Can't believe it’s been 11 months since my last blog, no wonder both the people who read my blog noticed it.
I must confess I haven't seen many movies in this period anyway, of the few I remember are 'Om Shanti Om' well was a bit difficult to resist the Shahrukh mania at that time (Gosh! what am I saying I am a AamirKhanite) and would you believe I had seen Madhumati (yes the one with my childhood crush Vyjayanthimala Mala in it) just a week before! Om shanti Om is nothing but original Karz and Madhumati squashed together. But nevertheless still a good entertaining movie, Deepika looked good and Shahrukh with his 6 pack looked ugly and Shreyas acted well.
I did see ‘Dhamaal’ which I thought was really funny with Arshad Warsi, Sanjay Dutt, Reethesh Deshmukh and Asrani. Of course you have to discount the usual bollywood masala to enjoy this movie but do give it a go.
‘Taare Zameen Par’ we all acclaim was the best of the lot in recent times, two reasons one its directed by Aamir khan and second it starred Aamir Khan in it.
The other movies I watched was ‘Mere baap pehle aap’ because it had Genelia D’Souza, ‘Singh is King’ because everybody was watching it, then I realised why, it had Katrina Kaif in it, it makes you wish ‘Katrina is Queen’ would have been more apt.
Probably one of the best movie I watched recently was ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’ if you still haven’t seen it just go see it. It will remind you of your good old college days, good fun filled entertainer no wonder it’s from the Aamir Khan Production house.
More recently I watched ‘GolMaal Returns’ and wished it hadn’t.
‘Rab ne bana de Jodi’ with Anushka Sharma and SRK which I thought was decent but kept forgetting whether Surinder Sawhni was pretending to be Raj or Raj was pretending to be Surinder….”Punjab Power…lightning up your life ji” well sometimes you can forgive Shahrukh but I believe it was Anuska who was lightning up the house.
And even more recently I watched ‘Welcome to Sajjanpur” directed by Shyam Benegal and stars Shreyas Talpade and Amrita Rao. Funny in parts but stretched a bit too far.
Hopefully my next round up would be soon….till then thanks for being here!
