You paid 250 bucks!!! I paid 70 bucks at a theater in my hometown and felt even that was a loss.

Probably to show that Chitti (Robot) is far superior to this Ra-One thing.

Saw Ra.One on Diwali day itself.
First half is interesting, second half is a drag. Overall a movie that can excite only kids.

Could not make head and tail of Rajni and Sanjay Dutt's appearance. The only + point of the movie was the acting by the kid and chammak challo song ( more specifically the Tamil verse in the song ).

Yes, it is based on The Italian Job only. In Bollywood anything that is based onto something is like saying the xerox of the original.

Guess what they haven't spared the Minis as well.

Well most of Abbas-Mustan movies are based on Hollywood thrillers but I must admit, they usually do a good job with the overall treatment.

Only fear is that they will kill the thrill and add more drama, plus expect Bipasha to dance!

It's an official remake, I heard. And I hated the trailer - AB jr, Bobby and Nitin Mukesh in an action movie? Bobby is still ok but the other two? And Sonam K driving and drifting with the middle finger pointed to the cameras....yuck. And worst of all, the manly Bips in a bikini.

raOne: What a Disaster, I left at Interval, it was a big torture. Mr. Thackery was right we must be paid with compensation.

Watched Rockstar a few hours back. It has a decent story but I personally felt that the movie was a bit dragged and also has a abrupt ending. Rock On, another movie based on music had a much better storyline IMHO. The main strength of the movie is Rehman's music. All the songs are simply awesome and will stay on the charts at least for the next 3-4 months. An one-time watch for sure!

Rating: 3/5.

Waiting for more reviews of this one. I believe RK is amongst the most talented guys we have around (in the new breed) and is a future super-star who can challenge the existing oldies who dish out same tripe every time. He also has guts to experiment and hopefully this one is a success. We need more guys like him.

Agree. Another highlight of the movie surely is RK's acting. He surely is talented. I didn't like Nargis' acting in this movie, her acting seemed like overacting in certain parts of the movie.

Saw Bol last night.

A movie on the population crisis, hermaphrodite crisis, morality issues etc etc.

The movie starts off a little slow, but picks up pace as it moves along. The peformance by most actors was average-ish, barring the gentleman who plays "Hakeem Saahab". Brilliant acting.

The rest of the cast just pales in comparison. All the sisters and their "Ammi - jaan", with their manicured and polished nails could not make me believe that they do not have enough money for food. Atif Aslam looks lost in the entire movie. The man cannot act ..... period.

Some things in the movie were very hard to digest for me. I mean, does it really happen? Examples - Straight men having a "thing" for a hermaphrodite, a pimp proposing someone to "help him" conceive a girl child instead of keeping their house as collateral for some money he lent etc etc. This seems forced and these situations seem to be artrificially created, only to test the morality of a person (zabardasti) and to show the audience how low can a man stoop. I did not quite get that.

Overall a one time thing. Watch it for hakeem saahab. Cannot say this enough, the man acted wonderfully well.

Rating - 2.5 / 5

Just watched Rokstar .... a good movie after Zindagi na milegi Dobara.

Ranbir's acting is the highlight and a must one time watch. Nargis is hot.
I feel this will be a turning point in Ranbir's acting career, as also rightly pointed out that he is the best amongst the new breed of actors in Bollywood.
