Powerful dialogue from The Amazing Spiderman 2

I haven’t watched the movie but someone sent me a mail on what he took away from the movie. And believe me I was floored too. Very very profound. According to the mail I received, one of the characters after graduation made this speech: “I know that we all think we’re immortal, we’re supposed to feelContinue reading “Powerful dialogue from The Amazing Spiderman 2”

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag – An Inspiring Movie

Yesterday watched Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, film based on Milkha Singh also known as the “Flying Sikh”. He bought India to the forefront of the games by winning gold medals in running including setting a new world record.

Worth watching ….. Kai po che….

Yesterday watched Kai Po che on TV ….. a movie that I had missed when it was released. Heard a lot of things about it, mostly good and sometimes bad but I watched it with an open mind yesterday. I must admit, I liked the movie. Very well made and best part of it wasContinue reading “Worth watching ….. Kai po che….”

Mr. India – A cult favourite

As I write this post, Mr. India plays on Zee Cinema. What a classic movie it was in its times. I have never been a Sridevi fan save and except for something like a Sadma which was an out-and-out Kamal Hassan movie but I’ll give the devil his (her) due. In the recent times, her EnglishContinue reading “Mr. India – A cult favourite”

Shagird – An unheard of movie but worth a watch

Finished watching Shagird this morning. (Comes often on Zee Cinema HD for those wanting to see it and I had recorded it from there). A good movie. Honestly very off beat and unheard of but I liked the plot and the way in which the whole story was presented. Nana Patekar is awesome and theContinue reading “Shagird – An unheard of movie but worth a watch”

Thattathin Marayathu – A Malayalam movie

The fringe benefits of traveling by Rajdhani Express to Delhi is that you get to relax completely and that is the prime reason I travel by Rajdhani instead of those flights. This time I had decided that I would not work on my emails / laptop but would either sleep or watch movies. As partContinue reading “Thattathin Marayathu – A Malayalam movie”

Dabangg 2 – An apology to it’s prequel

I am no expert but just another armchair critic (yes and I must admit, I can snore through movies however interesting they may be). Christmas Day 2012 went for Dabangg 2 in the evening. No earth shaking songs a la it’s prequel but the radio airplay kept them alive. Also the raunchy nature of theContinue reading “Dabangg 2 – An apology to it’s prequel”

Oh My God and English Vinglish

Watched two movies this past week and both were worth the time spent. The first one was Oh My God starring the brilliant Paresh Rawal. One amazing actor no doubt and the storyline was simply superb. I identified a lot with the questions put forth on the blind faith we impose and the worshipping thatContinue reading “Oh My God and English Vinglish”

Barfi! A visual delight

Watched Barfi! last night. I just loved the movie. Every movie has it’s pros and cons so let me start with what I did not like: The whodunit plot which was completely unnecessary. The length of the film especially the second half. The frequent flash backs / whatever. Found them confusing. Now the list ofContinue reading “Barfi! A visual delight”
