I think Ranbir is committing the same mistake Amir Khan did after QSQT. Signing each and every film coming his way.

Probably he will learn the hard way.

+1.

If anyone has seen KITES ( which was another major torture), AA is a slightly faster version of the same.

Both these movies should never have seen a day on the production floor. May they learn from their losses

I found "Anjaana Anjaani" very very similar to "Jab We Met".

Its a very average movie, definitely not worth going for in multiplexes.
Its one time weekend watch on TV.

Really looking forward to these movies:

Allah kay banday


Aakrosh


Guzaarish


Rakta Charitra (Not a Vivek Oberoi fan, but this looks prmising. Could be a comeback movie for both RGV and VO. Looks like a mix of Company (one of my favorite movies) and Rajneeti)

Saw this movie on Friday night. Its the story of two people whom "fate" decides to meet up whilst attempting suicide respectively.

Rest of the movie shows how their several attempts at suicide fail.

Entire movie is revolving around Ranbir and Priyanka with some of the lamest dialogues ever heard in movie history.

I couldnt bear the torture and left a few minutes after the intermission.

Stay away

0/5
While the movie is a torture i love the songs. Especially Hairat, Tujhe Bhula Diya, its remix and title song.

And parts in Vegas is good and so is there small road trip that is shown.

Anybody saw "Khichadi"?

I was dragged to the theatre by the Mrs. (gujju + a HUGE fan of the TV show). I have till date not seen a single episode of this programme.

I have to say, it was timepass. I was not bored. In fact, some parts of the movie (explaination of certain english words by "Praful" to "Hansa") were hilarious.

Saw Kichdi this afternoon. Very nice adaptation from the tv serial, though I would have preferred the original artiste from the tv serial to have played Jaishree's character. You have to pay attention to the dialogues to get the funnies. Definitely worth a watch. 3.5/5

Hope Raktha Charitra doesn't become another Aag. I really liked Sarkar and Satya.

Guzaarish promos look promising. Ash and Hrithik performances would be great in this movie. For some reason, i have a strong feeling that this movie will sweep filmfare.

Totally Hilarious and would say perfect review of a perfectly crappy movie.

I agree with one of the comments. Indian Coast Guard, Indian Doctor so why not set the movie in India

Ya, wife said the same thing about the original cast (Jayashree) not being there. Also, were there any characters from the show that were missing in the movie?

By the way, after reading the "Anjaana Anjaani" reviews here (,there and everywhere), the one and only conclusion is that the phillum is a suckfest. STILL !!!!! Times of India rates the movie 3 stars and "Khichdi" 2.5? Something's fishy methinks.

Robot

Quite unlike a Rajni movie - has no typical rajni mannerisms and is painfully slow till the climax where ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE ! The climax is an awesome roller coaster and paisa vasool. Add to it a couple of Rajni moments with the chase of the train and the mosquito sequence.

Other than that - the special effects are good, very good in fact. The songs are awful, horrid infact in the Hindi version and slow the pace down even further.

Verdict - 2.5/5. 2 for the FX and .5 for Rajni
