I haven't seen the movie yet, but have seen Sudesh Lehri in the promos. As Sudesh comes in comedy circus too, it must be him.

Watched Ready & My review is exactly same as Mobike's

You will love this movie if you are Salman Khan fan

3.5/5

Also Watched Chalo Dilli

Although a nice movie, I got bored in between as it looked like Vinay Pathak was doing a part 2 of Bheja Fry.

2.5/5

I have to agree.

One of the most boring films in recent times. What was the director trying to make - a tear-jerker, a comedy or a film based on cricket?

Oh wait, he was trying to say that you can make a comeback even after 17 years out of the competitive game, and still clean bowl some of the best current players around?!

Was Akshay's character crazy enough to even apply for it, or the great minds of English cricket even crazier to give him that chance?!

I think most things got lost in translation. LOL!

Although, Anushka Sharma is a treat to watch. Everytime she was up she stole the scenes. Such a shame, she was wasted in this film.


Last watched -

Game - Decent enough thriller, but a climax half-predictable and half-silly. 2 stars.

Dum Maro Dum - Solid story, weak acting. And again, the climax becomes a big letdown. 2 and half stars.

Thank You - Will they stop making rehashes of Masti and keep packaging them as "something new"? Even Mallika's Razia can't save this turkey. Half a star.

Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji - Ajay impresses yet again, Emraan is his usual self. Someone needs to tell Shazahn that cute and bubbly are not synonymous with annoying. Shruti has nothing to do. Shraddha Das is probably the only one with some decent acting. Watch it if you have nothing else to do. 3 stars.


All these bad/mediocre watches made me want to revisit one of my favorites...

Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron - What a refreshing blast! A complete laugh riot from beginning to end. Naseer and Ravi are delightful, Satish Shah is a real hoot (specially as the corpse), and Pankaj Kapoor and Om Puri are scene stealers in every scene they are in. One of the best comedies ever made in movie history, IMO. Ranks alongside Golmaal (Amol Palekar one). 4 and half stars.

This movie is a true cult comedy.I don't remember how many times i must have seen the movie.

Every thing about this movie is just perfect;the chemistry between Nasirudddin shah and Ravi basvani is amazing.

Heh. Saw Patiala House on a flight just last week. What a disaster! Really a joke of a movie.

How can I ever forget "Chashme Baddoor", a movie, that can never be remade. Farooque Shaikh, Ravi Baswani and Rakesh Bedi as three friends and their age old Jawa as their only ride. Saeed Jaffrey as Lallan Miyan, I am still searching for one paan waalah who is as good as Lallan Miyan. Then Deepti Naval with her Chamko Washing Powder.

Wish someone could give me the DVD of this movie.

David Dhawan is doing a blasphemy by remaking the 1981 film Chashme Baddoor. Rishi Kapoor would play the role of Lallan Miyan.

Thanks RavenAvi and Traveloholic for bringing up the subject of these two great movies. Both were practically anthems to hindi cinema. Not to mention, Golmaal and Angoor ( which incidentally is getting re-made as we speak with Rohit Shetty behind the camera).

JBDY was made by a bunch of NSD students with almost no budget and went on to become a pioneer in comedy movies in bollywood. Alas, none could come closer.

However, some movies like "No Entry" "Hera Pheri" and "Welcome" came about 25%-50% closer to JBDY. There's a long way for any movie to come neck to neck of JBDY.

P.S: Next movie in line " Band Baja Baraat". Reviews please?

Mobike:
I did not like "Band Baaja Baraat".
The story line is flawed.
A woman takes a liking to a man. Sleeps with him. Then wants to collect the due in terms of marriage, fidelity and all that Archie Hallmark carp. The man runs away only to come back later. And they live happily ever after.

P.S: I know Hyderabadis love watching movies but you manage to watch almost any film.

Wrong.

This cult comedy was produced by National Film Development Corporation which is a central agency based out of Mumbai.

The remake stars SRK and Tushar Kapoor

SRK might still do ok, but Tushar ??

Thanks for reviews.

Download2live, I am huge fan of movies and love mostly english movies. However, I do enjoy a good hindi movie once in a while and also have my favorite set of stars like anyone else. However, prefer watching hindi movies in theatre as watching them at home is intolerable for me.

Having said that, these hindi movie sessions is only to please and support the better half's commands

Thanks for correction. Maybe the actors were all colleagues in NSD. Something about NSD just got stuck to me. I was wrong.

All said and done. RS has a flair for comedy and he will come up with something stupidly funny for sure. But, comparing that with original version would be blasphemy
