BHOOTHNATH

A must watch !! I went in with no expectations and the movie simply surprised me.

It's a formula film with a formula story. Kids will have great fun in the 1st half and the movie veers towards relationships in the 2nd half.

Amitabh is in fine form playing the ghost and he is supported well by Juhi, Satish Shah and the small kid. Shahrukh is there in a guest appearance.

At least 3 songs are not required and they slow down the movie. The movie is well shot and special effects are very good.

Verdict - 3/5.

A movie for kids and adults alike. Go watch it.

Sorry N_C. It had to happen some day I guess. I did not like the movie.

Too kiddish in the first half with an overdone performance by Juhi Chawla and the second half gets too emotional. All in all, a movie neither for kids nor for adults.

Looks like I pipped you to this one, buddy. I saw Jimmy on Wednesday night. To be truthful, Mimoh will make it as an actor. There are much worse "stars" in Bollywood. Sure his voice sounds like he's attaining puberty during the shoot, but what the heck. People get used to such stuff. And this lad is a splendid dancer and has put a whole hearted effort into a totally cocky movie without a single noteworthy co-actor. Unless you count Shakti Kapoor, who constantly asks the heroine, "Aapne L lagaaya? Aage lagaya ya peeche lagaya etc", supposedly in reference to her car which she is learning to drive.

Default Movies i saw last weekend

The Bank Job-Nice movie based on real incidents.A must see,also get to see a lot of vintage beauties since jason statham who is playing lead role is working in a garage.

Flawless-saw its trailer in TV a few times and thought it will be having a fantastic plot about a diamond robbery,but didn't live up to my expectations,only thing that kept me going was mystery of where did all those diamonds went?

Vantage Point-first half seems boring with repetition of same sequences about president's assasination but film raises to an edge of seat thriller in second half.A chase between an opel astra and cop car is spot on.

Saw "Speed Racer" last. Frankly I was expecting a lot so was a little disappointed with the movie. It is partly animated. Though the animation is really well done but over all a fairly okay movie.
