Luck By Chance – Farhan gets lucky again

Posted by Pankaj on Jan 31, 2009 in Movie Reviews

Cast: Farhan Akthar, Konkana Sen Sharma, Rishi kapoor, Dimple kapadia, Juhi Chawala, Sanjay Kapoor, Isha Sharwani, Hrithik roshan, Saurabh shukala, a bunch of superstars as guest appearances.

First a big hand to Zoya akhtar for making a good debut directional movie. Right from the begining of the movie from where the credits star the mood of movie is set in perfect bollywood picture. You meet all people involved in making a movie successfull. Bollywood isn’t that beautiful behind the scenes. 

The movie is primarily about farhan and konkana pursuing their dreams of becoming stars of this industry. Movie has a good combination of humour attached with screenplay. It does show a the dark side of bollywood where you become selfish and use your friends & well wishers to climb up the ladder. In this movie you’ll see many familiar faces of bollywood making a guest apperances just to give the movie the perfect scene of making it feel a perfect bollywood. Even thou all have small roles they do it perfectly well to give the audience the taste of bollywood.

There are few emotional scenes like Rishi kapoor breaking down when Stars made by him turn down his phone calls, or the one where dimple kapadia confess to her daughther about her age 16 in bollywood. 

Its a simple story with a good screenplay and good star cast. Go watch this movie. Its not that great but still worth watching a different genre of bollywood movies. Would rate it 3 out of 5. So Farhan akthar get lucky again with another hit on his cards.

A lazy blogger …

Posted by Pankaj on Jan 18, 2009 in Movie Reviews

For last 45 days i have watched 7 movies for which i haven’t written the review. Reasons

  • Lazy .. hmmm ??!!!
  • Due to my engagment life !!??
  • Or just like that ..!!

What ever be the reason i thought to just list them out at least and brief up of each movie

1. “The day the earth stood still“- (Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly). A remake of a 1951 super hit movie of the same title. But sad that this could not create that magic again. Movie is about an alien Klaatu [Keanu Reeves] who comes to earth to destroy in order to save it. As humans are killing it by global-warming and nuclear stuffs. But then Klaatu realizes the love and affection between the humans. Movie not that great overall. Watch it if your not feeling sleepy. Would rate it 1 out of 5.

2. “Vaaranam Aayiram” – (Surya, Sameera Reddy, Simran, Ramya). Movie is a beautiful love story with pleasant songs and music. Surya has done a very good job in his acting and worked really hard on his body to the various ages of the character right from 16yr school boy to 66 yr aged old man. There are overall 3 love stories in it. Surya- Simran, Surya-Sameera and Surya-Ramya. Surya plays a double act as a father and son. Son Surya falls in love with Sameera and goes on to pursue his love but then Sameera dies in a accident. Surya goes through a bad times and falls prey to cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. The he finds a new goal in life goes on to become an army man and then accepts the love of his childhood friend ramya. Watch it with your girl friend, lover or wife. They’ll love it. Would rate 3 out of 5. Don’t miss out the songs and music anyways.

3. “Rab ne bana di jodi” – (Shahrukh khan, Anuksha shrama) Boring for non-shahrukh fans. Would Rate it 1 out of 5.

4. “Ghajini” – (Aamir Khan, Asin) – Total remake of the tamil blockbuster ghajini starring Surya and Asin. Except for last 20 mins climax. Movie is not that great when you compare to the tamil movie which itself is not that great when compared to the hollywood original Momento. But still Ghajini in hindi goes on to become one of the super blockbuster hits of bollywood while doing a huge business in the box-office.

5. “Silambattam” – (Silambarasan) . A very bad tamil movie with a super bad script and super bad acting. Not worth for even writing a review. Stay away from cinema talkies where this movie running. Would rate 0 out of 5.

6. “Chandi Chowk to China” – (Akshay kumar, Mithun Chakarbothy, Deepika Padukone) – Akshay tries his best comedy in this but still he falls short of peoples expectaion this time. Might be his lucky lady Katrina not being a part of the movie. Would Rate it 1 out of 5.
