Movie Reviews & 500th post

Edit: Ya, just saw that this is my 500th post.  Yay 😀 Cold Mountain (2/5) Inspite of the splendid acting, cinematography and music, the movie left me cold. Dunno why. Inside Man (2.5/5) Spike Lee directed movie starring Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster and Clive Owen.  Sure recipe for a taut thriller, right? Unfortunately not. But…

Movie marathon and ratings

Watching movies endlessly these past few weeks.  But iam unable to find any time to write a detailed review of them. If and when i find time, i will write something detailed about the ones i liked.  As of now, a list of the movies and my ratings. Basic Instinct -1 (4/5) Taken  (4/5) A…

The 90s

The early 90s were the time when Gulshan Kumar and his T-Series ruled the roost.  There used to be some very tackily made movies starring newbies but with some great music.  You cringe when you see the video today, but just listen to the music and you know what i mean. Mohabbat, Inayat, Karam –…

Blog anniversary & Weekend movies

Now Watching – Shaurya

A supposedly rip-off of the Hollywood movie “A few good men“, Shaurya is not as bad as the reviews made it out to be. I havent seen the Hollywood original, so cant comment on it. The movie has some exceptional acting by Deepak Dobriyal, Kay Kay Menon. Rahul Bose is ok and Minissa Lamba is…

Krazzy 4 – Break Free

Now that both the versions of Break Free by Shah Rukh and Hrithik is out. The verdit is a no brainer. Hrithik simply blows away the competition. He is friggin awesome. +++

Weekend Music – Rozana (Nishabd)

No matter what the critics said, i absolutely loved Nishabd. Give me a movie on human relations any day than some sci-fi stuff. And this song is a favorite of mine. Though i cant seem to find the full song on youtube. Maybe the execution was a bit faulty, but you cant discount the guts…

U Me aur Hum – Music Review

After some fantabulous music in No Smoking, Vishal Bharadwaj is back with some real foot tapping music in Ajay Devgan’s directorial debut “U Me aur Hum“. Listen to Dil Dhkda, Jee Le and the title song version by Shreya Ghosal. Simply mindblowing music. The lyrics in Dil Dhakda is real fun and peppy. A great…
