ€™ Souza. You ruined the entire film just to avoid the risk and thereby killed the soul of the film. (more…)
Akshay Kumar, who plays the character of a rich and ambitious businessman Aarav, has given a superlative performance. His underwater daredevilry is just unmatched and makes him stands out amongst the macho bunch of bollywood biggies. He looks completely in control of the situation and never overacts.
Blue has recorded a fantastic opening all over be it multiplexes in metroes or small single screen in C centres. The first day business should come out better than the other two films combined.

When you go for a movie, you go with the hope to get entertained, thoroughly enjoy, come out with smiling faces and Happy New Year exactly does that. It’s thoroughly entertaining, witty and totally paisa vasool movie and you will come out with smiling faces. We all know what is the story of the movie, we all know there is no secret in the movie, we also know that this is mindless entertainment and we also know that it is somewhat inspired from couple of Hollywood movies but in spite of these “we know things”, I must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed the movie with my family. We all know how good the movie “Chak De India” is and how brilliantly Srk performed but oneRead more...
Haider Direction: Vishal Bhardwaj Actors: Shahid Kapoor, Tabu, Kay Kay Menon, Irrfan Khan, Shraddha Kapoor Rating: ***1/2 There is much in Haider that deserves a standing ovation. Let’s start with the courage of director Vishal Bhardwaj. Hamlet is one of Shakespeare’s most difficult and ambiguous texts. It’s also his longest— it takes over four hours to deliver. Hamlet in itself is a beast to be tamed. Vishal and his co-writer, the acclaimed Kashmiri journalist Basharat Peer, transplant the play to Kashmir. It plays out against a socio-political tragedy that has been wrought over six decades and that has a Rashomon-like quality to it — the heroes and villains switch places, depending on the narrator. The result is a film that is problematic and far tooRead more...
