I finally started living in my new (rented) apartment in Bangalore, with no great movie to look for on TV (not sure if I should blame TataSky for that). The only option was to re-explore my old DVD collection. No rewards for guessing, I picked Delhi 6 – one of my all-time favorite movies (as most of my closest people already know). I loved it so much the first time I watched it, I immediately bought its DVD and happen to have watched it more than once (being modest).

 

While I’m about to watch it (n+1) th time today, the only question running through my mind is – why would anyone not like Delhi 6? That’s a question for those to answer who can’t appreciate this phenomenal creation. I belong to the proud-others, who’re sane enough to understand and digest its perfection.

Slumdog Millionaire

A Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?". He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.

Great movie with amazing background (and foreground) score, I still feel this movie is fairly overrated. It closely touches the bitter reality and the aspects of 'Real' India unknown to many. However I'm not sure if I would want to highlight it too much.

Global recognition for A R Rahman's music is a step ahead in marking the Indian Art industry presence in the world media. Otherwise, A R Rahman has done far superior compositions many of which are sadly ignored.

Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na

A good movie... 6 on the scale of 7: C-SAT!

The right weightage to every character and a good balance of the flow. Especially, if you're into theatre abd plays, you're bound to love it; Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Paresh Rawal, Rajat Kapoor, Anuradha Patel... it really was a rich movie!

The lead actress (heroine?) was "cute" as Barkha could decide, and the lead-actor (Imran Khan) wasn't bad either. And the Jignes Patel guy kept reminding me of Pradeep (although he was sitting right next to me).

I really want to write a lot more, but can't think of anything. It's 5.52 in the morning and I should hit the bed.

In any case, it's a great movie... do watch it! You'll like it for sure...

Rang De Basanti!!
LOSE CONTROL!!!

Watching the 3rd consecutive movie which made me feel something to be proud about Bollywood. The Movie I would simply say is the BEST among the Hindi movies I have ever seen so far.

With an essence of patriotism the movie portrays the fact that no matter where we are, what we do and to where we belong, we still are a part of the community called Indians. The best part about the movie is that there isn’t a call for the youth to fight for the country or to devote their life for the nation, but the fact that how these characters who look to me among just like one of us, who have nothing to do with all the CRAP as we all consider it to be get inside the heart of National issues, which then affects their personal lives and then they get in to taking the initiative for something which they always considered as Crap!!
