It is about people being murdered in a train that runs just past the midnight and a photographer trying to unveil the mystery behind it. On second thoughts butchered is the right word than murdered , so be prepared for the blood bath .

Best thing about the movie was casting Vinnie Jones as the butcher. But yeah, the ending was a big let down. Still, not as graphic as Hostel.

Watched Step Brothers some days back. If you like 40 year olds acting as 40 year olds acting as teenage kids, then you will like it. However, I found the humor to be a bit too vulgar for my liking.

Plan to watch Traitor tonight. Traitor (2008)
Don Cheadle in the lead role, should be interesting.

I saw Dostana yesterday. The movie was worth the money. I liked it morethan Golmaal Returns.

John was not having enough dialogues in the film. I felt, only Abhishek was speaking.

Bobby Deol was OK. Priyanka looked better than in Fashion.

Gay jokes were awesome.

I agree with you on Step Brothers. I wasnt too amused and I would rather say that, there is more of toilet humor than qualitative humor.

Traitor is brilliant! Watched it two times

Right now, am watching Russell Peters :P

Heard its a crappy film. In fact, Sanjay Dutt himself walked out of the premier show because he thought it was one pointless boring movie.

This morning they were showing 'Kalyug' on 9X movies. A modern day 'Mahabharat' in the true sense with very well written characters. Not sure when it was made, but I reckon it could be the early 80s.
A split family business, dueling cousins, a Karna, a Bhishma Pitamaha, you name it the movie has it!
Very strong performances from all the actors most notably Shashi Kapoor, Victor Banerjee, Anant Nag, Rekha, Sushma Seth and AK Hangal.
Must watch if you like 'drama'. 4.5/5 rating.

Watched DOSTANA yesterday.

I thought the first half was hilarious, the second half was slow and got a little boring for me.

John looks STUNNING !! Abhishek does not have any screen presence once John comes on the screen. Even though Abhishek had most of the Dialogues. No Wonder John's been voted as one of the most sexiest people by FHM. Ladies will love John - there is just too much of him

Priyanka looks Ravishing !!

The GAY dialogues are brilliant. I loved ' The Gay Gabbar Singh ' Dialogue. The scene where her Mom arrives is also Hilarious.

Bobby is his usual self ( I did not like the new hairstyle ). Long suits you Bobby !

Overall - A good fun movie worth a watch.

Pink Caddy looks DROOL !!

RATING - 3/5

I too watched it last night. And, my feelings match almost yours. First half was good not great. Second half was crappy and boring ( I felt to me that the gay thing was being stretched too long). How can the entire damn movie revolve around this subject?

John was hot but didnt look nice in those extreme close-ups ( lot of pores,marks on his face). Abhishek got the best lines but he is not a hero material at all. Looks quite awkward for a hero, he was better off studying/working in Boston.

Priyanka was delicious and to an extent little artificial. She exposed helluva lot in this movie and all the guys in the movie get to enjoy some some tight hugs from her.

Boman and Kiron Kher were the best, though their part was small. And, the INS officer was cool. I laughed a lot when he asks " Whom is she talking to" when Kiron raises her face and prays to the lord on this gay predicament of her son.

All in whole, some silly fun with colorful background theme.

2.5/5
