Watched Bachna Ae Haseeno today, pretty nice movie & totally recommended! It's not a Quadrangular love story, I'll just say that much!

But the comic part is really nice with Sachin (Ranbir's best friend) taking the cake! The first half especially is very very funny & nice due to their antics. The second half does tend to get a bit slow as Ranbir goes about correcting his mistakes but is not bad at all. Minissha & Deepika look absolutely ravishing, Bipasha I'm not sure about! Deepika especially plays her character beautifully & really is more than a match for Ranbir in the movie!

Some great locations, good music & hot looking actresses add to the appeal of the film.

I would give it a 3.5/5 & IMO it's a worth watch!

Bachna Ae Haseeno

A story of a guy who falls in love with 3 different females at different times in his life. While he dumps the first 2 , the 3rd girl dumps him. And then he feels the pain caused and decides to seek forgiveness of those 2 girls he dumped.

An absolutely breezy 1st half with a super slow 2nd half. All the actors have performed well. Ranbir has to carry the movie on himself and he does it quite well.
Bipasha and Deepika look good while Minisha is cute (I loved her track more than the other 2).

A couple of songs - Ahista Ahista and Khuda Jaane are very good. The rest are bad.

The movie could have been 30 mins shorter and I would have given it a 3.5. It's got fantastic locales and camerawork is good. Direction looses the grip a bit in the 2nd half.

Verdict - 2.5/5.
You will love the 1st half and want the 2nd to be over asap.

Default God Tussi Great Ho

A bollywood rip-off of Bruce Almighty, although not as much as I had feared it to be. Salman Khan is a talented though out of luck TV anchor, who seems to blame God for all the non-happenings in his life. His shows fail, his father keeps cribbing and complaining all day long and he has a 'Jassi-jaisee-koi-nahi' type of sister who the family wants married off desperately. Amitabh, who plays God, grants him a meeting and gives him the powers to run the world for 10 days. Its a moralistic story of how man is selfish and how God keeps balance in the world.

Piggy Chops is looking quite sexy, albeit has no meaty role in the movie. Sohail Khan as usual rides as a 2nd hero in Salman's movies. Comedy is a force fit I feel and not genuine. The only saving grace is Salman Khan with a good performance.

Just a timepass. 5/10

I forgot to add - they showed the promos of DOSTANA from the Karan Johar camp - the movie stars AB Jr, Priyanka and John Abraham.

Priyanka is in a bikini (wow), AB is a bore and John is SUPER WOW as he appears from the sea in a Daniel Craig like shorts "ABSOLUTELY DROOOOOOOOOOL"

He looks HOT HOT HOT !!

Watch the promo here -

At last I saw Singh is Kinng (Whats with the two Ns)
I have never likes any of Anees Bazmees films but he must be doing something right for all his films being block buster hits.
I did not get tickets in Inox nor Imax so settled for a 8.30 show in Metro. The theatre was 40% empty but agai, this theatre has 5 screens out of which 3 were screening the movie at that time.
If you are a Punjabi or understand punjabi you will find the film hilarious. The dialogues are to die for and I can think of a few which the censors missed, due to their lack of understanding the language i presume.
AKshay is brilliant and im sure will walsk away with the award of the best actor in a comic role. Mark my words.
I am not a Katreena Kaif fan so the less said about her the better.
I went to the theatre to expect some really bad acting and a lot of actors hamming. To my surprise I found that to be untrue, except inthe case of Javed Jafri. He seems to have taken his enacting and spoofing the mannerisms of senior actors very seriously.
Remember he spoofed Feroze Khan in Salam Namaste and he does here with a double role. As Mikka he spoofs Dara Singhs dialogue delivery (and fails miserably at that) and as the old guy he spoofs Amrish Puri. In both, i thought he was bad. Javed is a great actor with fantastic comic timing but although his timing is perfect, he should try some experiments on his acting. Seeing him dance was a delight, though he has danced after a long time on screen.
The story is....well theres no story, but in a movie like this you go to get a few laughs and for total time pass which is succeeds in.
Kiron Kher is fantastic in a small role and I loved it when she looks at Akshay and asks him why he is dressed as Alladin??
There are small, small touches of humour here and there which one should notice and the Music is foot stomping.
The track, "Jee Karda" is a night club hit. Even "Bhootni Ke" is a good. "Teri Ore" is a beautifully composed melody but what takes the cake is the Title track "Singh Is Kinng" by Mika, which is one of the most rocking Hip Hop tracks that i have heard in a long time.
Sonu Sood being used as a table and a nut bowl holder then as a wicket keeper on wheel chair is hilarious.
All in all a very watchable film with good stunts.
I would give it a 3/5.

Piggy Chops in bikini thats some real drool maal. She is one sexy babe. So that makes a total of 3 Bollywood babes in Bikini. Bipasha, Kareena and now Priyanka.

P.S. Just saw the trailer on Youtube. Its not a *real* bikini as I expected, but more like the 'Bollywood-covered-bikini'. :-(. I think the only REAL bikini worn onscreen was by Bipasha in Dhoom 2. I dont consider Kareena's bikini in Tashan as 'sexy'

P.P.S Gautam - since when did you start noticing guys so seriously? ;-)

Cos, that scene reminded me of Daniel Craig in the bond flick and with the portly AB alongside John - obviously John was more in the limelight.

Uff !! Bas Gautam, Bas !!! I never knew you found guys drooling

REVIEW - BACHNA AE HASEENO -

Just watched this movie today.

I loved the movie as it is refreshingly different. Ranbeer has to be the latest heartthrob for all the girls. The 3 Girls look ravishing. Deepika & Ranbeer definetely have chemistry and they look lovely together.

The movie is a mix of Comedy and Love. A good entertainer, especially for the younger generation ( 16 - 30 yr age group ). Older people might find it a bit boring.

There are 3 kissing scene's in the movie, one for every girl but the one with Bips takes the cake ( Mind Blowing !!! ). MUST WATCH guy's

The Locales as Gautam mentioned are fantastic and beautifully picturised. The song '' Khuda Jaane '' is AWESOME !!

VERDICT - 3.5 / 5. MUST SEE !!

Hellboy 2 - The movie was very ummm `comical`.
I know it is based on a comic book character but the first movie was dark and serious which made it interesting.
This one is only for the kids.
