All four in 1 CD! Any new compression format?
A VCD not of great quality ones. They usually get 4 or 5 movies in a CD. Got a dump from a friend?

Saw 3 idiots. Would rate it pretty good even though many scenes are typical of our movies. However it does contain a strong message for a large majority of parents and institutions in India. Btw, I believe the college scenes (ICE) are shot in IIMB.

Saw Chance pe Dance today. Apart from Shahid's dance and a few good songs, there's nothing great in the movie. 1.5/5

Saw "Khamosh" directed by Vidu Vinod Chopra ( 3 Idiots/Munna Bhai fame) which happens to be his first movie and that too a crime thriller.

It is amazing to know such a thriller was made in 1985. It has all famous stars and suspense that will make your nails bite into your armrest.

Awesome movie. Must watch for thriller fans.

4.5/5

Spotted one mistake in 3 Idiots.

When both, Raju and Farhan are holding the contanier with Javed Jafri's father's Aasthi, Raju and Farhan drop the lid of the container in toilet. Now after the story of Aamir khan, when Raju and Farhan along with Cahtur leave Javed's Jafri's house, Jafed Jafri checks if Aasthi are OK or not. Javed Jafri lifts the lid of the container to check this, but the lid was thrown in toilet. So where it came from ? Common sense says its a mistake.

There are many arguments for this, but overall, this is a mistake. Still people rate 3 idiots as good which is bad IMHO.

Yes, Khamosh was excellent but the first movie of Vidhu Vinod Chopra as a director was Sazaaye Maut, which failed to get a nationwide release. Khamosh is special for me because it was the first movie I had watched in Delhi (Odeon), a day after I had arrived in the city for my B.Sc. Admissions.

Just back after watching ISHQIYA. Powerful acting by Vidya Balan. Naseeruddin Shah & Arshad Warsi have also done a good job. Storyline is a bit confusing. But definitely a must watch. 4/5

PS: As warned before, there's a lot of swearing.

If i were to go by such reviews, Taran Adarsh praised it a lot. giving 4/5. But i would give more weight-age to the views of members here.

Those reviews are of little interest to me. hope you understand.

Rann

If you have watched Sarkar-2 , you pretty much have watched Rann - except the setting that has been shifted to the Tv news reporting field. It's Deja Vu time. The direction is standard RGV as is the camera work (jerky, tight close ups) and the back ground score is SUPER SHRIEKY LOUD.

The movie is only redeemed by some powerful performances lead by AB and Ritiesh Deshmukh .

Verdict - 2/5. If you cannot watch it, you haven't missed much.

ISHQIYA -

Just caught it tonight - 10 PM Show with a few friends.

Excellent acting by all 3 main lead actors.

Movie is set in Gorakhpur and Eastern UP and is a bit slow in my opinion.

Not fast paced and gets boring at times.

Dialogues are nice and some scenes are very intelligently shot.

Watch it if yout got nothing to do tommorrow. Else wait for the DVD to come out.

3/5
