a movie about a bookie who try's but always lands on the bad side and how he meets a girl and tries to make money through her in illegal bare fists fights a real good movie.

Last Sunday I was watching an old Western movie. Suddenly I jumped up and said "Oh my god, this is where they stole it from...".

I am referring to the scene in Sholey, where Sanjiv Kumar's entire family is killed one by one by unseen gunmen from far. Finally the remaining kid is shot from close. I thought that scene was original to the movie.

Now a small quiz, which was the western movie I was watching?

PS: Sholey story was inspired by Magnificent Seven, which in turn is a remake of Seven Samurai. This scene isn't from these movies.

@ Samurai - I had seen that western movie but cant recalled the name!

Couple of days back saw a Michael Douglas movie on Zee Studio at around 3 am. He was the CIA agent in that getting his son married. Anyone knows the name of that movie?

HELLO

Just got back a while ago after watching 'Hello' , the movie adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's "One Night at the Call Center". Though I didnt read the book before I saw the movie (I have just started reading it), my friends who accompanied have. The character names are the same as in the book with Salman Khan playing the author's role. The other characters are played by

Shyam - Sharman Joshi
Vroom - Sohail Khan
Radhika - Amrita Arora
Priyanka - Gul Panang
Esha - Isha Koppikar
Military Uncle - Sharat Saxena
Bakshi - Dalip Tahil

The movie is good fun in the first half. The second half is decent but the ending could have been handled better. Also many parts from the book have not been depicted in the movie and those are some good parts as told to me by my friends. Among the cast, Sohail Khan was my pick for his comedy timing and some of his dailogues. Sharman fitted the role of Shyam well. The girls are ok, no histronics from them. Sharat Saxena is decent. Dalip Tahil goes overboard playing Bakshi the boss. Found him quite irritating at times.

They say the novel is always better than it's movie adaptation and this holds true for Hello as well. The movie could have been executed much better. It was lagging something in places. I would still say it is a one time watch especially for those who have read the novel.

My rating : 3/5

I found the novel to be pathetic so don't have hopes from the movie. Most probably will give it a slip ? What's on next week ?

Well himesh himself has gone and said that Ranbir suits the role of MONTY better!! Well the music was good and its nice to hear the nasal twang back after quite a long break. Will see how this movie turns out to be.

Well i want Hello to do well. Music sounds nice.
And about books making it to theatres i am badly waiting for Chetan Bhagats 5.someone to hit screens fast as Rajkumar hirani is in the directors seat of that one.
