Zindagi na milegi dobara

I loved this movie. It was compared to Dil Chahta Hai. I did not see the connection.

However, the recurring theme of getting over fears, the recurring theme of friends helping friends to overcome these fears, was very appealing to my (still) youthful spirit. A friend on facebook posted (out of context) “Wasn’t it beautiful when you believed in everything.” This movie reminded me of that.

The script was just too great. Hrithik Roshan is so damn cool…but we all knew that. His screen presence is just too much. Okay, Farhan Akhtar was really good and his character had a lot of scope but with Hrithik in the scene, there was no way you could focus on Farhan Akhtar OR Abhay Deol OR even Naseerudin Shah.
I do not much like  Katrina Kaif. In looks or in acting. This movie did nothing to change that opinion. 

Abhay deol, I thought was talentless from the first movie I watched but I have to admit, he acts now. 

Farhan Akthar is a favourite now. He has good comedy timing… and well, in this movie, “Bagwati” and “Chudail Alert!” just defined the humor. I thought he handled the emotional scenes without exaggeration.
Whoever designed the guys’ clothes just rocked. The location (SPAIN?) is refreshing and breathtaking. It even reminds me of a pollution free location in India. I have tried none of their sports. But they were quite the daring.

Movies with a strong friendship angle always make me super happy. This one has a pact involved (promising and keeping a promise) too!
Just watch it.

Harry potter – The deathly Hallows 2

Movie || Wiki || IMDB 

I was super excited about watching the movie and having read the story was happy that this one was very close to the original story. As usual and expected, it was a well made movie. No crazy effects , no going away from the story and covering the highlights.
Somehow though, I was not as satisfied with the result. It was sort of “as expected”. Nothing spectacular. So I am just going to keep this short and say that it was still a very good movie. You do want to know how it all ended right?

I am all inspired to do a marathon of the books and the movies. I am set for the rest of the year.
The part with Dumbledore appearing in that White background was very well done. That scene, I thought was very much like, if anything better than the book. (or my imagination when I read the book).

Check it out.

Delhi Belly


Its a hilarious movie and I am so glad I made an effort to go watch it. Refreshing and just plain funny.

Its the story of 3 guys.... oh wait, the story etc etc are already covered on wiki and IMDB and the innumerous sites that review movies. So I am going to go ahead with my analysis.

In the beginning, I did not recognize Shenaz. She looks damn cute. Only after the movie, I researched and found the names of the actors and Poorna Jagannathan , she was very good! I am quite surprised that she is a regular on American TV and pleasantly so.
I always thought Imran khan was looks with no talent. But he proved me wrong this time. He has 1 talent - He can kiss. Okay, not to be too hard on him, I thought he was quite good in this one. And his black eye was a natural. This Kunal Roy Kapur is too much I say. And Vir Das, he is cool. The best is when he shaves his head in honor of his lost love. Dramatic?

It was so well scripted. The music was also PRETTY decent by Ram Sampath - Apparently he is Khakee guy.... D K Bose......

Its an Aamir Khan production. I should not have doubted the outcome.

I almost forgot to mention Vijay raaz. P K  Dubey !

I loved all the swearing and I might swear some more than I usually do :) Just as a token of appreciation for the movie.
