Saw Vantage Point yesterday.
Good movie, but nothing exceptional. Story telling would have been nicer had they not repeated the sequence of events 5 times! But maybe thats the whole point of the movie! Trying to showcase the events from different perspectives.

Saw Bombay to Bangkok on DVD day before. The less I say about it, the better. Had actually walked away from it midway. And the kind of movie buff I am, I usually dont walk away from movies. So that might explain how bad it was. Not expected of NK and ST

Exactly. Even other rubbish movies have something good about them but Bombay to Bangkok is probably the worst movie ever. You just dont know why it was made.

Well watched mithya yesterday.
Ranvirs acting is good and and vinays acting is nice.
The movie was not impressive and looked as though the director wanted to put too much into the movie in the time permitted.

And to top it all, before the movie launch there was Shreyas on some interview bloating abut how 'different' this movie was. Pretty evident, i must say.

I didnt watch the movie, but hearing the reviews made me decide never to.

RGV's fall from grace is very intriguing. You just cannot imagine that the guy who made SATYA has also directed RGV ki AAG.

and as if this wasnt enuf torture , he is planning to work out on hiw mistkaes by making it again. god only knows who will agree to play such stupid roles again.

i think he will become gabbar himself and when he wont anybody else to play the roles, he will ask him self, "kitne aadmi the?"

please give us a break rgv.

Any reviews on the German movie 'The Lives of Others'. Its apparently won some 47 awards, and is highly recommended.

My thanks too. I somehow haven't gotten around to see this one yet. Have just located a DVD of this (Das Leben der Anderen). Will watch it this weekend (God, Work & Fiancee permitting).

Comments about 'The Angrez'?
I have just started watching this movie, and i just love it. The Hyderabadi lingo both from the old City areas, as well as the New Hyderabad have been captured very well. Since i had friends who were from the Old City, i can relate to the language rather well.

Will update once i finish watching the movie.
