Just finished watching "Shor in the city". The reviews it got were overhyped IMO. Indian cinema seems to be moving towards exposing the Indian underbelly kinda stuff and personally I am getting tired of it.

Some average, over the top performances by majority of the cast. The Indo-American fella (the one who also starred in "heroes" IIRC) was good and played his part convincingly.

And the humor is just so brash and predictable it makes me sick. You can literally see some faaltu character lining himself up to be made fun of by the hero / hero's besshhhtt friend, and the dialogues that follow have a "sprinkling" of hindi abuses. Its getting old people, real old ...... REAL fast.

Tushar K cannot act to save his life. Buttttt, I kinda liked the ending though. Everything works out for everyone in the end (Shhheeeessshhh, such a softy I am na). And just before the credits, I was informed that all events depicted in the film were based on some newspaper stories. What newspaper was that ....... Punjab Kesari?

My rating - 2.5 stars.

Bheja Fry-2 is sheer disaster. The lovers of Bheja-Fry part one will be hurt.

Total total waste of money. I never thought I will be saying this for Bheja-Fry-2, but I want my 300 bucks back.

But the scene after tennis match is pure evil. I remember only that of the whole movie.

My parents had planned to go shopping after watching Bheja Fry 2.

The movie shocked them to an extent that they had to cancel the shopping. Pure torture they tell me, even though they are very easy to please as far as light hindi movies are concerned

Hmmm, seems to be a majority consensus that BF-2 is crap.

Hence, a plea can be floated to save fellow TBHP'ians money

Please save you money and give BF-2 a skip.

If you still watch it, then don't complain here to return you ticket money

Ready - It might have generated crores at the BO, but the film is mind-numbing with plenty of stale and hollowed Salman gags. If only quantity can be equalled with quality...alas!

* stars.

Yes, Bheja Fry 2 was plainly stupid, it felt like the director did it just because he wanted a sequel. It's a no script, no comedy movie, I suggest everyone skip it unless you really want to go to the theater just because it sells good popcorn and nachos

I am waiting for Double Dhamaal, since I liked Dhamaal (even though it was a rip of an English movie, the jokes were pretty humourous). Also, 2 weeks later, Delhi Belly is a film to watch out for. Hope that I won't be dissapointed!

agreed.
its like they picked outwhat the most funny traits from the 1st were, and just magnified it tenfold!!
K K menon looks, acts, and talks like an idiot as corporate head honcho, seriously, such departure from shaurya and gulaal..

With all the Bheja(s) being fried (or fired!), I dont think I am Ready for any of the new ones!

I better watch Andaaz Apna Apna (again!)
I wish they play it again in multiplexes! ( can they do that?)

When is the Random One releasing? (the Ra.One, I mean) (cant wait for that one to fall splatt )

Ace.

Stanley ka Dabba: Brilliant. SHould watch. It has a lot of arty style attached to it unlike TZP which was very emotional. But a very nice movie to watch. The kids have done a brilliant role in this movie and you will surely miss school after watching this.

Amole Gupte: Hats off
