Saw 99 twice already. Damn good movie. Its on the lines of lock stock and two smoking barrels. Crime comedy caper.

Casting was the high point. Each one suited the role to the T. The good part is that the comedy isn't forced unlike several movies (ex Singh is Kinggg). And very intelligently written with full research. Kudos to the team.

In this light I would like bring to the notice of another movie of the same team, FLAVORS. Its amount desi americans and their lives. It has won critical acclaim and one of the best romantic comedy movies I saw.

Strongly recommended - 4/5

Saw 'Ek Ruka Hua Faisla' last night. What a brilliant movie, no hero no villains infact no names for the characters.

Really awesome - 4.5/5

I believe it was a remake of an English movie "12 angry men", need to get hold of that one

12 Angry Men was one of the best movies I have seen till date ... The torrents are abundant in any popular torrent sites .. My rating for the english movie is 5/5.

The hindi movie is line to line copy of the English movie.

Just saw Manoj Kumar's CLERK this morning on Zee Classic. I am yet to recover from the madness. Its a laugh riot. The Ashok Kumar heart attack scene and he recovering by listening to a Dash Bhakti song is worth a million bucks.

Do not miss this . Its crazy. What hamming !!!

Leave aside the cliches, and i dont see what was so horrible about it. I can watch movies like Outsourced a lot more times than some Hindi movie like Kisna. To me, that genre gets the 1/5 rating and below. Oh wait, i hate 'Teeth' as well, which earned my ire.

Benny - I bow down to you. Respect.

If you watched Kisna - you are the God of Celluloid.

Tell me about it! It was a well-guarded secret till i revealed it here.
I was dragged into watching it at a theatre which i even had to pay for.

Isha doing her rope act i still equate with a monkey on steroids.

Luck has been rather kind to me with other movies, so have escaped the agony. Tashan i never even dared to watch, and the reviews only proved me right.

Looks like all the skeletons from your closet are tumbling out now, Gautam.
