Bollywood Actors’ Take on Terrorist Attack On Mumbai


Mumbai has seen probably the worst terrorist attack in the last two decades and everyone is talking about it. Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan have expressed their concerns on their blogs and here is what some of the others have said -

“I am in total disbelief and shock! It is high time the govt stops appealling to us to remain calm after such things happen. It is no point remaining calm. It is now time to react! I have been glued my television set all night watching it all unfold. I think it is a failure of our Intelligence department,” said Farhan Akhtar.

While Sonu Sood said, “It’s horrible. I could not get a wink of sleep last nite. What is the world coming to? What a cowardly act it is. Killing the innocent will get them nowhere. It has been shocking. Last nite I was attending an event at the Marriot when I heard the news. We left early. It’s a shame that a few of them are killing people randomly for their own needs. What will they achieve by doing all this? I pray for all the people who have been held hostages. I hope they will be out soon.”

“It’s been a terrible night. I have not slept the whole night. One of my good friends was stuck in Oberoi when it all began. She gave me a call at 2 am and sounded very scared. But luckily she managed to escape out after that. With all this things happening around at regular intervals, the world no longer seems a safe place. This disaster has literally brought our Mumbai to a grinding halt,” sighed Prachi Desai.

Celina Jaitley said, “I was glued to the TV all night. I couldn’t sleep a wink. My dad was in a state of panic and kept on calling from Lebanon wondering what was happening to all of us! Throughout our ordeal, I was continuously in touch with my family and friends.”

Oye Lucky Lucky Oye Movie Review


Oye Lucky Lucky Oye is very very intelligent film bound to be underestimated and ignored for the lack of big stars and exotic locations. The depth in the film’s plot, setting and narrative under the surface of a comedy really amazed me.One critic said, “Oye Lucky…” is a sly, shimmering mirror of a dysfunctional society always craving for more… not knowing where the greed to be upwardly mobile finally ends. The all-consuming impulses of the Indian middle-class, their craving to be seen on television and their desire to be heard above the daily din is used really well by director Bannerje.

The narration is miraculously liberated from the claustrophobia of middle-class ambitions to take us on a joyous bumpy caper ride. Not for a second do we feel the weight of the morality tale that lurks under the crowded front of the middleclass need and greed.”

Its a story of Lucky who grows up desiring everything that his childhood did not offer him at the suburbs of Delhi. He becomes a thief there by.

Unlike other crime capers, the director doesn’t want to justify Lucky, nor does he want us to judge him. He just keeps unfolding the story in which Lucky’s life as a thief is neither glamorous nor too much fun. Its not even squalid.

Abhay Deol does full justice to his role. He  is definitely one of the most underrated actors in the industry. Paresh Rawal is like wine and gets better and even better with every film. Every movie is like his best performance so far and that way I think he has even better to come.
I don’t want to give away too much. Go watch this film to see how an intelligent filmmaker can come up with an intelligent film break stereotypes and shunning cliches with the most simple ingredients.

Worth a dekho!

Sorry Bhai Movie Review

sorry bhai.jpg

Interesting films to watch this weekend. Sorry Bhai is one of them. Onir once again proves that his best skill is sensitive handling of turbulent relationships.”‘Sorry Bhai’ is the story of how a shy but charming young scientist Siddharth Mathur (Sharman Joshi), who travels to Mauritius for his elder brother Harshvardhan’s (Sanjay Suri) wedding, finds himself irressistably drawn to his brother’s fiancée Aaliyah (Chitrangda Singh) who also experiences the same feelings. They try their best to douse these feelings, but they keep coming back with renewed vigor, leading to several complications,” says Onir.Performances are amazing. Boman and Shabana need to special praise for their performances. They are actors par excellence. They have the same Honeymood Travels Chemistry between them which is a delight to watch. Shabana’s scenes with fiesty Chitrangada are also entertaining. Much subtle and enjoyable than telly’s saas-bahu drama.Chitrangada is one actress who I dunno why we dont see in mainstream cinema. She is beautiful, she is sexy and she is an amazing actress - she can definitely give all our reigning queens a run for their money. She is a wonderful mix of Smita Patel’s rawness, Shabana Azmi’s fiery and Tabu’s honesty.


Overall, this a movie that you should definitely watch after a cosy dinner on a chilly November Sunday, savouring a hot mug of coffee.

Ghajini Music Review

Aamir khan Ghajini New wallpaper (2)1.jpg

Ghajini’s music album has been finally released. Couldn’t wait to hear the full version of Guzarish when I saw its trailer with Aamir Khan looking his best with his six-pack abs and chiseled chest singing in the middle of the desert.As expected Ghajini’s music is good. It is similar to A.R Rahman’s recent compositions like Taare Zameen Par, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Yuvvraaj and Adah. The lyrics were penned down by Prasoon Joshi, as in Taare Zameen Par and an obvious influence of Gulzar sahab’s imagery and lyrical style is seen.The first song of the album called Guzarish is an extremely romantic number. Javed Ali as a vocalist offers a new fresh feel to the song. While we have Sonu Nigam humming in the background.The second song is Kaise Mujhe a rythmic number with soul-touching lyrics with Benny Dayal and Shreya Goshal singing the great composition to perfection. This is one song you would feel like dedicating your soul-mate.Aye Bachchoo sounds wierd out of the context of the film. It rather comes as a shock after the soulful Kaise Mujhe.Latoo brings forth Shreya Goshal’s versatility as a singer who sing all kinds of songs with great ease and perfection. This song has a gentle mix of hip hop and soft music. Its a foot tapping and a jazzy track.The last song is Behka which is more appealing visually with Aamir Khan in six different avataar. Its an average song otherwise.On the whole Ghajini’s music album offers you refreshing and entertaining film music that will grow on you eventually as you keep hearing it.

Its a must buy.
