Was "Cable Guy" dubbed in hindi as " Cablewalla"?

Another MUST-NOT watch movie is Dus. The scene in the end where all three are repeating their own dialogs for almost 15 minutes made me feel like uprooting the chair i was sitting on and throwing it at the screen.

did anyone see chocolate?? man couldnt get any worse.. the songs ..Bad.. the story pathetic.. and in one chase they have actually disguised an eicher truck as a london police van.. and it gets even worse when the cop cars are shown in london chasing them whereas the van is on our own Mumbai Pune express way.. it was hilarious!!

Another one was Transporter2.. although some scenes were good.. again it made u feel like u were watching a hindi movie with really outrageous scene.. esp the one where he looses the bomb from the undercarriage of the Audi A8.. pathetic..

the cop cars shown in London are Vauxhall & in next scene they have shown Daewoo Cielo/Nexia

just loads of crap taken together & thrown on camera

Hey we've forgotten to add 'Tarzan - the wonder car' and 'Jo Bole So Nihaal' to this exhaustive list.
I think the directors of these films must be given a trophy for thier optimism.

ahem- i believe winners of other categories (tarzan has won the award for "the most idiotic movie of all times- hindi") are not eligible to be nominated for this category...LOL...

yup- remember the scene (also shown in promos) where esha deol is going sideways in a red car..?? that, was a mustang (or it was supposed to be), transformed to a cielo while going sideways, and converted to a mustang again while the camera goes into the front...

another crappy scene- a dead body is chucked into a LHD lancer's boot (suniel shetty's wife's car; the car appeared to be LHD, since she drove, stopped, and got down from the left), in india; the car lot had all indian cars; and then, the body is recovered from a ford cab (in australia?? new york??), which, voila, is supposed to be the same car owned by shetty's wife- the same car into whose trunk the body was crammed in (the lancer..!!).....damn, that movie should get the "worst directed/negligent" award (or maybe the best "transformer" award)...

i felt the movie was okay- although i liked part 1 better; and yea, that bomb- flicking scene was the exaggeration of the century...could have only been beaten by a bond flick..

...hey mave- where did you watch the movie..?? i'm curious, because i had watched the movie at cine wonder, thane..were you there too..??

ya.. even i felt the Transporter1 was much much better.. esp bcos of the BMW E38.. the scenes were very realistic and not too much graphics..

I saw the movie at R mall last week, BTW where r u located?

hmm....adya33....you have company..I for one did not enjoy 2 Fast and 2 Furious either...it was just 2 boring for 2 hrs:-). The whole movie could have been compressed into a 20 mins show on performance car antics..:-)...

A good car is a little about soul too i guess not just performance chips, tuning and all those techie stuff and so too a good car movie. I ain't seen much car movies but one of the sequences i enjoyed was the last chase in Gone in 60 secs...the Shelby GT 500...Elenor...gives the car an individuality which makes the sequence kinda cool....and then again the way the car dies down in the middle of the chase...well to cut a long story short...a good car movie needs to have a good story to back up the cars too :-)....

Drive on,
Shibu.

I too found 2F2F disappointing when compared to the first part. Sequels generally dont live up to the originals. The only part i liked in 2F2F was the silver Skyline. Gone in 60 secs was good and my favourite parts were the Ferrari garage vandal and the Diablo stealing scene
