Movies this week

Umrao Jaan: Awesome Movie. Of course no where compared to last Umrao Jaan. But Watching Aishwariya was a treat (once again). Good acting by Shabana Azmi.
An interesting trivia, The role for Khannum Jaan in this movie was played by Shabana Azmi and by Shaukat Kaifi (her mother) in Umrao Jaan (starring Rekha).

Johnny Mera Naam (1970)

Abhimman Would definitely write a long blog discussing this movie in a week or so.

Speak up!!!

Its 9:49 in the morning when I am writing this blog. Yesterday at around 12:00 p.m., I was with someone whom I know since an year now. Today I had breakfast with another senior with whom I have worked a lot.

But, What is this with me?
I felt this way twice before. Both leading to the conclusion that I am not good with girls. I become nervous when I talk to girls. But why this time??

I am talking about my incapability to keep someone engrossed for even a small time.
The first time when I realised this was when I went to meet a girl who was an old friend from school. I thought I would have so much to talk about. We would laugh, enjoy and stuff. But when I was with her, I didn't have anything to speak. Uff!! It was so embarrassing. After a brief sad talk for about 10 minutes, when I sat back in the car, It came to back to me-"Dude, you could have asked her about Saawariyaan!! You know girls liked Ranbir Kapoor! Or may be you could have started the topic on where are our common frien…

Movies this weekend

Saw 5 movies this weekend (All Hindi) :)

Sangharsh (1999): Indianised "Silence of Lambs". But I liked it even more than I liked Silence of Lambs. The simple reason being everything was in Indian context. For me, Preity Zinta's story was more convincing than the story of the trainee in Silence of Lambs. Akshay Kumar is as usual great. Ashutosh Rana is brilliant. :)

Kyun! Ho Gaya Naa: Poor story line I believe. Everything was wierd , yet predictable. Vivek Oberoi's worst performance.

Chameli: One of the very few movies where I find Kareena good. Good acting and strong storyline.

Gunda: :) Movie made for IITians. :)

Rangeela: GodMax!! I think I did not see it before.

Road To Ladakh (2002): Irfaan Khan movie. Nothing good except some good Irfaan Khan acting.

Ugly Aur Pagli

Exact copy of 'My Sassy Girl'. But a terrible movie. Ranvir Shorey was good. But the film was a big bore overall. I actually slept once while watching the movie. :(

A resolution: At any point of time in my 3rd year, Average Number of Hindi Movies I see daily would not exceed 1.0. Its fine today: 14 in 15 :)

Kismat Konnection, Maachis, Kuch Tum Kaho Kuch Hum Kahe

Watched these three movies last week.

Kismat Konnection: Idea was OK. But two doubts for the director: Why did you take Vidya Balan?? It was like a love story between a kid and friend's elder sister. Overall OK types.

Maachis: GODMAX movie.

Kuch Tum Kaho Kuch Hum Kahe: Again the same thing, OK types movie. Another boring family drama with a funny script.
