My take on some movies...

Badmaash Company...I liked this movie main for its punchline..that if a person is intelligent and Sharp mind, then if he puts it in the right direction, then only he can lead a happy life...Otherwise he is doomed..sooner or later destiny will catch up with him..And then its quite entertaining also..Shahid as usual entertains and looks good, Anushka is Ok in acting, but lacks in looks.Veer and Chang are OK.Rest of the cast...Anupam kher..looks too old, Kiran Sippy and Pawan Malhotra just do their job.But all in all its entertaining.

My Name is Khan....This movie confirms that kajol is one of her kind, she just lights up the screen and I enjoyed those parts only where she is present, plus music is good.Why all retarded people are shown to walk with a stoop?

Well Done Abba:.very unique..with Hyderabdi back ground..this is a satire on our government, where even Babdis(ponds), can be stolen...this is a good movie and grows on you slowly..Boman Irani.everybody knows is good and so is Illa arun, But here Minisha Lamba and Sameer Dattani score .they are excellent and I liked Ravi Kishen....movie with a message and an entertainer too.

Once Upon A time...Main thing I didnt like about this movie is that they have tried to show a criminal like a robinhood..this is not acceptable to me..in most of the movie, they dont show that part of life from where these criminals get the money to do all these so called good deeds, and they dont show where they are hurting the country and its residents..I prefer the movies like Ab tak Chappan etc.
If one is so good at heart, then why be a criminal, why not be a common man and help the people.
.Ajay Devgan looks a  good don, this type of role suits hime well,but Kangna is looking fabulous, she is the highlight of this movie. Imraan Hashmi is his usual self, Prachi Desai seems to be clearly uncomfortable in this bold role..

Aisha:..Very light movie, and an entertainer, with designer settings and clothes.Abhay deol and Sonam Kapoor both look good.Loved this song..mithi mithi.Its about Sonam, who always tries to set the pairs by her own choice and parameters, but it doesnt happen in life that way..love is natural and none knows where it may happen..and she learns it by her own love.
Saw many more...

I had seen My name is Khan. I dint like the movie very much..But I wrote an article for my newsportal after watching it commenting that presently a movie trend in Bollywood is featuring detarded peoples..(Black, Ghajini, 3 Idiots (well exceptional children), and My name is Khan), etc.

SG said...

Thanks for the review. Will keep that in mind.

starry said...

Renu thanks for all the movie reviews,have not seen any of them but would like to.

Renu said...

Babli: yes badmaash company and well done abba both are good.

Covknitkpr1:sure :) will do that, as I want to read your blog regularly.

Sandhya:.Try to see Well done Abba.its really good.

Tomz: even I didnt like it very much, movie can be about anything, but it must have some substance.

SG: yeah sure!

Dreamer said...

I also really enjoyed Badmaash Company, but I deed feel that My Name is Khan was a trying a bit too hard so ended up a little bit over the top. The lead actors did turn in some amazing performances, though. Yet to see Well done Abba.

Bikramjit said...

AIsha havenot seen it but got it downloaded so will watch it coming weekend...

I liked badmaash company and Once upon a time ..
My name is Khan its ok and yeha like you Kajol has always been my favourite ...

Well done Abba:- did not even hear about this movie until now ...

I hate going to cinemas alone and here people hardly got time :) so i usually miss on movies till some friend comes and i drag them to the cinema ..

Deeps said...

Even I enjoyed Badmaash company. Loved the bonding between the boys. Not much of a fan of Anushka though.

Immensely liked Aisha. Loved the whole presentation of the movie...a welcome change from those typical yashraj interpretation of urban lifestyle.

I'm yet to watch the rest of the movies you mentioned. Once upon a time is a I'm looking forward to watching.Have heard raving reviews of it.

Tranquility said...

My thoughts exactly on "Badmash Company" and "My name is Khan". Waiting for the others to release on DVD! Thanks.

Gouri Guha said...

Earlier I thought if Badmaash Company was worth watching.Reading your comment I think I'll go for it.

As for My nname is Khan it was so so for me. Renu liked last line you wrote about this film, so true.

As for Once Upon a Time, it was not very impressive.

The other two, didn't get the chance to watch them.
Nice read and good reviews.

I like all the above movies... except I havent seen aisha as yet.. I loved Badmaash company.. I mean it kept me engrossed.. My name is khan has become one of my favourites adding another SRK-Kajol movie to my list..Well done was a cool movie though I had problems understanding the accent... But i loved it.. It teaches a pleasant lesson and is a bog blow to the govt..
I don't know why U didnt like Once Upon a time.. I loved it.. I liked it bcoz this is what happens.. Though I didnt want ajay Devgn to die bt all movies dont have a happy ending.. :(

sm said...

thanks for the review

A said...

I only liked Aisha out of this list. Hated MNK and BC. Have not watched Once..Mumbai

You seem to love Hindi movies.

Renu said...

Starry: try watching well done Abba!

Dreamer: MNIK has nothing real about it and thats why I didnt like it except kajol.

Bikramjit: Thats the problem that good movies dont get proper publicity.
My hubby cant sit in cinema hall, so I watch most of the movies at home only:)

Chitra: I liked your blog, so blogrolled you:)

Chanz: I didnt like OUATIM because I dont like criminals being glamourise3d..it gives a wrong impression to so many people.

Sm:.my hobby:)

A:I just love movies..since I watch only on TV I dont give my tske on English ones as they are old ,yesterday only I saw Jerry Mecguire and loved it:)

The Holy Lama said...

Watching too many movies lately? Nice short reviews, helps one decide what to see and what to avoid.

Renu said...

The Holy Lama:I watch many movies all the time.in any language, but write about a few, specially the ones I liked or disliked..sometimes to publicise some good movies.

Renu said...

Deeps: Aisha has a certain sophistication and reality around it, which noe of yash raj films bother even.Fan..I dont even like Anushka.

Tranquility:havent you watched ..Well done Abba?its good movie.

Gauri Guha: I will wait for your verdict on BC..well done Abba is also a good one from Shyam benegal.

Babli said...

Wish you and your family a very Happy Janmashtami.
