2 States - 2.5/5

Unimpressive acting by Arjun Kapoor especially the dialogue delivery. It felt a bit forced upon and artificial. As for Alia Bhatt, she was to portray a tambrahm girl but she remotely resembled one! I havenít read the book so I canít comment on the adaptation aspect but my fiancťe says it didnít. Ronit Royís acting was sheer brilliance! He seemed to be the lone guy who did justice to his role in the movie. If youíve watched Udaan, you can relate to the experience. If you havenít watched Udaan yet, please do! Revathi did her role quite well too.

After the movie, I was left wondering if Genelia could have been the ideal replacement for Alia, knowing how well she acted in Bommarillu and Santosh Subramaniam. Or even Asin! If the producers could have talked Aamir into taking up the role, it would have been awesome! He looks younger as the days pass by.

Heropanti, remake of telugu film Parugu, is your usual masala entertainer. Tiger Shroff makes an impressive debut. His performance was good enough for a new comer. Prakash Raj enacts the same role which he did in the telugu version and this is his best role in a hindi movie so far. Kriti Sanon looks beautiful and did her role well. Director Sabbir Khan has managed to present the movie as a good entertainer. Overall, its a decent timepass movie.

My Rating- 7/10

For the past two days, I've been watching what can only be termed as the crowning glory of Hindi cinema.
A movie that traverses the circle of gradation to cross over from the ultimately ridiculous,to the entertainer of the century, nay, millennium. Nay, universe(disconnected superlative, sorry).

Jaani dushman - ek anokhi kahani.

Anokhi is appropriate. It defines the word.
Can all of us who have had the privilege of having seen this, please raise our hands?

Neither been there, never done that
But why are you torturing yourself so much? Punishing yourself for something that you felt bad about? Let it go, we are against capital punishment.

BTW, why watching since last 2 days? Not able to take it more than 10 minutes at a time?

I've literally been rushing home from meetings, putting it on with a cuppa, and guffawing. So, two days.

Anyone suffered 'Purani jeans' lately? Good competition to Yaarian I guess.

1.5/5

Watched "Holiday" over the weekend.
Akshay Kumar is great throughout the movie. Sonakshi also does her dumb heroine job very well.
The story is good however the actor who plays the villain role should have been more meaner and villanish. He has very boyish charms to play a villain and looks a very odd choice.

Overall its worth spending 2.5 hours
My rating 3.5/5

This is a remake of the Tamil movie Thuppakki, which is also directed by Murugadoss. I watched the original. The villian in that was perfect (Vidyut Jamwal, the one in the John Abraham movie Force).

Oh man, I watched this movie in theatre first or second day day of its release. I am surprised to see that it took you more than a decade to find this gem. 5/5 rating from me!

I mean this move must have something going for it.. Zee Cinema seems to rerun it to eternity!

Or maybe because it was 'inspired' from a bunch of English movies including the Matrix..

In that case you have not heard of 'Gunda'. This movie takes all the oscars in the 'So bad its good' category. Comical dialogues, farcical plot, rock bottom production values and even lower moral standing (depiction of women), this movie has it all.

Mera naam hai.....
Of course, gunda rules!
But it was expected from a mithun movie, more or less. Even today, if I remember the g9 theme in the morning, it's stuck in my head the whole day. That's mithun for you.
But this one, oh boy!!
It should be a cult movie as well!
