Yesterday while driving to office I got a call from the person who sold Hotel Accord Metropolitan membership to me… She wished me Happy Birthday & said one more celebrity was celebrating his birthday today and asked did I know who he is???
- I said it was Shahid Kapoor & she said that was a news for her and she said it was someone else…
- Then I said it was Premji Ameran & again she said it was a news to her and she said the person was different…
Since I ran out of options she said it was Gautham Vasudev Menon’s birthday too… That made me think more special as he is one of my favorite directors… She said he is also a privileged member like me & she said she has called me after wishing him… I was doubly thrilled to be a a part of a club which had such celebrities & my favorite director as a member…
Then she said there was a complementary cake offered as a gift from the Hotel… Since I was busy treating my folks I asked my office admin to collect the cake form the hotel… The packing was nice and I thought I must share this cake with my parents & sister as I didn’t offer them for my birthday…
When I reached home & opened the box I was in for a shock… I got the cake which was supposedly prepared for Gautam Vasudev Menon :)… Though the cake neither had my name nor the flavor I requested I didn’t get angry… Gautam must have got my cake and would have wondered who Anand Nataraj was?? I just realized that I must have registered my name as AnandNataraj.Com so that he could have at-least hit my blog ;)… Not sure how he reacted or felt about the mix up… I was happy & the cake was really delicious… Gautam was good even in selecting the flavors he choose :)…
This is what i got :)…
Got to get old of an old friend with whom i’ve lot of stakes. Since its been a long while i wanted to catch hold of him and understand how he is going to reply my debts. So, we decided to have a long discussion and we went to Ampa Skywalk & there we decided to goto Milenge Milenge. There is nothing special about the movie and we must accept that this is a 6 year old movie. So, this is my review;
- Movie reminds me of Tamil movies of the 90’s and it was not bollyhoodish.
- It is not Kaminey Shahid or a Size Zero Kareena. So, it is hard to accept a lean Shahid & a chubby Kareena.
- Movie is too dragging & predictable.
- In spite it is not boring either. Movie runs fast & i’ve the title humming every where.
- Overall it is worth the money and worth watching once.
My favorite of the new generation is this Kapoors yes it is Shahid & Ranbir. Yesterday i went to see Chance Pe Dance starring Shahid Kapoor & Genelia De’souza. First half of the movie moves very fast with more fun and it is more of a present day young man’s struggle to make a career for himself in a new city.
Second half of the movie is not boring but it lacks the punch in it. Struggles are not highlighted and everything looks like happening like a cake-walk. Director has neither shown a mentor like Chack De nor makes it difficult for the Hero to make it Big.
So here goes my review;
- Shahid has rocked in acting & dance. He has done his part well.
- Genelia has done her part well.
- Music is average.
- Director has handled a good subject very lightly/casually.
Second half hero takes up a job of a dance master in a school and he makes them come first in competition. Dance performance was shown so lightly and the schools wins the cup as expected.
Then there is a twist where in his fathers shop in demolished and shahid returns home to stay with his father to give him a moral boost. His father sees the reality show only then and asks his son to get back.
In climax hero is late for the show and he easily convinces the judge and he wins it easily. Infact in the reality show we are never shown the competitors and it is only shahid and it becomes as if hero makes it unopposed.
I really love subjects where someone really fights it hard to create a niche in his career. Something which is shown well in Rocket Singh. Anyways for a normal cinema goer it will not be boring and it is worth the money.
Went to Kaminey yesterday night and the movie was really goodâ€¦ First half runs very fast and the momentum lacks in the second halfâ€¦ Shahid Kapoor has matured as an actor and he has done justice to the dual roleâ€¦ Since the movie is a Hero centric movie Priyanka Chopra doesnâ€™t have much to do but she has utilizedÂ the given opportunityâ€¦ Also the climax is stretched and confuses viewersâ€¦ Expectation from Vishal is much high and we expect directors of his caliber to be perfect… I think censors have done injustice by awarding A certificate to the movieÂ asÂ I dont think it has much violance… Over all we can give 4 out of 5â€¦
This is the movie’s plotâ€¦
It is a story about two brothers, Charlie & Guddu who happen to be twins. Charlie lisps while Guddu has a stutter problem. They are as different as chalk and cheese. And they canâ€™t stand the sight of each other. Till one fateful rainy night, when their lives cross. Charlie gets mixed up in a deathly get rich quick scheme, while Guddu realizes that the love of his life, Sweety, has unwittingly put a price on his head. Itâ€™s a dark comic ride there on as the brothers are sucked into a world of drugs, guns and money. Their lives collide head on with the lives of gangsters, rebel soldiers, rogue politicians and crooked cops. In the middle of this crazy adventure, the brothers have to run to protect themselves, their dreams, their love…. And most importantly, realize that all they have is each other.
