2 in a go!

Its quite an achievement for a person like me to watch 2 movies in a single day! And before you get your mind running around, I saw them both at home on DVD. I watched Bheja Fry and Salaam-e-Ishq. You might say " saw them NOW??? They were released ages ago!" But yes, I saw them now. For me watching the movie anytime is a bliss!

Both the movies belonged to totally different genre and I loved them both. Bheja Fry was simply hilarious. The dialogues, the dialogues delivery, the picturisation/presentation was just too good! Even now when I think of certain scenes in the movie, I can't stop smiling.

Salaam-e-Ishq on the other hand was a mix of romance, comedy, drama and tragedy! The way the 6 stories were intertwined into one movie was quite good. Although I found the roles of Sohail Khan and Isha Koppikar quite stupid. It was very bad attempt/version of slapstick comedy.

I was never a fan of Govinda but I still felt that his role was a little stretched out.

Anil Kapoor looks as sexy as he can get minus the few shots where he had a completely shaved-off look! He looks ughhh in that style. Juhi Chawla looks as charming as ever! I've always liked her.

John Abraham also did complete justice to his role. In fact he did it quite brilliantly. But must say, the voice of Adnan Sami didn't suit him...where he was singing the title track of the movie. Vidya Balan was great as ever! I think she's simply superb! The way her face emotes is awesome! I will always be in her fan following list!

Ayesha Takia looked so different from her role in the movie "
Dor". I do not remember any of her other movies so can't comment more on her looks. I had loved her performance in Dor. In this movie it was just an OK performance. What to say about Akshaye Khanna. I've always found his smile quite charming! And DH always gets jealous when I praise any of the male actors! Hehehe...

Thats that for the movies. Its another story that I was up till 2:30 AM yesterday night or shall I say till today morning (:P ) watching them. And its still another story that I woke up with a heavy head and ready to doze off at work! But that is not and will never be a reason to stop me from staying up late watching movies again!!

Lets see what movies I can get to see next week. I'm planning either to watch "
Cheeni Kum" or "Life in a...Metro". Lets see if I succeed or not!


  1. Ohh..two films in a day, thats some achievement!!
    During jawani, I once watched two consecutive shows in two different movies halls (not located in same multiplex)..

    Dunno abt Bheja Fry but other one was truely Saalam-e-eeeeeeks!!!

    Kuknoor went horribly wrong with casting.
    Karnad looked too old for his wife!! and Kuknoor himself appeared too soft/goody-goody kind to pull off that kind of negative role.

    And dialogue-baazi between two main characters was pedestrian, not at all convincing.

    Somehow Kuknoor managed to deliver a good storyline, that is his specialty I guess.

    Abt Ayesha Takia, I can write a whole thesis but won't do coz wifey might land up here and read my this comment!!
    Btw, check out her first movie 'Socha Na Tha', and then listen to its songs!! I'm sure you'll love them!
    Its simple,clean and beautiful....err I mean movie not Ayesha!!

  2. Hey stone! Yes for me its quite an achievement. But it seems you did not like Salaam-e-Ishq. But for us mortals who get to watch movies probably once in 3-4 months..sometimes even more, any movie looks like a yummy delicious desert which we lap up at any given chance.

    I agree with the Girish Karnard and Nagesh Kukunoor part. Their roles were that would be easily forgotten. But I really liked Ayesha Takia and Gul Panag's interaction with each other and basically it was them who took the story forward. And as you said, the storyline probably did all the work. It was a good one.

    Last time I had seen the movie "Honeymoon Travels" which Ih ad heard was a major flop but I enjoyed it too! So either its my tastes that differ from all in general or any movie is good movie as I said earlier. :D

  3. want to see bheja too.. and cheeni kum.. btw, cute kid u hav got

  4. itw, you must see bheja fry! Vinay's acting is just too good! And thanks for the compliment for the kid! Cute and badmash!

  5. Well, even I enjoyed Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd, specially Rima Sen and Kay Kay Menon bits :-) , in all it was good fun!
