   A very nice movie, simple and too the point. A "kuch nahi" person finds he has about 3 months left on planet earth and goes about saying goodbye to loved ones and life in his unassuming and quiet way. Vinay Pathak does a wonderful job as the lead, especially when he confesses his love to a girl he has loved since childhood using dumb charades. He makes sure that not a single eye remains dry in the movie hall. If you are expecting world altering truths or a hard hitting storyline then this is not the movie for you. It is a simple story that is told beautifully. Hats off to the director.

Rating: 4/5

Dostana : Review

   A typical Karan Johar style movie...amazing locations, good songs and lotsa drama and romance. Two guys pretending to be gay for the sake of accommodation..fall for their best friend who is also thier room mate. Later on drama unfolds. A bit in the face compared to Bollywood movies with loads off double meaning jokes and even more direct non veg jokes.

Star Cast :
Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bacchan and John Abraham (Oh n there is a Bobby Deol..although I don't why as he looks dumb in front of John and Baby B)

Rating : 2.5/5

My Take : Enjoyable if u like Karan Johar movies.

Movie Reviews - Fashion, Roadside Romeo

Roadside Romeo 

A cute movie. Definitely watchable once. The only voice-over I did not like was Kareena. the music is ok ok. I loved the "Indianness" of the film inspite of it being co-produced by Walt Disney.

Music Rating- 1.5/5
Movie Rating- 3/5


   A good movie, not up to Page 3 or chandni bar level but good enough. A nice performance by Priyanka Chopra. Kanagna seems to give the same expressions in all movies. One bad point, it is implied that all designers are gay in the movie, which is a generalisation I didn't like. Also the Indian film industry needs to stop typecasting gays as overly feminine versions (Bobby Darling clones) . Awesome music with the tracks a very logical part of the movie.
The main failure of the movie : its length!!! OMG! I spent the last 30 mins waiting for the movie to end and was no longer interested in the story!!!

Music Rating- 4/5
Movie Rating- 2.5/5

Crying in the Rain

I got this as a forward.... not sure who is the author...but i really liked it. So hear it is :

I’ll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I’ve got my crying and I know how to hide
All my sorrows and pain
I’ll do my crying in the rain

If I wait for stormy skies
You won’t know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You’ll never know that I still love you so
Only in heart'll remain
I’ll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from heaven
Could never wash away my memories
Since we’re not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you’ll never see

Someday when my crying is done
I’m gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool but till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
I’ll do my crying in the rain

I’ll do my crying in the rain...

The Zoya Factor : Review

This is basically a love story of a Karol Bagh girl with an MBA degree and a job as an Ad exec. The story is decidedly bollywood script like but fun nonetheless. You get involved in Zoya's joys and sorrows within the first two chapters and stay with her till the end. The author seems extremely inspired by cricket and the controveries  of BCCI. The hero seems inspired by Dhoni (are his eyes brown by any chance?). The villian by Jagmohan Dalmiya and some characters seem modeled on Balaji, Bhajji, Pathan and Sreesanth. 

My Verdict :-

Book : The Zoya Factor
Author : Anuja Chauhan
Genre : chick-lit
Rating : 3.5/5

Definitely readable for girls who read romances and like happy endings.

Golmaal Returns

Basic story : saas-bahu serial watcher Ekta (Kareena) always doubts her hubby Ajay Devgan. So he lies about his whereabouts when he doesn't come home one night. This leads to a lot of complications, a murder mystery, blah blah, blah. Shreyas Talpade, an actor with a lot of potential is wasted in a 2 bit role. Arshad Warsi seems more psycho than any of the other characters, which is saying something, Also Arshad...isn't it time you lost some weight??? The 4 heroines are just eye-candy, with no real role. Tushaar Kapoor is the saving grace of the movie. The Golmaal movies are the only place where I like him. I wonder if it is because he needs to keep his mouth shut in the movie? 

My Verdict

Music : 0.5/5 star. not worth hearing, especially as Golmaal had very catchy tunes and the comparison is inevitable.
Movie : 2/5  stars. Watch it only if you can leave your brains outside the movie hall and forget Golmaal.
