Saturday started on a bright note... after all, after a long spell of no movies, there i was about to watch 2 movies.. back to back!!!!!!!!!!! The thrill of watching 2 movies is better than.. than.. watching just one movie, i guess!!
Movie no 1 - Jaane Tu..... I went hoping it would be good.. And surprise surprise... it turned out to be good too!!! Ah.. a breath of fresh air, this movie.... cute characters, great songs... refreshingly cute (cant think of other synonyms!!!) Imran Khan and Genelia... obviously i like the guy better :-). A very very cozy movie.. reminds one of old college ( or PG) days!!! He looks so different from all other heroes.. and the concept of non violence bit is unlike other movies.. that was what was refreshing.. no melodramas.. just plain friendship and romance.. gooey, sticky romance (do you get what i mean)? We picked the tickets for morning show ( ridiculously early.. 10 am).. and the theatre was packed... there is not a single part of the movie that was boring.. it is funny, romantic, comic (a repeat i know) .. all in the right parts! Actually the reviews were not so great.. TOI has given 2.5 stars as i read with a sinking heart... i would have given at least 4 stars if not 5. Even my husband liked it.. so while my review may make one think that it is a chic flick, an all mush movie... well, think again! Oh, and the music was also great.. what else can one expect from AR Rahman. He is fabulous.
Movie no 2 - Sarkar Raj... I have been trying to watch this movie since last month. So Jaane Tu got over at 12.45 and off we went to the next theatre to catch Sarkar Raj at 12.50! The initial half an hour.. was kind of lost to me... a lot of close ups, shadows etc.. took me sometime to get used to it! I started liking the movie post interval actually! Amitabh Bachchan was superb as usual. The god of cinema...He had such an impassive face when killing chander!!!! Power exuding from him when he was getting ppl killed .. A matter of fact tone.. when he tells anita that my men killed your dad sometime back...he is a true rockstar. How do all these ppl emote like this? A dark movie.. does all this really happen in politics .. i guess it does.. look at the politics at work to draw a parallel!!
So, a charming saturday in all!!! I love watching back to back movies.. last time watched Bheja Fry and Spiderman.. this is a first in the sense that i have not seen 2 Hindi movies together till now!!!
So next looking forward to ... dont know which other movie is releasing now..... :-)
