I saw ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ recently. Before you ask what was I thinking, lemme tell you, I try to watch Madhavan movies. There, I said it. 😀

My random-points review of the movie follows:

. Such a waste of such a potentially bright story. Such a waste. They even had Madhavan. If only they had replaced Kangana ‘must-act-mad-always’ Runout. Or even tamed her a lil bit.

. Madhavan’s character is so spineless. I know that’s the intention, so that in the end he can mouth a 2-bit dialogue about ‘backseat pe baithne ka time chala gaya hai’. Still, a half-bit of bone wouldn’t have hurt him.

. The scene in which he mouths the following dialogue to Kangana made me want to slap him. I’m surprised she didn’t do that, shown as she is to be a spitfire. “Sabne jo kaha, woh kiya. Engineering, doctori…blah blah…pacemaker.. blah blah.. email. facebook.” and then breaks down and starts sobbing. Really? Email? Facebook? People told him to do that? And he obeyed? Just for the heck of it? *Eyes wide as saucers*

. The story completely loses it after the intermission. Jimmy Shergill is Kangana’s beau. How? Didn’t he already have a fiancee? Madhavan makes so many back and forth trips, vacillating between ‘to be or not to be’ that he must have a special frequent-travller ticket for that journey.

. Don’t you just dislike those movies which bankrupt themselves of all their interesting, or awwww moments during the trailers itself? Watch the trailers and the movie is watched.

. How does such a sharif, cultured family get a daughter like ms. runout? Where does she get her regular doses of Vodka et all, and manage a string of boyfriends under all that strict supervision?

. Such a waste….. 😦


On another note, wanted to mention a movie (P.S. I love you) I haven’t seen completely yet, only snippets here and there a couple of times.
Saw some part (until then unseen) of it some days back, where Gerard Butler (Sigh…..) tells his wife (forgot her name… 😀 ) how he fell in love with her when he first met her. That scene just made me go all Awwwwwwwwwwwwww.

So what’s your favourite ‘awwwww” scene from the movies? And what’s your ‘could have been so better than this’ movie?

How to train your dragon..

.. may be old news for you. But if you haven’t watched it already, go see it now. In Imax 3D.

The story is good, with only the occasional sprinkling of cliches and scenes which make you go ‘Come on’, while the setting of a centuries old viking village is well-depicted. You may get hints of Avatar’s Pandora, and ‘Toothless’ may sometimes remind you more of a pet cat or dog and the Big -Mama of all dragons may resemble T-Rex with tiny wings. The animation though, stands out beyond anything I have seen recently.

If I haven’t said it enough times already, go watch this movie.

His master’s voice

Mohit Chauhan‘s voice rocks. His crooning and laugh at the end of masakalli are THE ultimate. Check out his latest:

  • tum se hi
  • kuch khaas hai
  • masakalli
  • tune jo na kaha
  • yeh dooriyan
  • pehli baar mohabbat ki hai
  • It isn’t enough that I have nothing to post about. I now have to go and sound like a giddy teenager in the throes of her first major crush. *sigh*

    Movie review of the week

    Kung fu Panda – An awesome movie.. you can’t believe the awesomeness of it. The Panda is just too cute. A must-watch, especially for the animation-fans out there.

    Sarkar Raj – Ummm.. it’s, well, okay. AB is killing his baby’s career though. This movie is definitely much better than Tashan (which, being the last hindi movie I watched, is the current standard for comparison), though that’s not saying a lot.

    P.S. Waiting for WALL-E to hit the screens now…..

    Om Shanti Om

    filmy. Very filmi.

    P.S. Over the top, melodramatic, heavily inspired copied, actors hamming away to glory, laughathon.

    P.P.S. I’m lovin’ it.

    P.P.P.S. Drool. Drool. For guys and gals alike.

    P.P.P.P.S. Poda. Poda. Mind it!

    P.P.P.P.P.S. You can’t help loving a movie which laughs at itself.

    P.P.P.P.P.P.S. Have i said enough?
