watched Dhoom Dhadaka over the weekend
- horrible script
- useless comedy
- waste of actors such as Anupam Kher and Satish Kaushik

Watched the movie Music and lyrics.
Well its about a one time rockstar who is broke and performs in marriages or functions to make money. So he wants to write a song for this famous singer who is like shakira but he cannot write a song. So in comes drew barrymore and she helps in write the song and then there is some spark etc etc...
Well all i can say is its ok but nothing great.
1.5/5

Nah havent seen hastey hastey.

Actually I went for the Premiere of Woodstock Villa yesterday but then ended up not watching the movie at all since we heard all the stars would come in after we went into that particular screen after which we would not be allowed outside. And the starts would watch a later show in another screen. Since we anyways didnt expect anything from Woodstock, we just hung around the cafeteria area and the bar serving free alcohol since it was a premiere. That way we spent a couple of hours just oogling at all the stars just came in from close proximity. After all the stars arrived we left.

So no review for Woodstock from me

P.S : Aishwarya is gorgeous and Abhishek looks ishmart boy.

@Dippy, you did yourself a favor by not watching ''Woodstock Villa"

ohmygod, i happened to see the movie and the first thing that strikes you is has the director gone mad with the camera. The entire movie is shot with jerky movements and you cannot lay your eyes on any one object for more than a millisecond. It really gave me a headache

Story- totally crap and meaningless
Sound/music/songs- can't hear a damn thing as the music is so loud, lyrics not audible at all
Actors-Sikander looks more like a villain than a conventional hero. Neha less said the better. she is more suitable for item girl songs

Overall, one hell of a crap movie and watch it at your risk

Rating : -1/5

The first time I saw Sikander Kher, I thought they were shooting for a Ramsay horror movie (I didn't know who is "daddy" was). Well, if T. Kapoor "tries" his hand at movies why not Sikander Ramsay (or was that Kher again>?) But TK is much better compared to this newcomer (I never imagined I would say TK is "better" than another actor)

Guys who in the Blazes goes to see a movie caled Woodstock Villa, starring some wannabe chaps. That Guy Sikander, i believe is Kiron Kher's son from her first marriage, thats why he looks like her so much and nothing like Anupam. He might be a good actor but good looking he is definately not. With lips like Mick Jaggaer and hair like Hema Malini, this guy would scare the jeepers out of every girl. Then theres Neha something... She looks like a train just hit her. Shes across between Divya Palat (dont bother, I know you dont know her and you are not missing anything) and your maid.
I was watching tv a few days ago and these guys were guests on some reality show. They both look UGH!! The chick has no oomph nor innocence (also no talent nor dress sense im told). I cant speak about either's acting capabilities since im not seeing this movie even if my life depended on it. Serves you right, for getting freaked, all of you who dared to see this film.
The theres this wannabe Hritik, Harman Baweja whos promos (Love Story 2050) are doing the TV rounds with Priyanka Chopra.) He tries so hard to look like Hritik. Then you see him dance and shout "YO" at every verse end of the song they are flashing. If you are still not on the floor laughing, you would know to avoid this movie too.
I think i will try to write reviews about bad movies. I love the job!!

Thumbs down

Guys I went to watch Indiana Jones yesterday. Well its just something like a masala mix or fruit mix of many movies with Harrison ford trying to get them all together.

Just to name a few movies which i felt inspired this movie.

1) National treasure with all the el dorado and treasures and gold city etc etc plus some mix of oldies love story and arguments thrown in.
2) Mummy for the insects part of it only.
3) Any UFO flick. Specially independence day.

This movie started off well but toward the interval it feels like a inspiration. The only plus point in the first half is th Harley Davidson which is shown(god its awesome) and the chase sequence involving it. Harrison ford plays his age and does not try to act like a young kiddo. The other supporting lead is also good in it. But overall the movie didnt have much to offer other than some charm. Trust me the end had so much spielberg touch to it. In the negative sense
Would rate 2/5 just for the charm Well now coming to another point.

Mtv youngistan show rates it 4.1/5 and buzz 18 gave 4.5/5 I am so damn sure they were sleeping during the show because it does not deserve so much.
