Watched Dishkiyaoon

One word Avoid, worst script ever, no logic in a supposedly serious movie. Harman Baweja plays a gangster who has more weeping scenes than shooting gun scenes. The movie has lots of twists all of which lack any punch but leaves viewer scratching their heads. Characters don't have any definition, any character does anything. Sunny Deol is wasted in his guest appearance.

0.5/5

I should probably salute your valor and gut-wrenching bravado - of having watched a H. Baweja movie and lived to tell us about it

Sunny Deol seemingly wasn't wearing his 'lucky' banian!

Watched Main Tera Hero. It's a mindless entertainer; a timepass movie. The kinda movie which you say leave your brains at the door and enjoy. There isn't much to laugh but still didn't feel bored. Can be watched once. Varun impresses with his charm and comic timing.

Main Tera Hero: 2.5 /5.

Very thin storyline, and almost makes no sense most of the time, but makes up for it with sheer pace. Forget your brains at home and you should be able to enjoy the movie.

Somehow, the cast does it's job well. Varun feels so natural in this role, Ileana is hot, Nargis sexy, Rajpal Yadav and Arunoday Singh makes for a nice negative comedy role combination, although none of them will get any brownie points for individual performances. Anupam Kher was wasted in his role though.

Did anyone see 2 states? Will probably be going for it on Sunday. Just hope that it is just not another 'hyped' movie with all show & no go.

2 states - Fantastic. 4.5/5

I really loved it. The script & screenplay are very good. Everyone has given a commendable performance, especially Alia. Go for it.

2 States: Just short of being great. Alia Bhatt looks amazing and sweet, acting is superb. Arjun fits the role and does shine but felt somewhere the script could have given him some anger. Never felt bored anywhere during the movie. It is done very well.
Its not for family though, there are some lip locks.

4.5/5

2 states:

Good film, but I feel they could have done better, given the best-seller storyline. Alia Bhatt does justice to her role. What a cutie!

3.5/5 - Good to watch once.

2 States: 7.5/10 (It's a happy go lucky movie. Although people who read the book may know where and how the story moves, yet acting is really good, properly visualized and Aliya Bhatt looks yum. :P It's about love marriage and two different cultures finally coming to terms of acceptance. Worth a watch for a smile's sake)

Aamir: 8/10 (Was on my list since years, finally watched it last weekend. Rajeev Khandelwal is a fine actor and the movie has a very good hold throughout. Absolutely recommend watching this one)

War of the Worlds Goliath: 1/10 (Animated movie. One word: Pathetic)

2 States: Watched it last evening. Good acting by all. Alia Bhatt, to me has looked good for the first time. But if you have read the book, there is nothing extra the movie has to offer. Could have done with a few extra sub plots here and there (like the 3 Idiots). However, one of the better movies recently.

Rating: 4/5

Talking about one funny TV movie, Has anyone got a chance to watch :"Shingora" done by the well famed Persis Khambatta who was a ex-miss world and who was part of Star Trek cast along side Aditya/Nirmal Pancholi.

This was released in 1986 and had a subject on urban woman who are independent and who led a life as they wished. The setting was in urban bombay and dealt with many issues in society.

The movie is available in VHS quality in youtube released by biskoot talkies..

Movie: 2 States

Review: Simple, fun and a nice way to kill time especially when there are no movie alternatives. The movie highlights how marriages in India are not only a relation between 2 people but their families too and a marriage between two people belonging to different cultures is more fun (to watch of course)! Alia Bhat seems to have improved a lot in her acting department and her fan count will surely increase now. Casting was superb, songs were nice and acting was satisfactory all around. I would say it would be difficult for someone not to like this movie - definitely a one time watch.

P.S - I am a big fan of Ronit Roy (who plays Arjun Kapoor's father) but somehow I feel his character was not developed properly in this movie (I am nitpicking here actually). A few more minutes on his character would be great but he did his role brilliantly.

2 States : What a way to spread a message amongst the people that they can slap their father in today's world. Pathetic! Rest was nothing new, regular drama. 2.5/5
