Watched D-Day. A very good movie. Its a 2013 release I think.

Everyone involved has played their part very well. But, somehow felt Huma Qureshi didn't fit the role, though she has acted well.

Would rate 4.5/5. A must watch.

Watched 2 movies last week.

Main Tera Hero: Honestly, did not expect a lot out of it, but it was a decent movie. Kind of a clean comedy, the ones Govida, Salman, Aamir (read: Anadaz Apna Apna, Coolie No 1 etc). Shades of the actors as well. I am not sure as to why the ladies were dressed in ultra shorts- was not necessary. The lead actor does a good job. Overall - Watchable 3/5.

Bhoothnath Returns
: AB roles back the years to give a brilliant performance as a Ghost standing in an election. Very very good. Must say I have enjoyed it more than most of the movies in recent times. There is a song somewhere in the middle .. 'Sahib' is just brilliant. Touches you to the core. There is another 'Dharawi Rap' which is wildly whacky! Must Watch - 4.5/5

I saw it in a theatre on the second day. Despite pathetic reviews, I went, and was joined by 3 other people in the hall. Total five people watching it, on the second day.
Let me add to this list: Buddha Mar Gaya

The reason that I went for the movie was, I had nothing to do and none of the moves sounded promising. This one had Paresh Rawal & Anupam Kher - so might have been fun.
I including 4 others in the cinema hall endured this and came out rather dazed.

The movie is from brilliant director A. R. Murugadoss who also directed Ghajini both in Tamil and Hindi. BTW Tamil version of Holiday movie name was Thuppakki, Vijay was the lead actor there and movie was a superhit

Watched Himess Bhai's 'The Xpose' last week. The movie is surprising, considering the fact it is very much watchable, at least once! If not for anything else, for Himesh R in his new look. Look, we have our very own Rajnikanth of bollywood now. Since, these are the early days of our Rajnikanth, he cannot 'do' much as yet but you have to hear his dialogues to believe them. Amazing dialogues in this movie by HR.

My rating: 3/5 : Most of those points is due to the dialogues.

Saw "ek Villan" Last weekend, songs are amazing specially banjaara, teri galliya , humdard & awari. The first half is good the second half is boring as being a thriller there's no suspense left in the movie such. I think the only suspense is that the heroin was suffering from which disease ? If anyone knows kindly let me know. My rating 2.5/5 mostly for the songs

Watched Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania last Sunday. The movie has some similarities to DDLJ but not entirely a cut-copy-paste job. Varun Dhawan does his job well enough and Alia Bhatt as usual is showing spontaneity with shades of Kareena Kapoor of Jab We Met. The father's role played by Ashutosh Rana is well enacted. Sidharth Shukla is more of a guest actor.

The humor is really good with no cheapness and has Varun with his friends Shonty and Poploo maintain it for the whole movie till the end. Going about the music, the movie has got some peppy dance numbers with good lyrics and a soulful track samjhawan which already has become popular with the people.

All in all a decent attempt by Shashank Khaitan and definitely worth a watch on a relaxed weekend.

Music: 1/1
Acting: 1/1
Comedy: 1/1
Direction: 1/1
Dialogues: 0.5/1

Overall: 4.5/5

Thanks

Watched Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya last night. I would say it was pretty average kind of movie. Varun Dhawan is now getting stereotyped in my opinion. That said, Main Tera Hero was a better watch than HSKD. As AD has said in the previous post, it is not an entire DDLJ rip off, in fact, comparisons are 'drawn' rather forcefully. If this intent was not there by the makers, probably it would have went unnoticed. The second half is slightly better than the first half.

All in all, an average watch to kill your evening if you have nothing much to do. My rating would be 2.5/5

I am not much into contemporary Bollywood movies but recently watched Lootera. It's available on Youtube and that too in HD.

The lead-pair (Sonakshi and Ranveer) lowered my expectations but I was eager to see what they can do while working with a brilliant director like Vikramaditya Motwane. I would say, I was pleasantly surprised especially by Sonakshi.

The movie is set in Zamindari era Bengal and then moves to Dalhousie of 1950s. Perhaps a big reason for me liking it is that a major part of the movie has been shot in Kalatop, one of my favourite spots for vacation in India. Even the music is fantastic. It's a slow, artistic movie so people that like fast paced stories might not appreciate it.

I was slightly disappointed to know that this movie flopped. We hear so many people complaint that they don't make such movies anymore, and when somebody made an attempt, nobody watched...

Watched 'Kick' today.

So, first of all, go for it only if you can watch movies leaving your brain back in the car in the parking lot. All those people who like to point out everytime a law of physics is broken please do not go.

I think, Salman's movie are becoming of the kind where it doesn't matter what storyline it is or how good the direction is. It is just the craze of bhai that makes his movie earn those 150+ crores.

Watch it for fun and just fun. No thinking, nothing doing. Although a no brainer, Salman doesn't fail to get a smile on one's face.I am not a Salman Khan fan, but I make a point to watch all his movies on the first day cuz I enjoy the crowd's whistles, claps and dialogues and it makes it a complete paisa-vasool experience :P

Won't rate it. If you love Salman, you will go for it no matter what and even if you don't you will still go for it, cuz you have no other choices(movies) left and you would want to see it once even if you'd regret your decision later

Watched Kick yesterday and after the movie i kicked myself.

No story at all. This is a movie only for die hard Salman fans.
